When the playback is going on, the sound can get blurring, fuzzy, now it can get worse or better when I touch the rca cables.
If its a problem with the RCAs - then what is the solution, and how easy is it to fix it.

Re: RCA Phono plugs
Replace the rca leads, make sure the ground lead is tethered, make sure the lines arent crossed under the headshell....but soldering a fresh pair of rca, usually fixes that....Also remove the headshell/cartridge, and see if there is any residue in the 4 contacts in the tonearm....

Most subwoofer have a left and right phono/RCA sockets. The amp should have a sub out phono/RCA plug. The sub should have come with a phono/RCA lead that will connect these - one plug to two plugs.
Apart from the mains plug that's all there is really. You may have to switch the sub socket on the amp on.
Instructions: Evaluate your current receiver. Take a look at the back-panel connections to make sure you don't have a phono input. In most cases, the phono input will be clearly marked. If the connections are not marked, look for a set of RCA-style inputs with a grounding screw next to them; this is a phono input. If there isn't a phono input on your receiver, see if you have an open set of RCA inputs. If they are all occupied by other equipment, you can disconnect one piece of equipment, buy an A/V switcher or get a new receiver--preferably one with a phono input. 2
Purchase a phono preamp. The voltage output of a turntable is much lower than those of other peripheral devices, including CD players, tape decks and game systems. Although the inputs look the same, connecting a turntable to a standard RCA audio input will result in very faint sound output, if you hear anything at all. The output of your turntable must be amplified to a level of about 150 millivolts (mVs) before it reaches the receiver, so a turntable "pre-amplifier" or phono preamp is necessary. 3. Purchase patch cables. You'll need a set to run from the preamp to your receiver. Measure how long your cables need to be, and purchase accordingly. Resist the temptation to "go cheap," because better-quality cables will provide better sound. 4.
Connect the preamp into the system. First plug the preamp into an AC power outlet. Most models have a small AC-to-DC adapter built into the plug. Then connect the cables from the turntable to the preamp, and connect your new patch cables from the preamp to the receiver. 5.
Adjust the gain of the phono preamp. Most models have a gain control for fine-tuning. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer and adjust your system accordingly.
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.
If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?
From the manual....
2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input.
Run audio INTO the MD play in the L & R IN jacks.
For playback, run (RCA phono plug cables) from the L & R OUT to your amplifier AUX or TAPE inputs. Try playback working first, then add the record function.
