As LOCAUSS stated, you have to connect to the following:

1) Turntable --> PHONO (input)

or if you do not have a PHONO input, then you have to buy a PHONO PRE-AMP, from there...

1) Turntable --> Input on Pre-Amp --> Output from Pre-amp goes to INPUT of either Line, CD, Aux, or Tape input on receiver/amp/system.

Hope this helps.

I has the same problem. You must plug it in into your PHONO receiver. If you do not have a PHONO line in, you have to buy a Phono PreAmp at Guitar Center and once you set it up, you can then plug it into any input. Good Luck

Please let me know how your turntable is connected to the music system. I mean, to which input ? (Tape/Aux/Phono/VCR/CD) ?

As a test, switch the right and left RCA cables from the turntable to the amp. If the problem reverses, the issue is in the turntable or with the cables. If it stays the same, its a problem with the amp.

it could be two things:
1.the tone arm wires that connect to the head shell (blue-red-green-white i think)

look right at the end of the needle tip,& see if it's straight & pointing down, if not carefully twist the needle arm round until it is,& push it into back in to the cartridge a little bit.

Low volume through amp


you will probably need to buy a phono pre amp , i have a Dual 505 turntable that worked fine on my ROTEL amp but when i changed amps and went to NAD i had to buy a phono pre amp or else listen to really low sound . hope this helps

Low volume and unbalanced deck


Turntables require amplification, they have very low output on their own. If your Sherwood has an Aux input try using that, older receivers often had a built-in pre-amp on the aux jack. You can obtain a stand alone pre-amp for less than $50, I use one from mcm, #40-630.

Sound is way too low


Make sure you are connecting the unit to the PHONO input on your receiver or mixer. If you do not have a PHONO input, then you need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP and then you'll be able to connect to any LINE or AUX level input.
