Hi Jay.
The connection is Sony tv XBR-65X850E → K036 → Vizio soundbar SB3851-D0.
1. Connect the TV and K036, using the Digital optical to Analog RCA converter and 2RCA Male to 3.5mm Male Audio Cable.
2. Connect the K036 and soundbar, using the 3.5mm male to 6.35mm male Audio Cable. ( The 6.35mm pin plug into the K036, the 3.5mm pin plug into the soundbar)

Hi guys,
I had received your k036 wireless mics about 6 months ago. I connected it to my speaker and it worked very nice. I wanted to know a way how to connect it to a pc or laptop so that I can record vocal clips. Thanks

Hi @gregory kozeroff it’s not designed for laptop, so it could be tricky to setup with computer, especially you also need stereo.

First off, a USB interface or USB mixer is required. Otherwise, the result will be quite poor, if simply using TRRS cable to hook up K036 with laptop 3.5mm input jack. But even though with mixer or interface, there’s no way to have actual stereo sound, because the A & B channel are mixed before the signal is sent out of the K036.

With a mixer or interface on hands, you can have our K040 to get stereo recording. It has two balanced output to send Mic A & B signal separately.

Hi @DrummerX as the reply we made under @gregory kozeroff’s comment it’s not designed for laptop, so it could be tricky to setup with computer. A USB interface (such as Behringer UM2) or USB mixer is required. Otherwise, the result will be quite poor, if simply using TRRS cable to hook up K036 with laptop 3.5mm input jack.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

April 28, 2020

Hi @Ruddy um there should not be quite noticeable because both the TV and microphones audio were mixed before being delivered to soundbar.

Was the echo feature on? Then turn its dial all the way down. And disble the sound effect on your soundbar as well. Depending on which audio comes out faster, you would like to turn down its volume level.

If all adjustment doesn’t help, maybe you need an acutal mixer to have audio from TV and from K036 together into mixer and get them delivered to soundbar through the low latency jack on mixer.

Hi, how to connect K036 to my Samsung MU6100 TV & Yamaha YAS 209 soundbar, both TV & Soundbar don’t have 3.5mm Jack & RCA. TQ

FIFINE MICROPHONE

May 05, 2020

Hi @Siu you will need two adapter for the setup. One is digital to analog convertor for wiring of TV and K036, the other is digital to analog one for K036 and sound bar.
The first one: https://www.amazon.com/PROZOR-Digital-Converter-Optical-Toslink/dp/B00KNNSKV0/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=2PC1JP1EWBVTF&keywords=digital+to+analog+audio+converter&qid=1566531007&s=gateway&sprefix=digital+to+analog+%2Caps%2C345&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyUFIzV1RRSEZXVE01JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzE2NTU3MVpMT0ZBNFVBMzRDUSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwOTY3MTg2MjNUNEw5U1NQRzIxUyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

I have a bose 300 soundbar, and i have the rca to optical converter, and when i plug in a receiver, it wont make any sound but the AF light on the receiver keep flashing when i turn on the mic.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

May 09, 2020

Hi @Nghia the setup with only bose 300 soundbar is simple. So the problem is whether a TV is wired or other source is Bluetooth with it? If yes, just unplug and disconnect them. Next, check up the jack connection on K036 and convertor. We’re not sure how to put it in a good way, so we just speak straight forward: please make sure it’s K036 OUT jack to the convertor RCA IN jack at last from convertor optical OUT to soundbar.

Hello,

I am having an issue I am connecting my Quantom Dot Samsung with a soundbar. I connected the optical to the soundbar but the mics do not sound. I followed the steps to connecting the soundbar only has optical but do not know where to go from there I have youtube app to connect karoake or can use the smart phone to tv which will work as well but still is not working.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

May 13, 2020

Hi @Jorge Esteban Montes it would be better for us to get the model number of your TV and soundbar? But according to your description, basically you will need two kind of adapter to plug K036 between your TV and sounbar.

TV optical out to a ditigal to analog convertor, covertor to K036 in, K036 out to an analog to digital convertor, convertor output soundba optical in.

Hi @Gabriela Peixoto um sorry to hear that. Such issue does happen, since the connectors of those two adapter are the same, just the difference of direction. It seems there’s no way but to return this wrong one.

Hello, I hope you can help me. I have a Rockville RPG 122k that I want to hook up possibly your K036 system for Karaoke from YouTube.
My TV is run through my Blu-ray player and the RPG syncs to the Blu-ray player. This works great. Now I need a dual “wireless” mic system that will hook to the RPG. Any help hear would be great. Thanks!

