Question about Audio Players & Recorders
How do I set up my Pioneer VSX-70 AV Receiver so that I can turn off the power and get the audio to bypass through to the TV speakers on my Samsung PN64F8500 instead?
It depends what you mean by "audio"? Or more precisely what audio from where? For example if a DVD player is connected only to the Pioneer then when the power is switched off, the Pioneer can not route audio from that to the TV. The best way of connection is to have everything running into the TV and then feeding the audio out via an optical cable connected between the TV and Pioneer. This will send high quality sound to your receiver when its on, but allow you to watch and hear sound without it.

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.

Are you meaning it doesn't have a connection for a turntable, just aux connections etc?
Check if it has a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first, if it doesn't you can get one just put the words: magnetic cartridge pre-amp, into Google to find one. Once you get it that will plug into an aux socket and the turntable into that, so you can hear the sound.

It helps to know the details of BOTH entities when an inter-connection is involved.
Most 'new' receivers don't support old-school TT's.
"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.
If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.
eBay always has some...

Testimonial: "Thank you .Information was very helpful."
If your Pioneer has a PHONO input there should not be a problem
