Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a turntable with a white and a red male RCA output cable. I am trying to hook it up to a Marathon DJ-1000 amp which has two TRS input channels - Channel 1 and Channel 2. Should I buy a twin female RCA (red and white) connector so that I input both outputs into Channel 1 of the amp? Or should I buy a single female RCA to TRS input for each, so that I input say red RCA into Channel 1 and white RCA into Channel 2. Sorry if this is a dumb question - but I'm new to this. Thanks!

If I understand you correctly each channel has a single input in the amp, then yes! white goes into channel 1 and the red plug goes to channel 2 this way your signal will be stronger which translates into louder sound.

    Thanks - does it matter if I put both red and white into a single channel?

  • John Cunningham Jan 25, 2011

    No! that will not matter you can use the proper adapter to combine the signals together.

    Can I email you a picture of the back of the amp with some wiring diagrams?

  • John Cunningham Jan 25, 2011

    Yes! that sounds fine.

    OK - I just sent an email to [email protected]

  • John Cunningham Jan 25, 2011

    I went to the site and I can not locate the diagram, so I would not worry about this since we are talking input on channels 1 and 2

    Thank you Patrick I'am glad I could help you! thanks JC.

Why won't both my turntables play out of my mixer?


I am guessing but it sounds like a gorse impedance mismatch. You should never connect two outputs together unless they are specifically designed for that. Since you are listing to mono why not send each output to the Base Amp the other to the cabinet. That should resolve the problem.

How do i attatch preamp to marantz sr9200 for phono


If you are talking about a phono preamp, take the output rca cables from the turntable, "red and white" plug it into the preamp input, "labled" next take a red and white cable wire male ends, "3 to 6" feet long, and plug the one end in the output of the preamp, "labled" and finally plug the remainder into the AUX input of the Marantz receiver matching the colour codes so the left and right channels don't get mixed up, you now should be good to go.

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

I have a new set up and i need a step by step instruction on how to set up the mixer to the amp and the decks to the mixer/amp


if this is a dj type set up, the mixer should have a main output (RCA or XLR), that is what you connect to the input on the amp, each deck should have RCA outputs, depending on if they are turntables or cd players, plug the turntables into the phono channel inputs on the mixer and if they are cd players, plug them into the line inputs on the mixer

How do I connect my Dell laptop to the tv speakers ? Not for video - only for sound . Thanks, TJ


You will need an 1/8" TRS Stereo Male to Stereo RCA(Red and White) Male adapter. Plug the 1/8" TRS into your Laptop Speaker Out, or Headphone Out, and plug the RCA Stereo cable into your TV Input.

You can either hook up the left channel only or buy a splitter that separates one input into two outputs.

I have dynex flat screen hdtv,need to hook up jvc dual dvd-vcr recorder to it need direction pls have no knowledge of hooking up this diagram would also be great


  • find the video input 1 in the back of the tv (this video connector yellow + audio red **audio right channel and white left channel) is known as female RCA conector)
  • get a set of rca wires **known as male RCA*** (yellow red and white)
  • find the RCA female conectors Yellow red and white in the DVD call it video (and audio) output
Connect sets accordingly the TV video input yellow conector with video output yellow with the set of wires RCA yellow. Do the same with audio.

  1. second part of this talking is to find and cable splitter (usually three output and one input
  2. find TWO coax cables (this cable is usually a black wire with a connector each side this fits perfectly in the antena input of the tv)
Now connect your cable into the splitter (input) and your two cables in each output, then send one of them into the TV antena conector and another to the DVD coax input.

To watch your TV only select any regualr channel as you do it.
And to record and actually see Your DVD/tape and what you record also. You have to select in your remote control the video 1

ones you get custome to this configuration you can record a channel and at the ssame time watch any second channel selected in the tv.

I hope was clear.

Turntable


Hi Harpwailer,

I was unable to locate an owner's manual for VSX-D412 on the Pioneer website. I did find a VSX-D411, which I believe is very similar. Since there are no turntable jacks, I would try any set of open analog (RCA cable, like the ones that come out of your turntable and are probably red and white) jacks. Just plug the red cable into the red input jack, and the white into the white. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure that you use the input jacks, since some components (like tape decks) have input and output jacks, so that you can record to/from them.

This will work fine assuming that the output from your turntable is strong enough. Many turntables are designed to go through a pre-amp circuit; if this is the case with yours, you'll know it since the output volume will be very low, even when turned up very high. If this is the case, you'll need to purchase a pre-amp to put in the circuit between your turntable and the receiver, or else buy another turntable that outputs at a higher level (they can still be had rather inexpensively, surprisingly enough!). Also, you'll probably have a ground wire coming out from your turntable as well. You'll need to hook it to a chassis screw on the amp to prevent an electrical hum from being picked up and output through your speakers.

I hope this helps, and good luck listening to your vinyl. If you deem it appropriate, I would appreciate a rating on the help I have provided. Thanks!
