Only if the turntable has a suitable preamplifier built in; or you buy a separate preamplifier to go between turntable cartridge output and the Sony amp input.

Telling us the TT model would be an excellent start.;)

Looking all around the TT does not seem to have a built in pre-amp. Therefore you would require a Phono pre-amp between the TT and amp.

You will need a phone stage and two sets of RCA cables.

One of the PRO-ject phono box models should suffice for £50. However, keep an eye on the classifieds.
