Thank you for purchasing this Portable iPod® Docking Station from
Emerson Research. This compact portable unit allows you to listen to
any dockable iPod® (available as of January 2006) through the built in
speakers, for those times when you want to share you music with others,
or when listening through your ear buds is simply not an option. We've
even provided an iPod® compatible USB connector to allow connection of
your iPod® Shuffle as well. And as long as your system is connected to an
AC outlet it will also charge the battery of any iPod® connected to the
docking station.
The powerful amplifier and heavy duty speakers in this system will deliver
sound quality that you would never expect from such a compact unit. There’s
also a built in digital tuner with 20 preset station memories, a digital clock
that allows you to fall asleep to the radio or your iPod® and a full function
remote control.
The system can be operated on 8 “C” batteries or normal 120V AC house
current. And we’ve even included an auxiliary input jack so you can also
connect other MP3 players, personal CD players, or any other external
device that has a headphone jack.
We have taken great care to insure that your system was in perfect working
order when it left our factory. If you experience any problems with the set
up or operation of this system, please do not return it to the retail store.
Please call the Emerson Customer Service hotline, toll free, at:
1-800-898-9020, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 AM
and 5:00 PM Central Time. One of our representatives will try to resolve
the problem for you. If the problem cannot be resolved by phone you will
be advised how to obtain service or a replacement unit.
Once again, thank you for purchasing this portable iPod® docking station
from Emerson Research.

digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.

PREPARATION FOR USE
Unpacking and Set-up
• This carton contains the main unit, 5 plastic adapters to insure that all dockable
iPod® s fit securely in the docking station, and the remote control. Confirm that
you have all of these items and make sure that nothing is accidentally discarded
with the packing materials.
• We recommend that, if possible, you save the carton and packing materials in
the event that your unit ever needs to be returned for service. Using the original
carton and packing materials is the only way to protect your unit from damage
during shipment.
• Remove the paper “dummy iPod® ” from the docking area and discard it. That
is for store display purpose only.
To remove the “dummy iPod® ”, slide the docking cradle upward to remove it
from the front panel. Turn the cradle over and push the docking connector
cover out of the cradle as shown in the following illustration, and then remove
the “dummy iPod® ”.

Power Sources
This system is designed to operate on 8 “C” batteries, not included, or on normal
120V 60Hz AC house current. Attempting to operate this system on any other
power source may cause damage to the unit, and such damage is not covered by
your warranty.
AC Operation
Insert the small female plug of the AC power cord into the AC socket on the back
panel. The plug can only be inserted one way.
Insert the AC plug into your normal 120V 60Hz AC household outlet.
The display will show “AM 12:00”. The
display backlighting will turn on for a few
seconds and then turn off again.
NOTE: The system has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one
narrow blade. The plug will only fit into matching polarized AC outlets.
This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility
of electric shock. If the plug will not fit in your
AC outlet, you probably have an outdated nonpolarized outlet. You should have your outdated
outlet changed by a qualified, licensed
electrician. Do not file the wide blade on the
plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit
into your outlet. This defeats the safety feature

and could expose you to electric shock.

Installing The Batteries
The battery compartment is located on the bottom cabinet. We recommend that
you place the unit on a soft surface such as a carpet, on a towel or blanket before
turning the unit upside down to install the batteries. This will prevent any scratches
on the cabinet finish.
1.) With the unit upside down press the two battery cover locking tabs in the direction
of the arrow marks and remove the battery compartment cover.
2.) Insert 8 “C” batteries, not included, in the battery compartment according to
the polarity markings engraved in the compartment. If the batteries are inserted
incorrectly the unit will not work.
NOTE: We recommend that you use a well-known brand of alkaline
batteries for longest life and best performance.
3.) Replace the battery compartment and make sure that it locks securely in place.
IMPORTANT: In order to operate the unit on batteries the AC power cord
must be disconnected from the AC socket on the back cabinet.

Battery Precautions
• Replacement of batteries must be done by an adult.
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium)
batteries.
• The supply terminals are not to be short-circuited.
• Non-rechargeable batteries are not to be recharged.
• Exhausted batteries are to be removed.
• Only batteries of the equivalent type are to be used.
• Batteries are to be inserted with the correct polarity.
• Dispose of batteries properly. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. The batteries
may explode or leak.
Protect Your Furniture
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber ‘feet’ to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These ‘feet’are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber ‘feet’ to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber ‘feet’before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

Remote Control
The remote control supplied with this system allows you to operate all of the features
and functions found on the main unit control panel. The remote control receiver is
located behind the left speaker grill. The effective operating distance of the remote
control is approximately 15 feet.
Please note that bright sunlight can interfere with the proper operation of the remote
control, so the operating range may be reduced when the unit is used outdoors on
a sunny day.
IMPORTANT! Please note that the iPod ® Shuffle has no interface to accept
commands from a remote control. The remote control of this system will not
operate an iPod ® Shuffle. You must use the controls on the Shuffle itself to
operate an iPod® Shuffle.
Remote Control Battery
The remote control requires one 3V lithium button battery, Type CR2025 or
equivalent, included.
To preserve the life of the battery a small clear plastic spacer tab is installed between
the battery and the battery terminal. This tab must be removed before the remote
control can be used.
To remove the tab simply pull it out of the battery
compartment, as shown, and discard it.
12
iP550_041907.p65
12
19/4/2007, 17:56
When the operation of the remote becomes intermittent or fails completely you
should replace the battery as soon as possible.
The battery number is CR2025 or equivalent.
To replace the battery, put the remote control face down, slide the battery holder
out of the remote control as shown in the illustration.
Remove the original battery from the holder and install a new CR2025 battery with
the “+” side facing up. Then slide the battery holder back into the remote control.
CAUTION
DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED.
REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE.
