Yet Another iRiver Post...

Having great success using iRivers for grooms and speakers (podiums); now I want to use one on the DJ. I know some folks here are doing this but I wasn't able to find a suggested setting. Who's doing this, and what level do you set the input? If groom / minister is 45 - 50, would line in from DJ be safe at 30?

thanks,
David

what do you mean by DJ ?

because basically, when you mean groom, i suppose you mean microphone recording.
For me a DJ (the guy who plays music from CD, most of time) , works with mixing table, that most of time can output to a line out cinch cable.
My Iriver as a selection for the input that can be used a LINE or MIC level.
In that case i would try to connect on the DJ equipement and use the line setting.
for the level, i am afraid you can only guess by testing on you own HIFI home equipement, since LINE OUT levels are supposed to be all the same (almost)

Yep. I just thought someone may have already done it. I'll experiment and report my findings.

Consumer outputs are normally -10dBu and pro outputs are +4dbu. Mixers may have outputs from different places (aux, monitor,ect.) that are -10dBu for some and +4dBu for others. Be prpared for both. It will depend on what he has available.
