Question about Stanton Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

A few days ago I got a used Stenton headshell cartridge from my friend. I tried on some Hi Fi forums to find some information about it with no succes. The cartridge is with old Stanton logo and sign 891sl. On the opposte side on the stylus shel is writen verticaly D891 SL. On te bottom of the body is engraved sl 6200. I have no technical data in the case if I have to replace the stylus. Is there any help? Thanks.

SOURCE: How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2

Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.

SOURCE: Only one channel plays.

If you disconect the wires to the cartridge and with deck plugged in to the amp and switched on, you can touch the ends of the wires with your finger. Though there are four wires, only two should produce a buzz, one in the left, one in the right speakers. If you get a buzz in each channel, the rest of the unit is working fine and you have a faulty cartridge or a poor connection to it. If one channel remains dead, then you have a problem in the wires to your amp or an internal fault inside the deck. If internal I suggest you remove the bottom of the turntable and have a look around.

SOURCE: Replacement Cartridge and stylus for Technics

That turntable, like many others, has an S-shaped tonearm with a removeable headshell. You can use any standard screw-mount cartridge as a replacement. Which one you buy depends on what you want to spend and your intended use. If you're a DJ you'll need a more rugged cartridge than you do for listening at home, for instance.

One company I buy lots of parts from is Parts Express. Here's a link to their styli/cartridges pages. If you have the original cartridge and stylus, you can check if they have the exact replacement. Otherwise you can browse the other choices. You can find many other sources as well, and you may have an audio shop or musician's store in your area who stock cartridges.

If Ortofon om 10 cartridge match for my str8-50 turntable?


That particular cartridge looks to me that it will fit the headshell of the turntable. So you can go ahead and buy it. I tend to look at the customer reviews of electrical items. If you get over 80 to 90% positive reviews for an item, then you should be okay with it.

Most cartridges will fit the headshells of turntables, the quality of them is largely a price issue, plus how fussed you are on the quality of the hi-fi sound of them. In the end it's a personal choice, since people's hearing is not the same.

I am now only waiting (and running) to see how long the battery will last this time...
This might be the problem... give it a try?

Hi there, try to perform system restore on your computer. Click on start menu then select all programs then click accessories then click system tools then click system restore. Once you are inside system restore software, select the date where your computer can connect to your wireless network then restore to that date.

Can i purchase a needle for the ION ITTUSB ?


Yes but it is not the needle you would buy (ah in the old days it was a needle) but a cartridge

The user manual available here gives you a little more detail.

It is sometimes possible to get the needle assembly for the more expesive cartridges but yoy would need to know the cartridge make and model for that.

If you unscrew the headshell locking ring on the tone arm you can remove the cartridge by pulling it out (hold the arm and the headshell doing this)

This would give you a better idea of the cartridge make and model and also allow you to see how it is mounted (2 screws) to the headshell.

JVC LA -55 turntable is skipping


It sounds as if the cartridge has been dislodged on the end of the tone arm Have you tried setting up the cartridge alignment. A badly aligned cartridge will cause exactly this problem.

What cartridge do I buy for this turntable


You should get a headshell first of all. Into the headshell you install the cartridge. I would get a Technics headshell just because it is of the same brand, and I use a SHURE M35X cartridge which is mean for dance or electro music. The headshell is your option but the cartridge should be matched up to what type of music you will be playing. Good Luck
