Hello Joe, my name is***** can help you with this problem. If your new receiver does not a a "phono" input then what happens right now is that the signal/sound level coming from your turntables cartridge is way too low to be amplified by a standard line level input . What you need is a phono pre-amp like what you can see at the link below, just copy /paste the address in your browsers address bar; http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html Or on ebay ; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-RIAA-Phono-magnetic-cartridge-Turntable-Preamp-PRE-amp-plug-into-AUX-socket-/330836742674 You may also be able to find it at local electronic reseller stores and perhaps curry`s if you have one near you . This will connect between the turntable and one of the inputs of your receiver Hope this help and please take the time to rate my answer positively (use the smiley) if that answers your question , otherwise do not rate at all , just let me know and we`ll see what can be done. Note that you can reach me here at any time after rating if you have questions .
