The Dual CS518 Manual Turntable is for the true vinyl enthusiast with its twin gimbal tonearm design using pivot ball bearings for optimal precision. This superior tonearm has the ability to guide even high end pickups with the greatest degree of precision and reliability. The 2M Red pickup and a switchable MM-phono preamplifier are an integral part of this ready to run package. The Plinth is folded MDF construction with a black vinyl veneer and the feet integrate Elastomer for absorbing vibrations. Your platter is aluminum diecast, and the heavy rubber mat dampens resonance. The solid platter bearing features a hardened steel spindle in a brass bushing. The motor is a low vibration DC servo-motor with rubber mountings for vibration decoupling, and the belt is precision cut for lower wow and flutter.
