GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION
•
If this product is equipped with a polarized alternating
current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than
the other), it will fit into the outlet only one way. This
is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug
fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
•
If this product is equipped with a three-wire
grounding type plug, a plug having a third (grounding)
pin, it will only fit into a grounding type power outlet.
This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the
plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding type plug.
POWER-CORD PROTECTION - Power-supply cords
should be routed so that they are not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed upon or
against them, paying particular attention to cords at
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the product.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING — If an outside
antenna or cable system is connected to the product,
be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so
as to provide some protection against voltage surges
and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information
with regard to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure
A.
LIGHTNING — For added protection for this product
during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from
the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product
due to lightning and power-line surges.
POWER LINES — An outside antenna system should
not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines
or other electric light or power circuits, or where it
can fall into such power lines or circuits. When
installing an outside antenna system, extreme care
should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
OVERLOADING — Do not overload wall outlets,
extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles
as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY - Never push objects of
any kind into this product through openings as they
may touch dangerous voltage points or short-out
parts that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
SERVICING — Do not attempt to service this product
yourself as opening or removing covers may expose
you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all
servicing to qualified service personnel.
DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE - Unplug this product
from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
•
When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged.
•
If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into
the product.
•
If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
•
If the product does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the operating instructions as an
improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the product to its
normal operation.
•
If the product has been dropped or damaged in any
way.
•
When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance — this indicates a need for service.
REPLACEMENT PARTS -- W hen replacement parts
are required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or
have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric
shock, or other hazards.
SAFETY CHECK - Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this product, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the product
is in proper operating condition.

or other playing music source. Remember, this is a momentary function. When you remove your finger from
the pitch button, the BPM’s will automatically return to PITCH SLIDERS (5) pitch value. Holding down this button will give a maximum of -100% pitch. Use this function to slow to another playing music source. Be sure
to notice that this function is a momentary pitch adjustment, for a more precise adjustment use the PITCH
SLIDER (5) to match the BPM’s with another playing music source. Note: 100% Pitch Adjustment works with
regular CDs only, not Mp3 CDs.
11. JOG WHEEL (TOUCH SENSITIVE) - This wheel has three functions;
A. The jog wheel will act as a frame search control when the CD is in pause or cue mode, allowing you to set a cue point.
B. The wheel also works as a pitch bend during Playback. Turning the wheel clockwise will increase the pitch percentage up to 100%, and turning the wheel in the counter-clockwise direction will decrease the pitch percentage down to -100%. The pitch bend will be determined on how long you turn the jog wheel continuously.

21. SOURCE SELECTOR SWITCH - These switches are used to select the input source assigned to
each channel. Each channel may only be assigned one input source at a time. NOTE: When using
deck output mode, switching to deck will route the deck source to the mix.
22. AUX INPUT - This Aux input is for the use of a Mp3 player. Input volume will be controlled by
the channel two fader.
23. CHANNEL GAIN CONTROL - This adjustment is used to adjust an audio source signal input gain
for a channel. Never use the gain control to adjust output volume. Setting the gain level properly will
ensure a clean output signal. To properly set the gain level controls:
1. Be sure the MASTER VOLUME CONTROL (32) is set to level 4.
2. Set the CHANNEL FADER (26) to level 8.
3. Begin playback on an audio source connected to the channel you are adjusting.
4. Use the Gain Control (23) to adjust an average output volume of +4 dB. 5. Repeat this step for all channels.
24. EQUALIZER - All of the channels include a three-band signal EQ. These controls are used to
increase or decrease the LOW’s, MID’s, and HI’s of the output signal.
TREBLE CONTROL - This knob is used to adjust the treble levels of a channel allowing for a maximum treble gain of +12dB or maximum decrease of -30dB. Turning the knob in a counter-
clockwise direction will decrease the amount of treble applied to a channel signal, turning the knob in a clockwise direction will increase the amount of treble applied to a channel signal.
MIDRANGE CONTROL - This knob is used to adjust the midrange levels of a channel allowing ©American

connected.
Example: Be sure the Fader “Q” Start feature is activated on both channels. Slide the cross
fader to the channel one position (full left) and begin playback on CD drive one. Slide the crossfader to the channel two position (far right). This will immediately trigger the play func
tion on CD drive two and return CD drive one to cue mode. To return to normal fader opera-
tion turn the Fader “Q” Start ON/OFF SWITCH to the OFF position.
29. CROSSFADER - This fader is used to blend the output signals of channels one and two together.
When the fader is in the full left position (channel 1), the output signal of channel one will be controlled
by the master volume level. The same fundamentals will apply for channel two. Sliding the fader from
one position to another will vary the output signals of channels one and two respectively. When the
crossfader is set in the center position, the output signals of both the channels one and channels two
will be even.
30.CUE MIX - This knob is used send a channels incoming signal to the headphones. Turn the knob
counter-clockwise to monitor Channel 1, and clockwise to monitor Channel 2. The cue level is adjusted
by the CUE LEVEL VOLUME KNOB (31). Be sure the cue level is set to minimum before putting a pair

