Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver
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.
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.

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?
