"The fully automatic function of the CS 429 provides maximum ease of use. The tonearm automatically lifts, shifts across and drops with the push of a button. Simply place the vinyl record on the platter and push the start button. The CS 429 has a fully adjustable tonearm. This provides the option to change the pickup in the future and to alter the tracking force and anti-skating accordingly. The internal rubber damping construction decouples the tonearm and platter from external vibrations. This very quiet platform provides an excellent sound performance combined with precise, optical speed control." -Ā Dual
