Question about Stanton T55 USB Turntable

1 Answer

I own a Stanton T55 and I seem to have a problem making both speakers work with it. It is attached to an amp (Sansui A-910) and speakers (two Boston Acoustics A25). Yet when I listen to my vynils, only one speaker works. Sometimes, however, both will work, then it will revert back. I have been through another amp, other speakers and just recently aquired new RCA cables, none of which made a difference. The problem must therefore be with the table. I have no idea what to do!

Remove the wires to the cartridge (make a note of where they fit first). With your amp on, touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. On one wire you should hear a buzz in the right channel, on another wire a buzz in the left. The two others should make hardly sound at all, or nothing. This test will prove the signal is getting to the amp. While testing make sure you move any RCA leads or plugs, to be certain they don't cut out.
If this checks out then replace the cartridge.
If it does not then you have a problem either with the connectors or and internal amp inside the turntable itself.

SOURCE: I thought there was a problem with the speakers or

The "needle", now called a "stylus", doesn't produce anything on its own. At the worst, the tip will shear off and it will slide across and damage the vinyl. So probably your "cartridge" is defective. Now, most low rumbling distortion would come from your turntables motor or platter bearings. Also if you unplugged the Phono leads from the preamp ports in the back of your amp and the noise goes away then you have learned that the amplifier is not producing the effect. Does this help?

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.

SOURCE: Half the signal only through left speaker

Try the switch in the other position and see if that fixes the problem. some turntables had a phono level that is different than a standard rca line level input. Also try a different cable if the rca is not hardwired in to the turntable. The cable could be bad. If worse comes to worse upgrade to another amplifier or tuner that has a separate phono input. hope that helps.

You can use a piece of speaker wire to replace the missing bar. those speakers are designed to be used with the bars in place for normal use. they can be removed if you are bi-amp/bi-wireing them.

You can get a cable to convert the two outputs from the turntable to a 3.5 if that will help. Amazon should have them. Picture below:

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


hi,
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 miss some cables of the Digital BA735. Which cables I have to purcahse?


You need a set of RCA cables, Red & White, you will need two sets. The Cables, simply wire color to color. You nay also need, some adapters, if you cannot get RCA to Phono Jack, on one end. To make with PC, Output Socket, you need an 3.5mm Phono, Jack, and on the other end, the RCA, for connection to the Speakers
