My old turntable is faltering, probably from old age. Does anyone know of a place online in Canada (Quebec, preferably) where I can order a new one? Thanks for your time.

Depends what you're looking for. You might not even need to go online actually; I bought my turntable new for around $80 at A&B Sound in Winnipeg a couple of years ago; when I was there over the holidays it looked like they still carried them. If you're planning to do anything more than just playing records, you can expect to pay considerably more, of course, and that store had some of the high end ones as well. So you probably can find somewhere that carries them- if Winnipeg has one, why shouldn't Montreal?

Radio Shack sells one:

So does Sears:

Ebay would also be a good source of used ones.

The problem with using turntables with newer equipment is that they need a pre-amp. Then, the pre-amp needs to be grounded to avoid an annoying hum. See dealer for details.

Here in Toronto, Bay Bloor Radio has a turntable clinic (I think it is Saturdays), or at least they used to. The servicing was free, but you had to pay for any parts you needed. Perhaps where you are there is something similar?

Thanks for the info, but, no. I live in an isolated area - no roads, even, to the mainland.
(next year there's supposed to be construction of a bridge, finally, then a road will follow).
