It is not just the cable, it is the signal out from turntable that is dangerous from your phone. If you connect the turntable straight to your phone using the turntaple regular audio output, you have a good chance to blow your phone, because of the phone input impedence.

Your turntable should have an headphones jack plug output. You can build a cable to connect from turntable headphones out to your phone. This should be quite safe.
An alternative is to pass turntable signal through a computer and connecting the computer output to your phone.

    Use your phone headphones cable if you can. For example Sony ericcson have a phone jack adapter , ending with a female, if your phone do have such a cable then use that one, otherwise cannibalize a pair of headphones for your phone and build the cable. The preamped signal from your headphones jack should not be dangerous, his maximum power is far less that any amplified signal coming from the finals .

I can not hear what is being recorded to my pc from my ion turn table but I can hear the playback after


Probably something to do with the control panel of your computer sound system. You might have got one of the controls turned down or switched off.

Sounds like it is going into protect. This is usually caused by a problem in the amplifier section. I would start by making sure none of the output transistors are shorted.

Distorted recording and loud


If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?

From the manual....

2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input.

Sherwood model RV 5050r - tuner is not holding radio frequencys in memory when the main switch is turned OFF and ON again. Is there a battery that needs replacing or a chip?


Try looking for one of these Memory Retention Capacitors, they cause a lot of trouble like that. It will be in the tuner section somewhere if it uses one. It could look a bit different to this one, so bare that in mind.

Maybe the output is not good enough for line in on laptop try mic in, then double click the sound icon down bottom right where time is, goto options, properties, then recording inside of recording make sure all boxes are ticked so you have all options like mic wave stereo mix line and so on, click ok, now make sure what ever you have the turn tables pluged into is selected as your recording device and not muted try again, once this is all ok ., it should work. hope this helps. also make sure your software you use to record is also set up same. take care

Sherwood RX 4105 no input for a turn table


Check for a line level switch on the turn table, it may be under the turn table itself lift the rubber mat and spin the table by hand, it may not have one or it could be on the back.
You can buy a phono amp that will boost the phono signal. Check at Radio Shack or google it.

I am trying to hook a turntable to RXV363 amplifier. The RXV363 does not have RCA jack inputs labeled for a turntable. I tried using the DVD and DVR Input. I think the problem is there is no an adequate...


You need a phono pre amp to plug onto the phono leads of your turn table then into any input on the amp.A Turntable has a much lower output than cd or any other device so needs to be boosted,when you pluged it in I bet the sound was awfull.Buy the best phono stage you can .
hope this helps.
