Q: I have recently purchased a new Xone mixer. My father has an audio-frequency induction loop hearing amplifier installed downstairs in the sitting room because he is hard of hearing.
My problem is that the Xone is able to pick up the feed from this device and play it through my speakers.
I have tested my equipment on a sub £100 mixer and it doesn't pick up the feed. How and why is this possible on a product of this price? What can I do about this?
A: Where is the Xone picking up the induction loop signals - in its channel inputs?
If these channels are open, i.e. if the gain is turned up and the channel faders are up, are the inputs switched to RIAA, not Line IN?
Phono shorting plugs are supplied with Xone Series mixers and should be connected to any RIAA inputs that are not connected to (and thus correctly terminated by) turntables.
Check these plugs are used, and correctly fitted.
If you have lost your RCA phono shorting plugs, spares can be ordered from your dealer or local A&H distributor
