The PCL-30 does not look like a standard headshell. I doubt the above answer is correct.

Does your receiver have a dedicated phono input? If not you'll need to use a preamp between the turntable and receiver. Your other turntable may have a preamp built in and the Technics not.

If this does not help, please post the brand and model of both your receiver and your other turntable.

SOURCE: marantz tt2200 mc or mm?

Not sure on the answer to this, but I would recommend using a MM cartridge. Simply because of the cost involved in reproducing the proper sounds utilizing an MC cartridge, as well as the maintenance involved. In addition, the cost of an actual MC cartridge. Expect to spend about US$200 for an average one. For that kind of money, you can get a top of the line MM cartridge. Plus, they are hard to source, especially when the needles break.

Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: Tonearm Weight, Good Replacement Stylus, Gain level

Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

If Ortofon om 10 cartridge match for my str8-50 turntable?

That particular cartridge looks to me that it will fit the headshell of the turntable. So you can go ahead and buy it. I tend to look at the customer reviews of electrical items. If you get over 80 to 90% positive reviews for an item, then you should be okay with it.

Most cartridges will fit the headshells of turntables, the quality of them is largely a price issue, plus how fussed you are on the quality of the hi-fi sound of them. In the end it's a personal choice, since people's hearing is not the same.

Deck produces no sound at all, amp and pre amp is fine, hum through amp when wires to the cartridge are pressed, even touching the stylus makes a slight sound but when put on the record no sound what so...

Bad cartridge if you get a buzz from touching the wires to it once they are removed. That shows that the system is working but the output from the cartridge is rubbish!

Problems connecting turntable to amplifier

I hope you have it connected to the Phono input on the left rear of the receiver. Otherwise the minute signal generated by the phono cartridge is too small for the other inputs to process.

The buzzing noise/bad channel is probably a bad connection in the tonearm/headshell connection or one of the 4 wires attaching the cartridge to the shell. If you DON'T want to blow up your speakers, TURN YOUR RECEIVER OFF, turn the volume to 0 or select another input before messing around with the tonearm.

Swap the two channels from the tonearm to the Phono connectors to prove the buzzing is external (at the turntable). I think the Dual CS415 uses the old standard headshell. With the volume down flip the lever toward the back, carefully remove the assembly and look over the tiny multi-colored wires with the brass crimp-on ends. We're looking for tight kinks or broken wires. Then put it back. maybe reseat it a few times to wear off any oxidation and try it again.

JVC LA -55 turntable is skipping

It sounds as if the cartridge has been dislodged on the end of the tone arm Have you tried setting up the cartridge alignment. A badly aligned cartridge will cause exactly this problem.

Frequent sound


Please re-check all your other equipment, as its highly unlikely to be the 2 turntables at fault, let me know how you got on.

What cartridge do I buy for this turntable

You should get a headshell first of all. Into the headshell you install the cartridge. I would get a Technics headshell just because it is of the same brand, and I use a SHURE M35X cartridge which is mean for dance or electro music. The headshell is your option but the cartridge should be matched up to what type of music you will be playing. Good Luck
