This headshell replaces the following headshell models:
TK14, TK181, TK120, TK123, TK201.
These are applicable to the following Dual turntable models:
601, 701, 704, 721, 1209 (without using the multiplay height adjustment function), 1210, 1211, 1214, 1215, 1218, 1219, 1220, 1222, 1224, 1226, 1228, 1229.
You can NOT use this headshell for the following models:
491, 504, 505, 506, 521, 1234, 1235, 1237A, 1239, 1242, 1246.
This replacement Dual headshell has a tighter fit in the headshell than the original types, effectively decreasing the possibilities of resonance.
The headshell has gold-plated spring contacts, which have better conductance than the silver-plated original conductance as well as a lower risk of oxidation.
The headshell already contains headshell wires (also gold-plated).
The following video shows you how to replace your own headshell and correctly adjust your turntables’ cartrdige.

Good fit and quality

Fits perfectly, connects easily, and improves the sound quality as apposed to the original part. However, the plastic material is quite soft. When the metal part of the headshell that rotates into the sled for connection is used a lot, the plastic edge wears off, thus potentially destabilizing the connection.
