Is there a microphone built into the recorder and how do you get it to work


If your recorder has a microphone-in jack on it you can plug a mic into it directly and that will be recorded as the signal to whatever you're recording to. Your local Radio Shack will carry the plug converters you'll need if your microphone plug is either too large or too small for your mic-in jack.
Good luck! William

I have TX-SR503 onkyo receiver. I want to connect a microphone to it so that I can do a karaoke. The unit does not have a socket for microphone. It has a socket for phones. This socket does not appear...


The reason that jack doesn't work for a microphone is because it's a headphone jack. It's meant to send a signal out to headphones, and it doesn't work as an input. If the receiver doesn't have a microphone input jack (and it would be clearly labeled as such), you'll need to connect your mike through the auxiliary input. You may be able to connect with nothing more than an adapter to switch from the plug on the end of the mike cable to the RCA jacks on your receiver. The output level on some mikes may be high enough to drive the auxiliary input as-is. More likely, though, the mike will need a little boost to make it work with the receiver. The receiver needs a "line-level" input, which is higher than the output of most good-quality mikes. To get the mike up to line level you'll need a microphone preamp. There are many types from many sources, at a wide range of prices. Here's one I have used as an example.

You might also want to look for a small mixer like this. The mixer would let you combine your mike and music source into a single line-level output you could run to the receiver, and use the receiver just for the amplifier function.

My Onkyo RC-160 will not come out of the audyssey calibration mode. The microphone is not plugged in, I have tried a hard reset, pulling the power plug and nothing will bring it out of that mode.


It could be bad connection in microphone input jack and receiver think that the microphone is still plugged in. try to plug/unplug the microphone several times it should clear internal contacts of the connector and resolve the issue.

What is the function of the Line/Micro button on the back of the RCF ART 200A?


Micro stands for microphone
Line stands for line in

So you can hook up a microphone or maybe a ipod/recordplayer/ ect ect

Microphone for my YAMAHA HTR-5440


Let me make this clear to you that your Yamaha does not support Microphone but the trick is you can still do it. All you need is a stereo jack to a RCA connector cable.Check this out http://www.mediacollege.com/audio/connection/jack-stereo-rca-2.html It is easily available in the market. The stereo jack will fit into your microphone and the RCA to your Amplifier/Reciever. Plug the RCA into CD/Tape input but not in the Phono n do your thing. Let me know if this works,coz I'm really curious.

I need help!!! my headset is buzzing lol


check the audio setting. If AUX is turned on instead of Microphone, it will cut out because its waiting for an input from another source.

make sure the LINE-IN isnt turned on or the S/pdif-in.

Only have on the ( PLAYBACK, WAVE, CD AUDIO, MIDI, and Microphone. And there not muted or turned down.


If its USB it may need drivers but they should have come on a CD with it.

Also make sure that if your using sound card, that its set up in the audio properties to be the audio renderer

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW WE CAN GET THE MICROPHONE TO WORK ON THE ROCK BAND SET WE PURCHASE TODAY. WE HAVE IT PLUGGED IN BUT IT STILL SAYS FOR US TO PLUG IT IN.


For rock band, when the microphone is plugged in, use one of your controllers (ie, turn a controller on and connect it by holding down the Xbox center button on the controller), do this after you turn the game on, but before you choose any game modes... Once, done, chose your mode, and have fun!!!

The microphone does not have any buttons with it, that is why you need a controller to have it enabled
