No volume control

I have recently purchased a turntable and tried to run it from the AUX connection on my Sound Space 8 system. My problem is that I cannot adjust the volume. Why is this happening and what do I need to do to gain volume control. Phil

HI Phil...

The AUX input will not work with a turntable.
The turntable needs a pre-amp before you connect into the Soundspace.

Try for a pre-amp

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume

You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

I just purchased a used Sony turntable PS LX 160H & am hooking it u Sony surround sound amp (there is no phono input but am using audio input) and getting sound but very low volume at max volume... How...

Just look around the web for a "Magnetic Cartridge Preamp".
You plug your turntable into this and the preamp in an aux socket of Surround Amp and the sound will be the same level as the other devices.

I just bought a pioneer pl-200 turntable at a flea market. I plugged it into an old am/fm/8-track amp's phono input and I know the amp cranks on fm but on phono, it's very low sound. It does get louder...

Turntable signal outputs are very, very low amplitude and either have to pass through a pre-amp before being connected to an amplifiers "ordinary" inputs (e.g. aux), or connect to an amplifier's specific turntable input in order to give the "normal" levels of volume.
This is because the cartridge (the bit that has the stylus or needle on it) can only generate very small amplitude signals.
As turntables are now outdated, a lot of amps no longer have a turntable input any more.
Unless you can also find a cheap pre-amp or an old amp with a turntable input, you may have wasted your money.

Very low sound comming out pioneer pl300

Hi Jack.

Just confirm that it is plugged into a PHONO input (designed for turntables) Cannot use AUX/TAPE etc type inputs. If not, you will need an RIAA preamp from local electronics/Audio store. If that is OK, then try replace stylus first and the cartridge (may be just easier to do both same time). No volume control in turntables and it can only be 3 things (generally) Input, stylus, cartridge

Best of luck

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

Little and poor quality sound from turntable

Turntables do not produce "line level" audio which is what is required for input into the AUX on the receiver. If you do not have a phono input on the receiver, you must purchase a phono pre-amp. These are readily available for about $20. This will boost the output of the turntable to line level so you can use the AUX input on your receiver. That will resolve the problem.

No Volume For My Music Hall MMF-5 Turtable

You will need to obtain a phono preamp to connect between the deck and the amplifier. I do not think this turntable is fitted with its own preamp - check the User Guide.

Stereo volume doesn't effect Aux input volume

in a car stereo system, when you select line input, it usually assumes the device you are connecting has its own volume control. if you really want to use your cars volume knob, an FM transmitter might do the trick.
