For those of you more experienced in turntables, I find this puzzling. My Stanton T90 seemed to lose the right channel on occasions. But I found that tapping on top of the corner of turntable sometimes activate the right channel back on. Or rubbing one of the wire under the cartridge with a loud buzz feedback on right channel.

Is this a question of a loose wiring...to experience this periodic dropping of right channel. Except for this annoyance, I enjoyed using the Stanton T90 connected to my vintage Pioneer Stereo Receiver...ah, listening to my old LPs as well as recently bought LPs to replace those I gave away...duh me.

which wire?

Ha...the usual suspects...now need to figure out which one...am looking at a few threads over at audioasylum...may have to poke around the cartridge....:eek:

The wires that support the right channel on the cartridge (two) or the one from the TT to the receiver (one). :rolleyes:
Here's another suggestion... just for jollies, swap the TT cables at the receiver's phono inputs. See if the "problem" moves. Maybe the vintage Pioneer has an issue. ;)

Loose or corroded connector or connector-to-wire would be my guess.

Reseat all the connectors.

Try again.

I like to use anti-corrosion goo on my connections as a rule.
