COMPLETELY RESTORED / REFURBISHED
 VINTAGE PHASE LINEAR TURNTABLE
 PHASE LINEAR 8000-II (aka Pioneer PL-L1000)
 TANGENTIAL TRACKING / LINEAR TRACKING
 FULLY AUTOMATIC / DIRECT DRIVE
 TURNTABLE
 #...552S
 Made in Japan
 Circa late 1979 thru 1980
for sale
 

 This was a Phase Linear branded version of Pioneer's 'Flag Ship' turntable for this period. We have had 2 of these (the other was the Pioneer version), for over 6 years, waiting for the 'right technician' to challenge them. FINALLY, our current senior technician was up to the task, and restored this one beautifully and CORRECTLY!

 
ü Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves disassembly (not an easy task on this table), cleaning inside and out, COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below. Total technician time to restore 11 hrs (see above collage of bench shots).
 
 
ü Partial disassembly of 'Arm Lift Mechanism' , cleaned and re-lubed
 
 
ü Fresh, New and Correct 'Arm Mechanism' belt installed.
 
 
ü End of Play lift and return set with oscilloscope at test point 4 and adj internal VR9.
 
 
ü Arm transport shuttle control cleaned and re-lubed
 
 
ü Lateral arm motion rails and guide rollers cleaned and re-lubed
 
 
ü Arm lift motor re-lubed
 
 
ü Tone-arm Lead-In adjusted until perfect for mid point lead in
 

 
ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.
 
 
ü Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening.
 
 
ü Disassembled and re-built feet / pods

 
ü Tone-Arm 'shipping lock' fabricated and fitted
 
 
ü Platter speed checked and verified for 100% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following above restoration.
 
 
ü Platter replaced as the original had a 'few hundredths' of an inch of 'run-out, then tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out'. Most folks probably wouldn't have noticed, but I did after playing for a while. So back to the shop for another original platter it went.
 
 
ü Original dustcover had a 3-Stage buff, and looks INCREDIBLE, essentially AS NEW. Hinges adjusted to hold it upright as well.
 
 
ü We also installed and adjusted a new, Audio Technica elliptically cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it on the ORIGINAL PHASE LINEAR headshell. (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.)
 You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.
 
 
ü Cartridge / head shell ‘overhang’ adjusted using shop calibration scale.
 
 
ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record
 
 
ü Unit test cycled through 30+ LP’s flawlessly
 

 Great performing, sounding and INCREDIBLE looking Pioneer PL-L1000
(read Phase Linear 8000-II), Linear Tracking, Direct-Drive, Fully-Automatic turntable. Following the above restoration, it looks fabulous, now functions correctly and performs well.
 
 From the Vinyl Engine website page on this table,
"The
Phase-Linear 8000-II  comes fitted with a linear tracking tone-arm which traces the sound grooves on the record linearly in the same way that the master cutting machine cuts the grooves in the first place.  This means that the linear system is superior to conventional offset tone-arms in many ways:
 
 (1) There is no tracking error thus preventing the generation of harmonic distortion.
 (2) In principle, there is no generation of inside force and so the crosstalk and inter-modulation distortion are improved and the positioning of the sound image is stabilized.
 (3) The tone-arm pipe is linear for optimum lateral balance.
 (4) It is possible to shorten the effective length of the tone-arm and so this feature makes for a low equivalent mass and high rigidity.
 This combination also reduces resonance in the parts and compound resonance.   Sub-functions of the
Phase-Linear 8000-II include auto lead-in, auto-return, auto cut, quick repeat, quick play, quick stop, stylus pressure direct readout, arm height adjustment, cueing device and free stop hinges."

 
 This table is a 'blast' to use. As the owner of Oak Tree Enterprises, I personally auditioned and did the final testing on this table. I had a few further 'fine tune / tweaks' done by the technician and probably played more than 30 albums on this.
 
 Phase Linear 8000-II Turntable Features:
  

 
- Linear / Tangential Tracking, 'Pivoted' tone arm (and unlike most 'Linears', you aren't stuck using a 'P-Mount' cartridge!!! Yea!)
 - Quartz, PLL, Hall Effect Motor,
 - Direct-Drive Platter
 - VERY HEAVY, (4.75lbs w/ mat) Aluminum Alloy, 310mm Platter
 - Fully-Automatic Operation (arm starts and auto returns when finished)
 - Straight, Pivoted, Linear Tracking, Tubular Tone-arm
 - ‘Universal’ head-fits Standard ‘Half Inch’ mount cartridge
 (allows for quick cartridge changes w/ additional ‘loaded’ head shells)
 - 'No Touch' 'Shuttle / Jog' wheel for lateral arm movement (one of the most fun things about using this table, and it works VERY well following tech work)
 - Adjustable Tracking force
 - 33 1/3 and 45 RPM selection
 - 'Height Adjustable', Rubber Isolation feet for vibration dampening and most importantly with this table, Leveling.
 

