Re: akai recording problem
You might have a bad cable to the recorder (try swapping the right and left connections and see if the problem moves to the other channel), dirty tape heads (use a cotton swab and head cleaner or isopropyl alcohol to clean them), or a circuit problem inside the recorder. Hope this gets you started!

Check your connecting terminals on both ends for that channel that the polarity is correct and firmly connected. If you find no problem with that, then swap the connections...if the problem repeats to the other side then the speaker is damaged. If the problem stays on right side then it is the unit and needs to be investigated further.
Replace center channel speaker with known good one. If no longer scratchy then the voice coil of removed unit is rubbing against the magnet pole and the speaker needs to be replaced. If the replacement speaker also sounds bad, then the amp for the center channel needs repair.
Hi, Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable. The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.
Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
Put a record on and start playing the record
Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
now lets reverse the test
unplug both RCA from amp.
Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
Did it ever work right? When did the problem start?
There are many DSP modes with this unit. Echoing voices is probably one of them. This is a user setting. Look at the front panel for information regarding that. I imagine the Straight/Effect button might change it.
Have you read the manual and followed the specific menus for setting up the DSP modes?
Screeching, Scratchy Sound: I don't think this is related.
Did it ever work right? When did this problem start?
Is it from all sources? All channels? All DSP modes?
Most probably the record play switching causing the problem. It is the long switch that is connected to the transport, and switches when you engage record. Flooding this switch with CRC 2-26 usually cures the symptoms you have. Just be careful not to get ahy near the transport:) Check it out and get back to me here is it does not sort out the problem. Cheers.
Can you please update this with your connections. I assume that you are connecting the turntables to the mixer? Verify that the mixer is set to send out true stereo. What mixer are you using?
Note that most mixers "pan" all of the channels to the center sending out mono to the left and right. In most live shows, it makes no sense to send out true stereo. The left and right are for the speaker chains. In order to get true stereo out of the mixer, you wil need to pan the input channel for the left side all the way to the left and the input for the right channel to the right.
