Customer Question

I have a denon avr x1100w av receiver. My receiver works for my tv and bluetooth. I also have a sony turntable which connects through a red & white connection cord. I connected it to the AV's "media player" input on the back of my receiver, and put the setting on media player. The sound will not come through. The turntable is powered and does work. I have since tried a multitude of options. Any advice? Thanks.

Hi there, and sorry to hear you're having trouble.
The denons analog inputs require a higher level signal than what your turntable can provide. You will simply need to add an external phono preamp to bring it up to a sufficient signal level:
Note that after connecting this you may still need to go into the denon setup menu, under Input Select (do this in media player source mode already) and set it to analog, rather than auto/hdmi/digital.
Best regards,
