Hi Theresa,
I am assuming that you have an Onkyo Integra amp. Poor audio quality from gear turntable gear usually is a result of either a dirty or worn stylus. It can also be too light or heavy tracking force in the adjustments of the turntable tone arm. If you can remove and check the tip of the stylus with a strong magnifier, a jewelers lens is best for this. Happy to talk with you about the problem. If this is not something you are able to do, then IU suggest replacing the stylus, check adjustments to the player.
Can you tell me what type of turntable you are using. Happy to help you more with this.

How do I hook up the receiver to the subwoofer to the tv


Here's the Owner's manual -> https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.paradigm.com%2Fdownloads%2FOM-100.pdf.
There are many ways to connect the system depending on your receiver's outputs and the speakers. Usually, the TV L/R output connects to one of the receiver's inputs. The receiver's preamp sub output goes to the powered subwoofer. The receiver's FL/C/FR/SL/SR/RL/RR speaker outputs go to the respective speakers.

Yes you need a RIAA preamplifier for magnetic phonograph cartridges. It connects between the turntable outputs and the AUX (or any other) input of your AV receiver. The only other way to make it work properly is to get a receiver or amplifier with a Phono input.

Why do my right speaker inputs cause fuzzy sound?


HI KYLE...

I think I have experienced this problem before with my Sony stereo set. It could be a sign that your receiver's amplifier is giving out. Best that you can do is bring it over to an audio repair shop for a checkup. If my suspicion is right, you're gonna have to replace it with a new one. Don't worry, amplifier chips are not that expensive.

And lastly, when any part or component is replaced, be sure to ask the technician to give it to you. You can keep it for your reference.

Hi I need some help with my Yamaha RX-V463. Im trying to connect my vinyl player, but not sure how to do it. can you help me?


There is no "Phono" input, you will need a "preamp" to make it work correctly. The preamp will add the grounding input loop that is missing on the receiver. depending on the quality of Phono you are looking to connect it to, will determine how much you may want to spend. They range in price from $25.00 to ........! Check Google shopping or EBAY. Hope this helps

Don't run anything but a TURNTABLE through Phono. That's the only labeled input that's literal. Use any other Line Level input for the CD.

If you don't have anything connected to the Tape loop, use the Tape In connectors.

Perhaps you should break this down into its TWO components:

1) Define the Phono source you're using. Is it an old-school turntable that REQUIRES a Phono Preamp conenction on the receiver to generate a useful level and quality of audio: or do you hae a new-age TT that can supply its own pre-amplified signal to ANY Line Level input; or do yuou have a newer-age USB TT that could connect directly to a PC via USB?

2) Anything that can connect to or pass through the receiver can be used as an input on a PC Sound Card via it's Microphone Input (if not via a specific analog or digital input). Run an RCA cable from the receiver's Tape_ or VCR-Out to an adapter that fits the Microphone Input if there is no RCA-style audio input.

Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner. Sounds ok i guess but is about a quarter to one third lower in volume. Is this normal ? Can I plug phono into cd jacks to check if any better ?


Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

Play phono - vinyl records


You need to purchase a phono preamp (about $20) and then the output of the preamp can be connected to any line level input on the receiver (tape, CD, DVD etc.)

Very low audio output


Make sure your receiver has a PHONO input. If you are connecting it to a LINE or AUX input, then there is not enough signal to boost the sound coming from the turntable. Turntables require a PHONO input, because phono input's have a pre-amp on them, which boost the turntable signal. If you do not have a PHONO input on your receiver, you will need to buy a Phono Pre-Amp.

If you have a phono input, then you might have an issue with the turntable's RCA cables, or your cartridge may be at fault.
