Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Connecting speakers to amplifier for complete beginner

Like the message that brought me to your site, I want to play old vynyl records and bought a record player, amplifier NAD C315BEE and two speakers. In the distant past, I owned an all in one system so I have never had all these pieces before.
I have connected the record player (via USB) to my PC to upload music successfully, so there is nothing wrong with it.
I have all the lights coming on on the amplifier so I assume there is nothing wrong with it.
I bought on advice of the shop where I bought all the gear, two lengths of heavy duty cable to connect the speakers and did so as they suggested (also following the bare wire instructions in the NAD instructions. (It is a bit like doing a plug, so I do not think I have done it wrong..)
However, no sound.
I note in the instructions that I am supposed to connect speaker R+ and R- to R+ and R- on the amplifier but I have only one piece of cable and the two points on the amplifier, while close, are not linked together as on the speakers.
Likewise, I have been able to connect the left speaker only to the L+ connection on the amplifier.
Is this the problem and is the solution to go back and buy more cable please?
Or have I completely misunderstood?

    I followed the advice and cut the longer cable in two to connect the right speaker and put on a record and nothing..........

    the left cable is not long enough for me to cut, but surely the system should produce sound through one speaker please? (It would not be balanced, but at least I would know I had got the thing going..)

    what next please?



    Also, I clicked through to say what I have put in the comment, but kept on being told that the amp details were invalid.



    it is a NAD C315BEE and the speakers are iQ 55E



    thanks

    I gave up and went back to the shop and they explained that the cable I had bought should be split to create two cables to link up with the red and black (+ and -) points. The cable is white with one narrow black stripe and is in the form of two plastic tubes molded together. When I split the end part and put the bit with the black stripe into the black point and the all white one into the red, it WORKED

Sir,

U do it correct. Buy a different cable and connect it. Buy a Fiber Optical Toslink Digital Audio Optic Interface 6 Foot cable. It is inexpensive and works fine.

You will have to use two cables for the same. So you need to buy two more cables.

    First of all unless all the speakers are connected properly to the amplifier the Input mode and setting will not work properly. Do you have the manual for your system?



    Thanks

    Yes each single cable will have two parts. So in total from the two cables your will get four ends.

    Its great to know that its working now.



    Thanks

HOW DO I SET UP MY KENWOOD MINIDISC RECORDER


A MiniDisc recorder would plug into your stereo system just like a regular old cassette recorder would. Line out from deck to line in/play on receiver/amplifier and Line In from deck to "record" / tape line out from amplifier/receiver.

Insert MiniDisc, select Source and you should be ready to hit 'Record' and then 'Play' to start recording.

Can Alba Rdvd 1000 record audi from vynyl record player through an amplifier


Any recording or playback device could not care less where the audio comes from if the connection and signal are compatible.

Your turntable WILL probably need a PHONO preamp between itself and any down-stream audio amplification.

Make sure that when the audio from the speaker cuts, the headphones are still working (try it several times). If this is correct the problem isn't at the preamp or driver tubes. Try to locate the wire that is connecting the speaker with the amplifier. There must be a bad connection at this cable or at the speaker's coil itself. Try hiting with a solid tool (the back of a screwdriver for example) the parts and the connections (not the tubes, just the mountings) while the amplifier is working in order to locate a loosing contact. Once you find it use a soldering gun to fix the connection.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Dear friend, Try connecting a pair of Headphones to the Headphone socket in the front of the TV. Do you get sound in both headphones? If yes, then it means that the Right speaker has become faulty. No sound in Right Headphone? Then the Audio Amplifier IC has to be replaced.

Lost the manual, can't get hooked up


You need to use an audio CDr, data or computer CDr's will not work in this machine. I don't know this specific machine, but usually you select the input, then 'rec type' eg manual,1 track or 1 disc,then press record to get into record pause,start your source,then press play on the unit to start recording. To finalize, you press finalize then either the play or rec button to start the finalize process.
