i'm very novice when it comes to record players, but my boyfriend loves music and has a great system in place, but his record player is almost unusable.
Current record player makes a loud hum whenever it is playing. we know it's not the mixer or speakers becuase it doesn't hum with other audio. he is pretty savvy, so i have to think he's checked the connections and cables. he seems to think it's the player.
i have two questions:
1. do you think there is something i can do/buy to repair the record player that he wouldn't have thought of?
2. if No to #1, what do you recommend for buying a new turntable? i've heard of Pro-ject and Rega. Anything I should think about when buying a new turntable?
thanks for any and all help!!
