Hazard warnings on the rear of the receiver
The label shown on the left is attached to the rear of the device. The
symbols on this label have the following meaning:
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated
dangerous voltage within the device’s enclosure that may be of sufficient
magnitude to constitute risk of fire or electric shock.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the risk of electric shock if the
device is opened. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing
to qualified personnel only.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance instructions in the literature accompanying
this device.
Power source
This device should be operated only from the type of power source
indicated on the type plate. If you are not sure of the type of power supply
to your building, consult your dealer or local power company.
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this may result in fire
and electric shock.
Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has
used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or those having the
same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may
result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
Safety check
Upon completion of any service or repairs to this device, ask the service
technician to perform safety checks to determine that the device is in safe
operating order.
Danger of hearing damage due to high volumes
This is a professional receiver. Commercial use is subject to the rules and
regulations of the trade association responsible. Sennheiser, as the
manufacturer, is therefore obliged to expressly point out possible health
risks arising from use.
This receiver is capable of producing sound pressure exceeding 85 dB(A).
85 dB(A) is the sound pressure corresponding to the maximum
permissible volume which is by law (in some countries) allowed to affect
your hearing for the duration of a working day. It is used as a basis
according to the specifications of industrial medicine. Higher volumes or
longer durations can damage your hearing. At higher volumes, the
duration must be shortened in order to prevent hearing damage. The
following are sure signs that you have been subjected to excessive noise
for too long a time:
y You can hear ringing or whistling sounds in your ears.
y You have the impression (even for a short time only) that you can no
longer hear high notes.

