Connecting speakers to amp

Hi, my grandparents had a turntable and I've just discovered it with a vinyl collection. I want to know how to connect my Sanyo model JA 220 Amp to Pilot speakers. The speakers have a lead coming out of it with a long pin and another slightly shorter. Failing that, do I need to buy new speakers?

    Thanks but the dual pair of cables coming from them have a piece of plastic on the end with 2 bits of metal sticking out of them which I can't connect to the amp. :(

Those two bits of metal are the grounding cables to reduce feedback/noise when playing Vinyl and shouldn't be necessary to still play the vinyl...Pravin's answer is perfect

Your Amp will be having a pair of Phono / AUX input sockets at the rear. Connect the two Red and White cabbles from the Turntable to these sockets. I am unaware of what are Pilot Speakers. regular speakers have a dual colored pair of cables coming from them. they have to be connected to the speakers Connectors at the rear of the Amp. Play a Vinyl Record, select Phono on your AMP, and enjoy your music.

Do I need to connect my older Fisher Turntable to a pre-amp before connecting to my Yamaha RX-V850?


No, you don't need a preamp if your turntable has a moving-magnet (MM) cartridge, it should work as-is! Happy vinyling =]

I can't get loud sound when attached to my speakers. I comes in very low and can hardly hear it. What can I do?


What kind of speakers are you connecting to and how are you connecting? My understanding with this product is that it was designed to connect to USB on computer. If it has RCA (red and white connectors) on it, those are likely line level outputs that will not be strong enough to be run directly to speakers, it would need to go into some type of amplifier.

Have linked it up to my normal surround hi fi system but no sound. No sound either when connected to my pc.


You asked this question in the TTUSB category. Do you have that turntable and how are you connecting it to the surround sound?

The turntable has a USB port and corresponding EZ Vinyl software that lets you monitor the output of the turntable. Then you can connect the computer sound card to speakers to hear what is playing.
