Do you mean no sound, or practically no sound?

It is most likely that you will need to buy a phono preamp to connect the two.

Audio technica at 120 cartridge will fit my project essential?


Having looked at the turntable it seems to mount the cartridge with two bolt like fittings. The Cartridge you want has two mounts on the side that will take those bolts.
You will have to adjust the arm to compensate for the weight differences between the two cartridges, but once done it should play fine.

Stanton t 60 turntable needle change


Well what's your purpose? Listening or dj'ing . For listening i prefer http://www.needledoctor.com/Ortofon-2M-Red-Phono-Cartridge?sc=9&category=-109 and for 50 dollar extra it comes complete on an om, which would be my choice, but is sounds nice,But clean first does records realllllll good. But tell me what are you really looning for, a lot depends on your mixer and speakers+ cables. Please don't buy the frozen cable--> bs which i may say with my phd. mi-elec. Most is really nonsens, but a lot is not! But your tt is too cheap for that..

WHEN I TRY TO USE ANY ORTOFON CARTRIDGE I GET FEEDBACK WHEN I PUT IT ON THE TONEARM BUT ON MY TECHNIC 1210 IT DOESNT HAPPEN BUT IF I USE ANY STANTON CARTRIDGE IT IS FINE? WHY WOULD THIS BE? ALSO THE...


I'd fix the tonearm issue first before using it to decide you have a feedback-related issue with one brand of cartridge. I can't say how that would be fixed.

Feedback? Like airborne sounds from the speakers vibrating the turntable and being amplified through the speakers? The biggest downside to old-school vinyl use is that possibility and the workarounds we had to use to prevent it. Acoustic and physical isolation are the only solutions.

Pioneer pl-200 turntable one channel is dull and muffled


I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.

Denon dp-35F turntable. What is the tone arm lead wiring layout? The cartridge is labeled RWGB, but not the tone arm.


It apears the lead wiring contact arrangement is typically generic. Green over Red and Blue over white. I searched Google by images and found the wiring arrangement in a detailed photograph of a Denon headpiece with cartridge installed.
So always remember to draw a diagram before disassembling something.

What is tracking force and arm weight for Dual 505-2 deck?


http://ortofon.de/ should give you the weight. It should also give you the range of tracking force. To get the right weight you can use a stylus balance. The electronic ones are expensive but good. The mechanical ones are not great but better than nothing. I set my turntable up with an Ortofon-branded mechanical balance for weight, and a test record for tracking force.

Turntable skips during playback


The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.

If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.

Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.

If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.
