Hi @Doug Laundry the output jack at the back of the receive is not balance port. But if you’re going to use a balance cable to hook up device, it definitely works better then an unbalanced cable. But you might need to be careful of that not all the TRS cables are balanced.

I have an issue. I have a samsung tv with a samsung soundbar. Both don’t have RCA. Both has optical. I have a digital to analog converter that goes from the tv to the k036 receiver. I also have an analog to digital converter that goes from the soundbar to the k036 receiver. And it doesn’t work. Am I doing something wrong? Setting wise, etc.?

If I use the headphone jack and plug to my iphone directly, I get it to work, but it wont show up on my tv. I have to read the lyrics on my phone.

Help!

Hi @sue we will need a bit more info. When you said it worked if you hooked up with your phone, do you mean the music went from phone to K036, got mixed with mic sound and sent to the soundbar? You can hear the mixed audio from soundbar?
If yes, then it would be the connection issue of TV and K036 or TV and smartphone. How do you project your phone to TV, through Roku or Chromecaster?
We think it may take some steps to fix. You can contact us on our Facebook to have quicker reply. Page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore/

Just purchased the Fifine M-K036 and would like to connect to my HP laptop computer and have the sound projected (both music and microphones) to a Klipsch audio computer speaker system via Bluetooth. Is this possible? How to I use the microphones with my laptop?

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 13, 2019

Hi @Jim I think your laptop has only one 3.5mm jack. Therefore, in order to input microphone audio into laptop, you’re going to need a simple USB sound card (that has 3.5mm headphone & microphone jack). Next, right click speaker icon at the right corner of computer-recording devices-right click USB device-properties-listen-listen to this device. You’re able to Bluetooth the mixed sound to your speaker then.
But there’s a problem of such setup. When you input audio to computer, the audio process takes time, which results in delay.
A better solution is to disconnect the Bluetooth and to wire up the devices. It will goes like this: computer laptop 3.5mm jack out to K036 R+L IN, mixed audio goes from K036 R+L OUT to the speaker 3.5mm in jack. But it’s a better setup when you don’t have to record down the audio with your laptop. Otherwise, even though there’s delay, you still need to go with the first setup.

I just got this mic. My TV is a samsung smart tv that only has an optical audio. I also have a speaker JBL partybox 100 to be specific that I would like to use it for Karaoke. My speaker has AUX in/out. Will this 3 combined works? If so what would my set up would look like? thank you!

So my Samsung TV is a smart TV and I just connect directly via Youtube app on phone. So I control everything on my phone and stream on TV.

When I connect my soundbar to converter to fifine receiver and the other end connects from fifine receiver to converter and to tv, i get no sound at all if I use the Youtube app on the TV or phone.

If I disconnect from fifine reciever to TV, and use the aux cable and plug directly to my phone, mic and music works and comes from soundbar. However, I get nothing on the TV.

I just want to be able to play music from the youtube app on the tv or my phone, have both the music and the mic sound to come theough the soundbar.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Hi @sue I’m sorry that we still don’t get how you connected K036 with TV. But I guess, you input the K036 to your TV RCA jack. That’s why you got no sound, because there’re two signal source inside TV, one is K036 the other is your phone.
What you actually should do is to connect K036 with TV through TV output jack. First off, check up if there’s RCA OUT jack at the back of your TV, if yes, then the RCA OUT to K036 R+L IN, and keep the result soundbar setting same, you’re good to go. If no RCA OUT jack, use the convertor, specific DIGITAL (in) to ANALOG (out) to take optical out from TV to R+L IN jack on K036, the rest setup also remains the same.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 14, 2019

Hi @CRISTEL COLLINS a convertor, specific to DIGITAL (input) to ANALOG (output) adapter, will get you hook the three devices together.
Setup will go like this: TV optical out to convertor digital in, and from its analog out to K036 R+L IN, at last from K036 R+L OUT to your JBL AUX in jack.

I have a projection screen with yamaha receiver and powered speakers. I connect my PC to HDMI input 1 and the K036 to the AV1. If i change my receiver to AV1 I hear the mic through the speakers, but is there any way to connect the mic so it plays through the speakers at the same time as HDMI 1? Its a new PC and has built in Mic and no MIC input in the PC. Not sure if this question makes sense. Obviously the K036 is working fine, i just don’t know how to play Karaoke off youtube and use the mic’s at the same time?

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 15, 2019

Hi Ryan, thanks for reaching out. AV receiver is pretty tricky to setup, so it's easy to run into problem. With all the info I got from you, I think it's just the problem of finding the right RCA jack at the back of your AVR to plug in K036. Therefore, we need the model info of your Yamaha AVR. As for the other info you gave, we don't recommend to input K036 to your PC, even if there's a mic jack. It will result in delay, which you definitely dont like in Karaoke. So your overall current setup is in the right direction, but just need to fix some small problems. Just let us know the model of your AVR we will proceed from there. And you can contact our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or email: webfifinemicrophone to get easier communication.

If I wanted to connect my k036 to my sound bar via hdmi would that work? I have a rca to hdmi adaptor or is it only a rca to digital optical that will work?

