What do I need regarding preamp/cartridge matching?

Cartridges require no special pre-amp. If your amp has one built in the sound from the deck will come out at the same level as other functions. If the amp has no inbuilt pre-amp you will still hear sound (if the cartridge is working) only the volume will be too low to listen to. All you need do is connect the record player to the amp and see if you can hear the sound. If you can't then you need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. By the way if you need a new cartridge you don't have to stick with a Gemini make. You can use any one you want as long as it will fit into the headshell. There some better makes of cartridge out there, that will give better sound quality. It all depends on what you want to spend on a cartridge!

I plugged my gemini pt-1000 turntable into the aux in the back of my stereo, but the sound is very low. Do I need a preamp?

If the amp doesn't have an imput marked phono, or deck, or turntable, the answer is yes. Search for a 'magnetic cartridge pre-amp' via google.

When I put an album on it skips for the first few songs then plays fine. The records are not warped. could something be wrong with the turntable. It happened with 5 or 6 albums I tried.


Make sure you have the deck set up correctly! Check the headshell - is the cartridge out of alignment or is the stylus worn?

Also, it may be that the counterweight is set too lightly for the cartridge and check the anti-skate control as well (example if the arm is tracking at 2 grams, anti-skate must be set at 2).

Follow these instructions for setting the counter balance:

Turn the weight so that the arm is just floating then set the balance ring (with the numbers on) you will see there is a line. Turn the ring not the weight to the ZERO mark where the line is on the top of the arm. Now turn the weight and ring together where it moves forward down the arm and set it at about 2 grams.

Now set the arm using the height adjustment that is the ring fitted to armboard and make sure the arm is straight (if not, the stylus will mistrack). Now try the deck again. You might have to make adjustments to the tracking weight again so whatever you have it set to, set the anti-skate to the same!

Good luck with it (:-)

Muffled sound

I don't think the problem is the actual stylus (needle), it sounds like the magnetic cartridge has become faulty in some way (it does happen). My advice is try another cartridge and stylus (borrow if you can). If the audio stays the same then it MAY be the wiring in the arm going through the plinth (deck) and these wires terminate to pins or a small pcb board in the turntable where the phono cables and arm wires are connected. There may be a bad connection inside.
Also, make sure your tonearm counterweight and anti-skate are set up properly as well as this can have an effect on audio.
I hope this helps as I have been into audio since I was a kid!
