Stanton STR8-150 output issue. Hi. I bought a used pair of these and they're really good. However, the output from one is really distorted and clipped. It's not the mixer, cables, inputs or carts.

SOURCE: left output from one of my turntables cuts out regularly leaving a hum

No, the issue is either with the RCA cables or the tonearm. You might also want to check your cartridge and headshell connection. Make sure the contacts are nice and clean, and securely on the headshell. Have you tried swapping out your turntables? Take the left turntable, and put it on the right channel's input, and vice-versa? This will tell help isolate the issue. If the problem just moves, then we know it's not your mixer. If the problem remains on the same side, then you know there is something wrong with your mixer.

If the problem moves, then you can safely say it's your turntable with the issue. The STR8-30's aren't the greatest quality, so it's also possible that you have a faulty tonearm or RCA cables.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No power cable

There is no polarisation on the input lead - It won't hurt the deck if you get it reversed. If you have a shaver lead that fits, that should be fine.

SOURCE: echo into mixer

I think the Echo's output goes into the mixer's input.You should be using one's output into other's input...that's how things work.If you r talking about both the system's input then they won't work with each other. Other thing is that if it's mono then there r cable available for the use which transfers mono to stereo input and vice-versa.

SOURCE: Clip light is on even

One half of the power amp has failed. You can damage the speaker... do NOT use this until repaired.

SOURCE: Useing a Peavey XR 800F

First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

6 yrs old,tubes replaced by 1st owner,perfect for first 8 months,then seems volume diminished, and now distorts when i play hard,playing soft no problem but when i strum hard it distorts


Sounds very much like low emission in the output tubes. Do you know if they were replaced with brand new or used ones? Very possibly the replacements, if they were brand new, are Chinese sourced, and sadly their quality is very low and the lifetime short. Russian Sovtek tubes are much better quality and worth paying more for. It's also important to replace output tubes in pairs, and matched pairs if possible. If the tubes age at different rates, the result is signal distortion, getting progressively worse as the valves age further, although seldom bad enough to be really objectionable - unless one of the tubes has pretty much died altogether while the other one is still performing reasonably well - in that case the symptom is pretty much exactly what you are describing.... :o)

Stanton STR8-100 Turntable ground wire?


Hi,
There is no such ground points in the Stanton STR8-100. The main thing you have to check is the RCA cable used. You should a high quality RCA cable suitable for Phono connections. If you use a normal RCA cable then it will produce HUM because if its weak ground shield.

Try with a good quality RCA cable with Good ground shielding.

I just bought the t.55 usb turn table and am having trouble playing it. Do you need an amp?


hi,
yes you need an amplifier with or without phono input.
your turntable has three types of output
1.phono output (can connect to the phono input of an amplifier which has a phono input)
2. line level output [can connect to ( aux,cd,tape,tunner what u prefer) an amplifier which has these inputs]
there is a selection switch for phono or line level output on the back side
3. and usb( to computer)

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?

Make sure that the "line/phono" switch on the back of the unit is set to "line", or your output signal will sound distorted.
