    Grounding a Turntable Used w/PAS & ST-35?

    Post by pjsjr on Thu Mar 22, 2012 1:48 pm

    Hello, I've lurked around some and thank you all for the information that you share.

    I've been using a Thorens with my set up and it's internally grounded. I've changed to a Technics TT that has an external ground wire. Neither the PAS or the ST-35 have a grounding connection. What do I do to ground this turntable?

    Thanks in advance for you help. Preston

    Hi Preston,

    Probably the easiest thing to do would be to loosen one of the screws that mount the input jack board on the back of the PAS preamp and ground the end of the turntable ground wire under the screw. A neater solution would be to solder a spade lug on to the end of the ground wire and just slide the spade under one of the screws and tighten the screw back down.

    Thanks, Bob, the TT ground wire has a spade connector on now so I'll just attach it to a screw of the I/O board and be done. Much appreciate the speedy reply. Preston
