You may have two possibilities depending on the configuration of the turntable.
Your Denon should have inputs marked for 'Aux,' 'Line' and possibly, if it is built with the expectation of use with a turntable, 'Mag' or 'Magnetic.'
Your turntable may have a 'Line' output or only a shielded cable carrying a very small voltage from the magnetic head. I assume the pickup is magnetic and not crystal which has a much higher output level but also a higher impedance that requires a matching input.
You should have any of the above outputs in pairs and if the color coding conforms to current standards, there should be in- and outputs marked with red (right channel) and white (left channel).
I would first try connecting the turntable's leads to the 'Line' input since most later turntables have a small amplifier circuit built in that will take the signal from the pickup, amplify it, and match it to the levels and impedance of the line input on the Denon.
There isn't any danger of making a fatal mistake and you should hear right away if there is excessive distortion or a loudness even when the level is set to a low setting; this implies that the output from the turntable is higher than that input wants to see.

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.

I have Pioneer Amplifier with Phono Inputs. Also I have an Akai stereo Equalizer. I want to connect my Turntable to the pioneer amplifier through Akai stereo Equalizer to have a better sound quality. Is it...

hook the turntable "directly" up to the "phono" inputs. if it sounds normal this way, and not loud and distorted, then you have to plug the turntable up that way, directly to the reciever's phono input.

you can hook the eq up through the "tape in/out" jacks.

take the tape record out jacks, and hook them up to the input of the eq, and take the tape play input jacks and hook them up to the output of the eq. then, to use toe eq, select whatever input you want eq'ed, while also selecting "tape monitor"

Hook up

You need an amplifier to connect a turntable as the output is much lower than that of other electronic components. The amplifier will need to have PHONO inputs which will connect to your turntable, then you connect the speakers to the output of the amplifier.
