Klipsch R-15PM and Pro-Ject Klireftt Belt-Drive Audiophile Turntable

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I recieved the Klipsch R-15PM and Pro-Ject Klireftt Belt-Drive Audiophile Turntable 'plug and play' system yesterday and am having an issue with getting a clear sound when playing vinyl. It sounds quite muffled, particularly the lyrics. I know it's definately not the speakers as I have played other sources through the speakers and the speakers sound great. 

 

Anyone else have a similar set up with a similar issue? Any advice would be appreciated 🤓 

Thanks all!

No the issue isn't resolved... I've followed the set up instructions meticulously, which included having the switch set to phono on the speakers

 

i know it'll be something simple I just don't know what it is 😬

It sure does. Could it be the stylus needs an adjustment?

Yeah... All seems to be as is should. So frustrating considering it's sold as a Plug and Play!

normally these problems arrive when the phono cartridge type is not selected properly ----a)     --either MM or MC --------you must select the correct type if there is such an option ----

 

b)  a bad phono cartridge that has a defective cartridge or a bad stylus ----can cause these problems ----

 

c) the RCA cable is plugged  in the  correct ------red/white connectors at the rear of the speakers -  yes

 

d)  switch is on PHONO----power switch ON- yes

 

e)-  the 4 leading wires of the phono cartridge are well inserted in the headshell -   yes

b)  a bad phono cartridge that has a defective cartridge or a bad stylus ----can cause these problems ---- I might buy another one just in case to see if indeed this is the problem, at the very least to rule this issue out

 

c) the RCA cable is plugged  in the  correct ------red/white connectors at the rear of the speakers -  yes

 

d)  switch is on PHONO----power switch ON- yes

 

e)-  the 4 leading wires of the phono cartridge are well inserted in the headshell -   yes

 

Interesting thing is, it tends to get worse the further in the stylus gets to the centre, so a few songs into the album...

Oh really? You think it might be a dodgy turntable? I'm in Australia and had it shipped to me from Melbourne from a place called Digital Cinema. Should I contact them?

----------yes ---------100%  , this is a warranty problem ---

they might  troubleshoot the issue over the phone  , they will check all your remote settings first   ,  I hope they can determine whether it's  any of these 4 problems 

 

a ) settings   b) the turntable wiring  --------or  c)  the phono cartridge ------- or d) ,   the amp at the back of the speakers that has an issue in it's RCA phono connectors on the main board -----

Thank you everybody but the issue is now fixed! It was a cartridge issue for all of those that guesed this congratulations!!! I checked the alignment of the cartridge and although it was pretty good (was a little out) - I discovered the screws were LOOSE!!! So the cartridge was not being held in properly! 😳 Either came loose during transportation OR never screwed in properly during assembly 🤓
