Ok, so I'm pretty new to the world of record players and vinyl but loving it, I have a Hitachi HT-60S from the 80s which my parents gave me and I have also have a Phillips HTS 9800W surround sound system. For a while I plugged my turntable into my guitar amp which worked alright but the sound obviously wasn't very good, now I've plugged it into my Philips sound system but even at full volume it's very quiet is this because I need an amplifier? I thought maybe the Philips would have one built in but I don't know, also I am not plugging in the grounding wire because I have no plug for it on the Philips but I'm not getting any hum does that mean I don't need to? Thanks in advance.
