      Answer

      Yes, a TurnTable can be connected to any of the Analog Audio Input ports on the Sony STRDH130 Receiver. However, the turntable signal will need amplification from an external pre-amplifier (or an inline amplifier) as this Receiver does not have a PHONO input.

        Answer

        A stereo receiver bundles an AM/FM tuner, amplifier, and various stereo inputs. Some also include a preamp. A preamp is a mini amplifier, and usually features an equalizer. A separate preamp is usually only necessary when using a phonograph (record player). This is because a phonograph usually has a sound output of around 2 milliwatts, but most amplifiers and receivers expect it to be around 200 milliwatts. The preamp bridges the gap, however some receivers such as the Insignia NS-R2001, have a phono input, and therefore do not require a separate preamp. (I don't recommend this receiver, because it is of overall low quality.) I might also suggest that you avoid PylePro products like the plague; they are very low quality, and anything but "Pro". I'd also throw Pyramid (owned by Pyle) and Sherwood products in the same category.

          Answer

          It's not built in, but it is "capable". I bought a nice little receiver for $30 and it works well with the receiver. I was even able to rename the input "Bluetooth". However, just so you know, the receiver does not have power outlets like some do, that let the peripheral go off when you turn power off to the receiver.

            The Sony STRDH130 A/V Receiver can output the sound from both the A and B Speakers simultaneously. There is a Speakers (OFF/A/B/A+B) button located at its front panel for enabling this option.

          how can I hook up an equalizer (which outputs and or inputs)   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            An equalizer needs to be connected to the tape monitor loop on an AV receiver in order to operate. The current line of Sony® receivers do not have a tape monitor loop. For this reason, it is not possible to connect an add-on equalizer to current Sony® AV receivers which includes this particular receiver model.

            The Sony STRDH130 has Portable Audio IN and Red and White Audio IN. If the CD changer has any of the Audio IN connection, you can connect the CD Changer to the Receiver.
