I received my stellar phono amp today and was looking forward to listening to some records.
Unfortunately, after having everything connected, there is a loud noise on the speakers after I unmuted the unit.
I then started the usual troubleshooting.
I set MC or MM to low gain.
I disconnected all cables from the stellar phono except the power cable and the 2 XLR3 cables.
Still the same. Then, I used a different pair of XLR cables.
I then connected the unit directly to the M700 Stellar power amps, also the same.
My DSJ works perfectly fine with the same connection path without any noise.
Any idea what else can be done?
Two other, unrelated questions.
Does the stellar phono need to stand horizontally or can I also turn it 180° ? Beside my 2 turntables, I do not have that much space on that desk.
Can I connect my MC turntable and a second MM turntable at the same time to the stellar phono? For sure, I would not try to listen to both at the same time but I also don’t want to disconnect and reconnect the cables from the turntable to the stellar phono when I want to listen to the other turntable.
