Question about Stanton STR8-30 Turntable

1 Answer

Stanton STR8-30 Hi, i bought this item from ebay, and when i got it the internal wiring that connects to the two output jacks have all come away. There are four white, red, blue and green wires that need to be soldered back onto the jacks. There is also a think black wire that is soldered to the earth output jack,which I suspect is correct. Can anyone help? Thanks Will

Re: Stanton STR8-30

How did the internal wiring come out? Was it pulled, does it look like someone attempted to repair it, and didn't do a good job? Unfortunately, you have to open up the unit to see where exactly those wires were removed from. Those are the tonearm wires, which attach to the PCB which distributes the sound to the RCA cables. If those were pulled out from the tonearm, you have to have the entire tonearm replaced (not diy work). If it came loose from the board - VERY ODD that all 5 cables came loose, but it was bought on ebay, so anything is possible - you need to open up the turntable and solder the cables back (easier said than done). Yes, the black wire is the ground. I suggest you take it to a qualified service center for a diagnosis. You might be able to recover the costs from the seller. Hope you didn't leave any feedback as of yet. It might be the only thing you can hold over the seller's head.

Stanton STR8-100 Turntable ground wire?

There is no such ground points in the Stanton STR8-100. The main thing you have to check is the RCA cable used. You should a high quality RCA cable suitable for Phono connections. If you use a normal RCA cable then it will produce HUM because if its weak ground shield.

Try with a good quality RCA cable with Good ground shielding.

I have a T62 Stanton and I want to play it like a normal turntable. I conected it in the Behringer mixer using L/R cable. I cannot hear the bass sounds with my headphones. What is happening?

Is it connected to a "PHONO" input or something not labeled explicitly for PHONO?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive.Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

I just bought the t.55 usb turn table and am having trouble playing it. Do you need an amp?

yes you need an amplifier with or without phono input.
your turntable has three types of output
1.phono output (can connect to the phono input of an amplifier which has a phono input)
2. line level output [can connect to ( aux,cd,tape,tunner what u prefer) an amplifier which has these inputs]
there is a selection switch for phono or line level output on the back side
3. and usb( to computer)

I can barely hear the record when played on my Stanton T.52

Is this a sudden onset problem or has it always been like this?

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

You don't say what electronics you're running this through. I suspect you have it jacked into a Line Level input instead of a specific Phono input. The result would be very low, tinny sound.

If so, you need to get a Phono Preamplifier.

TurnTable left channel no signal

Somewhere in the jack or the plug you have a wire broken. You will just have to look for it. If you have a volt ohm meter, this will aid you in finding the broken conductor. When you find the bad connection, you will probably have to solder it back together.

No power cable

There is no polarisation on the input lead - It won't hurt the deck if you get it reversed. If you have a shaver lead that fits, that should be fine.
