OK. Since there is a pre-amp, all you need to do is to connect pre-amp output to Line-in input on the PC. This may be a bit of challenge as the connector on the pre-amp and computer are of different types. Usually, you need a cable with RCA connectors on one end and 3.5mm stereo pin (same pin as you have for stereo headphones) on the other.

Technics SL-D33 Channel drop.


There's nothing wrong with the turntable then. It's your receiver that's the problem. In order to hear a magnetic cartridge it has to go via a pre-amp. It's this pre-amp that has failed in your receiver. It's only used by a turntable so wouldn't affect anything else. You should be able to trace this pre-amp by following the turntable socket wires. It will probably be a small IC that has failed. If you look up the number you should find it.

I've been given a Technics sl-bd22d turntable, an Arcam amplifier and a Cambridge 551P pre amplifier. How do I connect them all together?


Depends what type of sockets these have. If the Pre-Amp has a RCA phono sockets you just need some RCA leads. I don't know if the Arcam Amp works with any pre-amp. But if it does, it's likely to have the same type sockets as the others. So you just buy another two RCA leads and connect it up.

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.

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

How do i hook a numark tt 1625 turntable to a regular home stereo amplifier...does the ground need to go into anything specific?


Turntables require a special input in the amp (usually marked PHONO) because they require high gain and different equalization - and yes, that ground wire has to go to ground unless you want to get a super annoying 60Hz hum from it!
If your amp doesn't have a phono input, you're going to have to go out and get a phono pre-amp and connect it between the turntable and the amp.
Best of luck!

Does my turntable need a new cartridge? I have a Technics SL DD22 which hasn't been used in a while. I hooked it up to a Bose receiver which works fine (hooked up an i pod to it before) & it plays...


The output from any regular turntable is far too low for most amplifiers to handle. You need to either run the output through a pre-amplifier first to bring the signal up to line output levels suitable for most recording devices and amplifiers or run it into an integrated amplifier which includes the pre-amp stage.

If your Bose receiver specifically includes a turntable input then it has a pre-amp built in, but as so few folks use turntables any more very few devices have the correct input. Pre-amps are still easy to obtain and can be very cheap, but cheap ones produce a noisy and unpleasant output which is magnified by the amplifier. If ever there's a choice to be made, spend the money on the pre-amp and go budget on the main amp.

I hope that I've saved you wasting money on something you didn't need. Please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Hook the output to Aux. As for your PC, that would depend on your sound card. Basically, the same.

You need a turntable pre-amp, or a receiver with turntable inputs.. The turntable is functioning properly, until recently no turntable had this built-in. Search ebay for turntable pre-amp and you should be good.

Yes you need a pre amp

It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too
