I have the 1019. It rocks (no pun intended).

It's a good solid performer with idler drive and a 7 pound platter to boot. If you find one at a good price, grab it. You won't be sorry.

I did end up removing the stacker spindle and replacing it with a single play spindle though. I have no desire (EVER) to stack records on a changer.

Both turntables were fabricated in vast quantities and sold to OEMs who equipped consoles with them, the cheaper ones with the 1019, the more expensive ones with the 1229. I own a Grundig console with the latter one - a good deal, but far from high end.

Best regards!

Pretty sure the 1229 is just newer than the 1019

Owned a 1229 long ago. A fine reliable performer. At this point it will need a 'disassemble clean and lube'. I used to do that at 'The Audio Clinic' in Madison Wi also long ago. It isn't very difficult and a WHOLE lot easier than some others.

DO NOT RUN IT until you KNOW it's properly lubricated.

Take LOTS of pics before you take it apart as it will help when re-assembling it. The motor needs to be 'pried' apart after removing the screws. A pair of flat blade screwdrivers and a wood block to hold them apart works well. I would recommend Nye Oil II for the motor. The original oil was Isoflex PDP 40. The original grease was Shell Alvania #2. Nye 368AX-1 is a superior (but not cheap) replacement. I don't know where to get Wacker Siliconoil for use in the cue cylinder. Renotac was the adhesive oil used in the main bearing but I have no sub for it.

surprised not many others commenting on these two classic turntables that seem to get a bad rap because of the dual name.

Yep, and the 1019 is just the newer 1009. I still have my old Dual 1009 and it still works fine.....although I haven't used it in years. I put an idler wheel on it in 1980-something.

Due to idler wheel not rumble free.
The automatic function will fail in time. Shell tends to make bad contact due to stupid construction. Very irritating.
