Dual 704 in excellent condition. This is a semi-automatic (turns off and lifts arm at end of record), direct drive turntable.
All functions work fine: powers on upon moving tonearm as it should, cueing up and down is smooth and dampened, auto turn off and arm lift at end of record work as well. Even the tonearm Resonator is fine; many are broken and just hanging.
Upgraded RCA and ground cables are installed and I'm including the original cables too.
Has original Owner's Manual. I also have electronic copies of an expanded manual and service manual available.
Cosmetically, it is in Very Good condition. The dust cover is the only area that has significant blemishes: a piece on the side broke and there was a crack in the rear. Both were professionally repaired (100% functional, but you can see them). The crack in the rear is hard to see. You may be able to polish it out to a better condition. (It looks worse in the picture)
This is a great sounding, reliable turntable!
The included cartridge is the Grado G1+
It was near top of the line (equivalent to today's Prestige Gold with a Shibata stylus. I do not know how many hours are on the cartridge, but it looks (under weak magnification) fine and sounds great. Check out the info on it:
"The Grado G1+ Super Stereo Phono Pickup was the second top model at that special golden time when cartridges, LPs and turntables reigned supreme. It has the highly regarded Special Grado Stylus. This along with the Super Stereo design reproduces music with grace and excellence portraying a wide sound field that has a superior sense of timbre, detail and depth."
