Technics SL-QL5 moving magnet or moving coil

Post by tigerpaw153 » 22 Sep 2019 21:13

Hope someone can help.
I have a Denon S510BT receiver and I want to play my phono player through this unit, on line info says I will need a phono pre amp to do this but the lower priced unit does only the moving magnet cartridges, the other one does both magnet and moving coil.
my question is witch one of these cartridges does the SL-QL5 have and what is the cartridge ?

Hi and welcome to VE. The SL-QL5 is a linear tracking turntable that uses what is known as a 'P-mount' cartridge. Almost all p-mounts are moving magnet (MM) cartridges. The owner's manual found in the library here might mention exactly what cartridge was stock, but of course the one on yours may have been changed at some point. You should be able to look at the cartridge and see the brand/model.

Btw, that is a great little turntable =D>
