Hello and sorry you're having problems. No there is not a built in phono stage (RIAA correction, 40 db boost for an MM cartridge) built into this turntable so an external phono preamplifier would be needed between the unit and a receiver without a built in phono stage. The unit is a Moving Magnet cartridge so an MM phono preamp is needed. A unit can be purchased for as little as $20 or as much as $500 which will work for this turntable. Below is an economical choice to connect the turntable to a line level Input:
