Many decks have pre amps or need preamps. hence the reason why you have distorted sound i would guess. you need the opposite of what you used. What record deck did you try?

Testimonial: "Thanks for the pre amp idea. it seems we need a turntable without this in order to play it through the phono input. for now sending the sony turntable through tape input seems to work"

    sorry should have noticed you already said what deck you used. That deck has a pre amp built in so i'd suggest you need one without you could always plug it into another input such as aux or tape it should work in those.

    we plugged the turntable into the tape input & now it sounds good. the pre amp suggestion seems to be correct. thanks

SOURCE: technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

SOURCE: trying to program my At&t Uverse remote to my

Sherwood Receiver/Amplifier 5027 Sherwood Receiver/Amplifier 5027

always press the mode key of the device they want to control before pressing any other key

Power on the device

  1. Press and hold the appropriate Mode key (TV, DVD or AUX) on the remote control.
  2. Without releasing the chosen Mode key, press and hold the OK key simultaneously.
  3. Release both the Mode key and the OK key at the same time.
    All the Mode keys should flash twice.
    1. Enter the four digit setup code by pressing the number keys (0-9) on the remote control.
    2. The Mode key will flash three times indicating correct entry and return to normal operation.
    • When an invalid code is entered, the selected Mode key will give a long flash to indicate that the Member has not entered the setup code correctly. Start over beginning at step 3.
    • Should the remote control time out before the Member completes the code setup, they will need to start over.
    1. Point the remote control at the programmed device and press the Power key once.
    2. The device should turn off.
    • If it does not turn off, repeat steps 2 through 6 trying each code for the brand until the correct code is found.
    1. Repeat steps 1 through 7 to program other devices if needed.
    2. Press the appropriate Mode key on the remote control to work with the selected device. To use the remote control for the Member's U-verse TV Receiver again, have them press the AT&T Mode key.

    RX-4109 Remote Controlled Stereo Receiver with Phono Section

    Unlike the budget stereo receivers now flooding the entry-level price points at dealers across the country, the Sherwood RX-4109 is designed and built in-house with the same quality and attention to detail we have been bringing to our audio gear for the last 50 years.

    With 105 Watts RMS per channel, phono section, binding posts, a versatile remote control and switching for two pairs of loudspeakers, the only thing that bespeaks the word "budget" about the RX-4109 is its modest cost.

    MSRP 179.95

    PS-T3 connection to Sherwood 4105 Receiver

    You need a phono stage (phono amp) between the turntable and receiver to boost the lower signal from the turntable. If your receiver has phono inputs, use those as there will be a built-in phono stage.
