playing Pro-Ject Debut Carbon USB through iMac and Audioengine 5+
First post, please be gentle.
I am baffled by this feedback that I am getting whenever I try to play a record on my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon USB Turntable through my iMac using Audacity. I have tried everything to eliminate the buzzing noise, but I wonder if I am wiring this setup correctly. I have the turntable connected to the iMac using the USB cord. It is plugged in and grounded to a different outlet than the iMac and the speakers. I have tried using RCA cables between the turntable and the iMac, but that was just as bad. I own the Audioengine D1 DAC, but I have been trying to keep things simple until I figure this buzzing noise out so I am not using it right now. So the only cord I need is the USB cord from turntable to iMac, right?
If so, then why am I getting incredibly strong buzzing noise whenever I try to play through this setup? I don't even turn the turntable on, and I have buzzing noise. If I turn the turntable on, then the buzzing is slightly louder, but it's loud anyway. I can barely hear the music over the buzzing when it plays. What am I doing wrong?
If I just want to send the music directly from the turntable through my speakers (without going through the iMac), how do I wire that up?
