Top Budget Deck

The 510 is one of the best budget decks ever build.
Same arm and motor as 1249 but simplified platter
with lesser mass. Variopulley pitch. No automatic
functions but lift-off/motor-off.

dual 510 service manual

hello, little deception for me cause I can't read any service manual for the Dual 510 turntable, in english or german, the trouble is the same, it just appears some strange signs at top or bottom of the page and much pages are totaly white. I don't have problem whith the notice but I own the paper version...
best regards from france
