If your turntable has an integrated amplifier you connect it directly to any regular input like DVD or CD. If this is a classic turntable you need to buy external phono amplifier. It is a small box with phono inputs and rca regular outputs you plug your turntable trough this box to cd or dvd input of the receiver. Can be tube or transistor amplifier. price vary from 20 to hundreds dollars.

    Thank you for such a swift response! Ok I actually have a Recoton preamp. so after I plug in the turntable, I plug the other cable from the preamp directly to either the CD or the DVD input? Is that right?

  • jonesgrp Oct 17, 2013

    Ok I did that and have no sound. Plugged phono cables into L&R inputs on the preamp. Then plugged supplied RCA cable into R &L outputs of the preamp, then plugged other ends of that cable into the CD input or DVD input on the receiver. Plugged preamp into a grounded outlet. Tried to play vinyl: no sound. what am I missing?

  • EBC ELECTRONICS Oct 17, 2013

    Everything is correct. should work. Maybe you missing a power supply from preamp?

  • EBC ELECTRONICS Oct 17, 2013

    check that the receiver input works, connect a cd player to test.

If the receiver doesn't have a function specifically named PHONO, yes. Very few AVR's have phono preamps. They're not expensive. I'd check eBay.

How do I connect a turntable to my nakamichi av-8?


This model does not seem to have a dedicated phono socket on the back. But you can connect it to the AUX socket. However in order to get any volume out of the deck. You will need to pass it through a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first. You should be able to pick one up at places such as Amazon. You plug the deck leads into the pre-amp and then the out leads into the aux socket of the av-8.

Keep in mind that the phono jacks are typically tuned to a much lower input voltage than CD jacks, because old turntables put out a much lower voltage. If you are using turntables manufactured pretty much anytime after the 80's, their output voltage will be higher than the phono (which is short for phonograph, which gives you an idea of the timeline of this connector) input voltage allows, so you'll get distortion. This is not indicative of a defect in the amp or the turntables, it's just a sign of the times - there are very few devices in existence today that you could possibly hook to a phono input without getting distortion.
If you need to use the CD inputs for something else, I would buy an input selector from Amazon that will let you plug multiple components into one set of inputs, then you just select which component you want to use at any given time. There are models of these allowing anywhere from 2 to 10 different components hooked up to the same input, so pricing varies dramatically of course, but a standard 2- or 3-component input switcher should only cost about ten bucks.

When i hook up my B &O turnable to Audio 1 Or Audio 2, i got sound but at very low volume even when jacked up to max. all other components blast out audio from my speakers.


It's logical, the audio output level for the turntable is very low (depending on the model about 1-5mVolts) while the line inputs (where you try to connect the turntable) can handle audio levels of 500-775mVolts. As I can see your amplifier is not able to handle this kind of inputs (assuming that your turntable is a typical one, without any include preamplifier) In case you insist on connecting this turntable on this amplifier there are some solution to suggest (mainly using a kind of pre-amplifier between the turntable and the main amplifier) but in order to be sure for what to suggest to you, please clarify me the brand / model for this turntable.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I can barely hear the record when played on my Stanton T.52


Is this a sudden onset problem or has it always been like this?

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

You don't say what electronics you're running this through. I suspect you have it jacked into a Line Level input instead of a specific Phono input. The result would be very low, tinny sound.

If so, you need to get a Phono Preamplifier.

Are you using the phono input on the Sony? If so, you're getting too much gain, you've already got a phono pre amp in the Behringer. Try using the tape or C.D. input. That should solve it.

hook the turntable "directly" up to the "phono" inputs. if it sounds normal this way, and not loud and distorted, then you have to plug the turntable up that way, directly to the reciever's phono input.

you can hook the eq up through the "tape in/out" jacks.

take the tape record out jacks, and hook them up to the input of the eq, and take the tape play input jacks and hook them up to the output of the eq. then, to use toe eq, select whatever input you want eq'ed, while also selecting "tape monitor"

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?


The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

No Sound from Turntable


It definitely has to go through a preamp (a PHONO preamp that is...) something like this: http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html
