Pioneer turntable Pl-560 and Pioneer Receiver VSX-D409

How do I connect this turntable to this receiver? I put the connection in the Aux slot but the sound coming out of the speakers is extremely low.

Thanks,

Claude Butler

    Hello:

    I have a similar problem. Trying to connect a turntable to an Onkyo TX-SR302, but do not have an AUX input. Tried Tape, CD, and Video audio inputs with no luck. What is a phono to line level preamp?



    Thanks.

No phono inputs?? You will need a phono to line level preamp to use aux input.

Magnetic phono cartridges like the one on your pioneer has an output of about .005 Volts, the standard inputs are looking for 1 to 2 volts for fulol out put, the phono preamp will step up the output voltage to 1 volt so you can play it thru a non phono input like Aux, tape or tuner.

Radio shack sells cheap ones and you will hear what you pay for.

I sell turntables and audio gear, check out www.soundsciencecat.com

Good Luck,

Pioneer turntable to Pioneer VSX 515 receiver


I'm not sure what you mean by "Wot", but I assume you mean that the receiver doesn't have a phono input, as most receivers now a days don't. You will need a phono preamp. Cost is under $25.00. It provides the amplification to be able to use any high level(CD, DVD, AUX, etc) input as well as the RIAA equalization you need to decode the record correctly. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume


You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

My pioneer pl-200 doesn't play loud enough through my pioneer vsx-521-k receiver


The PL-200 has no pre amp and your VSX-521 has no phono input. You need an RIAA preamp.

How to hook up a turntable to a pioneer vsx-1019


receivers with a PHONO input can connect a turntable easily by just connecting the white and red stereo audio cables from the turntable to the phono inputs on the receiver. receivers without a PHONO input can still connect a turntable by using a phono-preamp whose output can connect to any analog stereo input on the receiver like CD or AUX.

How do i connect a pioneer pl-630 turntable to a pioneer vsx-1919ah receiver


Are you meaning it doesn't have a connection for a turntable, just aux connections etc?
Check if it has a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first, if it doesn't you can get one just put the words: magnetic cartridge pre-amp, into Google to find one. Once you get it that will plug into an aux socket and the turntable into that, so you can hear the sound.

Can I connect my Dual turntable to pioneer VSX D712 receiver. I tried connecting it to a preamp (bought from Circuit City) and then to AUX, but all I get is a loud hum


I presume you bought a PHONO preamp from RS. That should be all you need. Is the TT otherwise functional? Loud hum is usually an ungrounded or unshielded signal cable. Phone cartridges create such a small primary signal that any external airborne electrical noise entering the circuit will be very large in comparison. Check cables and make sure the headshell is locked in correctly on the tonearm. Examine the small cables connecting the cartridge. Dual = good turntables. I have a CS1249 from the 70's.

Poor sound


You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input. The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack. I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you. http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html
