I have two turntable (TT) TT 1 & TT 2. Both are Sony lateral tone arm. Both works great.

Whenever I clean the tip of the stylus of TT 1 with a soft brush, on the sound box there is a brushing sound.
If I power off TT 1 and clean the stylus tip, again on the sound box there is a brushing sound.

However on TT 2, when I clean the stylus tip (be the TT 2 is powered on or off), there is no brushing sound on the sound box.


I suspect there is a problem with TT 1.
What do you think ? What it could be ?

Let me know the problem with the TT 1

Highly appreciate your advise.

That is normal, one table may mute the output when the arm is at the rest, and another may not,
I NEVER NEVER brush the cartridge with the amplifier ON. You may damage your speakers that way.
