Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I bought a pair of 1210s off eBay and they worked fine for some time, but then they started distorting, mainly in lower frequencies. I thought that instead of paying to get them serviced I would install my rega tonearm from my regular turntable, which works fine. I did this, but I still have exactly the same problem. I'm completely baffled about this one because I don't see what else other than the tonearm could be causing the problem. Please help!
Well, if it's not your tonearm, then the issue is either your RCA cables (red/white), or your cartridge/stylus.
There is nothing else on this unit that would cause distortion in sound. Well, unless you have the unit sitting next to a very powerful electrical source. Try a different outlet as well, just to be on the safe side that it's not electrical interference.
