Em chỉ dùng mấy tính năng sau : , expander, compressor, normalizer
để mấy bữa e post thông số chi tiết nhé

My father bought a Sennheiser e945, it's a dynamic mic. I don't know if it's any good since I don't sing Karaoke.
But what surprised me was that it didn't have an on/off switch. I've read here that it's better to switch the mic off when not singing.
So should I tell him to get 1 with a switch? Or does it have little impact? Anyone tried that mic and is it any good?

Second, I've read here that XLR cables are better, but my father's mixer doesn't accept that connection. Right now he has XLR to TS.
So the better choice would be to have an XLR to TRS (balanced) cable right? Would it better to buy a XLR to XLR cable and add a TRS adapter?
Or is just the same thing. I'm a little confused.

Thanks a bunch.

All of my mic's do not have switch.
I think live performance should not use mic with a switch.

Chào Baldinghamster,
Senheiser only make cable mic e815s that has on/off switch. This mic is discontinue, u may find it on ebay.
Senheiser e835 or e945 cable mic doesn't has on/off switch.
My brother in-law own the e945 and he liked it.
Senheiser make good cable mics, I own some e815s and e835 cable mic. And wireless mic.
The 1/4" mic input at the mixer is mono so buying xlr cable with trs adapter will not solve the problem.
If the mixer mic channel has on/off switch for that channel then use that to turn off when mic is not in use otherwise turn the mic volume down.

Is the mic(e945) causing a problem or the feedback causing a problem?

Explain the system sound: bị rè, bị hú,humming noise or something else.
Mixer: Behringer XR16
Mixer: Roland VS-2480 CD
Mixer: Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2
Monitor Speaker: Roland Power Speaker DS90A
Headphone: PreSonus HD7
Microphone: Wireless mic Sennheiser eW100 G2(old mic), cable mic e835, condenser mic Shure KSM32

I only heard for a little time, but it's definitely not feedback. It's noise. Like when I plug the mic and turn on the volume without music or singing, I'll hear noise.
I thought an easy way to remedy that problem was to change the cable and get one with a TRS connector instead of TS. It might not be the mic though because it also happened with his older mics, but they were dirt cheap so ... I guess it was to be expected I guess lol

Thanks BPham, and NUB too

I know this is a late response. I just want to add my thought in case anyone else has the same issue.

Baldinghamster, the noise you hear is called "self-noise" that each equipment has and contributes to the final sound. Most likely, it is coming from the mic Pre-amplifier inside your mixer. The home-style "karaoke mixers" are notorious for having noisy pre-amps. The fact that they only accept TS connectors for microphones make it even more susceptible to interference noise that is picked up by long, unbalanced mic cables. We think that if we connect a cable with TRS connectors into a karaoke mixer that accepts TS connectors will decrease the noise, but it does not help. (It's like watching VHS tapes with an HDTV will not turn the video quality into high-definition.)

What can you do to get rid of the noise completely with this kind of home-style karaoke mixer? Nothing. You need to buy a mixer with quieter mic pre-amplifier.


By the way, I will use your problem and add it to my FAQs in the original post. Thanks for bringing up the issue.

Wow, one post cleared a lot of questions i had for building a new karaoke system. Aznwonderboy, hats off to you!!! thank you!!! but now, I have another huge problem...I'm not so sure what to buy!
what would also be really helpful are, for newbies like me, recommendations for the uncommon the components like mic,mixer,compressor, EQ, that won't break the bank. I think that would go well with this thread. can you suggest a few choices:

Component-----------------Name/Model----------Price---------Where to buy

Mic: -----------------Wired SM58----------$103 --------- http://www.amazon.com/gp...UTF8&me=&seller=

Mixer---------------------?this any good? all-in-one mixer/compressor/EQ http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/StudioChan/

Compressor----------------FMR RNC 1773--------$175---------- http://www.amazon.com/gp...UTF8&me=&seller=

EQ------------------------?

Amp/Receiver--------------?any standard 5.1/7.1-$150-$500----pick one: http://www.newegg.com/Receivers/SubCategory/ID-488

Speakers--------------?pair of polk monitors--$200-$300---- http://www.newegg.com/Pr...iption=polk+monitor& x=0&y=0 - the polk 60 pretty good for $99/each

also craigslist.org & slickdeals.net are good places to hunt for good deals on some of these.

I'm glad to hear that it's been helpful. There have been many posts and recommendations on different components. You can search the forum for other people's inputs and reviews. There are just TOO MANY WAYS to build a karaoke system. Most importantly, your karaoke system ultimately depends on YOUR BUDGET and HOW USER-FRIENDLY you want it to be.


As a starting point for a budget of $1,500 USD, easy to set up and control, AND still sounds great, I suggest the following:

1. Mics: two MXL V67g (or any large condensor mics for under $100 each). $200
2. Mixer: Allen & Heath ZED 10FX. Price: $240
3. Speakers/Amps: a pair of EV ZXa1 powered speakers ~ $1,000
4. (And four 25ft XLR cables for the two mics and two speakers) ~ $45 for all four at MonoPrice.

DONE.

Those are retail prices. I always start off by looking at MusiciansFriend.com for standard price. Then, I look on Amazon/Craigslist/eBay to see if I can find more savings.

Some people may question my pick on using studio recording mics like MXL V67g for live use (instead of Shure SM58 or Sennheiser series). I'd say that large condensors will give you a lot more sound quality for the same price. Yes, they are sensitive to moisture (spit), but I'd sacrifice durability for the "Oh, so good!" sound.

If your budget is bigger, get A&H ZED 12FX so it has inserts for compressors. Buy an external compressor (to control the dynamics of your voice) like a DBX 266XL or FMR RNC for ~ $100.

For a lot more money and slightly better sound, you can buy QSC K8 speakers instead of those EV ZXa1. (I prefer the powered speakers because I don't have to worry about which amplifier to buy and how to match the Ohm and Watts appropriately with the speakers.)

If you already have a receiver and home theater speakers, then you don't have to buy new speakers. I think they are good enough for karaoke (as long as they are not small cube-like speakers). Plus, they look so much better than those bulky PA speakers.



Once again, a karaoke system can be as complex as you want it to be. For me, sound quality has to be the #1 priority. Then I pick my components based on this question:

-Do I want other people in my family to know...how to turn it on?...and adjust the settings by themselves? (Yes, I do. So I can't add too many components. Too many knobs will scare them.)


Other than that, I can't tell you how those individual components will sound ...ALL TOGETHER in YOUR ROOM with YOUR VOICE. You just have to buy and experiment.
