Make sure a new amp has a phono input (a sensitive high impedance input)

My Dual CS 430 turntable suddenly stopped playing - rest of equipment (radio, CD player, tape deck) okay. Can you help, please?


Amplifiers always take the sound of the turntable via a separate pre-amp from all other systems, such as radio and CD players. This pre-amp can go faulty killing the sound from the turntable only. If the turntable goes through the actions of playing the record, then this is the cause of your trouble.

How to connect a turntable connected to a yamaha a450 stereo amplifier...can I attache the a450 to the htr-6130 ?


If the turntable is newer kind you can connect it in any Stereo input like CD, VCR , etc.

If the turntable is older model you can only connect it to PHONO input (if amp has one) and make sure earthing cable is connected on Amp

Remember input is only stereo (unless your model has digital input) and select sound effect eg Pro Logic for enhanced sound,

I've been given a Technics sl-bd22d turntable, an Arcam amplifier and a Cambridge 551P pre amplifier. How do I connect them all together?


Depends what type of sockets these have. If the Pre-Amp has a RCA phono sockets you just need some RCA leads. I don't know if the Arcam Amp works with any pre-amp. But if it does, it's likely to have the same type sockets as the others. So you just buy another two RCA leads and connect it up.

When i hook up my B &O turnable to Audio 1 Or Audio 2, i got sound but at very low volume even when jacked up to max. all other components blast out audio from my speakers.


It's logical, the audio output level for the turntable is very low (depending on the model about 1-5mVolts) while the line inputs (where you try to connect the turntable) can handle audio levels of 500-775mVolts. As I can see your amplifier is not able to handle this kind of inputs (assuming that your turntable is a typical one, without any include preamplifier) In case you insist on connecting this turntable on this amplifier there are some solution to suggest (mainly using a kind of pre-amplifier between the turntable and the main amplifier) but in order to be sure for what to suggest to you, please clarify me the brand / model for this turntable.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have an old Hitachi HT-45 turntable that I just pulled out of the closet. I plug it into my amp and I have to turn it up all the way to hear anything???


It will need a pre-amp to connect it to your newer amp. The old style turntables normally used a magnetic cartridge that older receivers / amplifiers had a special phono input (which incorporated an internal pre-amp) to connect and hear at normal volume settings. Newer receivers / amplifiers normally do not have this type of phono input, thus the need for an external pre amp device.

What is tracking force and arm weight for Dual 505-2 deck?


http://ortofon.de/ should give you the weight. It should also give you the range of tracking force. To get the right weight you can use a stylus balance. The electronic ones are expensive but good. The mechanical ones are not great but better than nothing. I set my turntable up with an Ortofon-branded mechanical balance for weight, and a test record for tracking force.

Low Audio


You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.

This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.

Your 3 options are:

* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
