How do I connect my Denon turntable to my Receiver?

Note: All current Denon turntables have an EQ switch to enable or disable the turntable’s built-in phono preamp. Connect the Turntable cables to any available analog (Red and White) Audio input on your receiver. Use the Source Select knob or button on your AVR to select the input connector your Turntable is connected to.

How to connect a turntable to a receiver without phono input?

There are two possible ways to connect a turntable to a receiver without phono input. We can use a turntable with a built-in phono preamp. Or we can use a standalone phono preamp that connects between the turntable and the receiver.

What happens if I connect a line signal to a turntable?

A LINE signal from a CD player is typically 100 times bigger than the PHONO signal from a turntable. So if we connect a PHONO signal from a turntable to a LINE signal input on a stereo receiver, the music will barely be hearable.

Can I connect a turntable to a CD player?

A turntable can be connected to a CD input if it has a built-in preamp (outputs a LINE signal). If the turntable does not have a built-in preamp, it can be connected to a CD input only via an external preamp. Can I connect a turntable to AUX or LINE?

How do I modify a Denon turntable?

I find it kind of amazing that you’re able to modify a turntable by removing a circuit board and rewiring its output, only to get hung up on the receiver setup. Such is the state of modern AV receivers, which can be extremely complicated. What I’d suggest you do is to go to the Input Assign section in the Denon’s setup menu.

How do I connect a Denon receiver to a CD player?

Such is the state of modern AV receivers, which can be extremely complicated. What I’d suggest you do is to go to the Input Assign section in the Denon’s setup menu. Scroll down to the source input selection that you connected the CP1 phono preamp to — CD, for example — and check the default settings.

How do I connect my turntable to my Receiver?

Connect the Turntable cables to any available analog (Red and White) Audio input on your receiver. Use the Source Select knob or button on your AVR to select the input connector your Turntable is connected to. Note: Not all turntables have a ground wire.

How do I connect a Denon turntable to a CP1 phono preamp?

Part one of mystery solved. Your next step should be easy enough: attach the turntable to the CP1 phono preamp’s input, and then connect the CP1’s line-level output to one of the Denon’s audio inputs.

How do I connect my turntable to my stereo system?

If your turntable has a built-in phono preamp, you can run a basic RCA stereo interconnect cable from its analog output to your audio device’s analog input.

Can I connect my turntable to my Receiver without a preamp?

But if your turntable doesn’t have a built-in preamp (PHONO-level output only) you must connect it to the PHONO input on the receiver. Or use a standalone PHONO preamp that connects bettween the PHONO output on your turntable and one of the LINE-level inputs on your receiver (LINE, AUX, CD, etc.)

Where do you put a CD player on a receiver?

If you have a CD player, for instance, it usually goes on top of the receiver and below the turntable. But you can arrange the components however you like. The important thing is how they are connected. A receiver is designed to receive a variety of audio inputs, so you need to match the inputs to the receiver’s ports.

Can I add a turntable to my AV receiver?

(If you do decide to add a turntable with a built-in phono stage or use an external phono stage, you need to avoid the phono input on your receiver and use one of the standard pairs of RCA terminals). In terms of recommendations, let’s again look at our Award-winning AV receivers.
