Question about JVC Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I just picked up a used QL-A2 Direct Drive turntable. It sounded fine when I got it. But now that I got it home, and hooked up to my receiver (I tried two receivers, same problem with both), the volume is suuuuper low. Any suggestions?

Hi clausjones

You will need to have a Phono preamp connected in line if you are plugging it straight into a new millennium amp. the output of the turntable is about 100 times lower than a CD player, and need RIAA equalisation for it to sound any good. They don't include them anymore. Good thing is you can get an outboard preamp to do the job. Go here for units starting at $30

What is the stylus weight adjustment and tracking weight for jvc ql-a2 quartz auto return?


Balance the stylus, then calibrate the counterweight to 0. Then turn it counter clockwise to 2. For the antiskate knob, set to 2. Use the inner numbers for an elliptical stylus, use the outer numbers if you have spherical stylus. Hope that helps, feel free to ask about anything :)

I have a JVC QL-L20B turntable, hooked to receiver directly and plugged through cable, cannot get any sound except very faint from turntable itself, any suggestions.


SINCE I DON'T HAVE THE TURNTABLE IN FRONT OF ME AND NOT BEING FAMILIAR WITH THIS PARTICULAR TURNTABLE, I CAN GIVE AN EDUCATED GUESS. WITHOUT GETTING INTO THE CONFUSING ELECTRONIC SPECIFICS, ABOUT PREAMPS, ETC. REMOVE THE TURNTABLE PLATTER. UNDERNEATH IT, IF I'M CORRECT, THERE SHOULD BE A SLIDE SWITCH. IF THERE IS, SLIDE TO THE OTHER POSITION FROM WHERE IT IS CURRENTLY. PUT THE PLATTER BACK ON, TURN ON YOUR SYSTEM AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES YOUR PROBLEM. IF NOT, YOU MAY NEED TO BUY A PREAMP FOR YOUR TURNTABLE. HOPE THIS SUGGESTION HELPS

I've hooked up speakers to my PT 2410 turntable and i get no sound. Is there something missing or am I doing it wrong.


Speakers direct to a turntable? Was that in the manual? I'd think some electronics with amplifiers and volume controls might be useful.

Does my turntable need a new cartridge? I have a Technics SL DD22 which hasn't been used in a while. I hooked it up to a Bose receiver which works fine (hooked up an i pod to it before) & it plays...


The output from any regular turntable is far too low for most amplifiers to handle. You need to either run the output through a pre-amplifier first to bring the signal up to line output levels suitable for most recording devices and amplifiers or run it into an integrated amplifier which includes the pre-amp stage.

If your Bose receiver specifically includes a turntable input then it has a pre-amp built in, but as so few folks use turntables any more very few devices have the correct input. Pre-amps are still easy to obtain and can be very cheap, but cheap ones produce a noisy and unpleasant output which is magnified by the amplifier. If ever there's a choice to be made, spend the money on the pre-amp and go budget on the main amp.

I hope that I've saved you wasting money on something you didn't need. Please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Table does no rotate


If it is belt-driven the belt may be broken or fallen off.  Lift the turntable to check underneath.  There may be a spring clip near the center of the turntable that you have to remove to lift it.

Low to poor sound out of turntable


this problem is almost 1 of two things
A) the new stylus is not seated perfectly into the body of the cartridge. if you suspect this, email pics to turntableneedles (the at sign) comcast.net before pushing too hard on anything.
B) if the setup changed you might need a preamp to boost the signal if it is not hooked up to the phono input on the receiver.

EVERYTIME I PLAY A RECORD IT DRAGS TO PICK UP SPEED


Are you sure you have a Technics SL1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable? If so, then there is a major problem with the drive system. This can only be diagnosed and repaired by a qualified technician.

If your turntable is not the Techics SL1200MK2, and you have no idea what turntable you have, look at the model's label, if it says BELT DRIVE - this is the reason why it drags to pick up speed. If it says DIRECT DRIVE, then take it to a service center for repair.

Technics SD-L3 TURNTABLE


Does your receiver have a dedicated phono input? If not you'll need to use a preamp between the turntable and receiver. Your other turntable may have a preamp built in and the Technics not.

If this does not help, please post the brand and model of both your receiver and your other turntable.
