In theory as long as you have a sound card installed, yes you can connect your turntable direct to your computer simply by connecting it to the audio input.

You will probably need a patch lead with twin line phono connectors on one end and a stereo 3.5mm jack plug on the other end.

Please note, the turntable or phono inputs on amplifiers are unlike all the other inputs, because they have a particular frequency response tailored for use with a headshell cartridge.

If you connect your turntable to an input that has not been tailored to the RIAA response curve, it will sound tinny. This is what probably happens when you connect to your computer. The input may also not be sensitive enough.

You may be able to adjust the frequency response if your sound card includes an equaliser. Alternatively, you may be able to download some audio software that will allow you to equalise your turntable.

All in all though, I'm sorry to say you would be better off with an outboard preamp.

3 wires were taken off the turntable Sharp


The RCA plugs are the Right (red) and Left (white) sound channels.
The 3 thin wires are the power connect. It's likely this will only fit one way into the unit, unless you have broken or cut of the connector. One wire will then be the + wire (under 12volts DC) the other - wire and the other earth. As long as the wires don't touch each other all that will have is the turntable will go backwards if the - wire is connected to the plus terminal.
The phono plugs reversed will simply switch the left sound coming out of the right channel etc...

What, no manual? WHAT Main Unit? You're not telling us anything we can use. Details IN = Details Out.

Join http://www.vinylengine.com/ for free and get the manual.

This is an old school turntable so it requires a Phono Pre4amp either separately or built into your 'Main Unit". It will be labeled explicitly "PHONO".

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

My Pioneer PL-990 Turntable only outputs sound through the white wire. Only a quiet buzz comes through the red wire.


The red wire is the right channel, so going back to your amp, get a single phono plug with with the wire exposed, so you can touch the wire. Then remove the turntable connections. With the amp on plug the the lose wire plug into each channel and check if the sound on the right is still low. If it is then there's a problem with the magnetic cartridge pre-amp inside the amp. They are often located near the phono socket on a seperate PC board, but if not just follow the red wire to the main board. Chances are it will be an IC that's failed.
If it has a strong buzz at the back of the amp. Then I should replace the wire between the turntable and the amp. Or the right phono plug that connects to the amp.

Can I hook up a photo turntable to a sony str-de435 receiver? There aren't any jacks that specifically say phono, so I'm wondering if I can just hook it up to any of the audio jacks without any problem....


If your turntable has an amplified output, go ahead and plug it in to the aux port. If not, you won't be able to use it with your receiver properly. Look on the back (or front) of your turntable for a knob labeled "level" or "volume", and that will determine if it's amplified or not. Good luck, I hope this helps!
