I have an ION portable turntable that has a line level RCA output, this turntable sounds as though it is miss-matched when playing, the highs are strained and the lows nearly non-existent. The manual insists that this output NOT be plugged into a 'phono-level' input as that may cause damage.
I have a Tascam M-06 mixer that I would like to try using as both a EQ to improve the sound as well as to use the unit for a pre-amp. I don't have another pre-amp source and I would like to connect these to a Toshiba SC-335 MkII amplifier.
My question is this; does the Tascam M-06 have a compatible high level output to connect to the amplifier? This mixer (as well as the amplifier) was given to me by the senior center my mother is affiliated with and I don't understand it well enough to feel comfortable connecting it to the amp without advise. The only info I can find relating to monitors in the Tascam manual is for effects/PGM signals sent to the "phones output" and "VU" meters. I see nothing in the manual about connecting to an amplifier, at least not in a language I understand. Thanks for any response in advance
I know that my best bet as far as improving sound would be to buy a 'real' turntable but then I would HAVE to use the mixer because my AV receiver has no phono input
