Operational guidance
e20 utilizes the advanced CapSense® touch sense technology transforming all user adjustments
into just a few simple movements of your fingers to control and operate the audio system.
1. STBY /on: When the system is connected to the AC wall outlet, the key marked ‘input’ in the middle of the touch sense
panel will start to glow and then will slowly change color indicating that the system is in standby mode. Touching or swiping
the control panel with you finger will switch the system from standby mode to ‘on’.’ The key marked ‘input’ will no longer
change color but will glow a steady green, blue or red depending on the last selected input prior to being switched off.
The red LED speaker grill light will be illuminated and the keys marked ‘+’ and ‘-‘ will also be lit.
Touching the key marked ‘input’ will change the input sequence from ‘Optical audio input’ (key color red) to ‘Auxiliary audio
input’ (key color green) to ‘USB streamed audio input’ (key color blue). To re-enter standby mode place the palm of your
hand on the touch sense panel touching the ‘input’ the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ keys and hold it there for approximately 3 seconds.

or ‘next’ track in the user selected playlist. With the system connected and playing audio from a media player playlist
swiping a finger from left to right over the touch sense panel will advance the media player to the next track in the user
selected playlist (add here the images of finger movements). Swiping a finger from right to left over the touch sense panel

One speaker does not function when playing CD from computer
This kind of phenomena is prone to happen with new computer system where one speaker does not function when playing
CD yet the system works fine when playing WAV formatted files and computer games. This is mainly due to the fault
connection of CD-ROM and sound card. Please refer to the manual of CD-ROM and sound card to adjust the connections.

players or that RF noise transmitted from sound cards is high. Keep the system in active mode and remove the audio
source. If no sound can be heard at 1 meter away from the system, then there is no problem with this product.
