Dual CS 418 Manual Hi-fi Turntable

Emphasis on high component precision is a feature of the entire range of Dual products. This is the case for the entry model CS 418, which uses the same platform as the higher models in the product range.
The Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge and a switchable Moving Magnet phono preamplifier are an integral part of this ready-to-run package.

The CS 418 is excellent value for money, but it also offers a compelling, balanced sound experience. Not to mention a 5 year warranty for long term ownership.

The CS 418 gets 5 stars from What Hi-fi?

"As we listen to Carmina Burana, it’s hard to not be impressed by the deck's composure and ability to capture the scale and highly charged energy of the piece. The music’s savage dynamics are rendered with composure and a pleasing amount of impact while the stereo image retains a good sense of precision and focus."

Gabi Recommends:

If you are looking for a nice upgrade path for this turntable, why not take a look at the Ortofon 2M Blue Stylus. Although it is the same Elliptical stylus profile as the 2M Red, you will notice a big leap in audio playback with this stylus. The fact that it is a solid diamond piece (rather than a "tipped" or "glued on" version of the 2M Red) makes all the difference. 

The best part is, the Ortofon 2M Blue Stylus will fit perfectly on the existing 2M Red body that comes with the turntable. So you will only need to slip on the new stylus and away you go.

On-Board Phonostage:

Built with a Moving Magnet Switchable Phonostage already on board, this turntable is able to connect to any amplifier or powered speaker system. If you have an existing phono preamplifier that you would like to use instead of the one inside your turntable, then all you need to do is flick a switch.
