Score of the day...Looks like it was made yesterday,nearly flawless+original box for 50.00
Nice piece. Looks like a combo of Sansui, Pioneer & Yamaha.
Congratulations! Magnificent piece with great review....
Yup,Yamaha & Concept....knew zero about this amp,but the guys over at AK seemed to think it was a good deal back in 2009,so i think in 2017 it qualifies as a genuine bargain.
thanks...worked into my desktop set-up...giving it a chance to see what it can do.Drives my sextetts great.Has a warmer SS than my Onkyo,but not as warm as my Sansuis.
I just purchased this Dual 1246 and brought it home. I will either use it my self or give it to a family member or a friend. All that I ask them is that they actually use it and not let it just sit there, even though it has merit as "art". I like it better than quite a few of the modern so fugly they oughtta be called "burntables", players. If I keep it, I would have 6 (!) turntables. Not that there is any thing wrong with that... It is fully automatic and features a "repeat" function to continue to play the same side over and over. Kinda sorta cool. I like kinda sorta cool.
Vintage 'tables are like vintage receivers and integrated amps. Totally bitchin'.
I'll take it for sure it will be used...
Great find, I have the same reciever and it has a very nice sound.
Had a good synergy with KEF ref. 103/4.
I think there is a market for quality auto and semi-auto TT's--not to mention the repeat play and other advanced features that started to show up at the end of the 70's and later.
After 2 days on 220v, I have smoked two Sony STR-6120's that are switched to 240v settings. Both had the same failure - the switch that controls the switched outlet on the back has melted. Looks like the switch is rated for 500v, but it seems like they have both independently decided that 220 is too much. Otherwise, they had been running perfectly for about an hour each before the blue smoke. I'll buy the stupid $2 parts and repair them in due time. For now, I have one 6120 left before I have to seriously consider just using a dang step-down transformer. Any super technicians have any idea why these 500v rated components keep failing besides the fact that they are 50 years old?
This is for the experienced folks here. To gain more volume out of my Sansui , when connecting my hd700's to the speaker taps. Is there a resistor network I can buy or build for it? My cans are 120ohms. I can turn the volume to maybe 3 or 4, and it's extremely touchy.
My amp puts out 15wpc@8ohms. Sansui Au-101. Any advice is much appreciated.
@robrob might be able to assist...
My new record player plays just great but the automatic start/stop feature does not work. I suspect a belt or some thing along those lines. We shall see. Looks like I will have to keep this for my self. For a while...Yeah...That's it. For a while!
In the mean time I hooked up my Denon DP-300F. I was using my Pro-Ject Sgt. Pepper's 'table but wanted an automatic due to leg pain (I am a wussy about that!).
Geez louise...You can not even say the alternate word for "cat" here? I changed it to "wussy".
What table is it? Auto decks usually need to have their gearing serviced after some time. Once they gummed up with old grease they'll develop all sorts of problems.
It is a Dual 1246.
