Introduction
DaySequerra's new M4.2S AM-FM Digital Radio Receiver is the most capable next-generation HD
Radio™ platform available today.
With the M4.2S you can monitor audio and data from your analog and HD Radio broadcasts including
FM multicast channels HD-2 through HD-8. The M4.2S has no AUTO-Blend function so it stays locked
to the stream you've selected even if the broadcast or your AC power is interrupted. Hear your HD
Radio time-alignment using the M4.2S built-in Split-Mode. With the optional TimeLock™ Monitor, the
M4.2S will even send an email if your MPS and HD-1 streams are out of time-alignment. The Remote
Dashboard webserver simplifies your under 3-minute setup and provides total remote control of the
M4.2S using any browser on your Ethernet network. Plug and Play
Please read this manual thoroughly before operating your M4.2S.
