Have a home stereo system with different components, all working fine. Upgraded the old record player to a new dj set up (mixer and 2 turntables) and one speaker cuts out or doesnt work at all when playing records. Radio still works out of 2 speakers, just not the record player...(?)
Old Sony (AC 120V 60 Hz 120 W)
Numark DM950 USB
Stanton T80s (120V 60Hz 10W)
I've had some progress, have tried 2 different amps and 2 different mixer now...
The weird thing is, if I plug a turntable directly into the receiver, everything is great. Once I connect the record player through a mixer and then to the receiver, I can get sound, but its really bass-y and buzzy and essentially just terrible... Such a weird problem...

Re: home stereo audio problems
Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?

i would do a uninstall of anything Made by ion and Re install and see if that solves your issue, Ion isnt a very good dj product so something as simples as this could screw something up. try a fresh install and please let me know what happens and ill assist you from there
It is probably too late to help you, but others might have this problem and we solved the issue by disabling and enabling.
Click on windows button (bottom left hand corner), control panel
- Playback tab
You will find that there are a number of different speaker setups in that area. One set will have the light meter moving, but there won't be sound from your speakers. This is because the modern computer is much more like an amp and has the ability to have different speaker combinations and settings. You only use one speaker set-up.
- double click on a speaker option, advanced tab, and test. If there is no sound, then your speakers aren't connected to that port. Move to the next one.
- Once you find the correct speaker setup for your system, then disable the previous setup and ensure this one is enabled. Once the meter bar lights up for the right speaker combo, all sound will work as expected on your computer.
The modern computer is much like a stereo amp now, and you have to tell it which set to use. (For some reason it works well enough, until you start adding stereo components onto your system.)
Thanks for your rapid response. Fortunately I discovered the problem and was able to resolve it. Whether it is just my computer or all computers I wouldn't know. When I switched my computer off, after recording vinyl to my pc, then switched it back on again my pc had reset the default input so I had to reconfigure it again. Since then I have not used it but wonder if I have to reconfigure the recording device everytime that I switch my computer on. I did make the USB Codec microphone my default recording device and applied the setting but the pc seemed to do its own thing.
What do you mean you changed the voltage? Why would you think this would work? What were the voltage settings originally, and what did you change them to?
If you had too much feedback or distortion, your gain was probably too high, or you had the recording volume on your PC set too high. This has NOTHING to do with voltage. The voltage setting on these units is strictly for 120V or 220V use. Meaning, it can be uses just about anywhere. If your unit is not working, it's because you probably fried the power on it. Are you in Europe, and you tried to set it down to 110/120V? If so, you surely fried it.
