      Hello. I have an Elac Miracord 50H. I know that you don’t work on these but i was wondering if you know of someone who works on/ specializes in restoring these turntables? Thought I would take a flyer to see if you have ever come across someone who knows their way around these.

      Thanks,

      Chris

        Chris, The only person to come to mind is AK member StereoFisher. Eric has been posting about Miracords for all the years I have been here..Contact him and feel him out. Who knows?I am smart enough to not make a new customer into my guinea pig.

        You want another Grey? Better yet, look for an Amazon that someone is giving away.

        Unfortunately, there are things that will haunt each one of us until we ourselves close our eyes forever. My father had horrible nightmares about his mother, who he had loved dearly. I almost forgot about this.

        Just sheer luck that I looked at the posts in this section. People do not realize that the AK forum does not notify us when a post is placed here. Now that I got that off my chest, I will ask you to please give me a call some evening at 718 434-3354. Not this particular Fri, Sat, Sun, though.The 1009 is a good-sounding unit You will enjoy using it.

      Hey Seth Mike Gibson sent me your way. I just recently picked up a Dual 1015 with no spindles. Mike advised me that you are the man when it comes to Duals. So I was wondering if you had any spindles for the 1015. I need the changer and the manual spindles. Thanx for your time.

      How much does it cost for services? I have a 1019 with a stuck anti skate, a needle/cartridge that might need replacing, and a headmount issue.

      Hello, I have a Dual 1219 that has sat in storage since the late 1960s. Are you still servicing Duals?

      Hi Seth. I've been contemplating getting a bigger plinth for my 1019. Do you have any? Can you suggest where I might get one? I would like to have the dust cover as well.
      Thanks for your time

      Hi, Seth, a friend on here suggested I contact you to because he knows you know Dual turntables. I am trying to locate a reconditioned or unused motor for a Dual 1010 turntable. Would you have one that you could sell me? Please, please let me know! I only recently got this turntable and I am anxious to use it. Thank you so much, Mark

      Hello there NoTransistors,

      I wanted to ask if you are taking Duals for service right now. I've just bought a 1219, 'new in box' but (or therefore) not working. This is my first foray into turntables and it seems I've stumbled on a table that's just too good to be my guinea pig. I've decided to see if I can have this brought back to life by someone who really knows what they're doing rather than risk doing damage to a great turntable.

      If you're taking tables for service, I'd be shipping (in original box) from 2011 in Washington DC. The table also has no base, so if you have one to sell I'd be interested in that as well. Any details you could give me on pricing and timetable would be much appreciated.
      Thanks for your time!

      Joe

      Never mind, Seth! I put the platter back on the spindle, and now the idler makes contact again & it seems to be working fine. Whew! What would cause it to fail to turn the platter initially? The only thing I did with the platter off was move the speed selector through the various speeds a couple of times...guess the lube was a tad seized till I did that, eh?

      Hi Seth,

      The 1219 you went over for me a couple of years back has developed a problem...idler contacts motor pulley on 45 and 78 but not 33. There seems to be just a bit too much play in the part that holds the idler in contact with the pulley at the 33 setting. Is it the idler spring or just a loose nut, do you think? Is it something I could remedy myself with instructions from you? Or do I need to "bring it in"?

      Many thanks,

      Hi Seth,
      I've seen numerous posts here on AK that you are the Dual man to see. I have just acquired a Dual 1219 in what seems to be decent shape. Nothing seems "Stuck" at least.

      I am interested in getting this one serviced / rebuilt, and was wondering if you would be able to do that.

      Thanks for your time
