Either get a self-pre-amplified phono or an old school one connected to the PHONO section of old school electronics.

Phono input only plays one speaker and receiver shuts down after playing record for a few minutes


are you using a phonograph with a built-in preamp? If so, then you need to hook it up to a different input. Phono input is only for non-amplifier phonographs, otherwise you will over-drive the amp.

Where can i obtain a realistic 32-1200 manual for free? or what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean?


In reference to the question -
" what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean? "
these jacks are for the input of phonograph record cartridge signals.
Phonograph cartridges are of two types -
1. "Cera"mic (ceramic) cartridges generate their signal using a ceramic crystal which provides almost 1/2 a volt of current.
2. "Mag"netic (magnetic) cartridges generate a more accurate signal than a ceramic cartridge but the magnetic cartridge generates its signal using a moving-magnet mechanism (rather than a ceramic crystal) and the magnetic cartridge generates much less current than a ceramic cartridge, so its signal needs a lot more amplification than a ceramic crystal's output. So the two jacks on the back of the mixer provide different levels of amplification for the phono cartridges, less amplification for a ceramic cartridge and more amplification for a magnetic cartridge.
Since few people play phonograph records any more it is understandable that the public has little knowledge of the differences between ceramic and magnetic cartridges. But each have their own benefits and usually ceramic cartridges are cheaper than magnetic cartridges simply because it takes a lot more sophisticated manufacturing technology to make a magnetic cartridge, though magnetics are usually preferred over ceramics because of their more accurate generation of a signal from the wiggling groove in a phonograph record. But for those who can hear, the complete sound signal from a phonograph record is much preferred over the dead and dry sampled sound from a digital CD. And the old 1/4" reel-to-reel tape recordings are the highest sound quality of all because they are direct copies of the original magnetic tape masters with no digitizing at all. The fullness of their sound is astounding compared to any digitized signal..
A mag input is down at the mic level.
A ceramic input is almost up at the line level.

How does one get the phonograph to work? I can't find the manual and I can't get the phonograph to start rotating.


if you have it plugged into the power source,and cannot see an on/off switch, it may well start up by moving the arm onto the record

Trouble recording records


When recording from a phonograph, I use the following items.

Depending on the phonograph whether or not it's MC or MM makes a difference in sound although most can't tell the difference. Also, you need to know if your phonograph requires a pre-pre amp or if that pre-pre amp is built in and the line coming out is at line level. The Rolls item is a pre-pre amp unit which takes to older phonographs signal level to that of input levels which allow the phonograph to be connected to any aux line in.

On the back of the computer, you can plug the RCA jacks from the phonograph into the adapter and directly into your computer via the MIC (usually pink) input. Most of the time this is sufficient. If the volume is too loud, or sounds horrible, chances are you have a pre-pre amp and you then plug it into the line in (usually blue)

First I would connect the RCA's from the phonograph to the adapter and plug it into the mic and see how the sound is.

Keep in mind that you do not use the ROLLs unit when connecting this way. If it's too loud or distorted, plug it into the line in.

For recording, you can download Audacity which is free and a wonderful editing program.
