How do I connect my hifi to my turntable?
To connect a turntable without a built-in preamp to a mini Hi-Fi system, you will need to use a standalone preamp between the turntable and the mini Hi-Fi system. You connect the RCA cable from the turntable to the input on the preamp. And the output on the preamp to the LINE input on the mini Hi-Fi system.
What setting should my record player be on?
Simply switch the turntable back on, place your record onto the platter and select the correct speed setting – there should be a button on the plinth that allows you to do this. If you’re playing a 12-inch you should select 33 RPM (revolutions per minute). For 7-inch vinyls, select 45 RPM.
