About the Dual CS 429

Solidly built turntable with convenient features

The CS 429 offers Dual's trademark precision design and solid build quality. This German-engineered turntable features a solid MDF plinth, heavy die-cast aluminum platter, and stabilizing feet that reduce unwanted resonance — so you hear only what's on the record. It plays 33-1/3, 45, and 78 rpm records, and a switchable built-in phono preamp lets you connect to a standard RCA input on your receiver, amp, or powered speakers.

Solidly built turntable with convenient features

The CS 429 offers Dual's trademark precision design and solid build quality. This German-engineered turntable features a solid MDF plinth, heavy die-cast aluminum platter, and stabilizing feet that reduce unwanted resonance — so you hear only what's on the record. It plays 33-1/3, 45, and 78 rpm records, and a switchable built-in phono preamp lets you connect to a standard RCA input on your receiver, amp, or powered speakers.

The tonearm features a factory-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge that's a real gem — the audiophile-quality 2M line is known for balanced performance and sonic accuracy. Fully automatic operation means that the motor stops, and the tonearm automatically lifts and returns to rest at the end of a record. Many audiophiles prefer not to use this feature, so here's the good news: there's a switch on the back of the 'table that lets you revert to fully manual operation if that's your bag.

About Dual turntables

Dual is a legendary name in consumer electronics. The company started in Germany in 1907, and they introduced their signature "dual-motor" for powering gramophones in 1927. The dual-motor was so popular, it just made sense to call the company Dual from then on. They've been through some changes in the century-plus since the company was founded, but they're still headquartered in Germany, and they've continued to build on their reputation as a first-rate turntable manufacturer.