Putting the receiver into operation
Putting the receiver into operation
Fitting the device feet
When the receiver is not installed in a rack, avoid the receiver sliding
around and reduce the chance of damage to the receiver and to any
surface on which it is placed by fixing the four soft rubber self adhesive
feet to the base of the receiver in the positions indicated.
Note:
Do not fit the rubber feet when rack mounting the receiver.
CAUTION! Risk of staining of furniture surfaces!
Some furniture surfaces have been treated with varnish, polish
or synthetics which might cause stains when they come into
contact with other synthetics. Despite a thorough testing of the
synthetics used by us, we cannot rule out the possibility of
staining.
왘 Do not place the receiver on delicate surfaces.
왘 Ensure that the base of the receiver is clean and free from grease
before fitting the rubber feet.
왘 Fix the rubber feet to the base of the receiver by peeling off the backing
paper and fitting them as shown in the diagram on the left.
Rack mounting
CAUTION! Risks when rack mounting the receiver!
When installing the device in a closed or multi-rack assembly,
please consider that, during operation, the ambient
temperature within the rack may significantly rise above room
temperature.
왘 The ambient temperature within the rack must not exceed
the temperature limit specified in the specifications.
왘 When installing the device in a rack, take good care not to
affect the ventilation required for safe operation or provide
additional ventilation.
왘 Make sure the mechanical loading of the rack is even to
avoid a hazardous condition such as a severely unbalanced
rack.
왘 When connecting the device to the power supply, observe
the information indicated on the type plate. Avoid circuit
overloading. If necessary, provide overcurrent protection.
왘 Ensure a reliable mains ground connection of the device by
taking appropriate measures.
왘 When installing the device in a closed or multi-rack
assembly, please note that intrinsically harmless leakage
currents of the individual devices may accumulate, thereby
exceeding the allowable limit value. As a remedy, ground the
rack via an additional ground connection.
13
Putting the receiver into operation
The rack mount “ears” are already attached to the receiver at the factory.
To mount the device into a 19" rack:
왘 Slide the receiver into the 19" rack.
왘 Secure the rack mount “ears” 1 to the rack using four screws (not
included).
Connecting the antennas
CAUTION! Danger of short-circuit due to uninsulated antennas!
If you switch the booster supply voltage on, a 12 V DC voltage is
applied to the antennas – even when you switch the receiver off!
If uninsulated antennas come into contact with objects which
conduct electricity, this voltage can produce sparking and audio
interference.
왘 Either use insulated antennas or
왘 always mount uninsulated antennas so that they cannot
come into contact with objects which conduct electricity.
The two antenna inputs R and O allow you to connect either:
y the two supplied telescopic antennas to the rear of the receiver (see
next section) or
y the two supplied telescopic antennas to the front of the receiver (see
“Mounting the antennas to the front of the rack” on page 15) or
y two remote antennas to the rear of the receiver (see “Mounting and
connecting remote antennas” on page 16).
In addition, the receiver has two daisy chain outputs Q and P for
supplying the antenna signals to further receivers (see “Daisy chaining up
to eight twin receivers” on page 16).
Connecting the antennas to the rear of the receiver
The telescopic antenna can be mounted quickly and easily and are suitable
for all applications where – good reception conditions provided – a
wireless transmission system is to be used without a large amount of
installation work.
왘 Connect the telescopic antennas to the BNC sockets O and R at the
rear of the receiver.
왘 Align the telescopic antennas upwards in a V-shape.
14
Putting the receiver into operation
Mounting the antennas to the front of the rack
When rack mounting the receiver, you require the GA 3030 AM antenna
mount (available as an accessory) to mount the antenna connections to
the front of the rack. The GA 3030 AM antenna mount consists of:
y 2 BNC extension cables (screw-in BNC socket W to BNC connector [)
y 2 antenna holders Z
y 4 screws
y 2 washers Y
y 2 nuts X
왘 Unsecure the rack mount “ears” 1 from the rack.
왘 Guide the BNC cables through the holes in the rack mount “ears” as
shown in the diagram on the left.
왘 Screw the antenna holders Z to the BNC sockets Y using the supplied
washers X and nuts W.
왘 Secure the antenna holders Z to the handles of the receiver using two
of the supplied screws respectively.
왘 Connect the two BNC connectors [ to the BNC sockets O and R at the
rear of the receiver.
왘 Slide the receiver into the 19’’ rack.
왘 Resecure the rack mount “ears” 1 to the rack.
왘 Connect the antennas \ to the BNC sockets W.
왘 Align the antennas upwards in a V-shape.
15
Putting the receiver into operation
Mounting and connecting remote antennas
Use a remote antenna (available as accessories) when the receiver
position is not the best antenna position for optimum reception.
왘 Connect the remote antennas to the BNC sockets O and R at the rear
of the receiver using a low-attenuation 50-Ω coaxial cable.
Note:
Ready-made antenna cables from Sennheiser are available as
accessories with length of 1 m, 5 m and 10 m (see “Accessories/spare
parts” on page 43).
왘 If you connect active antennas (e.g. A 3700, AD 3700) or antenna
boosters (e.g. AB 3700), switch the DC supply voltage for external
active antennas and antenna boosters on (see page 30) so that the
LEDs N and S light up; if you do not connect active antennas or
antenna boosters, switch the booster supply voltage off so that the
LEDs N and S do not light up.
Note:
If the booster supply voltage is switched on (see page 30), it remains
switched on even when the receiver is switched off.
왘 Position antennas in the same room in which the transmission takes
place! Maintain a minimum distance of 1 m between antennas and a
minimum distance of 50 cm between antennas and metal objects
(including reinforced concrete walls)!
Daisy chaining up to eight twin receivers
ANT A
ANT B
The twin receivers feature an integrated antenna splitter so that up to
eight twin receivers can be daisy chained using the supplied short antenna
daisy chain cables. The label V indicates the daisy chained frequency
range.
왘 Connect the two supplied telescopic antennas or two remote antennas
(available as accessories) to the BNC sockets O and R at the rear of
the first twin receiver.
왘 Use the supplied 50 Ω antenna cables to daisy chain the twin receivers
as shown in the diagram on the left.
Note:
The antenna signals are also daisy chained when a receiver is switched
off. If the booster supply voltage is switched on (see page 28), it
remains switched on even when the receiver is switched off.
16
Putting the receiver into operation
Connecting the receiver to the mains/disconnecting the