 Phase Linear 8000-II TURNTABLE SPECIFICATIONS:

 Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this Phase Linear 8000
as stated above and 'certified' it's ready to go! (total tech time ~11 hours). Following restoration was tested for speed accuracy, rumble, wow & flutter, noise isolation, tone-arm return function and lubed internal mechanism. Original dust cover is in fabulous shape after a 3-Stage plastic buff / hand polish, with only very minor blems. Table looks good and works great! Again, comes with a new, fresh Audio-Technica, Elliptically cut, diamond stylus, AT-95 cartridge. Ready to play!!!
 Note: These tables, like many 'higher end' tables are VERY critical of 'Level Placement', and it will come with a bubble / spirit level to assist in that task (yes, the feet are adjustable with more than adequate height range). Measures 19.25" wide x 17.75" deep x 6" tall and weighs a HEAVY 27 lbs unpacked.
Will include an ‘e’ copy / pdf download of the Pioneer PL-L1000 Owners / users manual and the service manual if purchaser desires. Also has original box and packing. Comes with our standard 90 day limited warranty.

ü Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit .
 

 
ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.
 
ü Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening.

ü New lift surface fixed Arm Cuing mechanism and height corrected
 
 
ü Platter speed checked and verified for 100% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following above restoration.
 
ü Platter tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out'

ü OrtofonOM-10’ cartridge inspected, reinstalled and tone arm adjustments optimized for it

ü Tone Arm weighting and ‘tracking’ screw adjusted for proper tracking with test tone record and O-Scope.

ü Output cables are High Quality, heavy shielded interlink cables installed with GOLD plated RCA connectors

ü Original dustcover had a 3-Stage buff, and looks VERY NICE! Hinges adjusted to hold it upright as well. (note; this is an incredibly well designed and built dust cover, and is of acrylic about 3 times the thickness of most covers) We did photo some very light scuffs, but had to get the light 'just right' to get them to show up in photos. Almost not worth mentioning (see photos above).

ü Cartridge / head shell ‘overhang’ adjusted using shop calibration scale.
 
ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record
 
ü Unit test cycled through 12+ LP’s flawlessly

 You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.
 

 Great performing, sounding and INCREDIBLE looking Kenwood KD-770D, Direct-Drive, Quarter-Automatic turntable. Following the above restoration, it looks fabulous, now functions correctly and performs well.

From an original Kenwood KD-770D brochure, "Many turntables cause a loss in musical energy during reproduction through insufficient structural rigidity. With the Kenwood "DL" system, it has been possible to integrated the motor into a solid block of "ARCB" (anti resonant resin-concrete). This in turn is mechanically linked with the tone-arm assembly, so that the entire unit forms one rigid integrated whole. This has important results in terms of accuracy, improved tone-arm tracking and better sound quality."


 
Beautiful table overall. Other than some fine scratches in the dust cover as mentioned earlier, the only other cosmetic items worth mentioning are some black 'smudges' on the platter edges and a small ding near the 'Speed' switch, but again, nothing distracting. This is an elegant and modern looking table. While it appears to be 'Piano Black', it's finish has what appears to be Ebony wood grain thru the clear finish if you look closely.

 You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.
 

 Great performing & sounding Sharp RP-7705, Direct-Drive, Fully-Automatic, and Programmable turntable. Following the above restoration, it looks good, now functions correctly and performs well.
 
