Dual CS 5000

This is the beautifully styled and sleek Dual CS 5000 with a walnut plinth.  There was also a black plinth available but doesn't look nearly as nice as the walnut. Many feel that the CS 5000 is one of Dual's best turntables ever.  It originally came out around 1985 and was on the market for about five years with a retail price of $400-$500.  It's a 3 speed, semi-automatic, quartz belt drive turntable with computer controlled speed and electronic touch controls.

The Dual CS 5000 tonearm is suspended in a gyroscopic gimbal bearing designed to reduce friction and enhance freedom of movement. Tracking force is applied via a precision torsion spring. The chassis is suspended with four adjustable shock absorbing feet. Overall it is a very well designed turntable.

Below is the CS 5000 in black which to my eye is not nearly as appealing. However, I own a CS 5000 in black that I picked up at a garage sale for $5. I figured for that amount I'd live with the color.

The Dual CS 5000 was probably a top of the line turntable for Dual at the time it was made but Dual wasn't necessarily making great tables at that time so that's not saying much.  Still, you'll find quite a few people that really like the CS 5000 so prices are somewhat elevated for a table in good condition.  A walnut CS 5000 in excellent working condition will sell from $300-$500.

Love the walnut CS5000, I’m wondering if you have a 505-2 wood base and if you did what would it cost?
