Connect Turntable to Audio Equipment
Connect the left and right channel (usually white and red connectors, respectively) output from the turntable (usually under the turntable) to the phono input on the back of the receiver or amplifier. If there is no phono input, a phone pre-amp may be required. Do not connect to any input other than phono. A single ground wire must be connected between the turntable and the ground post (or a chassis screw) on the back of the receiver or amplifier.
