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.

One speaker very quiet

The first thing to do is to see if the problem is the computer's output or inside the speaker / amplifier. This can be done easily by removing the speaker plug from the computer's audio output jack and plugging it into a stereo device with the same size jack (likely a stereo 3.5mm type).

You will probably find that many devices support this plug. Check your phone, MP3 player, iPad, iPod, etc. Turn the volume on the speaker (if equipped) DOWN to minimum and the volume of the source device to about 1/4 -to 1/3 of the way up. Choose a source (MP3, etc.) and PLAY. Slowly turn up the volume on the speaker until it can be heard comfortably. Compare the sound from one speaker to the other. If the sound level is equal, the problem lies with your computer. If the sound is louder on one than the other, the problem is with the speakers. Once you know which is the problem, you can see about repairing / replacing the damaged parts.

Good luck!

Hi. Today I bought a 3 foot audio y-cable and an RCA (Phono) Female to RCA (Phoneo) Female cable so that I could hook up these two speakers that I have that belong to a predisian sound system (boom box)...

All you need to do is get a USB based sound adapter 16/32BIT MINIMUM to plug your speakers straight into your laptop with better sound. Many laptops will have limited sound OUTPUT which places large limitations on pushing sound through your nice speakers. You already know the problem is not the speakers or new cables, therefore you know that problem has been isolated to your laptop. You may also check the volume settings in the laptop to ensure your running the highest possible BIT or volume enhacement software. Let me know if this does the trick for you.

Have only had speakers for about one month now and one speaker is not playing unless I hold the volume control to one side to made good contact. Were great speakers - to start with! Cheers.. Errol H


In regards to your speakers not working it sounds like the stereo plug may not be plugged in all the way. If it gets unplugged then only one connector is on the stereo plug. So I would unplug and replug the stereo cable on the computer and you sub. Doing will get the connectors lined backup.

Let me know if you still have trouble.

Got t7900`


I have had that problem with a T7700/T7900 speaker system.

Disconnect the remote control from the subwoofer. Then what you need to do is unscrew the remote volume/bass control unit (4 little screws). Swab the contacts on the volume dial with a cotton bud (q tip) denaturated alcohol or even perfume will work. Make sure you do it several times until all the slight dirt that is causing the volume fluctuation/spikes to happen. Also remove any remnants of cotton that might get stuck.Now you'll have it working as new as long do not cause any other damage to the unit.
