Questions & Answers
QuestionDo you need a receiver for the music to play or can you just plug the record player into the amplifier and play the music?
- Answer If you already own passive type speakers, you will need to install a stereo receiver or amplifier between the turntable and the speakers. Receivers and Amplifier have a POWER amplifier inside to amplify connected sources, such as a turntable, up to a level that can adequately drive the speakers. Another option would be to use POWERED (aka active) type speakers. Powered speakers have their own power amplifier built into them so there is no need for a separate stereo receiver or amplifier. Due to the inclusion of a phono preamplifier in the turntable, the turntable may be connected to devices that either do or do not have a dedicated PHONO input for a turntable. A phono preamplifier raises the phono level signal from a turntable (which is very weak) to a stronger line level signal (such as that which you get from a CD Player) so it can drive the preamplifier section of a receiver, amplifier or powered speaker, then the preamplifier drives the power amplifier. Its all about gain staging so that, in the end, you have a good signal to noise ratio. A phono preamplifier also applies the RIAA equalization curve which is required for the playback of records.

- Answer You do not need an additional amplifier. Turn the phono preamplifier located inside the turntable ON by placing the preamp selector switch located on the rear of the turntable in the LINE position, then connect the turntables red and white RCA male plugs to either the SA-CD/CD, BD/DVD, SAT/CAT, or TV Audio In jacks on the rear of your receiver.

QuestionI have a vizo soundbar and was wondering if I needed anything extra to use this, I really don't wanna buy another set of speakers and a receiver just to listen to vinvlys
- Answer Thank you for your inquiry. If your sound bar has auxiliary inputs this should work.
QuestionWhat's a good set of CHEAP speakers that would work great with this turntable? I'm hoping to find something under $50. I was looking at the Logitech Speaker System Z323 with Subwoofer - would they work? Or would I need something else?
- Answer I purchased a pair of tower speakers on Ebay that were originally used with a living room entertainment center that work perfectly. I bought the pair for $89 and they work fantastic. My advice check out Ebay.
QuestionI want to replace the felt mat with an acrylic one and I read that if the mat is a different thickness you had to adjust the height of the tone arm. Does this have an adjustable tone arm? How thick is the felt mat?
- Answer No, it does not have adjustable arm height. Consider the AT-LP140XP Turntable instead. Please note that the AT-LP140XP is a fully MANUAL turntable however, there are NO automatic functions. Also, it DOES NOT have a built in phono preamplifier. The felt mat provided with the AT-LP60X Turntable is 1/8" (3.175 mm) thick.
- Answer Yes, you can. Turn the phono preamplifier located inside the turntable ON by placing the switch on the rear of the turntable in the LINE position, then connect the turntable to the 3.5 mm AUX IN jack on the rear of the Bose Wave. You will need either an adapter cable which has dual RCA female jacks on one end and a single 3.5 mm male stereo mini-plug on the other end to add to the supplied cable, or an entirely different cable which has 3. 5 mm stereo male to 3.5 mm stereo male mini-plugs on each end in order to make the connection.
QuestionA previous question indicated the cartridge with stylus is included. Correct? It says the cartridge cannot be removed but the stylus can be replaced. How?
- Answer Correct, the cartridge with stylus is included. The cartridge itself is an integral part of the tonearm and cannot be removed, therefor only the stylus assembly is replaceable. The stylus assembly is replaced by hand.
- Answer Yes, you can. You will need the proper adapter cable, or cable, to make the connection however. The Sonos 5 Speaker has a 3.5 mm Line-In jack on the back of it. You will need to either add an RCA to 1/8" (3.5mm) adapter cable to the dual RCA audio cable provided with the turntable, or use a different cable all together to make the connection to the jack The adapter cable will need to be the dual RCA (female) to single 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo male type. Alternatively, you could replace the provided cable with a 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo male to 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo male type cable.
QuestionDoes this come with a cartridge so it's ready to play records? Or do you have to buy separately a cartridge?
