It sounds as if you have acoustic feedback causing your "dddddddddd" sound. Isolating the turntable will help the problem if that is the case. Most turntables and cartridges require a ground wire. Not all will need the wire as the cartridge is grounded through the signal leads. If you are not hearing a 60Hz ground hum at all times, your table is OK concerning ground wires.
