Headphones not muting speakers


Novice Member

Am getting back into the world of hifi after a LONG hiatus.

my query is....why does sound still come from my loudspeakers when I connect my headphones to my amp?

Apologies for the seemingly slow reply....

Amp is a Sony TA-FE330R, speakers are Gale mini monitors and turntable Sony PS-LX330USB.

Not the best setup in the world I know. But it was all that I could afford on my budget with the space I have available.

Lots of people listen to both Speakers and Headphones, so they don't want the Speaker to automatically turn off.

Most amps like this have a switch to turn off the speaker. Typically a Speaker-A/Speaker-B switch will turn the speakers off. I believe this amp has a Speaker On/Off switch.
