Hi, I'm new to the vinyl world (I've only been spinning for a few years). I just got a Sansui SR-525, and after setting it up, adjusting the counterweight, anti-skate...etc. I put on Sgt. Pepper's, and for some reason, on the first few songs, and them only, every time an "s" sound comes up, crackling and static follow it. At first I thought it was a dust problem, but after staring at the stylus for some time, that doesn't seem to be the case. I've also played around with the counterweight and anti-skate, but it all seems to be set up correctly. Any ideas/help would be appreciated.
I've slowly being replacing components from my original set-up (Cambridge Azur 640A, Rega Fono Mini, Project Debut III with Ortofon OM10 and Mordaunt Short MS908 floor standers) with vintage gear. The Debut III gave way to a Thorens 160 Mk1 which has recently got a Denon DL-110 installed. The Cambridge has been replaced with a Sansui AU-719 (not recapped yet, but has had a Deoxit treatment on all the pots and sounds pretty sweet). I'd now like to replace the speakers. The current ones do the job and certainly have the kick when the amp is cranked up that I enjoy (and compensate for the MC output of the Denon) but I do wonder if I could get even more out of vintage speakers. So, what vintage speakers would people recommend? I'm looking to spend no more then £300 and I'm in the UK. I mostly listen to rock and hip hop, but do have singer-songwriter types in there as well.
Brand new member to these boards, and I cannot believe I have never joined here before! So I have been into vinyl since college (about 10 years) and I have always just put most of my money into buying new records, so I have a pretty sweet collection at this point of ~200-300 both used and new. A combination of not having the money, and blowing money on records has always prevented me from building a nice stereo setup. Over the years I have gotten a few vintage pieces together to make my current setup for cheap (~$250): Marantz 6100 turntable - with pickering XV-15 cartridge (original 625E stylus) Sansui G5700 receiver Infinity RSa speakers All of these pieces are in good working order and have done a decent enough job for me for several years as a poor college/grad student, but I am now able to finally upgrade to something better. I never really paid any attention to what components would/should work together since I just bought what I could find at local shops. I am now looking for which component upgrade would give me the most benefit initially, and if any of these components are actually pretty decent and not worth upgrading. I am not really in any rush to upgrade everything all at once (it's been long enough with the current setup that I can take my time) so I would say I have about $750-$1000 budget per component stretched out over the entire upgrade process. I would ideally like to buy new and upgrade to a system that will last for a long while, and not need/want to be changed anytime soon. I listen mainly to rock from all eras and I also have a good amount of classical/jazz records that I was given. I like music to sound clean and straight forward with not too much added color to it. I like hearing what the artist intended without the stereo adding what it thinks it should sound like. Any help and opinions would be greatly appreciated with all of this.....time to put on another track now! -Z
