Right channel makes raspy noise when playing records
Hi all I have a Music Hall 5 TT with a Goldring cartridge. 6 months ago I replaced the stylus and it sounded great. yesterday I played brand new 180g vinyl and there was a scratching sound from the right channel. It made this sound on every record and if touch the TT with the stylus sitting on the record, (not rotating) it still makes the sound. I am pretty sure this is specific to the TT (tested the rest of the system and no problems. ) Do Cartriges degrade so suddenly ?
In addition to stringreen's suggestion, try giving the stylus a good cleaning. Might be something stuck on the side of the diamond tip giving you that odd sound on that right side only. Might also be a chipped stylus? Regards,
Reverse the wires on the cartridge . If the right channel is still scratching then you will know the problem is either the stylus or the cartridge. Did you try putting the old stylus back to see if that works?
