Question about Stanton ST-150 Turntable

1 Answer

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 sound from the needle is the same distorted sound coming from the speakers. The sound really gets worse in the upper registers in the higher keys. We just replaced the needle and the same thing is happening with the new stanton needle.

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?

No sound from subwoofer


Make sure your front speakers are set to small in the setup menu. Regardless of how large your speakers are, if they are set to large the receiver will put the low frequency sound out the speaker jacks and turn off the subwoofer output

I can barely hear sound even when turned all the way up


Turn-off all "surround sound" modes. Try listening to just a plain AM or FM talk station. Then you can check your speaker wiring. Some stereo programming can turn into nothing with certain surround modes, so make sure that your speaker wiring is correct by using the radio or CD player with it first.

HK 3480 sound suddenly cuts out


your fuses are blown by possible crossing speaker wire - and + together. I did this and kept turning it on but I ended up frying the unit. Check your wires and make sure that they are seperated properly. If problem continues then unscrew the shell and replace 1 or all 3 fuses (depending on what was blown) with GMA 8 amp fuses. good luck.

Intermittent breaks/pauses in sound


Yes. I had a H/K reciever in my shop last month with a similar problem. It turned out that it had micrscopic cracks developing on the motherboard, which caused it to shut down as they heated up. It wasn't repairable.

Subwoofer heard when only B speakers selected


This is really weird. Normally, the subwoofer must be turned off when you turn on B speakers. But, hold on.. I have recently tried to do the same thing as you do, and the result is the same as yours. The problem is that you have to turn off A speakers completely when you activate Bs. If you have an A/B Speakers switch, first push the A to turn them off, after that press "B" to listen to music downstairs. I hope it works.

Not getting sound from right speaker


How do you have the audio hooked up from the TV set? If its s video or RCA plugs? If it is switch them around and see if it swaps channels that goes out . If it does then the output cable or the jack is bad. If your using an HDMI ir a scart cable. The cable or connections could be bad. Unplug it and reinsert it or while the units on mover it around and see if the audio comes back on.
