Safety guidelines
Safety instructions
This product is designed and manufactured to meet strict
quality and safety standards. However, you should be aware of
the following installation and operation precautions:
1. Take heed of warnings and instructions
You should read all the safety and operating instructions
before operating this appliance. Retain this handbook for future
reference and adhere to all warnings in the handbook or on
the appliance.
2. Water and moisture
The presence of electricity near water can be dangerous. Do
not use the appliance near water – for example next to a
bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, in a wet basement or near a
swimming pool, etc..
3. Object or liquid entry
Take care that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into
the enclosure through any openings. Liquid filled objects such
as vases should not be placed on the equipment.
4. Ventilation
Do not place the equipment on a bed, sofa, rug or similar
soft surface, or in an enclosed bookcase or cabinet, since
ventilation may be impeded. We recommend a minimum
distance of 50mm (2 inches) around the sides and top of the
appliance to provide adequate ventilation.
5. Heat
Locate the appliance away from naked flames or heat
producing equipment such as radiators, stoves or other
appliances (including other amplifiers) that produce heat.
6. Climate
The appliance has been designed for use in moderate climates.
7. Racks and stands
Only use a rack or stand that is recommended for use with
audio equipment. If the equipment is on a portable rack it
should be moved with great care, to avoid overturning the
combination.
8. Cleaning
Unplug the unit from the mains supply before cleaning.
The case should normally only require a wipe with a soft, damp,
lint-free cloth. Do not use paint thinners or other chemical
solvents for cleaning.
We do not advise the use of furniture cleaning sprays or
polishes as they can cause indelible white marks if the unit is
subsequently wiped with a damp cloth.

9. Power sources
Only connect the appliance to a power supply of the type
described in the operating instructions or as marked on the
appliance.
10. 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 and plugs, and the
point where they exit from the appliance.
11. Grounding
Ensure that the grounding means of the appliance is not
defeated.
12. Power lines
Locate any outdoor antenna/aerial away from power lines.
13. Non-use periods
If the unit has a standby function, a small amount of current will
continue to flow into the equipment in this mode. Unplug the
power cord of the appliance from the outlet if left unused for
a long period of time.
14. Abnormal smell
If an abnormal smell or smoke is detected from the appliance,
turn the power off immediately and unplug the unit from the wall
outlet. Contact your dealer immediately.
15. Servicing
You should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in this handbook. All other servicing should be
referred to qualified service personnel.
16. Damage requiring service
The appliance should be serviced by qualified service personnel
when:
A. the power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged, or
B. objects have fallen, or liquid has spilled into the
appliance, or
C. the appliance has been exposed to rain, or
D. the appliance does not appear to operate normally or
exhibits a marked change in performance, or
E. the appliance has been dropped or the enclosure
damaged.
Safety compliance
This product has been designed to meet the EN60065
international electrical safety standard.
This handbook has been designed to give you all the
information you need to install, connect, set up and use the
Arcam CD72 or CD82 compact disc players. The CR-314
remote control handset supplied with this equipment is also
described, as it applies to operating the CD players.
Safety
Safety guidelines are set out on the inside front cover of this
handbook.
Many of these items are common sense precautions, but for
your own safety, and to ensure that you do not damage the unit,
we strongly recommend that you read them.
Models covered
This handbook covers two CD players:
CD72
CD82
These use the same basic chassis and mechanics and the
controls are identical. They differ in the audio path electronics
used.
These CD players have been designed to be upgradeable
to a higher specification player in the Arcam range. For
example, the CD72 can be upgraded to CD82; the CD82 can
be upgraded to CD92. Your Arcam dealer can give you more
information on this upgrade path.

CD72 player
This has a Delta-Sigma DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) with
24-bit filtering.
CD82 player
The CD82 uses two 24-bit 192kHz capable Wolfson DACs in
a dual-mode configuration with one DAC chip used for the left
channel and one DAC chip used for the right channel.
The player uses high quality Burr Brown op-amps in the output
stage and the DAC module includes a high stability Class 1
crystal oscillator.

Installation
Positioning the unit
Remote input connection
Always place the CD player on a level, firm surface. Placing
your player on a set of dedicated sorbothane isolation feet
will isolate the unit from its surroundings as well as absorbing
the vibrations created within the player itself. You will
generally hear some sonic improvements, which makes this
an extremely cost-effective upgrade. Your Arcam dealer can
demonstrate this to ou.
Connecting to a power supply
It is not necessary to make any connection to this socket in
normal use. This connection is for ease of installation to multiroom remote control systems and is suitable for modulated
IR commands. Contact your multi-room installer for more
information.
Wrong plug?
Connecting to other equipment
Interconnect cables
Interconnecting cables are not supplied with this CD player. We
recommend high quality cables as inferior quality cables will
degrade the sound quality of your system. Please contact your
Arcam dealer for details of suitable cables.
Check that the plug supplied with the unit fits your supply and
that your mains supply voltage agrees with the voltage setting
(120V or 230V) indicated on the rear panel of the unit.
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different, consult
your Arcam dealer or Arcam Customer Support on +44
(0)1223 203203.
Mains lead
Audio outputs
Connect these to your amplifier’s CD or any other line-level
input using suitable high quality interconnect cables. Ensure
that the left and right audio outputs from the CD player are
connected to the same left and right inputs on your amplifier.
CD82 only: The second set of sockets can be used to
connect to a second amplifier set up for multi-room use.
The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug
already fitted to the lead. If for any reason the plug needs to
be removed, it must be disposed of immediately and securely,
as it is a potential shock hazard when inserted into the mains
socket. Should you require a new mains lead, contact your
Arcam dealer.
Plugging in
Coaxial digital output
Use this socket if you are using a separate digital to analogue
converter (DAC) or digital recorder. Connect to the DAC or
recorder’s digital input using a suitable 75Ω screened cable.
CAUTION: Never connect the digital output socket to a
conventional audio input.
Push the plug (IEC line socket) of the power cable supplied with
the unit into the socket (POWER INLET) in the back of the unit.
Make sure it is pushed in firmly.
Put the plug on the other end of the cable into your power
supply socket and switch the socket on.
Optical digital output
Use this socket if you are using a separate DAC or digital
recorder with an optical connection. Connect using a suitable
optical cable.

Continual improvement policy
Arcam has a policy of continual improvement for its products.
This means that designs and specifications are subject to
change without notice.
Radio interference
The CD72 and CD82 players are digital audio devices which
have been designed to very high standards of electromagnetic
compatibility.
Both CD players and DACs generate, and can radiate RF (radio
frequency) energy. In some cases this can cause interference
with FM and AM radio reception. If this is the case, keep the CD
player and its connecting cables as far from the tuner and its
aerials as possible. Connecting the CD player and the tuner to
different mains sockets can also help to reduce interference.
EC COUNTRIES -– These products have been designed to
comply with directive 89/336/EEC.
USA – These products comply with FCC requirements.
Laser radiation
If an Arcam CD player is operated whilst the outer casing is
removed, invisible laser radiation could cause eye damage.
