It was mentioned, and I misread it. Sorry for that. The first answer in mostly correct. The manufacture don't include a phono preamp, only jack that are rated for 300 millivolts. Your cartridge in your turntable produces approximately a 1/10 the voltage necessary. You will need an external phono preamp.

How old is my technics sh760 and can I connrct a turntable


As long as you have a dedicated pre-amp or phono input on the amplifier, then yes you can use your amplifier. If you don't and you plug it into a standard red and white via analog cables, you'll have a lovely plugged nose sound. Majority of the amplifiers you can purchase at FutureShop or Best Buy can accommodate a turntable as they(turntables) are a huge hit in todays market. Also you'll be able to have HDMI inputs, which is necessary as your old Receiver doesn't have it. Only if you plan on using it for video. If not, and your only purpose is for Audio. Go to town.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

How do i connect my home theater system so that i may use the speakers to here my cabel channels


Hi,
How to connect your cable to your home theater system depends on several factors. So what I'll do is try to cover all of them.
If your home theater RECEIVER has various types of inputs then there will be several ways to do it.
If your cable box has various types of outputs there will also be several ways to do this.
Let's start with the basics.
All cable boxes that I have seen have Red colored and White colored (RCA type) stereo outputs. This also applies to any stereo or Home theater system which will have multiple inputs of the same type and color. If you connect a cable between the cable box's Stereo Outputs and into the cable (or satellite audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Then Switch the Home theater input to the same input, that will work.

If the cable box has an coaxial digital output ORANGE "RCA" TYPE PLUG) and the receiver has the same, connect a single RCA connector between the two. Then go into the input menu of the receiver and change that to digital as opposed to analog. (The red and white ones)

If the two pieces, Receiver and Cable box have optical connectors (little black square door with a red light behind it). Use that and set up the Receiver to receive a digital audio input.
With either the coaxial or optical connections used. You will have full surround sound when it is being broadcast.

Another possibility is that the receiver has discrete RCA input connectors for Left and Right Front, Center, Left and Right Rear and Sub Woofer. Again, if the cable box has these, have at it.

The last one is really simple.
If your equipment is relatively new there will be an HDMI connector on the back of the Receiver. If there is one on the cable box, which often there is for HD cable. Get a single HDMI cable and connect the two together.

I think that is all I know about the subject.
It might be a good idea to print this little article I wrote for you and use it as a reference while looking at the back sides of your home theater receiver and cable box.
I hope I've been a help to you. Please let me know.
Best Regards,
Mark

Hi, I am having trouble connecting my Nintendo Wii to my Onkyo TX-SR507


Take the adapter cable from the Wii that plugs into the back of the Wii and converts the output(audio/video) into RCA style pin plugs, you will have: RED=right channel audio, plug it into any of the red audio INPUT on your Onkyo, then you will have WHITE=left channel audio, plug it into the other white INPUT jack next to the red plug on the Onkyo, then you will have YELLOW= video(picture) that will go directly to the yellow video INPUT on the back or side INPUTS of your TV.
Then when you want to play the Wii, set the input mode on the Onkyo to the inputs that you connected the red and white plugs into, then change the input on your TV to which ever the input is labeled on your TV in which you plugged the yellow plug into, you now will have sound comming from your Onkyo and the Wii up on the TV screen ready to play. Good luck!

Connect Onkyo CP-1020F Turntable to Theater System?


Yes. It needs to have Line Level (slightly amplified or pre-amp'd) before your home theatre system can 'hear' it.

Compatibility fo TV and Sound system


TV has audio outputs, the RCA cable type. If you connect the audio output (red,white) from the TV(look on the back), and connect the RCA cable to Input of home theater system,you should get TV sound from home theater system. You may have to set the audio on the TV for external source. Go to menu, to audio setup, to options. On the Home Theater system, you may have to select the audio source, i.e. audio input 1, etc.

Sounds is lower than it should be, possible short.


Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!
