Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Happened suddenly. previously, albums sounded fine. Am wondering if this is due to belt problem on turntable or something else. It's a fairly old (but good quality) technics. Have used it for years, never had a problem till now.
Couldn't find the model in the list so I chose the first one - it's actually an SL-B200 Technics turntable.
Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.
The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt
