The four Input Priority ‘dip switch’ seZngs are as follows: " 
Standby Off/Sleep – In the ‘on’ posi`on the Rialto 400 will not switch automa`cally into standby/sleep mode and will remain on con`nuously. " 
Digital – In the ‘on’ posi`on the Rialto 400 will priori`ze a digital signal input ahead of an analog signal. If the digital signal stops, the Rialto 400 will switch back to an incoming analog signal if present. " 
Analog – In the ‘on’ posi`on the Rialto 400 will priori`ze an analog signal input ahead of a digital signal. If the analog signal stops, the Rialto 400 will switch back to an incoming digital signal if present. " 
All On – In the ‘on’ posi`on the Rialto will have no overriding priority and all inputs will play. Play back should be controlled by the various sources as ‘All-­‐On’ could result in both digital and analog sources being heard as no priori`za`on has been set. Example A Standby off & set to ‘DIGITAL’ priority Example C Standby off & set to inputs ‘ALL ON’ Example D Standby on & set to inputs ‘All ON’ OFF ON The op`mal set-­‐up for the Rialto 400 is as a single-­‐source or two-­‐source set-­‐up with one digital and/or one analog input allowing for priori`za`on between the two inputs depending on what is required for your desired set-­‐up.

The following steps will help you through the process of level matching, although at the end of the day, your ears will be your guide! 1.  Depending on your source (i.e. SONOS Connect, TV, CD Player, Gaming Console, Digital Player, Receiver, Preamp etc.) and the amount of gain you want to set, adjust one of the three ‘Gain SeZng knobs’ on the back of the Rialto 400 (Digital Volume, Analog Volume or Speaker Level Volume) to ‘minimum’ for the input you are adjus`ng the gain for. This is known as “turning down your gains”. Digital Gain Adjust for digital input gain Analog Gain 2.  Start playing some dynamic music and adjust the volume level on your source unit to your normal listening level using the source’s volume control. Adjust for analog input gain Speaker Level Gain 3.  Now increase the amount of gain on your Rialto 400 so that the volume increases to your maximum ‘LOUD’ listening level. For some of you, this may be louder than others! 4.  Con`nue to fine tune the gain level on your Rialto 400 to adjust to personal preferences, ‘loudness’ and musicality! At this level of gain, it will s`ll allow you to increase the source volume up and down to achieve minimum levels or rock the houses in the next street (assuming your speakers are game for it and you have understanding neighbors!). AudioControl User Manual -­‐ Rialto 400 Adjust for speaker level input gain 5. 
Repeat for the various source inputs you are using on the Rialto 400. The end result being that you will have amazing sounding music and the ability through level matching the ‘gains’ with your sources to ‘crank up the volume’ fully benefiZng from the power and capability of the Rialto 400 ‘wabs’ and the musicality of the internal DAC. It’s like magic! 13 Opera;on Adjus;ng AudioControl AccuBASS™ AccuBASS™ Bass Level Adjustment AudioControl's AccuBASS™ circuit is designed to help recover the bass that goes missing in compressed music files or when volume is increased and the bass frequencies roll away. AudioControl’s AccuBASS™ is a simple one-­‐`me adjustment at the `me of installa`on to give your system great bass at all volume levels and add back in an incredible sounding richness to your music. 1.  Start playing some dynamic bass-­‐rich music and adjust the volume level on your source unit to an above average listening level using the source’s volume control. 2.  Now increase AccuBass™ level by slowly turning the dial clockwise un`l the amount of bass being restored meets your own personal preferences. 3.  You will hear bass being restored to the music as you increase the level of AccuBASS™ as well as the richness of the audio steadily improve as bass frequencies are restored to the music. AccuBASS™ 4.  Con`nue to fine tune the AccuBASS™ level on your Rialto 400 to adjust to your personal preferences. Adjust to rejuvenate the bass level response increasing the richness of the music and bass level 5.  You’re done! You will have smooth, seamless bass at all volumes and you can even use the AccuBass™ level control to give a lible extra boost to the bass if you like more bass in your music.

The Legalese Sec;on! Our Warranty People are confused by warran`es! Lots of fine print. Months of wai`ng around. Well, fear no more AudioControl is here. This warranty is designed to make you rave about AudioControl. It’s a warranty that looks out for our customers, plus helps you resist the tempta`on to have your friend, “who is good with electronics”, try to repair your AudioControl product. So go ahead, read this warranty, then register the informa`on at www.audiocontrolregistra`on.com. “Condi`onal” doesn’t mean anything ominous. The Federal Trade Commission tells all manufacturers to use the term to indicate that certain condi`ons have to be met before they’ll honor the warranty. If you meet all of these condi`ons, we will warrant all materials and workmanship on the Rialto 400 for five (5) years from the date you bought it, and we will fix or replace it, at our op`on, during that `me. Here are the condi;onal condi;ons: 1. You need to register your purchase of the Rialto 400 with us by going to the AudioControl web site www.audiocontrol.com and then go to the warranty registra`on page and follow the direc`ons. Op`onally, go to www.audiocontrolregistra`on.com. 2. You must keep your sales receipt for proof of purchase showing when and from whom the unit was purchased. We’re not the only ones who require this, so it’s a good habit to get into with any major purchase. 3. The Rialto 400 must have originally been purchased from an authorized AudioControl dealer. You do not have to be the original owner, but you do need a copy of the original sales slip. 4. You cannot let anybody who isn’t: (A) the AudioControl factory; or (B) somebody authorized in wri`ng by AudioControl to service the Rialto 400. If anyone other than (A), or (B) messes with the Rialto 400, that voids your warranty. 5. The warranty is also void if the serial number is altered or removed, or if The Rialto 400 has been used improperly. Now that sounds like a big loophole, but here is all we mean by it: Unwarranted abuse is: (A) physical damage (don’t use the Rialto 400 to level your dining room table); (B) improper connec`ons (120 volts into the RCA jacks can fry the poor thing); (C) sadis`c things! This is the best product we know how to build, but if you strap it to the front bumper of your Range Rover, something might break. Assuming you conform to 1 through 5, and it really isn’t all that hard to do, we get the op`on of fixing your old unit or replacing it with a new one. AudioControl User Manual -­‐ Rialto 400 17 This is the only warranty given by AudioControl. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have rights that vary from state to state. Promises of how well the Rialto 400 will work are not implied by this warranty. Other than what we’ve said we’ll do in this warranty, we have no obliga`on, express or implied. We make no warranty of merchantabilty or fitness for any par`cular purpose. Also neither we nor anyone else who has been involved in the development or manufacture of the unit will have any liability of any incidental, consequen`al, special or puni`ve damages, including but not limited to any lost profits or damage to other parts of your system by hooking up to the unit (whether the claim is one for breach of warranty, negligence of other tort, or any other kind of claim). Some states do not allow limita`ons of consequen`al damages. Failure to register your product negates any service claims. The warranty included with the unit shall supersede this plain-­‐text version if there is any inconsistency between the two.
