On the last two albums I've played when the songs were suppose to get louder the sound would become distorted and silenter then before. This only recently happened on two often played albums that I never had trouble with before. If you have any idea what happened or if one of my machines kicked the bucket please help.

I currently have:

Turntable- Stanton t.62 with the stylus it comes with

Preamp- Onkyo TX-15

Speakers - YORX speaker system S-13

I know it's not that great since most of it is second hand anyway, but the best I could do with my current funds.

Check to see if your stylus is dirty? How loud were you playing your system?

Are you sure your tonearm is properly balanced?

This happened to me once. The problem was that I bought a few used records and played them before I had the chance to clean them, and they made my stylus really dirty. Buy Last Stylus Cleaner, and hopefully it will fix the problem. If it doesn't fix it, at least you'll have a clean stylus.

I expect it will be the stylus as well.

 

After you clean it with alcohol (gin can work on the cheap) and it still distorts you will need to buy a new stylus

NO! You do not use alcohol on a stylus.

I re-balanced my tonearm and cleaned my stylus and everything seems to be working fine now, thank you for your help.
