We just had our 1974 Pioneer QX-949 receiver refurbished. It cost $212.00, but OMG the sound is incredible. If you have vintage sound equipment, you know of which I speak. They cleaned all the connections, replaced bulbs and gave it a thorough inspection.

We recently did some spring cleaning and dug out our old Dual turntable and decided to send them both in for a good cleaning and any necessary repairs. We have a few weeks before we get the turntable back.

Cannot beat the old stuff... Used to have an old B&O receiver , that was incredible.

Now I'm down to the mp3's or lossless sound... No records any more.. I hated those hisses and pops!!! grin

I'm still using my 1982 Dual Cs-505, modded with a 505-1 mat and NAD 9200 cartridge. It needs a new starter circuit, you can buy a kit, it's about 3 capacitors and a resistor, and solder it in place of the old parts, without that, it's a 50-50 split whether it starts backwards or forwards when you power it up (AC synchronous motor) but until I get round to it, I use the cheap method, spin the platter the right way by hand before switching on! wink

Also still use my 1986 (or was it 85?) Philips CD-104. Had to repair the servo board a while back (Board, yes! nowadays this approx. 6 x 4 circuit board would be a single chip!) but she still sings like a bird, and plays discs other machines will struggle with if scratched. I could probably get about 250 on Ebay for it (my money back, in effect) but she's going nowhere. cool

Very nice! I was referred by my receiver repair guy to this Dual repair site if I needed any more work done on my Dual turntable in the future http://www.fixmydual.com/

I always thought my Dual 1229Q was a direct drive unit, but turns out its an idler wheel unit. My repair guy says he can't find a replacement idler wheel, and if the original one goes out on me to contact the guy at FIXMYDUAL.
