ANTIQUE AUDIO: Buying a JVC L-F210 Fully Automatic, Direct Drive Turntable (with eBay Buyers Guide)

 For a couple of years I’ve been looking for a good quality, fully automatic, direct drive turntable for around £200 GBP. I started looking on eBay and last year I found one… a JVC L-F210. After putting in a few bids, I won and it was delivered in August 2021. In this video I take you through the unboxing, testing and setting up the L-F210 and also give you an eBay Buyers Guide.