can cause damage to the device.
왘 Use the supplied mains cable to connect the receiver to the
mains (100 to 240 V AC, 50 or 60 Hz).
왘 Ensure a reliable mains ground connection of the receiver –
especially when you are using multi-outlet power strips or
extension cables.
The receiver has no mains switch. To connect the receiver to the mains:
왘 Connect the supplied mains cable to the 3-pin mains socket D.
왘 Plug the mains connector into the wall socket.
To disconnect the receiver from the mains:
왘 Pull out the mains connector from the wall socket.
All daisy chained signals are interrupted, i.e.:
– the antenna signals at the daisy chain outputs Q and P,
– the booster supply voltage,
– the signals of the external word clock generator.
Connecting the amplifier/mixing console
The receiver has transformer balanced audio outputs.
왘 Connect the amplifier/mixing console to the XLR-3 socket
AF out 1 M (left receiver) or to the XLR-3 socket AF out 2 K (right
receiver).
왘 Via the operating menu of the corresponding receiver, adjust the level
of the audio output to the input of the amplifier or mixing console (see
“Adjusting the audio output level” on page 31).
Connecting devices with AES3 digital input
The digital balanced XLR-3M audio output G outputs the signals of both
receivers in AES3 format.
왘 Use a special double-shielded 110 Ω AES3 cable to connect the device
with AES3 digital input to the digital balanced XLR-3M audio
output G.
This ensures that the digital data transmission interferes with the RF
reception.
Note:
A ready-made AES3 cable from Sennheiser is available as an accessory
with a length of 10 m (see “Accessories/spare parts” on page 43).
왘 Via the “Clock” menu, select the desired sampling rate (see “Selecting
the sampling rate for digitalization” on page 31).
17
Putting the receiver into operation
Connecting an external word clock generator
The receiver can digitalize the audio signal and output it via the digital
balanced XLR-3M audio output G. The built-in A/D converter supports
sampling rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz.
If you want to connect an external word clock generator instead, proceed
as follows:
왘 Use a shielded 75 Ω coaxial BNC cable to connect the external word
clock generator to the BNC socket H.
왘 Select “Ext.” in the “Clock” menu (see “Selecting the sampling rate for
digitalization” on page 31).
The display for external word clock synchronization B:
– lights up permanently when the digital audio output of the receiver
is synchronized with the external word clock generator,
– flashes when “Ext.” is selected in the “Clock” menu but no external
word clock generator is connected,
– flashes when the signal of the external word clock generator is
available but has not synchronized the digital audio output of the
receiver
– is off when the receiver’s internal word clock generator is used.
Notes:
– Both receivers of a twin receiver use the same word clock signal.
– The receiver has a BNC socket for word clock daisy chain output I for
supplying the word clock signal to further daisy chained receivers
using the supplied BNC word clock daisy chain cable. The word clock
signal is also daisy chained when a receiver is switched off.
Connecting the receivers to a PC via Ethernet
The receivers can be centrally configured and monitored via a PC and the
supplied “Wireless Systems Manager” software. Additionally, you can
update the firmware in the receivers.
To connect the receivers to a PC:
Note:
If you want to connect several receivers to the same Ethernet socket of
your network, you require a standard 100Base-T Ethernet switch.
왘 Connect the supplied RJ 45 Ethernet cable to the RJ 45 socket for LAN
connection F and to your switch or network.
왘 Install the “Wireless Systems Manager” software on your PC.
왘 Continue as described in the instruction manual of the “Wireless
Systems Manager” software.
The LED for LAN data transmission E lights up when data is
transmitted.
18
Using the receiver
Scanning
When you are working with the “Wireless Systems Manager” software,
you can use the “Spectrum Analyzer” tool to perform a continuous
frequency scan. The “Spectrum Analyzer“ tool uses the receiver that you
select to check the relevant frequency range for signals and records the
corresponding measured values. For detailed information, please refer to
the chapter “The ’RF Spectrum Analyzer’ tool” of the “Wireless Systems
Manager” manual.
When selecting this receiver in the “Spectrum Analyzer”, please note that
during the frequency scan:
y you cannot use the selected receiver for its normal purpose,
y the text “Scanning” is displayed and
y the receiver is automatically muted.

The two receivers of the EM 3732 or EM 3732 Command twin receiver are
commonly switched on and off with the -button C. The -button C is
not a mains switch.
Note:
If you only want to use one of the two receivers of the EM 3732 or
EM 3732 Command, you can set the second receiver to standby mode
(see “Setting a receiver to standby mode” on page 37).
To switch the receiver on:
왘 Press the -button C.
The display shows the product name (e.g. EM 3731) and the serial
number of the current firmware behind “Software”. The status display
appears after several seconds.
To switch the receiver off:
왘 Press the -button C for approx 2 seconds until the display goes off.
The receiver is switched off but daisy chained signals continue to be
output. This means that:
– the daisy chain outputs Q and P output the antenna signals,
– if the booster supply voltage is switched on (see page 30), it remains
switched on,
– the signal of the external word clock generator is looped through to
the word clock daisy chain output I.

