Elegant and shiny lineup near-topper - this is when one steps from "record player" to "turntable".
Stable, reliable big brushless direct-drive Hall motor with Quartz Synchro Pulse (not Sony's Magnedic or the Denon equivalents) with serious electrical and stability specifications.
Also pitch controls for each speed, automatic features such as optical led/phototransistor end-of-disc auto-stop, VTA adjustment.
If the PL-570 weighs almost as much as the PL-C590, the diecast mainplate helps, it looses a bit in the s/n ratio : 74dB vs. 70dB...
Not much else to say : it looks good, it works well, it is very well built - the PL-570 is a good 1970s music maker.
It even remained available for three full years, until late 1979, at a time lineup rotation started its exponential rise.
The 1979 version is the XL-A700S : the very same but with a grey matte base instead of the "old world" wood.
I don't know if that version was exported. (PL-570S ?)