OPTONICA RP-7705 Turntable Features:

- Fully-Automatic Operation
- Programmable Track Selection via Sharps A.L.P.D. (
Automatic Program Locate Device) (meaning it will play 'one' cut, from 1-7, that you select)

- Direct Drive platter
- Motor driven tone-arm functions
- Quartz Locked speed holds the platter speed 'rock solid' (de-featable if you wish 'user' contro
l)
- Separate 33.3 and 45 RPM User Pitch controls (when Quartz is switched off)

 - HEAVY, (2+ lbs) Aluminum Alloy, Platter
- 'Shallow-J', Tubular Tone-arm
- Head shell fits Standard ‘Half Inch’ mount cartridge
- Adjustable Tracking force
- Adjustable Anti-Skating force
- REAL Glass Dust Cover
- 33 1/3 and 45 RPM selection
 - Repeat Function to repeat entire record side
 - Rubber Isolation feet for vibration dampening

 

 Only a few minor cosmetic issues; 'finish wear' to front edge near left controls, 'finish blem' near cartridge alignment pin, glass top has been changed at some time to one with 4705 logo (see photos above). Only other issue with the table is that the tone-arm 'lock' is missing, meaning that if you move or ship the table, you would need to 'tie it down' with a wire tie or similar.
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this table (total tech time ~8+ hours), and following restoration was tested for speed accuracy, rumble, wow & flutter, noise isolation, tone-arm function at ‘end of record’. 'Programming Auto' functions work great! Simply press the cut you wish to hear, and the tone-arm move accurately to it. If you simply wish to hear the entire album side, then just press 'Start'!
Table looks good, sounds and works great!  Again, comes with an AT4012XE, Elliptically cut, diamond stylus, cartridge. Ready to play!!!
Measures 18.75" wide x 15.75" deep x 5" tall and weighs a HEAVY 23 lbs unpacked

ü Unit test cycled through 20+ LP’s flawlessly.

ü Original dustcover hinges are 'blown out' (as they're plastic), and while still intact, will not hold the dust cover up. Due to the condition of the hinges, we did not spend any tech resources on buffing the original cover, so while it's structurally fine, it does have a few scuffs / battle scars.

Tables with ceramic cartridges and non-adjustable tone arms, are generally not recommended for critical listening situations, recordings and / or if your record collection is in above average condition and you want to keep it that way.

ü  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance.
 
ü  Entire automatic mechanism COMPLETELY disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, (never an easy task on 'auto' turntables) including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates.

ü  All internal rubber parts reconditioned including, of course, the 'intermediate' idler wheel.

ü  Drive motor disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

ü  'Cushion ring', 'thrust washer / thrust bearing' disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

ü  'Trip pawl' cleaned for 'smooth end of album cycle.
 
ü  Platter bearing disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.
 
ü  Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.
 
ü  Tone arm Lead-In and Lead-Out.
 
ü  Tone arm bearing perfectly smooth in operation.

ü Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector.

ü He also replaced the anemic, factory RCA cables, with some much higher grade, fully shielded interlink cables, w/ 24kt gold RCA connectors.

ü Table cosmetics detailed.

ü Dust cover 'multi-stage' buffed for improved appearance with no cracks, splits or serious 'battle scars' (actually looks very nice for 45 years old).
 
ü Original Platter bubble / warp free.

ü Due to the head shell 'lift tab' missing previously, we installed an aftermarket 'lift / grove brush' (see photos above)

ü New Audio-Technica, Diamond Stylus, 'magnetic' cartridge installed. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g.

Following, and only due to the above restoration / refurbishment, the table starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
Unit was test played thru 4 cycles and tested with 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! (normally you should typically only get about 3 on a stack with no issues, and you won't always get '6' to work, but...)
(also, as you stack on more records, especially once you get to 5 and certainly 6, depending on the overall 'thickness' of the albums in the stack, 'tone arm 'cuing'' will cease to have enough clearance to function correctly on ANY stacker / changer. Just FYI). Overall the table works beautifully and all functions now work GREAT!

ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.

ü  Speed checked and verified for accuracy with technician's factory test strobe disc against built-in strobe.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

Restoration entailed approx 7+ hrs w/ followed with about MANY hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).


As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver (including 'modern / A/V / Home Theater receivers) or Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or an external Phono Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.


Great mechanical / electrical
condition BSR  / Realistic 'Professional Series', LAB 24A, fully automatic changer phonograph. Plays 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM records. Selects 7", 10" or 12" record size. Cosmetically, the table looks great. The dustcover did have a light buff, but to keep the price affordable, we did not spend as much time on it as we might a table that's in the 'grand $' price range. It has numerous scuffs / striations remaining, but overall looks acceptable, and not distracting. We photographed the 'worst' of it (see above). No cracks, chips or splits to it.
 
