Question about Denon AVR-4800 Receiver

1 Answer

I pressed the T. Tone button and all speakers are working fine. But i have an iPod plugged up to the "Phono" inputs, and the sound is only coming throught the center speaker, and it is very muffled and a little fuzzy. I also have to turn it up quite abit to even hear the music.

Don't use the phono input. That is designed for a specific signal coming from a record player. Use the CD or Tape input.

My receiver works fine when I plug my iPod into it, but when I plug my turntable in I can't get any sound. Any idea?


The phono cartridge on your turntable puts out a much lower level signal than your iPod. Back when turntables were popular, all receivers had a special phono input to take care of that. Your modern HK receiver does not have a phono input, so you need to get an external phono preamp. Plug the turntable outputs into the phono preamp inputs, then plug the phono preamp outputs into one of the audio inputs on the HK, like where you connected the iPod.

Hello. Just bought a pl990 and trying to connect it to creative speakers for the meantime. Im using a female rca plug but the sound wont come out in the speakers, nor is it working on my pyramat chair or...


The problem is that the output signal from a phono cartridge is very low. A turntable is meant to be plugged into a receiver or amplifier with a turntable input designed for that level. An auxiliary input on an amp is made for a higher "line-level" input. To use a turntable with a line-level input you need a preamp (here's a typical model at Amazon.com) to boost the signal to the amplifier. Then you'll be able to play your records and hear them.

I hooked up the ion LP Dock to an analogue amplifier (which is hooked up to my LCD tv and outputs the sound through some bookshelf speakers) via the Phono input connections as per the instruction manual...


"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.

Half the signal only through left speaker


Try the switch in the other position and see if that fixes the problem. some turntables had a phono level that is different than a standard rca line level input. Also try a different cable if the rca is not hardwired in to the turntable. The cable could be bad. If worse comes to worse upgrade to another amplifier or tuner that has a separate phono input. hope that helps.

Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner. Sounds ok i guess but is about a quarter to one third lower in volume. Is this normal ? Can I plug phono into cd jacks to check if any better ?


Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

Regards,

Dave

IPOD hook up to receiver


The problem is the phono hookup, which is not a standard line-level input. Phono is only appropriate for a turntable (record player)


Plug the ipod into any other input, and you'll be all set.

If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!

Ipod input for sa-eh760


You can plug the Ipod into the mic input , to do test recording. But the result wont be great.

To listen the Ipod in your stereo you should plug the Ipod into the Auxiliary input on the stereo.

Naturally you do not need any dvd.

Here is the adapter: 1.5M 3.5mm Male to Male AV Audio RCA Y Adapter

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.
