Record from turntable to computer via Pioneer SX-737 Receiver

I know this is a really old receiver. It is my husband's and am trying to record vinyl lps to my computer for him for Christmas. I have gotten the RC plugs to 1/8 plug. I have plugged it into several places on the back of the receiver and tried several different settings on the front of the receiver, but it appears that no sound is getting to the computer. Can anyone help me figure out what the settings are and where I am supposed to plug in the back to get the sound from the receiver to the computer. Thank you.

    The turntable is not a part of the receiver. It is plugged into the Phono plugs on the back of the receiver. Here are my choices:

    On the back of the receiver:

    Input

    Phono: input

    Aux: input

    Tape 1 Rec

    Tape 1 PB

    Tape 2 input

    Tape 2 input

    I apologize for the reduction of your rating. This is the first time for me on this forum. I thought that "Thanks for trying meant that I appreciated your effort but it did not solve my problem. I realized after reading your answer that I gave you too little information in the first post for you to be able to help with my problem. You have been very helpful and I appreciate it. I will go and try your new suggestions to see if it will help. I gave you a helpful rating this time, since I don't know if the problem is solved yet or not.



    Thank you.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Pls be informed that the model was not displayed, only the brand Pioneer.

Nonetheless and assuming that the turntable is built-in into the receiver, locate the REC out or LINE out at the rear of the receiver. Plug the RCA of the cable there while the 1/8 plugs into the AUX/LINE IN of the computer. Select PHONO in the receiver, in the computer, double click-on the speaker icon in the System Tray (clock). The speaker control window will open:

  • click on Options;
  • click on Properties;
  • tick/click Recording;
  • check Line in and/or Aux;
  • press on OK button;
  • adjust Aux/Line in setting to desired level.
It is of course necessary to likewise be running a recording program.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    A favor, due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my standing. Perhaps unknown to you, the rating that you initially gave "Thanks for Trying" actually brought my ratings down.

    To your concern...

    Input plug-ins:
    Phono (from the turntable) also normally aside from the 2 RCA cables, there would be a black ground wire.

    Tape 1
    Rec to AUX/LINE IN of computer

    On the front:
    Filter:
    Low (on) to reduce the rumble
    High (on) to reduce the hiss/scratches

    Rec Selector (you have to try all)
    Phono
    Source
    Duplicate
    -Tape
    -Monitor 1 (on)

    Loudness: (off) to reduce possibility of needle jumping

    Function:
    Phono

SOURCE: Connecting Pioneer SX-737 Receiver to computer problems

I've been recording LPs for over a year now.

I've got the turntable outputs plugged into the phono inputs on the receiver amp.

I'm taking the Y cord (pair of RCA connectors at one end, mini plug at other) from the Tape Record (these are what you'd use to send a signal to the tape deck for recording) on the amp to the "line in" on the sound card. You may want to look up the specs on your sound card to make certain that you've got the plug in the correct socket. There may be a "line in" and a "microphone" socket. Use the "line in"

What recording software are you using? Audacity is free and is ok. I'm using Goldwave (costs ~$50) and highly recommend it. MUCH better than any other package I've tried. Just google "goldwave" to find it.

The recording software should have an option for selecting / specifying a source. If you have "microphone" selected and the y cord going into the "line in" socket, yoiu won't get anything.

You need to hook it up to another analog input other than the phono input. The record player has a built in preamp, and the receiver's phono input has a separate preamp for non-amplified players. You cannot have the two hooked to each other.

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

I would like to set up my old Pioneer PL-514 turntable and my Pioneer SX-550 sterio reciever to listen to some old LPs. I seem to have lost the instructions and connection diagrams. Could you please...

The upper link is for the turntable, the lower is for the receiver. they want you to create an account tu dowlnload so just create an account with them. In my expierience turntables had hook upeads out the back(wires connected) that would hook to phono in on receiver and speakers would hook to receiver via speaker wires(may not be included) by pos and neg. The speaker wire usually either has a rib or a line or writing on on leg so you can identify which wire you would want to be pos or neg.

Yes, but it depends on your laptop hardware and software. We'd need to know a lot more about that side.

Output from Denon D-700?


Hi ...

If there's a tape monitor in/out on the D700,turn the tape monitor on and connect the "Play out" phono jacks on the 700 to the line-in on the computer. Spark up the turntable and you should be able to listen to the vinyl on the PC while recording.

Turntable


Hi Harpwailer,

I was unable to locate an owner's manual for VSX-D412 on the Pioneer website. I did find a VSX-D411, which I believe is very similar. Since there are no turntable jacks, I would try any set of open analog (RCA cable, like the ones that come out of your turntable and are probably red and white) jacks. Just plug the red cable into the red input jack, and the white into the white. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure that you use the input jacks, since some components (like tape decks) have input and output jacks, so that you can record to/from them.

This will work fine assuming that the output from your turntable is strong enough. Many turntables are designed to go through a pre-amp circuit; if this is the case with yours, you'll know it since the output volume will be very low, even when turned up very high. If this is the case, you'll need to purchase a pre-amp to put in the circuit between your turntable and the receiver, or else buy another turntable that outputs at a higher level (they can still be had rather inexpensively, surprisingly enough!). Also, you'll probably have a ground wire coming out from your turntable as well. You'll need to hook it to a chassis screw on the amp to prevent an electrical hum from being picked up and output through your speakers.

I hope this helps, and good luck listening to your vinyl. If you deem it appropriate, I would appreciate a rating on the help I have provided. Thanks!

Low volume from Akai turntable attached to Pioneer Surround Sound Receiver


If you receiver doesn't have phono inputs,you will need to buy an inline phono amplifier.Phono inputs have a built in amplifier,all others don't.Try Crutchfield.com.If they don't carry them,they will tell you who does.
