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 6+ hrs.

  Entire table disassembled (see above 'bench photos')

Disassembly of 'Arm Lift / Cue Mechanism', cleaned and re-lubed

Auto-Stop mechanism adjusted and tested

Head-shell carriage contacts burnished (both sides)

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

Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening. Lays flat w/ no 'bubbles'.

Table got one of our last 'official' Dual pitch control belts!!

Speed control / belt adjusted for 'center point'

Speed checked and verified for accuracy with both internal strobe and the shop calibrated strobe disc.

  Platter tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out' (we had one with 'run-out', that required a new platter).

We also installed and a new, Ortofon OM-14, elliptically cut Diamond stylus on the Ortofon OM-10 magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm 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.


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

Unit test played through 20+ LPs 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. Again, this table looks and works great!!

SHIPPING TO MICHAEL IN WISCONSIN

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance.
 
 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.

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

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

 Drive motor completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

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

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

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

 Original platter mat warp & bubble free.

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

 Excel, ES-70S 'magnetic' cartridge. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g.

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

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

 He also did an 'orbital buff' to the dustcover and it looks GREAT! Has crack at rear corner that HAS been 'plastic welded' solidly back (looks bad, but solid now).

 Table cosmetics detailed.

 Real, Teak Wood veneer base structurally solid. Veneer just had a fresh coat of Lemon Oil.

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

Restoration entailed approx 6+ 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 6 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, #8160 was test played thru 30+ 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 the 'Excell', ES-70S cartridge 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!!
 
First DUAL 1214, fully automatic changer phonograph. This is the first "Dual 1214" 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 1214 Stacker / Changer / Single play, Fully-Automatic turntable. Very difficult to 'break' one of these.
These are very well built turntables featuring an adjustable speed belt drive platter, but here's the VERY IMPORTANT POINT about the 1214.  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).

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 30 play cycles, including a minimum of 6 plays of 6x record stacks. Again, the only cosmetic issue is the repaired crack in the dust cover (see photos above). You will not be disappointed in this table for all around use. Includes 'e-copy' / pdf download of the Dual 1214 Owners / Users manual, and the Service manual if the purchaser desires. Comes with "Stacker / Changer" tall spindle and 'Short / Single Play' spindle. Measures 18" wide x 16" deep x 9" tall and weighs a heavy 16 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.

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).


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.

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance. Total tech time invested ~ 10 hours! 
 
  Entire internal 'Auto' mechanisms COMPLETELY disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed (never an easy task on 'auto' turntables).
 
  Platter spindle disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.
 
  Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.
 
  Tone arm Lead-In and Lead-Out.
 
  Tone arm bearing perfectly smooth in operation.
 
  New 'Steuerpimpel' installed into return mechanism, for years of trouble-free service.

  Internal 'speed control' pots cleaned and adjusted for 'center' position on 'user / external' controls
 
  Speed checked and verified for accuracy with technician's factory test strobe disc against built-in strobe.
 
  Original rubber mat, still supple and flexible with no hardening.
 
  Original dust cover just had a fresh, 3-stage buff and looks decent, but has a few battle scars, including a couple of previously welded cracks at the rear (see photos above)
 
  Original dustcover hinges adjusted and now hold it upright as well
 
  Grado ZT+, Eliptically cut diamond stylus, Magnetic Cartridge re-installed

  RCA Output cables replaced with 'fully braided', audiophile quality cables, with 24k Gold Plated Connectors (see photos above)

  'World AC Power' checked / adjusted for 'North American' AC power (can be changed for other countries if desired internally)
 
 We re-installed the
Grado ZT+, Eliptically cut diamond stylus, Magnetic Cartridge and optimized the tone arm 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.

Cartridge / head shell overhang adjusted using shop calibration scale.

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

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

Unit test cycled through 12+ LPs flawlessly
 
 Following the above technical restore work,
this table works and sounds great! With the exception of some dust cover issues, (see above photos) it looks great as well. One HUGE feature about this table over other Dual's is that it uses 'electronic' motor speed controls, and NOT the obsolete pitch control belt that Dual used on many vintage tables.


Beautiful condition Dual CS-621 Fully-automatic turntable. Following the above mentioned,
7 hours of tech time, it's a very well running, 'direct-drive' turntable...
 
Will include an e copy / pdf download of the Dual CS-621 Owners / users manual, Service manual and brochure if desired.  Measures 17" wide x 13.5" deep x 6.5" tall and weighs 10 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.
