I get an intermittent loud hum using NAD AV316 amplifier, with stereo speakers(B connection) with phono input from Dual 606 turntable. Hum increases/changes when tone arm on turntable is touched.


The hum of course is the 60 cycle line AC voltage. Make sure that the routing of the AC power plug is as distant as possible from the stereo RCA cables.

The most likely problem is the connection of the phono cartridge to the wires in the arm. These connections usually are silver plated and become oxidized creating a bad connection. Remove the cartridge and using a fine eraser polish the connections. There is a ground connection that makes the five wire connection. Be super carfull these terminals are very easy to break

The phono connections to the stereo is very low voltage subject to interference. The connection to the magnetic pickup at the tone arm is low impedance and is inductive. Any poor connection between the cartridge up to the AV316 will produce this hum. Continue to check connections and swap cables with a known good to resolve.

I have switched the left and right cables to ensure that the cable is not the problem.

Hope this helps?

Is an unidentified player compatible with an NAD integrated amp which has analog inputs?


As long as the "player" has phono connections you should have no problems with compatibility.

If the amp does not have a dedicated sockets for a turntable - often marked "phono". Then plugging it into an aux socket won't work. You will need to get a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp. The turntable plugs into this and that plugs into your aux socket. If at the present you turn up the volume really loud you might just hear the record playing. That will tell you that the cartridge is OK.

I have a NAD turntable. I have noticed that on occasions there seems to be a background crackle.. Thought it was dust at first !! Have swapped the connection over where the turntable plugs into the amp....


Either you have a poor earth connection or you are getting a lot of static from the records you play. The best way of getting rid of static is a spray you can get for cleaning records. Search on-line for Anti-Static Record Cleaner.

Low volume through amplifier


Turntables generate a very low signal. Phono inputs on receivers containa pre-amp section to boost the signal to "line level" or the same level as other audio devices. I would suspect that you need to add that pre-amp section. Phono preamps are available for around $20 or so and are inserted between the turntable and the standard audio input on the receiver or amp.

Hope this helps,

Connecting NAD 2600a amp.


Never connect incompatible connections. Speaker outputs are for speaker inputs. Period.

The various inputs on this or most any amp are for Line Level signal with the exception of anything explicitly labeled "PHONO" as that would be for a non-preamplified turntable ONLY.

From what I have found online, Lab-In was a NAD feature that restored the frequencies that were rolled off when turntables were being used in the (assumed) preamplifier that fed this amp.

http://web.295.ca/~peak//audio.html

"NAD belleived at the time that practical PHONO stages and the preamp and power amplifier stages be rolled off at subsonic frequencies to prevent subsonic wow and flutter from Turntables and supersonic frequencies (EMI/RF/Radio) signals from getting into the system in the first place. Their notion was that if your ears cannot physically hear it, then why amplify it. For the PURIST, there were a set of LAB IN amplifier inputs with more extended response called "LAB IN" inputs"

Use the Lab In's UNLESS you have a turntable source.

You should connect the RCA connectors from your turntable into the phono input of the preamp. Also, make sure you have the grounding wire from the TT connected to the grounding on the preamp (if you do not have a grounding point, then just connect it to one of the screws on the preamp). Then connect the output from the preamp to either the Tape or the CD points on the T760. On the front panel press tape monitor and you're done.

Check and let me know how it goes. My set up's working fine except for clarity, which still needs to be perfected. I'm using a normal step-up phono stage.
