CS 418

The entry-level record player
for the manual Dual CS series

CS 418

Robust, precise, reliable, with a 5-year warranty for carefree music enjoyment

The turntable series starts with the CS 418, which integrates high-quality components from the larger models and already places the highest emphasis on precision.

With the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge and switchable MM phono preamplifier, the CS 418 not only offers outstanding value for money, but also a very balanced sound.

Ease of use is guaranteed with the characteristic features of the CS series. The stepless antiskating can be easily adjusted using a rotary knob with a clear scale. The electronic adjustment of the three speeds is conveniently carried out via a rotary switch, while the appropriate pickup can be easily changed using the headshell.
