USE ONLY DOMESTIC AC OUTLETS
Connecting the unit to an outlet supplying a higher voltage may create a fire hazard.
HANDLE THE POWER CORD WITH CARE
Do not disconnect the plug from the AC outlet by pulling the cord; always pull the plug itself.
Pulling the cord may damage it. If you do not intend to use your unit for any considerable
length of time, unplug the unit. Do not place furniture or other heavy objects on the cord, and
try to avoid dropping heavy objects on it. Do not tie a knot in the power cord. Not only could
the cord be damaged, but a short circuit could also be caused with a consequent fire hazard.
PLACE OF INSTALLATION
Avoid installing this product under the following conditions:
• Moist or humid places
• Places exposed to direct sunlight or close to heating equipment
• Extremely cold locations
• Places subject to excessive vibration or dust
• Poorly ventilated places
Do not expose this product to dripping or splashing. DO NOT PLACE OBJECTS FILLED WITH
LIQUIDS ON OR NEAR THIS PRODUCT!
MOVING THE UNIT
Before moving the unit, be sure to pull out the power cord from the AC outlet and disconnect
the interconnection cords with other units.
WARNING SIGNS
If you detect an abnormal smell or smoke, turn this product off immediately and unplug the
power cord. Contact your reseller or Vision.
PACKAGING
Save all packing material. It is essential for shipping in the event the unit ever needs repair.
IF ORIGINAL PACKAGING IS NOT USED TO RETURN THE UNIT TO THE SERVICE CENTRE,
DAMAGE IN TRANSIT WILL NOT BE COVERED BY WARRANTY.
WATTS
The most consistent standards for measuring watts are “Program Power” and “RMS” because
these measure average sustained levels.
Amplifier power output changes depending on how many loudspeakers are connected.
Professional manufacturers typically quote output based on 8 ohms. Less reputable
manufacturers quote at 4 ohms to make their product seem more powerful.
This amplifier has an output of:
2 x 25w (sometimes referred to as 50w) @ 8 ohms (two loudspeakers connected)
2 x 50w (sometimes referred to as 100w) @ 4 ohms (four loudspeakers connected)

INSTALLATION
1.
CONNECT INPUTS AND OUTPUTS Up to two pairs of loudspeakers can be connected. If
speaker cable provided is not long enough use unshielded speaker cable with gauge of
0.75mm or higher.
NOTE 1: The warranty will be void if you use shielded cable
NOTE 2: This is a low-impedance digital amplifier. Do not connect „100v line‟ speakers
(normally any speakers with “t” in their part code)
2.
CONNECT POWER The amplifier will turn on when power is plugged in the first time. The
mains power outlet is live regardless of the state of the amplifier.
3.
TURN POWER ON Then select input and adjust volume as required.
Should it become overloaded it will shut down to protect itself. Return operating conditions to
safe levels and restart amplifier.
MICROPHONE INPUT
1.
The microphone input provides “Phantom Power” (24v) for condenser microphones such as
lectern or boundary (PZM) microphones.
NOTE: Ensure the microphone volume is turned down when connecting microphones.
2.
The microphone volume can be adjusted independently of the line-level inputs.
3.
Keep microphone away from loudspeakers to avoid feedback.
