Customer Question

Hi, I have a pair of stanton str8-80 turntables they are quite old. I can't get any signal through the phono out on both turntables. I have searched and i can't find a switch to go from digital output to phono output. Any Ideas? I have tried an internet search and found other people with the same problem however i'v not found an answer. Other than no sound the turntables switch on no problem.
Thanks.

The Line Out/Phono Out switch is under the platter. Lift the mat up and rotate the platter and you will see it.

Let me know if you need further help.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
The only switch under the platter is a red 230/115 switch for voltage europe/america.
Thanks

Hi again, I'm sorry for the delay. We have had a big snow event which kept me off line for a few days.

I'm not sure then if that one has a switch.

I am going to opt out of this question which will allow other experts to chime in.

Hold on.

Hi. I don't have the table to check but while researching this i found this post:

mentioning to remove the slipmat and look under the plater for the phono switch.

I don't think a switch is needed to have digital out (it should be always on). You will have a problem if your amp only have a line in and the tables are set to phono out (without a dual output level, a pre amp is needed for some). I would need the amp model number to see if it can take phono in.
