Hiya, sad to say it wont work even with the correct plugs. If you really need/want to get it going, you will need a RIIA pre amp to use to convert the turntable levels to an acceptable level for the bose. Once you have that, then get the correct matching plugs for the bose (sames guys that supply the preamp should be able to help). Suggest a google search in your area "RIIA PREAMP" and see who supplys.

Best of luck

Gareth urie must have an ancient turntable. most of the turntables made in the last ten years already have a built-in preamp. all you need to hook it up to a bose wave music system is an adapter that allows you to convert the two phono cables into into a single stereo (1.8") jack.... you can easily find those at any electronics store for cheap.

Can I connect my Bose wave music system to my LG LED TV LB55, lb56,lb62


Of course.

At the rear of your TV, find the Red and White RCA sockets, which are the Audio OUT.

At the rear of your Bose, find the Red and White RCA sockets, which are the AUX IN.

Using an RCA audio cable, connect those 2 pairs of RCA sockets.

Then, on your Bose, select AUX as the source, and if you've done EVERYTHING correctly, your Bose will now be the speaker system for your TV.

Aiwa turntable not playing through the speakers


Has the amp got a dedicated phono socket for the turntable? If you are using a tape or aux socket it might not have the pre-amp needed to hear the deck. If your amp doesn't have a socket for the deck, you will need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp.

Also check the connections to the cartridge, they might have come loose.

How to connect tablet to bose radio


This can be relatively easily achieved using a 3.5mm stereo plug to 2 x RCA plug lead, available from most electronics stores at modest cost, to connect the headphone socket of your tablet to the 'Aux In' connection on the wave radio.

Be careful not to turn up the volume on the tablet too high or you will get audio sound

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

Connected to turn table. having sound problem. At 99, sound hardly audible.


The bose as most all in one systems do not have an inbuilt phono stage. Phono especially MM type have a very low signal and an eq curve that gets altered in the phono stage. Without a phono stage (known as a phon pre amp) you will not get much fun from your turntable. To connect : turntable out - into phono preamp - phono pre amp out into bose line in/aux in

How do I connect my turntable to my micro hi fi.The only sockets I have on the hi fi are aux and headphone socket.


You will need to look for a magnetic cartridge preamp this will then plug into the aux socket. If you need that socket for something else I suggest you get a switcher box. You might even get one with a cartridge pre-amp built in!

Is it possible to connect turntables and mixer to Acoustic Wave Music System 2 through the Aux, and simultaneously play a backing CD so that both can be heard? Eg, scratching vinyl over a hip hop beats CD.


Yes.

A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most setero receivers and preamps have Phono connection and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Many mixers out there have a Phono section or two, too, so your mixer will determine what you can do with vinyl.

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment.

The mixer can send its output to the Aux input on the AWMS-2.

If you have only the internal CD player I don't think you will be able to do what you want. Reason: the AWMS-2 doesn't have a traditional Tape Monitor circuit which would allow its own internal program (including AM/FM) to exit to your mixer and come back in via the AUX. Selecting AUX disables its output. Thgis is to preevent a potential feedback loop. The AWMS wasn't designed for people who want or can control complexity in their listening.

If you have the external 5-CD changer or another CD source, you would be able to run all that through the mixer prior to its entry into the AWMS-2.

Not on its own, but you could connect an external CD to the auxilliary (AUX) RCA/ phono inputs on the back evn a cheap, personal CD player could be connected from the line out / headphone socket! (If you do this from the headphone socket, make sure you only have the CD player set to about two thirds volume or the sound will be distorted and poor)
