As you likely know, make sure the S3 switch up front is "up."

I believe you need to use the MMJ connector port and I forget the
direct/null status but can say I have a regular MMJ cable connected
to an H8571-A rev D "headshell" that is connected to a PeeCee cable
(i.e. 25 to 9 pin which may be a "modem" cable) to my Desktop system.
