Question about Stanton T52 Turntable

1 Answer

I bought a Stanton T.52 turntable, but I need a belt. I've done some searches but can't seem to find anything. Where can I buy a belt?

I had a bigger belt with a different plate and got it to spin, but when I put the needle on the record, it stopped. So, I'm assuming the belt was too big and didn't have enough tension to keep the dish spinning with the added weight. I'm hoping that the correct belt will help. I just need to find a belt.

Stanton is a hell when it comes to parts, just via a dealer is the best solution. But have you first tried to get the grease and dirt of this belt? and offcourse the poulies (round metal or plastic it spins on)degreasen. Do you use a clampweight or so..? Kind of waste of money and don't forget that the motor in this pricerange ain't a strong one is, which spins at a perfect 33, the st.150 is also cheap built and if you go for the music quality i recommened pro-ject or rega. Those have nice beginner hifi tables with a way better arm for 400 euro's new and pro-ject has the option to upgrade it , by give them the arm you use and buy the more expensive/better one for way less. And those sound way better then a stanton. The needledoctor.com sells a lot gear http://www.needledoctor.com/Pro-Ject-Debut-Carbon-in-Light-Grey?sc=2&category=352. but this table comes included 2mred , which i also have, but your records needs to be real clean, so i use them seldom:). And i have checked the side where i sometimes buy vestax gear, but yours wasn't between them. Just go to a dealer and they get one for you or check ebay.
But first try to clean it well, a little oil on it and your grip is gone.

Goodluck, greetings richard

SOURCE: belt fell off my stanton

Ok, so put it back on.

It's very simple, just take the platter off, and out the belt on the bottom. Then put the platter back on, and you'll have to pinch the belt off the platter, and wrap it around the motor shaft.

You'll need to contact Stanton for support on this, as they do not have any authorized service centers. All repairs are done in house. However, because this is an older model, I am not sure they support it any more.

SOURCE: Stanton ST150 turntable won't spin

Hello DeKay,

I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.

Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.

I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!

So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.

I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.

I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.

I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.

I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.

Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.

I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.

I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!

Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!

My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.

So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.

Hope this helps you!

Peace,
DJ Quartz

SOURCE: trouble with cartridge alignment

Hi, i was going to suggest a dedicated cartridge weiging scales but the one one the arm should suffice.
Normally it should be between 1.5 and 2 grams, as a ball park figure , though some will vary quite considerably.I think this can take upto 5 grams( a bit heavy really)
Looking at the picture, it looks like the stylus cantilever has colapsed, by someone dropping the cartidge onto the record.
If you think the alignment is out then you neded to buy a Cartidge allignment protractor, so you can setup your cartidge properly and don't ruin your records.
You could try and loosed the cartridge bols and move the cartridge so its parallel with the front of the head shell.

Are you using it for DJ use or just for listening to music?

I have just found on ebay, this -

If you need more help, please ask.

Need a new belt


The best I can suggest is that you measure the diameter of the belt in mm and put that into google search with the words "turntable drive belt". Hopefully something should come up! I would suggest contacting Stanton, but I couldn't find the website for the company, so that might be a waste of time, but if you want to try have a go!

Have a look under the turntable to see if you can find a speed preset. You can adjust them with a screwdriver. They might be covered up with a sticker. Often there are two one for 33 and one for 45.

Stanton turntable: STR8-30 need to find out where i can buy replacement stylus please help


You look at the cartridge, determine its make/model number if visible and web search for that with 'replacement stylus'. There is no way we can tell what is installed on it.

Purchased stanton T.52 Turntable. hooked it up to stereo but volume is very very low. cannot find line / phono switch if there is one on this model.


The only output from the turntable is the low-level signal from the cartridge. Most likely, the receiver you've hooked it to doesn't have a phono input. Many receivers today don't come with one, and if you connect the turntable to a line-level input you get either very low volume or none at all, depending on the cartridge. What you'll need is a turntable preamp to boost the output to line level so the receiver will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp, available online and in some stores. You can also find preamps online (here's one at Amazon). With the preamp connected you can use any free input on the receiver.

Platter wont spin on stanton t 120, all the lights turn on fine, platter seems to feel jammed, it wont spin easily when i push it by hand.


The belt that drives the platter may have shifter or the gears that turn the platter may be unaligned. Open it up yourself and check out the inside but be careful not to break anything or go into a local music/dj store. they may be able to help you for cheap or for free.
