I brought my father in laws Technic SL-1500 out of 25 year storage. The record sound terrible. Not being terribly familiar with this direct drive system - what do I need here? New needle and cartridge? Not sure what I should order to fix this. Thanks.
1st place to look is to make sure that what ever you have plugged it into has a real phono section.... If you plugged it into a normal input with RIAA, it will sound nasty.... If you have a phono section built in, then yes, next is to look at the cartridge and stylus. Tim
