Dual Turntables. Restoring the Classic Duals.

FAQ you asked, we answered.

What service do you provide?

All our Duals are dissembled, parts replaced as needed, cleaned and reassembled with the proper grease and lubricants. All the features on our Duals work, from multifunction to manual mode and with the proper servicing and maintenance these tables run like a Swiss clock and will last for years and years.

I found a Dual Turntable on eBay for a great deal. What are your thoughts?

Don’t be fooled by some of the ones you see on Ebay. If the platter spins and the tonearm plays the album, they call it good working condition.

I was given an old Dual 1019. Can you tell me more about it?

The Dual 1019 without doubt is duals finest turntable they ever built. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to try out almost every dual turntable made and the 1019 has remained in my home reference system for over twenty years. The friction free dynamically balanced tonearm is a work of art in it’s self. The arm tube is much more thicker and rigid, tracks as low as ½ gram, direct dial stylus force and anti-skating compensation, cue and pitch control and elastically damped counterbalance with rapid and fine adjust. The dynamically balanced platter is the heaviest dual ever made 7 ½ pounds!! absolutely world class.

What about the 1229 model? Is it any good?

The 1229 was the full sized chassis Dual with a 12″ platter that they made in the 70s and it is without doubt the most sought after Dual. I’ve had a numerous amount of requests for this particular model and it’s been highly regarded as Duals most refined table. Some of the most cutting edge technology and features have been introduced on the 1229 table. It was a Hi Fi automatic turntable designed to professional standards, a table totally without compromise. It had the longest tonearm ever designed into an automatic turntable and was supported by four identical low-friction needle bearings in a gimble system, to assure the absolute minimum of pivot friction.
