It have microphone, but i don't know how to turn volme up my digital Olympus camera fe-20 please help me


A make, model... (etc.) would prove
EXTREMELY helpful in producing a
SPECIFIC answer... (but alas)...

Most high end microphones have pre-amp and amplifier requirements to make them work...

For Example ... On your PC if you go to your
sound/audio icon
you will likely find the VOLUME CONTROLS
in the CONTROL PANEL for EACH device.

INCREASE your volumes there...

Or for discrete amps...
use their volumes...

HAS ONLY THREE QUATER VOLUME USING ORTRFON OM10 CARTRIDGE


If you have tried a different cartridge and got full volume, then either the Ortrfon is faulty or that the pre-amp inside you amp has problems working with that make of cartridge. If you have lower volume with another make of cartridge too, then the pre-amp in your amp is faulty. Remember this pre-amp will not affect any other amp function, only the record player volume. Most of these pre-amps are a single IC around some minor components. If replacing the IC doesn't correct the fault, it could be one of the minor parts around the IC that's pulling the volume down.
It's also possible that the Ortrfon causes the fault on the pre-amp too. Perhaps it gives off a stronger signal that causes the pre-amp to reduce the volume. I'm not saying the Cartridge is to blame, but maybe there is a fault on the pre-amp that is only triggered by that brand of cartridge?

The volume on technics SL-BD22 turntable will not turn up and stays at one volume


Since the turntable itself doesn't have a volume control the problem is with the amp it is connected to. It should be connected to an amp with a dedicated phono socket. It's no use connecting it to a tape or aux or CD socket. These sockets do not have a built in pre-amp for the magnetic cartridge. If your amp doesn't have a dedicated phono socket then you can buy a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp that will plug into a tape socket etc on the amp and have the deck plugged into it. If plugged into a none dedicated socket though you can hear it, the volume will be very low compared to other sources. If you have got it plugged into a dedicated phono socket and the volume is still low, then the internal built pre-amp inside your amp for the deck has failed and will need to be repaired. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other functions of the amp.

Music volume low when digitizing vinyls


The software itself should come with an sound imput level control. But if you can't find it or it's on full then there are ways round it. However it depends on how the turntable is connected to your computer. Most turntables require in an amp to have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to boost the level to that say of a tape. Rather than mess around sometimes it's better to get one of these pre-amps and have that between the turntable and the computer. Then the sound should be the same level as a tape signal. You will have to bypass that pre-amp if you are recording anything else such as tapes to your computer. Or you will get a noisy loud signal!
Just search for a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" on the web.

I have 2 qustions?


my guess is that the yamaha has pre-amp outs, most yamaha stuff does, and that is the one you should be using for the main, and hooking up to the onkyo, and letting the yamaha be your zone controler, and the onkyo be your remote amp for your second zone (if your onkyo had pre-amp outs it would work how your trying to do it, but it dont) so exchange there places, and run a pre amp out to any input of your onkyo, and you'll have total volume control of your outside speakers

Can dra 37 be used as a pre-amp without connecting speakers


If you mean a sa control center for source selection, volume and tone control, yes, but NOT for a turntable (no PHONO).

Controlled audio goes emerges from the pre-out. Page 9.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-DRA-37-Receivers-manual/id/696dj086/t/2/


But you could still use its own speaker terminals if your exxternal amp has is remote or has its own volume control to match it up with other speakers.

How do you hook up a external amp to a yamaha HTR-5790 av receiver? Do you have to change any settings?


Elaborate a bit on what you're trying to do if this doesn't work for you.

This unit has Pre Outs near the center of the rear panel for all audio channels which will allow you to use external amplification for any speakers you wish to use and the receiver will still control the volume.

See #12 on page 10 of the manual. Try retrevo.com

Just run RCA cable(s) from the desired Pre-Out jack to the input(s) on the external amp with its speaker(s) attached. Set the external amp's volume (if it has one) to very high, then leave it alone. Run through the Yamaha's speaker location and volume settings to level-match the external speakers to the rest.

If you want to simultaneously use the Yamaha-attached speakers for the same channels as the external amp you'll have to match the like channel volumes to each other using a volume control on your external amp, then level-match them as a unit to the other channels.

How to connect a power amplifier to an AV receiver


To achieve this, your AV receiver needs to have a pair of RCA/phono sockets labelled PRE-OUT. This output is the same as is normally fed to the receiver's own integral power amp, so the audio signl at this output is affected by input selection, volume and tone controls. Some receivers even have metal U-shaped links on the rear panel which connect between their PRE-OUT and MAIN-IN or POWER-IN sockets, so removing these links both makes the PRE-OUT available to connect to your separate amp, and disconnects the reveiver's internal amp, so you don't end up feeding signal to both power amps. I have seen Technics and NAD receivers and amps with this feature.
Don't connect your power amp to the REC-OUT or TAPE-OUT sockets of the receiver, as this output is not affected by the receiver's volume and tone controls, so you won't be able to adjust the sound using the receiver's controls.

Distorted sounds


The AT-PL120 uses a magnetic cartridge to extract a music signal from the record. Magnetic cartridges all put out a very weak electric signal, and so their output must be strengthened, or amplified, to where it is as strong as the input from, say, a CD player. This amplification is provided by a pre-amp. If your receiver has dedicated "phono" inputs the pre-amp circuits are already in the receiver. If you do not have dedicated phono inputs you must either buy a pre-amp, or buy a magnetic cartridge turntable with a pre-amp built into itself. The AT-PL120 has a built in pre-amp. You can switch the AT-PL120's preamp on or off. The switch is located under the platter at the back side of the turntable. Take the platter mat off and turn one of the platter's holes to the back and you should see the switch through the hole. If you push the switch to LINE OUT the preamp is turned on and the turntable sends an amplified cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to a receiver inout suitable for a CD player (a "high level" input). If you push the pre-amp selector switch to PHONO OUT the turntable sends the weak unstrengthened cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to the receiver's dedicated PHONO inputs so the signal can be amplified with the receiver's own pre-amp circuits.

If everything is set wrong (i.e. LINE OUT (pre-amp on), and connected to phono inputs) you are applying two steps of strengthening to the turntable's signal which is too much. The resultant sound will be garbled. Try not to do this!

The other way to do everything wrong is set the pre-amp switch to PHONO OUT (pre-amp off) and connect the turntable's cables to a high level input. If this happens the turntable signal receives no amplification and the resultant sound will be thin and weak.
