No. The RCA jacks are fine. Most likely, you are not using an amplifier with a PHONO input. A CD, DVD, AUX, etc.input if used, will give you a very low sound and poor frequency response(sounds tinny and low). You will need a PHONO preamp that can raise the output of the turntable to match that of the higher level, 300mv inputs mentioned above and have correction for the RIAA decoding to make the music sound correct. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Hi

Yup you sure do. A phono preamp also has RIAA equilisation, that reduces the treble and boosts the bass. You need this because all LP vinyl is recorded that way, and sounds terrible withpout it.

Most amps these days do not have a phono preamp. For a relatively cheap fix for the problem, you could pick up a preamp from here. Another way is to get a DJ mixer, or pick up a cheap amp of ebay, or hit the second hand/pawn shops for something to do the job for you. Happy to answer any questions you may have about it. Cheers

SOURCE: Sound from only one of two speakers when playing turntable

wow my friend just had this same exact problem last week. Apparently, it was his stylus that wasn't pushed in all the way or not secure enough. Try that first, because that is the originating source of your stereo output.

I need help with volume and popping and cracking in the speakers. It's a new system and it's only plugged into my record player.


You are most likely going to need a preamp to go between your home theater and record player. The popping and hissing is usually a grounding issue. You will have to ground your system properly to get rid of this.

The sound is really low if i press the aux tape cd phono or vcr the sound is there but really low


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.

I would like to add a turntable to my Bose Cinemate II but when i plug the RCA directly into the Bose module the volume has to be to the max and is still very quiet


You need a preamp to solve that problem, the older amps and receivers had built in phono inputs with a preamp stage. Radio Shack use to make a preamp that ran on a 9volt battery for turntables that ran into the very problem you are talking about. But I do not know if they are still available, go to www.ebay.com Type: turntable or turntable preamp

Technics 1310 turntable has left channel (white


There are just two causes, one is the preamp, which can be easily checked by putting the right channel jack in the left terminal. If the sound is normal, then it's likely that the cartridge in the deck is bad, or some wire is loose. However if the sound is still poor then the magnetic cartridge preamp in the amp has a fault. These are normally a single IC, which will have failed. Find the preamp by tracing the wires from the imput socket to the PC board, which may be alone.

Technics SL-BD22 ground wire does not reduce hum. Any solutions?


presuming it has "some" effect, then gnd wire itself it good. Even though there may be a gnd thumbscrew on the preamp try slipping the ground wire under a screw on the main amp or receiver that screws into metal and make sure the gnd wire is touching metal under the screw.

if that didn't help, then you may have:
>a cartridge with an open gnd internally.
>an open gnd wire from the back of the cartridge to the outer shields of the RCA connectors.
>or your neutral & hot wires of your house wiring might be reversed causing something weird.
>a low quality preamp. (it should have a seperate wall adaptor so that only low voltage dc goes near the preamp)
good luck ground issues can be tough!
