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

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.

Hi @Eliseo you can place the order of just the microphone here: https://fifine.cc/product/fifine-k036-wireless-transmitter/ please also include the info below when you check out.
The purchase date, the CH number and frequency number (which can be found at the bottom of battery case after you unscrew the battery cover) of the broken mic and the frequency label of the receiver (which can be found at the back of the receiver).

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.

do i need amplifier to play thru a speaker

FIFINE MICROPHONE

March 10, 2020

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.

The music stared playing and when I stared singing the voice came out with like 1 sec of delay

Please Help

FIFINE MICROPHONE

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.

April 28, 2020

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 @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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
Link: https://www.amazon.com/PROZOR-Digital-Converter-Optical-Toslink/dp/B00KNNSKV0/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Digital+optical+to+Analog+RCA+converter&qid=1585798862&sr=8-1
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

Hi @Roque
