Technics SL-QL1 photos.

I am loving this turntable. The automatic functions work very well, including the cool motorized cueing/cut selecting (raise the arm and advance the cartridge with > and < buttons). The only inconvenient thing is that the platter will not rotate with the cover up, so record cleaning must be done before putting a record on the platter, or by spinning the platter by hand.The way this thing sounds, I can live with that.

This is one of those sleeper Technics units. The lid is well dampened, like the early linear trackers (ie SL-7, SL-10) and it's far enough into the engineering curve that's it's pretty reliable.

I have this model that I purchased when I was in the Navy back in 1982. I still have it and it still works like the day she was new!
