Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable
I just bought my first turntable (a Sony LX250h), as I'm a music fanatic and decided to begin a record collection. With no speakers connected, the volume sound comes clear, but very, very quietly from my turntable, which I assume is the natural sound. When I connect the cords to my speakers, and turn my speakers up all the way, the volume is very low. Low enough that it can't be heard from more than 10 feet away.
From other problems I read, it looks like it may be one of 3 issues:
1. My speakers have a problem playing from turntables? The work very well for my computer, I doubt this is the problem.
2. The cartridge is out of place? I don't know where to find the cartridge, or how to adjust it. I've read that this turntable comes with the cartridge ready to go.
3. I need a phono preamp? I don't know what this is, but if it will fix the problem, I'll go find one.
Thanks in advance!
This turntable has a built in pre-amp, under the platter is a on-off switch. Turn it to "on".

You need a pre-smp and it sounds to me like a power amp too..the turntable needs connected to an amp (in the phono jacks because they sena a much stronger signal then say a dvd jack...also make sure you have the ground wire from the turntable connected to ground on amp
Hope this fixes ya!