Adjusting the squelch threshold
Squelch
Both receivers are equipped with a squelch that can be adjusted via the
“Squelch” menu. The squelch eliminates annoying noise when the
transmitter is switched off. It also suppresses sudden noise when there is
no longer sufficient transmitter power received by the receiver.
The squelch can be adjusted in 13 steps from 0 to 30 μV. Selecting a
smaller value reduces the squelch threshold, selecting a higher value
increases the squelch threshold. Adjust the squelch threshold – with the
transmitter switched off – to the lowest possible value that suppresses
hissing noise.
Notes:
– If the squelch threshold is adjusted too high, the transmission range
will be reduced. Therefore, always adjust the squelch threshold to the
lowest possible setting.
– If you adjust the squelch threshold to “0”, the squelch is switched off.
If no RF signal is being received, hissing noise will occur. This setting
is for test purposes only.
To adjust the squelch threshold:
왘 Before adjusting the squelch threshold to a different setting, set the
volume on a connected amplifier to the minimum.

Configuring the audio outputs of the EM 3732 Command twin receiver
Command
The EM 3732 Command twin receiver has two audio outputs per receiver:
1. the audio outputs AF out 1 M and AF out 2 K,
2. the command outputs Command 1 L and Command 2 J.
These audio outputs can be switched on and off via a button on the
transmitter – provided that the transmitter is also equipped with the
command function (a separate power pack with command button is
available for the SKM 5200 transmitter).
Via the “Command” menu, you can determine which of the audio and
command outputs are switched on and off when the command button on
the transmitter is pressed. There are four configuration options:

Multi-channel operation
Combined with Sennheiser 3000 and 5000 series transmitters, the
receivers can form transmission links that are suitable for multi-channel
operation.
CAUTION! Risk of reception interference!
If – within the receiver’s frequency range – transmitters
transmit on channels from different frequency banks, reception
can be subject to interference and inter-modulation. Only the
factory-preset frequencies within the frequency banks “1” to
“6” are interference and inter-modulation free.
왘 Set all transmitters of a multi-channel system to different
channels within the same frequency bank.
Before putting the transmission links into operation, we recommend that
you perform a scan in order to find a frequency bank with a sufficient
number of free channels:
왘 Switch all transmitters off.
왘 Use a receiver to scan all frequency banks for free channels (see
“Scanning the frequency banks for interference-free channels” on
page 33).
왘 Select a frequency bank with a sufficient number of free channels (see
“Selecting a frequency bank and a channel” on page 28).
왘 Set each transmitter/receiver pair in your multi-channel system to a
different free channel within this frequency bank.

HiDyn plus™ (HDP) noise reduction
RF link
Inherent
noise
of the RF link
Transmitter
Receiver
The EM 3731/3732 receivers are equipped with HDP, the Sennheiser noise
reduction system that reduces RF interference. It increases the signal-tonoise ratio in wireless audio transmission to more than 110 dB. HDP is a
wideband compander system which compresses the audio signal in the
transmitter in a 2:1 ratio (related to dB) to lift it above the inherent noise
floor of the RF link. In the receiver the signal is expanded in an identical and
opposite way in a 1:2 ratio to restore the original signal, at the same time
reducing the RF noise to below the noise floor of the receiver.
HDP has been specially developed for high quality radiomicrophone
systems.
The EM3731/3732 receivers feature a AES3 digital audio output for digital
mixing consoles. In the receiver the audio signal is digitalized as early as
possible so that the noise reduction (compander) can be realized digitally.
Note:
Only transmitters and receivers that are equipped with HDP can work
correctly with each other. If non HDP equipment was mixed with HDP,
the dynamic range would be drastically reduced and the transmission
would sound blunt and flat. HDP is permanently active and cannot be
switched off.
Squelch
Depending on the strength of the received RF signal, the receiver’s audio
output is opened or muted. Via the “Squelch” menu, the squelch threshold
can be adjusted in 15 steps from 0 to 30 μV.
38
Additional information
Diversity reception
The receivers operate on the “true diversity” principle:
A receiving antenna receives not only the electromagnetic waves which
reach it by a direct path, but also the reflections of these waves which are
created in the room by walls, windows, ceilings and fittings. When these
waves are superimposed, destructive interference occurs, which can also
be called “field strength gaps”. Repositioning the receiving antenna can
bring a solution. With mobile transmitters, however (which all
radiomicrophones are), the “field strength gap” will then occur with a
different transmitter position. These “field strength gaps” can only be
eliminated with true diversity receivers.
In true diversity, instead of one antenna and one receiver there are now
two antennas and two receiver sections. The antennas are spatially
separated. By means of a comparison circuit, the receiver section with the
strongest RF signal is always switched to the common AF output. The risk
of the occurrence of “field strength gaps” in both antennas at the same
time is virtually nonexistant.
The receiver display panel shows the active diversity section (A or B) (see
“Diversity display” on page 9).
