Re: For Tascam DP02 can't record and listen
Assuming your PA is a Yamaha STAGEPAS (although I thought 500 watts per side was the biggest one you could get). Anyway, on your PA's panel you will have the karaoke machine(s) plugged into the CD ins (top of the panel), while closer to the bottom you'll see the 'monitor outs' L and R 1/4 inch jacks. These are where you'd run the L and R from the PA into your Tascam (or L alone for mono out). The monitor outs are line level and are good for independently powered speakers, recording equipment, mixers etc. Just avoid using any outputs labelled 'speakers'.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Phantom power should only be used with a condenser/ribbon mic. If you're using a dynamic mic (like the one in the photo) you don't need phantom power. Also I run my mics and instruments through a mixer, then into the unit. Also if you're mixing your masters at a low volume, the CD will play at a lower volume. Try mastering at as high a volume as possible, avoid clipping of course. But get it as loud as possible while mastering. Then the master copy should be louder. I have a DP02 and found out it needs decent monitors to mix and master. That's all I've got.
Sounds like you are using the DP-02's 'stereo mix' inputs here. If so, the signal input from those is only routed to the line out and headphone jacks and cannot be recorded using the DP-02.
To record from a stereo you need to take the left and right aux outs (or some other line out - like the tape outs) from the stereo and put them into the main A and B mic/line inputs on far right of the DP-02's back panel. Then assign them to two respective tracks and you can record the stereo output to the DP-02. Just make sure you use a line level output from the stereo as the amplified speaker output can overpower and damage the inputs on the DP-02. You might need a couple of rca to 1/4 inch adapters to accomplish this.
the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.
You cannot rip a CD directly into the DP-02 using the unit's CD drive.
Your choices for doing what you want are:
1.) Rip the CD into .wav files onto your PC using ripper of your choice. Then you'll have to edit the resulting .wav file using a program like 'Audacity' (which is a free one) and convert the stereo wav files into 2 mono wav files. You'll have to save the mono files with dos 8.3 filenames and then import them into the DP02 using the instructions for importing wav files in the manual. To preserve the stereo, import each mono wav file to a separate adjacent track on the DP02 and then pan one left and one right.
2.) You could play the CD on a stereo and connect the stereo outs to the two inputs on the DP02 to record the CD track. You'll need patch cords which are RCA (mini phono 1/8" jack) to regular phono (1/4") to do this.
The DP-01 is like a mixer with built-in recording capabilies. You could plug your tunrntables into your DP-01 inputs, assign the inputs to tracks(channels) on the DP-01, and then output those tracks to two channels on your mixer (which would be connected to your PA.
Alternatively, you could plug the outs from your mixer into the DP-01 either by routing individual channels from the mixer into the DP-01 inputs, or outputting the mix into a single track (or into two tracks in stereo on your DP-01). Just assign the DP-01 inputs as usual to the tracks you want to record onto.
Those are just a couple of basic ideas. You could also route a DP-01 track (or the whole mix) back out the DP-01 send loop and through some external processors and then back to tracks on your DP-01, or you could do this through the mixer and then record the final result on the DP-01.
It sounds like you have connected the two correctly. I can only imagine that you need to check that the hifi source selector is switched to that line-in, it may be referred to as AUX. Check that the recording level control is not at zero on the hifi and if there is a volume control for line-out on the tascam.
If you are able to listen to the recording on via the hifi then you are halfway there even if it doesn't get to the hifi recorder.
If your hifi is a seperates system then you could try plugging the tascam in to the CD input on the amplifier.
