8. Cleaning
Unplug the unit from the mains supply before cleaning.
The case should normally only require a wipe with a soft,
damp, lint-free cloth. Do not use paint thinners or other
chemical solvents for cleaning.
We do not advise the use of furniture cleaning sprays or
polishes as they can cause indelible white marks if the unit
is subsequently wiped with a damp cloth.
9. Power sources
Only connect the appliance to a power supply of the type
described in the operating instructions or as marked on the
appliance.
10. Power-cord protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not
likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon
or against them, paying particular attention to cords and
plugs, and the point where they exit from the appliance.
11. Grounding
Ensure that the grounding means of the appliance is not
defeated.
12. Power lines
Locate any outdoor antenna/aerial away from power lines.
13. Non-use periods
If the unit has a standby function, a small amount of
current will continue to flow into the equipment in this
mode. Unplug the power cord of the appliance from the
outlet if left unused for a long period of time.
14. Abnormal smell
If an abnormal smell or smoke is detected from the
appliance, turn the power off immediately and unplug the
unit from the wall outlet. Contact your dealer immediately.
15. Servicing
You should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in this handbook. All other servicing should be
referred to qualified service personnel.
16. Damage requiring service
The appliance should be serviced by qualified service
personnel when:
A. the power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged,
or
B. objects have fallen, or liquid has spilled into the
appliance, or
C. the appliance has been exposed to rain, or
D. the appliance does not appear to operate normally or
exhibits a marked change in performance, or
E.
the appliance has been dropped or the enclosure
damaged.
Safety compliance
This product has been designed to meet the IEC 60065
international electrical safety standard.
This handbook has been designed to give you all the
information you need to install, connect, set up and use
the Arcam CD192 compact disc player. The CR-314 remote
control handset supplied with this equipment is also
described.

Digital to Analogue conversion
Remote-control codes .........................................E-7
The CD192 incorporates the latest audio up-sampling
technology to convert the 44.1kHz data from the CD up
to 192kHz in 24-bit precision using the Analog Devices
AD1896 sample rate converter.
Technical specification .........................................E-8
The 192kHz audio data is converted into the analogue
domain using four Wolfson Micro WM8740 24-bit stereo
DACs. Left and right output channels are made using
two stereo DAC chips per channel, both operating in dual
mono configuration per channel. The resulting four mono
signals (two for each channel) are summed together to help
improve dynamic range, linearity and therefore distortion.

Due to the higher sample rates, the digital filters roll off
less aggressively than for standard DACs, and the analogue
filters have a wider bandwidth resulting in less phase
distortion, particularly for the higher frequencies.

Positioning the unit
Always place the CD player on a level, firm surface. Placing your player on a set of dedicated
sorbothane isolation feet will isolate the unit from its surroundings as well as absorbing the vibrations
created within the player itself. You will generally hear some sonic improvements, which makes this an
extremely cost-effective upgrade.
Connecting to other equipment
Interconnect cables
Interconnecting cables are not supplied with this CD player. We recommend high quality cables as
inferior quality cables will degrade the sound quality of your system. Please contact your Arcam dealer
for details of suitable cables.
Audio outputs
3
Connect these to your amplifier’s CD or any other line-level input using suitable high quality
interconnect cables. Ensure that the left and right audio outputs from the CD player are connected to
the same left and right inputs on your amplifier.
The second set of sockets can be used to connect to a second amplifier set up for multi-room use.
Coaxial digital output
4
Use this socket if you are using a separate digital to analogue converter (DAC) or digital recorder.
Connect to the DAC or recorder’s digital input using a suitable 75Ω screened cable.
CAUTION: Never connect the digital output socket to a conventional audio input.
Optical digital output
5
Use this socket if you are using a separate DAC or digital recorder with an optical connection. Connect
using a suitable optical cable.
Remote IR input
6 and 12V Trigger input 7
These connections are for use in multi-room installations. In normal use there is no need to make any
connections to these sockets.
Connecting to a power supply
Wrong plug?
Check that the plug supplied with the unit fits your supply and that your mains supply voltage agrees
with the voltage setting (120V/230V)
indicated on the rear panel of the unit.
2
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different, consult your Arcam dealer.
Mains lead
The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug already fitted to the lead. If for any
reason the plug needs to be removed, it must be disposed of immediately and securely, as it is a
potential shock hazard when inserted into the mains socket. Should you require a new mains lead,
contact your Arcam dealer.
Plugging in
Push the plug (IEC line socket) of the power cable supplied with the unit into the socket
POWER INLET) in the back of the unit. Make sure it is pushed in firmly.

Continual improvement policy
Arcam has a policy of continual improvement for its products. This means that designs and
specifications are subject to change without notice.
Radio interference
The CD192 player is a digital audio device which has been designed to very high standards of
electromagnetic compatibility.
Both CD players and DACs generate, and can radiate RF (radio frequency) energy. In some cases this
can cause interference with FM and AM radio reception. If this is the case, keep the CD player and its
connecting cables as far from the tuner and its aerials as possible. Connecting the CD player and the
tuner to different mains sockets can also help to reduce interference.
EC COUNTRIES – These products have been designed to comply with directive 89/336/EEC.
USA – These products comply with FCC requirements.
Laser radiation
If an Arcam CD player is operated whilst the outer casing is removed, invisible laser radiation could
cause eye damage.
