Question

Why do my records play way faster than they should?

Both 33 and 45 records play way to fast, they were playing normally. Then after about four uses it started playing them fast.

This model has a speed adjustment (the slide bar on the right of the turntable.) Sounds like someone has been playing with that. Slide the bar back to the normal setting and the records will play at the correct speed. This bar is on there for DJs to get creative with vinyl to convert to audio files.

answer 2
Absolutely! You Mac will see the turntable as a sound card or microphone. It will be listed as "USB Audio Codec".
Then you can use any audio program to record the stream.

A good free program to use is Audacity. By default Audacity records .wav files but these can easily be converted to MP3 by installing the free Lame encoder. Directions to install Lame accompany the download of Audacity.

You can also use GarageBand. Simply select the turntable (USB Audio codec) as an instrument. Be sure to select the system (or other device) as an output or you won't be able to hear what you are recording.

I have also used GarageBand on my iPad to record songs from vinyl.

No. Why would you want built in speakers? To get the best sound possible you should connect it to your stereo & run it through a pair of quality speakers.

This unit does not have speakers or an amplifier. It does have a pre-amp built in but you will need to plug it into an amplifier of some sort or any device with RCA inputs.

I think that it does not work with speakers directly connected. It will take some amplification. you can use RCA cable to connect to a stereo, or use a stereo 1/8" jack to RCA adapter to connect to any kind of headphones, or computer speakers, small portable speakers, boombox, etc.

Try putting a penny on top of the arm above the needle. It used to work back when turntables were popular.

Oh, It would be best to send the unit to our repair center so that an authorized technician can check the turntable to resolve the issue. If the speed is not normal with 33 1/3 setting this is not a normal operation since setting the unit to 45 appears to be okay. You may set up service using the link below.
