Poor sound When I hook up my Pioneer PLX100 turntable to my Pioneer VSX D711 receiver, the sound quality is very poor and I have to raise the volume to a maximum to even hear it. I am using the AUX inputs.

Re: poor sound

You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input. The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack. I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you.

How can I connect an analog turntable to my Pioneer VSX-D710S? Also, do I need a turntable with a built in pre-amp?

According to the specs there aren't any phono inputs which would have their own preamp. Everything else is line level so I'm pretty sure you'll need a preamp either between the turntable and one of the line level inputs or built into the turntable.

No sound of voice, only surround sound

If you do not have a center channel speaker connected, then in the reciever setup menu for speakers, there should be a selection for center channel that says something like either yes or no. I'm guessing it says yes. Then you need to select "no" so that the circuitry will direct sound specified for the center channel to be reproduced through your front speakers.

Vsx-d711 sound problem

Sounds like ( no pun intended) poor speaker wire connections.
Check the wires at both ends and make sure theyre firmly attached.
If one speaker isnt connected , the amp will reset over n over

There's an integrated circuit that steers all the input signals thru.
That has crapped out.

The Sound is Gone.

The circuits that routes all the audio signals thru the amp has either died OR the power supply that runs that circuit has died.
Estimate to fix : $75-125
