Turntable help.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If this is in the wrong part of the forums go ahead and move it. So I have an old Jcpenny turntable I hooked it up to my Aiwa stereo receiver turned up the gain but something just doesn't sound right.
The turntable is outputing through the aux jacks there are no groundloops and no feedback but towards the end of my Dark Side of the Moon LP (great album) the sound quality is horrible it's like the turntable is being overloaded, and it sound like a bad mp3. The album is Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon remastered and is brand new, the only thing that's "wrong" with it is that it attracts lint. Thanks for the help everyone.

Does either your TT or receiver have a phono preamp?smile.gif

I'm not sure entirely sure, the tt mostly likely doesn't because it is quite old and the receiver I got from my Aunt. The receiver has a input level control for the phone jacks if that means anything. It's a Aiwa NSX-999 it's from 1995.

First of all, the symptoms you are describing do not sound like you're missing a phono preamp. But just to be sure, there should be an set in inputs on your receiver labeled "phono." Make sure your turntable is plugged into those.

Distortion at the end of a record size is inevitable, but if the problem is extreme it suggests that the cartridge is misaligned.

There is no phono input. I'm going to buy a pre-amp and will also get a new cartridge.
