Congratulations on your decision
to purchase the GTP-602 tuner/
preamplifier. Your new ADCOM component was designed to deliver incredible sound and years of reliable performance. Audition the GTP-602 paired
with an ADCOM power amp and DVD
player and you will experience what
high performance is all about. To realize the full potential of your GTP-602,
and before making any connections
to it, please read these operating and
installation instructions thoroughly.
Key Features
• RDS tuner
• Phono input stage
• RS 232 control
• Torriodial power transformer
Unpacking the GTP-602
Before your new ADCOM tuner-preamplifier left our factory, it was carefully
inspected for physical imperfections
and tested for all electrical parameters
as a routine part of ADCOM’s systematic quality control. This, along with
full operational and mechanical testing, should ensure a product flawless
in both appearance and performance.
After you have unpacked the GTP602, inspect it for physical damage.
Save the shipping carton and all packing material as they are intended to
reduce the possibility of transportation damage should the preamplifier
ever need to be shipped again. In the
unlikely event damage has occurred,
notify your dealer immediately and
request the name of the carrier so a
written claim to cover shipping damages can be initiated. The right to a
claim against a public carrier can be
forfeited if the carrier is not notified
promptly in writing and if the shipping
carton and packing materials are not
available for inspection by the carrier.
Save all packing materials until the
claim has been settled.
Placing the GTP-602
Although the GTP-602 does not generate much heat, it is good practice
to provide adequate ventilation for
the unit. Therefore, the GTP-602
should be kept away from external
sources of heat such as radiators and
hot-air ducts.
We recommend that you exercise care
when placing components on top of the
GTP-602. If you are placing a heat producing component (such as an amplifier) on top of or below the GTP-602, it
is recommended that you allow at least
three (3) inches vertical spacing for
proper airflow.
We also recommend that you leave five
(5) inches of space behind the unit for
additional airflow and to allow space
for interconnects to hang freely.
5"
e
ranc
clea
If you observe these recommendations, the GTP-602 will perform reliably
in any reasonable environment. You
should also pay attention to such normal considerations as protection from
excessive dust and moisture.
The optimal performance of your new
GTP-602 will ultimately depend on the
care with which you make the connections between the amplifier, preamplifier and loudspeakers. All input and
output signal connections should be
made only with high quality, low-loss,
low capacitance cables. For recommendations of the type and quality of
interconnections that are best for your
applications, consult with your ADCOM
retailer.
Safety Information
There are no user serviceable parts
inside. Refer all servicing to qualified
service personnel.
The unit must be connected to a power
supply only of the type and voltage
specified on the rear panel. Connect
the component to the power outlet only
with the supplied power supply cable or
an exact equivalent. Do not modify the
supplied cable. Do not defeat grounding
and/or polarization provisions. The
cable should be connected to a 3-pin
polarized wall outlet, matching the
wide blade of the plug to the wide slot
of the receptacle. Do not use extension
cords. Do not route the power cord
where it will be crushed, pinched,
bent, exposed to heat, or damaged in
any way. Pay particular attention to
the power cord at the plug and where
it exits the back of the unit. The power
cord should be unplugged from the wall
outlet if the unit is to be left unused
for a long period of time. Immediately
stop using the component and have
it inspected and/or serviced by a
qualified service agency if:
• the power supply cord or plug has
been damaged;
• objects have fallen or liquid has
been spilled into the unit;
• the unit has been exposed to rain;
• the unit shows signs of improper
operation; or
• the unit has been dropped or
damaged in any way.

ANALOG AUDIO inputs or outputs
Like the front panel, the GTP-602’s
rear panel is carefully arranged to
make hookup, configuration, and use
as simple as possible. However, the
GTP-602’s capabilities take some study
to use most effectively. We strongly
suggest that you read this section of
the manual before beginning to hook
up your system. You will save yourself
much time and effort if you carefully
think out what you expect from your
system: consider the components you
will use, where they’ll be placed,
and how you will want them to work
together. The diagrams and notes in
this section will probably answer most
of your questions about interfacing
the GTP-602 with other components in
your system.
Note that the GTP-602’s RCA-style
jacks have color-coded centers to
make connections easier. Use this key
to help route cables properly:

