Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver

575 receiver half volume issue

Very little sound when volume is up. It is loud when plugged into the phono rca plugs but very distorted. The other inputs work but when system is turned up all the way it seems like it is about the power is halved. Could it have something to do with the cables. Because my Optical input doesn't work either. It has worked in the past.

When I plug in my marantz TT-42 turntable to my Yamaha R-S300 receiver's phono input, I get a muddy and loud sound. I've tested the turntable with direct input to Bose speakers and it works fine.


If the turntable produces good sound with a line level input on another system, you have the turntable with the pre amp built in. That is why the sound is loud and distorted.

CAN I USE SA-GX130 RECIEVER WITH IPOD


Yes, you can. Go to a local electronics store or go online and buy a cable (we used to call them patch cords back in the day) with a 1/8" STEREO plug, (also called a mini phone plug) on one end and two phono plugs (also called RCA plugs) on the other end. They're available in various lengths -- 12" is a good choice. We're talking less than $10 here.

Connect the RCA plugs into an appropriate pair of unused INPUT jacks on the back of your receiver -- CD, VCR1, Tape Monitor/VCR2 will do. DO NOT use the phono jacks. The red plug is for the right channel. You can leave the cable plugged in. Then whenever you want to listen to your iPod, insert the mini phone plug into the iPod's earphone jack, switch the receiver to the input for the cable, and start playing. You may have to increase the volume on your iPod to avoid having to turn the receiver all the way up (or down) to listen, but after that you can use the receiver's volume control.

How do you plug an ipod into a Kenwood 105vr receiver?


Use a headphone to RCA/phono cable and plug it in to a spare audio input on the amp. Set the MP3 volume to about 50%.

Connected new polks to cambridge audio amp a1 (about 30 watts per channel) and play cds through a panasonic dvd/cd player, but i can't turn up volume past 1 without it sounding too loud. sound is ok, but...


Plug the player in somewhere else besides the PHONO input.

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

I imagine if you REALLY listened hard to the result you have you would find the bass is WAY too.

Google 'RIAA curve' to understand why.

How do we connect up the pc to harmon kardon avr134 to get sound and what setting does it have to be on Cheers


Most computers make lousy audio sources but that said, here's the story. The audio output of the PC will most likely be on a mini-pin connector (usually 3/8"). The receiver uses what are called RCA pin connectors. SO, you need some conversion. I like a little plug in converter available at Radio Shack but most audio stores will have something similar. This has a 3/8 connector on one end 2 phono pins on the other. From that adapter, you take a standard stereo hookup cable (RCA - RCA) and plug it into your receiver. If the receiver has an AUX input, use that. If not, a Tuner input or recorder input will do. Just don't use the phono inputs. Start with your volume control down and slowly increase while the PC is playing. Should be all there is to it - about $5 in parts and cables and 10 min hookup.

Distorted recording and loud


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
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input.

Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner. Sounds ok i guess but is about a quarter to one third lower in volume. Is this normal ? Can I plug phono into cd jacks to check if any better ?


Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

I hooked up my T.52x turntable to my pioneer vsx-d711 receiver through the RCA input...nothing fancy. I have to turn my receiver volume all the way up in order to hear the records. All the digital media...


The signal produced by a phono cartridge is much smaller than a standard Line Level component produces. That is why the clas of equipment called PREamplifiers existed. Besides PREamplifying it to a level the rest of the circuitry can use it also modifies the frequency curve according to the RIAA standard to produce a sonically flat output. Without either process applied you will have weak, tinny sound from a turntable.

The Pioneer VSX-D711, like most modern AV receivers, is not equipped with a Phono Preamp. If the connector doesn't SAY Phono is won't do Phono.

Loud distortion through phono inputs


Phono inputs are designed for turntables only. Any other device will provide too high a signal for that input to handle. The phono input has an extra amplification stage built in. The distortion is because of the high suignal level being supplied to the input. The only way to get this to work properly is to purchase an antenuator which will decrease the signal level to the phono level.
