So I'm just going to post in this thread because it exists, and I don't want to start more clutter.
As a lot of you know from my post in the Vinyl thread, I broke the white wire when installing my new cartridge.
I took it to the local shop (still 45 minutes away), and had him fix it.
He said he had to heat shrink the white wire back together.
Got it aligned, and got it home.
Sounds great, but after spinning one side of a record, the right channel of my speakers got started getting a hiss, which progressively got louder until it was blaring.
I made sure the grounds were tight (it's grounded to my Cambridge Azur preamp)
I switched the red and white RCA cables on the table, and had the same problem, only on the left speaker.
When I unplug BOTH the red and white ends from either the pre-amp OR the turntable, it kills the static.
When trying to fix the ground, I touched the red RCA to the ground, and my receiver shut off (auto protect I'm assuming). It did the same exact thing when I tried to make sure the leads were tight against the cartridge.
I can also hear bleed over static on other settings (when I'm watching TV for example).
Any suggestions would be awesome.