My mics no longer connect to the reciever unit. It worked when I first bought it it but it no longer connects. New batteries and everything.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 19, 2019

Hi @Joseph Cruz since you have contacted our support email, we will let our colleague take care of your case. You can proceed more details with them.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 19, 2019

Hi @Shahin first off, to decide using a HDMI or an Optical jack, you need to check up if the HDMI is ARC jack. If yes, you’re better off going for the optical jack.
If it’s not an ARC HDMI jack, but you still ran into problem, you could confirm the I/O of convertor, check whether the HDMI or Optical jack is labelled with OUT while the RCA is marked as IN.

I have a sound bar connected to my smart tv (with chromecast). All working good. Now i want to add the K036 . Now my sound bar is connected to my tv with optical. I also have RCA in/out on my smart tv. How do i connect my K036, do i have all the cable necessery ?

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 19, 2019

Hi @pierre girard an analog to digital adapter will get those devices hook up together. Since you have contacted our support email and our colleague made the reply, they should take good care of your case. You can proceed more details with them. Hope it will be fixed soon!

David Fernandez

December 21, 2019

Hi,
I just bought the K036 system and I am trying to connect it to my TV and my AV receiver. My TV doesn’t have RCA sound outputs and it doesn’t have digital sound outputs either, just HDMI. But is has a headphones output and I wonder if I could use it as the sound output to connect it to the R+L In jack of K036.
Thanks in advance for your help.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 22, 2019

Hi David Fernandez you can connect K036 through TV headphone jack. But I think there will be more factors involved. Since you use HDMI before, then you should use either soundbar or speakers that are connected to AV receiver as output device. Would you like to tell us which is your case, soundbar or AVR? And the specific model number? You can message us with the info on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or official email: webfifinemicrophone

Happy Holidays! I have an LG tv model 65uk6300pue and a Yamaha home theater system model YHT-4930ubl. Can you tell me the correct and numerous ways I can get this connected?

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 26, 2019

Hi @Charles Muniz we may also need to know if you use Roku or any TV box and if they’re plugged into Yamaha receiver or TV. But in either situation, an digital to analog adapter is still needed. And since you have contacted our support email, I think our colleague should take good care of your case. If there’s any confusion about the email reply, feel free to let us now!

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 26, 2019

Hi Chanin Tavita did the A mic of the system work before or it just stopped working out of box? It may sound silly, but have you replace with fresh batteries? We knew it's a gift, but if it's possible to get to know when was the system ordered? Therefore, even if nothing we can do about this, we still can tell which exact frequency of mic for replacement. And you can order that on our accessory website. You can contact us on Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or support email: webfifinemicrophone.com with the info

Chanin Tavita

December 26, 2019

I replaced batteries several times. Both A & B mics was working. Can’t you just replace mic A? Is there a way to change the frequency channel? Please respond. Thank you.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

December 26, 2019

Hi @Chanin Tavita I understand that you’re urgent to get the mic working. But we have also tried to get to know more about the situation and to do the preparation for the replacement.
Because the frequency is not changeable, that’s why we asked in last comment is it possible to know when the mic is ordered.
And maybe you can message with the order info (it’s necessary, because if the frequency doesn’t match, the mic still doesn’t work. and there’re two versions of K036. The correct frequency, I’m afraid, can be found out only by the order info) on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or support email: webfifinemicrophone.com so that we can respond in a shorter time or get everything about this issue in a proper timeline.

Results: No sound, No voice heard, ALL lights form microphone and receiver are on.
When I speak to the mic the blue lights of Mic A, Mic B from the K036 receiver is reacting with my voice. But No Sound, no Voice heard from the soundbar.
Pls pls help… asap.. I want to return to Amazon if I dont get this going.

Hi @Gil I think you want to have both music from TV and K036 mic sound coming out of soundbar? If yes, then the setup could be easy. Thanks for telling us the model number which makes the troubleshooting much quicker.
Your devices and our mic system are working fine. But there’s a problem with the wiring-up which result in no sound. Below is the step by step tutorial.
1.Disconnect optical connection between TV and soundbar.
2.TCL headphone out to K036 R+L IN.
3.K036 R+L OUT to soundbar AUX in.
4.Select the AUX mode on your soundbar.
You should be able to hear music and microphone audio by then.

