    I have had this problem with 2 different units. Replaced the first one and just had the same thing happen again. Both were like new units.

SOURCE: HISS from Numark DM1200 mixer.

All interconnected equipment MUST be powered from the same receptacle or source. The XLR to the speakers should NOT have ground lift. The power for the mixer should come from where the speakers are and be routed alongside the XLR cables. All the other connected items should also be powered by the same source. The ground bounce within a building cannot only cause noise, but can rupture the input circuits of equipment. As an electrical engineer I don't know why manuals supplied with the equipment doesn't go into this more. The professionals at the big venues all know this as they have had to pay to get equipment repaired.

Now to get down to "hiss" once you get the other stuff straightened out, there are two things to know at the start: The first is that due to the statistical nature in electronics "noise and hiss" are among the laws of physics that we can't completely get around. The level of the hiss should NOT be objectionable however. The second thing is that proper level setup is important to minimize the effects of noise and hiss. You should be sending the levels to the powered speakers at near full line level into the line inouts, never mic inputs that some have. Using excess gain at the speakers will amplify any noise pickup on your audio lines. Next, at the mixer, try to keep all the level controls around 10 to 2 0'clock for rotaries and 70% for faders. Excess gain at certain stages will cause hiss to be objectionable.

Also so you are aware you're going to need to pick up an eletrical convertor for electronics built with EURO specs but allows to down step the current to what it is in America. Any Fry's Electronics or Pro-Audio store here in the US will have the one I bought which is a -
MODEL: TC-100A Up/Down Convertor $45.00.
That's it and my mixer is playing wonderfully so there you have it.
Thank you.

I HAVE A NUMARKKMX01 MIXER WHEN I PLUG THE RED RCA JACK IN TO THE MIXER I GET A LOUND HUM


What is plugged into your Numark mixer when this happens? Try disconnecting ALL audio inputs to your mixer, turn mixer volumes to zero and see if the hum is still present. Adjust the volume and check if the hum you mentioned returns. If it is still heard, try new cables between the mixer and amp...if not then start reconnecting inputs until the hum is heard again. It's a process of elimination but not that difficult to find the source of your problem.

Distortion troubles with numark ndx400's


The bad news is it could be any of them. or it could be the lighting- CFL's and regular flourescent lighting are bad for audio, as are switching supplies used in TV's, microwave ovens and some musical gear. They are worse than lighting dimmers for noise.

The thing to do is start at the speaker itself and work through the chain of devices to find the one distorting. An old transistor radio is useful here. Most actually do have enough power to faintly drive a large speaker- listen for scraping and rattling- it would mean the voice coil windings may have come loose or the coil form is damaged from heat.

Move back to the amp input and try again- this time listen for a clipped sound if the speaker checked out okay. It would sound like the Charlie Brown adults in the cartoons. That would be a failure of an active component in the amp. If you now hear rattling or scraping- the speaker voice coil is bad and should be repaired or replaced.

If it sounds good, move back to each deck. apply your radio- volume turned down to an input it one is provided. Each should sound clean like the amp did. If no sound or distorted sound is found here- which is the most probable location, it is likely one of the IC chips is at fault. Likely a 4558 if an IC fault, otherwise suspect dirt or hair on the encoder connected to the spin platters.

I have a Numark C2 19" mixer. I am missing one of the small screws right next to the crossfader and need some replacements. Where can I get them and/or what size are they so I can buy them at my local...


They are LIKELY metric and the best way is to remove another and take it as a sample to a hardware store.

Use a nut to find the correct size thread and then find the matching screw and right length.
