1. Remove the battery cover on the rear of your remote control by
applying pressure to the catch in the direction shown by the arrow in
the diagram, and then lifting the cover.
2. Insert 2 x AAA size batteries into the compartment. Make sure the (+)
and the (-) ends of the batteries are positioned as shown inside the
compartment.
3. Close the battery cover by inserting the retaining lugs first, then
apply pressure to the free end such that the catch latches the cover
securely.
4. If the remote is not to be used for an extended period of time it is
recommended that the batteries are removed.

Using the touch panel
Display icons
The MP-43 sound system has a stylish touch panel instead of conventional
buttons.
To operate the buttons simply touch the button area with the tip of a finger
for about half a second. The clock set and system menu functions marked
with a dot () are accessed by means of a long touch (2-3 seconds) on
the appropriate button until the display on the sound system shows that
the command has been accepted.
You may find that at first, the sound system does not always detect that you
have touched a button. If so, try touching with a little more pressure, or for
slightly longer. You will soon find the optimum touch needed to control your
sound system. (See also Touch Panel Sensitivity Control on page 44.)
The panel may be cleaned using a dry cloth. Do not use abrasives,
cleaning fluids or solvents.
Remote control functions
Most of the functions of the MP-43 sound system can be controlled using
either the touch panel or the remote control. However, there are a few
functions which are only accessible using the remote control. These
are:
DAB / FM radio station presets
DAB menu function
CD / iPod random track control
DAB / FM auto-tune
CD track access by numbers
Audio mute
As with the front panel, some operations require a longer operation of the
button (explained in the relevant sections). In this case simply keep your
finger held on the remote control button for 2-3 seconds until the display
on the sound system shows that the command has been accepted.

Using the sound system for the first time
Introduction
1. Place your sound system on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the telescopic aerial. The aerial should be fully extended
and positioned vertically for optimum reception.
3. Plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the back of your
sound system ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
4. Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch
on the wall socket.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting
the sound system to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the
sound system must remain accessible during normal use. In order to
disconnect the sound system from the mains completely, the mains
plug should be removed from the mains socket outlet completely.
5. When your sound system is first switched on the clock display will
show 12:00 and the unit will enter standby mode. It will then scan for
DAB radio stations and when stations have been found the clock and
date should be set automatically. Note that the display will not show
any scanning message for this first scan.
6. If no stations have been found then the clock will not set. You may need
to relocate your sound system to a position giving better reception.
You should then carry out an auto-tune to find DAB stations. See DAB
Operation on page 10 and also Finding New Stations on page 13. The
clock will then be set from a DAB broadcast.

To remove dust and dirt, breathe on the CD and wipe it with a soft, lint free
cloth in a straight line from the centre towards the edge.
Cleaning agents may damage the CD.
Do not expose the CD to rain, moisture, sand or to excessive heat. (e.g.
from heating equipment or in motor cars parked in the sun).
CD-R / CD-RW discs
Your MP-43 can playback CD-DA format audio CD-R/CD-RW discs that
have been finalised* upon completion of recording.
Your MP-43 may fail to play some CD-R/CD-RW discs due to poor recording
and wide variation in quality of the CD-R/CD-RW disc.
*Finalising enables a CD-R/CD-RW disc to playback on audio players such
as your MP-43. A disc which has not been finalised may have information
added to it using a computer but may not always be playable.

MP3 / WMA CD Mode
The MP-43 is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3 and
WMA files. It is assumed in this section that a file is equivalent to a CD
track.
An MP3 / WMA CD may not contain more than 511 files and not more than
99 folders. MP3 and WMA files should be created with an audio sample
rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal for files created from CD audio content).
MP3 and WMA data rates up to 320 kilobits per second are supported.
WMA Lossless files are not supported. The unit will not play files which
include digital rights management (DRM) protection.
When burning CD-R and CD-RW discs with audio files, various problems
may arise which could lead to problems with playback. Typically such
problems are caused by poor CD writing or audio encoding software, or
by the hardware settings of the PC's CD writer, or by the CD being used.
Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD
writer or software manufacturer or look in their product documentation
for relevant information. When you are making audio CDs, take care to
observe all legal guidelines and ensure that the copyright of third parties
is not infringed.
1. To select the CD mode press the Media button until "CD" shows on
the display, or insert a suitably prepared CD-R or CD-RW disc.
2. Insert a CD with printed side facing up into the CD slot. The disc will
be loaded automatically. The unit will check the CD type and load its
track list. The display will show "loading" and then "reading" as the
information is read.
If there are many files or folders on the CD then it may take some
tens of seconds to read all of the file and folder names and to identify
those which are playable (with .mp3 or .wma filename extension).

iPod Docking
iPod docking
Your MP-43 sound system has an iPod dock facility which allows you to
play digital audio files and video soundtracks held on your iPod directly.
The MP-43 uses the Universal Dock Connector developed for use with
iPods. Recent models of iPod are supplied with adaptor inserts which
ensure correct alignment of the iPod with the electrical connector. Earlier
models of iPod were not supplied with the necessary inserts, and so
your MP-43 is supplied with insert types 1 - 7. Should you require a
later insert to use your iPod with the MP-43, then please contact an iPod
accessories supplier.
