The Fives feature a dedicated phono preamp input that will allow you to connect a turntable.
Standard stereo RCA cables (not included)
- Note: Any retail store selling electronics or audio equipment should have RCA cables available. You will not need a specific brand or type. Just a standard stereo left and right RCA cable.
- Turntable (not included)
- Ground connection cable (not included, optional)
- If you have a grounding cable for your turntable, connect it to the GND connection on the back of The Fives and screw the terminal down to secure it in place
- Plug one end of the stereo RCA cables into the Phono input on the back of The Fives
- Plug the other end into the Audio Out RCA jacks of your turntable
- Note: Your turntable may have the RCA cables hard-wired into the turntable. Make sure the red RCA gets plugged into the red input on The Fives and the white RCA gets plugged into the white input on The Fives
- Set the source wheel on The Fives to Phono
Note: If you are getting extremely quiet audio, or extremely loud and distorted audio, you may need to move the Phono/Line switch. If using a phono preamp that is built into the turntable, you will need to have the switch set to Phono. If you are using the phono preamp that is built into The Fives, you will need to set the switch to Line. As an added security feature, you will need to remove the RCA cables from the input jacks on The Fives before moving the Phono/Line switch. The setting will not change unless the RCA cables are unplugged and then plugged back in.
