No Volume For My Music Hall MMF-5 Turtable

For some reason I can barely get any volume from my Music Hall MMF-5 turntable. I'm running it with my Cambridge A300 Intergrated Amp. I have it connected correctly through the aux/phone connections, yet in order to barely hear anything I have to crank the amp all the way up.

Cambridge amps do not come fitted with the OPTIONAL phono preamp. At present you are plugging it into the AUX option hence why you get no/quiet rubbish sound. You can buy an external one or purchase the correct cambridge one to fit internally.

You will need to obtain a phono preamp to connect between the deck and the amplifier. I do not think this turntable is fitted with its own preamp - check the User Guide.

Music volume low when digitizing vinyls

The software itself should come with an sound imput level control. But if you can't find it or it's on full then there are ways round it. However it depends on how the turntable is connected to your computer. Most turntables require in an amp to have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to boost the level to that say of a tape. Rather than mess around sometimes it's better to get one of these pre-amps and have that between the turntable and the computer. Then the sound should be the same level as a tape signal. You will have to bypass that pre-amp if you are recording anything else such as tapes to your computer. Or you will get a noisy loud signal!
Just search for a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" on the web.

Music hall mmf 2 not working with pre amp

The pre-amp has failed. Since you can hear the signal with the deck plugged into the amp that proves the cartridge and deck are working.

No volume from turntable, even with volume turned to max, are ther internal fuses ?

You don't state which model the turntable is. Without this we are working blind. If the turntable has a built in amp then that will have failed. A blown fuse would shut down everything. If it has no built in amp and you have it connected to a separate amp, then you have either connected it to the wrong socket - it needs a phono socket - or if the amp doesn't have one you need a magnetic cartridge preamp.

I have a Music Hall MMf5 that I bought for my husband. i dont know how to connect it up to speakers so that we can actually use it...can someone help???

If it has RCA jacks (white and red jacks) coming from the unit it needs to be connected to the inputs of a stereo amplifier of receiver to produce sound. Most AM/FM receivers have inputs for phono in back. Just plug the cords into the inputs for phono and put your selection knob on your stereo to the phono setting.

Ambient sound is louder than the music

I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
Choose "Input".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

I hope this helps,

For some reason my volume control button on the side of my LG Lotus no longer functions to shut off my ringer, and I can't determine how to re-set it. I thought perhaps it was the keygaurd but it is off so...

Is there any chance that you have the music application running in the background? When the music app is running the side volume keys adjust volume of the music, not of the ringer - even when there is no music playing!

The two volume screens look nearly identical. Silly.

Receiver shut down only when using phono preamp

You may want to try putting an attenuater in the line with the RCA's to cut the input signal back just a little bit. So you are not driving the amp so hard with your preamp.
