A high-performance AM loop antenna provided with this unit is sufficient for good reception in most areas.

To stand the loop antenna on a surface, insert the claw into the slot.

Connect the loop antenna’s wires to the AM antenna terminals as shown.

1 2

B

AM Outdoor Antenna

If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver sufficient reception (because you are too far from the transmitter or in a concrete building, etc.), it may be necessary to use an outdoor AM antenna.

Strip one end of a 5-m or longer, insulated wire and connect it to the terminal as shown.

The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or if indoors, near a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.

Note:

Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect the AM loop antenna.

Place the antenna on a shelf, for example, or hang it on a window frame, etc., in the direction which gives the best reception, as far away as possible from the entire system, speaker cords and the power cord to prevent unwanted noise.

If there is no room for the AM loop antenna, you may mount it on the wall using screws (not supplied).

C

FM Indoor Antenna

Connect the lead-type FM antenna to the FM 75

Ω socket, extend the lead and attach it to a window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like, where reception is best.

A

B

D

FM Outdoor Antenna

In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor FM antenna.

Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.

E

DAB Indoor Antenna

Connect the T-type DAB antenna to the DAB socket, extend the lead vertically and attach it to a window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like, where reception is best.

F

DAB Outdoor Antenna

In an area where DAB signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor DAB antenna. There are two main types available.

Dipole:

For use in marginal signal areas. This type of antenna is omnidirectional and should increase the strength of all DAB stations being received.

Multi-element antenna:

Also for use in marginal or poor signal areas. This type of antenna is directional and has high gain.

This antenna needs to be pointed at the transmitter you want to listen to.

Multi-element

Dipole

< You can check the antenna adjustment or positioning for the best reception by viewing the signal strength on the display.

The signal strength is displayed as a bar graph by pressing the SELECT/TUNING MODE knob once.

< It is possible to use a TV or FM antenna with your

DAB tuner as this is normally mounted externally.

This may give a stronger signal than a simple internal antenna, however it would not be tuned specifically for DAB reception.

You would need to change the plug on your TV/FM antenna to an F type, and it may also be necessary to use a signal booster to enhance the signal.

About DAB Setting up your DAB Tuner

With this unit you can receive and listen to Digital Audio

Broadcast (DAB) programmes. DAB uses digital, not analogue signals, resulting in near CD-quality audio with virtually interference-free reception. Along with superior quality audio, DAB can also deliver additional audio channels and text. In the future, computer data and images are also possible.

Digital radio is broadcast as groups of data called ensembles or multiplexes. Each multiplex can contain a number of stations (services) and each station contains a primary service and can contain secondary services as illustrated in the following diagram.

DAB SIGNAL

The first time you turn on the unit, it will scan for DAB channels and build a channel list.

Press the POWER switch to turn the unit on.

The following screen will display for 2 seconds.

SECONDARY

SERVICES

As channels are added to the channel list the number of channels found is displayed.

Each multiplex is transmitted in a set frequency range and received by this unit for decoding. You can receive multiplexes broadcast in the 174–240 MHz frequency band and store the services in each multiplex for you to access. The number of multiplexes you receive depend on your location. Channels used in the UK are in the range 10A to 12D.

Multiplexes and stations have labels (names) that are used to identify them. Instead of needing to know the particular frequency of your favourite broadcast, you can simply select the station name. Secondary services and additional data such as text or multiplex info are also available.

After broadcast services have been found the channels are listed in alphanumeric order.

> If no broadcast services are found, please check that the antenna is correctly connected to the unit.

Troubleshooting

In case of any trouble with this unit, please take the time to look through this chart and see if you can solve the problem yourself before you call your dealer or a

TEAC service center.

General

No sound.

e Check the connection to the AC wall outlet.

e Check the connection to the amplifier.

e Check that speakers are connected to the amplifier.

e Ensure that T-H300DAB and connected amplifier are turned on.

Cannot listen to any station, or signal is too weak.

e Tune in the station properly.

e If a TV is near the unit, turn it off.

e Install the antenna again after locating the best reception position.

e An external antenna may be required.

Noise is excessive.

e Poor location and/or direction of the antenna.

e Transmitting station is too far away.

Excessive distortion in the sound of stereo broadcasts.

e Check the speaker system connections.

Though the FM broadcast is stereo, it sounds monaural.

e Press the FUNCTION/FM MODE button.

Remote control doesn’t work.

e Press the POWER switch of the main unit to turn it to standby.

e If the batteries are dead, change the batteries.

e Use the remote control within a 5-m range and point it at the front panel.

e Clear obstacles between the remote control unit and the main unit.

e If a strong light is near the unit, turn it off.

All the preset stations are erased.

e If the power supply is interrupted for 15 days or longer, the setting kept in memory (such as preset stations) are erased. When this happens, the internal battery that is used to retain settings in memory is exhausted and must be recharged by having the unit connected to power for at least 3 days.

DAB tuner

No sound.

e Ensure that the T-H300DAB has been able to locate DAB stations.

“NO stations Available” appears on the display.

e Check that antenna is connected.

e Ensure that DAB coverage exists in your area.

Cannot access secondary services.

e At the time of publishing not many secondary services are available, this will increase as more

DAB stations start broadcasting. If a secondary service station is available, the secondary indicator >> will be displayed next to the station name.

Display goes out or displayed “service off air”.

e This may occur if a broadcaster changes the label of a service or removes a label whilst you are listening to it. The T-H300DAB will try to retune to this station, or alternatively follow the procedure for auto tune on page 15.

Cannot listen to the selected station.

e Ensure you have pressed the SELECT/TUNING

MODE knob when you want to listen to your selection. The station you are currently listening to will be displayed on the first line of the display, as you scroll through the station order list the second line will show other station options. Press the

SELECT/TUNING MODE knob to activate your selection.

A burbling sound is heard on some stations.

e DAB like other digital media is good at producing quality audio from a low level signal, however if this signal level is too low a ‘burbling’ sound can sometimes be heard. To reduce this, try repositioning your antenna to gain maximum signal strength.

If normal operation cannot be recovered, unplug the power cord from the outlet and plug it in again. This resets the internal micro-computer which can be disturbed during electrical storms, power interruptions, et cetera.
