Technics SL-B2 not cooperating with R4450W Soundesign receiver

So i've had some back luck trying to find a cooperative record player in the past couple months. the first replacement system was this unit built into a cabinet i found at a second hand shop. it came with all the manuals & is apparently from JC Penny [early 80's i would assume.]

the motor is a bit off, and plays at probably 38 instead of 33rpm.
now you're probably wondering 'why would this fool purchase a record player that plays fast?' ... i dug through their stack of records & the only thing i recognised from the pile was Rush.
the 45 setting is better, but now i'm set on replacing the record player in the unit. i'd like to keep the receiver, as that seems to work just fine.

i recently came across a Technics SL-B2 at Goodwill for $10 & i absolutely caved.
i've already replaced the busted needle with an Audio-Technica AT90.
the most obvious issue with is is that it needs a belt...that's easy.
the less obvious issue with it is that i am having some issues getting it to hook up to the receiver.

the receiver is by Soundesign with the model number R4450W.

at this point i will take any sort of advice!

Hey , Why not try using the cartridge from the old recordplayer on your Technics ? This should solve your problem with no money to invest.
Good Luck.

I would suspect that the receiver has only an AUX input. If that is the case, you will need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These are readily available for about $20 or so. This will boost the low signal level from the table to line level which is what the AUX input is expecting.

How should you connect your CD player to your av amp (both Technics) using an fibre optical cable?


It sounds like your CD player does not have an optical audio output. If so, you will need to get a "Digital to Analog Audio Converter". You can find them on eBay or Amazon for as little as $10. Connect your CD player's analog/RCA-style stereo cables to the converter.Then connect the converter to your receiver with a single optical cable. 6_20_2016_11_27_39_am.png

Its time to replace the optical unit ( lens ) of the CD player. Brace yourself the unit on some of those old players can cost more than a new DVD player.

Connecting a Technics SL-BD20D turntable to a Yamaha RX-V463 Rece


After further research, I learned that I need to plug the turntable into a preamp before plugging it into my newer receiver. As with cassettes, record players are fading away. I ordered a preamp, but won't be able to experience success until it arrives.
