3-Speed Fully automatic Idler-drive turntable
Despite its versatility and precision, the Dual 1219 is quite easy to operate in either single play or multiple play mode.
It is also quite difficult to damage.
If you happen to switch to start when the tonearm is locked on the resting post, just wait till the switch returns to neutral, unlock the tonearm and start again.
If the speed is set at 45rpm when you have a 33rpm record on the platter, just change the speed accordingly, even if the tonearm is already cycling.
You can also do the same with the record size indicator.

I really like this turntable. It's far from being the best but I've had mine since 1971 and it still runs perfect, other than the usual TLC.

I have one from 1972 and still works very well! No problems and great sound
