Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable

1 Answer

Very low sound

After travelling with my equipment - One turntable is very soft in volume. So much so, that the mixer cannot even read the number of beats off it. I have tried swopping the needles. Do you think it is a wiring problem?

I have my PL-5 hooked up to an amp and speakers. The only way I can hear it is by turning the volume all the way up on the amp. Even doing that the volume is very low. The weird thing is with the amp...


You need to buy a turntable pre-amp, as the signal output is much too low to drive an amplifier. Or buy a DJ mixer, which has a turntable preamp built in, as does any "integrated receiver" which is basically a tuner/phono preamp/amplifier combo in one box.

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?


It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

Im new with the use of the record player since im tired of MP3's. i bought a Numark TTusb turntable connected everything, but the sound is low. i have to crank the volume to the max, and only get low...


A turntable use a magnetic cartridge and its output is only 5 to 10 millivolts.A moving coil cartridge is even lower,.2 to .5 millivolts(thats 1/2000 of a volt)in contrast, a mp3 puts out a 300 to 900 mv signal..so does a CD player. Your turntable does not have enough signal.You need to get an amplifier that has a phono input. Years ago,radio shack used to sell phono preamps that could plug into a tape or cd input.The other option is to buy a used mixer that has a phono input.The mixer output can drive the cd input easily,as the max output from a mixer is 1.5 volts to 2 volts.

Volume Level on Memorex 9299M 4-in-1 Turntable System Way Too Low


It's the nature of the all-in-one turntable beast to be low fi and low performance. Too much volume and vibration would feed back through the turntable.

It does have a Line Out that you could slave over to REAL electronics and speakers.

My turntable has no sound when my mixer is switch to the 'stereo' setting however when I switch it to 'mono' its a low or bad sound quality. Why is that?


At the back of your mixer you should have a switch to change the frequency for a turntable. Also make sure you have the turntable's earth (ground) wire connected.

I'm having problems setting up my numark tt1625 turntables with the mixer. I can't hear any sound even with volume on full. do I need an amp or is the equipment broken?


Double-click the Volume Control icon (beside your computer's clock, on the System Tray) to open the "mixer". Ensure that you have no "sliders" that have been set to "zero" ("no sound").

Connect the turntable-output to the "blue" (audio-in) socket on your computer's sound-card.
If you get no sound, move the connector to the "pink" (microphone-in) socket on the computer's sound-card, and try again.

1 X 1200Mk2deck higher volume / causing spkr not to work..


Problem If you swapped the two TT's would the problem stay with the connection on your mixer? At least then you/we would know wherein lies the problem. I'm betting thge low volume is because you have the phono jacked into a line level input like AUX instead of PHONO.

Typically, what you're describing is a phone source plugged into a NON-phono connection. (Tinny, low volume - classic lack of a phono preamplifier with RIAA equaliztion). A standard old-school tuntable requires a phono preamp that is labeled "PHONO". Nothing else will give it the boost and freq response correction LP's and phono cartridges produce.

Your problem #2 alludes to a channel problem with a turntable running through your mixer. This isn't rocket science. Swapping the two turntable channels around would probably change the apparent failing channel, right? Yes - Problem out at the turntable. No - problem in the mixer. You've already hinted at the source by monkeying with the tonearm wiring. You're on the right track. The tiny multi-colored wires in the cartridge shell are very thin and delicate. Their brass fittings sometimes oxidize and reseating them as you have done usually gives some relief. Kinks in the wires could cause your intermittent symptom. At the RCA end of the tonearm cables, make sure they're seated on with a twist to wipe off oxide.

Problem #3. Is it just bothering you or is there a functional problem, too?

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.

Low volume on both sides


Make sure you connected the turntable to the PHONO INPUT of your Vestax Mixer. If so, then the problem might be with your mixer output, or your sound system. You will need to test each unit individually to determine what the issue might be.
