DELAY INACTIVE
Indicates that the 610 has been
forced into a bypass state. This can
happen automatically as a result of
the EXIT DELAY function or manually
as a result of moving the STATUS
button on the front panel of the 610
to the BYPASS position.
DELAY ACTIVE
Indicates activation of the START
DELAY function.
3.5 SECONDS
Indicates that 3.5 seconds of delay
has been built into the program
audio.
7.5 SECONDS
Indicates that 7.5 seconds of delay
has been built into the program
audio.
EXIT DELAY
Initiates the gradual reduction of
delay time. Several minutes before
the end of the show, press this
button to have the Symetrix 610 time
compress the program audio until
there is nothing left in its memory
(zero seconds delay). At this point
the program is back in “real-time”
and the 610 automatically removes
itself from the signal path. This
button blinks as long as delay time is
decreasing. Its light switches off
when zero delay is achieved.

NAME
WHAT IT DOES
START DELAY
Initiates the gradual increase of delay
time. Press this button when a radio
talk show begins. The light of this
button blinks for as long as delay
time is increasing. The light shines
steady once full delay time (7.5
seconds) is achieved. See Appendix C
in the Symetrix 610 Broadcast Audio
Delay User’s Guide for more information.
COUGH
Mutes the incoming signal while
allowing the output signal to play
(uninterrupted) from the 610’s
memory. You can cough, have a
quick drink of water, or make a
comment to the producer or engineer
without any perceptible program
interruption.
When you press this button, the 610
plays from memory. If you press this
button for a period of time that
exceeds the amount of delay available, then there will be dead air for
the excess (muted output). When
you release the button, the 610
automatically begins to refill the
memory.
DUMP PROFANITY
Plays delayed programming stored in
memory to prevent unwanted audio
from reaching the airwaves. As the
program begins, the 610 gradually
and unobtrusively delays or
“stretches out” the program until 7.5
seconds of stereo audio is stored in
memory. When you press this button,
the memory is cleared. Then the 610
automatically begins to stretch (time
expand) the program audio again
until it attains the full 7.5 second
delay.
See Appendix C of the 610 Broadcast
Audio Delay User’s Guide for details
on how to select between a full memory
dump or a half memory—3.75 second

Important Information
Regarding Your Warranty
We would like to offer you an incentive to

Either fully complete and mail your product
registration card or register online at
www.symetrixaudio.com. You will then
have a total of 5 years of warranty
coverage, under the terms and limitations
as set forth below, without additional cost.
If you don’t register your product, you will
still receive one year of warranty coverage,
but it only takes a minute to fill out the
card or register online and we won’t share
your personal information with others.
Following are the terms and limitations of
the Symetrix warranty.
Warranty
Symetrix, Inc. expressly warrants to the
original purchaser (“Buyer”), subject to the
terms and conditions set forth below, that
the Product will be free from defects in
material and workmanship as a result of
normal commercial use for one (1) year
from the date of purchase. This warranty
will be automatically extended (subject to
the additional limitations set forth below)
for an additional four years if the Warranty
Registration is completed and returned to
Symetrix (or completed online) within
thirty (30) days of the date of delivery.
Symetrix’s warranty obligation is limited to
the repair, replacement, or refund at
Symetrix’s sole discretion, of the part or
parts of the Product which may thus prove
defective in materials or workmanship
within one year from date of purchase (or
five years from the date of purchase if
Buyer has registered its purchase as
provided above) under normal use and
which our examination discloses to our
satisfaction to be thus defective, provided
that Buyer gives Symetrix prompt notice of
its warranty claim and satisfactory proof
thereof.
Symetrix will make every reasonable effort
to ensure that parts are available to
support the repair of our products under
warranty. In the event that a product or
component part thereof becomes obsolete,
unavailable or irreparable, Symetrix
reserves the right to refund a prorated
portion of the purchase price in full
satisfaction of all warranty claims. A refund
of the purchase price is prorated as
follows: 100% through year one, 80%
through year two, 60% through year three,
40% through year four and 20% through
year five.
In order to serve you better we request
that the Buyer shall, prior to shipping
Product to Symetrix for warranty service,
contact Symetrix and secure a Return
Authorization Number that shall be
included with the returned Product. This
will facilitate our efforts to keep track of
your Product and process your warranty
repair as quickly as possible. Buyer will
prepay all freight charges to ship the
Product to Symetrix for warranty inspection
and service. This warranty is subject to
Symetrix’s inspection of the Product at its
facilities and, upon Symetrix’s request,
satisfactory proof of purchase (dated copy
of original retail dealer’s invoice.)
Symetrix reserves the right to effect
repairs to the product with reconditioned
components/parts. Products once repaired
under warranty will be shipped to Buyer
freight prepaid by Symetrix via United
Parcel Service (surface) or any similar
shipper, to any location designated by
buyer within the Continental United States.
At Buyer’s request and expense Product
will be returned via airfreight. Outside the
continental United States, repaired or
replaced products will be returned freight
collect.
THIS WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, ARISING BY LAW OR OTHERWISE
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY
OBLIGATIONS OF THE SELLER WITH
RESPECT TO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES)
INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR USE AND
OF ALL OTHER OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES ON OUR PART, AND WE NEITHER
ASSUME, NOR AUTHORIZE ANY OTHER
PERSON TO ASSUME FOR US, ANY OTHER
LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE
SALE OF THE PRODUCT. THIS WARRANTY
SHALL NOT APPLY TO THIS PRODUCT OR
ANY PART THERE OF WHICH HAS BEEN
SUBJECT TO ACCIDENT, NEGLIGENCE,
ALTERATION, ABUSE, OR MISUSE. WE
MAKE NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER IN
RESPECT TO ACCESSORIES OR PARTS NOT
SUPPLIED BY US. THE TERM “ORIGINAL
PURCHASER,” AS USED IN THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE DEEMED TO MEAN THAT
PERSON OR COMPANY THAT ORIGINALLY
PURCHASED THE PRODUCT.
This Symetrix product has been designed
and manufactured for use in professional
and studio audio systems and is not
intended for other usage. This warranty
only applies to Buyers using the Product in

third party, including any dealer or sales
representative, to assume any liability,
effect any repairs or modifications to the

or representation regarding the Product or
Product information on behalf of Symetrix.
Symetrix’s total liability on any claim,
whether in contract, tort (including
negligence) or otherwise arising out of,
connected with, or resulting from the
manufacture, sale, delivery, resale, repair,
replacement or use of Product will not
exceed the purchase price of the Product or
any part thereof which gives rise to the
claim. In no event will Symetrix be liable
for any incidental or consequential
damages including but not limited to
damage for lost revenue, cost of capital,
claims of customers for service interruptions or failure to supply, and costs and
