You need a turntable with a pre-amp since most new receivers no longer support non amplified turntables. I have the same problem which is why I'd like to fix my Pioneer SX-780 vintage 1978+/-.,

A traditional turntable only works on Phono (which contains special preamplification and equalization circuitry designed to raise the the level and flatten out the response of a phono cartridge).

After you do that, iIf you're not having hum problems I wouldn't worry about the ground. Or try it again on the FM Ground.

Use one of the screws that hold the receiver's case. Also, if you haven't already tried to use the turntable, make sure that the receiver's volume is turned way down, typically phono inputs are a lot more attenuated than aux inputs are. You may damage your speakers and or your ears!

The upper link is for the turntable, the lower is for the receiver. they want you to create an account tu dowlnload so just create an account with them. In my expierience turntables had hook upeads out the back(wires connected) that would hook to phono in on receiver and speakers would hook to receiver via speaker wires(may not be included) by pos and neg. The speaker wire usually either has a rib or a line or writing on on leg so you can identify which wire you would want to be pos or neg.

What type of TT? Old school should work ONLY on the Phono. Self-pre-amplified use the Aux. Perhaps the TT has a problem???

Can't seem to get any music from the turntable


Do you have the ground wire from the Turntable hooked up to the receivers ground terminal? it's a screw down silver nut and should be next to the Phono input. You are just lacking a ground from the turntable to the receiver. If you don't see a wire from the turntable, look around the chasis of the unit and you will fins it. Hope this helps

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?


The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

Make sure the ground wire from the turntable (they all have one) is grounded to the amp, also the turntable has to be connected to the phono input on the amp. Turntable cant connect to cd or aux. Only phono. Also check to see if there is dust and dirt built up on the needle. clean if needed. most likely a grounding issue

Hooking up Turntable to Yahama HTR-5660


you have to have a pre amp, or an old reciever with a phono input.

you dont have to use the aux input, the cd or md-cdr inputs will be fine, but you do need that preamp for that reciever
