Usually record turntables are not amplified at all.
Also make sure you are using Line In (stereo) and not Mic In (Mono). And be sure the cable from the record player (turntable) is stereo also.
Check your audio settings in your pc software and make sure the Line In is not muted and is at the correct level for you to hear it. Some sound cards also allow the Line In to be Line level or Pre-Amped the signal from the turntable may need to be boosted. Let me know if this solves you problem or maybe I can help further.

Hi my new yamaha v373 amp needs a preamp to run a turntable so was going to use my previous onkyo txsv424 just wondering the best way to connect these two?


The turntable output cables go into the input of the magnetic cartridge preamp. The output ones go into an a tape in or aux on the Onkyo. I'm assuming that it doesn't have a input that says deck on it. Apart from getting some good quality interconnects between the devices it's a very simple thing to do.

Preamps, turntable and 24bit / 96kHz recording


You need an ADC ( analogue to digital converter) along with a phono preamp to restore the RIAA correction to the turntable output. Check out musicdirect dot com for some examples. Alpha Design Labs makes a great one that retails at $500.

Hello. Just bought a pl990 and trying to connect it to creative speakers for the meantime. Im using a female rca plug but the sound wont come out in the speakers, nor is it working on my pyramat chair or...


The problem is that the output signal from a phono cartridge is very low. A turntable is meant to be plugged into a receiver or amplifier with a turntable input designed for that level. An auxiliary input on an amp is made for a higher "line-level" input. To use a turntable with a line-level input you need a preamp (here's a typical model at Amazon.com) to boost the signal to the amplifier. Then you'll be able to play your records and hear them.

Purchased stanton T.52 Turntable. hooked it up to stereo but volume is very very low. cannot find line / phono switch if there is one on this model.


The only output from the turntable is the low-level signal from the cartridge. Most likely, the receiver you've hooked it to doesn't have a phono input. Many receivers today don't come with one, and if you connect the turntable to a line-level input you get either very low volume or none at all, depending on the cartridge. What you'll need is a turntable preamp to boost the output to line level so the receiver will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp, available online and in some stores. You can also find preamps online (here's one at Amazon). With the preamp connected you can use any free input on the receiver.

Connecting NAD 2600a amp.


Never connect incompatible connections. Speaker outputs are for speaker inputs. Period.

The various inputs on this or most any amp are for Line Level signal with the exception of anything explicitly labeled "PHONO" as that would be for a non-preamplified turntable ONLY.

From what I have found online, Lab-In was a NAD feature that restored the frequencies that were rolled off when turntables were being used in the (assumed) preamplifier that fed this amp.

http://web.295.ca/~peak//audio.html

"NAD belleived at the time that practical PHONO stages and the preamp and power amplifier stages be rolled off at subsonic frequencies to prevent subsonic wow and flutter from Turntables and supersonic frequencies (EMI/RF/Radio) signals from getting into the system in the first place. Their notion was that if your ears cannot physically hear it, then why amplify it. For the PURIST, there were a set of LAB IN amplifier inputs with more extended response called "LAB IN" inputs"

Use the Lab In's UNLESS you have a turntable source.

Funny thing about analog to digital recording without a preamp. You will record a signal, but that signal might be below the level of human audibility, if the line levels are left at the level that left the turntable, given the absence of a PREAMP.

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.
