All you need is a 3.5mm Stereo Mini jack to two RCA jacks. Connect this to the line or speaker out of the laptop into anything but the phono input on your sony. The phono input will be over driven and sound bad and possibly damage something in the system. Try using any other unused device input on the receiver.

SOURCE: Hi, having a problem with

RCA cable. It's called RCA when carrying Line Level audio; Coaxial when carrying digital data.

Does the sub work when you run speaker setup? It's in the manual.

C370 faint crackling sound left channel


have you tried looking at your phono leads,turn volume down until it is low enough that you can still hear the music playing,give the phono leads a turn to see if its a loose connection.if not,try the right channel phono in the left channel to see if this fixes your problem.also you could do the same with your speaker leads and see if that solves the issue.maybe a bad connection is the cause?.it may also help to try and move your cd player away from your amplifier.it could also have been overdriven (played too loud for too long) on the night of the party,only you will know if this was the case or not.

Denon 2802 amp


Dear Armani,

You cannot put de leads from an MP3 player or your TV into the pre-amplified connection of your Denon,
the phono "stage" is a low input stage, your input from MP3, TV, CD, DVD oscasetteplayer is high output (a 5 to 10 times stronger signal)
Try every other stage like tape 1 or 2, this will work just fine,

succes

Connect subwoofer etc to nad 3020I stereo amplifier


Hi Info
You can use a 2 x male RCA to RCA female adaptor lead(what you need to ask for)  like this one 4d0dcde.jpg

use it to jumper your pre-out/main in connection on the rear, and connect an RCA lead to the Female socket on the adaptor lead. That will get you going. You can get them most places that sell electronic bits and peices. I am happy to answer any questionsa you may have 
regards robotek

Connecting my HP Pavillion DV9500 laptop to my Samsung PS-42Q96HD


Sound more like your problem is with the connection to the TV. Make sure the connection at the TV is to an 'input' connector and not 'output'. Also, from the TV menu, if you can select the output the laptop is using make sure the sound is stereo an not 5.1 or 7.1 or something to that effect. All other connections seem to be in good shape. Good luck.

Marantz PM-48 connecting to TV


look on the back of the TV and there should be L/R audio outputs (white & red), connect this to a spare input of your amp via a connecting lead eg. AUX or any other input except PHONO.

hope this helps.

No sound from turntable bought for our hi fi system


Hi,

Most if not all turntables would need to be connected to a PHONO INput which is high impedance with a high gain pre-amplifier stage. It will not work when connected to an AUX, CD or any line level inputs. Alternately, if your amp does not have any Phono Inputs, you can feed the turntable output to a preamp which can then be connected to any any line level inputs. An example may be found here or here. Additionally, there are some turntables with a built-in preamp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Low Audio


You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.

This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.

Your 3 options are:

* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
