Got the E-MU, but...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Man, I didn't know it'd be so quick thinking it came all the way from USA to HK, half the circumfrence of the globe...

But then I figured that there where <B> two (Left + Right) 1/4" outputs </B>. None of my speakers or headphones' plugs will work, they're 1/8" mini and red/white RCA males. I've got one adapter for the HD497 that's 1/4" to 1/8" (dunno if i got it right, but it has a 1/4" end plug and a 1/8" hole, hope this clears things up), but I dunno which line out (left or right) I should use to plug my speakers/headphones into, since one is two RCA's and another is one 1/8" plug. In the box I found a 1/4 to two 1/4's Y cable, but I find this cable not making much sense, totally useless for me.

I know there's posts on this issue before, but I don't understand their babble. Same as the other head-fi'ers, when I plugged my speakers (with an red/white RCA to one 1/8" and then -> one 1/8" to 1/4" -> to either Left or Right Line Out on the E-MU daughter card), only one speaker has sound or the bass is totally missing (I use satellite speakers with subwoofer). I've read the manual but I don't know what the heck's a TS or TRS cable, and I cant understand the terms in cables of mono, stereo, balanced, phono.....n' whatever....damn I'm stupid ><".....

Both 1/4" jacks on the card are mono. Your 1/4 and 1/8 plugs for your standard consumer equipment are all stereo. The easiest thing for you to do is buy two rca to 1/4 TS convertors and slap them on one end of your rca cables.

As someone pointed out in another thread, you need two of these,
or something like it.

Also, Headphile makes some dual 1/4" to RCA connector cables that work quite well (that is what I am using).

Sorry I didn't update this thread, but actually I asked Iron_dreamer about this already. Since I don't have an amp, I'll also need to buy an adapter that accepts one stereo 1/8" and fits two mono 1/8"'s.

Will do!
