My setup is a Kenwood KR-6050, JVC QL-A5 turntable, and a pair of EPI 180's. I'm looking to buy a new needle and cartridge (I have cheap ones on currently). Will getting nicer needle and cartridges improve sound quality? What should I get?
Yes, put a new cartridge on it (the term "cartridge" includes the needle [also known as "stylus"]).
How nice do you want it to sound? $60 nice? Sumiko Oyster, or Ortofon OM-5E. Or others.
$100 nice? Ortofon Red, or Shure M97XE. or others.
$200 nice? Goldring 2100, or Denon DL-103. or others.
needledoctor.com is a good site for looking around.
I own the 2 M red by Ortofon i do like the sound for the $ money part @ a little over the 100 dollars i have it mounted on a Pro Ject Carbon
I do not like the feed back i get when planing my Vinly loud
Is their any fix other them moving the turntable ?
Ouch. Do whatever you can to move speakers and turntable away from each other. Make sure spkrs & tt are separate and not on same cabinet/table/whatever. Make sure Tt not on shaky foundation And not in a bassy corner
Dynavector 10x5 if u want to spend up to $450 on a cartridge
