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.
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?
