Dual 505/2

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I recently bought a Dual turntable and it plays great, I have an issue with the hard shell.. the hinges not holding up the cover, they not looking faulty, the spring works but not doing the job. I thought the hard shell could be not original but it looks great and it’s like new.

Is there anybody out there can give me an advice or a contact where to get new hinges or the solution to this dilemma? Cheers

i had the same hinges on my Linn as an upgrade, they were lousy, tended to take the cover off when using the TT, i don't think they are original, had a Dual TT in the 70's, too far back to remember what hinges it had

You might actually find that it sounds better with the cover off.

Try it and let your ears be the judge.

The hinges look original. I remember with mine I had to pack the hinge with a piece of cardboard on the inside of the hinge for it to grip the dust cover.

I don't quite get your second picture though. I can't recall there being any notches in my original dust cover.

Having a look around looks like the cover is too heavy for the hinge so I guess it is not the original one, I’d like to have a cover on because my tt is in the kitchen with kids moving stuff around and wife cooking.. hope to find a replacement
