Dual CS-505-4 Semi-Automatic Turntable

dual

The CS 505-4 is the eternal classic in the DUAL sortiment and is now in its fourth generation. A semi-automatic turntable with floating sub-chassis, which combines time and effortless good sound with excellent ease of use and so ensures relaxing and long lasting music enjoyment.

Type: Turntable




Tone arm technology:
Cardan bearing with massless Stylus force set by high-precision torsion spring. Detachable headshell with 13mm (1/2-inch) fixing-holes. Adjustable tracking force and anti-skating. Extremely rigid headshell made of carbon fiber.

Chassis technology:
Anti-Distortion wooden chassis. Board with floating suspension. Vibration damped aluminium platter with anti-static, thick felt mat.

Drive technology:
Belt drive with polished flat belt, 16 pole synchronous motor with speed precision control. Viscosity damped arm lift. Auto Stop with tone arm lift. Supplied with magnetic OMB 10 cartridge.

Highlights:

The plinth is made of solid wood and the sub-platter is completely suspended, which ensures a very high signal-to-noise ratio and enough rigidity to effectively ward off external vibrations. The whole body sits on damping feet, and the aluminium platter uses an anti-static felt platter mat to prevent resonance. It is driven by a DC motor and flat belt.

Because this turntable has a different design to the brand’s other models, the sound quality it produces is also different. While it has all of Dual's signature dynamic range and definition, the colouration is a lot more analogue-sounding! It adds extra presence to vocals and string and wind instruments in particular. And like all suspended vinyl turntables, it delivers a beautiful sound stage that is as wide as it is deep, whilst remaining precise and authentic. It also has relatively low levels of surface noise.
