Your post is quite difficult to understand. You seem to be connecting via a DJ Tech RCA2 USB interface ie sound in via USB not via your mic. Your mic is picking up everything in the room and is not recording from the hifi.

I've never used the DJ Tech interface nor USB sound input but suggest that the instructions should have told you how to configure the sound input. When you right click on the speakers symbol in system tray and open recording devices is a USB input shown?

On your laptop, are you using Audacity software program to start/stop the recording? (If not, which program are you using?)

You have to choose the correct input device for it to capture the sound from. It is not the mic you want to record from, it is the DJ Tech RCA2 USB. Was there a manual or guide on the CD that came with it?

I'm not familiar with the usb recorder either. I do know , though, that to record sounds on your PC you need stereo mix in the sound properties. Right click the speaker icon in the notification area, select recording devices, right click in the box that opens, select "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices". Do you have stereo mix showing?
