Selling a Dual direct drive turntable in excellent condition. All functions work. Fully automatic tonearm. The only flaw is that the dust cover has a small piece missing from the back corner and it could use a good polishing. This was considered by many to be the best sounding table Dual ever produced and it will hold its own against modern turntables costing several thousand dollars. Prefer pickup in central New Jersey as I do not have original packing and I don't trust the shipping services to safely deliver this table. Selling without a cartridge but I can install the cartridge of your choice. Set up and working.
2-Speed Direct-Drive Turntable (1977-1979)
The Dual 721 is a fully automatic, single play, direct drive successor to the quietest turntable ever made.
Independent test reports on the electronic direct-drive Dual 701 were extraordinary. Their results are still pertinent since the CS 721 has the same drive system.
Hirsch-Houck Labs found the wow level 'essentially at the residual level of our test record', and the Feldman Lab report in FM Guide was able to detect 'no flutter whatsoever'.
The CS 721 tonearm has a number of new developments that contribute significantly to fine tracking performance.
Most notable of these is the tonearm base which has a vernier height adjustment for setting the tonearm parallel to the record with any size cartridge. This eliminates the added mass of cartridge spacers otherwise needed to achieve precise vertical tracking angle. It also makes cartridge mounting and interchange more convenient.
