Typically in about 95% of cases you will have to amplify your signal coming out of your mixer, befor going to your speakers. The line voltage that comes out is too weak to be heard unless amplified. When you purchase your amp, let the m know what the ohm rating is of your speakers,... this can be found on the back of the speaker, and will usually be 4 or 8 ohms(sometimes 2 or 16 but not too often).

    I've found the best place for used audio gear is craigslist. You can get a decent QSC, Mackie, or Crown amp pretty cheap.

My Technic 1200's are only playing out of one speaker at a time.


Clearly there IS a setup issue. Take serrato out of the loop for the moment and the mixer. Plug each deck (one at a time) into a hifi with a MM Phono input. Are you getting stereo? If yes, you know the decks are ok. Now reset the mixer completey. All eqs and pans including volumes to 12 o clock position and volumes to 0.
Make sure you connect deck one to a red and white of one phono input channel. Do not use 1 channel from phono and 1 from line. Use both left and right of the phono chanels.
Ok, now hook up the mixer to the amp. Keep the x-fader on channel 1 and concentrate getting a good stereo signal from this one chanel. Now do the same for the other cahnnel.

This should hae helped you to get up an running, if not narrow down the problem.

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?

More than likely your RCA cables are going bad, and will need to be replaced. Not the hardest self-repair, but you will need to have some soldering skills. In addition, caution should be taken when taking apart your turntable.

Check out the following videos for self-repair assistance on these wonderful DJ turntables.

If you think it's too much for you to do yourself, get some professional assistance. Shouldn't cost too much for repair.

Hope this helps some.

Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?

No music


Where do you have the turntable connected? Is it going into a DJ Mixer, a Receiver, or a Power Amp?

No matter the unit, make sure you have it plugged into the PHONO INPUT connection on the rear. If your receiver/amp does not have this, then you will need a PHONO PRE-AMP - The turntable connects to the PHONO PRE-AMP, and the PRE-AMP connects to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.

If you are connected to the PHONO INPUT of your mixer/receiver/amp, then the problem might be one of the following on the turntable:

1) Tonearm
2) RCA Cables
3) Cartridge

There is no easy way to see which one of these is the culprit, it's just a matter of elimination.

But, you didn't provide much information. If you can be more specific as to how you have your turntable connected, what kind of cartridge your using, and whether or not, you've determined that the problem is indeed the turntable and not your mixer/receiver/amp, or even your speakers. This would help in determining what the issue might be.

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
