5. Location Set Turntable

You need an overall observation to arrange turntable so that it is most reasonable. This may not sound like a big deal, but this work contributes to a more viable effect instead of simply placing the turntable on the shelf.

On the other hand, vibration is a visible phenomenon when turntable is active. In theory, vibration occurs when the needle moves through the grooves in the record and produces sound. The vibrations from the outside, therefore, will also blend into the signal, usually hiding in the form of noise. If the vibration exceeds the permissible level, it will cause the “needle to jump” and everything becomes a disaster. Therefore, music lovers need to put the turntable on a solid surface to eliminate generated noise, such as a coal disk shelf designed specifically for effective vibration reduction.

6. How To Upgrade The Components?

Regular system upgrades depend on the cost of the player. Accordingly, with the introductory models (entry-level), allow audiophiles to replace or adjust some components as follows:

The Platter
Platter is the part used to place the record directly. Considering the general principle, the heavier the platter opens up the vibration resistance better. Therefore, vinyl lovers can use Platter to improve vibration resistance.

Tonearm

Tonearm is a suspension device that exposes the disc of the disc to contact the vinyl surface. The quality of the disc needs to significantly affect the accuracy and stability of the rotating disc.

Stylus

Stylus functions to interact with grooves on LP, as well as bridging to reproduce realistic and detailed sound. Updating slylus is easy, done quite often by users.

Finally, music lovers need to consider choosing to buy a fully analog signal processor player in combination with an analog to digial converter or a built-in USB turntable to “digitize” vinyl music sources.
