    Thanks for the reply, Im useing an Allen & Heath xone62, i think there is a problem with the cd recorder itself. There is a display on the front which gives you the sound balance and it only works on the right. When recording and playing back it will only play on 1 speaker if that makes sense.

Can you please update this with your connections. I assume that you are connecting the turntables to the mixer? Verify that the mixer is set to send out true stereo. What mixer are you using?
Note that most mixers "pan" all of the channels to the center sending out mono to the left and right. In most live shows, it makes no sense to send out true stereo. The left and right are for the speaker chains. In order to get true stereo out of the mixer, you wil need to pan the input channel for the left side all the way to the left and the input for the right channel to the right.

    Yep it sort of makes sense. What type of connectors are being used? The A&H usually send out using either XLR or 1/4" balanced. You may have to use a "y" cable to separate the 2 sides for input into the CD recorder. Double check the recorder inputs and types.

Where do I hook up the record player


That would depend on what type of outputs your record player has. If it only has RCA (white/black and red), simply choose one of the two RCA inputs. If it has optical or coaxial outputs, and you don't have another device you wish to use one of those, then those would be fine as well. Hope this helps!

I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling arrangement through the amplifier. I have not been able...


Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

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.

Can i use a turntable with the sony str dh500 model? I am illiterate when it comes to hooking this stuff up. Planning to purchase this model only if I can hook up my record player as well as my cd player.


This particular unit only has 2 line level inputs for audio devices. You can use 1 for the CD player and the other for the Turntable. Please note that you will need a phono pre-amp for the turntable as the inputs on the receiver are line level. The preamp will amplify the phono level to line level.

Turntable stylus not staying on record


Since there are no tonearm adjustments the only solution in the manual that comes close is to make sure the turntable is level. The other possibility is the no-brainer of checking the stylus cover is NOT rotated down, preventing the stylus from contacting the record.

A quick and dirty test of tonearm balance being too light would be to unplug the power and manually move the tonearm over the platter. Gently lower it to see if it floats in the air or lightly but firmly contacts the platter. That won't tell you if it is tracking properly but it might indicate or eliminate tracking force as the culprit.
