Grounding or Polarization. This product is equipped with
polarized alternating-current line plugs (plugs having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable
to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician
to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
Power Cord Protection. Power-supply cord should be
routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by
items placed upon or against it, paying particular attention
to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the appliances.
Lightning. For added protection for this audio/video product
during a lightning storm, or when it is left un-attended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This
will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
Power Lines. An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into
such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep
from touching such power lines or circuits as contact
with them might be fatal.
Overloading. Do not overload wall outlets and extension
cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Object and Liquid Entry. Never push objects of any kind
into this product through openings, as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could
result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on this audio/video product.
Servicing. Do not attempt to service this product yourself,
as opening or removing covers may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
Damage Requiring Service. Unplug this product from
wall outlets and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen
into the product.

On A Corner Table—the closer to the wall the more bass
boost you will hear; you may want to reduce the bass
in the Setting Menu (See page 22).
In An Armoire Or Enclosed Shelf—the acoustic image may
be restricted because the back speakers are under the shelf;
this may also increase the bass output. You may want to
adjust a combination of bass and treble setting; for instance
reduce the bass and increase the treble in the Setting

Special
Features
I-Sonic®
Technology
Four-speaker I-Sonic® technology delivers a room-filling, stereo
soundstage 360° around the entertainment system. You will
hear big lifelike sound everywhere in the room, even if you
are to the side or behind the unit. By manipulating the signals
from the front speakers through a pattern of signal cancellation,
reinforcement and delays, Polk Audio engineers created a larger
sound stage and more specific imaging. The result is a rich, full
stereo image projected all around the I-Sonic Entertainment
System 2 into the room, with the clarity and spacious sound
for which Polk Audio is known.
HD Radio™ Technology
& Multicasting—
A Revolution In Radio
HD Radio technology is the most significant technological
change to radio broadcasting since the introduction of FM
radio more than forty-five years ago. HD Radio technology is
the standard for digital AM and FM radio, transforming the radio
experience in ways never thought possible, both here and around
the world. HD Radio broadcasting offers both AM and FM listeners the quality, choice and interactive data services consumers
have come to expect from other digital technologies, and it’s
all subscription-free.
HD Radio
Advantages
I-Sonic four-speaker array technology
delivers a room-filling, stereo soundstage
360° around the I-Sonic ES2.
Multicasting, which is the ability to broadcast multiple program
streams over a single FM frequency (97.7-2, 97.7-3, etc.), thereby increasing the amount and diversity of content choices.
Static-free, crystal-clear reception.
CD-quality sound on FM; FM-stereo quality sound on AM
Stations stay in their well-known, traditional place
on the radio dial.
A variety of “data services” that will range from text-based
information (artist name, song title, weather alerts, school
closings and more) to live traffic reports.
HD Radio receivers also receive conventional AM
and FM analog broadcasts.

Radio Reception
& Antenna Tips
Even the best quality AM & FM tuners may have some difficulty
receiving analog AM and FM signals as well as digital AM & FM
HD Radio signals. Here are some tips for getting the best possible
radio reception from your I-Sonic Entertainment System 2.
AM Radio
The I-Sonic ES2 has an external AM loop antenna. Be sure to
connect the wire marked in white to the white marked terminal
and the wire marked in black to the black marked terminal. Move
the antenna around to find the best reception position. If your
radio is located in a metal frame building, there may be no reliable
way to receive AM radio broadcasts.
FM Radio
The quality of FM reception is affected by many factors such
as distance, location of the radio transmission tower and your
proximity to large buildings, mountains and other large objects.
You will get better reception when the radio/antenna is placed
high in the house. If you cannot get noise free reception of
your favorite radio stations, use the supplied dipole external
FM antenna.
In many cases simply draping the dipole antenna behind the radio
or on the floor will yield good reception. For more distant stations
or tough reception locations it is best to fully extend the dipole
and secure it as high up a wall as is practical using push pins.
Make sure that at least 18" of the feed line is perpendicular to
the “arms.” The orientation of the dipole (East-West, North-South,
etc.) will have some impact on the reception of some stations.
A N-S orientation may work best for some stations while a
NE-SW orientation may be better for other stations. Experiment
with antenna orientation to find the position that works best
before permanently installing the antenna.
In some cases a vertical alignment of the dipole antenna works
best. Again, the feed line should be perpendicular to the “arms.”
You can also try creating a loop with the “arms” of the dipole as
illustrated. Shielded 75 Ohm dipole antennas (such as the C.Crane
FM Reflect) are easier to use in a loop mode and may be more
effective than the thin-wire dipole antenna supplied with the unit.
Many people find old-fashioned “rabbit ear” antennas to be a
good solution to reception problems. They are easily repositioned
and “tuned” for the specific stations you want to receive.
Rural Conditions
If you live far from radio transmitters you may not get the results
you want with any in-door antenna. The very best option is an
outdoor directional antenna specifically designed for FM with
a rotor for aiming the antenna. If you already have a roof TV
antenna you can tap into that although a specially designed
FM antenna is better.
Urban Conditions
In the city, signal strength is less of an issue. The biggest impediment to good sounding FM in the city is Multipath distortion
caused by signals bouncing off of buildings. HD Radio signals are
immune from multipath problems and will sound great. Analog
FM stations may be highly distorted because of Multipath. Careful
aiming of a dipole, rabbit ear or roof antenna will help. Don’t be
surprised if you have to aim the antenna in different directions
for different stations. The best method for distortion free FM
reception is a highly directional outdoor FM antenna with rotor.
Cable
Some cable TV companies broadcast FM signals on their cable
systems. Check with your local cable provider before attempting
to hook up your I-Sonic’s FM antenna jack to your cable system.
Horizontal Dipole
Vertical Dipole
Note: Amplified antennas may be useful for analog FM
reception but actually degrade reception of HD Radio signals.
