    The mixer has 5 channels to which you feed inputs from your sources. Each channel has a gain knob on it as well as VUs indicating the dB level in each. It starts with green LEDs and up to red which indicates you are running higher than desired. You turn gain down on nixer to avoid that. However my gain is down all the way and turning up slightly puts into red.

    OK that suggests the signal is way too hot, but you didn't have that problem with the same equipment connected to a different mixer correct? Behringer messed up the gains on another mixer(VMX1000).. in that case is was with the microphone input, that means it's not inconceivable that they did something similar with this one. Can you borrow another mixer to test this theory?

    i still have my old mixer so i could plug that back in and see. Also I just ran a USB input from my laptop into the mixer and it plays perfectly with mixer and speakers behaving impeccably. So I think the issue is isolated to the phone inputs now. Perhaps I need to replace the RCA and ground cables from the turntables into the mixer - they are quite old. Or perhaps and of more concern is that mixer is poorly built when it comes to the gain settings for those phono inputs.
