Yes you need a pre amp

It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too

There are, of course, many non-Technics PHONO preamps out there.

If you already have the central receiver and amplification part nailed down you really only need a Phono Preamp to boost and shape the output of the Phono Cartridge. Otherwise you're paying for source switching, volume and tones controls you don't need.

SOURCE: I dont have the orginal

Hello,
You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
---------

  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    The volume on technics SL-BD22 turntable will not turn up and stays at one volume


    Since the turntable itself doesn't have a volume control the problem is with the amp it is connected to. It should be connected to an amp with a dedicated phono socket. It's no use connecting it to a tape or aux or CD socket. These sockets do not have a built in pre-amp for the magnetic cartridge. If your amp doesn't have a dedicated phono socket then you can buy a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp that will plug into a tape socket etc on the amp and have the deck plugged into it. If plugged into a none dedicated socket though you can hear it, the volume will be very low compared to other sources. If you have got it plugged into a dedicated phono socket and the volume is still low, then the internal built pre-amp inside your amp for the deck has failed and will need to be repaired. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other functions of the amp.

    Technics SL-D33 Channel drop.


    There's nothing wrong with the turntable then. It's your receiver that's the problem. In order to hear a magnetic cartridge it has to go via a pre-amp. It's this pre-amp that has failed in your receiver. It's only used by a turntable so wouldn't affect anything else. You should be able to trace this pre-amp by following the turntable socket wires. It will probably be a small IC that has failed. If you look up the number you should find it.

    I rather suspect that your amp might not have a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp". If you check your instructions book it should state if the amp has a dedicated "phono" socket with inbuilt pre-amp. If it does use that. Otherwise you can buy a pre-amp online that will do the job.

    I've been given a Technics sl-bd22d turntable, an Arcam amplifier and a Cambridge 551P pre amplifier. How do I connect them all together?


    Depends what type of sockets these have. If the Pre-Amp has a RCA phono sockets you just need some RCA leads. I don't know if the Arcam Amp works with any pre-amp. But if it does, it's likely to have the same type sockets as the others. So you just buy another two RCA leads and connect it up.

    Technics SL-1700 Turntable that is barely audible


    Have you have tried it on a different amp, if not do so - which if it solves you have a faulty phono pre-amp in that amp- if not I would suspect that inside the deck is a faulty pre-amp. Or is the cartridge faulty?
