Dual 1019 Fully Automatic Multi-Play Turntable, Circa 1967

A collection of images from a semi-restored precision turntable considered top of the line during its day. Produced from 1965 to 1969 it is a very fine piece of German engineering. The early models are not quite as nice as the later ones. An idler driven system that offers the best of direct drive and belt drive at the same time. A multiplayer capable of stacking 6 LP's and with the optional 45 stacker 12 to 14 45's. Plays at speeds of 16 2/3, 33 1/3, 45 and 78 r.p.m. with ± 6% pitch control. Also has a setting for the size of the record : 7, 10 and 12 inch. The base, dustcover and 45 multi-play spindle were all optional items; and as a result, most of the turntables out there are incomplete. Carries a wide range of values depending on condition and accessories included. Retailed for $130 in the 1960's; however, if you wanted a plinth, dustcover, 45 spindle and cartridge with needle you were looking at a price closer to $300. That was a lot of money for a turntable in the 1960's.

The camera flash makes the unit look more dusty or dirty than it really is. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled.

Valued in the range of $275 - $425