BSR / Realistic LAB 24A Features include:

   

- 3-Speed Turntable, 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM
- Magnetic Cartridge equipped
- Stacker / Changer capable on 16, 33's & 78's. Sorry, but we do not have a '45' stacker spindle for this one.
- Fully-Automatic operation
- Record Repeat Function
- Record Size selector- allows 'Auto' or 'Stacking' of any size record at any speed!
- Adjustable Tracking force
- Adjustable Anti-Skating
- Full chassis suspension for damping vibrations
- Heavy version, BSR platter for more stable speed, vibration damping and better 'feel'

    
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this BSR / Realistic PRO LAB 24A turntable as stated above and 'certified' it's ready to go!

Most of our turntables are 'component turntables', meaning that you connect them to YOUR EXISTING stereo systems' 'Phono Input' or (another input, utilizing an external 'Phono Pre-Amp').

What...you DON'T have an existing component stereo system? Not to fear. All you need is a pair of powered speakers ('think' the small speakers that came with your computer), and an inexpensive Phono Pre-amp.
You probably already have a pair of 'computer speakers' you can use (or grab a pair on your next trip to a local thrift store), and we have inexpensive phono pre-amps for less than $40, including all the cables you need, that will work.

We've tested this set-up and it works great!  Give us a call for further info, or to order a turntable and the balance of what you would need.


 

 

 


Note: The "Changer / Stacker" functions work best when used with pre 1980's albums due to the 
larger center hole diameter of older records. They also can sometimes work with up to 4 or 5 albums, 
but function best with 3 or less stacked at a time.
Also, for optimum performance, special a special stylus is required for 78 RPM records. While you will get sound from a 33 / 45 RPM stylus, it is best not to use the same stylus for both 78's and then for 33 1/3's / 45's.

Concerned about how your turntable will be packed for safe transit.
You should be!!!
The vast majority of turntables shipped from individual sellers, especially the one's from on-line auctions, are damaged in transit due to inadequate / inappropriate packing.
It is VERY difficult to do successfully and most folks do not have the experience or materials to do it anything close to adequately.

This is pretty much the 'Holy Grail' for vintage turntables, and only the second we have had thru the shop in 19 years. This one is also a much better example than the first one we had back in '04. This one has the much coveted SME 3009 MK II tone arm (at the time advertised as; "THE BEST PICK-UP ARM IN THE WORLD"! and was the tone arm that was also typically spec'd for Connoisseur '2-spd' and Thorens TD-124 tables), and an optional, factory made wooden base. It also comes with an original ADC, Model ONE cartridge. It also has the typically optional, 'strobe marked' platter. It's pretty much got 'ALL THE NUTS'! FINALLY, our current senior technician was up to the task, and refurbished this one beautifully and CORRECTLY! (he actually owns the same version Garrard 301, with the exact same tone-arm. He loves restoring / working on these old British Machines!)
ü Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves disassembly (not an easy task on this table), cleaning inside and out, COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below. Total technician time to restore 29 HOURS!

ü Table was completely disassembled down to the plinth  -

ü Internal mechanisms removed, disassembled, cleaned, inspected, refurbished as necessary, re-lubed as necessary and ultimately re-assembled 

ü Platter spindle bearing disassembled, cleaned, inspected and re-lubed.

ü Same was also done with the sintered, bronze bearing, which was still in fine shape.  -

ü Eddy brake actuator arm had all three iso springs replaced

ü Arm lift inspected / tested

ü Tone-Arm 'Bed Plate' has NEW, custom manufactured isolation / mounting rubber installed

ü SME 3009 MK II tone arm 'knife edge' bearing disassembled, inspected and cleaned
 
-



ü Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening (does have a few of the typical, short, radial cracks from the spindle hole).

ü Platter drive motor disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled  -

ü Idler tire was 'crack free' and only required our normal 're-surfacing' -

ü While the platter speed was 100% 'spot on', it was at the end of the speed control's travel. We corrected this by adding to the original magnetics so that it's now 100% when the control is positioned in the 'CENTER' of it's range.

ü Platter speed checked and verified for 100% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following above work.

ü Platter tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out'.

ü We installed 24kt gold plated RCA jacks on the rear panel, and are including a pair of much better quality RCA interlinks (as opposed to the original and 'fixed' anemic cables)

ü We installed 24kt Gold Cartridge / head-shell leads instead of the 'as found' 'soldered-on' wires that were connecting the cartridge to facilitate cartridge changes / up-grades in the future.

ü AC line / Power cord was replaced

ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.

ü Aftermarket, Audio-Vox, GB-3 'Walnut' (but looks more 'Teak') wood veneer case lemon oiled and looks great

ü We also reinstalled and optimized the tone arm for the originally purchased / installed ADC, Model One, magnetic cartridge.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.

