Re: volume is low on my turntable
You have to amplify the output from your turntable output to the input of your amplifier. To do this you can buy what is known as a pre-amp. Radio shack probably still sells them.
Be sure to ground your turntable to your amplifier and not the pre-amp. This should stop any hum or at least diminish it. Bear in mind that your records will not sound as loud as your CD's. Hope this helps.

The only output from the turntable is the low-level signal from the cartridge. Most likely, the receiver you've hooked it to doesn't have a phono input. Many receivers today don't come with one, and if you connect the turntable to a line-level input you get either very low volume or none at all, depending on the cartridge. What you'll need is a turntable preamp to boost the output to line level so the receiver will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp, available online and in some stores. You can also find preamps online (here's one at Amazon). With the preamp connected you can use any free input on the receiver.
Hi, Remove the rubber mat on the platter, there is a toggle-switch for the pre-amp. With the power off, manually rotate the platter and it will become visible through the gaps. This should resolve the low volume issue. Hope this helps. Post back with your results and good luck.
you will probably need to buy a phono pre amp , i have a Dual 505 turntable that worked fine on my ROTEL amp but when i changed amps and went to NAD i had to buy a phono pre amp or else listen to really low sound . hope this helps
If you have and amplifier or reciever you can frist plug your turntable into the amp or rec. and then to your sony CD recorder and then you should be able to adjust your volume to a higher position, also you can hook up and Equalizer and get the needle sound completely out unless your old school and like that LOL. There is also another way to save and make copies of all your old and new records By using the computer and getting a good sound card for your computer unless you have a good one or even buy a expansion bay with remote control made also by sony you can digatally remake all of you albums, Well sorry to go on and on but I am really into doing the same thing , If you need anymore help Please Let Me know Thanks again bear001
