    Before Red and White became the typical standard, turntables often had black and grey RCA plugs, or black and white. I am trying to figure out which is which, in the case of my technics turntable with black and grey plugs. I'm assuming Grey is right. Is this correct?

    Thanks. This is what I was betting it was when I noticed a louder groud hum when I removed just the grey RCA plug. Also means that I have been listening to it wrong for some time now.

    I do have some superballs that I drilled holes into a while back for the bottom of my turntable. I never tried them out, I think I will try them today.

    On Dual turntables black is right & white is left.

    In the words of the almighty MC5, it's "black to comm".

    And the thread itself is TWELVE YEARS OLD!

    I can barely remember what I was doing twelve years ago.

    Except I think I had more money and the hair on my head was thicker.
