This is a GREAT RIG--I've been using this for YEARS and it has never had a problem.
It has fewer moving parts because it has NO AUTOMATIC RETURN for the tone arm!!!
That means, when the record reaches the trail-off wax--it STOPS!!!
No getting up in the middle of the night to turn it off--it's OFF when it reaches the "END"
that means--no needle running forever in the dead wax and no extra wear on the guts and
less to go wrong with the mechanism.
Not sure if other DUAL models have this set-up.
