Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
I'm working (as a DJ) with a 3-turntable setup, and my basic problem is that the ground wire is too short on my (Technics) turntables. Whichever turntable is furthest away from the mixer, its ground wire cannot reach the mixer.
Is it OK/effective (on a big sound system) to attach the ground to something other than the mixer? Opening up the turntable and replacing the ground with a longer wire is not an option (I don't have time; the gig is this weekend).
Connecting to another piece of equipment besides the mixer introduces the possibility of creating a ground loop, which, of course, is not desirable.
Just make a splice using Stakons (crimper). Just cut off the existing connector and crimp a (red) round crimp to the existing ground wire. Then take a length of same gauge and crimp a round a (red) spade Stakon on the other end. Then take a nut and bolt and connect the 2 round connectors and tape with good black tape (Scotch 33 or similar). That will get you through the Gig.
