Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable

1 Answer

Audio connections I just replaced the RCA output on my turntable in the hope of fixing the connection of the right channel. This did not remedy it, however, i raised the tonearm section via the collar around the base and the lock switch. Now both channels work again. Is there the possibility that the audio wires are interfering with moving section of the base plate? I don't know if this is a reasonable explanation. Any help with this would be marvellous. Regards AJ.

    i think i shall lock the tonearm's base collar and never move it again! i fear that one of the thin cables from the cartridge to the base has become ensnared under the lock mechanism. Very bad, i think that my brother has brought them from some childish monkey, very silly to mess with technics, they are far superior to any other brand. thankyou for your input dj audio pro, the quest for perfect hardware continues.....

Unless you had your tonearm replaced previously, perhaps the technician did not route the cables correctly through the tonearm base. If so, then this would explain why it works after you raised the tonearm height.

If not, then consider yourself lucky that you didn't have to replace the tonearm. Often times, replacing the RCA cables correct the problem. However, if it does not, the next step is to replace the tonearm. And if neither works, your issue is with your cartridge or headshell (which you should have checked first). Or sometimes, the work was not done correctly when the RCA or Tonearm was replaced - so make sure you use a reputable service tech for this. If you are going to do this yourself, make sure you triple check your work.

Can I connect a turntable to my Phillips LX900R system?


Assuming that the turntable has RCA audio output jacks, then yes you can. Just run the 2 channel RCA cable from the Output of the turntable to one of the AUDIO IN plugs on the back of the Philliips unit. Note which input you used and select it via the remote or on the front of the unit itself.

Why won't both my turntables play out of my mixer?


I am guessing but it sounds like a gorse impedance mismatch. You should never connect two outputs together unless they are specifically designed for that. Since you are listing to mono why not send each output to the Base Amp the other to the cabinet. That should resolve the problem.

I have a new set up and i need a step by step instruction on how to set up the mixer to the amp and the decks to the mixer/amp


if this is a dj type set up, the mixer should have a main output (RCA or XLR), that is what you connect to the input on the amp, each deck should have RCA outputs, depending on if they are turntables or cd players, plug the turntables into the phono channel inputs on the mixer and if they are cd players, plug them into the line inputs on the mixer

Where are the amps and how do i by pass them for the stereo


The amps are located inside the radio. Most in-dash receivers that provide for "pre-amp outputs" also called "low level outputs" do so by providing female RCA type jacks. These are often found at the end of a short (4 - 6 inch) cable and are usually color coded red & white or red & black (some receivers provide a yellow RCA jack for video in / out, too). To use these RCA audio jacks, you need to realize that one jack is for the left channel source and the other is for the right channel source for a stereo signal. You will have to connect a compatible plug and cable of enough length to extend to a remote amplifier's RCA input jacks. The vehicle's speakers would also need to be connected directly to the same amplifier's output terminals. Using the two audio (left and right) RCA jacks will only allow the radio to control balance of the left and right audio, no fader (front and rear) control is possible. To get fader control, you'd have to either have a radio with four RCA low level output jacks (front L & R *and* rear L & R), or use the radio's speaker (or high level output) wires and connect them to the amplifier's speaker (or high level) input terminals.

All unused receiver wires should be terminated in a wirenut or securely wrapped in electrical tape to prevent accidental contact with grounded metal or other wires behind the dash.

I hope this helps!

Connecting a turn table to a micro stereo system


You will need the following to connect this to that system:

1) Phono Pre-amp
2) 3.5mm to RCA adapter or 3.5mm 'Y' cable to RCA
3) Turntable

Your turntable will connect to the Phono Pre-Amp input. This pre-amp will also have an output. This output is RCA, from here you connect to your system using the 3.5mm adapter or cable.

That's it.

Need Adaptor connect DJ Tech Turntable to Sony Mini Hi Fi MHCRG495


The USB turntable is likely a USB data connection and not a USB audio connection, so you will need to take the audio output from your Mac G4 to your Sony Mini Hi Fi...

You will likely need a stereo mini-plug (3.5mm or 1/8-inch) to stereo RCA plug cable (red and white RCA plugs). This is often referred to as a "stereo Y-cable."
