Hi dtrain

Phono preamps are are considered to be a thing of the past by most main stream manufacturers, so they leave them out of modern amps... supposedly saving some expense in manufacture also. -the i generation mostly dont even know what vinyl is ... poor souls. The good news is you can get decent "bolt on" preamps to listen to your favourite records. It plugs in line with your turntable and aux input on your amp, and generally uses an external power source. you can go to here and get one online starting at around $30 plus delivery.

good luck, happy turntabling:)

regards
Graeme

Can i play records through my sherwood rd6108 receiver? When i try to play a record i get no sound no matter which channel i use.


Record players require a PHONO input on an amp.
Most amps no longer have this, so you will need to source out a pre-amp for the record player, and then you can plug the record player into the pre-amp and then hook the pre-amp into a tape, DVD or AUX input.

How do i connect technics turntable model SL-QD33 to technics stereo model SC-DV290 and what do i need to switch to on stereo to play records.


Have a look on the back input panel of the sc-dv290. Check for a "PHONO" input. If there is no phono input it will not play turntable. If there is: then plug it the turntable in and switch the SC-DV290 to PHONO mode.
Another way would be to purchase a "phono preamplifier" from ebay: Hook the turntable into the phono preamplifier, and the preamplifer into the SC-DV290 AUX input.

I need to connect to a Marantz SR-19 a record player How do i do it


On the back of the receiver there are connections, usually record player should be hooked up on Phono slot. If Phono is not available, trying using Aux or another slot that isn't being used. After hooking it up, remember the place you hooked it up, turn on the turntable, play a record, then hit the button on the receiver where the turntable is hooked up.

IPOD hook up to receiver


The problem is the phono hookup, which is not a standard line-level input. Phono is only appropriate for a turntable (record player)


Plug the ipod into any other input, and you'll be all set.

If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!

Very poor sound when i play my record player


What kind of record player? Most modern equipment doesn't have a phono preamp to boost the minute signal produced from the phono cartridge to a Line level so guess what, they don't play phono correctly.

How can I connect my CD-RW880 recorder to the


Make sure the phonograph is connected to the Phono Connectors. Hook up your CD recorder to the tape. The play connectors on the CD recorders can connect to the tape play connectors on your stereo. The record connectors on your CD recorder connect to the record outputs on the tape connectors on your stereo. You can also connect you CD recorder to the VCR connectors if you are using an audio tape as your source. All of the outputs and inputs are the same level except the phono.

How to hook up a dvd recorder with HTS6500/37?


Suddenly had this problem. My Phillips is hooked up to TV and to Cable Box. When I inserted a DVD it would return a "no disc" but it would read and play CDs. After a call to Phillips...who said that they had no idea what was going on and I should take it in for service...it was 4 months out of warranty. Repair company said it was not worth the repair costs ($200) so I should try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc. I bought a Maxell. It has a set of little brushes on the bottom of the disc. I inserted it and played track 2 for 20 seconds as instructed and voila! It began reading the DVDs again. I was only out the $10 for the disc cleaner. If you have this problem, try the disc cleaner first as it might be the fix.

Unable to to dub from the radio, phono,or cd


As far as I know, you need to press Record button to record from external source. If you press Dub, it will start Dubbing from Tape-A to Tape-B. You might be need to press Record and later press Pause or Play to start recording.

Hooking up a turntable to a JVC XM-J50 Via AUX port.


You need a phono pre-amp for magnetic cartridge. This will amplify the magnetic cartridge output from its low level to line level which is required for your amplifier.

This can be bought at most audio-file type distributors and stores. There are different quality levels in these depending on how much you want to pay.
