Can't get a signal from my Turntables to record on my tape deck. I'm running turntables through RX 206 Amplifier and don't understand the RCA ins and outs.

I need to know how to record from my turntables to my JVC TD W 106 tape deck

Connect them to a receiver with a phono preamp.

Low sound from denon turntable through amp


Has the Denon got a magnetic cartridge pre-amp built in? A good indication that it has will be if has a dedicated socket for a record deck. Connecting it to a tape or aux will only work if you purchase a separate Magnetic Cartridge pre-amp.

Crosley turntable won't play through home stereo


Quite possibly the sockets you put the deck is not designed for the playback of phono signals. They should be marked "phono".
Other issues are earth connections.

I am trying to record my old vinyl records to a CD. I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling...


Complex? Traditional turntables need PHONO preamaplifiers (in receivers) to PREAMPLIFY the minute signal they produce to something useable.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

Just curious, priorto the arrival of the RCD, how did you play or listen to the turntable?

NO SOUND WITH EVERYTHING PLUG IN .


I assume that you're talking about the output from the 2 RCA Phono Jacks? Does this turntable output a "Line Level" signal, or a standard millivolt level 'turntable signal'? If it is an older 'standard turntable', then you need to run it into an amplifier that has a "PHONO" input and ground wire. This will amplify the tiny signal to a 'line level' signal that you can record or run to a computer, etc. If you do not have an older amplifier with "PHONO" input jacks, then you need to buy a separate stand-alone 'phono amp/preamp' that will boost your (tiny 10mv) turntable cartridge levels high enough (.5 to 1 volt) to record on another device. Let me know if that is the case. Good luck.

Half the signal only through left speaker


Try the switch in the other position and see if that fixes the problem. some turntables had a phono level that is different than a standard rca line level input. Also try a different cable if the rca is not hardwired in to the turntable. The cable could be bad. If worse comes to worse upgrade to another amplifier or tuner that has a separate phono input. hope that helps.

Need to record from turntables to cassette deck.


Bypass the reciever. Just mixer to tape deck. You will get a better recording anyways!

HOW TOTRANSFER FROM CASSETE DECK VIA ION USB TURNTABLE


I'm thinking this is 100% impossible. There is absolutely no way you can get a cassette tape to play on a turntable.

Yamaha Natural Sound Amp and Tape Player


All of this applies to nearly any analog consumer audio gear...

If you have any Tape Deck and an Equalizer and only the one Tape Monitor loop you should place the EQ into that Tape Monitor loop, then place the Tape Deck onto one of the probable two Tape Monitors on the EQ as it sounds like you had here...

"When I had it set up with the graphic equaliser,pressing tape monitor on the amp and on the equaliser gave me play backfrom the tape player."
That setup will allow you to apply EQ to any analog source and the tape deck in record or playback mode.

However, if you want to remove the EQ and use the Tape Deck directly on the Tape Monitor just attach the deck's Playback cables to Tape Mon In (Play) and the deck's Record cables to the Tape Mon Out (Rec). Flip the Tape Mon control to hear the tape deck or monitor it while recording.

NEVER plug anything but a turntable into the Phono. It has a preamp that expects a ver ysmall signal from the cartridge AND it also has a severe RIAA Equalization curve which would result in grossly exaggerated frequency extremes if you managedto get a non-LP source into it. Likewise, turntables without internal electronics mut always use the Phono section of a receiver, preamp or integrated amp to get the boost and EQ they need.

Low Audio


You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.

This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.

Your 3 options are:

* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
