ION TTUSB05XL - Poor sound quality

My previous (Onkyo) turnatable worked fine for 28 years before the motor failed. I bought the new ION, but the sound is distorted along with background noise. No it is not the record(33LP).

The components on the rest of the system are all Sony. The receiver/amp is a year old. There are audio jacks for phono on the receiver/amp.

The turntable has a built-in phono preamp so you don't want to run it through phono inputs in your receiver but just regular auxiliary inputs instead

Juicer stopped working


It sounds like a warranty issue if you bought it new. I checked the internet and this seems to be a budget juicer. I had the Jack La Lane model and fortunately the base unit (motor) was replaceable, however I concluded it was such because it wasn't heavy duty and they made money off it failing after a year. These are my personal feelings that you should look at a better model and of course you will pay more for the quality.

Receiver will not turn on and is making a clicking sound TX-NR 609


This is the same problem i've had with my POS nr609. I will never buy Onkyo again.. Everyone warned me about the poor quality.. This thing worked for a year and a half, blew the amp., replaced and now another year and a half, f'd again. Save your time, buy a Denon or a Harmon Kardon. Better quality, same features..

The TT should be connected properly for the way it's configured (Line Level Out to any Line Level In OR Phono Out to Phono In) and NOT any other way.

I've just bought a used Ion Audio TTUSB05 turnatable, I ve plugged it into my amp and it sounds terrible. There is a lot of noise before the needle hits the vinyl, presumably it needs earthing, when...


It will need earthing if you are getting hum. As it is used I would replace the entire cartridge and stylus with the best you can afford. Make certain you wire it up right. A good test is with the cartridge removed and your amp on, is to touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one left one right) and nothing on the other two wires (earths). This will help you get the new one connected right.

Can I use my turn table with a receiver that doesnt have a phono input?


Yes you just need to plug the turnatable into a "Magnetic Cartridge Preamp" and that into your amp's aux socket to hear the sound at the right level. You should find one with Google search.

Just bought new pump. My old one lasted for 12 years. New one is 4 months old and recently started to make a loud whine or screeching noise when operating. It works fine but is very loud. I have trouble...


Most likely the bearings on the motor are going out. 4 months is way too soon, but it is possible you got a lemon. Unfortunately I wouldn't expect the new one to last 12 years. It's possible but unlikely. You should however get at least a few years. If the shaft seal on the motor shaft between the impeller and seal plate failed then water can drip back along shaft and get into motor bearings. This will cause motor bearings to fail. Even if this is not the case the motor bearings can fail even though it is rare to do so within first year. I would contact the place you bought the pump from, or whoever installed it. It should have at least a one year warranty. If for whatever reason this motor is not covered under warranty and you have to replace it, I would consider rebuilding it. Normally I don't care for rebuilds, but if the motor is truly only 4 months old then rebuilding it would be a good option.

I jsut bought a used Delta 28-682 18" bandsaw. I am shocked by the poor quality of the blade guides. They are gapped so far apart that they hardly touch the blade unless it is twisted at a 45 degree...


It sounds as though the friction pads that go on the guides are missing. If you cannot buy a new set, try glueing some teflon blocks of the desired thickness to the guides.
