LINE is just another name for auxillary input or output, in other words a port to connect a jack etc to or from an external device.

Phono input only plays one speaker and receiver shuts down after playing record for a few minutes


are you using a phonograph with a built-in preamp? If so, then you need to hook it up to a different input. Phono input is only for non-amplifier phonographs, otherwise you will over-drive the amp.

Poor sound quality in phonograph and radio. CDs won't play.


There are at least two problems, audio output problems, "ic" to the laser pickup assembly none functional. From the description you would be further ahead replacing the Audio Shelf System rather than spending money on repairing it.

Where can i obtain a realistic 32-1200 manual for free? or what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean?


In reference to the question -
" what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean? "
these jacks are for the input of phonograph record cartridge signals.
Phonograph cartridges are of two types -
1. "Cera"mic (ceramic) cartridges generate their signal using a ceramic crystal which provides almost 1/2 a volt of current.
2. "Mag"netic (magnetic) cartridges generate a more accurate signal than a ceramic cartridge but the magnetic cartridge generates its signal using a moving-magnet mechanism (rather than a ceramic crystal) and the magnetic cartridge generates much less current than a ceramic cartridge, so its signal needs a lot more amplification than a ceramic crystal's output. So the two jacks on the back of the mixer provide different levels of amplification for the phono cartridges, less amplification for a ceramic cartridge and more amplification for a magnetic cartridge.
Since few people play phonograph records any more it is understandable that the public has little knowledge of the differences between ceramic and magnetic cartridges. But each have their own benefits and usually ceramic cartridges are cheaper than magnetic cartridges simply because it takes a lot more sophisticated manufacturing technology to make a magnetic cartridge, though magnetics are usually preferred over ceramics because of their more accurate generation of a signal from the wiggling groove in a phonograph record. But for those who can hear, the complete sound signal from a phonograph record is much preferred over the dead and dry sampled sound from a digital CD. And the old 1/4" reel-to-reel tape recordings are the highest sound quality of all because they are direct copies of the original magnetic tape masters with no digitizing at all. The fullness of their sound is astounding compared to any digitized signal..
A mag input is down at the mic level.
A ceramic input is almost up at the line level.

No input selection for phonograph. can i not play a turn-table through this thing?


Hello sir hi, good day. Phonograph are becomming obselete these days, and most electronics manufacturers now omit the phono input.

You can use your phonograph but you may need to buy a separate phono preamp or audio mixer to be fed on any line in input such as auxiliary or CD in.

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

Trouble recording records


When recording from a phonograph, I use the following items.

Depending on the phonograph whether or not it's MC or MM makes a difference in sound although most can't tell the difference. Also, you need to know if your phonograph requires a pre-pre amp or if that pre-pre amp is built in and the line coming out is at line level. The Rolls item is a pre-pre amp unit which takes to older phonographs signal level to that of input levels which allow the phonograph to be connected to any aux line in.

On the back of the computer, you can plug the RCA jacks from the phonograph into the adapter and directly into your computer via the MIC (usually pink) input. Most of the time this is sufficient. If the volume is too loud, or sounds horrible, chances are you have a pre-pre amp and you then plug it into the line in (usually blue)

First I would connect the RCA's from the phonograph to the adapter and plug it into the mic and see how the sound is.

Keep in mind that you do not use the ROLLs unit when connecting this way. If it's too loud or distorted, plug it into the line in.

For recording, you can download Audacity which is free and a wonderful editing program.

Computer to stereo volume is very quiet...


Unless you have a choice of inputs, nothing.
If available, you can try a magnetic cartridge input which is much more sensitive than 'Line.'
It may be screechy though, different curve.

Radio channel coming through on cd zone


Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

Phono input


I am not really familar with this receiver but almost all phonograph must go into a phono in. Due to the fact that a phonograph does not have whats called a pre amplifier. generally the receivers have a phono in and that input has an more sensitive amplifier cicuit in the input. That is why if you plug it in to something else unless it has a preamplifier the sound will be real soft. I think Radio Shack sells a amplifier you plug the Phonograph into one side and the other side into the receiver then you can use any input you choose.
