LISTENING FOR A LIFE TIME
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to
consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic Industries Association’s
Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound
come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to a higher volume of sound. So what sounds “normal” can
actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you
listening for a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often
undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Some common decibel ranges:
Level
Example
30
40
50
60
70
80
Quiet library, Soft whispers
Living room, Refrigerator, Bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, Normal Conversation
Air Conditioner at 20 ft., Sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, Hair dryer, Noisy Restaurant
Average city traffic, Garbage disposals, Alarm clock at 2 ft.
The following noises can be dangerous under constant exposure:
Level
90
100
120
140
180
Example
Subway, Motorcycle, Truck traffic, Lawn Mower
Garbage truck, Chainsaw, Pneumatics drill
Rock band concert in front of speakers
Gunshot blast, Jet plane

BEFORE GETTING STARTED
Thank you for purchasing the DTX-5000G Professional Digital Karaoke Mixer/CD+G Decoder/Pre-Amp. At VocoPro we care about
product quality and customer satisfaction. We know the DTX-5000G will provide years of high-quality enjoyment and reliable music
entertainment for you when used properly.
(Please Read Carefully Before Using Your New DTX-5000G)
Unpacking the DTX-5000G:
Carefully remove the CDG-5000G from its carton. It is recommended that the original packaging materials be retained, should it
become necessary to return the product for any reason.
Be Sure You Have the Parts and Components Included with the DTX-5000G:
1- DTX-5000G
1- Fiber-optic Digital Cable
2- Batteries
1- RCA Dual
1- Remote Control
Supplying Power to the DTX-5000G:
Be sure that all your components, i.e. TV monitor, etc., are connected to the DTX-5000G before connecting it to a power source and
supplying power to the unit. Be sure to use caution when plugging any electrical appliance into a power receptacle. The DTX-5000G
is supplied with its own permanently attached power cord that can be plugged into any 120 Volt AC wall outlet or surge protector.
Player Requirements for Decoding CD+G’s:
(a) Your player must have a digital output, either coaxial or optical
(b) Your player’s digital output MUST support the T1 CD sub-code format
(Please check with the manufacturer of your player for compatibility information)
(c) The player must NOT have a T2 shock-buffer (memory buffer)
T1 Sub-Code and Digital Shock Buffers:
The T1 CD sub-code is the format into which graphical data is stored within a CD disc. A T2 digital shock-buffer is a feature that prevents skipping when the unit is subjected to shock by pre-recording three to five seconds of data into memory so that corrections can
be made without interruption. Unfortunately this process also changes the T1 CD sub-code into a format that is not compatible with
CD+G graphics decoders. In other words, graphics
information is lost when it is passed through a digital shock buffer. Therefore, it is recommended to only connect players without T2
digital shock buffers to the DTX-5000G.
Below is a list of known compatible players:
• American DJ (800 322 6337): DJ-1, DCD-200, DCD-300
• Gemini (800 848 9591): CD110, 210, 12, CDJ10, 15, 1100
• Numark (401 295 9000): CD Mix One, CD-N23s
• Panasonic: All of their CD and DVD players with a digital output
• Pioneer (800 782 7210): CDJ 100S, CDJ-700, CDJ-700S, CDJ500-2
All their DVD players with a digital output.
• Sony (800 892 7669): All CD/DVD players with a digital output
• Stanton (954 929 8999): S-500
(Check with manufacturer for up to date information. The above list was gathered in our demo tests, and results may differ with
units manufactured thereafter).

Please make sure to remove the protective covers from these inputs prior to connecting an optical inputs.
NOTE: When not using these inputs, keep the protective covers on to protect them from dust and
foreign material.
4. DIGITAL 1 & 2 COAXIAL (2) – These inputs are for connecting digital devices with a COAXIAL cable.
5. DIGITAL 1 & 2 OPT/COAX INPUT SELECTOR – This switch toggles between the OPTICAL and COAXIAL input
jacks. Each digital channel has its own OPT/COAX INPUT SELECTOR. Use this switch to toggle between devices.
For example, if you have a device connected to OPT on DG1, you would set DG1’s OPT/COAX INPUT SELECTOR
to OPT.
6. NTSC/PAL VIDEO SELECTOR – This switch toggles between NTSC and PAL video modes. In order for CD+G
graphics to display correctly, this switch must be set correctly. For North, South and Central America set this
switch to NTSC. For European countries, select PAL.
NOTE: The NTSC/PAL switch is for the CD+G graphics monitor only.
7. VIDEO IN (3) - These VIDEO IN jacks allow the video portion of A/V devices i.e. CD+G, VCD, DVD players to be

