If all is working, then all you need is a pair of speakers.
The turntable plugs into the 'phono' input on the amplifier.
Check the condition of the stylus before playing any vinyl.
(As well as the condition of the vinyl itself).

Start here with the turntable instructions:

Can't tell from the pics what is going on with the Phono inputs on the Amp as they look darker than the other connections? The turntable has a built-in Phono stage so if can be connected to the Aux Input on the Amp of switched to Line on the back of the unit.

Test the TT first to see if it turns as it should. If it does, then get some speakers and hook those up. Play a record to see if things work. Then start to clean things. Get a record brush and a stylus brush. Thakker make decent quality stuff. You might need a new stylus depending on the life it has lead to this point.

Regarding speakers, you can buy a pair of Dali Spektor 1s if you want a 4" inch speaker pair due to size considerations. There are the exception I am aware of among 4" inch speakers that do not have bloated bass. Best to buy a pair of speakers with a 5" to 5 1/2" woofer cone which is the maximum for this amplifier. In both cases you can increase the bass through the tone controls.
