Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Hello, I am looking for a bit of advise, i purchased 2nd hand decks, one which is perfect.
The other one plays some records perfect, but others are very bassy / hissy / distorted.
I changed the needles and its still happening.
Any idea what the issue could be?
On the 1200s, there really isn't anything that would cause such an issue unless you have a bad tonearm, or faulty RCA cables. If you've isolated the issue to the unit, and not the cartridges/styli/headshells, then the only next course of action is to have your RCA cables replace, and if the problem persists, the only other faulty part would be the tonearm. You can purchase parts for your 1200 HERE, however, soldering skills will be required if you are going to attempt to do this yourself. Also, a word of caution, the Tonearm is not easy to replace, so you might need professional assistance with this one.
Also, if you can ask the previous owner if any work was done on the units, perhaps it was a self-repair, and was not done correctly, causing these issues.
