PL-88FS with modern HDMI Receiver

I have a Pioneer PL-88FS turntable and need to upgrade to an HDMI receiver. Does the PL-88FS have an internal preamp or will I need to purchase one to connect it to one of the audio inputs on a new receiver?

Hi...
If the new receiver doesnt have a specific input in back labeled "phono" , You WILL need a preamp for the phono. Then plug the preamp into the AUX or other available input

Just got this used turntable. It's in great shape. Hook it up but it isn't amplified loud enough. I have no ground wire. Help


Turntables, especially older ones, typically do not have preamplifler circuits, which are necessary to bring the output signal from the pickup cartridge to "line input" level for modern amplifiers. You will either need to buy a PHONO PREAMP unit (goes between the output of the turntable and the input of your receiver), or get an older receiver with a (MAGNETIC) PHONO input (internal magnetic cartridge preamplifier).

How to hook up a turntable to the Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver


Different cartridges put out various levels based upon their technology - make sure you are using the proper input for their output. A line level input 1V P-P won't work on most phono cartridges and will require a preamp to boost it to the higher level.
On a surround sound receiver, you should look for an unused input with RCA jacks and just use the Red and White leaving the Yellow/Video unused.

Pioneer turntable to Pioneer VSX 515 receiver


I'm not sure what you mean by "Wot", but I assume you mean that the receiver doesn't have a phono input, as most receivers now a days don't. You will need a phono preamp. Cost is under $25.00. It provides the amplification to be able to use any high level(CD, DVD, AUX, etc) input as well as the RIAA equalization you need to decode the record correctly. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

How can i use a pioneer PL-Z93 turntable with a pioneer A-717 amp?


Hi, there is no reason for the turntable not to work with your amp. This amp has 2 phono inputs. Moving magnet and moving coil. Your tt likely has a moving magnet cartridge fitted so connect via that input. Cheers John. styluscity.com

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 do i connect a pioneer pl-630 turntable to a pioneer vsx-1919ah receiver


Are you meaning it doesn't have a connection for a turntable, just aux connections etc?
Check if it has a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first, if it doesn't you can get one just put the words: magnetic cartridge pre-amp, into Google to find one. Once you get it that will plug into an aux socket and the turntable into that, so you can hear the sound.

The signal produced by a phono cartridge is much smaller than a standard Line Level component produces. That is why the clas of equipment called PREamplifiers existed. Besides PREamplifying it to a level the rest of the circuitry can use it also modifies the frequency curve according to the RIAA standard to produce a sonically flat output. Without either process applied you will have weak, tinny sound from a turntable.

The Pioneer VSX-D711, like most modern AV receivers, is not equipped with a Phono Preamp. If the connector doesn't SAY Phono is won't do Phono.
