Question about Crosley Conductor CR73 Turntable

1 Answer

Computer to stereo volume is very quiet...

I am having trouble getting my computer to play loudly out of this Crosley's speakers. I have adjusted my computer's ( mac powerbook) volume output, replaced the connector wire, and still it's very much quieter than the radio, phonograph, or CD. Help! I have a lot of music that I can only play off my computer. ( I have also tested this with another laptop which is also too quiet, and an Ipod.) Is there anything I can do?

    Thanks for answering. Do you think this could be a defect ( either in the unit or the model?) In that case, tw ould be worth to me to try another similar four-in-one unit with aux-input. If not, oh so sady, I 'll have to buy a set of speaker for my comp. only. Is there a way to know that this aux input will not be very powerful before purchasing ( a number, etc.) ?

    Thanks again

Unless you have a choice of inputs, nothing.
If available, you can try a magnetic cartridge input which is much more sensitive than 'Line.'
It may be screechy though, different curve.

    "AUX" inputs and outputs are not standardized in any way I know; they are entirely dependent on the manufacturer.

    "LINE" in/outputs expect or deliver a known voltage into a standard terminating resistance.

    This is well-defined here:

    This is the kind of specification should be included with any audio (or video) device.

    The Crosley may not include those spec's since it is more of a novelty device.

I have a Crosley cr66 Rochester that plays records very quietly even at highest possible volume. Cds and radio can go to full volume so I know its not the speakers. Any idea what the problem could be?

There are 3 possibilities.
1 The Cartridge is faulty.
2 The wrong type of cartridge is fitted.
3 The pre-amp inside your unit has failed. This would not affect any of the other functions if the deck uses a Magnetic Cartridge.

The first is obvious for the solution.
The second is more tricky. For example if a Magnetic cartridge is fitted and the deck hasn't been built for one, the sound would be there but very low, as there is no internal pre-amp fitted. The solution there would be to replace the cartridge with a ceramic type or one that doesn't need a pre-amp.
To the third solution. If the internal pre-amp for the Magnetic cartridge has failed this would need a service engineer to do it, unless you have the knowledge yourself to do the job. It's likely that it will be an IC that does the entire job. It would have to be identified and replaced.
As I say the failure of the IC would not effect any other part of the system, because only the record deck goes into it.

My crosley record player comes with built in speaker, but static noises and buzzing noises keeps coming for the speakers, what do I do?

Quite often this can be due to the volume control rather than the speakers. What sort of noises due you get if you rotate the volume? Do the noises change and is there a particular setting of the control where the noises go away? If so this indicates the volume control. If not it may be the speakers.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

My crosley keepsake turntable has been having a lot of static and the sound is very low, I can only hear it if I turn the volume all the way up. I'm not sure if the needle is the problem or there is s

I would check the wires to the cartridge. It might that one or more is off or loose.
If you turn down the volume completely and listen with a record playing you should be able to hear (with your ear) the stylus in the grooves of the record playing the track. Pick a loud (rock) record for this. If it does that OK the stylus is good.

You have to get a program for your computer to use with Crosley. Unfortunately, there is none.

Turntalble works but no sound

Type "Crosley CR47 user manual" into search engine and it will show sites for manuals. Check the trouble shooting section. If that doesn't help: check internal fuse, volume control, speakers and connrctions

Crosley turntable won't play through home stereo

Quite possibly the sockets you put the deck is not designed for the playback of phono signals. They should be marked "phono".
Other issues are earth connections.

Crosley CR6001A: Left speaker barely audible

Hi Eric,

I understand how frustrating this problem can be. The problem can be the result of several different things. Two of them are 1) blown speaker and, 2) blown left amplifier output.

Try listening with stereo headphones. If you can hear both channels clearly, the amplifier is most likely functioning correctly. This is desirable as amp repairs would probably be more costly than a driver (speaker) replacement. Make sure you vary the balance controls while checking for output on both L and R speakers. If the sound is intermittent, the volume or balance control may have dirt built up and may return to working properly by liberally spraying electrical contact cleaner around the stem (knob removed) with the unit unplugged. Use the extension tube to pinpoint the output along the stem. Be careful to keep from over-spraying as it may damage plastic and wood cabinetry. After spraying, rotate the knob fully back and forth several times and then plug back in and try for sound again.

If you can't restore the volume to the left speaker, you may have a blown speaker. This usually happens as a result of excessive volume which leads to distorted sound. If played this way long enough, damage to the speaker is unavoidable.

The speaker can not be fixed - but may be replaced. Replacing the speaker is something most people with conventional hand tools can do - with the unit unplugged. Finding the information on the speaker may prove to require some digging however. You'll need to know the size, wattage rating, impedance value in ohms, and frequency response. It would be best to obtain the exact replacement part if possible.

Other than this, you'll probably need to have it serviced professionally. Good luck!

What kind of speakers can I use to make the unit louder. I have the volume on 40 when using turntable and it is not loud at all.

Does the amp your using have a magnetic cartridge amp built in? If not you might need to search online for one. Also the cartridge could cause low volume if it's faulty.

I have hooked my turntable up to my stereo and even at full volume its extreamly quiet, is there a problem or is this stereo just not set to play records? do i need some sort os amplifier?

Hi, Remove the rubber mat on the platter, there is a toggle-switch for the pre-amp. With the power off, manually rotate the platter and it will become visible through the gaps. This should resolve the low volume issue. Hope this helps. Post back with your results and good luck.
