Operating the system

Because this is a frequency agile system, the receiver and transmitter must both be on
the same Receive/Transmit frequency. Follow the instructions #5, 16, 24 and 27 carefully.
Make sure both the receiver and the transmitter are on the same channel.

After installing new batteries, mount the receiver to your video camera with the supplied
shoe-mount or hook and loop fastener. Connect the output cable to the receiver and to the
microphone input on the video camera. Switch the 105UPR to “ON” and the power indicator (7) should come on RED. If it doesn’t, check the batteries. When the 105UPR receives
a signal from the transmitter the LED indicator will change to GREEN. If it does not, make
sure both the receiver and the transmitter are on matching Receive/Transmit frequencies.

Switch the transmitter to “ON” and the power indicator should come on. If it does not, check
the batteries. Have someone speak into the microphone as you monitor the sound through
the receiver’s phone output. If the sound is distorted, lower the MIC level on the transmitter.
If there is not enough volume, raise the MIC input level on the transmitter.
15HT Handheld Microphone/Transmitter
Switch the transmitter to “ON” and the power indicator should come on. If it does not, check
the batteries. Have someone speak into the microphone as you monitor the sound through
the receiver’s phone output. If the sound is distorted, lower the MIC level on the transmitter.
If there is not enough volume, raise the MIC input level on the transmitter.

Plug in the supplied microphone and clip it to your subject. The microphone should be
placed 4-12 inches from your subject’s mouth. Clip the transmitter to a belt using the
supplied belt-clip or place it in a pocket. Switch the 15BT to “ON” and the power indicator should come on. If it doesn’t, check the batteries. Have someone speak into the
microphone as you monitor the sound through the receiver’s phone output. If the sound is
distorted, lower the MIC level on the transmitter. If there is not enough volume, raise the
MIC input level on the transmitter.

phone. Using the supplied tool, turn the dial clockwise to increase, or counterclockwise to decrease the microphone’s audio output level.
(28) Frequency Selection
Frequency adjustment is accomplished by setting the controls inside the bat-
tery compartment. With the frequency GROUP dial on the left (column A on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency groups (numbered 0-9). With the frequency CHANNEL dial on the right (column B on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency channels (numbered 0-9). There are actually 92 possible selections.
Thank you for purchasing Azden’s 105 wireless microphone system. Depending on which
system your ordered, this package will contain one or more of the following components:
the 105UPR receiver, the 15BT body-pack receiver with EX-503L lavalier microphone, the
15XT Plug-in transmitter and/or the 15HT handheld microphone/transmitter. This equipment is designed primarily for video cameras but can be used with most electronic components having a microphone level input. The 105UPR allows you to “receive” audio from
one transmitter at a time.
RECEIVER (105UPR)
(1) Remove the battery compartment lid by sliding it down.
(2) Insert two fresh Alkaline “AA” batteries into the compartment. Make sure the battery
polarity is correct as marked inside the battery compartment.
(3) POWER
Switches the receiver “ON” and “OFF”
(4) MIC OUT jack
The 105UPR is supplied with a mini-to-mini cable.
For mini jack microphone inputs: Use the supplied mini-to-mini cable. Plug one end of the cable into the receiver and the other end of the cable into the microphone input on the video camera.
For 3-pin XLR microphone inputs: Use the optional mini-to XLR cable (MX-1). Plug the mini-plug end of the cable into the receiver (use the screw-down sleeve to secure it to the receiver) and plug the XLR end of the cable into the microphone input of the video camera.
(5) Frequency Selection
Frequency adjustment is accomplished by setting the controls inside the bat-
tery compartment. With the frequency GROUP dial on the left (column A on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency groups (numbered 0-9). With the frequency CHANNEL dial on the right (column B on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency channels (numbered 0-9). There are actually 92 possible selections.
(6) Phone Jack
Plug the earphone into this jack to monitor the sound. The jack is wired to work with either a mono or stereo headphone (you will hear mono in both ears when using a stereo headphone).
(7) LED indicator
This LED turns RED when the receive is turned “ON” and GREEN when receiving a signal from the transmitter.
(8) Phone Output Adjustment
Using the supplied tool, turn the screw clockwise to increase and counterclock-
wise to decrease the audio level presented at the earphone monitor jack.
(9) Shoe-mount
Attach the 105UPR to the shoe-mount on the video camera by sliding it into place. Turn the thumb-wheel clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to remove.
(10) Antenna
For best reception the antenna should be pointed in an upward fashion. Use caution and do not force it in this position.
BODY-PACK TRANSMITTER (15BT/EX-503L)
(11) Remove the battery compartment lid by sliding it down.
(12) Insert two fresh Alkaline “AA” batteries into the compartment. Make sure the battery
polarity is correct as marked inside the battery compartment.
Inside the battery compartment you will also find #13 and #16
(13) MIC LEVEL Control
The MIC LEVEL control enables you to adjust the audio level of the micro
phone. Using the supplied tool, turn the dial clockwise to increase, or counterclockwise to decrease the microphone’s audio output level.
(16) Frequency Selection
Frequency adjustment is accomplished by setting the two controls inside the battery compartment. With the frequency GROUP dial on the left (col-
umn A on the included chart) you can select any of the 10 frequency groups (numbered 0-9). With the frequency CHANNEL dial on the right (column B on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency channels (numbered 0-9). There are actually 92 possible selections.
(14) POWER
This switches the transmitter “ON or “OFF”
(15) MIC Input Jack
Plug the supplied EX-503L microphone into the MIC jack and tightened the collar until it is snug (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN). In addition to the EX-503L, other lapel and/or headset microphones with 3.5mm plugs can also be used
with the 15BT.
(17) Audio Standby
The Audio Standby switch serves as a mute switch. In the STBY position the audio output from the 15BT is muted. In the ON position audio is transmitted.
(18) Belt-clip
Use this to attach the 15BT to a belt on the subject.
XLR PLUG-IN TRANSMITTER (15XT)
(19) Open the battery compartment lid and insert two fresh Alkaline “AA” batteries. Make
sure the battery polarity is correct as marked inside the battery compartment.
(20) POWER
Switches the transmitter “ON” or “OFF”
(21) AUDIO
Prior to first turning the 15XT “ON” it is best to set the AUDIO switch to “OFF”. When you are ready to begin transmitting, switch to “ON”. The “OFF” position acts as a “mute” that maintains the RF signal but turns off the audio.
(22) MIC Connector/Locking Ring
This 3-pin XLR connector is the microphone input. Any metal body low impedance microphone with a corresponding connector can be attached here. Once the microphone is plugged into the 15XT the locking ring should be rotated clockwise until snug. To remove the microphone, first rotate the locking ring counterclockwise and then, while pressing the XLR release, pull the microphone away from the 15XT.
(23) MIC LEVEL Control
The MIC LEVEL control enables you to adjust the audio level of the micro-
phone. Using the supplied tool, turn the dial clockwise to increase, or counterclockwise to decrease the microphone’s audio output level.
(24) Frequency Selection
Frequency adjustment is accomplished by setting the two controls inside the battery compartment. With the frequency GROUP dial on the left (col-
umn A on the included chart) you can select any of the 10 frequency groups (numbered 0-9). With the frequency CHANNEL dial on the right (column B on the included chart) you can select any of 10 frequency channels (numbered 0-9). There are actually 92 possible selections.
