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.

CAUTION: This Compact Disc Player employs
a Class 1 LASER system. To ensure proper use
of this product, please read this user’s guide
carefully and retain for future reference. Should
the unit require maintenance, contact a Boston
Acoustics authorized service center.
Use of controls, adjustments or the performance

Optional: Connecting to a cable TV signal
You may be able to obtain better reception if
your cable company offers an FM radio signal
on your TV cable. The Trio XT’s FM antenna
connector will accept the cable FM feed
from most cable TV systems that provide FM
programming. To connect your radio to the FM
signal available from some cable TV providers,
contact your cable TV company for assistance
before making any connection.
Be sure that the installation includes a splitter
that filters the signal to prevent any remission of
the TV spectrum through the Trio XT, so only the
FM band, not the cable TV signal, is transmitted
to the Trio XT.
Notice for Cable TV System Installer
Please make note of Article 820-40 of the NEC
(of USA) that provides guidelines for proper
grounding. In particular, this standard specifies
that the cable ground shall be connected to the
grounding system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as is practical. CAUTION:
When making connections to the rear of the
Trio XT, it is possible to experience an ESD
(Electrostatic Discharge) event. If this happens,
simply push the On/off button on the front and
recheck the preset settings.
Optional: Connecting to an outdoor antenna
If you wish to use an outdoor antenna, we
suggest that, for safety reasons, you have a
professional installer connect it.

Unpacking and Setting Up Your Horizon Trio XT
Carefully unpack the Horizon Trio XT. If there is any sign of damage from transit, report it immediately to your dealer and/
or delivery service. Keep the shipping carton and packing materials for future use. Be sure to keep your purchase receipt
in a safe place, as it may be required for warranty purposes.
In the box you should find the Horizon Trio XT, the remote control and the power cord.
Placement
Your Horizon Trio XT will sound great just about anywhere.
But if you put it near a wall or corner the bass response will be
enhanced. Don’t block the bass port. Be sure the vents on the
top of the cabinet are unobstructed to allow for ventilation.
Power Connection
Connect the power cord to the back of the Horizon Trio XT and
plug it into the wall power outlet.
DAB/FM Antenna
iPod Dock Input
Aux 2 Input
Line Output
DAB and FM Antenna
The Horizon Trio XT comes out of the box ready to use. Please
fully extend the rear-mounted DAB antenna. Just extend the
wire connected to the plug. With the standard antennas you’ll
probably pull in more stations than any other radio you own.
But if you want to listen to stations that are very far away then
external antenna can be connected to the antenna input.
DAB/FM
AC Input
Note: Boston Acoustics has found that in situations where the
supplied antenna is not used with the product, strong signals
can interfere with normal performance.

About the Front Panel Controls
Most of the Horizon Trio XT functions are operated by the three controls
on the front panel.
Power/Volume – Is controlled by the large knob in the center of the
panel.
Mode – Selects the input you want to use or the function you want to
adjust.
Tune – Controls tuning the radio, changing CD tracks and various other
functions depending on the operating mode.
These logical, intuitive controls make it easy to operate the Horizon Trio
XT. The way you use each control is the same for each feature. Once you
learn how to control one of the features the rest of them will be easy. You may not need to refer to this manual once you
understand the way the controls work.
About the Remote Control
Most of the features of the Horizon Trio XT can be operated with the supplied remote control.
When it’s not being used, the remote control can be conveniently stored in the recess on top
of the Horizon Trio XT. The remote also has a magnetic backing so it can be attached to many
metal surfaces.
Note: When you unpack your remote control there will be a plastic insulation tab extending
from the battery compartment. Pull out this tab before using the remote control.
There must be an unobstructed line of sight to the front of the Horizon Trio XT when using
the remote control. Point the remote control at the front panel of the Horizon Trio XT when
pressing the buttons. For best results you should be within 20 feet of the unit and no more than 45° off axis.
Note: Eventually you’ll need to replace the remote battery. If the remote doesn’t reliably operate the Trio XT, put in a new
CR2025 3V lithium coin type battery.
Basic Control Operations
Turning the Horizon Trio XT On or Off
Press the Power/Volume control on the center of the
front panel or the green XXbutton on the remote
control.
Adjusting the Volume
Turn the front panel Power/Volume knob or press the
Volume Up XXX or Volume Down XXX buttons on the
remote control.
Note: On the control illustrations –
Regular arrows indicate to press and release the button or control.
Double headed arrows indicate to press and hold the button or control.
This symbol indicates the control is turned then pressed.

