    Well, it depends what you want to use the speakers for. Concert Hall, disco, bedroom?

    And, it will depend on what amplifiers you intend to use.

The best speakers are the ones that sound best to you.
You should visit a hi-fi or dj equipment dealer and ask him/her to demonstrate some of their stock to you.
Take with you one or two discs of your own that you know well to listen to on their equipment.
If they do not want to do this for you, find another dealer.

1210 mk5 poor sound


If the cartridge is good and your wiring is good. Then it's either got to be a fault on your amp, or there is a pre-amp in the deck itself faulty. Double check that the amp is working, amps have a pre-amp for record decks, they cause trouble a lot.
If you touch the wires that connect to the cartridge, you should get a buzz on either channel (remove them from the cartridge first). If you don't get a decent buzz, and you know that the amp is working fine, then there's something inside the deck causing the problem. In which case take the bottom off and take a look inside.

I have two technics turntables that aren't outputting any sound.. What are some possible problemns and how much would it be to fix???


Old decks have BAD RCA connectors. I would start there first. Its easy to solder them in... but you have to take the decks apart. As well as look at the leads that run through the tone arm down into the decks.

Probably your optical unit is worn. If you 700s are the newer ones, it'll be easy. Unscrew the 4 black screw under the unit to release the cover. Is the optical unit is exposed, check the label over it. If it says DWY1069, you'll only have to replace it, readily avaliable on ebay. It can be found very cheap ($15-$25).
If it says DWY1067, you have a big problem like me. 1067 is out of production. Check my other posts on how i'm trying to solve it.

Dj decks-no sound


You didn't state if you purchased this used or new. If used, maybe the tonearm or the rca cables are bad. Or, if you set it up inccorectly.

Just to be sure...

TURNTABLE -> MIXER PHONO INPUT (CH1 or CH2) -> OUTPUT MIXER (MAIN OUT) -> STEREO INPUT (AUX IN or LINE IN).

Make sure you have the line selected properly on your receiver, and if you have a tape function, press the button in and out. Sometimes this will affect the sound. Now, check to see if your getting any signal to your mixer. Make sure the toggle switch on your mixer is set for PHONO and not LINE. Raise all volumes, including heapdhone, and see if you hear or see anything on the levels.

If all is good, but no signal going to mixer, then you might have a bad tonearm or RCA cables....

To check, disconnect the cartridge/headshell from your tonearm. Look inside the tonearm, and you'll see 4 gold plated prongs. Make sure they are all evenly protruding. Also make sure they are all a shiny. If you see any black substance on any of the prongs, they need to be cleaned. If any look like they are stuck, and not sticking out like the other ones, this would also cause an issue. This cannot be repaired. You can try to get the prong to come out, but if it does not work, you will have to replace the tonearm.

If everything with the tonearm looks good, then the issue might be the RCA cables. There is no easy way to check this, other than opening up the turntable. This is not easy, and I do not recommend.

Let me know how it turns out.

Instruction manual for ministry of sound mixing decks


What are Ministry of Sound mixing decks? I am familiar with MOS, but was not aware they manufactured mixing decks?

Are you connecting these to a DJ mixer, or a Home Receiver?

If it's going through a home receiver, make sure you have them connected to the PHONO input on your receiver. If your receiver does not have a phono input, and you are connecting to the LINE IN or AUX IN section on the rear, you will not hear much. Most turntables require a pre-amplified signal, and only the PHONO input has this option. So, you will need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and connect your turntable to it, then connect the PHONO pre-amp to the LINE IN.

If you are connecting to a DJ mixer... same thing. Make sure you have them connected to the PHONO INPUT on the mixer. If you still don't get anything, then there might be something wrong with your mixer.

If you could clarify you exact set up, and the EXACT models, we can help you better.

1210 problem


Those are just standard phonograph player characteristics in my experience. You'll hear a tap on the deck because there's essentially a live mic ( the needle ) physically coupled with the record on the turntable and the rest of the phonograph player even though they try to dampen the coupling of the turntable as much as possible. The rumbling noise at high gain is because the turntables being driven by a motor via gears or a belt and creates some  vibration, wich is transmitted through the turntable and picked up by the transducer ( needle ), low frequency rumble, just like a recording studio on a busy street may pick up from road vibration/ noise.

Pitch Control Problems


How old are your decks? common this problem,,,, sounds to me that you have a dodgy switch probably where you have been using the 45 to pitch up intermittently from 33 this isn't really an expensive fix, though if you have warranty use it! if you are going to attempt this your self parts are gonna cost about 15 bucks! but get a service manual and take the greatest of care heard a few horror stories which is why if you need an engineer to work it for you out side of the warranty you are probably looking at 70-80 bucks, i fix my mark 2's when i need to ,,,just be sure you have read up b4 you start!
