hello everybody from Dublin, Ireland..

please excuse my basic stuff questions but Im new at this game...
Just acquired a Sony PS 230 and Sony STR 6036 Amp/Receiver...2 initial questions please...

There are 3 cables coming out of the TT....the power cable, the cable that connects to the L and R socket in the Amp and another cable with blue/brown wire, could somebody tell whats that for..

Second Question is: Im not getting sound through one speaker...The balance knob/control is centred and I checked the speakers on an other system and they are both ok...

Any help on initially getting set up would be appreciated...

thanks from Dublin

Hi Welcome to the forums. The third wire is probably a ground wire. It is probably either not terminated or ends in some sort of flat open ended terminal. It would go to a binding post on the rear of the amplifier. This allows the metal portions of the turntable to act as an EMI shield.

Is the problem with sound on one channel only with the turntable or regardless of the signal source? Let us know and we can go from there.

Good listening
