Event Same Day Editing sound setup
on May 27, 2009 at 7:41:09 pm

Hello,
I hope that somebody can give me an advise. I need to do same day editing for the Wedding, but the only place where I can put a screen is about 70' away from the DJ. I don't have my own speaker, so I always use DJ's equipment running RCA from the DVD player audio out, but I heard that if I pass 20' with RCA cables, it would start picking up RF interference. Is it true? Is there another alternative to moving closer to the DJ board? I.e. wireless? Thanks!!!!

That's not always the case. You may not pick up RF or hum, but you COULD.

To diminish this, convert the UNbalanced RCA output to BALANCED using a transformer* at your end, and send it to the DJ's audio board over a balanced mic cable.

This is one, you'd need to adapt the RCA to the 1/4" phone plug for this unit.


Or, (better yet) send your RCA audio into a small active mixer** that has a balanced output.
Run that mixer's output to the DJ's audio board.
