You should check the sound interface on your computer. It could be that the line in is muted or set to low.

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

is the wire loose on either end? sometimes the electrical plugs can cause noise due to resistance, so trying different outlets might help too

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.

Why is there no music being transmitted from turntable to sound system?


If the amps connected to the deck have no dedicated "phono" socket / setting you will only hear weak sound. However you can get a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. This connects between the turntable and amp and makes the signal the same level as what would come off say a tape recorder.

You need an amp that has a PHONO input or you have to get a phono pre-amp and run it 's output into a tape or AUX input on the amp with the turntable plugged into the pre-amp input.

I hooked up the ion LP Dock to an analogue amplifier (which is hooked up to my LCD tv and outputs the sound through some bookshelf speakers) via the Phono input connections as per the instruction manual...


"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.


BUT, modern turntables like your come with their own preamplifiers, so they MUST be connected to a garden variety Line Level input like AUX (anything BUT Phono or it will overload).


http://www.needledoctor.com/Ion-LP-Dock-Turntable?sc=7&category=16189


"LP DOCK also has a line-level output for connecting to any home stereo with an AUX input"


As far as WHY your amplifier isn't making da music, that could be whole 'nother problem.


We'd need more details about it and the speakers to go there.

I have a Sony direct drive PS-X5 turntable. I have to turn the amp up all the way to hear any sound.


If you're not connecting the TT to a PHONO preamp or a receiver with a built-in PHONO connection the signal from it will be too weak to get any meaningful volume PLUS the RIAA equalization curve required for flat phono playback won't be applied so it will sound very 'tinny'.

Google it.

When i use a speaker control switch i am unable to get sound from my second pair of ''b'' speakers. plus i am unable to get my turntable to produce audio


To make sure please switch the working "A" cables and speaker
pairs with "B" connectors and test it again.If it works ,check your "B " cables and speakers..

There are two types of turntable cartridges ..,magnetic and ceramic stylus..
your Turntable should be connected to turntable input.and both turntable and input should be same type as either magnetic ( that requiers phono preamps ) , or ceramic (that needs no preamplification at all ).Please check both your receiver and turntable user manuals to verify the types and decide which one to connect to other..good luck

I was wondering what the extra wire attcahed to the audio cords it looks like a speaker wire


the bare stripped wire is for grounding the turntable to the receiver to eliminate any hum sound. If after connecting both phono plugs, you only get sound from one channel on the turntable but sound plays out of both channels on all other inputs then replace the phono plugs as this is the most likely problem.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

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.
