Technics sa8100x reciever


It does have it's own built in amp you know? But if you want to connect it to a more powerful amp, plus it doesn't have a pre-amp out socket the only way would be to have the two inputs of the Tube amp connected by RCA plugs with a Headphone plug on the other end. This would then be plugged into the headphone jack of the receiver. Use the receiver's volume control has an input level control, keeping it very low to avoid damage to the amp. Making the Tube amp do the work.

What a lovely daughter, how very nice of her,

here goes....straight for Mr. Koss

To Operate with AC Adapter
  1. Open battery compartment located at the back of both speakers and remove wires.
  2. Replace battery covers.
  3. Connect DUAL PLUG CONNECTOR on left speaker to right speaker at connection marked "TO LEFT SPEAKER."
  4. Connect remaining wire with 3.5mm plug to headphone jack on your audio source.
  5. Connect AC adapter (not included) to back of left speaker at connector marked "DC 6V." Plug remaining end of AC adapter into wall outlet. Be sure your AC adapter is built with the center pin as ("-") negative. Connect remaining wire with 3.5mm plug to the headphone jack on your audio source.
  6. Turn ON/OFF switch at back of right speaker to "ON."
  7. Set "INPUT SELECTOR" switch to audio source.
  8. Turn on audio source
  9. Adjust sound in the following ways: Turn volume control to desired level; push Bass Boost button located on right speaker to "ON" for added bass; push Treble Boost button on right speaker to "ON" for added treble
  10. Operating a microphone through your speakers require an additional 3.5mm plug to 3.5mm plug cable (included). Connect cable with 3.5mm straight plug to right speaker at input marked "MIC" on back of speaker. Plug the remaining 3.5mm L--plug into the mic input on audio source. Connect your microphone to the front of your speakers at "MIC" input (microphone not included)

Wireless mic sounds overmodulated (?) crackley, distorted.


The Canon HV20 mini plug audio input has a very limited useful range, but you should be able to adjust your setup to get acceptable results.
Just on a side note, you can get a wired lavalier mic at Radio Shack for $15 that could make the problem go away, or at least eliminate a lot of electronics ... but the cable will only be about 15 feet long ... you could use an extension, just make sure it's mono.

Couple notes: One is that the mini plug input on the HV20 is a stereo microphone input, and you're plugging in a mono source. This will not cause distortion, but is not ideal ... a simple stereo adapter to break down the input (mono mic into one side of stereo adapter, stereo adapter into camera) would optimize the situation.
Another thing is, you have at least two volume controls that absolutely MUST be adjusted correctly ... hopefully one of these is the problem and soon will be the solution.
I don't know the Sennheiser wireless set in particular, but it probably has a volume control on the receiver box (which might be over by your camera) .. the other is actually IN the camera software ... go through the menus and see if you can select audio input volume and try the "auto" setting, and also try the "manual" setting, and when on manual, turn it down. This is the audio input volume control for the camera itself. It is the level that corresponds to the small level meters you can see in the camera's LCD screen ...
Good luck! You are not alone with these issues ... the beauty of modern video cameras is in their small size, but it's also a problem because you are not provided with proper audio inputs - you have to deal with the stereo mini plug input, which is less than ideal.

I bought a connector that you would use for an ipod but, I still have no sound. On the back of my Vizio TV...where the RGB cable is hooked up, there is a small headphone size jack there. Is that the one...


Clarifying...

You are trying to play audio from the TV through your computer?

You need an adapter cable that has an 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end, and two RCA male jacks on the other end.

The RCA connectors are to be plugged into your RV using the AUDIO OUT jacks (usually red/white) and the small plug goes into the auxiliary or line in jack on the back of your computer.

Then, Double-Click on the volume icon in the system tray (this should bring up the system mixer), unmute the line in sound if it is not already and run the "slider" control for that input up about half way.

then, Tune the TV to whatever channel or input you wish and adjust the volume level on your computer to a comfortable listening level.

Rob

ps. Some TVs don't use fixed level audio outputs, and the volume will vary as you run the volume up/down on the TV, too...

Trying to use a microphone but not sure how to hook it up


No because the mic is a signel in device and the headphone jack is a signal out jack! meaning if you plug the mic into it the mic will act as a speaker and music will come out of it and ruin it!
I would buy an adapter at radio shack and plug it into the phono input on the back of unit! and if you dont have a phono input you will need to buy a small pre-amp and plug it into the aux or tape input!
That will work!
Please rate my answer!
Thank You!

Here is a link to what your looking for,

I can't tell from the add but hopefully it comes with adapters for both plugs that will work on your mixer. It does have the one for the headphones but the one for the mic is not clear, they are not interchangeable.

You would obviously plug the headphones into the headphone jack. The knob labeled "Phones/Control Room" will control the volume without changing what's being broadcast. What you hear in you phones is exactly what you are broadcasting.

The microphone needs to go into either mono channel 1 or 2. The adapter for it needs to be a mono Tip/Sleeve adapter as the more common stereo Tip/Ring/Sleeve adapter may cause some problems. You can tell the difference by looking at how many sections are on the plug divided by a little black line. Two sections is mono, three is stereo.

Adjust you microphone level by setting the volume knob, the one on the very bottom, to the 12 o'clock position. Then turn the gain knob, the smaller plastic one on the very top, until the desired volume is reached. If you experience any clipping or distortion turn the gain knob down until it goes away. These are general settings, you may want to experiment until you get the best level without noise.

Headphones with mic model # na


Most headsets do not come with a volume control interface but your mic can be adjusted by going to Sound and audio devices via the control panel of your start menu. The volume can be accessed through the audio tab. Also, depending on the program you are using i.e. Skype, Team Speak or other, your volume settings can also be adjusted within that program as well. Hope this helps.
