    Muzak, What are you listening to?   

     Not a "what I'm listening to" at all, but was hoping somebody here could offer some advice. I just picked up my first record player yesterday (second-hand) and am pretty stoked on that.

    However, when the guy showed me how to use it at his place it sounded just fine. Plenty loud and I could tell his receiver wasn't turned up all the way.

    When I hooked it into my receiver this morning to try it out it seems to play properly but I have to have my receiver turned up literally to max volume to be able to hear it, and it's nowhere near as loud as I'd want it to be during rockin' out times.

    Any suggestions? It's a very basic player with a plug-in and RCA connections as the only cords. No volume adjustments that I can find anywhere.  

    (Receiver is a Pioneer VSX-820-K, player is a RCA LAB-1200)

     it sounds like you are pluged into a non amplified rca connection.... is there a phono specific spot on ur reciever? if so plug in there and not just one of the video1's or aux spots... most other devices are pre amped before hitting ur system but a good turntable won't be.... i'm pretty sure that's what it is.

     You are correct, sir. Thanks for heading me in the right direction. I don't have the means to solve the problem right here at home, but at least I know what I need to do now.

    Found something called a phono pre-amp that hooks in between the record player and the receiver. Something like 15-20 bucks or so.

    I listen to so many different kinds of music, but if you are an indie hip hop fan, do not sleep on Mr. Invisible:

    Hey Dave, long time.... not spending too much time here as I'm working my ass off these days. It's OK as things should slow down by November, just in time for the winter. Today's Corp workplace sucks.

    Hope all is well !!!

    without a doubt my fav nofx and punkrock song in general, outstanding lyrics

    used to listen to punkrock alot in my highschool & uni era but my interest faded away during following years, except for nofx, they seem to be growing with me
