CS 518

The perfect start to the high-end

The CS 518, ideal for vinyl enthusiasts, impresses with a precise twin gimbal tonearm and the finest pivot ball bearings. The classic dual tonearm guides even the most demanding cartridges precisely and safely for a first-class listening experience.

With the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge and switchable MM phono preamplifier, the CS 518 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.
