Distorted sound on Technics SL-1200/1210

Just received my two Technics turntables (SL-1200 and SL-1210) along with my Pioneer DJM-350, but when everything is set up and I'm playing a vinyl, the sound is very deep and unclear, and also gets very distorted if I'm playing on high volume. I tried to connect the decks directly to my amp, and everything sounds fine, so there is nothing wrong with the cartridges or the amp.

You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Fire extinguisher!


Question 18 on this page should give you an answer

It might not be the answer you want, but it is a valid answer.

According to it your unit has been sprayed with a dry powder chemical extinguisher which is very hard to remove from equipment.

Turntable grinds to a halt.


The Technics SL-BD22 is a belt driven turntable. It is most likely possible that the belt wore off, wore down, or could have spun off. The platter should have 2 holes in it. One of them should alow you to see, and replace the belt. YOu can lift the platter off the turntable via those two holes. MAKE SURE IT IS TURNED OFF AND UNPLUGGED......

You can find a replacement @

http://1200s.com/Store/PARTS-TECHNICS-TURNTABLES-Drive_Belts/c271_272_278_398/index.html

And the part should come with instructions. Those guys are very thorough.

Keep me posted.

Weak output signal when compared to my other table.


This does happen. The RCA cables used on the Technics 1200's aren't of the greatest quality, and you will find lower output on some turntables. This can become an issue, if you record your sets to your PC, or you use Serato, Final Scratch, or any of the digital control set ups. There is only 1 way to resolve this, and that's to switch out the RCA cables on both turntables, and ensure that they are matched. This can be done by any qualified audio service technician. Just make sure you choose some good quality RCA cables, and not the standard OEM Technics cables.
