I have an old Techniques system that I got when I was 16. Still have everything except the receiver, which blew about 10 years back. I hooked up an old surround sound receiver to the CD player, via the EQ, and - man - it jams! Haven't listen to those 200 watt speaker in years. Don;t know exactly what wattage the receiver puts out, but on CD the thing gets plenty loud (though, understandable, not as loud as my old receiver).
Problem is, hooking up the turntable into the same audio outlet, it's only about 1/4 as loud. I've tried by passing the EQ, fiddling with the connectors - when I get feedback it's ear shattering - but when everything is connected properly it is just not loud enough, especially compared to the CD.
What gives? Is there something I could jump the turntable into to amp up the volume (besides another receiver). Why is the CD player loud, but the turntable just audible?