FIFINE MICROPHONE

May 25, 2020

Hi @Timothy Ryan most of blue players don’t have analog output, I think that would be your case as well. If so, then there will be great change in your whole setup.
1.Disable Bluetooth or any wireless connection between player and speaker.
2.Check if there’s 3.5mm or RCA out jack or only optical out jack on TV.
3.3.5mm/RCA out to K036 in (or optical from TV out to converter and converter to K036 in).
4.K036 out to speaker.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

May 25, 2020

Hi @Brian S could you give a more specific model number of your Samsung TV and HK soundbar?

If TV without RCA/AUX out, a digital to analog adapter is needed. If soundbar without RCA/AUX in, another adapter-analog to digital one is required.

June 04, 2020

Hello, I have a karaoke system that has HDMI, RCA, a pair of RCA for mic in. And I have Marantz SR5014 Receiver which already connects to speakers. I connect the Fifine K036 R+L out to the karaoke RCA mic in via 3.5mm to RCA, the HDMI to the projector, then the RCA (white, red) to the receiver, I can only hear the music from the karaoke system but no microphone sound.
Can you help me clarify what should I do to make the microphone work? I appreciate for your help!

FIFINE MICROPHONE

June 04, 2020

Hi Eric.
In most cases, the Karaoke has the microphone jack. It is not the RCA but the signal input jack. Therefore, there should be the 6.35mm microphone jack.
In order to solve the problem, there are two questions to get more detail info.
1. Have you ever tried to turn up the volume of the karaoke and K036 ?
2. Are there any microphone jacks on your karaoke? What is the model number?

I trying to connect a M-K036 to Panasonic TH-42PX75U and a Bose CineMate Series II Digital Home Theater Speaker System. I’ve followed the diagrams on your website but it’s still not working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

June 17, 2020

Hi Francis.
Thanks for your detail model number which helps solve the problem.
First off, let’s describe the connection between the K036, TV and the speaker system.
When you use TV, you need to check what kind of output TV has, RCA OUT or Optical OUT. For the former one, it’s just plug and play. As for the latter one, you still need an optical to RCA converter. As for the Panasonic TH-42PX75U, it has the Digital Audio Out, so you need to purchase the Digital to Analog Audio Converter.

When you connect the K036 with the speaker system, you need to use the 1/4’’ Stereo Plug to 2 RCA Cable. (1/4’’ connecter plugs into the K036, 2 RCA connectors plug into the speaker system. )

We tried using the Insignia Optical/Coax Digital-to-Analog Converter (NS-HZ313) to connect our Fifine M-K036 to our Samsung HW-T650 and could not get it to work. The Fifine cables were connected from the R+L Out and to the converter’s R and L Audio out. For the optical plugin, there was only one port for the sound bar and the converter. We confirmed power was getting to both and that the sound bar and Fifine equipment work. Also, we made sure the converter was switched to the optical setting.

Please help.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

June 29, 2020

Hi @Roque
Sorry for the late reply. The cable should be connected from the K036 R+L Out and to the converter’s R and L Audio In.

FIFINE MICROPHONE

August 20, 2020

Hi @Jimmy,
It will be better if you offer the TV and the sound bar model number, but we still can offer you the regular suggestion.
First you need to check what kind of output TV has, RCA OUT or Optical OUT. For the former one, you can take TV sound from it to 3.5mm IN jack of K036. As for the latter one, you still need an optical to RCA converter, to change optical signal to RCA signal first. As for the soundbar, it always needs the 3.5mm male to 6.35mm male Audio Cable. ( The 6.35mm pin plug into the K036, the 3.5mm pin plug into the soundbar)

FIFINE MICROPHONE

August 24, 2020

Hi Ruben, In most cases, the Epson projector has the RCA output jack, you can take the projector's sound from it to 3.5mm In jack of K036. As for the soundbar, it always needs the 3.5mm male to 6.35mm male Audio Cable. ( The 6.35mm pin plug into the K036, the 3.5mm pin plug into the soundbar) If the above suggestion doesn't help, plz send the model number of your Epson projector to webfifine.cc then our after-sales team will help you out.

I ordered these back in October and have used them about 4 times since. I recently tried to hook them up and only 1 mic is working. I see that the “A” and “B” are both lit up on the base station but I have no sound on the “A” mic. Really put a damper on my vacation as this was one of the highlights of the night with the karaoke. I tried to disconnect all cables and reconnect, power cycled, installed new batteries, etc…but nothing!
