The turntable output does not match a PHONO input.

Kenwood turntable no sound?


Are you using a magnetic "PHONO" input on your amp/receiver, or just a line/aux input? The 'good' turntables from the 70's - 80's used magnetic catridges with a very low level output - you will need a phono preamp in order to hear the turntable. Only phonos (Crosly) that use ceramic catridges generate enough voltage without a preamp. Good luck and let me know if that answered your question.

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

Do i need a record turntable with a biult in amp for my aiea Z-L30


Do you mean AiWa Z-L30?

Generally speaking, if a device doesn't have an input specifically marked "PHONO" it does not have the requisite PHONO preamp for an old-school turntable.

Aiwa plays a word-game on this device and labels an input "Phono" while specifying on page 20 of the manual that you should use a turntable with a built-in EQ Amplifier. In other words, the input should have been labeled a second "AUX IN' as it will accept any sound device that has a Line Level output, not just Phono.

So yes, you need a self-PRE-amplified TT with this product.

Tried to hook up turntable to Amp and will not produce any sound. What am I doing wrong?


The most common cause of this is due to the lack of a phono input. The inputs on modern amps/receivers are line level. Turntables produce a lower signal level requiring a phono pre-amp to get to line level. Purchase a phono pre-amp and connect it between the turntable and the amp. That should resolve the problem.

Old turntable works but is too quiet to hear


It sound like you may have to hook your turntable up to a phono input. Turntables have low level outputs. The phono input is designed to amplify this low level more than the cd/dvd inputs do. If you do not have a phono input, you can buy an external "phono preamp" online. Hope this helps.

Humm


where is the ground wire from the turntable connected to ? Ensure that is is connected to the phono pre-amp's ground.

Is the turntable sitting on top/near any other equipment ? Try changing the position and see if the hum reduces. If yes, then it is likely that it is picking up hum from a mains transformer.

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.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. 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

C. 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).

b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;

d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable


The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck
