IF your amp has a phono input, you need nothing special. If all you have is aux inputs or an extra tape input, you need a phono pre-amp that will increase the signal level to that of a cd player or tape player. These are simple pre-amps that cost around $20.

    Most electronics stores have them. Yes, they are called phono pre-amps. Try mcmelectronics.com. I know that they have them.

Do I need to connect my older Fisher Turntable to a pre-amp before connecting to my Yamaha RX-V850?


No, you don't need a preamp if your turntable has a moving-magnet (MM) cartridge, it should work as-is! Happy vinyling =]

Using turntable (audio technica at-lp 120) with built in pre amp the sound is distorted and broken up. the turntable requests phono turned on to use. Does the receiver have a pre amp or boost signal...


A turn table produces sound voltage in the millivolt range. If you have it connected to a receiver that has a phono input and the turn table is pre-amplified, you are overdriving the receiver and it is clipping the audio and making it sound bad.

Can I connect a turntable to my Sony mhc nx3av system which I got 12/13 years ago and it is great. Will it be accessed via the MD option? And must I get a turntable with a pre-amp? Thanks in...


YES, you can not only connect a turntable but also a VCR or DVD player or other analog audio sources using either of the top two RCA INPUT jacks on your unit. Now, for a turntable, you will need to buy a pre-amp because typically a turntable provides too low a signal level for most components to handle. These pre-amps cost $35 and up. Most turntables do not provide a pre-amp. Usually an amplifier or receiver will contain the pre-amp and have PHONO inputs specifically for a turntable. So you are correct, you need a pre-amp of some kind. Be sure to select the inputs on your Sony where you connected the turntable when you want to play records. Hope this helps.

Lack of signal to amp on turntable


You need to get a pre amp for your turntable. The 5740 does not have one built in. Not to worry, they are actually inexpensive! Google pre amp or turntable pre amp & you will find lots of good units that will do the trick for 25-45. They also give you an input ground to get rid of that lovely turntable humm. Hope this helps

Hooking up Turntable to Yahama HTR-5660


you have to have a pre amp, or an old reciever with a phono input.

you dont have to use the aux input, the cd or md-cdr inputs will be fine, but you do need that preamp for that reciever

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

Turntable connection


Yes, you'll need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and then connect the turntable to the pre-amp, and the pre-amp to the LINE INPUT of your receiver.
