It depends on the turntable. If it is an older turntable, then it will not have a built-in preamp and will output too low a signal level for the receiver to use. If it is a newer turntable with a preamp, then it should work just fine

How to hook up to home amp


If home amp has a phono input and you have no turntable, plug the output of the MP3 player into the phono input and begin with the volume turned all the way down. If you do not have a phono input, you can plug something like a DJ mixer in to get that extra level of amplification you want for comfortable listening. If you do that, the MP3 player would plug into the turntable input and the mixer output would go to the available line level input of the home amp.

The CD player has either the coaxial connector, which is not common for home amps, and a pair of "RCA" jacks (right and left) which are.
The CD output can be connected to any avaialble line level input, such as anunused "Aux", "Tape In" "MD/VCR audio in, etc.

What do i need to hook the Stanton T.80 up?


Turntables are simple if you've an amplifier with inputs labelled PHONO (not to be confused with audio plugs called phono or RCA)
If your amplifier hasn't then the sound from the cartridge on the arm won't be good quality.
To make it compatible with a line input usually labelled either that or AUX you'll need a phono converter box. There are quite high price ones but there are equally mid and even low-ish priced ones too.
Look around online for Phono-to-Aux adapters, converters or whatever description and/or visit electronic stores like Radio Shack (still in the USA) or Maplins (UK) if you're near any.

How to hook up my pc's audio to rca rs3531 to


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.
Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level (AUX in your case) input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

I can't get much sound from my tuner/receiver. I have tried all possible connections.


"Much" sound? What's that mean? Very low, almost silent, tinny?

"There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables, that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable (PHONO) input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input."

If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?

From the manual....

2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You

Turntable signal problems are difficult to locate because of the extremely low signal levels. Are you sure that you have the output of the turntable connected to a Phono input? If connected to a standard AUX or Tape input, you won't hear anything. Check for signal by turning on the unit and touching lightly the needle. You should hear a scratching sound. If not, start with a new needle.

Keep us posted.

** sound


First and foremost, make sure you plug into directly to the PHONO input of your receiver. If your unit does not have a PHONO input, then you wont be able to hear much coming from the unit. The PHONO input is a pre-amplified input, and this turntable requires an amplified input in order to transmit it's signal correctly. Just using an AUX or LINE IN will not have enough power to increase the signal of the turntable. You have the option of purchasing a PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER (range in price from US$15-30), or purchasing a new receiver with a PHONO INPUT!

If you have it connected to your phono input, and still no sound, your turntable may have either faulty RCA cables (red/white cables), or a bad tonearm - in either case will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Very low audio output


Make sure your receiver has a PHONO input. If you are connecting it to a LINE or AUX input, then there is not enough signal to boost the sound coming from the turntable. Turntables require a PHONO input, because phono input's have a pre-amp on them, which boost the turntable signal. If you do not have a PHONO input on your receiver, you will need to buy a Phono Pre-Amp.

If you have a phono input, then you might have an issue with the turntable's RCA cables, or your cartridge may be at fault.

Very low volume!


If you're used to playing your vinyl through a hi-fi turntable (and not DJ turntables) then you're probably used to your turntable having a built-in amplifier. DJ decks don't have these and if you plug into 'line' it will come out very quiet. Try plugging into 'phono' if you have it, if not you'll need some extra amplification somewhere between the deck and the speakers (a mixer usually takes care of some of this before it goes into the main amp of the system). Hope this helps. Ad
