Dual Turntable Repair

Post by Skytrooper » 14 Sep 2018 01:53

Hi everyone. I have an old Dual 1229 my neighbor gave me and I was looking for recommendations of a repair shop. I’d like it gone through so it’s go to go. Thanks to all.

There are a ton of threads on the 1229 in the Dual forum including tutorials from member Dualcan aka Klaus.

Whatever you do, do not try to manipulate the single/multi tonearm adjustment at the base of the tonearm pivot until the rubber sleeve under the chassis has been replaced. If you don't heed this advice you risk breaking the dearing ring for the tonearm and the repair is very difficult to put it mildly.

When properly serviced it is one of the best by Dual and their top of the line in its day. A top quality build.
