In this video, I explain some considerations when correctly setting up a turntable like the legendary Kenwood KD-600.
This particular KD-600 came to me very poorly set-up. The deck’s owner received some very bad advice from, of all people, Ortofon! I’m a big fan of Ortofon cartridges, but clearly not everyone there knows what they are talking about.
Anyway, I managed to get this deck set-up very nicely with a new Ortofon LH-4000 headshell and Ortofon Quintet Bronze MC cartridge. This is an excellent combination, very revealing and a decent, though not perfect match for this SME 3009.
Check out the other Kenwood KD-600 and KD-650 articles I’ve written, and enjoy the video!
