Re: Turntable to Receiver

If you purchase a new turntable, most of them come with a preamp. Usually turns on with a switch located on or under the unit.

Yes you will need a pre-amp to connect a turntable to this unit. For the AUX input you will need something that can output 400mV into 47k ohm, somewhere like RadioShack should have what you need. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Why does connecting Sony PSLX2 deck to AUX input on an HD51 Technics amp yield hardly any sound?

There could be an output-input mismatch. As an experiment, try connecting your deck to some other audio input on your Technics amp.

Turntables required a specific input all of their own, so you can't connect the turntable cables to any other input besides a "phonograph" or "turntable" Chances are the Sylvania Home Theater System does not have the specific turntable inputs.

Yes you need a RIAA preamplifier for magnetic phonograph cartridges. It connects between the turntable outputs and the AUX (or any other) input of your AV receiver. The only other way to make it work properly is to get a receiver or amplifier with a Phono input.

You can connect a turntable to the HK receiver provided the turntaable has a phonograph preamplifier. If not one can be purchased. You can use any line input on the receiver.

Trying to hook up a turntable to my HT C5500/XAA. It's an older Technics turntable W/new stylus & Cartridge. (Correctly installed w/ground) Have tryed Accesseories input but am getting extreem low...

Sadly, it is only a Home Theater System. It is not a Audio/Video Receiver. The only possible way to get around this is to buy a converter to hook into your RCA turntable to the ASC IN Jack in the front lower left corner as you are looking at it! Sorry, I hope this will help you...

How do I connect a disk player (LP)

That would depend on the turntable model andits capabilities. If it's old-school, non-preamplified, you would need an external phono pream first, then run it into the Aux or any other available Line Level input.

Some contemporary turntables have their own selectable internal preamps for use with modern receivers which do not have phono sections. They would jack into any Line Level input.
