Question about Stanton STR8-100 Turntable

1 Answer

I want to try to convert lp's to digital - my str8 100 ttbl says "digital" on it and has a plug on the back for a male RCA jack, but no instructions as to how to do this conversion. Is there a patch at Radio Shack or somewhere to directly connect the ttbl to my computer, or do I need some sort of extra device to make the connection. Do I need to buy or download any of the dozens of software programs offered on-line to do this? Keith

Your TT has several ways of sending output to different devices:

1. Standard RIAA Phono Output for use by a receiver or preamp that is equipped with a specific Phono input (switch on back set to Phono).

2. Same cables, but with the switch on the back set to Line. Will attach to any standard analog audio Line Level input such as AUX, CD, whatever.

3. That single RCA connector is an S/PDIF digital audio output. Use it to attach this TT (like any other digital audio device) to any S/PDIF-compatible device like an AVR receiver that lacks a specific PHONO input; or to a CD-Recorder.

The manual:

My advice:

PC/MP3/other digital end product:

I presume your PC is the eventual target of your digitized LP's. If you use the digital output of the TT you are doing one analog to digital conversion internally. Any further processing, like ripping to MP3 or some other format, will introduce digital anomolies that will degrade the sound. So I would recommend using the analog output up to the point at which you want your final digital copy.

Your PC may or may not have the S/PDIF Input required. Mostly these are found only on advanced soundcards. If you do have one it probably came with a suite of software to manage it so you may not need any other software or connectors.

If you have just basic analog PC audio (typically Green 1/8" OUTputs, maybe NO specific INputs) you'll have to get creative and use the microphone input. Get an adapter at Radio Shack to convert the paired RCA male to a single 1/8"stereo male. Then find your audio controls on the PC and enable microphone and turn up the volume. Disable any special modifications it might have.

I have an outboard audio CD recorder, so what I would do if I was preserving vinyl would be to copy the LP's to a CD so they would never need to endure another wearing pass of the stylus. Then I run them through a series of analog sound processors to enhance, noise-reduce and equalize the final prouduct to another CD. Then I rip that final version to mp3 at 256kb.

There are numerous audio software products that can do all of that out there but they usually come bundled with high-end soundcard. I personally do not use any PC-based sound processing.

Trying to get hook up with AUVIO wireless headphones to SONY TV MODEL KDL-40W600B. If not AUVIO then my Beats pill. Goal to have TV sound in/on bed close to me. Beats pill Blootooth


Jean,
I take it the Auvio wireless headphone main base has both dual rca and optical in jacks? If so, what you need is a 3.5mm stereo male to 2 rca male cable. You will plug in the 3.5mm male plug into the green audio out/headphone jack port that should be on the back/left rear side of your TV. Then you will plug the dual rca plugs of the cable into the Auvio rca inputs. You can get the cables in various lengths so you can have the Auvio base in a good location. If you need a visual of the cable type: http://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021815&p_id=5598&seq=1&format=2
Hope this helps:)

How do i connect marantz rs2252. To tv


Do you have an audio out or headphone jack on the TV? If not you'll need a digital TV tuner converter box that does. If you remember, these are the "digital conversion" boxes the government provided when the USA switched from analog to digital TV. They sell for $50 - $60, have a input for TV system (antenna, cable, etc) and analog outputs that will connect to your Marantz via the "Aux" input. Purchase shielded "RCA male to RCA male" connection cables at Radio Shack, connect "Audio Out" from converter box to "Aux In" on Marantz and you're done.

How to play ipod on koss progressive scan


Take a look at the inputs on the DVD player. If it has an AUX input (looks like a headphone jack) you may be able to connect with a male to male 3.5mm headphone jack. Otherwise you could use a converter that goes from headphone jack to RCA (Red, White, Yellow)

I have Radioshack wireless headphones with a 30 foot range. I cannot hook them up to my new Panasonic Viera 42 inch HD T.V. - The "audio outlet" is a square and the headphones only have red and...


hi there.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector.  It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT.  Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections.  The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.

The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket.  a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head.  It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.

 

In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks. 

 

If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.

If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.

 

With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".

 

I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.

 

 

 

You will either need this :

Sometimes the colours of connectors vary.  Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side)  and White to White or Black To White  or Black To Black (for left)

I need the audio cable that hooks the dvd/vcr player to the subwoofer


your player output is RCA connection and your subwoofer since you didn't mention it i think its a mini jack connector or BB plug connector...so you have to costumize for that cable... or u will buy a RCA cable in the market then buy a coonector that will convert your BB plug in your subwoofer to RCA... i

what i mean is this... from your player put a RCA coonecotr it is 2 wires in your subwoofer its output is BB plug so you have to buy a connector that will make your BB plug become a RCA male...in your RCA cable from your player its output is RCA male so again convert it to RCA female connector to so that you can connect it

Connecting BA735 digital 3.5mm plug with S/PDIF coax jack


The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.

Trying to sort aux-in


Hi,
as you do not mention the model I have to guess that your player has a aux-in on phono (or RCA) jack. If you want to plug the iPod just buy a "Twin phono to 3.5mm stereo jack cable".
You can find in many superstores or Maplin.
