You need an amp that has a PHONO input or you have to get a phono pre-amp and run it 's output into a tape or AUX input on the amp with the turntable plugged into the pre-amp input.

    Sorry, AMP = amplifier, as in stereo system.
    The amp is what your speakers would hook up to , as well as any tapedecks or CD players etc.
    A turntable has a very low output, well below the 2 volt line level that most devices put out.
    It also has a very different frequency curve.
    Amplifiers that have a PHONO input have that input tuned for the low signal and frequency response of the magnetic cartridge.
    If your amplifier doesn't have a PHONO input, you will need what's called a pre-amplifier to go between the turntable and the amp.
    The pre-amp simply compensates for the frequency response of the magnetic cartridge and then boosts the signal to line level so that you can run the signal into any of the standard inputs on the amplifier.
    Hope that clears things up a bit.

I have 2 technic sl1200s and the right table has noise coming out of the speaker when i moved the tonearm. when music plays, it sounds like the treble and volume of the right speaker is weaker help...


If your left technics sounds good, maybe the problem is the cartridge. Try to interchange the cartridges, right table cartridge by the left one, and listen. If now the bad sound comes from the left table, it´s time to get a new cartridge or stylus. If the problem continues there is something else to look for. Hope this will help. Flavio/Brazil.

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.

Technics SL-L3 turntable no sound until warm up


either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm.  Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo.  I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.

Technics multiple play spindle wearing out it seems.


Need the model number. Technics released over 100 turntables between 1970-1990 - so a model number would help us in determining what you need.

check volume balance between right and left-then change inter connection between sound source and amplifier with new cabel(i prefer gold plated type connectors)(see radio shack).
after that if the problem excit your fault in output transistors or output stereo ic depend on circuit design.
