Introduction
Thank you for choosing a Galaxy Audio professional wireless in-ear monitor system. You have joined thousands of
other satisfied customers. Our years of professional experience in design and manufacturing ensure our products’
quality, performance and reliability.
1. Introduction
1. EIA-standard metal materials half - rack transmitter chassis.
2. Durable, ergonomic plastic body Receiver with soft-touch controls.
3. 42MHz Bandwidth, 275 Selectable UHF frequencies
4. PLL (Phase Lock Loop frequency control) design ensures transmission reliability, “Noise Lock” squelch
effectively blocks stray RF.
5. Designed to provide incredible audio quality and reliable performance for artists, broadcasters and other
demanding audio environments.
2. Transmitter Installation and Connections
Installation
1. For better operation the transmitter should be at least 3ft. (1m) above the ground and at least 3ft. away from
a wall or metal surface to minimize reflections.
2. Keep antennas away from noise sources such as computer, digital equipment, motors, automobiles and
neon lights, as well as away from large metal objects.
3. Antenna are normally positioned 45° from vertical for best transmission.
4. Keep open space between the receiver and transmitter for better reception.
5. The transmitter should be at least 6ft. (2m) from the receiver.
Connections:
1. The 12V, 300mA switching power supply is designed to operate properly from any AC power source without
user adjustment. Simply connect the transmitter to a standard AC power outlet, using only an IEC-type input
cordset approved for the country of use. Power to the unit is controlled by the front panel power switch.
2. There are two audio inputs on the rear panel: 1/L and 2/R audio INPUTS. Suitable for an XLR balanced
audio input connector or a balanced/unbalanced 1/4" (6.3mm) input connector. The two audio inputs
simultaneous feed from two different outputs. Use the appropriate shielded audio cable for connections
between the transmitter and the output(s) of the mixer or other audio output equipment.

Safety
USING THIS SYSTEM AT EXCESSIVE VOLUMES CAN CAUSE PERMANENT HEARING DAMAGE.
USE AS LOW A VOLUME AS POSSIBLE.
WARNING!
In order to use this system safely, avoid prolonged listening at excessive sound pressure levels. Please use the following guidelines established by
the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) on maximum time exposure to sound pressure levels before hearing damage occurs.
110 dB SPL at ½ hour
115 dB SPL at 15 minutes
120 dB SPL — avoid or damage may occur
90 dB SPL at 8 hours
95 dB SPL at 4 hours
100 dB SPL at 2 hours
105 dB SPL at 1 hour
It is difficult to measure the exact Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) present at the eardrum in live applications. In addition to the volume setting on the
Personal Monitors, the SPL in the ear is affected by ambient sound from floor wedges or other devices. The isolation provided by the fit of quality
earpieces is also an important factor in determining the SPL.
Here are some general tips to follow in the use of this product to protect your ears from damage.
• Turn up the volume control only far enough to hear properly.
• Ringing in the ears may indicate that the gain levels are too high. Try lowering the gain levels.
• Have your ears checked by an audiologist on a regular basis. If you experience wax buildup in your ears, stop using the system until an
audiologist has examined your ears.
• Wipe the ear molds with an antiseptic before and after use to avoid infections. Stop using the earphones if they are causing great discomfort
or infection.

LICENSING INFORMATION
THIS RADIO EQUIPMENT IS INTENDED FOR USE IN PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINMENT AND SIMILAR APPLICATIONS.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Galaxy Audio Incorporated could void your authority to operate the equipment.
Licensing of Galaxy Audio wireless microphone equipment is the user's responsibility, and licensability depends on the user's classification
and application, and on the selected frequency. Galaxy Audio strongly urges the user to contact the appropriate telecommunications
authority concerning proper licensing, and before choosing and ordering frequencies.
NOTE: THIS EQUIPMENT MAY BE CAPABLE OF OPERATING ON SOME FREQUENCIES NOT AUTHORIZED IN YOUR REGION.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR NATIONAL AUTHORITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ON AUTHORIZED FREQUENCIES FOR WIRELESS
MICROPHONE PRODUCTS IN YOUR REGION
Licensing: Note that a ministerial license to operate this equipment may be required in certain areas. Consult your national authority for
possible requirements.
FCC Consumer Alert for Wireless Microphones (U.S.)
Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a
license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess
of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC
is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change.

Wireless Tips
Wireless Tips
Maintain line of sight between the transmitter and receiver antennas.
Do not have walls, metal objects, large crowds, etc. blocking the line of sight between the transmitter
and receiver.
Antennas on the stationary equipment should be kept several feet above the ground.
Antennas can be mounted on stands or walls using brackets such as the ANT-LB.
On body pack receivers/transmitters, avoid putting them in your pocket, and/or folding the antenna
under the pack. The antenna should hang freely and openly.
Keep the distance between transmitters and receivers as short as possible.
If distances above 20-30' are unavoidable, directional antennas such as the ANT-PDL can improve
reception by rejecting signals outside their pickup angle.
Find out what TV stations are broadcasting in your area and avoid the channels they are on.
This information is available from many sources on line, such as www.tvfool.com.
If your receiver is showing that it is receiving RF when your transmitter is turned off, you need to move
to another frequency.
If you are using several systems, you can contact [email protected] for assistance in
frequency coordination.
Make certain you are using fresh batteries, rechargeable batteries may be used, but they discharge at a
much faster rate than alkaline.
