Technics SL 2000

Hi,

I'm new hear in the forum. I just recently bought a pre-owned Technics SL 2000. I listened to an LP to try it out. I am hearing some sort of sound (like cooking a pop corn). My LP is in near mint/very good condition. What could be causing this sound??Do I need to replace the needle? And at the same time, i have to adjust the volume of my Amplifier to the 11 or 12 o'clock position to get my desired sound. Hope you can help me on this. Thank you in advance.

I have to set my volume control to that position, too, when playing records.
Do you have a phono preamp, built in or separate? Without one, the sound will be low, with heavy emphasis on the treble.

Ceers,
Alec

Thanks for the reply, I am currently using a Rotel RA 06SE which has a pre-amp out. Would you suggest having a pre-amp to improve the sound when using my turn table? I played another record, but this time, the sound is better. One thing that i noticed is that the sound (like cooking a pop corn) is still there. Would that be a problem on the stylus/cartridge?

Your records, and your stylus, must be clean.
Your amp does have a phono input, so that should be fine.

Cheers,
Alec
