What type of speaker cable do I need?

I bought an old Sony record player with an amplifier built-in from ebay, and I can't figure out how to connect speakers or what type of speaker cables I need. There are no clips for speaker wire, and the jacks that are on the back for speaker cables are too small for a 1/4'' male end. I have searched google for days, and am my wit's end. What kind of cable do I need?

Plugged in my old jvc turntable and i can't hear sound coming from the speakers. Any idea what is wrong?


!0 Try if you can and play a record on another amplifier Those were "HiFi" players and the output from the cartridge is max 5/1000 volts which is tiny for aux inputs so you will have to use a pre- amplifier to boost this miniscule output to "Line" levels. Check yourbstilus when was it last replaced?

It looks like your amplifier has not got a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in, or you have it connected to a tape/cd input instead of a phono input. All you need is to search online for one and that will connect between your deck and amp and it will then be the same volume as anything else connected to the amp.

Have Kenwood P25 record player and Kenwood Amplifier A-322, on playing record player sound is very quiet. On a previous record player (P-110) there was a switch on the underside.


I can't find either model you mention anywhere but a turntable without a built-in PHONO preamp will require an external on to drive any input not marked explicitly for PHONO.

eBay always has some...

I was just giving a technics record player sl 1700 and for some reason I get sound out of the record but it does not hook up to my speakers. It has the red and white av cables and I have hooked all that up...


We need to know exactly what you have for electronics to give a specific answer.

Old-school turntables don't connect directly to speakers. It will require a PHONO preamplifier either integrated into a receiver or stand-alone and external to boost and frequency-balance the minute RIAA output signal produced by the phono cartridge.

Hi there! i just bought a numark tt1650 and an ortofon arkiv cartridge, connected it properly to my old technics a700mk2 amplifier (phono, grounding and all that) but it still has a buzzing problem...


Try connecting the turntable to one of the other inputs like CD / tuner etc and see if the buzzing disappears. if so then your turntable has a built-in pre-amp so it can be connected to any input except 'phono' as this would obviously be used for turntables without a pre-amp.
a lot of modern turntables now have built-in pre-amps to compensate for certain amps and receivers made without a phono input and can now be connected just like a CD player, tuner etc.

hope this helps.

I recently bought the below record player; http://www.robertopiecollection.com/Application/Products/steepletone/record-players-GB.asp thinking buying a brand new player would mean having no problems with...


Sounds like a bad ground loop or open shield to the signal path, or feedback from its own speaker or motor. The output of the stylus is so tiny that any electromagnetic noise can easily loom large if it leaks into the signal path.

Be advised that turntables and speakers should never coexist on the same platform or speaker vibration will feed back into the stylus, get amplified again and eventually overdrive the electronics and maybe blow the speaker, which begs the question - how did they get away with it back then? One answer is that there was never any real bass from one of these things.

Try it with minimum volume and work your way up. With the tonearm lifted and the platter turning, listen for audible hum coming from the mechanism itself. If you can hear it, so will the stylus when it's on the platter.

Does turntable have a magnetic cartridge?


Styli supplier "me.and.lurch" on eBay informed me that my AIWA turntable already had a pre amp built in.

No Amplified Sound Coming Out...

Turntables need a preamp due to their very low output compared to modern components. The link above is the one I use. Try connecting to your receiver's phono input if you have one, also try the aux input. If neither of those work, obtain a preamp and you will soon be scratching with the best of them.

Home stereo audio problems


Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?
