Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Its not the turntables

Its the connection that occurs at the output of the tone arm, which is usually balanced.

There are 5 connections- the 5th being ground. Because of this you can set up an old BSR or Dual with a balanced connection simply by changing out the interconnect cable.

The ground ties to the shield of both channels. At the output of the arm.

The arm is equipped with a 5-pin connection (like an SME arm) then this is really easy to deal with as you just plug in the new cable.
