I need to connect a cassette tape recorder to the mixer. I am using the XLR output to the camcorder. Do I use the binding posts for the cassette tape recorder? If so, what are the proper cable connections?
If not, how do I connect, and what are those cables and connections?
Thank you very much.

So, it's an M267 mixer, I have a Marantz 201,
the XLR output from the mixer goes directly to the camcorder, so how do I connect in a cassette tape recorder?
Without knowing what mixer you are using, we don't know what connections are on it. Also, we are assuming you are taking the output of the mixer to the tape deck. Please click on the "Update Incident" link to tell us which mixer you are using.

If the M267 headphone output is already employed, the binding post may be used. Connect binding post #2 to the tip of the RCA connector; binding post #3 to the sleeve of the connector. However, be prepared to deal with possible hum problems due to ground loops. Operating the M267 from batteries will likely eliminate most ground loop problems.
If you find yourself with hum problems, please call Shure Applications Engineering at 800-516-2525. Ground loops can be sticky to solve.
