Dual turntables "Made in Germany" look back on a long company history. In the 1930s, for example, the "Gebrüder Steidinger" company began producing gramophone drives in the 1930s and developed its first own turntables, for which it even received an award at the 1937 World Exhibition in Paris. The success story continues today after turbulent years around the brand Dual and its turntables. Since 1993 Alfred Fehrenbacher GmbH took over the production of the complete range of turntables from DUAL and in 2002 also the distribution and marketing rights. The subsidiary founded especially for this purpose, Dual Phono GmbH, still produces "Made in Germany" in St. Georgen in the Black Forest.
