<--pictures of it
Ok so i found this turntable at this small antique shop, and the price on it was 25 but I asked for it for 15 and the guy didnt argue, so i dont know if that says anything about the shape its in, or if its even a good turntable to begin with.
Im new here so im not sure about these things.
Its seems to be working alright as of right now. This red and black cable thing is coming out of the back of it and i plugged those into the red and white auxiliary ports on the back of my stereo to see if it made any sound. It played very very quietly in the right speaker (red) but nothing came out of the left (black). Im assuming that is what a pre amp is for, so that it plays at normal volume?. Also there was a little bit of music coming from the turntable so i dont know what thats about.
The red and black cables are attached to the machine, and ive never really seen red and black cables before so should i find a pre amp that has red and black ports or what? (sorry if i dont know what im talking about)
Also there is a third wire coming from the back that seems to be ripped or broken. Im not sure what it does or did. You can see it in one of the pictures of me holding up the cables.
It has an audio technica cartridge, but I didn't ask how old it was so I guess I should get that replaced right?
I know they're just pictures but could anybody tell if there was anything that needed fixing or looking at from them?
If anybody has this turntable or knows about it or could just offer some assistance, i would really appreciate it.
sorry for noobing out!
