amateur hobbyist, not a working turntable repairman. To that extent use this
guide at your own risk. I have been a hi fi addict since the late 60's. Just before
Christmas 2008 I got the bug to get my old hi fi equipment out, a 1974 Marantz
2270 and a Garrard Zero-100C I bought new, still have all the boxes and
paperwork for. After a little work on the receiver and a proper service of the
Garrard this equipment still makes some beautiful music. I also upgraded my
speakers, replacing some cheapie interim Kenwoods that replaced my Pioneer
CSR500's which sadly were destroyed. The new speakers are some early 90's
Klipsch Quartets in oak oil that look beautiful and sound terrific. While I was
waiting for the Garrard to be serviced I got interested in Dual 12-series tables.
My brother always had duals and he swore by them, his last table was a 1229Q.
