Question about Harman Kardon AVR 100
There is not a specific jack for "phone in". what are my options for connecting my turntable. I do have a DAK mixer that would alllow me to connect to a "line in". again, what are my options.
I agree with 'radio head.'
Turntables require a particular frequency response and the input needs to be correctly equalised to accommodate this. If your amp had phono inputs these would be equalised internally.
Unfortunately, many modern amps no longer have phono inputs. There are two possibly three options.
1) You could obtain a turntable that includes built in Phono eq
2) As 'radio head' says, you can obtain in line active equalisers. These are called RIAA Equalisers (Equalizers if you're in the US) or RIAA preamps. This allows you to plug your turntable into a small box, then plug the box into one of the audio inputs on the back of your amp.
3) You may be able to adjust your mixer to the required frequency response and use it as a preamp.
What you cannot do, regrettably, is just plug your turntable into an ordinary audio input. It will not do any harm if you want to try it and it will make a noise, but you won't like it!

You will need a phono pre amp there are small one made and this will allow you use any line in you like...parts express has them and radio shack use to carry them.. maybe try guitar center or a dj supply.
