• Make sure that the power switch (1) is set to OFF. Before connecting other devices to the mixer, all units have to be
switched off and the Master Control (17) set to min.
• Make sure that the available voltage is not higher than stated on the voltage selector (36) before connecting to power.
• In order to obtain the highest sound quality, only use high quality American DJ®, Ameri-Cable™ cables for connecting
devices. Make sure that the cables are properly fixed.
• Connect your amplifier to the MASTER OUTPUT jacks (31). Make sure that the channels are set properly (L & R). For
mono and bridged operation, please use the BALANCED OUTPUT XLR jacks (34) and set the STEREO/MONO switch
(16) to MONO.
• Via the BOOTH OUT jacks (33), you can either connect monitor active speakers for the DJ booth, an additional
amplifier or a second zone.
• For recording, connect your tape recorder or cassette deck to the REC OUT jacks (32). The REC OUT level will not be
influenced by the master fader (17). You can set the output level with the channel faders (4).
• The XDM-352 features two microphone inputs. The Nuetrik™ connector jack (20) on the front panel is for 1/4 inch
(6.3mm) jack plugs and XLR-plugs. With the TALKOVER switch (22), you can attenuate all other signals without affecting
the microphone volume. You can switch Mic 1 Jack (20) off by setting the TALKOVER SWITCH to MICRO OFF. The 1/4
inch (6.3mm) MIC 2 jack (25) is on the rear panel. You can connect your second microphone here. Adjust the microphone

5 SWITCH to LINE 5.
• You can connect 2 turntables using the PHONO 1 jacks (27) and PHONO 2 jacks (28) on the rear panel. You can only
control the turntables signal after you switched the PHONO / LINE switches (3) to PHONO. The signal is then controlled
via the CH-1 and CH-2 faders (4). If you wish to connect a third turntable, switch the LINE 3 / PHONO 3 SELECTOR (37)
on the rear panel to PHONO 3. You can only control the turntable signal after switching the PHONO 3-LINE 3 / LINE 4 /
SWITCH (3) to PHONO 3. The signal is then controlled via the CHANNEL 3 FADER (4).
