Question about JVC Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I just picked up a used QL-A2 Direct Drive turntable. It sounded fine when I got it. But now that I got it home, and hooked up to my receiver (I tried two receivers, same problem with both), the volume is suuuuper low. Any suggestions?

Hi clausjones

You will need to have a Phono preamp connected in line if you are plugging it straight into a new millennium amp. the output of the turntable is about 100 times lower than a CD player, and need RIAA equalisation for it to sound any good. They don't include them anymore. Good thing is you can get an outboard preamp to do the job. Go here for units starting at $30

Can you use the AUX input to connect to L and R RCA line out from a turntable ?


it depends on the turntable. If it is an older turntable, then it will not have a built-in preamp and will output too low a signal level for the receiver to use. If it is a newer turntable with a preamp, then it should work just fine

I've hooked up speakers to my PT 2410 turntable and i get no sound. Is there something missing or am I doing it wrong.


Speakers direct to a turntable? Was that in the manual? I'd think some electronics with amplifiers and volume controls might be useful.

Technics SL - 110R recoed deck screeches after playing for 5 mins - may need a new band? can anyone advise who could supply and repair it?


A drive belt would effect the speed of the player not its quality. Also, I believe that the model you posted is a direct drive unit which would not have a belt. There is something else going on here. It is possible that the cartridge has a problem. This could explain the sound you are hearing. It soulc also be within the receiver that you are using. I would suspect a problem with the receiver before the turntable. The Phono input at the receiver has an extra stage of amplification that can be failing. I would try the turntable on another receiver first.

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver


The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?


The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

Turntable


Hi Harpwailer,

I was unable to locate an owner's manual for VSX-D412 on the Pioneer website. I did find a VSX-D411, which I believe is very similar. Since there are no turntable jacks, I would try any set of open analog (RCA cable, like the ones that come out of your turntable and are probably red and white) jacks. Just plug the red cable into the red input jack, and the white into the white. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure that you use the input jacks, since some components (like tape decks) have input and output jacks, so that you can record to/from them.

This will work fine assuming that the output from your turntable is strong enough. Many turntables are designed to go through a pre-amp circuit; if this is the case with yours, you'll know it since the output volume will be very low, even when turned up very high. If this is the case, you'll need to purchase a pre-amp to put in the circuit between your turntable and the receiver, or else buy another turntable that outputs at a higher level (they can still be had rather inexpensively, surprisingly enough!). Also, you'll probably have a ground wire coming out from your turntable as well. You'll need to hook it to a chassis screw on the amp to prevent an electrical hum from being picked up and output through your speakers.

I hope this helps, and good luck listening to your vinyl. If you deem it appropriate, I would appreciate a rating on the help I have provided. Thanks!

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

No Sound from Turntable


It definitely has to go through a preamp (a PHONO preamp that is...) something like this: http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html

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
