Input LP's to my computer & play thru X-Fi sound card

My old record player and Harman/Carden HK 3400 radio receiver is still playing my PL's OK but they should sound a lot better digitised and thru the X-Fi

Is it just a matter of attaching the current output (going to the JBL's) to an input on the X=Fi and using ''Rec'' on the sound card. ???

Under the connections is a warning
Speaker Impedance 1 or 2 : 4 ohms min 1 or 2 : 8 ohms min both ''min''.

Thanks for any help, Larry

Digitizing sound does not improve its quality. If your LP's sound like they do when you just play them through a stereo then the sound card is doing its job, which is to reproduce audio. If you want to change the way it sounds look into software to buy to do so. But simply running it throuch a analog to digital converter will not make it sound better when your source is an LP

Recently I bought a Harman Kardon HK 3770 Stereo receiver. My question is " can I use a Bose 901 Series VI speaker with this receiver?, since I plan to buy a 901 S VI speaker.. The receiver has no tape...


From the description of the Harmon Kardon, it sounds like you should be able to use the speakers, but you will not be able to use the active equalizer. The equalizer is designed to be cabled into the tape monitoring loop and allows you to listen to the equalized signal coming back into the receiver. Attach the +/- speaker wires to the right and left channel speaker connectors on your receiver.

My home audio Phillips LX3700 receiver will play DVD input and radio input audio but will not play aux audio. I realize this is an old piece of equipment now, any help is welcomed! Thanks, Keagan


Depends on what you try to input on the AUX. If you try to connect an old record player it won't work. The AUX needs an input voltage of at least 0,18 V (180 mV) and can handle voltages up to 10 V. an old record player only gives a few mili volts, so it won't work.
If you have an old Tape deck, that you can use to test the AUX input.
I don't think inside your receiver is anything defect. like the switch, but in rare occasions that could be the problem too.

No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

do you remember how your connection was before the RR tape deck? if so connect it back that same exact (when every thing was recording / playing) way as before....(you also need to purchase 4 gold tip "y" connector jacks (2 RCA female to 1 RCA male)) ... in / out jacks you just plug the cassette deck will be shared with the RR tape deck...just note you will not be able to record from cassette to RR tape or vice versa...but you will be record from all other sources...

I want to put my LPs to an external hard drive, what do i have to do?


Plug your turn table into your input sound card (line in on your sound card) Use a program like Nero Media Player, or any digital recording program ( Sound Blaster or Wave Studio) Tell it to save the file as mp3, that simple. If you are an experienced Computer user and have a Wave Recording program such as Audacity [free] or Adobe Audition [$$$] you can do this: 1. Your record player must have a LINE OUT.....usually go from your stereo receiver [You can get turntables with internal Line outputs...this is what I have...via ebay] 2. Output from Receiver [turntable] must be the small [headphone like plug...used to be called Sony Plug...now it's the 3/32nd I believe.... 3. plug this into the line in of the sound card....it's the arrow that points INTO the little hole. Now the sound card can read the signal.....but wait...! 4. You must enable the little box in the sound card properties called "Line IN"....put the check mark there. 5. How to get to the Properties? Bottom right of screen there should be a speaker ICON....double click that. Then go to File....Properties....record.....then look for the LINE IN....check it. If you don't see it. Then you have to ask someone in person to help you. 6. If you get it working. Great! 7 Now open a recording program and press record....then play the record. You should see a wave file going across the screen. Then save it as an MP3 file. 8. Advanced tip: if you record at a rate of 59594 instead of 44100 then you can play the 33 1/3 speed at 45 RPM and save about 30% time in recording from a record. Then convert back to 44100 and it will be normal speed. I do this on ALL my LP to MP3 recordings... The above is for more advance type computer users.

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5


I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

Sony MiniDisc car stereo


It sounds like you have a newer portable minidisc player, and an older deck. There were several upgrades over the years for ATRAC files, and some of the newer recording formats are not compatible with older players.

Your MD player probably isn't LP capable. Attempting to play an LP recorded MiniDisc in a player that is only SP capable will produce no sound even though the display (time counter, track name) looks like everything is operating properly. Record the MD you were attempting to play in SP and you will get sound.