ü Cartridge / head shell ‘overhang’ adjusted using shop calibration scale.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

ü Unit test cycled through MANY LP’s flawlessly

This was a 'one owner / consumer / audiophile' owned unit and was not used commercially. The only issues that we did not correct for was the single owner inscribed his id info on the plinth top (left, rear corner mounting 'ear') and underneath and laterally on the tone-arm (see photos above).

If you're looking at this then there's not much we can tell you that you likely don't already know. It is the "Oil Bearing" version, with the originally, optional / upgrade, strobe marked (60Hz), 5 lb aluminum platter. And again, it just had the above itemized restoration and is ready to go. In BEAUTIFUL condition all around. Original White Enamel finish on chassis in great shape. The VERY SOUGHT AFTER SME 3009 Mark II tone arm is in equally great performing shape. The tone arm includes 'one' of the "Rider Weights". For excessively heavy cartridges, you may need to source an additional "Rider Weight" (not sure why anyone would want to run and 'excessively heavy' cartridge). Table comes up to speed in about 3-4 revolutions (very heavy 5 lb cast aluminum platter) and stays on. Motor runs perfectly and is "Dead" silent for noise. This table is likely from 1961-63, based on it's serial, and production quantities over the years this model spanned, and the edition of the manual. Based on the condition of the idler and the bronze bearing, it has seen little use in it's life. Owner took immaculate care of it and the entire system. Comes with all of it's original paperwork, including the 'brown, hard cover Garrard 301 Transcription Turntable Owners / Users manual, original Motor inspection report,  the SME 3009 mk II owners manual and alignment protractor, and the owners manual for the ADC Model One Cartridge and more!
Measures overall 17.5" wide x 15." front to back. Table has our standard 90 day limited warranty.

ü Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out, cleaning out ‘gelled’ lubes (a ‘MUST DO’ on all pre-owned / vintage turntables) and re-lubricating mechanism, including entire 'carriage mechanism'. Arm mechanism belt replaced with new #045. Speed tested to >99% accuracy. Dust cover had 2-Stage buffing. Hinge system intact and holds lid in upright position.
These are great tables to use. Technics Fully Automatic - Linear tracking, SL-J2, stereo turntable. These are great turntables for overall quality and convenience and a "Jacket size" footprint, meaning it's barely larger than an LP jacket! Essentially "Close and Play". Technics' Linear tables by nature are great if you have cats or children as they must be closed to operate and when the cover is lifted the fragile parts (ie the tone arm and cartridge goes up with the lid. Very dust free, due to lid / cover design and almost impossible to damage your records with! 

 

Technics SL-J2 Features include:

 
 
- Linear Tracking accuracy / operation
 - Fully Automatic operation
 - Super quiet, Direct Drive
 - Programmable cut selection
 - Repeat play function
 - Front panel electronic cuing
 - Both 33 and 45 RPM speeds
 - Auto record sensing to prevent damage to stylus from starting without a record in place
 - Built-in 45 RPM adaptor!

Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this Technics SL-J2 turntable as stated above and 'certified' it's ready to go! Table looks great with fresh "buff" to dust cover. Very clean! This is very similar to one of the tables I use personally. Utilizes "P" mount cartridge. Comes with Audio-Technica / Realistic RX-1500 cartridge / stylus. If you prefer an up-grade you may also select from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost. Everything works great! 
Includes an 'e' copy / pdf download of the Technics SL-J2 owners / users / instruction manual. Measures 12 1/2" wide x 12 1/2" deep x 3.5" tall (closed) and weighs 9 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.

SHIPPED TO ALASKA


ü  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance.
 
ü Entire automatic mechanism COMPLETELY disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, (never an easy task on 'auto' turntables) including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates.

ü 'Speed Change' mechanism disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed

ü All internal rubber parts reconditioned including, of course, the idler wheel.

ü Drive motor completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

ü Steuerpimpel replaced (this is a 'MUST DO')

ü Steuerpimpel glider pad in fine shape, and fully operational
 
ü Platter bearing disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.
 
ü Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.
 
ü Tone arm Lead-In and Lead-Out.
 
ü Tone arm bearing perfectly smooth in operation.

ü Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector.

