The Beogram 1200 is not the most advanced record player – but it may be the most stylish. Jacob Jensen designed it in 1969. It is part of the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
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.
