Awesome turntables these Dual 505’s.
Super reliable & just a pleasure to use & listen to.

Excellent condition example – equipped with Ortofon Red cartridge & stylus – a very nice listen.

Made in Germany – Circa 1985

Fab condition this one. – a very good example.,

We fitted the Ortofon – it’s not exactly brand new but hasn’t had a lot of use & it’s got lots of life ahead.

Old grease removed, re-lubed. RF capacitors replaced – a must for the 505s. Belt in good shape. Lid, hinges etc etc – all excellent condition – a well looked after deck.
