Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I need an audio connection from a laptop speaker out connection to a microphone input to a media system. Can this be done? Are there signal level problems involved? Thanks for any advice.

    The microphone input is a normal XLR three prong connection. I assume it is a balanced line to the sound system. Is a transformer needed in the line? Is special grounding needed?

It can be done, and in order to keep from getting the distortion you will need to download a equalizer or mixer program.

See if the laptop has a "line out" option. That will at least be at signal level. The media system should have the ability to handle either line level or mic level. Switch it to line. Even with the "speaker" output, the speakers in this case are small headphones and do not require large amounts of power. With the volume turned down to a low level, the line level input on themedia system should have no problems.

I can probably give you more details if you can provide the make and model of the media system involved here.

    If the only input connector is the XLR connector, then the media system is set up for mic level only. Rather than just the adapter (which may work), I'd suggest that you include an attenuator. This will drop the signal level to an appropriate level for the mic level input. Check the media system for a Line input as well. That would be the better option.

It will work but may sound distorted. Adjusting the volume on the laptop will help.

Can I connect my Behringer PMP 1680s on my Canon 80D's mic input? I would like to use the sounds from my 1680s as soubds for my video recording on my Camera. Thanks alot.


I wouldn't recommend it, as the microphone input is a low level signal, whereas the output of your Behringer is a much higher level signal. You would have to attenuate the signal from the Behringer before connecting it to the microphone input.

Is a microphone an output device?


no, output devices are things like speakers or a monitor. They output sound or images, microphones are input devices because they put sound into the system not out of it.

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

I am digitizing vinyl. I cannot figure out how to connect this HE100 to my computer. phono has only in. turntable will not run through tape, which has record/audio out connections. it seems silly and...


Perhaps you should break this down into its TWO components:

1) Define the Phono source you're using. Is it an old-school turntable that REQUIRES a Phono Preamp conenction on the receiver to generate a useful level and quality of audio: or do you hae a new-age TT that can supply its own pre-amplified signal to ANY Line Level input; or do yuou have a newer-age USB TT that could connect directly to a PC via USB?

2) Anything that can connect to or pass through the receiver can be used as an input on a PC Sound Card via it's Microphone Input (if not via a specific analog or digital input). Run an RCA cable from the receiver's Tape_ or VCR-Out to an adapter that fits the Microphone Input if there is no RCA-style audio input.

Using microphone with aux in feature


No. The aux audio level input is much higher than the microphone output (about 100 times). That's why when you connect the microphone at the aux input (assuming that you have the right jack adaptors) your voice can't be heared ty the speakers (in fact if you scream or speak loudly at the microphone it's possible to hear something in very low volume from the speakers). But there is a solution. If you desperetely need that function, you can buy a "microphone preamplifier", that's the way you can ask for, at your local market.
Post for any help.

I cant make on microphone go thru my amp mixer


It's obvious that there is a misunderstanding. Your FCA202 is designed to get line level inputs (not microphone level) and convert the signal to digital format for the computer to "undestand", it's working like an audio card. So in your case all you need is a microphone preamplifier to pass the signal from your mic to FCA202, or an audio mixer to do that.

How to connect mixer an amp to laptop?


How is everything hooked up?

Mic to Mixer, and Mixer to Laptop? Or is your mic connected directly to your laptop?

To do this properly, you will need a secondary audio input device of some kind that accepts line level input. Microphone inputs are intended for low level signals, and are not going to accept the input form a mixer properly. (you can get it to work, but it will generally be distorted)

There are various USB or PCMCIA audio input card options that aren't too expensive. Once you have that, you would need to route your music and microphone through your mixer, and the output of the mixer to your audio input device.
