Regardless of which turntable you own, it is going to have the standard RCA audio connection ports installed. This allows you to not only hook up the equipment to a stereo system but to a full surround sound receiver. This increases the number of speakers used to reproduce the music, giving you a completely surrounded audio experience.

Plug the RCA audio cables into the "Audio Out" ports on the turntable.

Connect the other ends of the cables into the "Audio In" ports on the surround sound system.

Power on the turntable and the surround sound system, then select the audio input you are using with the turntable (the connection number is listed next to the ports you have the RCA cables inserted into). The audio from the turntable is now created by the surround sound system.
