Tape out of receiver for phono to amp?


My setup is Mag.3.6r, Krell 250,and KSP 7b preamp with a vinyl front end. After setting this up I found one channel not working and the sound seemed muted in the other. Suspecting the preamp I used a receivers tape out in place of the preamp. Know all I get is amp hum through both the speakers and amp as well.

Have you tried aux inputs?

Not a good idea. The tape output is most likely ahead of the volume control on the receiver, so you will have no control over volume doing that.

As Uru suggested, you could try feeding the receiver's tape outputs into the preamp's aux inputs.
