This is the paramount of German Manufacturer DUAL's effort into Analog Turntables.
This player is highly adjustable and customizable, but you are looking at an example of an excellent condition (almost indistinguishable from new) player that includes the ULM 1/2" cartridge fitting (a $150 option in 1980) and a fully functional Grado G-2+ cartridge with stylus. This was in its day the top of the line cartridge from Grado - it has been replaced by the Grado Prestige Gold. The Original Box from 1980 (included) is printed $250 from the factory. I have a few other parts for this unit and recently had the RCA (cinch) cables replaced with a shielded 4 meter run. Includes dust cover although it isn't in most of the photos.
The Unit is located in Hollywood Hills, CA 90068.
It can be shipped, but I would rather have you come over and listen to it - then buy it.
