Default Crosley 6005a sound problem

I bought a Crosley CA6005a. The Radio sounds fine, but when I try to listen to a record it sounds tinny and one one channel plays in both speakers. Here is a sample taken this morning. The Pink Floyd is taken from the radio and The Cars is taken from the vinyl.

Duffy Laudick - Compare - SoundCloud

Any help would be great.

You have a phono input problem. First, is there a magnetic or ceramic cartridge? If the former, is there a proper preamplifier? Tinny phono sound is usually a case of improper equalization. As you may know, records are not recorded with flat frequency response; the highs are preemphasized and the lows deemphasized. The playback amplifier must have the opposite curve to create a flat overall response. It seems your system isn't doing that.

Ceramic cartridges have lousy high frequency response and so don't need corrective equalization. Magnetic cartridges do need it. Also, check the wiring to make sure you have both channels connected properly.

It is a ceramic cartridge. I'll check the connections
