That sony, like most modern digital av receivers, is not designed to support older equipment like the turntable. While it has some analog inputs, it does not possess the necessary amplification to run a turntable. You can do so, but would need to add an external preamp in between the stanton and the sony. Here is one I'd recommend: http://amzn.to/2vgxOBr

You simply plug in the red/white out of the turntable to the inputs of the preamp, then out of the preamp to the sony, plug in power, and it should work for you.

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service as this is the only way I am credited for my time. Hopefully I have earned 5 Stars but if not please let me know what I can do to ensure you are satisfied. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at http://bit.ly/2rRmuH2 and ask for Nathan.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,

Nathan
