What size belt do I need for my turntable?
Almost all turntables use belts that have lengths of 19.6″, 20.7″, 21.4″, 22.4, 23.6″, 25.0″, and 35.1″. There are a few assorted turntables that use a couple of other sizes. BUT. there is NO turntable ever made that uses a 23.2″, 24.75″ or 25.75″ belt.
What is better for a turntable belt or direct drive?
If you want high-quality sound, consistent playback and a classic design, consider picking up a belt drive record player. If, however, you value durability, long-term play options and ease of use, consider the direct drive turntable. Audiophiles debate about both selections frequently—and for good reason.
How often should you change belt on record player?
We recommend to replace the belt every year or at least every two years. This does not necessarily have something to do with how often you are using your turntable, because even if you do not play re- gularly, it can dry out. The platter bearing is important for the correct speed and overall lifetime of the turntable.
