    Cartridge upgrade, 2M Black, Hana SL?

    I misread... blue to SL, yes, definitely an improvement 👍🏻 Just making sure your kit can handle the upgrade. Does the technics have its original tone arm?

    Cartridge upgrade, 2M Black, Hana SL?

    I think the Ortofon is a pretty decent MM.. not got much experience with your phonostage so not sure the Hana would be a decent enough upgrade as they are similar in price and share a similar stylus. Its making sure your other kit can exploit the benefit of a decent upgrade say... £800-£1000 on cartridge. If you don’t want to upgrade them, I’m not sure the benefit of a change cartridge would be wise. I have a Hana btw

    Speaker noise when tapping turntable??

    Sounds like that you have done the best you can there 👍🏻 Other than what I said above, it’s difficult to know what to suggest without hearing the noise... phonostage? Gain set too high? If you have one...

    Speaker noise when tapping turntable??

    Firstly, a turntable is one big resonator if not properly supported or isolated... any tapping of the deck will feedback to the arm and inevitably the cartridge. This worsens when the volume is higher of course.. what deck is it and how do you isolate it and how far from the speakers is it?
