What is RCA?
RCA is a type of coax connector used for attaching audio and video devices, such as stereo equipment or a composite video monitor, to a computer's video adapter. The RCA coax cable provides economical, plug-in coaxial connections for audio and component video applications.

Connecting your PC to an Audio Source: RCA Cables
Most DJ mixers, CD-players and MD-players use dual RCA/phono connectors for output. RCA/phono connectors are those red & white (or red & black) plugs used with most home audio equpment. You will most probably need a cable with two RCA plugs in one end. What you will need in the other end depends on your PC/soundcard. If you have RCA connectors on your PC's line in (as found on some more epxensive sound cards like the Game Theatre XP, Sound Blaster, etc.), you will need a cable with RCA plugs in both ends. If you have mini-jack input on your PC (maybe the most common one, at least on built-in soundcards), you will need a cable with a mini-jack plug in the other end. Both cables are shown below.

Mini-jack to RCA cable

Identifying what type of cable you need is rather simple. It's just a matter of looking at the connectors on your mixer/CD -player/MD-player/whatever, and look at the connectors on your PC. Pictures of the various connectors (RCA and mini-jack) are shown below.

The red & white connectors to the left, labeled main/front, are RCA connectors. The little one above them is a mini-jack connector.

Connecting To A Mixer
Most (DJ) mixers have two outputs for the main mix. These are usually labeled line out/master out and rec out. They both send the same signal, but there are two important differences between them. The rec out is not affected by the master volume, while the line out/master out is. The master out/line out might also have a higher output volume than rec out. This varies between mixers though, so the fact that rec out is independent of master volume is the most important difference. This is useful when doing recordings, since you can control your listening/monitoring volume without affecting the recording.

Even though rec out is meant for recording, that doesn't mean line out or master out won't work just as well. However, when using line out or master out for recording, you must be careful not to change your master volume during the mix, as these volume changes will also be recorded.

The Vestax PCV-175 mixer has both line out and rec out outputs.

Connecting to a PC
You should connect to the line in input on your PC for recording. This will usually be a set of RCA connectors or a mini-jack labeled line in. On newer soundcards (with mini-jack connector) this input is usually color coded in black.

Using the microphone input (color coded red) is not recommended. This input is made for a signal with much lower volume than what mixers and other audio equipment will output. Also the microphone input is only mono, so it will probably not work very well.
