    I have an ikey RM3 that just started having the same failure. The DRP-1 is the RM3 re-labeled. I suspect that the firmware may have gotten clobbered. Both have the ability to re-load the firmware. But all of the firmware downloads seem to have been removed from the internet.

When I plug in my marantz TT-42 turntable to my Yamaha R-S300 receiver's phono input, I get a muddy and loud sound. I've tested the turntable with direct input to Bose speakers and it works fine.


If the turntable produces good sound with a line level input on another system, you have the turntable with the pre amp built in. That is why the sound is loud and distorted.

I am experiencing a distortion noise in my sony ha21m80 when i connect a dvd or receiver in the av input


Hi,
Difficult to tell without listening to it, but 2 things spring to mind.

Is the screening on the audio input cable OK?

Is the audio level going into the TV too high and thus overloading the input circuit?

Hope this helps,
Brian.

Distortion in my mic


Adjust the preamplifier level to approx. 9-12o'clock on the input trim.

Then adjust the master level to the desired output.

Peavey 16 fx


are you going from the board to a 'mic' input, or a 'line input' on the Mac? you will need to attenuate the signal to a mic input. try reducing output from the board by 50% and reduce the input level on the Mac by 50%, and see if the distortion is lessened or eliminated. From there balance board output to Mac Input until you find what sounds good outta the Mac.

When pressing on brake pedal car shakes ?


First check that your wheels are tightened to the correct torque. If they are OK, it looks like you will have to have your brake drums/discs machined to create a level surface for your brake pads to seat onto. The brake drums/discs can distort with heavy use due to a build up of heat, thus distorting them. When you apply pressure to the brakes, the brake pads ride up and down the distortion making the brake pedal shake; sometimes quite viciously.

Distorted recording and loud


If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?

From the manual....

2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input.

Loud distortion through phono inputs


Phono inputs are designed for turntables only. Any other device will provide too high a signal for that input to handle. The phono input has an extra amplification stage built in. The distortion is because of the high suignal level being supplied to the input. The only way to get this to work properly is to purchase an antenuator which will decrease the signal level to the phono level.

Sound of the recording after burnt to a cd is very low


adjust your top knob which is called the gain, this will allow the incoming signal to be muchlouder depending on where you set it , the bottom fader is for playback volume and mixing and you should also a avolume control for your head set , follow also the recording instructions in your manual for optimal settings , there,s no reason that your recordings should come out with low volume other then your gain control being set to low , hope i was able to help , if i was please leave a nice rating ,sincerely glenn mayer

Sound very distorted


This turntable has a preamp switch on it, which is probably on and what is causing the distortion. Take off the metal record platter by lifting up on the two holes gently. Turn the pre-amp switch to 'off' and then try it again. This is probably it...

Or you can plug it into an input that doesn't have a preamp and that should work.

DISTORTION


1) if you are using the PC sound card to record this is where your hiss is coming from. you need to get a recording card that has low noise or some other recording USB input device to get CD quality recordings

OR

2) if you have to use your PC sound card check your PC volume level for line in, don't let it get high or it will distort. you will have to experiment with the MD4 levels and PC sound card level to find a good middle ground with low hiss and no distortion
and a singer that sings away from the mic to reduce distortion.


hope this helps
thanks for your rating
