I recently picked up a late 70s Technics SL-D3 turntable. My first turntable in 30 years. Initially I thought I would only play some thrift store records but now I find myself buying records for $25 a piece. I use the turntable for simple playback, mostly old jazz records.
Now I want to make sure that the adjustments/setting are correct. I don't know much about the equipment. Any advice/feedback would be appreciated.
The turntable manual listed the correct stylus pressure at 1.75 and the anti-skating at 1.75. The actual settings when I bought the turntable were 2.1 pressure and 1 for anti-skating.
I assume that the cartridge/stylus are not the original equipment. It is Audio Technica and I think the model starts with 'A'. I didn't want to unscrew the cartridge so I can't positively ID the cartridge yet. I took the picture below. Would anybody be able to Help me to identify the cartridge or suggest if any adjustments are needed. Thanks so much.Andreas
