How does Rocketboost™ work?
Rocketboost technology can connect all audio devices throughout
your home to form a home audio network.
Rocketboost products include “wireless senders,” which send or
transmit audio streams, and “wireless receivers,” which receive the
audio. This lets you listen to music from your wireless sender in other
rooms using your wireless receiver.
Rocketboost is expandable. Each Rocketboost wireless receiver can
select the audio from any wireless sender in your Rocketboost audio
network. The following shows an example Rocketboost network. You
can set up your network to meet your specific needs.

Setting up your wireless kit
Rocketboost products include “wireless senders,” which send audio
streams, and “wireless receivers,” which receive the audio. This lets
you listen to music from your wireless sender through the speakers
connected to your wireless receiver.
The Wireless HD sender and wireless receiver can be installed in
different configurations, depending on your need. For example, you
can use the Wireless HD Audio Starter Kit for wireless home theater
surround sound. Or you can listen to the audio source from one room
in other rooms throughout your house.
Rocketboost is expandable, so you can add additional wireless
senders and wireless receivers to your network to meet your specific
needs.
The next three sections, Wireless Surround Sound for 5.1-Channel
home theater, Wireless Surround Sound for 7.1-channel home theater,
and Listening to music throughout your home, provide three different
examples of how to configure your Wireless HD Starter Kit. Choose
the section that most closely describes the setup you want.

Optimizing your surround sound
Wireless links create a short latency between the wireless sender and
wireless receiver. Many home theater receivers let you adjust the
delay between the various speakers in your surround system.
To optimize your system, we suggest that you subtract about 15 ms
from the delay to the surround speakers. This will perfectly match
your surround system.
Wireless Surround Sound for 7.1-channel home theater
This example shows how to wirelessly connect your rear and side
surround sound home theater speakers (7.1 home theater). The
amplifier surround sound speaker outputs are connected to the
wireless sender. The rear and side surround sound speakers are
connected to two wireless receivers. For this setup a Rocketboost

Configuring 4-channel lock
4-Channel Lock is a special feature used for 4-channel wireless
surround sound applications (for example if you are using
Rocketboost for wireless rear and side surround sound in a 7.1 home
theater system).
The 4-Channel Lock switch is on the back of the wireless sender. When
the switch is set to ENABLE, the volume level from both INPUT A and B
on the wireless sender will be synchronized, allowing 7.1 systems to
optimize speaker volume levels.
Set the 4-Channel Lock switch to DISABLE to allow separate control of the
volume levels for Inputs A and B.
To configure 4-channel lock for wireless rear and side surround sound (7.1 home
theater):
1 Turn on your home theater system and play a source or test tones so you
can hear audio from the rear and side surround speakers. Press the
SOURCE button on each wireless receiver until you hear the surround
sound audio for those channels. Note that when you press the SOURCE
button, the wireless sender that is transmitting briefly flashes it's source
indicator so you can see which source is being received at the wireless
receiver.
2 When both wireless receivers are receiving the correct surround sound
source, do the following:
• Turn off the wireless sender.
• Switch the 4-Channel Lock switch to ENABLE.
• Turn on the wireless sender.
After doing so your system (wireless sender and two wireless receivers)
will be in 4-channel lock mode).
Notes:
When your wireless sender and two wireless receivers are in 4-Channel Lock mode,
other wireless receivers in your Rocketboost network cannot select the 4 channels
from the wireless sender. This is by design, as most people would not want to listen to
surround sound audio sources in other rooms besides the home theater.
24
RF-RBKIT_10-1329_MAN_V5.fm Page 25 Friday, November 4, 2011 12:06 PM
If you try to select a 4-channel lock mode source, depending on your system the
following happens:
1) If there are no other wireless senders in the network, the power indicator on the
wireless receiver flashes five times to show that four-channel lock is active on the
wireless sender.
2) If there are other wireless senders active in the network, the source button toggles
through all other sources except the wireless sender with 4-channel lock enabled. In
this case, if you want to listen to one of the sources with 4-channel lock enabled, you
should disable 4-channel lock.
Optimizing your surround sound
Wireless links create a short latency between the wireless sender and
wireless receiver. Many home theater receivers let you adjust the
delay between the various speakers in your surround system.
To optimize your system, we suggest that you subtract about 15 ms
from the delay to the surround speakers. This will perfectly match
your surround system.

Establishing communication
Rocketboost products form an audio network and each Rocketboost
wireless receiver can select the audio from any Rocketboost wireless
sender in the network.
Important
Every Rocketboost network must contain one hub device, which
helps devices join the network. The network can have only one hub,
which you can enable using the hub switch on the back of all
Rocketboost wireless senders and wireless sender/receivers.
If this is your first Rocketboost product, you should make the wireless
sender the hub, if you already have Rocketboost products, you
should disable hub mode on this device.
Important: Hub devices must always have power for your network to operate. The hub
device can be in standby (power saving) mode, but must stay plugged in.
Is this your first Rocketboost product?
YES - If this is your first Rocketboost enabled product, you can skip this
section because your wireless sender and wireless receiver were
previously paired or connected at the factory. To learn how to use
your wireless sender and wireless receiver, see “Listening to music
and using your wireless sender and wireless receiver” on page 35.
Note: If you do need to rejoin the wireless sender and wireless receiver, see “Pairing the
wireless sender with the wireless receiver” below.
NO - If this is not your first Rocketboost enabled product, proceed to
“Pairing the wireless sender and wireless receiver with an existing
Rocketboost network” on page 34.

Rocketboost Network Capabilities
The maximum number of Rocketboost devices in a Rocketboost
Network is 9. If you already have 9 devices and attempt to pair
another one, then pairing will fail for the new device.
Note: If you want to remove a device from your Rocketboost network you need to
rejoin it to a different hub device (this basically creates a 2nd Rocketboost network).
The maximum number of audio streams that can be sent
simultaneously on the Rocketboost network is:
•
•
•
•
5 stereo CD quality -or1 stereo HD quality + 3 CD quality -or2 stereo HD quality + 2 stereo CD quality -or3 stereo HD quality
Note: HD streams are available if using the wireless sender. If your system is in a
maximum audio stream state, then the TX indicator will not light on the wireless
sender devices that have exceeded the maximum. To use those device's audio
streams, you need to turn off one of your other wireless senders.
Maintaining your system
Use a soft cloth dampened with a weak solution of mild detergent
and water. Dry the device immediately afterwards with a clean cloth.
Do not use abrasive cloth, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical
solvents, because they may damage the finish or remove the panel
lettering.
Cautions:
Do not block the ventilation openings.
If the power cord is damaged, it must be repaired by a qualified technician.
