A Little Help--Marantz 6100
« on: September 16, 2016, 06:05:30 PM »
I've had this turntable for quite a while but never really used it.  The belt was "melted" to the platter.  Got another belt and cleaned up the platter pretty good.  It plays but I'm not sure how to set up a few things, like the anti-skate and the counter-weight if there is one of this.  And the left channel is a bit weaker than the right.  Moving the wires ( off the cartridge ) around made it a bit better.  So, what do you think?  A few pics of the arm where the anti-skate is:

hope it all helps... peace OOK


It did help a lot.  Enlightening!

Thanks.



That's a nice looking turn table! Is it heavy? Looks like a really solid piece of gear.

Great recommendations by gormenghast on sites to check out for assistance on TT setup. If you're in need of more TT & record-spinning info I highly recommend visiting the Vinyl forum at Audio Asylum site. It's a very active forum & many of the regulars are super-knowledgable on all things TT & vinyl related. Here's the link: http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/vinyl/bbs.html

Happy listening!   ;D

OOK was the one who recommended the sites to get info on setting up the turntable.  It is a heavy piece compared to some.  I'll check out the link you shared, Paul.

I have that turntable, that manual should get you sorted.

I spent a good chunk of change getting it restored a few years ago and it has been wonderful. I run it with a Marantz 1030 amp.  Looks stunning (new wood finish) and sounds better.
I love you like a fat kid love cake
