Question about Teac AG-V1050 Receiver

1 Answer

New receiver, now no sound from turntable

We have a 1970 vintage Garrard turntable (Synchro-Lab 72B) which worked fine with our old receiver. We had to replace the receiver and have a Yamaha HTR-5830 AV receiver. We realize it's not high end. Our old one was Scott. However, we were told we just needed a pre-amp and it would work. We have tried three and no luck. We really want this to work. IF we need a pre-amp, which one, where and what are the specs we need. The ones we tried don't even tell you the range or whatever. Getting kind of confused over this. Don't want to just dumpt the turntable. We have an extensive record collection.

    What do you mean range or whatever.....

    Most ALL pre-amps conform to RIAA Equalization required to play records.

    The pre-amp goes btwn the outputs of the TT and the INPUT's of the Rec. It should have a MC-MM switch or HI-LOW switch.

    Plug the TT into the input of the preamp, and the outputs of the preamp into the "AUX", "CD", "TAPE IN" or "TAPE PLAY" Inputs.

    Put a record on and set up as necessary. Depending on how loud or Not loud you will have to adjust the switch.

    If no sound, check for dirty contacts on the Turntable, (there should be a connector plate underneath). Clean them all with De-Oxit. Also double check the stylus to make sure it's good, connections on the cartridge are tight.

    Find a neighbor with a separates set up and enlist him to help.

If you can identify the unit you will have to shop at places that sell vintage gear and it will cost a pretty penny for sure.

Sometimes you have to invert a changer and place on padded supports to get access to cartridge. Be sure to identify wire connections to the old cartridge before removal and keep track of cartridge mounting hardware so it doesn't get lost.

Background hum from speakers when turntable is turned on. Turntable is a Garrard Zero 100 and receiver is JVC RX 318. Hum is on even with no Lp on the table and is much louder if I wave my hand over the...

You need tro ground the Zero 100 to the amp frame. Also, you may want to reverse the plug in the outlet, if that is an option (Try to plug the turntable into the amp if possible) Keep trying different arrangements until you minimize the hummmmmm

Where the heck did you find a Garrard Zero 100? That turn table is at least 35 years old ... I have one, BTW and that is how I solved mu 60 cycle hummmmmm

I hope this helps you

Positive comments welcome

Thanks for using

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

Garrard turntable model 630s

There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,

My turntable works on old reciever and not new one

A traditional turntable only works on Phono (which contains special preamplification and equalization circuitry designed to raise the the level and flatten out the response of a phono cartridge).

After you do that, iIf you're not having hum problems I wouldn't worry about the ground. Or try it again on the FM Ground.

Hi Tim,

You probaably do not have a phono input on the digital surround amp you are using. Your sound is bad for 2 reasons
  1. Your Turn Table has low output level,about 100 times less than a CD player.
  2. You need RIAA equalisation to reduce the treble and boost the bass. This is for replaaying any modern vinyl or LP's
You can get an outboard preamp that matches the output of your T/T to suit the normal aux input on todays digital surround amp.
You can get one online from here. Or if you are keen build one from a circuit here

Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.

Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
