Hooking up a turn table

I just recently bought my Yamaha receiver and hooked up my speakers, dvd, ect. I Just found an old Akai record player and can not figure out how to hook it up. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: hooking up a turn table

You should get a turntable adapter. They adjust the impedance so they can be plugged into a typical auxiliary input. Or you get a DJ mixer; most can do the same thing. I have an old Realistic Stereo mixer that does the job, and it has two phono inputs, as well as a Tape input. Very handy for this purpose. Go to Radio Shack if your budget is tight, but a pro DJ mixer would probably be the best solution for an audiophile.

Yamaha RX-V793 receiver shuts down when I turn up volume. Checked the speaker wires and they seem okay. I then hooked it up to an older DVD player I had and it works fine. Don't know if it's 5.1 bu

My first thought would be that when you moved the receiver to connect another DVD, the problem quit since the speaker wires moved. The best way to test would be to re connect the original unit the same way as the new unit and test again. If it still cuts out, disconnect the speaker wires and re test. if it still cuts out, try the new player and test again. if it does not cut out, there may be a problem with the old units audio output. Generally if its a problem with the receiver it would not matter what source you are using, even the tuner on the receiver, if there was a short in the receiver it would cut out. Let me know what your results are and I will help more if needed. Best of luck!

Where do I hook up the record player

That would depend on what type of outputs your record player has. If it only has RCA (white/black and red), simply choose one of the two RCA inputs. If it has optical or coaxial outputs, and you don't have another device you wish to use one of those, then those would be fine as well. Hope this helps!

I have a fisher ca-9335 integrated stereo amplifier thats hooked up to sanyo tp 1010 turn table and plays out of yamaha ns-70t speakers. a simple jvc cd player is also hooked up to the speakers but not to...

Something doesn't add up. You mention two connections to the speakers - CA-9335 and a "simple jvc cd player". Is that true? If so, you might want to UNconnect the CD from the speakers and run it into the receiver where it belongs. An amp isn't designed to share the load with another live device; or even have electrical contact with anything BUT speakers.

Did you actually find documentation that supports this hook-up? Or just winging it?

Zone 2 speakers only work with the tuner - no sound comes out when switched to DVD, Cable/SAT, ect. All of my other devices (DVD player, Satellite Receiver, ect.) run through the receiver. How do I get...


zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.

Hope this helps.

Pop from speakers when using dolby digital mode, works fine when not using any processing mode

Over 10 years old? Could be bad capacitors... if you have the expertise, you can try taking it apart and checking them with capacitance and ESR (equivalent series resistance) meters. Otherwise, you can try to see if any capacitors are exhibiting any "bowing" or leaking; if the top of the capacitor is bowed or puffed out - even slightly - or if there is a brown or white residue around the base of the capacitor, you can guarantee the capacitor is bad. Note that not all bad capacitors exhibit these physical attributes... but you can be sure a good capacitor won't.

If all of this sounds too complex, your only recourse will be to take it to a reputable electronics service shop.

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?

The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

Hook up

Karri, I do not have the photo of the back, but attached is a general wiring diagram for any Audio-video Home theater system. If you have a Home Theater Receiver, then hook it up as the diagram. If not, hook it up per the comments in the diagram. This is how I hooked up my ONKYO HT system with my SONY Combo DVD recorder and my Mitsubishi TV. One thing to note on Combos, is that the VCR Tape section will not play through the High Definition connections (HDMI, and Digital Audio). You have to use the older method of Audio-Video (AV) cables or the Co-axial antenna cables. You can ask more questions if there is any confusions. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
