Stanton T80 power source

Hello All.
I am the proud owner of a Stanton T.80 bought in Canada in 2006. Now I live in Spain, and I have taken this item with me.

As the Stanton T80 that I have is working with AC 120V, it does not work in Europe. I've tried with an AC converter from 240V to 120V, but every time I use it, the switcher ON of the stanton "dies". I think it is burned.

So, I would to substitute the power source, using an external one. I would like to know only the voltages out of the HK 411-80-408 EI-48, unit of the Stanton. With this little information about the DC voltages, I could get my stanton work properly again. I am plenty satisfied with this unit, so I don't want to change it.

Thank you all for your attention and time.

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.

Can a Stanton str8-80 tonearm be fitted to a Stanton str8-100?

I am looking at pictures of the both the STR8-80 and STR8-100 and the both have the straight tone arm. So when you say an "s" arm I am a bit confused. The main part of the STR8-80 is the same as the 100. However the 100 has a different base to it, with additional controls such as lock(?) on it.

Having said that here is a guy that has converted the 100 to an S arm with pictures!

How do I connect a Stanton T80 turntable to my PC?

First of all you can try with the line input of your Pc audio card. There will be 3.5 mm stereo socket in the pc audio card (blue color ) which will marked as LINE IN. To connect the turntable to this socket you need a RCA to 3.5mm Stereo converter like on in the picture bellow. I have also added a link to a video which will help you to do the same. In the video the are showing a cassette deck. In you case Turntable in place of cassette deck.
You have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINE OUT. Then you can use any software to record the signals from the LINE INPUT of your PC.

If you need a high quality recording the you have to use a special converter which will do the job neatly.

To convert or upload (copy) tracks in LP in good quality then you need a interface unit between the Turntable an PC. Which will convert the analog audio out to Digital signal ( RCA to USB). The unit will come with the driver for it. That you have to install on your PC.

Keep on thing in Mind that when your are using such a converter between Turntable and PC you have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINEOUT.

Here i have added link which will lead you to such a USB converter. Which will provide you studio quality stereo.

I pluged my american stanton T60X (125V) to 225V. Any solution?

if you can find a fuse or reset switch, replace/reset that first. look around where the power cable enters the device.

if it has no fuse, you've probably cooked the transformer which converts outlet voltage (mains) to whatever the voltage the device is designed to run on. if that's the case, then you'll just need to swap in a transformer that matches the requirements of the deck to the output voltage of whatever country you want to use it in.

if this sounds too daunting and you're not confident with taking electrical stuff apart, go to a shop and get them to sort it for you.

long and short, don't ditch your deck just yet, Chet.
