operate. It is designed to ensure you maximise your pleasure of CD player and familiarise you with its many unique functions.
CHECKING
POWER UP
Check that the carton has no damage. Should you have any doubt
about its condition, please do not hesitate to contact your dealer.
You may now turn on your amplifier by switching the ON/OFF switch
located at the back of the unit.
The display indicates the model of your amplifier:
UNPACKING
Very carefully remove the unit from the box, taking care to
preserve all the packing material. It is good practice to put the
carton and its contents into an outer plastic bag and deposit it
somewhere safe and dry. In the unlikely event that your unit
needs to be sent back to either your dealer or distributor, it must
be sent in the original packing material. Failure to observe this will
invalidate your warranty.
ACCESSORIES
Upon opening the carton you should find the following:
Mains Lead
Remote control handset
4 pces AAA battery.
MAINS VOLTAGE
- Check that the mains voltage indicated on both the carton and
the rear of the unit correspond to the local power supply
- If you are in any doubt, consult your dealer.
INSTALLATION
In order to obtain the maximum performance of A60, it is
important to follow the installation instructions.
Wherever possible, we recommend that your amplifier is installed
in an audio rack or other suitable furniture that provides sufficient
ventilation.
WARNING!
If for aesthetic or ease of use reasons, you choose to stack the
units, it is imperative that you place your amplifier on the top.
Never place any unit on top of your amplifier. We recommend that
you provide a space of at least 30cm above your amplifier in order
to ensure adequate ventilation.
CONNECTIONS
Having verified that the mains voltage indicated on the rear of the unit
corresponds to the local power supply mains voltage and that the
ON/OFF switch is on OFF position, connect the mains leads provided to
the rear the unit and to the wall socket.
Connect the Stereo Interconnect cables from the rear of all your sources
to the corresponding inputs on your amplifier.
Connect your loudspeaker cables between your amplifier and your
loudspeakers paying attention to polarity.
The very high quality speaker terminals accept different type of
connections like bananas, or stripped up to 10mm² speaker wires. It is
important to use quality speaker cable to get the maximum out of your
amplifier.
Then the standby LED lights up indicating that the unit is on standby
mode.
Press on the STANDBY key of the unit of the unit or on the AMP key of
the remote control handset if you have one. The unit turns on and the
display shows:
NOTA: Due to the very large amount of energy stored in the power supplies, it is
strongly recommended to wait for 15 seconds between turning off the unit and
turning it on again. If you do not follow this recommendation a very small switching
noise could appear in the speakers.

LISTENING TO HEADPHONES (HEADPHONE)
2.1 MODE
The headphone socket is located on the front panel of the unit. The
headphone volume setting is independent of the loudspeaker volume.
- Press the HEADPHONE key.
The display will indicate:
Your amplifier is equipped with a SUB-OUT output. You can connect an active
subwoofer to this output. The level of this output is set by the main volume control
of the unit.
If you have an audio-video processor like AP-180, a SUB-IN input is available just
above the SUB-OUT connector.
Connect the SUB-OUT of your audio-video processor to the SUB-IN of your
amplifier. When in Stereo mode your amplifier will control the level of your active
subwoofer while when in PRO-ON mode the audio-video processor will take
control over your active subwoofer.
This unique feature allows a complete different subwoofer set-up between stereo
mode and home cinema mode.
Note: When headphones are in use, the loudspeaker output is
automatically disconnected.
- Headphone volume can be adjusted via the central rotary control.
-Press the HEADPHONE key to return to loudspeaker operation.
The headphone logo disappears and the unit returns to its previous setup
including volume level.

ANALOG INPUTS NAMES
The four analog inputs AN1, AN2, AN3, et AN4 can be renamed using the internal
name library of the microcontroller of your amplifier.
The following names are available: OFF, CD, FM, DVD, TV, SAT, VCR, AUX, AV1,
AV2, MP3, SPE, PVR and GAME.
To replace the name of a source, place your amplifier on this source and make a
long pressure on the second key INPUT SELECT >. The display shows then:
Using the central rotary knob the name between the brackets will scroll through the
list of available names until you find the one you are looking for.
If you wish to change another input name press again on the INPUT SELECT >
key and proceed in the same way. Once your choice is done wait 5 seconds and
your amplifier will revert to normal operation. During the change of name, listening
continues normally without any interruption.
REMOVING AN INPUT [OFF]
While you are setting the names on the four analog inputs, the name [OFF]
appears in the list of available names. If you choose to name one or more inputs
with this name, the selected inputs will be removed from the listening loop.
Example: You have three sources, a vinyl turntable connected to PHONO input,
a CD player that you have connected to AN2 named CD and a FM tuner
connected to AN4 named FM.
If you scroll through the inputs, your amplifier will indicate: PHO, AN1, CD, AN3,
FM, iPod.
If you wish that AN1 and AN3 do not appear when selecting the different inputs,
you should assign them with the name [OFF]. Your amplifier will then indicate:
PHO, CD, FM, iPod.
SPECIAL NAMES (CD, FM)
In the list of available names, two names CD and FM are different than the other
ones.
If an analog input has been named CD, a short pressure on the CD key of the
Micromega system remote control handset will set your Micromega CD player out
of standby if it was, set also your amplifier out of standby if it was and set your
amplifier automatically on the CD input.
It is exactly the same with any input named FM and the FM key of the Micromega
system remote control handset.
IDOK INPUT
Your amplifier is equipped with a DB9 female connector located at the left end side
of the rear panel. This connector is used to attach it a Micromega iDok.
This optional unit allows you to charge your iPod or your iPhone and to control
them using the Micromega system remote control handset.
On another end, as soon as your amplifier will have detected the presence of an
iPod or an iPhone, it will automatically select the iDok analog input and the front
panel iPod input will be disconnected.
