Hooking up Turntable to Yahama HTR-5660

I need some help - does anyone know how to hook up a turntable to the Yamaha HTR-5660. The FAQ at the Yahama site says to use a pre-amp and then hook it into the AUX input. But it appears all I have for audio inputs is a CD and MD-CDR. I've tried hooking it directly (without a preamp) into both those jacks without sucess. I'd like to know I can actually make it work before I buy a prem-amp. Any thoughts?

If Yamaha says that you need a phono pre-amp, you need it. it does not have to be a Yamaha pre-amp. just a generic pre-amp will fill the bill. Radio Shack or many places online have very reasonable(costwise) preamps.

You have to have a pre amp, or an old reciever with a phono input.

you dont have to use the aux input, the cd or md-cdr inputs will be fine, but you do need that preamp for that reciever

How to connect a turntable connected to a yamaha a450 stereo amplifier...can I attache the a450 to the htr-6130 ?


If the turntable is newer kind you can connect it in any Stereo input like CD, VCR , etc.

If the turntable is older model you can only connect it to PHONO input (if amp has one) and make sure earthing cable is connected on Amp

Remember input is only stereo (unless your model has digital input) and select sound effect eg Pro Logic for enhanced sound,

When watching cable tv we are not getting any sound from the speakers. We do get sound from all the speakers when watching a dvd or listen to the stereo. I have a Yamaha HTR 5660 receiver. All the cables...


Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

How do I connect a Akai AP207 turntable to my Yamaha HTR 5630 receiver???


If you want to connect the turntable all you do is get an audio cable white and red on the end. Then hook one end to the back of the reciever and the other end to the same connectors on the turntable. Make sure its output on the turntable and input on the reciever. Good luck...

"200 watt speaker" is meaningless. What brand and model? Be advised that stripping parts from an all-in-one audio package for redeployment with 'standard' audio components doesn't guarantee compatibility or safe function.

The amp has selectable impedance. See page 16.

When using tuner both speakers work but when using turntable one speaker is very low?


ONLY one channel low with a turntable?

Are you using a self-preamlified TT or an outboard phono preamp, because the HTR has no facility for direct attachment of an old-school TT.

It could be a turntable problem if you have phono preamplification most likely. Swap the two channels to prove it or not.

Try another input.

Connect a monitor to a yahama HTR 5660 receiver


"trying to connect multiple devices to a yamaha receiver if I am using an S video to connect the tv (monitor) to the receiver do I plug it into the monitor OUT s video or would it be Input not output?" Input on the Monitor from Video Out on the Yamaha.

"if I am only using the monitor for video and not sound do I still need to plug in the audio cords or do i leave them out " - Presumably the monitor doesn't have speakers or audio connections, so it's a non-issue. Your video sources should have audio routed to the receiver. If the monitor has speakers I would also send 2-channel analog audio to it from, say, the cable/satellite box, so you could hear the weather or other lo-fi video without turning on the Yamaha.

Can't seem to get any music from the turntable


Do you have the ground wire from the Turntable hooked up to the receivers ground terminal? it's a screw down silver nut and should be next to the Phono input. You are just lacking a ground from the turntable to the receiver. If you don't see a wire from the turntable, look around the chasis of the unit and you will fins it. Hope this helps

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.
