Problem with stereo output on Edirol FA-66

Hi there

I have an Edirol FA-66 and a set of Harman Kardon speakers. The speakers have a small jack and the sound card has a large jack. I have a small to big jack adapter that I use to plug the speakers into the card. Whether I plug the speakers into the back, or into the headphone jack, it seems that I only get one of the stereo channels coming through the speakers. Any ideas?

NB I know that the outputs at the back may only carry one channel, but the headphones shouldn't, right?

Also the speakers work fine when tested on other computers (e.g. my laptop).

Possibly, your adapter of small to big is not a stereo adapter. Seems like a mono adapter.

In 5.1 creative music system only two are working.


Verify the media you're playing is coded for 5.1 surround (bluray or DVD with 5.1).

If it is, you'll need to go into the sound settings and go through all the settings in there for your sound card, to be sure it will push the appropriate codec (5.1, 7.1, stereo, mono, etc.) out the output.

Verify you are pushing the sound through either an HDMI cable, digital coax cable, or fiber optic cable. Regular RCA jacks will only push stereo (2 speaker).

I couldn't get all my speakers to kick on through my Harman/Kardon until I made my PC force Dolby Digital through the fiber optic cable.

I have a Harmon Kardon HK 3370 Stereo Receiver and a Samsung LCD LE40C530F1W. When I connect the stereo Aux jack to the LCD Audio jacks ( red and white rf cables ) I get no sound out via the receiver.


Obviously make sure your stereo mode selector is set to AUX and the volume on the stereo is turned up at least a little when you test it.

If you still have no luck then try increasing the volume on the TV as well. You may have it set so that the level of the audio signal leaving the rear output connectors on the TV varies with the TV volume. That way if your TV volume was turned down or muted when you tested it, then you would not hear anything coming through your stereo.

There should be a setting in the AUDIO OPTIONS menu of your TV where you can switch between a VARIABLE AUDIO OUTPUT and a FIXED AUDIO OUTPUT level.

With the FIXED audio output level, you control the volume of the TV audio coming through the stereo speakers with the stereo remote only.

Otherwise it should work.

Good luck.

Fiber Optic input


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."

Im tryin to hook my speakers to my computer


I don't have a picture to show you but will tell you the easiest way.
There is a cable that has headphone jack on one end and two rca jacks on other end. The headphone jack goes to computer and the rca jacks go to your stereos input jacks. Then turn on your stereo and set it to the input setting. That is all there is to it.

How do i get my FA-66 to work via firewire?? please help!!!!!!!


u're probably trying to connect it with a 4 to 6 pins firewire cable to your laptop right?
if so, the laptop firewire connection is usually the small type (4 pins). this kind
of connection does not give Power to the firewire device.
u can buy a pcmcia card with 6pin firewire connections and usa a 6 to 6 firewire cable
and that will work. i hope. :)

Problem with FA-66


Judging from the wiring diagram on the cover, the headphones are connected to the same output lines as 1 & 2. When you increase or lower the monitors. So do the headsets. The only way to get around it is to find a pair of headsets with at volume control into the wiring of the headsets or plug the monitors into outputs 3 & 4.


Here is the book I saw
