    Turntables

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi, is there anyone here with a good knowledge of turntables? I have dusted down my dads old Sony PS-T22 and bought a new stylus for it but I suspect the old cartridges and stylus's are inferior to todays? What makes/models combinations of cartridge and stylus would you recommend?

    Cheers.

    isopropyl for cleaning vinyl?

    I bought a cheap set for vinyl care, and the liquid leaves a residue which clogs the needle. would iso be safe or would it melt it?

    Whatever you do dont go buy a head/needle from Guitar Center. They have some cheap a$$ DJ stylus's and they SUCK....Honestly Ive found turntables from25-30 years ago that sound better and pickup less rumble...

    Do not use straight isopropyl. There are quite a few home-made solution recipes available on the net. Most are something like 10% isopropyl, 90% distilled water, and 1 drop of a surfactant (wetting agent)--I use All Clear laundry detergant.

    I would suggest looking up some recipes. I don't want to be responsible if you're not happy.

    I've used this product on my very old large collection of vinyl over the last few days with excellent results

    It's not the same as the D4 that was available years ago.
