Question about Sharp CD-XP7700 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Music plays, but vocals are weak

Somehow my stereo has been adjusted to where you can barely hear the vocals when playing a CD, even though the instruments play loud and clear. I think that it is an equalizer problem, however, the options I see are just to hit "pop" or "rock" or "classical" to adjust it. It doesn't have individual equalizer bars to adjust. Any idea of how to fix this? Thanks!

Check and make sure you hook up the speaker wires correctly to the stereo, they are color coded. This unit does not have manual equalizer settings.

I use Samsung C3010. when playing music player, I don't hear any voice. I only hear the instruments. I've tried many airphones but nothing. can it be solved?

How are you obtaining the music that you play on the Samsung C3010? If you're recording the songs yourself, it sounds like you are recording one channel out of phase with the other. This phasing "effect" is how vocal eliminators work. Try playing back music from another source and see if the vocals return.

The Graphic Equalizer pattern control is not working correctly - I can hardly hear the vocal on my CD's when playing even though I've selected vocal. Vocals are outplayed by background music.

That sounds more like a polarity, or phase problem. Make sure your speakers are hooked up correctly, with the correct colors going to (+) positive, and (-) negative. Make sure your rca connection are correct, and that every connection has a left and a right. No stereo-to-mono adapters.

Is setting to "vocal" an eq selection, or a "dolby" stereo selection?

Are you using a dolby surround stereo receiver with left, right, center, rear, etc.?? If so, try turning off any effects, or anything that would send signal to the center speaker.

Lastly, depending on what the source of your music is, it is possible if your connections or receiver settings are not correct...that the music upon playback will be out of polarity, meaning the vocal portion will cancel out. Combining left and right signal together can sometimes do this as well.

When playing music, can here vocals sometimes.

You need to get a new sound card because the one that you have is going out.

Can't hear voice of singer on speakers, more of an echo sound

An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).

I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.

Hope this helps!

No vocals!

Maybe your headphones are pulled out halfway.
