    Question AT 2020 Connection Issues w/ Behringer to PC

    Recently bought an AT 2020 on Amazon, along with a Behringer preamp for a new setup. I did all the usual assembly and wiring and noticed the PC sees my devices, but for some reason is not detecting it as a mic. Wondering how to troubleshoot this issue. I can hear in my AT headset that the mic is...

    Solved! AVR > Rowland Research Pre-Amp > Rowland Research Amplifier. Correct wiring

    I'm trying to do a bit of research for family friend. He has a Rowland Research Coherence One Preamplifier, and a Rowland Research Model 5 Power Amplifier. As these are older (but god-tier) components, the pre can't do anything modern, Dolby etc etc. What would like to do, is use a decent...

    Microphone help (Fuzzy)

    I have a cisno BM-800, it's a condenser microphone with a 2.5mm output. It's really quite so I have to boost it really high and it ends up being really fuzzy. My friend says I need an external sound card. Should I get a preamp, sound card or what? Any suggestion would help.

    AT2020 XLR connecting to PC help

    Ok, so I recently purchased an Audio Technica AT2020 condenser mic, with the XLR cable, and I bought a second hand Art USB Dual Pre, which I believe is broken.

    Preamp connections on my reciever

    I have a Denon AVR-786, and I did not buy it new so please be patient with me. I see where my powered subwoofer hooks up on the back, but I am just wondering if the rest of the hook ups there in the same general area are also pre amp connections.

    Pre amp / Power amp - how?!

    I have a Thule Audio IA 100 couple with a pair of Dynaudio 52's, I'd like to add a power amp in the mix, but I have no idea how to do this, if it's even possible and if it is how to connect the two? The Thule IA 100 has a switch on the back that says NORMAL and MAIN IN - normal is how it is now...

Sound output from front right channel is much lower than the rest of channels (~16 db). I think these two issues are connected. My findings till...
