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.

Wharfedale is the British heavyweight champion of value-for-money loudspeakers. Every single component, from woofer cone to cabinet, is both designed and built in-house. This creates unparalleled quality control while maintaining the lowest possible price. And with a range that extends from entry-level to extreme luxury, Wharfedale has a specific loudspeaker to suit you – anywhere along your audio journey.

A Whole Lotta Love

The combination of Dual’s CS 418 turntable and Wharfedale’s DS-2 active bookshelf speakers creates a complete HiFi system, one capable of both analogue and digital music play. Such is the quality of these two HiFi pieces, our Stairway to Heaven pack might be the last music system you ever purchase. However, it might also be your first step in a life-long analogue adventure, building and expanding on these foundations as you climb to ever greater musical heights. Dare we say, a stairway to heaven?


CS 418 – Born Analogue

Return to the heart of music with breath-taking 2M Red musicality, effortless multi-speed play, and the convenience of an inbuilt phono preamplifier. Welcome to the revolution. Welcome back to life at 33 ⅓

Worthy of Your Worship

With a classic rubber matt atop an anodised silver platter spinning over black vinyl veneer, CS 418 is a 70s-style turntable dripping in music tradition. Because the table you play should be worthy of the collection you worship.


The Start of Great Things...

Dual’s remarkable three-speed turntable beautifully compliments Wharfedale’s petite yet powerful active bookshelf loudspeakers. Combined they create a modern classic HiFi system for small bedroom or apartment-style living spaces. Start a 78 collection, begin slinging 45 singles, or hunt down your favourite 33⅓ LPs. This incredible little system allows you to indulge in the full analogue listening/collecting experience. Plus, with DS-2 inbuilt Bluetooth, you can now stream new music before committing these albums to your ever-growing vinyl record collection.

Best of Three

¾” silk dome tweeters, 3” woven polypropylene bass drivers, 30 watts of power, and a net weight of just 3kg, DS-2 is proof that the best things come in three.


Think Small, Play Loud

With two 75mm polypropylene drive cones powered by independent 15W amplifiers, Bluetooth with aptX and a 3.5mm line input, DS-2 is a compact, powerful, and complete stereo entertainment system.
