Not sure on the answer to this, but I would recommend using a MM cartridge. Simply because of the cost involved in reproducing the proper sounds utilizing an MC cartridge, as well as the maintenance involved. In addition, the cost of an actual MC cartridge. Expect to spend about US$200 for an average one. For that kind of money, you can get a top of the line MM cartridge. Plus, they are hard to source, especially when the needles break.

Hope this helps some.

Jvc l-A31 turntable volume not very loud, is connected to a amp with phono inputs, wires are connected to the cartridge...


Hello Charles.

Maybe you use the wrong pickup system.
Normal Phono inputs are just for MM-Systems.
MC-System needs other Pre-Amp.
Some newer Amps have a switch (mostly near the Phono inp.) to select MM- or MC- system. (MM means Moving Magnet-Sys. and MC is Moving Coil-Sys)

Best Regrets Gue.

Does a Technics SL-J90 have a preamp?


This player does not have a pre amp. I'l send a link for the service manual, but don't try to change anything.
The element you use, is a MM or a MC (Moving Magnet or moving coil)
The MM gives about 100 times higher voltage, but still less than any modern amplifier can handle. The MC element only gives something between 0,2 and 1 mili volt.
Then if your amplifier does not have a RIAA correction, your preamp should have.
Just google around for MM and MC elements. My guess is you have the original MM element.

Do I need a preamp to a turntable


is the input you are using specifically for PHONO?
Are you using an MC cartridge, these require a 'more specialised' input stage to deal with MC cartridges...

Why can't i get my sony turntable to work with my pioneer vsx-d608 receiver


hi
does your receiver have phono in? if yes check at rear mm/mc switch. if not, you need a mm or mc adaptor between turntable and receivers line. mm is movingmagnet and mc is moving coil, guess your sony has moving coil pick-up. the sound signal has to be powered up to use standard auxiliary inputs. hope it helps a bit

Doe's the P-490 have a MM or Mc cartridge?


you can use either on your turntable provided your amplifier has a moving coil facility? if not your limited to moving magnet type? the moving coils are more expensive and generally better quality, but saying that some moving magnet type cartridges can cost over£100 so, unless you have a high end expensive hi fi i would go for the moving magnet?

WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP


The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

Phono input


If you mean Moving Magnet vs Moving Coil, they are different.

MM is the higher output of the two types so most Phono Preamps can deal with them.

Not knowing the specific receiver model, a direct answer to your second query is not possible. I would guess - YES.

"Since the coils are much smaller than those in the MM cartridge, the MC cartridge generates a much smaller signal."

see this great article where that originates...
