Harmon Kardon SC20

This is an old stereo receiver with turntable built in.
Want to transfer LPs to CD.
Line out on back reads ''Tape OUT'' and Tape/Aux Amp - there are no other line outs except for two speakers. 
How do I get signal from phono into CD recorder? 
Any help would be most helpful. Thanks!

Easy, just use standard rca patch cables from the Tape Out jacks to the audio input jacks of the cd recorder.

WHERE DO I PLUG MY TURNTABLE INTO THE AVR 140


Phono inputs. Hopefully your receiver has them. If not, then try your aux inputs and hope that you do not have a magnetic cartridge. If you have the latter you will need to purchase a preamp and then feed its output into the receiver input.

How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

How do I hook up a turntable to a Harmon Kardon AVR receiver? Can't find correct inputs. Thanks


A 'generic' turntable and a 'generic' HK AVR?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

I want to connect my old Sony turntable to my Harmon Kardon AVR130 but whatever I do the volume is very low and I cannot get it working. Any idea how to solve this issue?


If your turntable is old, it probably does not have a built in amplifier. You might want to purchase a pre-amp to boost the signal a bit before it goes into the receiver.

Can you hoop up an external equalizer to the Harman Kardon AVR 30?


Any traditional old-school analog stereo processor can be used only with analog stereo sources.

If this receiver had any digital sources, you would eventually discover that activation of a Tape Loop disables digital sources. Just the same you CAN still use DSP on processed 2-channel audio.

It's should clearly marked on the back of the EQ where everything goes.

The Line IN and Line Out would go to any available Tape Loop on the receiver. Something that has Out's and In's. Obviously, Out's on one device go to In's on the next.

Harmon Kardon AVR 235 no sound


Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.

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.

Was using the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver and the front panel went out. .... screen display of the channel number, volume, or menu item does not work. ...


Try hooking up a yellow video wire from the back of the AVR 225 Monitor out. Should be at the end of the 7 or 8 yellow video ports on the back of the stereo. Next plug the other end into a yellow video in on a t.v. Get your remote, (Harmon/Kardon) and make sure the t.v. is on the correct video input and hit the OSD(on screen display) button on your harmon remote. There should be a setting in there that says VFD under ADVANCED menu option that allows for turning the front of your stereo lights on and off and dimming them half way also. OFF/HALF/FULL are the 3 options I believe.

If this doesnt solve it your display may have crapped out on you.
