The German company Dual had a long history of idler-wheel record players. Many manufacturers introduced belt drive record players in the mid of the last century, but some companies still produced idler-wheel drives. Dual was the last big company building idler-wheel turntables. Dual produced the 1229 model during the years 1972 – 1974. It was mostly based on the Dual 1219.
