Turntable problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm new to turntables and recently got a technics  sl b5. I put a audio technica vm95c on it and have a Pro-Ject Audio  Phono Box DC. The problem is that it is still very quiet and a lot of static. I'm not sure if the turntable is broken or not. When I got the turntable i put a new belt on it and that was it.

Isn't the Phono Box just a phono stage interface? I did not think it has an amplifier built into it. I have a Pro-Ject DC Carbon turntable, with about a $60 Amazon pre-amp and it works fine when hooking up to a receiver. 


What are you plugging it into?

You need a pre amp. I had the same exact problem with mine. Even at full volume on the receiver it still wasn't loud. Put a pre amp in between and it gets plenty loud now. Find a like $60 amazon phono pre amp solution and you'll be good to go.