Alarm Clock Features
The Horizon Trio XT has two independent alarm settings. Each can have its own type of alarm­—wake to tone, wake to
music or both. Both types of alarms start at a low volume level that gently increases. In addition you can set the alarms to
work every day, weekdays only or weekends only.
Setting the Alarm Time
1 Press and hold the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button for one second to access the “Alarm1 Setup”
or “Alarm2 Setup” menu.
2 Turn the MODE control to highlight “Alarm Time”, then press the control to select it. The
time highlight box will flash.
Turn
the Mode or Tune control to adjust the Alarm Time, then press the control to set the
3
Alarm Time.
Notes: The Alarm Setup menu can also be by accessed using the mode control to select the
Setup Options menu then selecting Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 .
If an alarm source other than the CD player is selected, the CD Track # line of the display will show NA rather than a
track number.
The other setting are adjusted the same way: access the “Alarm Setup” menu; turn the mode control to select the item to
adjust, then press the control; turn the mode or tune to adjust the setting, then press the control.
Active Days: Weekdays/Weekends/7Days – Choose which days you want to use the alarm.
Source – Choose the wake to music source you want. You can select a station you have tuned in with the DAB or FM
sources, any of the DAB or FM presets, a CD, or your iPod connected via the HRD-i docking adapter.
Note: If you select a source that is not available, for example if you select a CD source and there is no disc loaded, a wake
to tone alarms sound instead.
CD Track# – If you select a CD for the wake to music source, use this setting to select the track to play.
Volume – Set the volume for wake to music.
After you have completed the alarm setup turn the Mode or Tune control to highlight “Exit” (below Volume) and press the
control. Or just wait a few seconds and the menu will “time out” and store the settings.
Turning Alarms On or Off
Press the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 buttons to turn the alarm on or off and set the alarm type. One
press selects wake to music XXX. A second press selects wake to tone XX. A third press selects
both. Press the button a fourth time to cancel the alarm. When an alarm is turned on you’ll
see one or both alarm indicators in the lower corners of the display showing the alarm time
and type.
This example shows the display with the Trio XT turned off and both alarm on. The current time is displayed. Alarm 1 is set
for wake to tone at 6:45 AM. Alarm 2 is set for wake to music and tone at 7:15 AM.

increases the length of the Snooze alarm delay by 5 minutes. The maximum
delay is 60 minutes. The display initially shows the amount of “snooze time”,
then reverts to normal time display. The highlight box of the alarm that is
“snoozing” flashes.

4 Turn the Mode or Tune control clockwise to set the amount of time delay you want. You
can select from 5 to 90 minutes in 5 minute increments. Press the control.
The display example to the right shows the Sleep delay set for 20 minutes.
5 Turn the Mode control to highlight “Exit” and press the control. Or wait a few seconds and
the display will “time out” automatically.

Connecting Other Equipment
Connecting Headphones
Connect the headphone plug to the jack beside the symbol. This turns off the Trio XT internal speakers. If your
headphones have a 1/4-inch plug you will need an adapter.
Using Aux Inputs
Other audio equipment, such as a portable CD player, can be connected to the Trio XT through the Aux inputs. The
Aux 1 input on the front panel has an 1/8-inch jack. The Aux 2 input on the rear panel uses two RCA jacks. The right and
left channel jacks are color coded red and white respectively. Select the Aux 1 or Aux 2 input using the Mode control as
described in the “Selecting a Source” section of this manual.
About Clock Memory
When power to the Trio XT is interrupted a special power component called a “super-cap” will keep the clock functions
active for a period of 24-48 hours. If the Trio XT is without power for a longer period of time you may need to reset the
clock when power is restored.
Security Cable Connection
There is a security cable connection point on the rear of the Trio XT. This is the same as the connection point found
on most laptop computers. Connect a computer security cable between the Trio XT and a solid anchor point to help
prevent theft of your Trio XT.
Service Port
The Service port on the rear panel is for use only qualified service technician.
Maintenance and Service
The Trio XT enclosure may be cleaned using a soft cloth to remove fingerprints or to wipe off dust. All wiring connections
should be inspected and remade at least once a year.
