Really confused on how to connect 2015-02-15 20:34:48 Hey All.have recently decided to make the trip into vinyl. However quite confused on how to connect everything (as I only own active speakers) and don't know the lingo that well (e.g. what each output and input is). I'll explain what I've been trying to do and what equipment I have available and hopefully someone will be able to help. I know I could buy some passive speakers but don't really want to spend more money unless it's the only option.I've bought myself a Project Essential 2 turntable, have my friend's Kam dj 2 power amplifier and my own Klispch Promedia 2.1 speakers (note these are active and include a 200-watt digital hybrid amplifier with a miniplug input). I was hoping to convert the phono output (I may be incorrect here, not 100% on the lingo, it is one red and one yellow cable) from the turntable straight into the active speakers using a adapter and using the miniplug input. I achieved some sound coming out but it was very patchy/fading in and out (I think this is probably the adapter as it didn't sit in there properly). Could anyone let me know if this is a feesable way of getting the record player going? And if so which adapter do I need to buy for this to work? Lastly, if this isn't possible could anyone let me know how to connect the amp to the speakers? I can easily connect to the amp, so if I had passive speakers could use the turntable, but obviously don't want to spend unnecessary money.Cheers for any and all help!
