Battery Powered Vinyl Turntable Help Answered
I recently purchased a Bush MTT1 vinyl turntable which I am trying to make portable so I can play records through a set of I-pod speakers on the move. I thought this was a good one to ‘mod’ as it has a built in preamp (one less thing to carry!). First of all I have swapped/removed the red/white output sockets and replaced them with a 3.5mm headphone jack so the speakers can easily be attached – this works great! The part I am stuck with is the turntable needs to be plugged in to the wall…and I want it to be battery powered. I have opened up the turntable and inside the wire from the wall goes straight into a transformer, then the transformer is wired to the turntable circuit with two blue wires. The transformer reads – 05/45 on the side, if that’s any use.
All I need to know is what voltage is being supplied to the turntable by the transformer so I can remove it and put batteries in its place, how can I do this?, can it be done?
Also wear the transformer connects to the circuit it says 'AC IN'. Can i just connect batteries?
Please see attached photos for anymore information, thanks!
