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

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.

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

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".

Kenwood turntable no sound?


Are you using a magnetic "PHONO" input on your amp/receiver, or just a line/aux input? The 'good' turntables from the 70's - 80's used magnetic catridges with a very low level output - you will need a phono preamp in order to hear the turntable. Only phonos (Crosly) that use ceramic catridges generate enough voltage without a preamp. Good luck and let me know if that answered your question.

How can i put my technic turntables to my amp and connect amp to my pc


Hi, connect to amp using phono inputs on rear panel. If no phono dedicated inputs you can connect to aux or cd inputs however the volume output from your amp will be low. A preamp will fix that. Connect from the record out plugs on the rear panel panel to the mic input on your computer. You will need a rca to 3.5mm jack cable. Cheers john. Styluscity

I have a turntable connected to my technics hifi system but the volume is very low the hifi system is the sc-dv 290 help woud be apricaited


I imagine it is also tinny. Is your unnamed TT self-preampified?

It always helps to know some details about BOTH parts of the scenario when they don't work together. I'm sure the TT's manual would identify how to use it.

http://audio.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/technics/scdv290.html

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

I recently bought this turntable used. I am trying to connect it to a Sony receiver with a phono input, but no sound comes out when connected. Does this turntable require a pre-amp or something?


If the unspecified Sony has a "PHONO" input you should be good to go. What model?

I have a Technics Quartz SL-10 Direct Drive Automatic turntable and I need a pre-amp to drive it through a JVC RX-6012VSL Audio Control System.....preferably a Technics pre-amp.

There are, of course, many non-Technics PHONO preamps out there.

If you already have the central receiver and amplification part nailed down you really only need a Phono Preamp to boost and shape the output of the Phono Cartridge. Otherwise you're paying for source switching, volume and tones controls you don't need.

How do I connect a technics turntable to an RX-V463 AV reciever? Thank you in advance


Modern AV receivers rarely contain PHONO preamps.

A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Yours does NOT.

A standard turntable will require you to acquire an external PHONO preamp to place between the TT and an Aux connction on the receiver.

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment. If your turntable is that type you can select its internal preamp output and run that to an AUX input.

Is the Technics SL-10 turntable a pre-amped turntable?


No matter which cartridge you used on it you still needed a phono preamp.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technics_SL-10

"Due to the low output of the moving-coil cartridge, the SL-10 included a built-in, bypassable step-up preamp to allow it to connect to standard phono inputs."
