PHONO is ONLY for TURNTABLES. That's why they don't call it AUX.

Wired as I described in the other request, the EQ will have effect of anything that amplifier uses for input once you engage the tape loop the EQ is installed on.

Why will Amp not produce sound unless the input and output are patched together


A typical stereo receiver / amp consists of switching low level input signals (CD, DVD, Phono, DAT, etc.), processing them and then output to the amplifier (low level) input for amplification to levels needed to drive speakers. The low level signals would barely be audible via an earphone, so they need to be boosted significantly in order to drive speakers.

Some amps provide jumpers to insert into the phono jacks on the rear of the amp to bridge the processed low level output signals into the low level amplifier input. You could install a Y cable here to feed two amplifiers - or - connect a tape recorder's "REC L+R" to the low level output and the "PLAY L+R" to the low level amp input so that you'd hear the actual audio as it had been recorded on the tape.

If you remove the jumpers (or tape recorder if used instead), there is no way for the low level audio to get into the amp's low level inputs for amplification.

I have Sansui G-9000, and its phono stages emit a buzzing/distorted sound even if a turntable is not connected. There is also no sound coming from the left speaker (I already tried switching the speakers,...


The Phono section has a very high level of amplification and so the audio input is very sensitive. So a possible faulty/loose grounding of the input can create a HUM which can be due to even a poor shielding of the input from stray AC factors. So you need to check for the these factors that can bring in the hum , you can confirm by isolating the phono circuit and working to the faulty stage.
Also it can be due to a faulty power supply - non filtering in DC- to the phono preamplifier.Finally faulty capacitors in power and feedback circuits can be a reason- check the negative feedback circuit which can be an op-amp with a feedback , check the capcitors here as a higher amplification can also be a reason.- check the preamp IC.

How do I hookup a turntable?


To what?

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

You don't say what electronics you're running this through. If you connect it to a Line Level input instead of a specific Phono input the result would be very low, tinny sound.

If so, you need to get a Phono Preamplifier.

Some modern TT's have selectable internal Phono preamps that allow them to connect to virtually any other audio electronics. YOU need to determine its suitability depending on the downstream electronics.

Sansui 2000x Phone 1 and 2 inputs produce garbled sounds.


I imagine everything is also VERY LOUD.

Only a Phono (old school turntable) should be plugged into the Phono inputs. It contains a preamp for the tiny signal provided by a Phono cartridge, plus is alters the frequency response drastically to compensate for the RIAA curve applied when they cut the record from tape.

McIntosh MA6100 integrated Amp Phoho input crackiling


These units are capacitor coupled between stages. It sound to me like one or more of those caps are defective. There is an extra stage of amplification for the Phono inputs. Check the phono pre-amp section for defective caps. Dan

Distorted sounds


The AT-PL120 uses a magnetic cartridge to extract a music signal from the record. Magnetic cartridges all put out a very weak electric signal, and so their output must be strengthened, or amplified, to where it is as strong as the input from, say, a CD player. This amplification is provided by a pre-amp. If your receiver has dedicated "phono" inputs the pre-amp circuits are already in the receiver. If you do not have dedicated phono inputs you must either buy a pre-amp, or buy a magnetic cartridge turntable with a pre-amp built into itself. The AT-PL120 has a built in pre-amp. You can switch the AT-PL120's preamp on or off. The switch is located under the platter at the back side of the turntable. Take the platter mat off and turn one of the platter's holes to the back and you should see the switch through the hole. If you push the switch to LINE OUT the preamp is turned on and the turntable sends an amplified cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to a receiver inout suitable for a CD player (a "high level" input). If you push the pre-amp selector switch to PHONO OUT the turntable sends the weak unstrengthened cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to the receiver's dedicated PHONO inputs so the signal can be amplified with the receiver's own pre-amp circuits.

If everything is set wrong (i.e. LINE OUT (pre-amp on), and connected to phono inputs) you are applying two steps of strengthening to the turntable's signal which is too much. The resultant sound will be garbled. Try not to do this!

The other way to do everything wrong is set the pre-amp switch to PHONO OUT (pre-amp off) and connect the turntable's cables to a high level input. If this happens the turntable signal receives no amplification and the resultant sound will be thin and weak.

Do not connect your PC output to the Phono input, it is a mismatch. Thye output from the PC will be "line level" or the same level as tape input, aux input, CD input etc. The phono input line contains an extra stage of amplification required for turntables. If you attempt to use that input, you will fry it. Any of the other inputs on the receiver will work for you.
