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...

Hi Harpwailer,

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!

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

I need to connect to a Marantz SR-19 a record player How do i do it


On the back of the receiver there are connections, usually record player should be hooked up on Phono slot. If Phono is not available, trying using Aux or another slot that isn't being used. After hooking it up, remember the place you hooked it up, turn on the turntable, play a record, then hit the button on the receiver where the turntable is hooked up.

Can i use a turntable with the sony str dh500 model? I am illiterate when it comes to hooking this stuff up. Planning to purchase this model only if I can hook up my record player as well as my cd player.


This particular unit only has 2 line level inputs for audio devices. You can use 1 for the CD player and the other for the Turntable. Please note that you will need a phono pre-amp for the turntable as the inputs on the receiver are line level. The preamp will amplify the phono level to line level.

After further research, I learned that I need to plug the turntable into a preamp before plugging it into my newer receiver. As with cassettes, record players are fading away. I ordered a preamp, but won't be able to experience success until it arrives.

Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.
