Question about ION Audio iTTUSB Turntable
Have connected turntable and new Dell Vostro as per instructions. Cannot get sound even after following instructions on pink sheet included with turntable, the start guide general instructions and the troubleshooting tips. How do I get sound. Operating on Windows 7. Is that a problem?
Several people are having this trouble but most seem to work ok .. the unit has its own built in preamp and digital interface so, in this case, you dont have to worry about what cartridge it has .. in fact you can hook its rca outputs to the aux of an amplifier (not the phono input) .. or you can connect them to your amplified computer speakers thru an RCA sterio to 1/8 inch jack adapter ... i am working on a solution remotely since i dont have the unit yet ... but here is a suggestion (for xp) .. find the volume icon in the bottom right task bar .. double click on that .. that should bring up a box with several volume controls .. make sure none have "mute" checkmarked .. turn up all the controls so you cant miss anything if it comes thru ..try the table ... now click on "options" in that volume control box then "properties" then put a dot for "recording" .. select all of the volume controls in the bottom box .. now click ok .. that will give you some level controls for recording . turn them up ..then select them one at a time to see if any work (with table playing) .. if none of that works then there is likely an incompatability .. you might look for upgraded drivers for your audio card .. .. i will likely have more on this as i remotely get one working or if i can find one to play with .. maybe a few days .. some audio cards turn off sound outputs when you are in the record mode .. thats so you dont get screeching thru the mic input .. but there is usually a way to defeat that .. the units software should have done that for you .. i have found some popular laptops that horrably dont have sterio inputs (only monoral for the mic input) ... on a few that can be fixed with special software but on others (like my inspiron 6000) there is no hope ... i purchased an audio input adapter that connects to the USB port .. that gives you several analog inputs that are sterio .. your turn table's digital output doesnt need analog inputs so you are ok unless you want to use the RCA jacks as audio input ..

Is it only the turntable that does not have sound? If so it probably has a magnetic cartridge and only puts out 50mV. Is the input you are using a line input or is it a Mic input. If you only have a line input you may need to purchase a phono preamp. If it has a ceramic cartridge then it has 1V O/P so it should work on line input. Hope this helps.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.
BUT, modern turntables like your come with their own preamplifiers, so they MUST be connected to a garden variety Line Level input like AUX (anything BUT Phono or it will overload).
"LP DOCK also has a line-level output for connecting to any home stereo with an AUX input"
As far as WHY your amplifier isn't making da music, that could be whole 'nother problem.
We'd need more details about it and the speakers to go there.