SLIDER'S (5) operating range at any time. To change the operating range
be sure the pitch function is turned on, see figure 24. The pitch percentage can be changed between +/-4%, +/-8%, +/-16%, & 100%. 4% will
allow the least amount of pitch manipulation and 100% will allow the
most amount of pitch manipulation. To adjust the different ranges, press
the PITCH ON/OFF BUTTON (6) and tap on the PITCH RANGE BUTTON
(7) until your desired value is reached, see figure 26. Note: 100% Pitch
Adjustment works with CDs only, not Mp3 CDs.
Figure 26
2. PITCH BENDING:
Unlike the PITCH SLIDER (5) adjustment this function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks speed
during playback. There are two ways to operate this function with the (-) & (+) PITCH BEND BUTTONS (10) or
with the JOG WHEEL (11). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/- 100%. The pitch bend function
will work in conjunction with the PITCH SLIDER (5) pitch setting. For example, if the PITCH SLIDER (5) is set to
a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue to the maximum of +/- 100%.
PITCH BEND BUTTONS (10):
The (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (10) will increase track playback speed and the (-) PITCH BEND BUTTON (10)
will decrease track playback speed. The extent to which the speed changes is proportionate to the amount of
time the button is pressed. For example, if the (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (10) is held down continuously as in
figure 28, the disc speed will increases and will continue to increase until it reaches a maximum of 16% speed
gain. When you release the (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (10) the disc speed will automati ally return to it’s previous set speed. Note: 100% Pitch Adjustment works with CDs only, not Mp3 CDs.
c
Holding down or tapping on the (-)
PITCH BEND BUTTON (10) will provide
a slow down in the playback pitch.

Holding down or tapping on the (+)
PITCH BEND BUTTON (10) will provide a
speed bump in the playback pitch.

PITCH ADJUSTMENTS
3. JOG WHEEL (11):
The JOG WHEEL will temporarily bend the pitch if a track is in playback mode.
Rotating the wheel in a clockwise direction will increase your track pitch and
rotating the wheel in a counter-clockwise direction will slow your track pitch.
The speed you rotate the JOG WHEEL will determine pitch bend percentage
(%). For example, if the JOG WHEEL is continuously turned in a counterclockwise direction the playback speed will steadily decrease and will continue to decrease until playback reaches a maximum of -100% and playback
stops entirely. When you stop turning the JOG WHEEL the disc speed will
automatically return to it’s previous set speed.

LOCK MODE
In this mode you are able to lock the player functions of the Encore 2000 so that there are no accidental mistakes. The mixer functions will not be locked so that adjustments can be made to the audio levels. To lock
the player functions please follow the directions below.
1. To lock the Encore 2000 player press the RELAY BUTTON (27) for at least 3 secs. When the Encore 2000
is locked the RELAY BUTTON (27) and the LOCK INDICATOR (53) will flash.
2. To unlock the Encore 2000 press the RELAY BUTTON (27) for at least 3 secs.
NOTE RELAY MODE: Activate RELAY MODE first, then "LOCK" the Encore 2000.
RELAY PLAYBACK
This feature is a kind of “auto pilot”. When you are using the Encore 2000 system, you can have one player
begin playback when the other ends. You can RELAY single tracks, the entire disc, or a combination of the two.
This feature is sometimes referred to as Flip-Flop playback.
To RELAY single tracks:
1) By default the two players are set to playback in single mode, SINGLE (61) will be indicated in the LCD (20).
2) Set the mixer's crossfader to the center position, and press the RELAY BUTTON (27).
3) Load your two players with audio discs.
4) After they have both cued, press the PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON (13) on one player to begin playback.
5) After the first player’s single track has ended the second player’s track will immediately begin playback.
6) RELAY (FLIP-FLOP™) will continue until you stop it or power is interrupted.
To RELAY entire CDs:
Be sure your players are both in continuous play mode, make sure SINGLE MODE (61) does not appear in the
LCDs (20) of both players. Follow all directions for single track relay above. When one player’s disc ends the
other player will immediately begin playback.
Note: You may combine relay single and continuously playback modes by selecting either single or continuous
playback on your units. In RELAY mode the decks are set single play mode by default.
Make sure that neither deck has REPEAT mode activated during RELAY mode. REPEAT mode has priority over
RELAY mode.

CROSSFADER REPLACEMENT
The crossfader is “Hot Swapable” which means it may be replaced at any time, even when power is
applied. Only replace with American Audio Part Feather Fader Plus. Replacing with any other model
fader may seriously damage your mixer. Please, always use insulated tools.
Replacing the Crossfader:
1. 2. 3. 4.
5. Using a Phillips screw driver, unscrew the six stainless steel retainer screws that hold the mixer face plate in place.
Gently remove the crossfader knob. Lift and remove the mixer face plate to access the cross
fader. Carefully pull the crossfader up from its seated position.
After removing the crossfader, disconnect the ribbon cable that attaches the crossfader to the PC board. Grasp the crossfader by its base and pull the ribbon cable by its connector not the actual cables. The connector is designed to only fit one way, so don’t worry about the connec-
tors orientation.
Unscrew the ground cable from the crossfader plate. Now unscrew the crossfader from the crossfader plate and replace with the new crossfader. Connect the ground cable to the cross
fader plate.
Connect the new crossfader to the ribbon cable and replace in reverse order.