WHITE centers = LEFT CHANNEL
ANALOG AUDIO inputs or outputs
[7] Antenna Connections
AM Antenna: An AM loop antenna is
supplied with the GTP-602 and is
required for AM reception. Open the
clip terminal lever and insert the
wire from the antenna. Closing the
lever will lock the wire in place. Test
various positions for the antenna, but
always ensure the loop is placed vertically for best reception. Placing the
antenna close to large metal items
such as metal shelves or radiators may
interfere with reception.
NOTE: When reception is not satisfactory using the supplied AM loop
antenna alone, connection of an
external antenna is recommended.
The antenna cable to the loop antenna must not exceed three meters.
[17] AC Power Input
FM Antenna: A ribbon wire FM antenna is included and should be connected to the FM connector at the rear of
the unit using the adapter supplied.
The ribbon aerial should be mounted
on a vertical surface and placed so
that it forms a ‘T’.
Experiment with placement of the
antenna to find the position that
gives the best signal strength and
lowest background noise. An inadequate FM signal normally results in
high levels of hiss, especially in stereo, and interference from external
electrical sources. In areas of poor
FM reception, the tuner section’s performance can be improved by using
an externally mounted FM antenna. A
qualified aerial installer will be able
to advise and fit a recommended aerial for your reception conditions.
[8] CD Analog Inputs
Input for CD player (analog audio signal) or other line-level signal source.
Use a twin RCA-to-RCA lead to connect the CD player’s left and right
‘Audio Outputs’ to this input.
[9] Auxiliary Analog Inputs
Input for any line-level signal source.
Use a twin RCA-to-RCA lead to connect the CD player’s left and right
‘Audio Outputs’ to this input.
[10] Tape Inputs/Outputs
Connections for analog recording and
playback to an audio tape recorder
of any type, such as a cassette, reelreel, DAT, MD or CD-R. Using twin
RCA-to-RCA leads, connect to the
left and right ‘Audio Output’ of the
tape machine to the TAPE IN connectors for playback. Connect the left
and right ‘Audio Input’ of the tape
machine to the TAPE OUT connectors
for recording.
[13] 12V DC Trigger
To facilitate remote turn-on and
turn-off of other components (power
amplifiers, for example), this 3.5mm
mini-jack provides a constant signal
(12 volts DC) whenever the GTP-602
is fully powered. When the GTP-602 is
turned off (via the front panel switch)
or placed in standby mode (via the
[16] Power Switch
The rear panel power switch should
be turned off if the system will not be
in use for an extended period of time.
When the power switch is in the off
position the GTP-602 is not using any
power from the AC wall circuit. This
switch must be on for the GTP-602 to
operate in the “stand-by” mode.
[17] AC Power Cord
After you have completed all connections to the amplifier, plug the AC
line cord into a “live” wall socket.
Use only the supplied power cord or
equivalent.
[11] Phono Inputs
Input for a phono (record) player
(analog audio signal) Use a twin RCAto-RCA lead to connect the phonoplayer’s left and right ‘audio outputs’
to this input.
[12] IR Input
The IR input allows hook up of an
external IR sensor that sends IR information to the microprocessor in the
GTP-602. This feature can be very useful if the GTP-602 is placed behind a
non transparent door or is used with an
after market remote control system.

Troubleshooting
Use the troubleshooting notes above to solve common
situations that don’t require professional attention. If the
steps stated in possible solution do not resolve your problem, then please contact your ADCOM dealer or call the
ADCOM customer service department. Any problems not
covered here should be brought to the attention of your
ADCOM dealer or ADCOM customer service department.
A special note on “hum:” When there is a low-volume
“hum” audible throughout your speakers, even with the
main volume turned all the way down, you have a common phenomenon known as a “ground loop.” A ground loop
is basically a difference in ground voltages between two
or more components which are connected electrically and
which creates multiple current paths where there must only
be one. This difference in potentials creates a 60Hz lowlevel sound (approximately a low A), that seems to “hum.”
It can be caused by adding new components to your system,
but that does not imply there is anything electrically wrong
with any new component. With the advent of audio/video
and home theater systems, the problem has become commonplace. Generally, the cause is the Cable-TV incoming
signal line. This new incoming line may add an additional
ground at a different potential to the AC line ground of
your other equipment (refer to note I and 2, to troubleshoot a hum problem).
Note 1: Cable TV systems can sometimes contribute to
ground loop problems which cause “hum.” To determine
if your cable system is the contributing factor, disconnect
the Cable-TV incoming signal line (round, 75Ω) at the wall,
or the first component the cable is connected to (i.e. the
cable box, or VCR). If the hum is no longer present, you
must insert a “75Ω ground loop isolator” before reconnecting the line. You should check with your ADCOM dealer to
obtain one. If the “75Ω ground loop isolator” works only
partially or not at all, then please read note 2 to complete
the troubleshooting procedure.
Note 2: Make sure that the power amplifier is at least 6”
from processor or other equipment using microprocessors.
Usually putting another component between them is sufficient to minimize the hum. If this does not reduce the
hum, turn the system off and disconnect all Inputs from
the amplifier. If the hum still persists, then your dealer or
service center must examine the unit/system. If the hum
disappears, try another set of RCA cables. Connect one RCA
cable at a time to see if one specific cable is responsible.
If any or all cables cause the hum to appear, then the unit
should be evaluated for proper operation by your dealer or
authorized service center. Please see our website or call us
for a list of authorized service centers in your area.
Servicing
ADCOM has a technical service department to answer
questions pertinent to the installation and operation of your
unit. In the event of difficulty, please contact us for prompt
advice. If your problem cannot be resolved through our
combined efforts, we may refer you to an authorized repair
agency, or authorize return of the unit to our factory. To aid
us in directing you to a convenient service center, it would
be helpful if you indicate which major city is accessible to
your home.
Troubleshooting Tip
Your GTP-602’s circuitry is built around advanced microprocessors. The GTP-602 may exhibit
occasional anomalies arising from AC line surges, etc. If you experience unexpected behavior,
or if the GTP-602 “locks up” and does not respond to control input, reset it by turning the rear
panel power switch off. (Do not use the remote control’s “power” button). Wait 10 seconds and
then turn the GTP-602 on using the rear panel power switch.
