Often a phono preamplifier will be required to connect a turntable to a receiver or amplifier. However, if your NAD receiver, amplifier or the record player itself is equipped with a phono preamp, simply connect an RCA cable (red and white) from the left and right channel output of the turntable to the phono input on the back of the receiver or amplifier. You must also connect a ground wire from your turntable to the ground terminal of the receiver or amplifier.
If a preamp or phono stage is not built into your receiver, amplifier, or the record player itself, the PP2e Phono Preamplifier or PP4 Digital Phono USB Preamplifier will be required. Be sure to make note of the type of turntable you have (moving coil or moving magnet) before purchasing any phono preamplifier and set the device accordingly during setup.
