Pioneer PL-12D Turntable

Can anyone advise how to connect the above to a modern amplifier, which doesn't have the necessary jack sockets.

Many thanks

Firstly, Chunky70, glad to have been of assistance; sorry I didn't say this back in July, but this site is a lot less alluring now it's become a dog's dinner..

Anyway, Cyclotron2012, what amplifier do you have? I'm assuming from your post that it doesn't have a Phono input, so there will be some further investment to be made.

Update

It seems I misunderstood my son - the problem is not the signal connection but that the turntable took its power from the back of the Sansui amp - I have confirmed this can be solved by simply replacing the odd two jack connectors with a standard mains plug, albeit with a small fuse.

Many thanks for replying

Please make sure that the power feed from the amp is 240V before you plug the turntable into the mains. My sister wanted to do the same with her old tt, (part of an old Aiwa system), and the turntable took its power from the Aiwa amp @ 12V DC!! Wasn't a problem as I had my old Project Carbon tt available so we just swapped her old tt out and mated the Project with the Marantz amp.
