Use FIFINE Karaoke Microphones System with Home Theater

Use FIFINE Karaoke Microphones System with Home Theater

There are basically two kind of home theater, one is true surround sound speakers connected through AV receiver, the other is soundbar. The following tutorial is based on that two different situation. 

True surround setup, specific to AV receiver with FIFINE K036, K040 system. Because FIFINE karaoke systems use analog stereo signal for in & out, including RCA, 3.5mm cable, etc. This kind of two-channel audio source will leave rear or ceiling speakers at no use. But if it is not a big issue for not having true surround sound experience, there are two methods to connect with AVR. The first one, we would call it "one-source" setup, will mess up your current wiring. Therefore, if your AVR is connected with Blue-ray player, PS4, Xbox and the like, you could look further below for the second method - "combination of video/audio input". 

One-source Method

First, instead of HDMI source, such as Roku, Apple TV inputs into AVR, you have to get it onto TV HDMI and disconnect the HDMI ARC (if you use this connection).   
Next, please identify the wiring connection point at the rear of your TV. 
  1. There is RCA OUT (composite OUT). Then the TV audio can go from here to the "R+L In" jack of K036.
  2. If only optical output, an optical to RCA converter and an extra RCA to 3.5mm cable are needed. TV optical jack-converter-"R+L In" jack of K036. Purchase converter: http://amzn.to/2H7BaZ9
At last, just deliver the mixed audio of mic and TV sound to RCA IN jacks at the back of AV receiver. And make sure you select corresponding RCA mode.

    Combination of video/audio input Method

    First, you could keep your current setup unchanged.
    Next, check up the audio out output connection of the source, such as Roku, Apple TV box or TV. If there is a RCA out, just take audio from this jack to K036 R+L in. If only optical jack is available, then an converter is needed before audio going into K036.  
    Then, but you need to look for the exact RCA jack at the back of AV receiver to input K036. The input jack varies with different AVRs, and thus the best way to find the correct input is to look for user manual. Below is the Yamaha AVR for reference. In this case, you would need to hook up K036 to AV 5, AV 6, AUDIO 1 or AUDIO 2 jack at Yamaha receiver.     
    At last, change the setting of AVR to have video input from HDMI while audio input from the analog jack (RCA where you connected K036).

    Note: If you are getting confused and cant follow the tutorial, please message us on our Facebook page or support email with your TV and AVR model number, we will give you the step by step instruction.   

    Soundbar setup, you just need to look for the input jacks that are available on your soundbar. 

    1.If there is RCA jack, then unplug the HDMI or optical connection with your TV. Next, look up for the second step at the "one source" method above to connect TV with K036. At last, send the mixer audio from K036 R+L OUT jack to soundbar RCA in. 
    2.If there is only optical or HDMI (not HDMI ARC), the same as above: unwire current setup and take reference of step 2 from "one source" method to hook up K036 and TV. At last, a analog to digital adapter is needed to connected K036 with soundbar optical input. 

    3.If there is optical and HDMI (specific HDMI ARC), unplug the HDMI ARC connection and use the optical connection. And the rest setup is the same as above.  

    If you have any problem or would like to suggest any other methods, feel free to contact us! Some illustrations are below. 

     

    Below is the illustrations of "one source" method:

    Hi Marc Batalon yes, it could be tricky to set the system up with home theatre. But you can definitely get the mixed sound you want. Could you contact us on https://www.facebook.com/FifineStore or email: webfifinemicrophone.com And please let us know that besides the model number of TV and Song AVR, is there any other device connected, such as Roku, Apple TV? And if you have bought the digital to analog convertor.

    Following the recommendation above. What is the input of my receiver and Do I have to disconnect HDMI ARC to make this work?

    Hi Alex.
    First off, please cut out the direct connection between the TV and the receiver.
    The right method is : LG 55SM8100AUA smart tv→K036→Yamaha Rx-v385 receiver.
    You need a Digital optical to Analog RCA converter, 2RCA Male to 3.5mm Male Audio Cable, to connect LG TV with the K036. Then connect the K036 and Yamaha Rx-v385 receiver, 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 receiver AUX port)

    Hi alen.
    The reason why YouTube app doesn’t work is that a device tranfers the signal to TV through the RCA port, so please cut out the connection of the RCA cable. Then you will be able to use the Youtube app.
    As for the connection about TV, K036 and receiver. Here is the suggestion below.
    First off, please cut out the connection you set up before.
    The right method is : QLED smart TV→K036→Yamaha receiver
    You need a Digital optical to Analog RCA converter, 2RCA Male to 3.5mm Male Audio Cable, to connect QLED smart TV with the K036. Then connect the K036 and Yamaha receiver, 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 receiver AUX port)

    Hi DJ,
    First off, please cut off the connection between TV and the soundbar, including the bluetooth and the wire connection.
    The connection is lg TV → K036 → lg soundbar
    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 @Teresa Perea an external speaker is necessary. Otherwise, there’s no way to have lyrics or background music on your TV.

    Hello, I have the following equipment:
    1. Sony Multi Channel AV Receiver: STR-DH810
    2. Sony LED TV
    3. K036
    4. Lenovo Mini PC with HDMI
    5. HDMI Splitter
    I have the PC connected to Splitter (IN) Going out is to Sony AV. TV is connected to Sony AV TV out. Everything works great but I can’t get the KO36 audio to work on the same channell HDMI1 with PC, Sony and TV which are all working together. I can YouTube Karaoke on my TV and Sound goes thru my Sony AV. I even bought an RCA to HDMI converter but still not working. However, it does work when I plug in the KO36 HDMI converter to another channel HDMI2 but of course now my PC and TV does not work on that channel because they are all connected to HDMI1. Am I missing a step or connection somewhere or did I purchase an old technology? Does FiFine have an HDMI version to work with Home Theater type setup as opposed to just plugging into a speaker with a built in amp? Thanks for your input.

    Hi @Noel Serrano what kind of HDMI splitter you use, can you send us the purchase link? Not sure what kind of HDMI splitter you refer to or any use of it. Since laptop should have their own HDMI jack, there’s no need for the splitter.

    In normal case, keep your setup unchanged. But the audio should go from laptop 3.5mm output jack to K036 in jack, K036 out ot RCA jack at the back of your Sony AVR. Then go to playback device setting on your laptop, choose built-in speaker as defualt out.

    You can message us at web@fifinemicrophone.com with the splitter info and your order number, we will give you the step by step instruction.

    Hi @Pravith K040 doesn’t have a input jack, so its receiver cannot be served as a mixer. And in you case where a mixer is necessary. Therefore you need one for the whole connection. TV (where PS4 or Apple TV connected to) and K040 to a mixer and out to a soudbar.

    Hello we recently purchased the K036. We were having a hard time setting it up and couldn’t connect the microphone to our smart tv and sound bar without losing the audio when we play music on youtube. The mics work fine but the audio comes out of the tv speaker and not the sound bar. Hope you could help me.

    Hi oliver,
    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)
