Dual 1009 Power Cord - Make, Buy, or Give up?

Post by ryguydrummerboy » 29 Apr 2019 21:18

Hi All,

I bought a record cabinet set a while back that came with a Dual 1009 turntable that I use to play my 78s. The cabinet isn't worth keeping but the turntable is exactly what I want so I've been getting it fixed up. I'd like to convert it to a stand-alone outside of the cabinet but it needs a power cord. Trouble is, I've seen various different things about pin set ups and what not that I need some guidance. Here's what I have:

Any guidance at all on how I can either make, or preferably - buy this power cord would be helpful. I would just try to rip out the cable from the cabinet but it's under tons of layers of pieces and I'm not even sure it's just a regular 2-prong on the other end or if its directly connected to the cabinet amp.

Take the black box cover off. You should be able to unsolder the connector and solder on a 2 prong plug.
In the picture, the black cable at the right is for the plug

Turntables in consoles often had a 4-wire connector. Two of those were for power, and the other two were to turn on the amp when you started a record. You only need the 2 that supply power.
Manuals, including service, are here: https://www.vinylengine.com/library/dual/1009.shtml

Alec

Thanks a ton Alec - I think I've seen you a ton from the other posts on Dual turntables so your help is super appreciated.

Just bought a new generic two prong power cord for a 1218 I restored. The swap is easy. I ordered it from Parts Express. Less than five dollars if I remember correctly.

Alec,

Is value village a Canadian company? I've never heard of it in Michigan.

Regards,
Bob

It might be called Savers in some US areas. It is a US company.

Any power cord from an old lamp or defunct appliance should work. It's just wire and a plug.
You do want to remove the old harness.

Our friends at https://www.thevoiceofmusic.com/ sells complete plug in power cords for those. They offer two kinds. One with round pins and one with flat pins. You want the flat pins. Good prices, too.

Hi Rick that's a great resource. It says no phonograph power on the link but I'm not seeing any reason it couldn't work. Any thoughts on that? This might just be what I go for!

These, although from a Garrad/BSR turntable will work as well. Just plug it in and be done: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Garrard-BSR-Tu ... 3051!US!-1
