SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Every person involved with the installation, operation and maintenance of this system has to:
be qualified
follow the instructions of this manual
CAUTION! Be careful with your operations.
With a dangerous voltage you can suffer
a dangerous electric shock when touching the wires!
Before you initial start-up, please make sure that there is no damage caused by transportation. Should
there be any, consult your dealer and do not use the system.
To maintain perfect condition and to ensure a safe operation, it is absolutely necessary for the user to
follow the safety instructions and warning notes written in this manual.
Please consider that damages caused by manual modifications to the system are not subject to
warranty.
This system contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer servicing to qualified technicians only.
IMPORTANT:
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any resulting damages caused by the nonobservance of this manual or any unauthorized modification to the system.
Never let the power-cord come into contact with other cables! Handle the power-cord and all
connections with the mains with particular caution!
2
Never remove warning or informative labels from the unit.
Never use anything to cover the ground contact.
Never leave any cables lying around.
Do not insert objects into air vents.
Do not connect this system to a dimmerpack.
Do not switch the system on and off in short intervals, as this would reduce the system’s life.
Do not open the device and do not modify the device.
Do not drive the inputs with a signal level bigger, than required to drive the equipment to full
output.
Do not plug Mics into the console (or stagebox) while Phantom Power is on. Also mute the monitor
/ Pa system when turning Phantom Power on or off. Allow the system to adjust for a couple of
seconds, before setting the input gains.
Only use system indoor, avoid contact with water or other liquids.
Avoid flames and do not put close to flammable liquids or gases.
Always disconnect power from the mains, when system is not used. Only handle the power-cord
by the plug. Never pull out the plug by tugging the power-cord.
Always operate the unit with the AC ground wire connected to the electrical system ground.
Make sure you don’t use the wrong kind of cables or defective cables.
Make sure that the signals into the mixer are balanced, otherwise hum could be created.
Make sure you use DI boxes to balance unbalanced signals; All incoming signals should be clear.
Make sure that the available voltage is not higher than stated on the rear panel.
Make sure that the power-cord is never crimped or damaged. Check the system and the powercord from time to time.
Please turn off the power switch, when changing the power cord or signal cable, or select the

Functions
1/ 2/ 3. Mic Channel EQ Treble/ Mid / Bass
The mic channel is fitted with 3-band EQ. The Treble (3) and Bass (7)
shelving controls have their frequencies fixed at 13 Khz and 70 Hz
respectively. The Mid range control (1) has a center frequency of
1 kHz. The Bass and Mid bands have up to 23 dB cut and 12 dB boost,
the High band has up to 14dB cut and up to 12dB boost all three bands
have a centre detent for “OFF”. Turning the Equalizer level control to the
right amplifies the frequency range, turning to the left attenuates the
signal. Minor changes to the Equalizer control usually produce the best
results. Try to avoid excessive enhancement of the MID band.
4. Talkover Switch
This switch has two modes:
A. On: With the switch in this position, the Microhone channel is
activated and is mixed with channel 1-3.
B. Off: In this position the Microphone channel is deactivated.
C. -14dB: In this position the Microphone channel is activated and
The levels of channels 1-3 are attenuated by 14dB.

show -40, -30, -20, -10, -7, -4, -2dB. The red LEDs show 0,
+3, +4, +7 and +10dB. The accurate level indication
allows you to monitor channel level at anytime. If the red
LEDs frequently blink or constantly light, the
corresponding channel is likely to enter clipping and you
have to reduce the input’s amplification using the gain
control. Make sure that the red LEDs light only briefly
during dynamic peaks.
9. PAN
By using the PAN control you can change the input
signal’s position within the stereo image. When the
PAN control is set to center position, the audio signal is
equal for both the left and right bus.

turntable. To the Aux/Phono (50, 53) input on the
rearpanel.
11. Gain
Use this control to match the connected devices optimally to your DS-CM-10. With the fader set to ¾
stroke, adjust the gain with a loud input signal in such a way that the Red LED’s on the Channel VUmeter (8) do not light up.
12/ 14 / 15. Channel EQ Treble/Mid/Low
Each channel is fitted with 3-band EQ. The Treble (12) and Bass (15) shelving controls have their
frequencies fixed at 12 Khz and 80 Hz respectively. The Mid range control (14) has a center frequency
of 1 kHz. The Bass band has has up to 30 dB cut and 12 dB boost, The Mid band has has up to 35 dB
cut and 12 dB boost and the High band has up to 14 dB cut and up to 12 dB boost. All three bands
have a centre detent for “OFF”. Turning the Equalizer level control to the right amplifies the frequency
range, turning to the left attenuates the signal. Minor changes to the Equalizer control usually
produce the best results. Try to avoid excessive enhancement of the MID band.
13. Channel Fader
Use the faders to control the levels of channel 1-3.
16. Selection Switch (Aux/ Line 3/Line 4)
With this switch you can assign the Aux (26), the Line 3 (48) or the line 4 (47) input to channel 3.
17. Cue
