Hooking up a turntable to a JVC XM-J50 Via AUX port.
I was wondering what I would have to do to hook up a turntable to my shelf system using the AUX port. I tried running it directly to the ports, and it will play, but it plays extreemly LOW! Am I missing another component, or am I doing somthing wrong here? I went to radio shack and purchased some Stereo audio cables (2 phono plugs to 2 phono plugs) and am wondering if maybe it might be the cables I used. Or am I missing some other audio component that the turntable has to be plugged in BEFORE it can be plugged into the aaux ports on my shelf system? Can anyone help me? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and patience

You'll need a phono pre amp and then you can connect to aux inputs. http://www.google.com/search?q=phono+pre+amp&rlz=1C1CHMO_enUS514US515&aq=f&oq=phono+pre+amp&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=phono+pre+amp&hl=en&tbo=u&rlz=1C1CHMO_enUS514US515&source=univ&tbm=shop&sa=X&ei=Kv_2UMatJoOc9QSDr4CoAg&ved=0CGQQsxg&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.41018144,d.eWU&fp=a656d84bcd78ba72&biw=1360&bih=643
On the back of the receiver there are connections, usually record player should be hooked up on Phono slot. If Phono is not available, trying using Aux or another slot that isn't being used. After hooking it up, remember the place you hooked it up, turn on the turntable, play a record, then hit the button on the receiver where the turntable is hooked up.
If your turntable has an amplified output, go ahead and plug it in to the aux port. If not, you won't be able to use it with your receiver properly. Look on the back (or front) of your turntable for a knob labeled "level" or "volume", and that will determine if it's amplified or not. Good luck, I hope this helps!
Turntables have extremely low outputs and require a phono input on the receiver. If yours does not have one, you need to purchase a phono pre-amp. This will boost the signal to the level required for any aux or tape input on a receiver.
Phono preamps are are considered to be a thing of the past by most main stream manufacturers, so they leave them out of modern amps... supposedly saving some expense in manufacture also. -the i generation mostly dont even know what vinyl is ... poor souls. The good news is you can get decent "bolt on" preamps to listen to your favourite records. It plugs in line with your turntable and aux input on your amp, and generally uses an external power source. you can go tohere and get one online starting at around $30 plus delivery.
You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input.
The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack.
I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you.
