DESCRIPTION

For Sale:  This may be the cleanest and best functioning Dual turntable I have come across over the past few decades. Made in Germany.

Working 100%. All original. Includes a high end classic Grado cartridge with what I assume is an original Grado stylus and it sounds great. Full range, great highs and bass, no distortion or hum. No skipping. Not sure what model phono cartridge it is but suspect it is one of their more expensive models- the cartridge and stylus are probably worth about the same as the turntable itself...

This is a fully automatic belt drive turntable and all the features are working correctly. To play an album you just move the Start lever to the left. The strobe lights up, the platter spins up, tonearm raises, moves to first track, very gently lowers, and album plays. At the end of the record the tonearm raises, moves back to holder, lowers, and the table powers off. Works perfectly every single time. The speed is very steady as evidenced by the strobe markings and the pitch control is working correctly. Both speeds are working correctly. The Stop switch works correctly.

Besides wiping a little dust off this it needed no cleaning. Dust cover has no chips or cracks and shows very little wear. Hinges are in good shape.
