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!

Re: Music plays, but vocals are weak

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 burned a disc of music but doesn't play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System.

Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

I have an old Denon DC-30 hi-fi system. When playing CDs, the music comes through loud and clear but the vocals are 'muffled / muted'. Can anyone suggest whatv the problem might be.Many thanks.

If a wide range of music comes out ok, I would dare say it is just some setting that is turned on, and or the EQ has been adjusted, maybe removing the mid tones where most vocals are. So have a look for any DSP (digital sound processing) options or EQ (Equaliser) and adjust them and see.

When I play something using the axillary hook-up the sound is low.

It sounds like the Pre-Amp for this socket has failed. They are often one IC that does all the work.

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds

Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

Is there some way to connect an ipod to a Philips mc-m570 stereo?

the interface will probably only work with the phillips software, but many of those stereos support playing from a flash drive.

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.

Can music be transferred to computer and then be burned to cd

(Yes) What do you mean by transferred to computer? A stream (music play like a radio) a Download (a file saved to your computer) to record a stream to a audio cd recorder is easy. You need a cable with a 3.5m plug one end and 2 RCA plugs on the other end (red and white plug) Use the plug that looks like a headphone plug, plug that into the computer headphone or speakers and the others into your stereo red into the red hole and white into the white hole choose (AUX) now play the music from your pc you should hear it playing out from your stereo. Your all set. (have fun)

A download: A music file is stored on your computer. When you choose to download a file always remember what folder it is in! for a mp3 file you can use windows media player to burn cd. (must have a CD or DVD Burner installed in your computer to do this) if not don't fret just see above it will also work on downloaded music.
