First Things First
Before installing your wireless microphone, there are a
few things you should do and know:
• Do not dismantle the receiver on your own.
For needed repairs, contact your dealer
• Make sure your local power outlet supplies the
correct voltage for the AC adapter. Only use the
adapters supplied with the system.
Care and Cleaning
Make sure the power is disconnected before cleaning
the receiver unit. Use a soft cloth to clean the receiver
and microphones. DO NOT use chemicals or any
cleaning agents to clean the receiver or microphones.
• Turn off your audio system during set-up and turn
down volume.
• Fully charge your batteries before using the system.
• If you will not be using the system for an extended
period of time, disconnect all power sources. Remove
the batteries from microphones.
• Plug the power adapter cord jack into the matching
power socket on the rear of the receiver. Make sure the
power switch is OFF “0” and all four volume controls
are turned down to the negative position before
beginning any installation.

How to IR Sync
• Press the On/Mute button once on the microphone
to sync.
• Make sure microphone is On.
• Select a desired channel on the receiver.

This will make the channel blink on the LCD
display panel.
Your microphone and receiver are now fully sync’ed.
• Position the bottom of the desired microphone so
it faces the IR Sync sensor.
Charging the Microphones
Inserting the rechargeable microphone batteries:

into place. Snap the battery compartment gate shut.
Screw the battery housing cover back on.
• Grip the upper portion of the microphone with one
hand and twist the lower portion (battery housing
cover) counter-clockwise until it fully unscrews. Slide
it off and place it to the side. The battery compartment gate is now visible. With your thumb and
forefinger, go over the curved grips, pull the gate open
and out. It should pivot on its hinge at the lower end.
• Place two AA Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries into
the battery compartment spaces provided. Press the
Using the charging station:
• Plug the AC power adapter cord jack into the
matching power socket on the rear of the charging
station. Plug the AC adapter into an AC outlet.
