What do I need regarding preamp/cartridge matching?


Cartridges require no special pre-amp. If your amp has one built in the sound from the deck will come out at the same level as other functions. If the amp has no inbuilt pre-amp you will still hear sound (if the cartridge is working) only the volume will be too low to listen to. All you need do is connect the record player to the amp and see if you can hear the sound. If you can't then you need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. By the way if you need a new cartridge you don't have to stick with a Gemini make. You can use any one you want as long as it will fit into the headshell. There some better makes of cartridge out there, that will give better sound quality. It all depends on what you want to spend on a cartridge!

Hello. Just bought a pl990 and trying to connect it to creative speakers for the meantime. Im using a female rca plug but the sound wont come out in the speakers, nor is it working on my pyramat chair or...


The problem is that the output signal from a phono cartridge is very low. A turntable is meant to be plugged into a receiver or amplifier with a turntable input designed for that level. An auxiliary input on an amp is made for a higher "line-level" input. To use a turntable with a line-level input you need a preamp (here's a typical model at Amazon.com) to boost the signal to the amplifier. Then you'll be able to play your records and hear them.

I have tried too hook up my Gemini XL-500, to a Sony Digital Audio DTS discrete 6ch Amp , but get very low volume, tuner & cd dvd, volume is fine, does this have anything to do with the ground?...


No! The amp must have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to increase the sound level. If it has one it will say "phono" on the inputs on the back and have a "turntable" - or "Phono" selector switch. If it doesn't have one (many new surround amps don't) you won't be able to play it properly untill you get a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp". This will make the signal loud enough to be used on a normal aux imput of the Sony.

Have linked it up to my normal surround hi fi system but no sound. No sound either when connected to my pc.


You asked this question in the TTUSB category. Do you have that turntable and how are you connecting it to the surround sound?

The turntable has a USB port and corresponding EZ Vinyl software that lets you monitor the output of the turntable. Then you can connect the computer sound card to speakers to hear what is playing.

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.
