Question about Sherwood RX-4103 Receiver
I have an approx. 25 yr. old Technics turntable SL-BD35 that works fine with my similarly old Technics receiver. The receiver has been cutting out recently (another problem that I could use some help with) so I purchased an Sherwood receiver RX-4103. This receiver supports my CD and cassette players but has no phono ports so I connected the turntable to aux. The turntable plays but no sound comes through the speakers unless I really crank the volume. I tried all the other ports; CD, tape, TV/VCR but the same result. I tested the turntable again on the Technics receiver (while it lasted) and it still works fine. Is there anything else I can try or, for some reason, will the Sherwood receiver not support a turntable? Thanks.
The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.
