Direct Drive Issues

My Stanton str8-80 turntable is not functioning properly. The Torque on the drive is not as powerful as it used to be. I tried greasing it up a little but it didn't help much.

I have a Stanton turntable, model T52. I think that the internal fuse or the transformer has blown. How do I check to see if it is the transformer or the fuse or both? There is no power getting to the


I cannot view any more information in your initial post after
There is no power getting to the except that you think the fuse is intact. From my experience, there is no transformer driving the turntable motor since these operate directly from the power mains. Can you show us a picture? Dave

Does sony ps-lx200h have a moving magnet?


Hi David,
Stanton 90 USB Turntable Review. Here is an approach and you will find many.

The best informational sight by opinion to involve yourself is a place called Product reviews and is the next link.

Lenco Turntable Reviews Lenco Turntable Product Information .

This has everything you need and can be seen. Your Stanton is there. I like the resource for anything. To answer your direct question, yes , a moving magnet is a part of the Stanton family system. It is considered a professional series. Considering choice and the degree of use is yours. The stylus can wear out prematurely as reported. See for your self. You know best. Keep spinning. Fare . Well.

Need a new belt


The best I can suggest is that you measure the diameter of the belt in mm and put that into google search with the words "turntable drive belt". Hopefully something should come up! I would suggest contacting Stanton, but I couldn't find the website for the company, so that might be a waste of time, but if you want to try have a go!

Stanton str8 60


The Stanton STR8-60 is a direct drive record deck, so this shouldn't happen unless the platter was damaged but after a little research I found that the Stanton's can get a faulty chip which is meant to regulate the speed and therefore can make it spin erratically.

The motors in my stanton str8 30 have not got any torque. can i fix, replace or upgrade them? any help appreciated


If it is a direct drive turntable, you will have to check the gears under the platter. If it is belt driven, you will have to replace the belt

Torque uneven on turntables, its a possibility it needs new motors what is your opinion


No, there is no motors on these things. They operate on a direct drive system. What this means is that there are various components/circuits which control it's drive function. If the torque is off on your turntables, more than likely one of the resistors is just old and needs to be replaced.

Not a job for a novice. Take it to a professional.... someone who knows about 1200s.