ü Original Dual Changer / Stacker Spindle inspected, re-lubed with 'dry lube' and EXTENSIVELY tested on multiple tables (see below)

ü Burnished RCA output connectors under chassis

ü He also replaced the anemic, factory RCA cables, with some much higher grade, fully shielded interlink cables, w/ 24kt gold RCA connectors.

ü Table cosmetics detailed.

ü Dust cover 'multi-stage' buffed for improved appearance with no cracks, splits or serious 'battle scars' (actually looks very nice for 45 years old).
 
ü Original platter mat warp & bubble free.

ü Re-glue corner joints in wood base, and Lemon Oil Teak wood veneer

ü Proprietary Dual 'cartridge sled' replaced, and had both mating contact sets burnished  (primarily to address 60Hz hum)

ü New Shure M97-E, Elliptically cut, Diamond Stylus, installed on the Shure 'magnetic' cartridge. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g.


ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum (once cartridge 'sled' was replaced and had contacts burnished!).

ü Speed checked and verified for accuracy with technician's factory test strobe disc.

ü He also did an 'orbital buff' to the dustcover and it looks FANTASTIC!!! No cracks, chips or splits to it.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

Restoration entailed approx 19+ hrs w/ followed with about MANY hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).


As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver (including 'modern / A/V / Home Theater receivers) or Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or an external Phono Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.


 Plays 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM records. Selects 7", 10" or 12" record size. As stated above, this table has had EXTENSIVE refurb / restore work. Cosmetically, the table looks great.
 
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this table (total tech time ~19+ hours).  
Following, and ONLY DUE TO the above restoration / refurbishment, the table starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
 (While Dual purports stacks of 5 LPs as 'typical', normally you should typically only get about 3-4 on a stack with no issues, and you won't always get '6' to work, but... this table, #5223
was test played thru 25+ cycles and tested thru multiple stacks, with 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! Occasionally you'll have a record 'hang up' or 'double drop', but that's almost always due to errantly drilled, elliptical or center holes that are 'too tight' in one of the records.
 Overall the table works beautifully and all functions now work GREAT!
We also re-installed a Shure cartridge with a brand new 'M75-E TYPE 2' stylus and optimized the table for it.  (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.) You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits. Again, this table looks near new and works great!!
 

Famous, sought after, and one of their more 'durably designed' DUAL 1219, fully automatic changer phonograph. This is one of only two "Dual 1219s" that we've had in over 20 years that we've restored (due to finally having a technician that's up to the task). Very nice Dual 1219 Stacker / Changer / Single play, Fully-Automatic turntable. One of the most sought after Dual's due to it's 'simple and durable' design. Very difficult to 'break' one of thes.
These are very well built turntables featuring an adjustable speed belt drive platter
, but here's the VERY IMPORTANT POINT about the 1219.  It is one of the few Dual models, offering 'adjustable platter speed' that does NOT utilize a 'toothed belt'. It uses a 'tapered' motor drive pulley. The original 'Toothed' belts, utilized by Dual on MANY of their turntables are now 'UNOBTAINIUM' now, and any of the original / NOS ones still floating around are likely 'dry rotted' and useless. We've tried 'O-rings' (both single and double) with limited success. NOT to worry on this model as it doesn't use that system at all (and that is VERY important).

Dual 1219 Features:
 
- Fully automatic operation
- Single play or Stacker / Changer operation (both 'single and LP 'stacker' spindles included with this one)
- Oil Damped tone arm cueing ('Cueing function defeated when used with 'stacker spindle' for safety)
- Record size selector for 7", 10" or 12" discs to adjust starting position and as a safety to insure that the stylus is not lowered onto the platter with out a record
- Adjustable Platter Speed control (does require 'monitoring' chart)
- 33 1/3, 45 & 78 RPM speeds
- Low mass, straight, metal tube tone arm
- Standard 1/2" mount cartridge head shell
- Tracking force and Anti-Skating adjustable ('course' tracking by 'weight' and 'fine' tracking by 'spring')

Cartridge: Accepts all 1/2" mount with a weight of 1-12 grams (incl. mounting)


Again, as previously stated, the table has just been completely gone through by our senior turntable technician and is "Ready to Go"! Following refurbishment / and final inspection / sign off, the table has gone thru a minimum of 25 play cycles, including a minimum of 6 plays of 6x record stacks. You will not be disappointed in this table for all around use. Comes with "Stacker / Changer" tall spindle and 'short / single play' spindle and a pair of 'up-graded' RCA interlinks
. Measures 18" wide x 16" deep x 9" tall and weighs a heavy 16 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.
