INTERCHANGING TONEARM TUBES
WARNING: An incomplete understanding of this procedure could lead to permanent damage to the headshell,
your records, or the tonearm assembly.
NOTICE: Interchanging tonearm tubes unnecessarily may shorten the life of the tonearm tubes and/or
tonearm components.
This turntable features the world's only tonearm assembly capable of accommodating two different tonearm
tube styles: S-Shaped and Straight. The S-Shaped tube produces a higher signal to noise ratio with most
cartridge assemblies. The Straight tube is ideal for heavy back-cueing or scratching. Decide which tube to use
based on your mixing style.
1. Power off the turntable and any connected mixers, amplifiers or monitoring devices.
2. Remove the Cartridge from the tonearm tube that is currently installed on the tonearm tube by rotating the
locking collar counter clockwise.
3. Unclip the tonearm tube from the armrest.
4. Remove the tonearm tube by rotating the locking collar counter clockwise.
5. Insert the desired tonearm into the tonearm assembly with the screws FACING TOWARDS THE TURNTABLE
BODY.
6. Tighten the tonearm tube in place by rotating the inner collar clockwise.
WARNING: It is only necessary to tighten the tonearm tube lock collar until resistance is felt. Over tightening
the tonearm tube lock collar will damage the tonearm tube.
7. Reinstall the headshell and proceed to TONEARM SETUP.

INTERCHANGING TONEARM TUBES
TONE ARM SETUP
A properly adjusted tone arm and cartridge setup will minimize vinyl record wear and optimize the
performance of the turntable. Follow these simple steps for setting the tone arm on the turntable:
NOTE: In most cases, when using the S-Shaped tonearm tube, the additional S-Weight must be fastened to
the tonearm to achieve proper stylus pressure.Balancing the Tone Arm
1. Begin the balancing process by lifting the cue lever to the up position (or make sure that the stylus protector
is on the cartridge.)
2. Next, rotate the counterweight clockwise until it is in the complete forward position (NOTE: this is also the
maximum amount of pressure that can be applied to the cartridge.)
3. Now there should be a feeling of weight and resistance when the head shell is raised and lowered. Begin
rotating the counterweight counter-clockwise (away from the pivot point) until this weight and resistance
feeling is gone. If done properly, the tone arm will pivot with very little resistance back and forth indicating
that there is exactly 0 grams of stylus pressure.
4. With the counterweight in its new position further away from tone arm pivot point, grasp the scale ring of
the counter weight and rotate it until "0" is in the vertical position.
5. Finally, rotate the counterweight (and scale ring) clockwise (towards the pivot point) until the desired
amount of weight is reached. If the scale rotates 360 degrees beyond the zero point, the new scale ring
reading should be added to 3.5.
*The included head shell and cartridge assembly requires a minimum of 3 grams and no more than 5 grams
for optimum performance.
Setting the Anti-Skate Adjustment
In most cases, the Anti-Skate should be set to its minimum setting. Anti-Skate compensates for inward
tracking forces that occur with certain cartridges when the stylus nears the center of the record. If the
turntable is experiencing excessive skipping during back-cueing and scratching while nearing the center
spindle, try increasing the Anti-Skate in the increments indicated on the dial. Start by adding an increment of
1, test its performance, than increase it more, and so on.

CARTRIDGE SETUP
For Head Shell Mounted Cartridges:
The cartridge that comes with this turntable should be preinstalled on the head shell. If it isn't, please follow
the below instructions for installing a cartridge onto the head shell.
1. Position the head shell and the cartridge so that the four connector pins are visible. Make sure that the
stylus cover is installed to prevent damage to the stylus during installation.
2. Prepare to connect the cartridge to the head shell using the green, red, blue and white connector wires.
3. Starting with the upper left pin and going clockwise install the white, the red, the green and finally the blue
wires to the connector pins. Be careful not to bend the metal clips on the end of the wires. These metal
connectors should never make contact with one another.
4. Using the screws and bolts that are included with the cartridge, loosely fasten the cartridge to the head shell
body.
5. Once temporarily fastened, position the cartridge so that both screws are aligned with the optimum position
mark on the Head shell (Numark HS 1 Head shell and Numark Cartridges only.) Moving the both screws to a
mark away from the optimum position indicated on the head shell may increase or decrease performance
depending on the cartridge used. For safe vinyl record treatment, the screws should always be aligned
perpendicular to the head shell (any angle may increase "record burn.")
6. Once the cartridge is positioned correctly, secure the cartridge to the head shell by tightening the mounting
screws.
For Integrated Head Shell Cartridges (Numark CS-1, CC-1, CX-1, etc.)
7. Align the pin on the rear of the Cartridge Assembly so that it is in a vertical position and insert it into the
tone arm lock nut.
8. Secure the cartridge to the tone arm by turning the tone arm lock nut clockwise until the head shell feels
secure and does not wobble to the left or right. WARNING: Over tightening the tone arm lock nut may result in
permanent damage to the tone arm or the cartridge.
9. Remove the stylus protector before playback.

OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES
Please read these precautionary notes to insure a complete understanding and long life of this DJ turntable.
1. Unnecessarily removing the platter may cause damage to the magnet mounting structure, the motor or the
platter resulting in undesired performance. The turntable should ALWAYS be powered off before the turntable
platter is removed for any reason.
2. Repeatedly "interchanging" tonearm tubes may cause premature wear to components of the tonearm
assembly or the tonearm tubes. Interchange tubes only on an "as needed" basis.
3. Turning off the turntable while the output is set to LINE level or while the SPDIF output is in use will result in
an absence of audio. Keep this in mind during use - if the "motor off" effect is desired effect, it is
recommended that the BRAKE MOTOR CONTROL be adjusted.
4. Do not attempt to adjust or tighten any tonearm components. Undesirable performance may be a result of
an improperly adjusted tonearm or worn cartridge.
5. Never interchange tonearm tubes or the PITCH FADER and BUTTON CARTRIDGES while the turntable is
powered on.
6. Any attempt to "customize" the TT500 turntable beyond interchanging the tonearm tubes and fader/button
cartridges is not recommended and may result in PERMENANT DAMAGE to the turntable or a VOIDED
WARRANTY.
OPERATION
This turntable was designed to accommodate a variety of different mixing styles. Here are some general
operation guidelines to optimize the performance of the turntable.
1. Do not place the turntable on or near a speaker or subwoofer. This may cause unwanted noise depending on
the environment conditions.
2. ALWAYS use the included Slip Mat during record playback. This Slip Mat was designed to reduce friction
between the platter and the record to allow for rapid back cueing and efficient scratch play.
3. Using the tone arm Cue System may prevent damage to your stylus. First lift the Cue Lever, then position
the tone arm over the desired groove of the record, and finally lower the Cue Lever to slowly drop the tone
arm onto the record.
4. Always secure the tone arm using the Arm Clip when not in use. This can prevent stylus damage and
accidental tone arm engagement.
5. To reduce needle skipping, follow the guidelines in the Tone Arm Setup section of this manual. Too much
weight on a cartridge may cause erratic skipping or stylus damage.
Another guideline that may reduce skipping is back cueing and adjusting playback tempo by applying pressure
towards the center of the record near the spindle as indicated below.
Skipping induce by rapid cueing or scratching may be reduce by applying inward pressure to the side of the
record instead of applying pressure down on the record (see diagram below.)
