2-Speed Fully-Automatic Turntable
The Dual 1249 holds a unique position in the Dual family; it is our only full size, fully automatic model that offers both single-play and multi-play.
Tracking is flawless at pressures as low as a quarter of a gram.
In single play, the tonearm parallels the record to provide perfect vertical tracking.
In multi-play mode the mode selector lifts the entire tonearm to parallel the centre of the stack.
The dynamically balanced cast platter and flywheel are driven by an 8-pole synchronous motor via a precision ground belt.
Pitch is variable over a 6% range and can be set to exact speed by means of an illuminated strobe, read directly from the rim of the platter.
All operations are completely flexible and convenient - and foolproof.
The tonearm can be lowered to the record manually or via the viscous damped cue-control or by simply pressing the automatic switch.
You also have the option of single play, continuous repeat, or multiple play.
