I just purchased a Dual CS 1245 in great condition. It sounds very good. I'd like to find the owners manual and service manual online, but can only find non-English versions on Vinyl Engine. Does anyone know where I can find these online? And why is there so little information regarding the 1245? Is it rare in the USA or something?

There are several websites that sell manuals. You could do a web search for "Dual CS 1245 manual" and see what you find. Some people sell manuals on ebay, too.

Perhaps someone reading this forum has one they can photo copy and send to you.... Good Luck. Unfortunately, I don't.

I would try printing out the English manual for the model most similar to mine from the library here and hope that it would give me at least some guidance.

Dual 1245

Thank you for the advice. I found a Service Manual on ebay for about $11. I'll continue to search for a User Manual. I'd welcome a PDF or photocopy if anyone has one.

There seems to be a lot of information on the web for other Dual models. Does anyone know why the 1245 seems to be rare? One thing I've noticed is that the 1245 is functionaly identical to the much-loved 601. I wonder if the 1245 had a short production run because it was quickly replaced by the 601?

I also just found two Yamaha MX-1 amps brand new in un-opened boxes. Can't wait to put this all together!

Thanks again!
