I picked-up a Denon DP-DJ151 digital turntable off of eBay.

The analog connection works great, but I can't get the digital output to work. It has a coax output and I have it hooked to a coax input on my Denon AVR988, but I get nothing.

What am I doing wrong? I plugged the coax cable into an input that was working with another component, so I'm at a loss.

I would be greatful for any help.

Bob

Sounds like you need to take this issue up with your seller. They may have known it had this issue.

When all else fails - RTFM!

Back from the dead!

It only took four years to figure out what I was doing wrong (And replacement of the receiver).

The DP-DJ151 has a built-in phono pre-amp for receivers that don't have a phono input. I just bought a new receiver without the phono input, so I flipped the switch on the bottom of the turntable and hooked it up with both analog and digital outputs, and low and behold the digital out was recognized-- finally success.

This turntable always sounded good, but I think the digital output has some sort of "crackle" filter; the first record I played sounded louder and didn't have that turntable noise.

Now I have to learn how to properly balance the tone arm.
