Dual CS 5000 setup

Post by Haier77 » 10 Oct 2018 20:43

Hello

I'm having trouble setting up my Duals CS 5000.

It is a bit difficult adjust the tonearm, because
the platter starts spinning when you want to measure
the needle pressure.

Anybody any experiences with setting up this model?

Unplug the table from the wall socket. With no power it will not spin up.

With this model, the tonearm won't come down until the platter spins at the correct speed. Unplugging it does not work: the tonearm will stay up.

You need to 'fool' the machine by removing the belt, then put the platter + mat back on and power it up. Now move the tonearm over the platter, after a few seconds it will come down. IME it works best/fastest when speed is set to 78.

It appears that some who do not know the turntable have chosen to try and make the OP look stupid. This should be a good lesson, if you don't know a certain turntable maybe it is wiser to stay out of the conversation. Thanks for being helpful Japi Roelofs
