    To the Marv:
    Thanks for the reply - what I did was: from the turntable to phono in jack on an older Sony receiver then tape out to aux in on the DE545. works well enough for now.

I am not really familar with this receiver but almost all phonograph must go into a phono in. Due to the fact that a phonograph does not have whats called a pre amplifier. generally the receivers have a phono in and that input has an more sensitive amplifier cicuit in the input. That is why if you plug it in to something else unless it has a preamplifier the sound will be real soft. I think Radio Shack sells a amplifier you plug the Phonograph into one side and the other side into the receiver then you can use any input you choose.

My home audio Phillips LX3700 receiver will play DVD input and radio input audio but will not play aux audio. I realize this is an old piece of equipment now, any help is welcomed! Thanks, Keagan


Depends on what you try to input on the AUX. If you try to connect an old record player it won't work. The AUX needs an input voltage of at least 0,18 V (180 mV) and can handle voltages up to 10 V. an old record player only gives a few mili volts, so it won't work.
If you have an old Tape deck, that you can use to test the AUX input.
I don't think inside your receiver is anything defect. like the switch, but in rare occasions that could be the problem too.

No input selection for phonograph. can i not play a turn-table through this thing?


Hello sir hi, good day. Phonograph are becomming obselete these days, and most electronics manufacturers now omit the phono input.

You can use your phonograph but you may need to buy a separate phono preamp or audio mixer to be fed on any line in input such as auxiliary or CD in.

When I hook up the RCA cables from the Phono to minimal volume


PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.

How to use aux input on Sigmatel audio 9227.


There are usb record players now. Phonograph recordings use an RIAA curve which is decoded in a stereo preamplifier using the "Phono" input. You can use the Preamp out if you have one on the preamp but you cannot go straight from the phonograph to the sound card because of the RIAA curve -it would sound horrible. You could also try using the headphone output of the preamp to the "Line in" on the computer.Steve Medley

I just turned my DVD player off when my STR-DE545 was still in DVD input mode and it came up LOCKED, maybe the input that you are using is not receiving a signal?

Sharp bursts of static


phono is the only input that uses a low level input (mag) I bet it has something to do with the input processor.
