Battery operation
1. Slide the battery cover catch in the direction of the arrow. Open the
battery cover.
2. Fit six LR14 (C size) batteries into the spaces in the compartment.
Take care to ensure all batteries are inserted with the correct polarity
as shown next to the battery compartment. Replace the battery cover.
3. Reduced power, distortion and a 'stuttering' sound are all signs that
the batteries may need replacing. If your MP3 CD radio is not to be
used for a prolonged period of time, remove the batteries to avoid
damage by battery leakage.
•
We recommend for economy that your MP3 CD radio is used on the
mains whenever possible with battery operation for occasional or
stand-by use only.
IMPORTANT: The batteries should not be exposed to excessive
heat such as sunshine, fire or the like. After use, disposable batteries
should if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre. On no account
should batteries be disposed of by incineration.
Mains operation
1. Place your MP3 CD radio on a flat surface.
2. Plug the mains lead into the AC mains socket located towards the rear
of the unit ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
3. Plug the other end into a mains wall socket and switch on.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting the
radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the radio must
remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains completely, the mains plug should be removed from
the mains socket outlet completely.

MP3/WMA Mode
The Swallow 2 is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3/
WMA files. Files must be created at a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz.
In MP3/WMA mode the terms 'album' and 'file' are very important. 'Album'
corresponds to a folder on a PC, 'File' to a PC or a CD-DA track. The
device reads MP3/WMA files with a maximum of 255 files per album. An
MP3/WMA CD may not contain more than 512 files or albums in total.
The device sorts albums, or the files on an album, by name into alphabetical
order. If you wish to order them differently, change the name of the file or
album and put a number before the name.
When burning CD-R and CD-RWs with audio files, various problems may
arise which could lead to interference in playback. This can be caused
by faulty software or hardware settings or by the CD being used. Should
such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD burner or
software manufacturer or look for relevant information, for example on the
internet. When you are making audio CDs, observe all legal guidelines
and ensure that the copyright of third parties is not infringed.

Cautions
This section describes how to use your radio to access and playback your
audio files via USB memory devices.
In order to minimise the risk of damage to your radio or USB memory
device, please place the unit so that the device cannot be easily knocked
while it is inserted in the socket.
The Swallow 2 has been tested with a range of USB memory devices up to
32GB. However there are many different USB memory devices available
and not all devices can be guaranteed to work in the Swallow 2. Memory
must use the FAT or FAT 32 filing system in order to operate in the unit.
Important: Your radio is designed to work with USB flash memory devices.
It is not intended to be connected to hard disk drives or any other type
of USB device.
Remove the USB memory device before carrying the unit or if not using
the USB feature for a prolonged period.
Switch the unit off before removing your USB memory device.
Audio formats supported for playback are MP3 and WMA. Playback does
not support files encoded using WMA lossless, WMA voice, WMA 10
professional, nor files of any format which have DRM protection.
The USB socket is located on the rear right hand side of the radio.

MP3 ALBUM
Note: Playback control in USB mode is similar to CD-MP3/WMA mode
(see pages 18-23). MP3 and WMA files are played back in the order that
they are written to the USB memory device by your computer except when
random mode is used.
Note: The USB memory device should not be removed during playback
as damage or corruption of files may occur.
Note: If the unit is in the USB stop mode position for more than 15 minutes
it will automatically switch to the standby mode. The operation indicator and
the LCD will go off in such a case. To use the unit again switch on the unit.

General
Do not allow this radio to be exposed to water, steam or sand. Do not
leave your radio where excessive heat could cause damage such as in
a parked car where the heat from the sun can build up even though the
outside temperature may not seem too high. It is recommended that the FM
band be used wherever possible as better results in terms of quality and
freedom from interference will usually be obtained than on the MW band.
•
No objects filled with liquids such as vases, shall be placed on the
radio.
•
It is recommended to operate the product such that there is a minimum
distance (10cm recommended) to adjacent objects in order to ensure
good ventilation.

The nameplate is located on the underside of your CD radio.
Headphones
A 3.5mm Headphone socket located on the left side of the unit is provided
for use with either heaphones or an earpiece. Inserting a plug into the
socket automatically mutes the internal loudspeaker.
Please be aware that the sensitivity of headphones can vary widely. We
therefore recommend setting the volume to a low level before connecting
headphones to the radio.
IMPORTANT: Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones
can cause hearing loss.
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high
volume levels for long periods.
