Re: Selecting phono preamp for Onkyo HT-R510
The magnetic cartridge preamp should work with the turntable, as presumably it will have a magnetic cartridge in it. The only reason that the amp states "magnetic" is that some very old turntables have ceramic cartridges which should not be connected to that terminal. Even if the turntable had a "ceramic" it could be replaced with a magnetic one!

The turntable output cables go into the input of the magnetic cartridge preamp. The output ones go into an a tape in or aux on the Onkyo. I'm assuming that it doesn't have a input that says deck on it. Apart from getting some good quality interconnects between the devices it's a very simple thing to do.
This sounds like a wiring problem. Perhaps a faulty earth connection inside the lead or the plugs to and from the turntable. Also check the connections to the cartridge, they can become loose or be connected wrong. Say a channel to the earth connection.
Just plug the turntable into your phone inputs. If there is next to no volume then you need a preamp because you have a magnetic (low output) cartridge. If you have a piezo type cartridge the output should be enough to drive the amplifier to rated output. Of your unit does not have a phono input I can tell you that it definitely does not have a preamp built in.
yes you can but you will need a phono preamp such as the one found here. http://www.turntableneedles.com/Phono-Pre-Amps_c_4.html Hook the output of the preamp to Line 1 on the back of the CR515 and for simplest ground wire hookup, choose a preamp with a thumbscrew for the ground (earth) cable coming from your turntable.
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.
The AT-PL120 uses a magnetic cartridge to extract a music signal from the record. Magnetic cartridges all put out a very weak electric signal, and so their output must be strengthened, or amplified, to where it is as strong as the input from, say, a CD player. This amplification is provided by a pre-amp. If your receiver has dedicated "phono" inputs the pre-amp circuits are already in the receiver. If you do not have dedicated phono inputs you must either buy a pre-amp, or buy a magnetic cartridge turntable with a pre-amp built into itself. The AT-PL120 has a built in pre-amp. You can switch the AT-PL120's preamp on or off. The switch is located under the platter at the back side of the turntable. Take the platter mat off and turn one of the platter's holes to the back and you should see the switch through the hole. If you push the switch to LINE OUT the preamp is turned on and the turntable sends an amplified cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to a receiver inout suitable for a CD player (a "high level" input). If you push the pre-amp selector switch to PHONO OUT the turntable sends the weak unstrengthened cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to the receiver's dedicated PHONO inputs so the signal can be amplified with the receiver's own pre-amp circuits.
If everything is set wrong (i.e. LINE OUT (pre-amp on), and connected to phono inputs) you are applying two steps of strengthening to the turntable's signal which is too much. The resultant sound will be garbled. Try not to do this!
The other way to do everything wrong is set the pre-amp switch to PHONO OUT (pre-amp off) and connect the turntable's cables to a high level input. If this happens the turntable signal receives no amplification and the resultant sound will be thin and weak.
