Dual 1229 good, bad or ?

Recommended Posts

Got a chance of picking up a Dual 1229 t/t, a quick search shows it to be a decent performer. Anyone have first hand experience of it?

My buddy has one and loves it. I have the 1019 and its a solid table. Find a reputable tech and have them clean it and lube it and it will last a long time.

Ok I went back to my neighbours yard sale, (early bird)...:D..Got the Dual 1299, and a Toshiba SR-250 t/t for $30 the pair...both in lovely condition. He also has a Technics SL-Q300 but he wants $50 for it...not in as good shape.

I like Duals, almost picked up 1019 a few years ago, but it was not in a good shape. As well as 701 and CS505 and CS7000 Golden One. Almost got that Golden but we could not agree on price, the owner asked too much.
