New Dual CS 429: Automatic Turntable with Phono Preamp

As a fully automatic record player, Dual's new CS 429 wants to offer easy and convenient operation when listening to vinyl records.

Both the MDF plinth as well as the feet of the new Dual CS 429 contain vibration absorbers, which, like the rubber mat on the platter, are supposed to keep resonances away. The platter, powered by a belt drive, can run in 78 in addition to the usual 33 and 45 RPM, and rests on a hardened steel spindle that sits in a brass bearing bushing. The tonearm of the CS 429 moves, raises and lowers itself automatically, which aims to promise especially simple operation.

On the tonearm of the new dual turntable, sits Ortofon's 2M Red cartridge as standard. The signals from this are processed by a built-in phono preamplifier, which can also be switched off.

In Germany, the new CS 429 automatic turntable from Dual is said to be be available immediately, at a price of around €650.
