    Default How to get my turntable to work with my receiver? (no Phono unput)

    Picked up a new receiver but it does not have a Phono input and every other input I tried my turntable will not work, no sound.

    Any ideas?

    You can use an external phono pre-amp if your AVR doesn't have one built in.

    What level of quality do you want (in other words, how much do you want to spend) ?

    Phono preamps are available at most of the major hifi retailers at deal with vinyl playback: Audioadvisor, Needledoctor, etc.

    However, I'd recommend going used though. There are lots of choices at audiogon and ebay

    Cheap, cheap, cheap, no need for anything hi-end. I'll check ebay.

    I think I still have my first phono pre. Paid 20 buck for it. Let me look for it if I still have it its yours for no cost.

    Ron, I need one too. I recently setup a B&K PT-5 pre-amp and now don't have a phono input either. What did you buy?
