Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Getting occasional popping sound through speakers. My system consists of preamp, amp, turntable, tuner and cd player. It seems to happen when only using cd player. Hasn't happened when using only tuner or turntable.

Describe your system in greater detail. Does the preamp have a mechanical selector for the tuner/phono/CD or does it have a digital selector that you can operate with a remote? The problem might just be a dirty selector switch that need to be sprayed with Deoxit contact cleaner. It could also be bad cables so try swapping cables with the tuner.

I need help with volume and popping and cracking in the speakers. It's a new system and it's only plugged into my record player.


You are most likely going to need a preamp to go between your home theater and record player. The popping and hissing is usually a grounding issue. You will have to ground your system properly to get rid of this.

What kind of pre amp do i need to operate my parasound HCA-2205A high current power amp


Any preamp should work. A preamp goes into your system between the amp and the other components which plug into it- CD player, FM tuner, Turntable.....etc. It's takes their output signal, processes it as my be Volume, bass, treble... and then send a sufficient signal to the amp to drive the amp to power your speakers. As long as the preamp output is enough for your Amps input any will work as most will be.

Newer receivers that do not have a phono jack on the back require a preamp adapter between the turntable and amp to boost it before it gets amplified by the receiver.

Re: Technics HD51 home stereo system (amp, tuner, CD, and cassette player) - I'm told it needs a pre-amp in order to get any reasonable amount of sound out of lp's on the Linn Sonex LP12 turntable. At the...


The Amplifier must have a high impedance input for the turntable to be connected. Now most of the present day amplifiers do not have this input but only the regular aux input which is designed for a larger signal . But the turntable outputs is quite low and so it requires an amplification of high order. What you can do if you need to play the turntable is to have first a preamplifier with a high impedance which is available even inkit form and can be fitted on to your system. The preamp output can be shared into the input of the source selector maybe with a switch and you willl be able to fix two RCA sockets to accept the input of the phono. This will work fine provided the shielding is done well to avoid the high feedbacck to oascillate and cause noise, the premap must be housed in a shielded cabin. On the other hand you may have to buy a universal amplifier so that the phono input is present. Definetely nothing better than a designed input. So think and decide. hope I could help; Good day

I have a phono preamp hooked up to my Yamaha receiver for a turntable. My tall speaker tipped over and knicked the receiver and now my turntable will not produce any sound. Could this have blown the phon...


Let's figure out which hardware is failing. Connect the phono preamp to the CD or tuner input to see if it works there. It should. If it does, your receiver is at fault. Did the front panel controls get damaged?

How did the turntable fare in this accident? As a basic test of its ability to produce sound, hook it directly to the CD input and raise the volume slowly while playing an LP. If it's alive you'll hear a very weak, tinny sound, but I assume you know that or you wouldn't have a phono preamp in the first place and would probably be asking why the TT sounds so poor. :-)

I have been given an old JVC stereo for my son - its all separates though we wont be using the tape deck - anyway I just dont have a clue about what wire goes where and its driving me nuts!!!!!!! Is there...


You don't mention the model number, so this info is generic:
Think of it like water flowing, in one end and out the other. Each patch cord will run from the input to an output. The receiver or amplifier has inputs for the tuner, tape deck(s), turntable (sometimes high & low) and auxiliary, which could be TV or whatever other sound source you have, a cd player, e.g.
The outputs from the various sound players will go to the inputs on the receiver. The tape deck will also have an input - that's for the tape out from the receiver, which sends a signal of other sources to the tape for recording.
If there's a separate amp and preamp, the preamp output will be the amp input.
Use red on right, white on left, and be consistent.
Speaker wires should be connected in phase, i.e. make sure the striped side of the wire is always either plus or minus, but be consistent from speaker to speaker, and do the same on both ends of the connection, from amp(receiver) to speaker.
Here and here are a couple of links to helpful articles for more information.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Sonance 275 no getting sound to speakers


The Sonamp 275 has Signal LEDs on the front panel, above the Volume pots. If signal is present at the RCA inputs, the Signal LEDs will be blinking.
Most likely, there isn't any line level audio signal coming from the receiver. Hook RCAs to Tape Output or MD output and check system using the Tuner which is an analog signal.

No sound from turntable bought for our hi fi system


Hi,

Most if not all turntables would need to be connected to a PHONO INput which is high impedance with a high gain pre-amplifier stage. It will not work when connected to an AUX, CD or any line level inputs. Alternately, if your amp does not have any Phono Inputs, you can feed the turntable output to a preamp which can then be connected to any any line level inputs. An example may be found here or here. Additionally, there are some turntables with a built-in preamp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Record player works but no sound from speakers


I've had this happen before, and it is caused by your ground wire not being hooked up. Depending on the type and age of turntable, it will have an additional wire (the ground), that needs to be hooked up to either a screw or some sort of opening similar to your speaker wire hookup. That should take care of the problem. If you don't have a ground wire coming out of your turntable, I don't know how to help, other than figure out how to ground the turntable.
