SOURCE: turntable

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: hum when turntable connected to phono sockets on amp

this turntable absolutely came with a ground wire that must connect to the gnd connection on the amp. maybe it got torn off or something but there should be clues on the back of the turntable as to what happened to it.

once the lead is found it must be connected to the amp gnd connect to get rid of the hum. this might require someone with soldering skilz or what have you in order rig up a new wire.

a tech might have to remove the bottom and solder in a new wire if it is cut or ripped off at the housing. This is common as people forget to unhook the gnd wire from the amp when moving things around.

SOURCE: Connect a phonograph turntable to a receiver w/o phono connection

you will need a little box called a pre-amp. This hooks up between the turntable and newer receivers without a phono input. A basic explaination & drawing of this type of setup can be found here

Yes, signal from a turntable is much lower than that from tape/CD.

How can I connect a Thorens 145 turntable to it?


Your Harman Kardon AVR 85 doesn't have "phono" inputs. That means that you can not connect a turntable to it directly. You will need a "phono preamp" to amplify the very tiny signal from the phono cart enough for the HK receiver to play it. Something like this:

PYLE PRO PP444 Ultra Compact Phono Turntable Preamp

will do it. There are certainly better ones, like:

Turntable with built-in preamp won't play on phono channel on technics sadx950, but fine on CD channel. Is phono channel dead?


A turntable with a built-in preamp should not be connected to the phono input, because the preamp of the receiver or ampifier will be overdriven. The task of a preamp is to amplify the very low level of magnetic cartriges to the high level needed to work a line input and does some equalizing work to the signal. You can check if your turntable has a switch to disable the built in preamp (mostly they are low-end quality), otherwise connect the turntable to a high level input like "Tape", "AUX", "TUNER", "MONITOR", or "CD".

My receiver works fine when I plug my iPod into it, but when I plug my turntable in I can't get any sound. Any idea?


The phono cartridge on your turntable puts out a much lower level signal than your iPod. Back when turntables were popular, all receivers had a special phono input to take care of that. Your modern HK receiver does not have a phono input, so you need to get an external phono preamp. Plug the turntable outputs into the phono preamp inputs, then plug the phono preamp outputs into one of the audio inputs on the HK, like where you connected the iPod.

Can I connect a turntable with earth cable to an Onkyo CR515


yes you can but you will need a phono preamp such as the one found here.
http://www.turntableneedles.com/Phono-Pre-Amps_c_4.html
Hook the output of the preamp to Line 1 on the back of the CR515 and for simplest ground wire hookup, choose a preamp with a thumbscrew for the ground (earth) cable coming from your turntable.

Disregarding the narrative about the stylus damage, did you disconnect the TT from the electronics to work on it and then plug it back into something OTHER THAN PHONO? Only PHONO or somethign with a phono preamp supports a TT.

There is also a switch on it called "equalizer amp" that activates its own internal phono preamp. It could be in the OFF position by mistake if you're not using an outboard phono preamp.

As they say - RTFM...

Turntable problem


You will need a phono preamp. Ipods, radios and cd players all give out a LINE level signal..which means you can plug headphones or speakers, adjust volume and be set. A turntable needs a phono preamp. Usually a dj mixer or stereo receiver with a phono input is all that is needed. A simple phono pre amp is like $20 from radio shack.

keep me posted.
