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

    Jerry,

    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!

    Respectfully,

    Corona King.

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.

I need to connect to a Marantz SR-19 a record player How do i do it


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.

Can I hook up a photo turntable to a sony str-de435 receiver? There aren't any jacks that specifically say phono, so I'm wondering if I can just hook it up to any of the audio jacks without any problem....


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!

Hooking up Turntable to Yahama HTR-5660


you have to have a pre amp, or an old reciever with a phono input.

you dont have to use the aux input, the cd or md-cdr inputs will be fine, but you do need that preamp for that reciever

I purchused a turntable and tried hooking it up to my A/V receiver and nothing is working. any advice on how i can get this to work?


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.

No Phono setting?


Hi dtrain

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 to here and get one online starting at around $30 plus delivery.

good luck, happy turntabling:)

Poor sound


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. http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html
