grounding a turntable with connect

  • 8 December 2019

Loving my connect and turntable (Denon SB-400). The turntable has a built in switchable pre-amp and the connecting RCA lines have a third ground wire attached to their run, to run from the turn table to an external amp (according to the turntable instructions).


anyone know - If I’m using the built in pre-amp do I need to ground the turn table? 

if I still do need to ground it, given the connect does not have a ground, what are the best options?


these maybe are more questions about the turntable, but hoping any connect experts might be able to help

Ground is more important when not using the built-in preamp. I recommend ignoring the ground in your application. If there is no significant hum, declare victory and enjoy the music.
