You will need to purchase small box that converts your phono magnetic cartridge level output to a higher line input level before it goes into the TV input jack. Radio Shack used to sell a small amp for about $20 that was made just for that purpose and was called a stereo pre-amplifier and was model number SPA-50 and it plugged into the standard wall outlet to get power. Back in the "old" days when phono magnetic cartridges first became popular some of the older home stereos had only the ceramic phono style inputs (or an aux. input) which were about the same input level as a tape input or aux. input (or TV input) and so you would have to use one of these adapters to boost the newer magnetic cartridge signal up to the same level as a ceramic cartridge in order to use a new style of phono. This will fix your problem if you can find one at Radio Shack or some other place, perhaps on the internet. Hope this helps you.

The audio output level is too low. How do i increase it? I have to turn the volume up on the TV almost maximum to hear a "normal" level of volume.

my experience says that the VCR/DVD recorder does NOT has a volume setting inside. Cables may be bad or connected to wrong input but most likely, the TV has a setting for the volume for any source and that is probably set to mid-range like on a PC sound control panel. Go the audio setup on the TV and see if you can adjust the level for each input.

Pioneer vsx 52

I am trying to work out which has got the high volume.
If it is the Pioneer then it could be the volume control chip that is faulty. These days volume is no longer determined by a control that adjusts the signal level. The signal is passed to a chip and the volume control setting information is also passed to the same chip. If the chip goes faulty then the volume will sometimes go to max, regardless of the volume control setting. This can also apply to the TV sound as well.
If the sound level is high on other functions of the receiver, such as the radio, then it is certain to be the sound volume control IC.

The unit is connected to a TV via HDMI lead. I am trying to record from an LP record player to dvd via the front connection of the dvd recorder, it is recording but at very low volume?


You need a phono pre amp between the Recorder and LP. The audio out put of LP player is very low. that why the volume is very low. You should amplify it using a phono pre amp and then connect to the recorder's input.

Does an mp3 player put out enough power for input to KAC-624 amp?

Have you connected the rca plugs to the radio or amp directly? If you've connected it to the radio make sure that the input level controls are adjusted AND available on that model (it will say AUX, INPUT, SUBWOOFER, REAR, etc.) Connecting your mp3 player directly to the amp will not have enough juice to hear sound you need to connect it to the radio first.
