I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

There should be a "C" clip on the center post that holds the record in the middle. Pop that off and gently wiggle table up. Careful not to over stretch the belt. There could be a cover over the clip.

What can I use to replacemy stlus/needle?


You'll need to do an internet search for a compatible Stylus that was made for your record player. It has to match exactly. It doesn't necessarily have to be made by the same maker though, just compatible.
A search using the words "Pioneer replacement stylus" gets you: http://www.needledoctor.com/Contact/Pioneer_2 and many, many more. Try "Sanyo replacement stylus" and you get http://www.styli.co.nz/sanyo.html.
There's lots of them out there for every manufacturer/model.

Better yet, try to look up your stylus part number in your owners manual, if you still have the old one look for a part number on it. Then look it up on EBay or Amazon. It's a lot easier to track one down if you can find the part number of the original part. Since you didn't list what model record player you have you'll just have to start with the manufactures name and start from there. Lots of companies are still out there that sell them. Good luck.
If you need more help let me know. I'll be glad to try and find one for you. I'll need the manufacturer of the record player and the model number.

Most likely needs a new needle. Try needlelady.com or needledoctor.com Modern record players usually track at 2 to 4 grams of pressure. Thats about as much as a penny weighs maybe. Putting more pressure on it, will only cause it to destroy your records or sound bad. Weight adjustment is usually a very fine spring or counterweight that adjusts on the tonearm. Linear units use optical sensors to keep the tonearm aligned, but use traditional counterweights to control force. You need a gram scale made for phonos to properly adjust it. Radioshack USED to sell them 30 years ago, but most times you can just use a guess if the needle only slightly deflects when placed onm the record your usually good. If it's simply jumping and sliding across the record then the needle is shot. Even diamonds don't last forever,. as they are synthetically produced.

Cannot locate a replacement needle without a make. Can you help? I have the number on the needle being T50HD. Is it ceramic or magnetic? I also need a manual. Thank you


The make is probably printed on the cartridge rather than the stylus but it could well be this one (ceramic)
http://www.stylusplus.co.uk/bush-t50hd-stylus-1890-p.asp
Personally I prefer to change the whole cartridge rather than just the stylus for better sound quality. At least replace the cartridge every 2nd or 3rd needle change -
You don't specify the make of equipment you need a manual for but the best place will be the support pages of the website of the original manufacturer. If you need a manual for a record-player cartridge they usually come in the box.

How do i hook up a record player


A record player has a very small signal coming out from the cartridge.If your amp doesn't have "phono in" then try "tape in".If no luck then you have to plug the record players output to a preamp first then from there to "aux in".

Unfortunately without seeing the actual needle or cartridge, it is just about impossible to provide you with a part number. Where are you located? Needles are still available and I sell them all the time. I will try to locate the "standard" part number for your model, but there were often different setups available. Is there any way to provide a photo of the one you have now?

Check the balance of the tonearm as well. If there is not sufficient pressure on the needle, it won't track the record correctly either. Please note, the you shouldn't put too much pressure or you will wear the record.

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Dan

Technics SL-B2 not cooperating with R4450W Soundesign receiver


I would suspect that the receiver has only an AUX input. If that is the case, you will need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These are readily available for about $20 or so. This will boost the low signal level from the table to line level which is what the AUX input is expecting.

If you cannot see a small tip on the needle then yes it is worn out,but you can check by rubbing your finger over the tip when the system is on,if you hear sound through the speakers then it should play the album,make sure that the weight at the back of the arm is set to keep the needle in the groove as this may be set to far back,move it forward to keep weight on the needle.

hope this helps.

Volume turned to MAX for almost no sound from record player


You will need to purchase small box that converts your phono magnetic cartridge level output to a higher line input level before it goes into the TV input jack. Radio Shack used to sell a small amp for about $20 that was made just for that purpose and was called a stereo pre-amplifier and was model number SPA-50 and it plugged into the standard wall outlet to get power. Back in the "old" days when phono magnetic cartridges first became popular some of the older home stereos had only the ceramic phono style inputs (or an aux. input) which were about the same input level as a tape input or aux. input (or TV input) and so you would have to use one of these adapters to boost the newer magnetic cartridge signal up to the same level as a ceramic cartridge in order to use a new style of phono. This will fix your problem if you can find one at Radio Shack or some other place, perhaps on the internet. Hope this helps you.
