Question about Pioneer VSX-D711 Receiver

Poor sound When I hook up my Pioneer PLX100 turntable to my Pioneer VSX D711 receiver, the sound quality is very poor and I have to raise the volume to a maximum to even hear it. I am using the AUX inputs.

You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input. The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack. I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you. http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html

How can I connect an analog turntable to my Pioneer VSX-D710S? Also, do I need a turntable with a built in pre-amp?


According to the specs there aren't any phono inputs which would have their own preamp. Everything else is line level so I'm pretty sure you'll need a preamp either between the turntable and one of the line level inputs or built into the turntable.

I hooked up my T.52x turntable to my pioneer vsx-d711 receiver through the RCA input...nothing fancy. I have to turn my receiver volume all the way up in order to hear the records. All the digital media...


The signal produced by a phono cartridge is much smaller than a standard Line Level component produces. That is why the clas of equipment called PREamplifiers existed. Besides PREamplifying it to a level the rest of the circuitry can use it also modifies the frequency curve according to the RIAA standard to produce a sonically flat output. Without either process applied you will have weak, tinny sound from a turntable.

The Pioneer VSX-D711, like most modern AV receivers, is not equipped with a Phono Preamp. If the connector doesn't SAY Phono is won't do Phono.

Vsx-d711 sound problem


HI...
Sounds like ( no pun intended) poor speaker wire connections.
Check the wires at both ends and make sure theyre firmly attached.
If one speaker isnt connected , the amp will reset over n over

Yes.
There's an integrated circuit that steers all the input signals thru.
That has crapped out.

The Sound is Gone.


Hi....
The circuits that routes all the audio signals thru the amp has either died OR the power supply that runs that circuit has died.
