Re: 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.

You would need a mini jack to stereo rca wire. Insert the mini jack to your Ipod's headphones, then plug the stereo rca to your amp inputs. If it's a receiver, plug into any of the inputs (aux, tape etc) except "phono or turntable", then switch to respected input on the receiver. Be sure all volumes on both units are down during this process, then gradually turn up both volume to normal level.
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!
Use a phono to RCA stereo jack (pic below) and hook one end to the head phone jack on your ipod and the other ends to your amplifier aux or tape input and adjust the volume to low on the ipod - select the input on the stereo - Aux or tape in.
You'll need this type of cable
If your turntable has an amplified output, go ahead and plug it in to the aux port. If not, you won't be able to use it with your receiver properly. Look on the back (or front) of your turntable for a knob labeled "level" or "volume", and that will determine if it's amplified or not. Good luck, I hope this helps!
PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.
I have my ipod hooked through my receiver, what I did was bought a cord that plugs into the place where you put you headphones and on the other end it has RCA jacks and plug up into you AUX and it should work good thats how I listen to my ipod really loud.
You have a VERY nice turntable!
TWO quick questions:
1) How do you define "minimal" volume? It is not NECESSARILY unusual that your turntable / receiver combination will have lower volume than your tuner, CD or DVD player. What happens when you CRANK IT UP?! Don't worry about the position of the volume control!
2)Are you changing the turntables output settings via the switch under the platter?
Please post a reply and we'll go to the next step!
Note: Ceramic cartridges are pretty much extinct. They were strictly low-end, low-cost, low-fidelity devices used in cheap audio systems of "yesteryear". Have you ever seen a BSR or Garrard turntable? Or your grandad's Magnavox Console Stereo? THAT'S where you'd find a ceramic cartridge!
You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input.
The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack.
I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you.
