Step 1: Unpack and Inspect

First of all, when you receive the HQKZ-006 vinyl turntable, open the box carefully. Make sure you turn off power before unpacking to prevent any power surprises. Check that the package contains all necessary parts, such as turntable, tonearm, cartridge, power cord, user manual, etc.

Step 2: Find the right location

Before assembling HQKZ-006, you need to choose a suitable location. The location should be flat, stable, and away from direct sunlight and moisture. The vinyl turntable should also be located not far from the audio equipment for easy connection.

Step 3: Assemble the Turntable

Next, you can start assembling the vinyl turntable itself. This usually involves the following steps:

a. Install the turntable platter: Put the turntable platter on the turntable unit with the drive belt and make sure the turntable can rotate smoothly.

b. Install the counterweight: Install the counterweight on the end of turntable tonearm and make sure it is in the correct position. Usually, the tonearm will have a mark indicating its correct mounting location.

c. Install the cartridge: Fix the cartridge on the tonearm. Please be careful not to damage the cartridge or tonearm.

Step 4: Connect power and audio equipment

Now you can connect the power cord and plug the HQKZ-006 vinyl turntable into a power outlet. Additionally, you will need to connect your audio device, usually via Bluetooth. Turn on the Bluetooth function of your vinyl turntable and search for and select HQKZ-006 on your audio device to establish a connection.

Step 5: Prepare the record pad

First, make sure your vinyl turntable is turned off. Next, gently place the record pad on the center of the turntable, making sure it is perfectly aligned with the turntable. Then, slowly close the turntable lid, making sure the record pad is flat and wrinkle-free so the record can spin evenly. Now that you have successfully placed the record pad on your turntable, you are ready to enjoy high-fidelity music.

Step 6: Prepare the vinyl record

Choose the vinyl record you want to play and make sure it's clean and dust-free. Gently place the record on the turntable and make sure it is accurately centered.

Step 7: Play music

Start the HQKZ-006 vinyl turntable and you can use the control panel or remote control to start and stop playing music. Music will be streamed from your vinyl records to connected speakers for high-fidelity sound quality.

Step 8: Adjust the sound quality

First, power on the turntable and ensure your record is playing. Next, locate the tonearm weight adjustment dial, usually found near the tonearm base. Turn the dial clockwise to increase the tracking force for more bass and stability, or counterclockwise to decrease it for a lighter touch and less bass. Be careful not to set it too heavy, as this can damage your records. Remember, the perfect sound quality is subjective and may vary based on your music, room acoustics, and personal taste.

Step 9: Enjoy the music

Now you can sit back, relax and enjoy the classic music experience brought by the HQKZ-006 vinyl turntable. Whether you're immersing yourself in old rock, blues, pop or classical music, this vinyl turntable will give you truly high-fidelity sound.

Assembling the HQKZ-006 vinyl turntable may take some time and care, but once you complete these steps, you'll be on your way to unparalleled musical enjoyment. I hope this blog post was helpful and gave you a better understanding of how to assemble and use this classic piece of audio equipment.
