Question about Audio Players & Recorders
We have a 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:
On the front:
-Monitor 1 (on/off)
-Monitor 2 (on/off)
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.
