Question about Numark Industries Numark iCDMIX 3 Dual MP3/CD Performance System with Universal Dock

Open Question

My Numark ICDMix3 hums when connected to mixer/power amp.

Everytime I connect the ICDMix3 dual CD player to my my mixer amp there appears to be a humming sound. I checked with my other system as a check and it never happened. It only happened when it was plugged in. This mixer would also start the CD skipping on the right CD player.

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.

You do need an amp.and a mixer. You mixer should have microphone jacks, and a pream or switch to allow you to use lowZ, High Z or amplified microphones.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I connect my laptop to my numark icdmix3


If you want to mixdown onto your laptop, get a cable with RCA left and right on one end and an 1/8 headphone jack on the other. On the back is a master out w/left + right and go to line in or mic input on laptop. If you don't have a line in, you have to disable the mic signal +4 db setting in control panel/audio properties volume control. Open properties there and add mic volume control, and open advanced to turn off +4db setting.

I have an american delux telecaster with noisless pickups and it started to produce and annoying buzz sound and i am getting electricuted everytime I play and touch the mic and i have a strong feeling its...


You are looking at the WRONG end of the guitar cable. You have a VERY unsafe guitar amplifier OR the mixer that is connected to that mic has an UNSAFE grounding condition.

If your guitar amp is an old one that has a two wire cord and a switch you change to reduce hum, take it in to have a three wire power cord installed IMMEDIATELY. Only plug into grounded receptacles. This is needed to reduce electrical noise and hum but MORE importantly is personel safety.

If the problem is with the mixer and the electrical service to the mixer, better get a professional in to analyze the problem before somebody is injured.

AS A START do this: VERIFY that ALL interconnected equipment INCLUDING your guitar amp iis powered from the same source or receptacle. This includes the venue power amps, mixer, any CD players, etc. Professionals run power back from the stage source to the mixer alongside their snake to avoid just the problem you are seeing. When they need more power at a venue, a power distribution box is used that conditions the building power and insures grounding.

Im trying to hook up two sets of passive speaker, one pair is connected to a QSC amp and the other pair is connected to a Kenwood amp. Is this possible without using another mixer like a mackie 1402.


you should be fine, you can get splitters, little adapters to split the input cables into 2, so that you can use one ouytput to run 2 channels. just hook up the output cables to the output on the numark, and use the splitter adapter to split the sound between the 2 amps.

No sound


Your power amp should be connected to MAIN OUT left and right. NOT the MAIN "in".

The CD is connected correctely as you described. Make sure the CD has a line level output to match the input expected by the mixer.
Note:Walkman style CD players require a special cable to go between 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA plugs.

You have to advance the MAIN fader.

You should be using TRS interconnect cables from the mixer to your amps OR using XLR cables.
