    Default The Very New Guy

    Hello guys I am new to the forums , this is not a greeting, immin need of help. I was a former dj forum member but idk what happened to that site, but I have some equipment : 2 technic M3d's and recently got a djm 800, I don't know jack about the djm 800 , but I'm learning slowly. My question is what kind of speakers can you run through the djm 800 and where do i plug my turntables at? Yes very stupid questions but believe it or not I been searching through google and YouTube to find NOT even one video or tut or conversation about setting up a djm 800. Also I have some stereo speaker can I use those? I don't have a amp or PA , also, is there anyway I can play without a comp? I have vynils and stuff but immstill brand Spanking mew to this

    If you don't have and amp and you're just doing this at home or in the bedroom you could run it to a home stereo receiver and get some XLR to RCA adapters.

    Next you'll plug your TT's into channels 2, 3 or 4 where it says phono.

    i got the same mixer.
    to be able to have the sounds on PA you need another power amp. i use this

    Run the booth out to the inputs of this powered mixer, and the output to your PA system.

    Connect your turntables at the Phono input of your DJM800

    excuse me for being nosy,

    but for what reason should he get XLR -> RCA? Can it possible be better than RCA -> RCA. I know XLR -> XLR is a completely different thing and that way sure, its a better transportway.
    Why im asking is cuz i hook up my djm 800 with rca masters out to my hi fi stereo amp.
