WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP

I have a cheap wally world amp (Durabrand) that my Memorex tv and Sony cd-dvd player sound great on but when I connect my JVC L-AX3 turntable to it the sound is weak and only comes out of 2 speakers. Is it my amp or my turntable?

The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

Which is the best for a CD player with Big Earphones..New Durabrand, Memorex or Coby..or Sony?


Cheap CD/DVD/Blu-ray players are all the same. They come with ear phone ports for most all types of head sets and any type work OK. The best bet is to go to an electronics store (BestBuy) and try some before to buy any.

I am trying to hook up the mvd2016 to a visio tv that is hooked to our cable converter box. I hooked it up, i have the tv but no sound.


your RCA jacks from the DVD player....should be connected to the Vizio a/v 1 in the back of TV (yellow to yellow, red & white to red & white)... now to view using the remote to TV switch to a/v (play a DVD, you should now have a picture and sound)

Memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd


Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

No output from DVD/CD player to TV


Best bet/least effort is to get a newer, slightly more robust DVD player. This unit sells for less than $30. It costs more to ship it over from China than it does to manufacture the player. No kidding! For an ultra-cheap DVD player I'd go with a ~$35 player from wally world. Best of luck.
