You may have a magnetic cartridge on the turntable and have the turntable connected to a line-level (ceramic) input. Magnetic cartridges have a lower signal level. Connect the turntable to the PRE-AMP or MAGNETIC input.
Use a Stereo Preamp (Cat. No. 970-1018) to amplify the signal to line-level.
You may have a Phono output connected to a Line-level input. A Phono signal has a lower signal level. Connect the turntable to the PRE-AMP or PHONO input.
