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

    This is Corona King again. I received your answer and would like to thank you for taking the time to help me out. (Thank you). I think I understood what you was telling me, but I need clarification on one thing: Do I need anything else other than the device you mentioned? Because what I was doing was hooking up the turntable DIRECTLY to AUX ports of the JVC MX-J50 without an amp to start with? Would the device you mentioned take the place of the amp itself? Because you mentioned an AMPLIFIER, but other than the system itself, I am NOT hooked up to any amp. Let me know if I'm going to need an amp on top of the device you mentioned. I really do appreciate your help my friend. Thank you for your time and patience!

You need a phono pre-amp for magnetic cartridge. This will amplify the magnetic cartridge output from its low level to line level which is required for your amplifier.

This can be bought at most audio-file type distributors and stores. There are different quality levels in these depending on how much you want to pay.

Can we connect a turntable through the AUX port?

Yes, but you will need to pass it through a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp first. Unless the turntable uses a Ceramic Cartridge. In which case it can be plugged straight in.

I have jvc compact componentsystem model hxz 77d

Well you use the wrong topic. I assume you want sound via your aux-input to come out of your little system. Then you need the turntable to be on consumerlinelevel , so you need to buy a pre-amp which comes between your turtntable PHONO-output and connect the tt(turntable) output first to the input and then use the output from the Pre-amp to go to the aux in. Don't do a thing if you hdave a higly expensive turntable.

How to hook up my pc's audio to rca rs3531 to

In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.
Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level (AUX in your case) input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

We are in the basement and the radio dont play, the disk dus play wonderful

Have you hooked up the supplied Loop antenna to the back of the unit (Looks like a black plastic hoop, with coils of wire around it, and a doublestranded wire coming off it). Most system come with this item. Just put the bared ends of the antenna wire in the proper spots on the rear of the unit.
Generally having the antenna itself higher up and closer to a window/away from major obstacles will give you the best reception.
Hope this helps,

Troubleshoot auxiliary equipment

There is no Phono input on your JVC.

What TT are you trying to hook up? If it's a traditional one you would need a preamplifier to boost the tiny signal from the cartridge to a suitable level for the AUX to use.

If you have an old traditional receiver with a Phono section hanging around you could rig something up between it and your JVC.

Plug the TT into Phono on the old receiver. Run RCA cables from any Tape REC output to the AUX. Done.
