Hi, I don't think the amplifier has a mm/mc phono stage, I think it's an optional item.

You can buy one pretty cheap.
If you need more help , please ask

I have a Yamaha RV-V450 receiver. Where can I hook up my turntable. I have tried many different options. I can hear very faintly the record playing but only after turning the volume up. I am having trouble...


Turntables generally do not have a strong enough signal to drive an amplifier. You can check on the back of your turntable and see if it has a switch to change from phono to line level. Most do not, but a few will.

If your turntable does not have this switch, you will need to purchase a phono amplifier to boost the signal to standard line level. You can get these on ebay for around $15.

You connect the turntable to the phono amp input and then connect the phono amp output to any of the inputs on the back of your receiver (aux, cd, etc).

When I plug in my marantz TT-42 turntable to my Yamaha R-S300 receiver's phono input, I get a muddy and loud sound. I've tested the turntable with direct input to Bose speakers and it works fine.


If the turntable produces good sound with a line level input on another system, you have the turntable with the pre amp built in. That is why the sound is loud and distorted.

Want to know if it is possible to hear a record player through the AUX plug out? since my Yamaha RX-V396 receiver doesn't have a phono plug out


hi,
Only you can hear the record player through the aux of your amp if the record player comes with built in phono preamp. If not you need a phono preamp between the record player and amp or an amp which have a phono input. Phono preamp is available in the open market.

How do I connect my record player to my Yamaha HTR-3063 receiver to get audio


Since the Yam lacks a PHONO input...

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.


If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Audio 1 or 2.


eBay always has some... http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3984.m570.l1311&_nkw=phono+preamp&_sacat=See-All-Categories

If your TT has a prwamp, that makes it a Line Level device so jack it into Audo 1 or 2. Check the TT's settings to make sure it is putting out at the Line Level.

How to connect a record player to Pioneer


If there are no specific phono inputs, then a phono pre-amp must be purchased. These usually cost around $20. This pre-amp will boost the signal level to that of a CD player or tape deck so that either a tape input or aux input can be used. Once you have the pre-amp, just connect its output to an open input on the receiver.

I get no sound when connected to CD connection


if there is no phono input,you need a pre amp to drive it.the record player puts out 5 mv from the cartridge.
a cd player is 800 mv to one volt output.
the turntable can not drive the cd input.
a phono pre amp also has a 60db gain from 20hz to 1khz to offset the -60 db curve when records are made to reduce the groove modulation.
without the bass attenuation,record grooves would have to swing 4" for bass notes.
google RIAA equalization curve for a description.

Pre amps


IF your amp has a phono input, you need nothing special. If all you have is aux inputs or an extra tape input, you need a phono pre-amp that will increase the signal level to that of a cd player or tape player. These are simple pre-amps that cost around $20.

Volume turned to MAX for almost no sound from record player


You will need to purchase small box that converts your phono magnetic cartridge level output to a higher line input level before it goes into the TV input jack. Radio Shack used to sell a small amp for about $20 that was made just for that purpose and was called a stereo pre-amplifier and was model number SPA-50 and it plugged into the standard wall outlet to get power. Back in the "old" days when phono magnetic cartridges first became popular some of the older home stereos had only the ceramic phono style inputs (or an aux. input) which were about the same input level as a tape input or aux. input (or TV input) and so you would have to use one of these adapters to boost the newer magnetic cartridge signal up to the same level as a ceramic cartridge in order to use a new style of phono. This will fix your problem if you can find one at Radio Shack or some other place, perhaps on the internet. Hope this helps you.
