hi, hoping someone could help me as im not really in the know about this kind of thing
so i have a stanton T62 turntable, i want to connect this to a panasonic SA PM11 cd player/speakers, i plug it in with the RCA cables to the aux input of the panasonic, i have to turn the volume all the way up to get a good volume out of it, its listenable but sounds slightly tinny and cant hear much bass.
I looked online and read that i needed a phono preamp, so i bought a cheapish one for £18, it has 2 inputs, a Aux input and a phono input and the output as well, when i connect the turntable to the phono input on the preamp and the output to the cd player, there is no sound at all, however if i plug the turntable into the aux input on the preamp and then to the cd player, it is pretty much the same as it was before using the preamp.
Am i doing something wrong, id assume i needed to plug into the phono input on the preamp because my cd player only has aux but nothing happens, do i need the preamp or is it pointless?
am i going to have to buy a separate amp and speakers to get any decent sound out of this thing? i can put up with the sound as its not bad but would like to be able to increase volume/bass if possible?
any help would be appreciated
