    Fran, I'm using matching speakers - 1969 Dual CL12 full range speakers.

    They do not produce breathtaking, but authentic sound. :)

    Please shoot a pic with the speakers when you have your "new" system set up.

    I really love my 2 DUAL TTs - a 1229 & 1218. I've been using a 1229 for almost 40 years.

    Which TT was used in your HS35? I don't recognize it. It looks like the tonearm pivots are different than either of mine.

    Chi-Fi J. Linsey-Hood class 'A' amp. Exceptional SQ budget bargain alternative to tube amps of equivalent power.

    Wow! Very nice looking Dual, Chris! :thumbsup: Beautiful condition, looks like it wasn't used much! Never seen a Dual turntable & amp combo before!

    What cartridge is on it? Shure?

    Just got this TPA3250 chip amp in the mail yesterday... the FX-AUDIO FX502S PRO

    Very nice sound quality for such a small amount of money.

    You done good Chris. Real good! I've had a 1229 since my junior year of college. It's in mint condition and still works, but not in service for a few years. Picked up a JVC, QL-7 a few years back that I'm using presently. Enjoy your latest addition.
