Looks great, bet it sounds excellent.  However, we (meaning, I) need a better pic without the glare/shadow.  I know, I'm picky.

The forte of Duals is usually their high quality tonearms. Let down by "QuickDraw McGraw" cartridge fittings of one sort or another - these arms are capable of excellent results if these flimsy cartridge platforms are modified into something solid (and definitely NOT quick draw anymore...).

 

Pic of the arm, glare-free, up close ?

Duals were awesome...I had a 721 that was Direct Drive, suspended , rock steady speed, double damped arm AND..I got rid of the miserable sled contacts, rewired the arm and made NORMAL cart connections...sweet sweet...Built a wood base for it too...solid like a tank...LOL..but played like a feather...

Par...I usually sell them - break even, lose money, get them good homes...LOL

 

THAT one in particular, the guy was restoring an old built in console but wanted a good turntable...he bought it and guess what ? it fit 100% slide in with the wood base. He thought he was going to have to remove it from the base, but no...It was as if I built it for him...lol...

 

I just enjoy doing it but I have slowed down ALOT...

 

I would like to restore another AR/XA...they are so easy and come out awesome...

Most cool stuff is born out of passion, but hard to sustain...thanks for sharing!

Cheers!

Sweet!

Congrats, that's a nice set-up!  Hope you enjoy playing vinyl half as much as I do.  When I first started playing records I thought the music was a muted especially at the high end.  At first I asked myself, what's the big deal?  But I kept returning to analog playback and not in a conscious effort.  Pretty soon I was listening to it almost exclusively.  So I decided to make a comparison again.  The iphone, dac combo sounded shrill in comparison to my Dual, Shure V15 set-up. Your TT, arm, and cart are really nice.  Did you get a new album too?

I bet your new TT got more turns last night than a Roulette wheel:tongue_smile: in Vegas! 

 

And speaking of albums...

:(

...I'm still waiting for my pre-order release of Janos Starker and the London Symphony Orchestra. I think I ordered it in August.

 

Janos Starker Dvorak Cello Concerto (Pre-Order)

Janos is amazing....It'll be worth the wait.  I think I'll name the TT 32 Red....;)
