    Yamaha rx-v392 speaker question

    So I picked up a used but in good condition yamaha rx-v392 receiver to hook up my turntable. I have a pair of Bose bookshelf 4 ohm - 8 ohms 10 to 90 watts. When I hook up the turntable to the phone out and hook the speakers up the sound is HORRIBLE to say the least. No matter the combo I try it sounds BAD. I changed the inputs of the turntable to the CD input and the sound is much better but not very 'full' still kinda tin can sounding. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Do you have the ground wire of the TT hooked up? Are the phono cables or cartridge bad? Is the cartridge moving coil or moving magnet? Get some deoxit or tuner cleaner and clean the RCA inputs for the phono preamp on the Yammy. It is worth a try.

    The phono preamp may be bad in the Yammy. If so, you will need an external phono preamp like this-

    Phono Preamps
    Pass Labs X250 amp, BAT Vk-51se Preamp,
    Thorens TD-145 TT, Bellari phono preamp, Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
    Magnepan QR1.6 speakers
    Luxman DA-06 DAC
    Van Alstine Ultra Plus Hybrid Tube DAC
    Dual Martin Logan Original Dynamo Subs
    Parasound A21 amp
    Vintage Luxman T-110 tuner
    Magnepan MMG's, Grant Fidelity DAC-11, Class D CDA254 amp
    Monitor Audio S1 speakers, PSB B6 speakers
    Vintage Technic's Integrated amp
    Music Hall 25.2 CDP
    Adcom GFR 700 AVR
    Cables- Cardas, Silnote, BJC
    Velodyne CHT 8 sub
