How To Connect A Turntable To An Amplifier

Posted By: VintageChief

If your amplifier has a phono input, you can connect your turntable with Moving Magnet (MM) cartridge directly to your amplifier. When your amplifier does not have a phono input, you will need to place a phono preamp between the turntable and an amplifier line input. Please note that if you are using a Moving Coil (MC) cartridge on your turntable, the phono-input on the amplifier or phono preamp will need to support this Moving Coal (MC) feature.

Step 2: Connect the turntable ground wire to the ground terminal (typically called GND) on the amplifier.

Step 3: Connect the turntable interlink to the phono input on the amplifier.
