Question about Technics SL-1200M3D Turntable
You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.
This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.
Your 3 options are:
* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
