Dual CS 550 Turntable
Modern design paired with perfect technology. That’s the new CS 550 of the brand Dual. The chassis is lacquered with a special antistatic lacquer in a timeless anthracite colour. The solid MDF chassis has a high rigidity and a low natural resonance. Vibrations, like for example impact noise, will be eliminated before they reach the platter and the motor. The high-class tonearm is only used on the top models CS 550 and CS 600 and was developed just for those turntables. The special hardened 7mm platter axle is turning almost frictionless in the precise bearing made of brass. The platter is a heavy triple damped sandwich-platter with two damping rings. Additional it is effused with an special damping mass. This minimizes the natural resonance and improves, due to the heavyweight, the speed accuracy. To avoid any bad influences to the sound, we disclaimed on any kind of automatic function.
The height-adjustable arm has a quadruple ball bearing Cardan joint and a particularly torsioinally rigid headshell mad of carbon fibre with ½“ mounting holes. Counterweight and antiskating are adjustable.
Vibration damping solid wood chassis. Heavy aluminium sandwich platter is weighted with copper rings and a cast damping mass is also located within the interior. The brass bearing is built for long-life and has a bearing mirror made of Teflon.
The platter is driven by a precision flat belt and a DC motor with electronic speed control. The cartridge is not included.
