Sony Turntables | Drive Belts

Turntable Tuneup has everything you need to bring your Sony turntable up to speed and tuned up properly.  We also have a wide selection of turntable accessories like cartridge alignment tools, stylus force gauges, record brushes, silicone damping fluid and more.  Some of these items can be seen at the bottom of this page, or follow the menu bar for the complete selection.

Replacing the drive belt is usually all you need to do to restore proper speed and speed stability to your turntable.  Old belts will stretch out, wear and lose friction, resulting in slow speed, and noticeable wow and flutter during playback.  Unstable platter speed can also harm sound quality even when you can’t hear a noticeable variation in pitch.  Replacing the belt is easy; just remove the platter, and the new belt will fit snugly around the flange on its underside.  Then put the platter back in place and turn it until the motor spindle is visible through one of the holes in the platter.  Then, use a paperclip to pull the belt over the motor spindle, and you’re done!

Removing an idler wheel should be a very straightforward matter of pulling up on the hub of the disk while holding back against the spindle or its frame, though some are held in place with clips that are easily removed with a flat screwdriver. Visit the Idler Wheel Page for more information.

If your turntable is not listed, then it’s easy to determine the correct size of your belt by measuring the circumference of the original belt and deducting 3 to 5 percent.  If the original belt is missing or broken, you can measure the circumference of the belt drive flange on the underside of the platter, and deduct 2 to 3 percent.  All belt model numbers include the circumference in inches.  We have a few hundred different belt models in stock: flat, square cut and round o-rings.

Silicone Damping Fluid for Tonearm Cueing Mechanisms.

If the needle drops more quickly than you’d like when you drop the lever that raises and lowers the tonearm, then the damping fluid in the mechanism’s cylinder needs to be cleaned out and replaced.  Disassembly is straightforward: remove the tonearm rest, and then the cap on top of the cylinder.  Then you can pull the piston straight out, clean out the cylinder with a cotton swab, and add fresh fluid in small increments until original and proper operation is restored.  This thick damping fluid comes in a 10 cc syringe for easy application, and is a sufficient quantity to service several turntables.  It comes with complete instructions.  We have five different thicknesses of silicone in stock, to service monopivot damping wells and tonearm motion damping troughs.  Go to the silicone page for more options and information.

Phono Cartridge Alignment Tool for 7 Inch Records.

For collectors of 45 RPM Singles, it is best to have an extra headshell and cartridge that are set up for the different effective length and offset angle requirements of the narrow playing band of 7 inch records.  Playing a 7 inch record on a turntable aligned for 7 inch instead of 12 inch records will bring down the maximum angular error and the average angular error by a ratio of more than 6 to 1.

Stylus Force Gauge.

If your tonearm does not have a dial indicator on the counterweight for setting the tracking force (usually 1.5 grams), this handy stylus force gauge is essential for running your cartridge at the correct tracking weight.  Designed, manufactured and hand-calibrated in the USA, this force gauge is super-easy to use.  Just place the stylus inside the laser-etched line for the tracking force you desire.  The gauge has two small nubs on the bottom on which it pivots.  If the tracking force is too light, the far side will remain down.  If it’s too heavy, the stylus side of the gauge will bottom out.  If the stylus force is correct, the gauge will balance evenly on the two nubs.  It has etched lines for 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5 and 5 grams.

Carbon Fiber Record Brush.

A basic part of any record collector’s kit.  This brush has more than a million tiny conductive carbon fiber bristles which reach deep into the record grooves and cling to tiny dust particles.  Static charges hold the dust onto the bristles until they are swept off of the record; the brush can be cleaned off by rotating it in the frame; there is a tiny rib in the frame which will knock the dust off.  Do not touch the bristles with your fingers or use the brush in combination with any liquids.  The static cling which attracts dust to the brush works best when your body is electrically grounded; you should touch one hand to the turntable deckplate while using the other hand to sweep off the dust.  More cleaning supplies, including record cleaning fluid and cloths, and stylus cleaning kits, are available on the Cleaning Supplies Page.
