Listening for a Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit youʼve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now itʼs time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics
Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets
the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to a higher volume of
sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard
against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all,
we want you listening for a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and
the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Some common decibel ranges:
Level
30

Example
Quiet library, Soft whispers
Living room, Refrigerator, Bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, Normal Conversation
Air Conditioner at 20 ft., Sewing machine

Getting Connected
Speakers
Before we get into connecting speakers, there are two important issues to consider: speaker impedance and multiple
speakers.
The Casaman is rated to perform as low as 4Ω (ohms). The Ω (ohms) rating is a measure of the speaker’s impedance.
Basically, the rating tells you how much amplifier power will be passed through
the speakers. For example, a 4Ω (ohms) speaker has less impedance than an 8Ω
Overall
Speaker 1 Speaker 2 Impedance
(ohms) speaker, and thus will offer less resistance to the flow of energy from the
amplifier. With less resistance, a 4Ω (ohms) speaker will pull more power from the
amplifier than an 8Ω (ohms) speaker will. Since 4Ω (ohms) speakers are capable of
drawing out more of the amplifier’s power, 4Ω (ohms) speakers will play louder than
8Ω (ohms) speakers.
When connecting two speakers to a speaker output, this changes the impedance.
Basically, when two speakers of equal impedance are connected to a speaker
output, the impedance is cut in half. So two 8Ω (ohms) speakers connected to a
single channel now has a 4Ω (ohms) load. Because the Casaman is rated at no
lower than 3Ω (ohms), you can only connect two speakers to a speaker output if
they are 6Ω (ohms) or above.
You can use speaker cable with either bare wire or banana plug ends.

Warning: The 3 Ω (ohms) and 2 Ω

Casaman.
If you are using bare wire, loosen the plastic cap on each speaker connector by turning it counter-clockwise. This exposes the
interior metal rod. You can either stick the bare wire through the hole in the rod, or line it around the rod itself. Then tighten
the cap to secure the connection.

Banana Connector
If using banana plugs, first ensure that the plastic caps are fully tightened on the speaker terminals. Connect the speaker
cable by pushing the banana plug onto the speaker output with the pins properly aligned and color matched to ensure proper
polarity. If connecting two speakers, stack the banana plugs.

Troubleshooting
There is no power
•
Check the power cable connection both at the mains and the Casaman. Also make sure that the Casaman is
configured for local power (115V/230V).
One channel is not working
•
Check the source audio device. Is it configured correctly? Are both channels working? If using RCA cables, are
both cables working and corrected properly?
Sound is distorted
•
This is most likely occurring at the source device. Make sure the signal is set to an appropriate level. Are there
clip LEDs lighting on the source device?
The unit has shut down on its own.
•
The unit has exceeded it maximum operating temperature. Check the impedance of connected speakers. Is the
total load lower than 4Ω (ohms)? Refer to the Getting Connected section.
COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I get the Bluetooth Module as an Input Source?
The Bluetooth module signal is overlaid the input source currently playing. To isolate the Bluetooth module, simply
pause/stop all other music sources connected to the Casaman.
I’m using a Mac, and I can’t get the audio to or from the Casaman. Help!
Please refer to your Apple computer owner’s manual for detailed instructions on how to switch audio output/input settings.
The settings that dictate where your computer sends audio needs to be changed to send it to the Casaman, which
is listed as “USB Audio Codec” in the audio setting menu.
To record, you have to change the settings that dictate where your computer receives audio from. Change it to
accept audio from “USB Audio Codec”.
Why won’t the MPX switch remove the vocals from my music?
The MPX switch will only work properly when applied to what’s called Multiplexed tracks and discs. Multiplexed
discs/tracks are recorded in such a way that allows the removal of the main vocals; if the track is not a multiplex
enabled song then the switch will not remove the vocals entirely.

missing/defective parts.
