Hello,
you need a RIAA peamp, because level and impedance are too diferents, if you don't have one, you will have to put more volume and get many noise in your case !

How do I connect my pioneer pl555z turntable to my new pioneer receiver.


It helps to know the details of BOTH entities when an inter-connection is involved.

Most 'new' receivers don't support old-school TT's.

"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 and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.

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.

How to hook up a turntable to a pioneer vsx-1019


receivers with a PHONO input can connect a turntable easily by just connecting the white and red stereo audio cables from the turntable to the phono inputs on the receiver. receivers without a PHONO input can still connect a turntable by using a phono-preamp whose output can connect to any analog stereo input on the receiver like CD or AUX.

I plugged my gemini pt-1000 turntable into the aux in the back of my stereo, but the sound is very low. Do I need a preamp?


If the amp doesn't have an imput marked phono, or deck, or turntable, the answer is yes. Search for a 'magnetic cartridge pre-amp' via google.

I am trying to record my old vinyl records to a CD. I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling...


Complex? Traditional turntables need PHONO preamaplifiers (in receivers) to PREAMPLIFY the minute signal they produce to something useable.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver 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.

Just curious, priorto the arrival of the RCD, how did you play or listen to the turntable?

My turntable won't work with the pioneer vsx-d608


Your old-school un-preamplified turntable requires an outboard Phono Preamp (*) to PRE-amplify and RIAA-equalize the tiny voltage signal produced by the phono cartridge. It will not work on any Line Level input like Aux or CD. What you will hear is a useless, barely audible, tinny playback.

I have tried too hook up my Gemini XL-500, to a Sony Digital Audio DTS discrete 6ch Amp , but get very low volume, tuner & cd dvd, volume is fine, does this have anything to do with the ground?...


No! The amp must have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to increase the sound level. If it has one it will say "phono" on the inputs on the back and have a "turntable" - or "Phono" selector switch. If it doesn't have one (many new surround amps don't) you won't be able to play it properly untill you get a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp". This will make the signal loud enough to be used on a normal aux imput of the Sony.

How do i hook up my i pod up to a mcm530 philips stereo system?


If it has an aux imput all you need to do is get a dock (which will keep the battery charged while playing) or the cheaper way - by connecting a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono plugs- lead. The 3.5mm plug goes into the headphone output of the I-Pod and the RCA's go into the Aux imput of the Philips.
It can be any imput on the amp (except phono) such as CD or tape.
You will find that you need to turn up the volume on the I-Pod to hear the sound.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

C. Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;

Good luck with your project.
