Arrow Quiet Turntables.

This question might has been asked before, and for what I read I could need some Preamps, but I have two GLi SL-2500 Pro vinyl turntables and a Newmark M1usb Mixer. I have grounded both turntables and there is no hum it is just really quiet even with everything up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Weebees.

you are using the phono and not the line inputs on the mixer?

Phineas is on the right track. Only possible issue you have with that mixer is that you have the switches on the back set to Line, which would eliminate the phono boost.

Make sure you are switched to "phono" on the rear.

I do have them plugged into Phono and have the switch to phono. Could it be my speakers? They are not highgrade at all.

Passive? I am not sure. I got a 5.1 system with my computer a along time ago and I am just using them for now to get it all set up. I am just using two speakers nothing fancy about them.

do the speakers have a power connection of their own/feed off a usb supply or do they have to run through an amp?

They do not have any power connection of their own. They are just plugged right into the back of the mixer.

Alright. Thank you very much to all that helps. I will be on the mission to finding new speakers.

you might want to read up a little on how such things work - you dont necessarily need new speakers:

- you either need An amp to sit between the mixer out and some passive speakers, or
- a set of active speakers, or
- route the out from the mixer into a computer/hifi or some other device with a working speaker system...

if these are computer speakers and your sound card has a line in the easiest route would be to connect the mixer to your line in on the pc.

From a Recording Standpoint:

That model mixer doesnt have a built in Pre-Amp (unlike the pioneer 600 model and later). I would pick one up =D
Like a Yamaha Audiogram, or an M-Audio PreSonus....

Run it into the computer using USB rather than 3.5mm jack, You'll notice an almost immediate difference.

Also think about investing the money in an active studio monitor setup and run it out of the master out on the Pre-Amp


-hope this helps
