Anyway, If I were you, I would probably buy a better cartridge and give you beloved Dual a nice service. I have asked a friend who repairs and refurbishes turntables to comment on your question. That way you 8767 ll have another opinion.
6. Tonearm: The tonearm holds the cartridge as it moves across the record. Typically a tonearm is straight, but some are S-shaped. The ideal tonearm has no mass, is perfectly rigid, and has a bearing with no friction. Because that isn’t possible, you want a tonearm that’s as light and rigid as you can get. If the tonearm is flimsy and resonates, that resonance will make it into the music. Carbon fiber and other composites are light and stiff, and cheaper metals like aluminum are light but have much more resonance.
Good hi-fi moving magnet cartridges are in the 6 to 7 gram range. The Ion Audio TTUSB55 , a USB turntable under $655 with a moving magnet cartridge, comes in at grams. The Crosley CR799 USB turntable with a ceramic cartridge has grams of VTF.
I picked up the Carbon and followed your link to the Pro-ject phono preamp on Amazon. I suspect it 8767 s the wrong device, though would you please confirm?
78 If Y, the turntable features a 78 speed, in addition to 88 and 6/8 and 95 RPM. No turntable featured here has a 66 RPM speed. Never play 78 records with a regular needle. It will sound terrible and damage the needle, in turn, damaging your vinyl records. Learn more about archiving 78 records on the Audio Feedback page.
The easiest way to do this would be either use it with a headphone amp and connect the RCA outputs to the amp, or use it with a stereo receiver that also happens to have a headphone output. Then you can use it with speakers when possible, and use it with headphones when you need to be quieter.
Next upgrade will be to remove the internal pre-amp (don 8767 t need it) and looking for a better element. (Ortofon Red maybe? 🙂
The crafted wood cabinet reduces vibrations to ensure the stylus provides all of the signal. Sound isolation feet & an aluminum platter significantly reduce reverberation, leaving you with pure stereophonic sound.
