Unpacking the ECI 6DS
Immediately upon receipt of the ECI 6DS, inspect the carton for
possible damage during shipment. The carton and packaging have been
designed to provide the safest possible protection for transport of your
integrated amplifier. Unpack the unit carefully. Save all packaging
materials for future shipment.

Set up procedure
Before connecting the ECI 6DS to the AC Power outlet, check that the
main voltage indicated on the rear panel corresponds to the line voltage
in the country were you intend to use the unit.
How to avoid damages
Do not under any circumstances connect or disconnect equipment when
power is turned on. The design of the RCA plug generates a huge transient when inserted. Connecting or disconnecting equipment with the
power on can result in severe damage to both speakers and amplifier.
How to avoid noise problems
The ECI 6DS contains delicate circuits that are sensitive to magnetic
stray fields. The unit should not be placed near power voltage transformers, TV sets etc. Care should also be taken regarding placement of the
interconnect cables. Do not run interconnect cables in parallel with main
cords or speaker cables. Keep interconnect cables as short as possible.
How to avoid possible antenna problems
In some set-ups hum may occur when you connect the radio, VCR or TV
to your system. The problem is caused by DC voltage coming from your
antenna. Please contact your cable network operator.

ENG
How to connect your system
Please read this page carefully and follow, page 20-21 as reference.
Balanced XLR input and operation
The balanced mode can only be used if the signal source has a
balanced output. Use an XLR interconnect with GND on pin 1, + on
pin2, and - on pin 3. To use the balanced input with a source single
ended, connect the ECP5XLR in the XLR
Single ended RCA input and operation:
The left channel is the top row on the rear, marked black. All inputs are
similar regarding sonic performance. Unused inputs may be shorted to
ground, using a RCA shorting plug.
HT (Home Theatre)
HT is a direct input where the volume control is bypassed. ECI 6DS will
work like a power amplifier with fixed gain. When selected the output
will be muted for a few seconds as a safety against accidental overload.
Preamp out:
The preamp out is dependent on the volume control setting, and MUTE
function. These outputs (balanced and single ended) can be used to control an additional power amplifier.
Speaker output:
Never short the positive output to ground or chassis. Switch the amplifier
off when connecting the speakers.
How to power up your system
You should always power up your system the following way:
Signal sources (CD player, tuner etc.) first. Allow a 30 seconds warm-up
before you turn on the ECI 6DS.
When switching off your system
Start with the ECI 6DS, then the signal sources. If the preamplifier output
is connected to a power amplifier, then turn off the power before or at
the same time as ECI 6DS.

ENG
How to connect your system
Please read this page carefully and follow, page 20-21.
SPDIF inputs
ECI 6DS will accept optical SPDIF sources up to 96 kHz/24bit on inputs
TOSLink1 and TOSLink2. Please use a optical TOSLink cable for this
connection. Connect coaxial sources up to 192kHz/24bit to inputs
COAX1 and COAX2. Please use a coaxial SPDIF cable for this
connection.
12V trigger Input/Output
The 12V trigger output may be used to automatically power up a
CD-player (or other equipment with 12V trigger input) when ECI 6DS is
powered up. When ECI 6DS powers up the 12V trigger output will be
set to 12V and will support up to 75 mA current output. Please keep the
current draw below 75 mA by limiting the number of devices connected
to the 12V trigger output.
The ECI 6DS will power up (leave standby) when a voltage in range
8-20V (AC or DC) is present on the 12V trigger input, and stays powered on for as long as the voltage is present. The current draw at the
12V trigger input is 3.3mA.
RS-232 Control Port
The RS-232 control port may be used in home installation setups or general
usage for controlling basic functionality on the ECI 6DS. Please refer
to document "ECI6DS RS232 Command Reference V1.pdf" for further information. This document may be downloaded from www.electrocompaniet.no

Important Notice
For optimal sonic performance, the ECI 6DS should be burned in for a
minimum time of 72 hours. The easiest way to burn in your ECI 6DS is
to put a signal at any input, without the speakers connected In daily
operation, switch off the ECI 6DS by using the MUTE button on the
remote control. If the ECI 6DS has been switched off, allow two hours of
warm-up to optimal sonic performance. Due to high class A operation in
all Electrocompaniet designs, it is normal for the ECI 6DS to feel warm.
Proper ventilation is important. It is important that there is at least 3-5 cm
(1-2inches) of air on the left side of the amplifier and 5-8 cm (2-3 inches)
above. Never cover the ventilation area.
