I've come across a Dual CK21 that has a 1229 in it. Would this be the same model, or was the 1229 used in different plinths?

The Dual 1229 was produced from June 1972 to May 1975 in St. Georgen in the Schwarzwald-Germany.

The selling price as CS 40 including console CK 21 and hinged sliding hood CH 21, in the colors nut brown, grinding white and black, was about 754 DM

It was also marketed under various brands, such as Wega, Telefunken or Grundig, which each had their own consoles! Very popular are the version of Wega (Wega 3420)!
