Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Technics SL1300 running through Sony integrated amp with no problems. I unplug the SL1300 from phono input and plug in Marantz 6300 - no sound. Change headshells - both headshells work on the Technics, neither headshell gives audio on the Marantz.

I can help with this issue. To keep the platter spinning in manual mode, you have to cue the tonearm up and move it so it is over the record. Then flip the lever to manual. It should stay on in this position. This is a feature and not a bug.
Regarding the audio / humming problem. The Duals had what was known as a muting circuit that engages as the turntable is cycling between rest and play. The fact that you are getting no sound may be an indication that the muting circuit is still engaged. Here are a few things you can try:
1. If the unit was recently shipped, you may need to reset the mechanical function of the turntable. You can do this by locking down the tonearm to the tonearm rest, turning on the power and then flipping the lever for a full automatic cycle. The tonearm will stay fixed to the rest, but the remainder of the mechanical system underneath will be reset to proper positioning (this is detailed in the Dual manual). Of course, this assumes that everthing was OK prior to shipping.
2. Make sure your cartridge is properly mounted with a good stylus, check your tonearm wires (both in the headshell and underneath the turntable and finally, see if you can get underneath the turntable while you run an automatic cycle to see what is going on.
Lastly, if you can't get it going, Check out Bill at www.fixmydual.com He worked on my 1019 and knows them inside and out.

Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

Yes you need a pre amp
It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.
Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.
You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too
