Using turntable (audio technica at-lp 120) with built in pre amp the sound is distorted and broken up. the turntable requests phono turned on to use. Does the receiver have a pre amp or boost signal...


A turn table produces sound voltage in the millivolt range. If you have it connected to a receiver that has a phono input and the turn table is pre-amplified, you are overdriving the receiver and it is clipping the audio and making it sound bad.

Distorted sound on Technics SL-1200/1210


You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

I have an Audio-Technica turntable (AT-PL50). I recently moved and when I hooked my turntable back up, the sound is terrible. It sounds distorted, similar to the sound of blown-out speakers. But, I checked...


it sounds like your cartridge is shot and damaged.

I thought there was a problem with the speakers or receiver, but after turning off the speakers and listening to the sound from the needle, it appears that the distortion is coming from the turntable. The...


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?

Sound very distorted


This turntable has a preamp switch on it, which is probably on and what is causing the distortion. Take off the metal record platter by lifting up on the two holes gently. Turn the pre-amp switch to 'off' and then try it again. This is probably it...

Or you can plug it into an input that doesn't have a preamp and that should work.

Your turntable is a preamp. Your amplifier might be going bad. did you connect it into phono? dont connect it into the cd or dvd input because those wont work.

Turntable Issues


Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).

BaD SouND


Do you have the unit in Turntable mode? Can you describe the distorted sound? Is it a hum, sound cuts in/out, scratchy sound? There have been alot of issues which plagued this unit. We get at least 1-2 a week in here for various issues. Although, I've never had one with distorted sound, that wasn't caused by something else (bad RCA cables, faulty mixer line, etc).

So make sure it is the unit. If so, you will need to take this in to a qualified service center for repair as determining the issue requires the tech run some test on the unit.
