Question: What if my receiver doesnt have a phono input?

If your receiver does not have a phono input, dont worry – many turntables have their own built-in preamp. (You can verify this in the owners manual.) As long as this is the case, you can use any receiver input, such as the ones labeled “Line,” “Audio,” “CD” or “Auxiliary.” 5.

Do all receivers have phono?

Receivers or amplifiers with built-in phono preamps The big clue to look for is on the back of your unit, where a set of left and right input connections will be labeled phono with a ground screw next to them. Most newer amps and receivers do not have a phono preamp built in.

Do you need a phono preamp with a receiver?

The receiver does not have a built-in phono preamp. Simply plug the turntables audio signal cable into one of the receivers analog audio inputs. These inputs are oftentimes labeled Aux (auxiliary), Line In, Analog In, etc. You can even use your receivers CD or Tape input, if needed.

Is phono input the same as aux?

A turntable produces a PHONO output signal. This phono signal needs to be converted to a LINE LEVEL signal (sometimes referred to as AUX signal) to work with audio equipment including stereo systems, computers, and speakers. A phono preamp converts PHONO to LINE LEVEL.

Is phono the same as line level?

A turntable produces a PHONO output signal. This phono signal needs to be converted to a LINE LEVEL signal (sometimes referred to as AUX signal) to work with audio equipment including stereo systems, computers, and speakers. A phono preamp converts PHONO to LINE LEVEL.

Do all turntables have a preamp?

Some turntables have a preamp built-in. Some older amplifiers and stereo systems also have preamps built-in (look for inputs marked PHONO). If your turntable has a USB output, it has a built-in preamp. If you do need an external preamp, you will need a set of cables (usually RCA cables) to connect to your audio system.

What is phono level input?

Phono input is a set of input jacks, usually mini jacks or RCA connectors, located on the rear panel of a preamp, mixer or amplifier, especially on early radio sets, to which a phonograph or turntable is attached.

Is phono or LINE better?

Firstly, a PHONO signal is much weaker than a LINE signal. A PHONO signal is typically 0.005 Volt and a LINE signal is typically 0.3 Volt. Secondly, the lower tones (bass) of a PHONO signal is significantly reduced (RIAA equalized) while this is not the case for a LINE signal.