A follow up from my last comment connecting TCL 65R617, Bomaker Odine II and K036 microphone.
The results, the mic did work. I can hear myself. But could not hear or no sound YouTube karaoke after following the steps below.
1.Disconnect optical connection between TV and soundbar.
2.TCL headphone out to K036 R+L IN.
3.K036 R+L OUT to soundbar AUX in.
4.Select the AUX mode on your soundbar.
You should be able to hear music and microphone audio by then.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

January 12, 2020

Hi @Gil at the first step, you should not just disconnect the optical cable, but also need to confirm the cord is unplugged from your TV. In case the audio signal is still being sent through the optical jack.
Next, confirm if all the jacks are working: instead of the K036, plug a headphone to the 3.5mm headphone out jack of your TV, hear if there’s any sound from the headphone; instead of getting music from TV, connect your smartphone into K036 input jack and still output the mixed audio to soundbar, and see if you can hear mixed sound this time.
You can. Btw, make sure the background music knob on K036 receiver is turned up.
You can message us on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or support email: webfifinemicrophone.com with info and order number. So that we would have a more responsive and constant reply.

what is the best way to connect K036 ?
Samsung TV has the follwing Connectivity:
2 x HDMI
1 x USB
1 x Optical
1 x RF
Wi-Fi

Thank you for your help.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

January 14, 2020

Hi @Fred T. since you use Apple TV for karaoke in this whole setup, there’s no need for DVD, so we will neglect that device in the following tutorial.
Since no audio output on Apple TV but only HDMI, and the Harman Kardon AVR cant do the mixing job, I’m afraid that we need to change quite a lot of your current setup. And the whole setup will run like this:
1.Unplug Apple TV HDMI and TV monitor HDMI on AVR.
2.HDMI Apple TV to Samsung, choose signal souce on Samsung to be HDMI from Apple TV.
3.Samsung optical out to a digital to analog converter (you need to buy such device).
4. Converter out to K036 input, K036 output to any one of the analog input on Harman Kardon AVR. Choose the corresponding source on AVR.
You should be good to go by then. If there’s any confusion, you can message us on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or support email: webfifinemicrophone.com

FIFINE MICROPHONE

January 15, 2020

Hi @chester the K036 receiver has only amplify circuit to increase the volume. Thus for a dynamic microphone that is not so sensitive, the volume could be low. If cranking up volume control for the wired mic doesn’t help, maybe you can try connecting through the 3.5mm input jack at the back of K036 receiver with an adapter. If there’s no extra input jack on your speaker, the last sort is to use a micro-mixer to connect your wired mic with K036 or connect K036 and your wired mic with the speaker.

I have a question regarding my set up connection. Can I use my blueray dvd player 5.1 home theatre connected to my k036 to my samsung smart tv ? I already have the optical converter. I tried everything what is shown and written here in your website but it doesn’t work. What I’m trying to do is to i want the music and voice coming out thru my home theater.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

January 31, 2020

Hi @Edward could you give the specifc model number of your Blueray DVD and Samsung TV? And is there an AV receiver, or just DVD serves as the pre-amp for speaker? If there’s also an AV receiver connected with speaker, please also let us know the model of the AVR.

Purchased the K036 system at Amazon. It is connected to a Samsung HD TV (no 4K), Denon AV Receiver and SVS speakers (5.1). It sounds great! The mics are really clean with no static. I believe I got the music volume at 1/4 and the mic volume at 3/4, to match both volumes. I am using Youtube through an Amazon Fire box for the music/lyrics source. One cable Analog sound connected to the K036 from the TV and then a red/white 2-cable analog sound connection to the receiver. Wife is very happy!

Hi @Jorge Rodriguez thank you very much for sharing the setup and use experience! It means quite a lot to both of us and other customers who want to use the K036 with their home theater. Appreciated!

Harry

February 19, 2020

Hi, I have had my K036 for about 5 months. It worked fine until the last month, and now the microphone volume on both mics is very low. Even if I turn the input volume up all the way, I have to virtually yell into the mic and put my mouth right next to it to get any sound out of the speaker. Nothing else about the setup has changed. Thanks for your help.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

February 20, 2020

Hi Harry.
According to what you said, it’s probably the problem of jack or wire.
So here are all three steps you need to follow step by step.
1. Change another wall outlet to power the K036 receiver.
2. If you connect the K036 with the 3.5mm cable at the very first time, plz change to connect it with 6.5mm cable.
3. If there are other input jacks on the speaker, plz run a test plugging into it.
If it doesn’t change anything, plz send the result and your order number to web@fifinemicrophone.com.

My husband was gifted a new fifine mk036 and we were trying to figure out how to connect it to our Samsung Smart TV (connected to BOSE solo sound bar). The TV and sound bar are connected by optical cable but TV has RCA audio jack and sound bar has AUX jack. I tried playing around with the cables but nothing seemed to work. The mk036 is working on our old vizio tv and the Bose soundlink. Are we missing some cables to connect it to our smart tv and sound bar?

FIFINE MICROPHONE

March 08, 2020

Hi there Marissa Adle
Sorry for the late reply. The info you provided was quite useful, it seems your’re going to need an optical in to RCA out convertor to add the K036 between your Samsung TV and Bose sound bar.

The exact setup will go like this: TV optical out to convertor optical in, convertor RCA out to K036 receiver (the black box unit) 3.5mm input at the back, K036 3.5mm out to Bose AUX jack. You’re good to use it for karaoke then.

In case we miss anything, it’s better to let us the model number of soundbar and TV. Sorry the pics are a bit blurred we cant get that info quite clearly. You can message us back with the info on Twitter.

Hi thomas bousek.
It depends on your speaker. If it is the passive speaker, you should use the amplifier. But if it is the active speaker, you dont need the amp.
