Question about Stanton STR8-30 Turntable

1 Answer

Which cables do I need to connect my turntables to the mixer?

I recently moved house and my cables have got lost somewhere a long the way. What is the name of the cables I require? If I remember correctly the grounding wire was attached to red and white cables. Rca cables? when i look online I can't seem to find any with grounding wires attached? does this matter or can I just use separate grounding cables?

Thanks

Why won't both my turntables play out of my mixer?


I am guessing but it sounds like a gorse impedance mismatch. You should never connect two outputs together unless they are specifically designed for that. Since you are listing to mono why not send each output to the Base Amp the other to the cabinet. That should resolve the problem.

You seem to have some feedback hum from somewhere. I would think it might be caused by a faulty connection somewhere.

I received the turntables and mixer but Im having trouble installing everything together. Is there any companies that can help you install the turntables, mixer, and speakers


Not to worry if you can take some pains and be confident. First of all arrange the turntable, the mixer, the amplifiers and the speakers. Connect the turntables two RCA pins to the PHONE pins L and R. of the mixer. Using another set of RCA cables to connect the output of the mixer to the amplifier's AUX inout L and R. Try to connect the red and white in accordance to the L&R. The speakers should be cconnected to the left and right of the amplifier's main. if you have front and rear use them but connect with the polarity of the red and black polarity . Use a good power supply multipin unit to connect all the power. Do not switch on until you have checked once again. Now switch on and play your favourite record. DO take time to do and you will suceed. Good day

Cant connect my Numark PT-01 to my Numark DM950 mixer


What do you mean it didn't work? What happened? Are you getting no sound, did the plugs not fit? Please be more specific.

If you are not getting any sound, make sure you connected to the LINE input of the mixer - the PT01 has Line Level outputs, so you CANNOT connect it to the Phono input, as the signal will be too hot for the mixer - so make sure it is in the LINE INPUT. Also make sure the toggle switch on the mixer is set to LINE. There is nothing else to this set up, raise volumes, and that's it. It's very simple.

Connect turntables(technics SL1210MK5) to a mixer?


None. The cables are already attached to the turntable. They are hard wired to the unit. The red & White cable. Just connect to the PHONO INPUT on your DJ MIXER, and connect the thin ground wire to the GROUND terminal on the mixer. That's it your ready to go.

Connecting a behringer djx700 mixer to a panasonic amp


The problem is most likely between the turntable and mixer. You need to be sure that the turntable is connected to a phono input. I'm not sure if your mixer has one. If not, you need to have a phono pre-amp between the turntable and the line input on the mixer.

Check that first and get back to us if you still have problems/questions.

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.

Left output from one of my turntables cuts out regularly leaving a hum


No, the issue is either with the RCA cables or the tonearm. You might also want to check your cartridge and headshell connection. Make sure the contacts are nice and clean, and securely on the headshell. Have you tried swapping out your turntables? Take the left turntable, and put it on the right channel's input, and vice-versa? This will tell help isolate the issue. If the problem just moves, then we know it's not your mixer. If the problem remains on the same side, then you know there is something wrong with your mixer.

If the problem moves, then you can safely say it's your turntable with the issue. The STR8-30's aren't the greatest quality, so it's also possible that you have a faulty tonearm or RCA cables.

Hope this helps.

Feedback humming noise


This is a tonearm issue. Your tonearm probably has a loose ground connection, or if you moved it recently, may have been damaged in transit. Also, try and move your turntable to a different location in the room. If your near any serious power source (light dimmer switch, microwave, frig, etc), it will only amplify the issue. But other than that, it sounds like a common tonearm issue, and you will need to have your tonearm replaced.

Very low volume!


If you're used to playing your vinyl through a hi-fi turntable (and not DJ turntables) then you're probably used to your turntable having a built-in amplifier. DJ decks don't have these and if you plug into 'line' it will come out very quiet. Try plugging into 'phono' if you have it, if not you'll need some extra amplification somewhere between the deck and the speakers (a mixer usually takes care of some of this before it goes into the main amp of the system). Hope this helps. Ad
