Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Wondering if theres any way to plug in the red and whites from a turntable right into the back of my hp 7590 without any amplification source such as a mixer or pre amp.
i seem to be having trouble getting sound i really really dont want to have to buy anymore equip. i just purchased alot it was a long night and im brain dead so your help will be appricated.
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.
