I think I've narrowed down a problem to my turntable, I get a background noise only on my right speaker when playing Vinyl, I've tried 2 different amps (sony, Rotel RA-921) and 2 set's of speakers (Sony, B&W DM302). same symptom on all setups !
if I set the amp to take audio from my PC, the speakers are perfect so I'm sure it's the Table.
It's not a cracking or a humming but just white noise, not really sure how to describe it better than that. I'm new to setting up a system.
I've grounded the turntable and I'm using pretty good quality cable with banana connectors, I only have a couple of old records to test at the moment, they might not even be stereo recordings I'm not certain (Glenn Miller) the background noise is less with one of the records on the right speaker but still distinctive especially when you throw balance from left to right.
I assume this is a connection issue, or poor grounding somewhere, should I dismantle the stylus / cartridge or could it be the interconnect between table and phono in on the Amp ? I picked up this table from Ebay so I need to assess if it's broken or just needs some adjustment.
any help would be appreciated
