You should first try and get with who you bought it from first. If that doesn't work, I would phone Ion up and explain to them what happened.

SOURCE: bought an ion profile pro hooked it up it plays

Hi, I presume you are using the software that came with the turntable.

I know this might sound a little (whats the word now), Patronising!

I have never really heard one but i get the impressing, that it's a case of, you gets what you pays for.

If you are interested in half decent quality, i would buy a good budget turntable with a Moving magnet cartridge HeadAmp and connect that to the audio input of your sound card. Because at the end of the day it will still take you the same length of time but you will have a far superior quality sound and recording.

You see, this is where people then start saying that cd is better than vinyl because of cheap inferior turntables hitting the market.
It doesn't give the analogue source any chance against the digital domain.

I'm sorry to go off on one, but you are not the first one that has complained about these turntables having such a bad sound.

You can get a good second hand turntable on Ebay.

Just to note - Make sure your records are in good condition, because if they are scratched, finger marked or dusty, then it could well sound like muddy water.

If you think it is faulty, then I would send it back, but i would get a couple of peoples opinion first.

If you need more help, let me know please and i will do some more research for you.

Where do I get set of hinges for dust cover of AKAI AP-X1 turntable

Check on ebay for that tt and maybe someone has parts listed. Or try the manufacturer but if a unit is more than ten years old parts are usually no longer available.

I have a problem trying to install the dust cover to american audio tt 2400 turntable

For a man to accomplish such a demanding task, one needs at least two of the following:
  1. Super-human strength
  2. Set of working pliers, big enough
  3. Some form of vision protection, such as goggles, welding mask, ice-hockey helmet with visor etc.
  4. Patience
If you happen to have accumulated super-human strength somehow, please use your perk in a gentle fashion since the cover and the hinges are made of plastic. Applying maximum force in this delicate matter is utterly exaggerated. You will only break the plastic materials.
Otherwise do the following (which I also did):
  1. Grab the spring in one of your hands.
  2. Grab the pliers in another hand (preferably the one with more muscular perplexion).
  3. Snap one rotation of the spring so that you end up with a slightly shorter spring.
  4. Install the spring in the hole provided.
  5. Equip the spring with the foolish looking, very small plastic object.
  6. Try and push the spring - plastic object - combination down while pushing the hinge-part with the metal rod applied towards the hinge counterpart. If you fail, the plastic object will try to penetrate your sight-organs.
  7. Via trial - and - error, repeat above-mentioned steps until you achieve great success and your dust cover is in place. Use your patience skills.

Ion profile pro -- recording picks up background sound

If you're picking up background (room) sounds the TT pickup is acting as a microphone. Isolate it physically from air- and room-borne vibrations. Turn your speakers down so they don't add to the problem, or use headphones while recording.

All parts are discontinued for this model. The SL1200MK2 dust cover will not fit this turntable. You can actually have a dust cover made rather simply and cheaply (depending on where you live). Just take the dimensions to a PLEXIGLASS or even a GLASS shop. You can even purchase the Plexiglass yourself, cut it, and glue it together. I would suggest getting it professionally done. You can use any high impact plexiglass. Get something that is resistant to scratches and discoloring.
