Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. 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

C. 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.

Our turntable is not producing any sound even though we have changed the speakers


Be sure the audio-out leads are connected properly to the receiver. They usually will work ok connected to the aux. plugs. Be sure the selector on the front of receiver is set to aux as well. Check the cartridge output wires to insure they are connected to the cartridge ok. If you have the receiver powered up and have the proper settings on the front of the receiver, you should get a little static sound when plugging the audio output leads into their respective input jacks on the receiver.

This sounds like a wiring problem. Perhaps a faulty earth connection inside the lead or the plugs to and from the turntable. Also check the connections to the cartridge, they can become loose or be connected wrong. Say a channel to the earth connection.

Denon DP300F no audio output to harman kardon 158 reciever


A turntable can NOT be connected direct via a tape input on any amp. Magnetic Cartridges require a special socket often called a "phono" input. If your receiver doesn't have a dedicated socket, by the sound of it doesn't, then you need to get a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. The turntable will plug into this and that will plug into the tape input on your receiver.

I put a new cartridge and needle in my fr-d35 and hooked it up to an amp and speakers but the only sound is coming from the turntable itself everything is hooked up correctly and im using the phono channel...


What you need to do is disconect the turntable from the amp and touch the phono connectors of the amp. You should hear a buzz on each channel. If you don't then the pre-amp for the deck inside the amp is faulty. If OK plug the turntable back in to the amp and remove the connectors to the cartridge. With the amp on - touch each wire end cartridge connector. You should hear a buzz on the left with one wire and a buzz on the right with another wire. The other two wires are earth and will not probably give a responce. Again no buzz and there's a fault in the wires that connect to your amp. Or a fault inside the turntable itself.

Deck produces no sound at all, amp and pre amp is fine, hum through amp when wires to the cartridge are pressed, even touching the stylus makes a slight sound but when put on the record no sound what so...


Bad cartridge if you get a buzz from touching the wires to it once they are removed. That shows that the system is working but the output from the cartridge is rubbish!

The channels are reversed. The red lead is the left channel whereas it should be the right. The leads to the cartridge match their color codes with the marking on the cartridge. The wires in the headshell...


If it a PROPER head-shell the leads DO come off the pins at the rear of the cartridge.

Also if you are using EXTERNAL speaker it may be that the speaker leads are incorrectly wired to the speakers and that would simply be a matter of swapping the external speaker outputs over.

I have a Thorens TD115. The left channel doesn't


HELLO
I am basing my findings on my THORENS TD166 MK2.
First thing you have to do here is check the wiring from the headshell to the RCA phono leads - for this you need a multi-meter set on continuity.
Disconnect the cartridge and put one meter probe on one of the headshell wires and the other to the centre pins and outer rim of the RCA plugs. One headshell wire should read fine on one part of the plug as it will correspond with ONE part only of the RCA plug. When you have checked all wiring and you get a continuity check (OK) then you must look to the cartridge.
However, if you get a reading of ONE headshell wire reading more than one part of an RCA plug then you may have an internal wiring problem in the deck.
Here is something that might help:
HEADSHELL:
RED - to centre pin of right output plug GREEN - to outer metal rim of right output plug WHITE - to centre pin of left output plug BLUE - to outer metal rim of left output plug In some cases this wire may be black
Just to recap, if these readings are OK - the cartridge may be at fault.
I wish you well with it!!! (:-)

SONY PS LX300H turntable works only one channel at a time


This sounds suspiciously like the wiring of the cartridge is wrong or something is shorted together. The cause should be visible.

Taking special care to NOT touch the stylus itself in this operation:

Turn the locking collar and remove the cartridge assembly in its shell from the tonearm.

Flip the assembly over and examine the four wires under a magnifying glass for disconnections, kinks, crimps, or metal-to-metal contact between any of them. They should each attach to a pin exiting straight out from the cartridge.

The wires are also color coded as are the terminals. If they're wrong you could have various sonic malfunctions.

Correcting miswires is delicate and I would recommend taking the turntable and stylus to a pro for that part.
