Hey guys, my video is 26 minutes long...its great for folks but wondering if we can come up with a short version on alignment? A quick link...I could make another video (been saying that for 6 months...LOL)

 

Something like these but with better pictures to walk someone through it ?

Question
How do you apply isolation spikes or pods or feet to your turntable?
Like double sided tape or felt or etc.

Thanks,

Blu Tack maybe.

 

Never tried, other than for my speakers to stands.

 

With cones I just placed whatever it was on them with nothing in between.

Is the Grado PH-1 phono pre-amp worth $400? I'm talking with someone who might sell it to me, and i sort of want it, it will complete my setup.

Ok so I have installed everything and of course this being my first turn table, I have ran into an issue.  It can play music and everything, but there is a constant buzzing/humming and especially so when I touch the turntable itself.. (the torearm, counterweight, antiskating etc) numerous parts of the turntable when touching creates even more humming.  This is probably a grounding problem right?  I have adjusting the ground wires many times, is there something else I should try??

Almost certainly. You have the ground wire from the turntable connected to your phono preamp?

Yes I do, there are two coming from my turntable, I should ground both right?  And they can be ground separately or on the same grounding lug?

Say what ?

 

Okay,l what table is thi s? I have NEVER heard of a turntable with 2 grounding wires. Just 1.

 

2 RCA's (1 RED Right, 1 WHITE left) and 1 ground wire.

 

So tell us more, post a picture, something :blink:

There are two ground wires?

post #2038 of 2591

It is the marantz tt-15s1.  One ground goes underneath connected to chassis and then another that is part of the RCA's.  Do i have something confused I am guessing haha

Does anyone have any info on the vpi classic companion? Do you think this would be a good starter unit?

Uh...YEAH...not even a question...but

 

1) What will you be playing it through? System

2) What cart and phono stage were you thinking to go with it ?

 

Very good choice
