CS 618Q


Dual Manual Hi-Fi Turntable


For decades, direct-drive turntables from Dual have been renowned for their quality and reliability. The rumble free direct-drive in the CS 618Q keeps the RPM totally stable, while operating without noise or vibration.

The advanced twin gimbal precision tonearm is partnerd with an Ortofon 2M Blue pickup.

The turntable comes with an auto-stop feature that includes an automatic tonearm lift to reduce wear and tear on the needle as it moves to the end of the record.
