7 Caution: Do not lose the bearing.

(View from underneath the turntable chassis)

Turntable chassis

Center shaft hole

Bearing

Center shaft

There is a bearing located inside the center shaft hole in the turntable chassis. When the turntable leaves the factory, the center shaft hole is covered with tape to prevent the bearing from falling out. Sometimes after removing the tape, the bearing falls out when the turntable is turned over. If the center shaft is inserted when there is no bearing in the center shaft hole, the turntable will not rotate. Therefore, make sure that the bearing does not fall out of the center shaft hole when assembling the turntable.

Furthermore, if the turntable is disassembled for transportation etc. cover the center shaft hole with tape etc. to prevent the bearing from falling out.

7 Before using

Thoroughly remove dust or dirt from the stylus point and record.

If you play records when there is dirt/dust on the stylus, not only will the stylus have poor contact with the record causing poor sound quality, it will also increase the rate of wear of both the stylus and record. Gently remove dirt/dust by brushing with a soft tipped brush from the base of the stylus to the tip. Also wipe the record with a good quality record cleaner.

Install the turntable chassis and turntable so that they are level.

It is possible to adjust the height of the legs by rotating them. However, as there are only 3 legs, the height may not be adjustable in some cases.

In such cases, adjust the rack itself so that it is horizontal.

• About howling and hum

Howling occurs when sound from the speaker or vibration is transmitted to the player and is picked up by the cartridge again. If howling occurs when the volume is increased, check the positions of the speakers and turntable, and move them to locations where neither vibration nor sound is transmitted to the turntable. Hum noise occurs because of electromagnetic waves that are generated from other electronic devices. Check the position of other electronic devices that are near to the turntable, especially the amplifier. Also, hum or noise occurs if the ground is not connected correctly. Check that the ground wire is securely connected to the GND terminal on the amp/mixer.
