How do I connect a record player or turntable to my RIVA S?

The RIVA S is designed to work with most modern music players.  Turn tables tend to output sound at a lower volume level, but RIVA's Phono Mode increases the gain on the 3.5MM input so the unit can support a lower-powered input. Please note that you will need a turntable with a built-in phono preamp, or an external preamp, so that you can connect to your RIVA S via the included RCA to 3.5mm cable. 

If you would like to plug in your turntable to play a record through your RIVA S, engage the Phono Mode by:
1. Plugging a 3.5 mm stereo cable into the Aux jack on the backside of the RIVA S.  The Input button will turn green.
2. Press and hold the Volume + and Volume - buttons together for approximately five (5) seconds.
3. The Input button will turn orange.

To end Phono Mode, hold down the Volume + and - buttons for five (5) seconds.  The input light will turn green again.

NOTE: Use the Phono Mode only with record players.  Use with any other device could damage the RIVA S and void your warranty.
