If you're up to it, remove the top cover of the case and look for any signs of burning or overheating (unplug first). It sounds very much like the Phono Preamp has gone.

SOURCE: Kenwood A-97 Sound gone poor

It sounds like the amplifier is going. I remember when I accidentaly crossed wires, the amp did the same thing, then one day it shut off. It wasn't the same amp, but it doesn't matter, it sounds like the amp is on its way out. :/

If you still have the warranty, I would have them take a look.

Stanton str-150 - poor sound from left deck


Just make sure all your connections are clean , your tt in horizontal and take a new record, set the azimututh/anti-skate right , use the channel of the deck which works correct if it doesn't you have to measure the voltage coming from the cable, since i don't believe it's the mixer. But pls describe a poor sound, that doesn't say a lot. My tables often make a poor crappy sound , with channels falling out, but that's due to dust on the vinyl and stylus(needle) or a poor connection with my sme connector and then i clean both. Does is crackle and move the rca cable when you're playing, often is that stuck , but if it's on both channels , which sometimes is hard to hear in a little room. It can't be the mixer, cause i told you to test it on the other, good soudinding mixer input. So then it can be your groundwire, There ain't much more. Good tonar, clean sme connector, clean record(take the needle from the right working table). Check if the pins in the sme connector move smoothly.
Goodluck

Loud buzz on both channels with new turntable and phono


The ground wire needs to be attached. The hum is a result of a bad ground.

I am getting extremely faint sound from the left channel while playing vinyl. I have swapped all wires and cables left to right and back and the problem remains the same. The only thing I haven't tried is...


If you switch the cables so the left channel plays into the right of the amp and the sound stays dead in the left channel of the amp it's not the cartridge that is at fault by your amp. Amps have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp built into them for turntables. This can go faulty, but won't effect any other device (CD etc). Most of these pre-amps are a single IC. Which will need to be replaced.

Plug the player in somewhere else besides the PHONO input.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it because old-school turntables require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

I imagine if you REALLY listened hard to the result you have you would find the bass is WAY too.

Google 'RIAA curve' to understand why.

When setting up a sound card to my m4 numark 3 channel mixer do i have the switch to phono or line


"PHONO" is ONLY for an old school turntable that would require a PHONO preamp, so that leaves, uh, LINE.

It's more than a matter of gain as Phono cartridges require special equalization to restore flatness to the sound recorded in a vinyl groove.

Stereo source material can actually sound pretty interesting when various DSP surround modes are applied to them.

Or you could seek out some multichannel music. Look on eBay for Super Audio CD's, DTS-CD's, Dual-Disc or DVD-Audio. Though these formats died on the retail battlefield they still can be found and will demonstrate some awesome capabilities of your receiver. I have about 100 of them.
