Hi Guys
Thank you so much for DUAL manuals. I have an old DUAL 1225 turntable, originally equipped with a SHURE cartridge, installed in a GRUNDIG compact stereo system, named HiFi studio 3010. In the 70s GRUNDIG featured great looking compact stereo systems which came equipped with DUAL turntables.
