Out of the DUAL turntables i have used this is one of my favorites. With a good cartridge you can get some beautiful sound from the 1218. It also looks classy which helps. Smooth running and fantastic sound. Being an i delver drive there will be a bit of rumble, but surprisingly low on this model. Nice feature of 78rpm and anti skate.
