I recently got a Pioneer receiver from around the mid to late 70s and it all works perfectly except the turntable. I also got two speakers with it. The thing is, the speakers are RCA, and the only outputs are RCA. So dumb ass little me takes an alligator clamp, clamps it to the output and clamps the other end to one of my better speakers wire's. Of course, it didn't work. The RCA out sparked and now I can't get audio from that channel w/ the original speakers. The other channel works just fine, so I didn't blow the amp. I have no idea what happened, Google comes up with zero results. This receiver sounds incredible and looks incredible, I'd hate to be the one to kill it. Can someone here give me some advice? Nothing smells or looks blown, all wires seem to be intact. Left channel works, right channel is the broken one, but can still be sorta heard when cranking the volume all the way up. If worse comes to worse, I have a few AV stores around me that may be able to repair it. I once bought a receiver from Goodwill and it has an AV repair centre's phone number on the back, they're in Akron. So I could give them a call.
