A Technical Question for Anyone Who Might Know…

Just a quickie. For any of you who know anything about electronics/home entertainment systems.

Here is my dilemma – or question – for you. If you have the answer, just leave a comment in this entry.

I would like to get a Pioneer PL-990 Turntable and plug/hook it into my Bose CD-radio player. I have the plain Bose CD player/radio which only plays one CD at a time. It is not the real old version as it has no knobs or buttons on the unit but rather needs a remote.

If I buy the Pioneer turntable, do I need anything additional to plug that into my Bose so I can listen to my old vinyl LP’s again? Like some kind of a plug in thing?

As you can see, I am almost totally electronics-challenged. If anyone knows the answer, I would appreciate you leaving me a comment.

Thanks in advance.



I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals…
They are so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied… not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

~ [Walt Whitman, from “Leaves of Grass, No. 32”] ~

    TT – I just watched that video and I still am not sure, but it was very illuminating. This looks like what I want though. Thanks for all your help! Wonderful.

    Here is a video on YouTube about unboxing the PL-990. The man in the video talks about hooking the turntable up to his computer. I’ll give you the video link and a link to send the maker a message so you could ask him about the connectors.


    Hmmmm. If the message link below doesn’t work for you, let me know and I can send the message for you. I have a YouTube account.

    Your paperwork should have a customer service number on it. You could call Bose and they’d be able to help you. If the connection can’t be made naturally I’m betting that there’s an adapter out there.

    You’d think that in this day and age the Bose player would have an Input jack.

    Actually, I have to admit I haven’t actually pulled out the Bose instruction manual that came with it to see, up close and personal, if I can do this. I looked online, even at the Bose site, and all I could find about my specific question was one comment made by some guy who tried doing the same thing for his elderly mother but he was in a site that was for some sort of additional thingy (I can’t think of its name) you had to order so I’m not sure if I need to get that thingy – it was called a “Rolls” – I remember that. Anyway, I will investigate more when I get back downstairs this morning.

    As for that quotation, there is a little story about that which I will write about soon.

    Have no idea, about the electronics, but had to say that your quotation from Whitman is one of my favorites.
