Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I recently got an old Technics turntable, which is totally sweet, but it doesn't work that well. When I connect it to my receiver the sound is very, very low. I have to max out the volume on the receiver to hear anything, but when I do that I hear this sharp, electric buzz, which is probably not a good thing. It sounds like when a cable is loose, or like sometimes when you plug in a cable halfway into something.
Could this be due to old cables or maybe a difference between modern electric sources and the old ones or something? I'm pretty new to everything Hi-Fi.. This thing is probably 30 years old or something.
Sounds like the input to your hifi is a line level input.to use an old turntable you need a phono pre amp to make it work.try maplins or a local independent hifi shop.

"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.
