You will need the following to connect this to that system:

1) Phono Pre-amp
2) 3.5mm to RCA adapter or 3.5mm 'Y' cable to RCA
3) Turntable

Your turntable will connect to the Phono Pre-Amp input. This pre-amp will also have an output. This output is RCA, from here you connect to your system using the 3.5mm adapter or cable.

That's it.

How do I connect a Stanton T80 turntable to my PC?


Hi,
First of all you can try with the line input of your Pc audio card. There will be 3.5 mm stereo socket in the pc audio card (blue color ) which will marked as LINE IN. To connect the turntable to this socket you need a RCA to 3.5mm Stereo converter like on in the picture bellow. I have also added a link to a video which will help you to do the same. In the video the are showing a cassette deck. In you case Turntable in place of cassette deck.
You have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINE OUT. Then you can use any software to record the signals from the LINE INPUT of your PC.

If you need a high quality recording the you have to use a special converter which will do the job neatly.


To convert or upload (copy) tracks in LP in good quality then you need a interface unit between the Turntable an PC. Which will convert the analog audio out to Digital signal ( RCA to USB). The unit will come with the driver for it. That you have to install on your PC.


Keep on thing in Mind that when your are using such a converter between Turntable and PC you have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINEOUT.


Here i have added link which will lead you to such a USB converter. Which will provide you studio quality stereo.

Is there some way to connect an ipod to a Philips mc-m570 stereo?


the interface will probably only work with the phillips software, but many of those stereos support playing from a flash drive.

I just got a multimedia surround system with subwoofer.Spa7650/05, 180w.The subwoofer has three audio connections,front,centre and rear,My tv only has an audio coaxial.I can't connect it.What adapter...


Hello,
Firs of all lets get agree on something..The subwoofer has three audio connections for "output " to :front,centre and rear speakers...these are not for "input"..Your powered SUB provides necessary signal for other spekers..
You can connect TV audio coaxial to SUB input with a RCA cable.....if your SUB does not have "RCA input " probably it should have "3,5mm Haedphone female Jack"..
if this is the case you need to buy a cable ; one end 3,5mm MALE headphone jack and the other end 2xRCA stereo (or 1x RCA for mono or you may need "Y cable " ) to be connected to your TV...
And you need to connect front,centre and rear speakers to your SUB as well...
Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)

Hope this helps!

Hello. I have a Technics Micro System SC-HD505 and I want to buy a Pioneer Turntable PL-990 to connect in this machine. It will fit?


The PL-990, having its own internal PHONO Preamp/EQ, will operate with any audio gear that has a standard Line Level stereo input (aux, cd. tape, etc).

How do I connect my turntable to my micro hi fi.The only sockets I have on the hi fi are aux and headphone socket.


You will need to look for a magnetic cartridge preamp this will then plug into the aux socket. If you need that socket for something else I suggest you get a switcher box. You might even get one with a cartridge pre-amp built in!

Adding turntable to bose music wave system


Hiya, sad to say it wont work even with the correct plugs. If you really need/want to get it going, you will need a RIIA pre amp to use to convert the turntable levels to an acceptable level for the bose. Once you have that, then get the correct matching plugs for the bose (sames guys that supply the preamp should be able to help). Suggest a google search in your area "RIIA PREAMP" and see who supplys.

Best of luck

WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP


The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

No sound from turntable bought for our hi fi system


Hi,

Most if not all turntables would need to be connected to a PHONO INput which is high impedance with a high gain pre-amplifier stage. It will not work when connected to an AUX, CD or any line level inputs. Alternately, if your amp does not have any Phono Inputs, you can feed the turntable output to a preamp which can then be connected to any any line level inputs. An example may be found here or here. Additionally, there are some turntables with a built-in preamp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
