    i'm looking to get a 5.1 or 6.1 receiver. don't want to spend too much but my question is since i'm going to be using this mostly for tv/movies and my records i need to be able to connect a turntable. do i NEED to have a phono input? all the lower priced receivers don't have this. so if i CAN connect a turntable without having a phono input (where would i connect it?) it would be a great help to my bank account.
    thanks in advance for any replies!

    If your receiver don't have a phono input then you have to purchase an external phono section (phono pre-amp) and use one of your aux inputs. The phono section cost less than $50.00 at Radio shack. Better ones will cost $100 or more and can cost in the thousands when you get into High End gear. You're probablly better off spending the extra $50 on getting a receiver with a phono section. It'll most likely sound better than the Radio Shack one.
