Question about Pioneer VSX-D412 Receiver
You need to connect to the Analog out which is located on the top left of the receiver. If you do not have a Pre-Amp you will not be able to hear the turntable. It is smarter just to purchase a turntable with a built in preamp. they sell for under $100.00. Or if your really smart throw this receiver in the trash and purchase a true two channel receiver with all the necessary rca in's and outs to include a phono plug. These can be had for anywere from $100-$200. This receiver is made more for video and home surround systems than for stereo music systems...

I was unable to locate an owner's manual for VSX-D412 on the Pioneer website. I did find a VSX-D411, which I believe is very similar. Since there are no turntable jacks, I would try any set of open analog (RCA cable, like the ones that come out of your turntable and are probably red and white) jacks. Just plug the red cable into the red input jack, and the white into the white. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure that you use the input jacks, since some components (like tape decks) have input and output jacks, so that you can record to/from them.
This will work fine assuming that the output from your turntable is strong enough. Many turntables are designed to go through a pre-amp circuit; if this is the case with yours, you'll know it since the output volume will be very low, even when turned up very high. If this is the case, you'll need to purchase a pre-amp to put in the circuit between your turntable and the receiver, or else buy another turntable that outputs at a higher level (they can still be had rather inexpensively, surprisingly enough!). Also, you'll probably have a ground wire coming out from your turntable as well. You'll need to hook it to a chassis screw on the amp to prevent an electrical hum from being picked up and output through your speakers.
I hope this helps, and good luck listening to your vinyl. If you deem it appropriate, I would appreciate a rating on the help I have provided. Thanks!
