I've had my iLoud micros for a while now. I recently bought an Audio Technica LP3XBT and tried to connect it to my iLoud Micros. It started producing this weird bassy vibrating sound whenever I play my records (whether connected thru wired or bluetooth).
I then connected my laptop and phone to check if the speakers were the problem, and they worked just fine.
I also have a Marshall Action III, which doesnt act up when I connect my turntable.
The problem really is when I connect both my iLouds and turntable.
Hope you can let me know what is going on and how to fix this. I'm really a noob at this.

You're probably getting mechanical/vibrational feedback from the speakers back into the turntable. Try moving the speakers off of the desk.

Back in the olden days, the difference between a good midrange turntable and an upper end model was having a subchassis (e.g. Dual 6xx vs. 7xx series). You found out the hard way why people put this much effort into vibration isolation. Putting the turntable onto a concrete slab supported by tennis balls should also work.

A vinyl rip done in silence will probably sound better than the same thing done in realtime for this reason.
