Connecting an old stereo?

Hi,


I bought an old pioneer stereo (Pioneer F-x5l). It has many components eg. record player, tape etc.


How do I connect these? I have lots of red and white cords at the back. I have connected the speakers?


Also there are 5 separate power cords. Will this use up a LOT of power?


Is there a way to get the manual for free?


I want to connect it to my computer, is this possible?


thank you

I thought it was one of those “all in one†systems until you mentioned the power cords. So I take it the pieces are all individual components?


If that’s the case, all you have to do is plug them into the correct inputs on the receiver – i.e., turntable into “Phono,†cassette deck into “Tape In,†etc.


This should be painfully obvious, so maybe I’m missing something?


Yes, you can hook up your computer to it. But first let’s just get it working.


Regards,

Just because it has lots of power cords does not mean the system will use lots of power. The main amplifier or receiver probably uses the most power and (most likely) only uses a lot of power when the volume is way up.


Each component (turntable, etc) should have the amount of power it uses (watts) listed on a label in back.
