Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
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.

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.
