Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Should i buy a preamp for my turntable if i want to record 24/96? I can record now with straight line in to my sound card and the volume at 100%. On occasion some song have a noise floor that is very close to the audio (low recording) when that happens it makes me thing I should get a preamp. I don't want to get one that will limit my recordings (I need to record at 24/96) or that costs a small fortune since this is a one shot deal to record my vinyl then sell it. I have seen cheap ones on Amazon. Such as this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00025742A/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=175P8RZZQ8QG8KA076VG&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846 but it says it does 20Hz - 20kHz.
You need an ADC ( analogue to digital converter) along with a phono preamp to restore the RIAA correction to the turntable output. Check out musicdirect dot com for some examples. Alpha Design Labs makes a great one that retails at $500.

You probaably do not have a phono input on the digital surround amp you are using. Your sound is bad for 2 reasons
You can get one online from here. Or if you are keen build one from a circuit here

SOURCE: Preamp noise
First thing to check is that the phantom power is not turned on. If you are using a condenser mic, then it should. If you are using dynamic mic, then it will crackle and makes weird noises in the manner you describe. Other than that it sounds like you have a failing op amp in your preamp. This sort of repair work is not expensive(with respect to the outcome). I would anticipate $40-60 to fix it. Trouble is you can replace it super cheap at the moment 45% off for $64.95plus $9.95 shipping from zzsounds
So I guess that it may not be worth repairing, and more a replacement item for that money. If you have a mate with electronics experience, you could just replace the opamps at home for $10 worth of parts.
If you think my advice helped you to work out what to do, a FixYa rating would be great. Cheers

Do you mean that the display that show the audio source or mode doesn't turn on? Try shining a bright flashlight at the display and see if you can read it. If you can, then the backlight light bulbs have died.
Replacing it will be a pain but you may find a usable replacement at Radio Shack. Just measure the voltage that goes to the bulbs and find one with similar ratings. They are probably 12v lamps.You will need to remove the display from the front panel of the amp and desolder the old lamps. Getting at the bulbs is the hardest part.

If the mic preamp ICs are getting destroyed, there is something else wrong. Look for the correct B+ and B- voltages. I suspect that there is an offset here that is stressing the ICs to the point that they fail. These ICs should be 4558s or something similar and are readily available for low $$. Contact Beringer directly for the ribbon cable.
