Bob,Red, Green = Right ChannelWhite, Blue = Left ChannelIf I understand what you're saying there appears to be a problem with that cartridge. Have you tried it on an other arm, & is it known to be a working cartridge? Does a different cartridge work on that arm? Again it may be a problem with the cartridge. With a DVM you may be able to check the cartridge pins for continuity. BTW, if this is a LOMC are you supplying enough gain to hear it???Jeff
Jeff, thank you very much. The reasoning being the color codes is very helpful, indeed.Here's some answers to your questions, and some more 'back story':- The table was just taken out of storage. Just before it was put into storage, it was played with the Shure cart and it sounded great. Now, not so much. It makes music, just a bit muffled sounding. I discovered that the tip of the needle is bent. I'm assuming that's a very presice angle and there's no way I can bend it back?- I have two carts. The Ortofon and a Shure. The Shure is the bent one. The Ortofon is the one that is inoperative. I do not have the ability to check it on another arm. I do have a DVOM. Would I be checking for "zero" between the left circuit terminals and same on the right? And I'd assume there should be no continuity between left and right channels?- The cart and headshell have different color codes, but knowing the logic behind the colors is most helpful.- I didn't know what LOMC was, but Google provided me with the definition. Despite knowing the definition, I'm not sure what I have. That's gonna take some research on my part. I hate being a noob. BobEDIT: I checked both carts, and there is no continuity between any of the four pins.
Define "Splatter".I think I'm experiencing it. Sometimes cymbals or hi-hats have a ssss to them and sound somewhat distorted / like there breaking up. Is that splatter
While it isn't quite up to the level of a NOS American made M91 stylus it does beat the Mexican versions and JICO sells the same stylus on their website for over $30 plus $10 in shipping. It does however need to track at 1.5 grams and not the .75-1.25 grams of the original.