VIDEO OUT (3) – The DTX-5000G has 3 RCA style VIDEO OUT jacks. These VIDEO OUT jacks supply video to
monitors, TFT displays and compatible TV’s. Connect RCA style video cables from these VIDEO OUT jacks to the
VIDEO IN jacks on your display devices.
NOTE: You will not be able to use the OSD (On-Screen Display) with VIDEO OUT jack 1, as that jack is
designed to be connected to a karaoke singer’s monitor, and OSD display text would distract the singer.
9.
AUDIO IN (3) – These AUDIO IN jacks are for connecting the audio portion of input devices to the DTX-5000G.
Connect RCA style cables from these AUDIO IN jacks to the AUDIO OUT jacks on your input devices.
NOTE: These AUDIO IN jacks are designed for devices without digital outputs. If you have connected a device
via a digital jack (OPT/COAX), you do not need to also connect audio cables to these AUDIO IN jacks, as audio
signals are passed through the digital cables.
10. AUDIO OUT (2) – These AUDIO OUT jacks are for connecting the DTX-5000G to power amplifiers, pre-amps,
receivers or recording devices. It is important to note a difference between the two AUDIO OUT jacks:
• AUDIO OUT 1 is designed for connection directly to a power amplifier. Output signals from AUDIO OUT 1 are
“hotter” than signals from AUDIO OUT 2. This is so since power amplifiers require more signal input.
NOTE: Connecting the DTX-5000G to a pre-amp or receiver from this AUDIO OUT
jack may overdrive the pre-amp/receiver.
• AUDIO OUT 2 is designed for connection to pre-amps, receivers or recording devices. Output signals from
AUDIO OUT 2 are “less hot” than signals from AUDIO OUT 1. This is so since pre-amps/receivers require less
signal input.
NOTE: Connecting the DTX-5000G to a power amplifier from this AUDIO OUT jack will not utilize the power
amplifiers total output.

Customizing Digital Echo settings
When using Digital Echo, you can customize the effect by adjusting the ECHO, REPEAT and DELAY
controls. REPEAT adjusts the interval repetition of the Echo effect. As more Repeat is applied, more
Echo intervals will be heard when using it and vice versa. DELAY adjusts length of each interval. As more
Delay is applied, there will be more “space” between the starting and ending point of each Echo.

If you will be connecting your DTX-5000G to a TV monitor you should use an RCA video cable. On the back of the DTX-5000G, locate
the RCA connector jack labeled VIDEO OUT (there are three). Please note that while all three VIDEO OUTPUT jacks will output decoded video graphics, only VIDEO 2 and VIDEO 3 outputs will contain the on-screen functions display.
Do not use the VIDEO 1 output unless you are using another TV as the monitor for the singer, as this output
bypasses the on-screen functions display to prevent singer distraction.
Connect either end of an RCA video cable to the desired VIDEO OUT jack and connect the other end to the VIDEO INPUT jack on your
TV monitor.
Connecting a Player to the DTX-5000G
For players with a Digital output (required if CD+G graphics are to be decoded and displayed):
(a)
Determine the type of digital cable that you will be
using. We have included an optical cable that can
be used if your player has an optical output. If your
player has a coaxial output, you should use a
standard RCA video cable.
(b)
1. If you will be using an optical cable, please switch
the OPT/COAX switch on the rear of the unit to
unit to its OPT position.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Digital Echo:
Digital echo is a synthetically processed sound effect that mimics natural echo. Echo in general
is the “bouncing” of waves back and forth between 2 surfaces. This effect gives a spacious or
ambient feeling that works great with vocals.
Repeat:
Repeat is facet of the echo process. Repeat refers to the frequency of echoes within a
period of time.
Delay:
Delay is also a facet of the echo process. Delay refers to the amount of time that exists
between echoes.
Vocal Cancel:
Vocal Cancel is a feature that removes vocals from multiplex CD tracks. To be multiplexed,
a disc must have the vocals coded to the right channel and the music coded to the left
channel. When you select Vocal Cancel, the unit will remove the right channel (vocals) and
split the left channel (music) to both sides.
Vocal Partner:
Vocal Partner is a feature that removes vocals from multiplex CD tracks much in the same way
as Vocal Cancel, but with an added “auto-pilot” function. The main difference is that Vocal
Partner will only remove vocals as long as there is activity going through the microphone
(singing). When you stop singing, the vocals automatically return.
Vocal Reducer:
Vocal Reducer is a feature that removes vocals from standard non-multiplex CD tracks.
To do this, the unit compares the audio on the left and right channels, and cancels out any
signals that appear on both. Most currently recorded CD’s contain the vocal layer on
both sides, however some may not, rendering this feature unusable for that CD.
CD+G:
A CD+G is a specially formatted disc that has an additional line of sub-code on the CD that is
responsible for the lyrics that play on video screen for Karaoke systems. CD+G stands for
Compact Disc + Graphics.
Sub-Code:
Sub-code is specially coded area of data used by CD+G manufacturers to produce lyrics for
Karaoke video output.
Multiplex (MPX):
Multiplex is a type of Karaoke software that has specially formatted left and right channels to
make multiplex features available. To be formatted for multiplex use, a disc must have the
vocals coded to the right channel and the music to the left channel. When you select a
multiplex mode, the unit will remove the right channel (vocals) and split the left channel (music)
to both sides.
Rack Mountable:
Rack Mountable refers to the ability to place unit into professional or travel rack cases.
Such cases are great for building complete systems and protect them during transportation.
The standard rack size for MOST cases is 19”.
VCD:
VCD is a disc formatted in MPEG-1. These discs are good candidates for Karaoke use as they
have an audio and a video layer to them. VCD stands for Video Compact Disc.
A/V:
A/V is an abbreviation for Audio/Visual.
