GENERAL INFORMATION
This DAB receiver MD4000 is designed to be used with the MR4000 head unit.
This user manual refers directly to the use and function of the MD4000 when connected to the
approved head unit.
■ DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast)
DAB refers to Digital Audio Broadcasting, a system whereby several programs can be transmitted
simultaneously on one frequency through the compression of digital audio signals. Unlike
existing analog AM and FM broadcasts, DAB does not suffer from the same interference that can,
on occasion spoil the listening pleasure of such AM and FM broadcasts. You may have noticed
that when listening to an FM broadcast, especially whilst driving a car that the signal may hiss
and fizz as well as fade in and out. This hissing and fade occur as a result of the FM signal
bouncing of large objects such as trees, buildings, bridges and hills. This is known as multipath
interference, during multipath interference the signal arrives at your radio in a confused and out
of phase state.
DAB broadcast and reception offers many benefits and cures many of the problems associated
with Analog broadcasts. As your DAB receiver is Digital it contains a computer that is able to sort
through any distortion in multipath radio signals, and thereby enhance the main signal and offer
a clear reception even in challenging environments and built up city areas. This gives the result
of a quality of music comparable to that found on the latest musical compact discs. In utilising a
DAB receiver you will also benefit from up to the minute, interference free data services as well
as additional radio broadcasts.
DAB broadcasts are transmitted in a multiplex on a single frequency, this enables an entire
collection of radio channels or services to be broadcast on the same single frequency. These
groups or collections of channels and services are known as an “ENSEMBLE”.
Some of the larger DAB broadcast stations may transmit several ensembles covering a broad
spectrum of programs to cater for many tastes. The amount of programs within an ensemble is
flexible and dependant upon the provider and even in some cases the time of day or day of week.

GREATER USABILITY WITH DAB
As well as providing enhanced reception and CD comparable sound quality, DAB also allows for
the transmission of additional data alongside the audio broadcast. This additional information
allows for selection of programs by type (PTY). PTY places programs into categories by subject
and content, allowing the user easier and simplified selection of the desired subject matter e.g.
Science, Rock Music or Classical, with 30 presets to choose from finding a program has never been
easier. When PTY is selected the receiver will filter and select the program or programs if available
that you wish to listen to. You will also have access to PAD (Program Associated Data) a service
that provides more information regarding the current program type, content, title and artist.
As the DAB uses an intelligent computerised receiver it will through utilising the DAB/FM switch
automatically switch between DAB and FM broadcasts should the received signal deteriorate or
if you move out of a DAB covered zone.

INSTALLATION
Refer to the separate installation card.
Before installation and mounting please ensure that all parts needed are present, and that you
have the correct tools needed to complete the task.
As the MD4000 DAB Receiver has initially to be connected to the MR4000 Radio, it is strongly
recommended that the negative car battery terminal be disconnected until the receiver has been
mounted and fully installed.
B L U E C O N N E C T O R C 3 for the MD4000 DAB receiver
You can connect the MD4000 DAB Receiver to the MR4000 Radio by utilising the C3 Blue
Connector and cabling supplied. Please ensure that all cabling is long enough (dependant on
placement of the MD4000) and that the cable is not trapped or forced too tightly around
obstructions which may cause damage to the cable.
Reconnect the set only after fully installing the MD4000 DAB Receiver.
■ MOUNTING
Where you decide to mount the MD4000 DAB Receiver is dependant on the space available
within your vehicle.
When installing the MD4000 DAB Receiver always take care not to place it where it obstructs the
driver or passengers or where, in the event of an accident it may cause injury to the driver or passengers of the vehicle.

Program Associated Data is a service provided by DAB stations, it is the broadcast of additional
associated data. Stations may choose to digitise additional information for the user to view ‘on
screen’. This additional information may consist of the service providers station name and
address, telephone numbers, e-mail address, internet URL. The PAD service may also contain
specific information relating to the current program, artist, track title or album title. As DAB is
a digital service any information that can be digitised is able to be transmitted as PAD. All of this
information can be viewed on screen and stored in the units memory for future recall and
reference.
When you access a service that provides PAD information, the DAB icon will change to show the
first line of PAD information.

Once the PAD information has been received it can be fully accessed by pressing the ‘display’
button. Up to 8 lines of PAD information can be received, viewed and stored in the memory.

■ THE DAB/FM SWITCH
The DAB/FM Switch is a unique function that allows the best quality of reception possible. When
in DAB mode Digital Broadcasts will always have priority, however should the signal become too
weak or distorted the DAB/FM Switch (when activated ) will automatically ‘switch’ to the FM
broadcast of the station that you are listening to. The MD4000 will automatically switch between
the two broadcasts ensuring the highest quality of reception possible.
