CS-518 Manual Turntable

$1,299.99

Driven to Keep You Spinning Since 1907. Under the new ownership of Dr Josef Zellner, Dual launches an entirely new line of turntables, redeveloped & rebranded for contemporary vinyl enthusiasts.

From storing, cleaning, and procrastinating over our precious collections to Saturday morning music conversations over coffee at the local record store, owning and playing vinyl records is a labour of passion. It’s this passion that inspires us to continue refining the art of record play, so that what we build inspires an even deeper connection to the music collections we all so deeply love.


Manual turntables require you to cue, lower, and lift the tonearm at all stages of record play. They’re an audiophile preference because they reduce moving mechanical parts. Fewer moving turntable parts means less potential noise, noise that can be picked up by the cartridge. And that means cleaner, more detailed audio performance. It also means that you can upgrade to higher performance cartridges (more sensitive needles) in the future.
