Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable

1 Answer

I've just bought a used Sony PSLX 250H running it through a Cambridge Audio preamp then into a Sony AVR. I turned it all on yesterday and got a horribe rumble as opposed to a proper sound and it wasn't following the lines on the vinyl it was just dragging over the same spot. The needle doesn't look overly worn but does it sound like it needs replacing?

The stylus point would be hard to judge with the naked eye. Plus what you describe is the symptom of a stylus that has gone. The only other explantion would be to have too weight applied. Reduce the pressure by adjusting the weight at the end of the arm. If that doesn't make the stylus play ball, replace it.

What's the power supply needed to run a sony pslx 10

Fortunately for you somebody on a forum did rebuild this turntable to working order, without the rest of the system. This is what they wrote:
"A 2x10 V 10Watt transformer to the wires ( white connected to the center tap ) and the TT came to life. The TT doesn't contain a preamp but the cartridge is connected to the small PCB covered by a metal shield ( you can put RCA connectors in the back like I did )."

Just set up my brand new cambridge audio azur 650a amplifier. It keeps cutting out with the protection light blinking three times indicating "overvoltage" according to the manual. I'm using it at...

Just make certain that the connections are all good with no wires touching. If it still doesn't perform after that return it to where you bought it and get a new replacement or your money back.

HI, Can the Cambridge Audio 640a integrated amp be used as a preamp if I buy a separate power amp.

Of course, just run an audio RCA pair out from the Pre Out to your next amp and any input. All control for volume, tone, etc will remain with the 640A.

Cambridge azur amp 640a working brill till yesterday !! now protection light !!!! turned it off numerous time etc plenty of venterlation carnt get it to work

Looks like the fuse blown.. or the classic symptom of electrical fault inside the amp. 640A uses a sensitive protection circuit often ends up in this irritating situation. Normally, there is nothing much you can do, but just check your wall plug connection for Open Ground or Left & Neutral reversed issues. If the wall plug is free of error, then you should better contact CA technical support.

I need a psu for a Cambridge Audio Azur 540P phono preamp

any stepdown transformer rated 12V secondary with at least 0.5A rating would do (12V, 500mAmp). I know they said to use only the supplied power unit but hey that's business! but make sure whether your mains supply is 110Vac or 220Vac.

The left channel in my Cambridge Azur 640 amplifier keeps cutting out. Wierdly I can often 'shock' it back to life by quickly turning up the volume a lot. Any ideas?

have the volume control cleaned by a spray of electronic contact cleaner. If the carbon coating material is already wiped-out due to use, have the part replaced

Can't connect amp to speakers

MOST amps have a small plastic plug in the center of the amps speaker output sockets use a small screw to pull these out.
