Similarly, do I need a ground wire for my turntable?
While not every turntable model requires a ground wire, you should not assume yours does not. (Regas, for example, do not require the use of a ground wire.) The ground wire is most commonly attached to a “ground” screw on your turntable. The other end then connects to a “ground” lug on your preamplifier or amplifier.
Additionally, do I need to ground my preamp? The preamp, being the heart of the system, should be grounded. The amps, for safety reasons, should be too, but for audio reasons (ground loop prevention) they should not.

Do I need to ground my amplifier?
Amplifiers are a source of a lot of power, so it is crucial they are grounded to prevent any problems. The ground for the amplifier should be directed to a bare metal area of the car body, within eighteen inches of the amp's location. Your objective is to try to ground to the main chassis or the sub frame.
