Need help with tonearm wiring


2016-03-18 4:09 am
I’ve been hunting down info on wiring a tonearm for the last 2 weeks and the more I read, the more I get confused. I need Help finding simple instructions—first time jitters you know.

I have a set of RCA cables that have been prewired to a conversion board. The set does NOT include a ground wire.

I have a Rega-style tonearm.

The cartridge is wired up (done that a couple dozen times over the past 40 years) and the lead wire is running through the arm tube. At the pivot end of the wire, there are left and right channel hot contacts, but the grounds for both channels has been twisted together. So… 1 left, 1 right, 1 ground.
The tonearm will be mounted on wood.
I know y’alls probably giggling at me, but that’s okay. I just want to get it right the first time.


Tried to post pics. How?
