!
Take care to connect the left and right channels correctly. The right channel is usually marked red,
the left channel black or white.
Connection to an amplifier
When the Tuner Box S is used with a Pro-Ject amplifier connect the line level output to input 1(In 1) on the amp.
When used with another manufacturers amplifier connect the line level output to the input marked Tuner on
the amp.
Antenna input
Connects any antenna cable with a co-axial DIN-plug / US-model F-plug.
Remote switch-on
The pre amplifier Pro-Ject Pre Box S provides a trigger signal to switch on and off the Tuner Box S remotely
and for operating the input expander Pro-Ject Switch Box S.
The switching lead should be connected to the Trigger Switch socket on Pre Box S and the Trigger In
socket on the Tuner Box S. In order to ensure correct remote switching, the Tuner Box S must be connected
to the line level input socket (In 1) on the Pro-Ject Pre Box S.
The trigger signal is passed through the Trigger In socket to the Trigger Out socket of the Tuner Box S,
through which it can be relayed to the input expander Pro-Ject Switch Box S.
Two approx. 45cm long trigger leads are supplied with the Pro-Ject Tuner Box S. Longer leads may be
purchased from your Pro-Ject dealer.
Do not use this trigger output for any other connections for which it is not designed.
If any other input is used to connect the Pro-Ject Tuner Box S to a Pro-Ject Pre Box S, the trigger
lead should not be used.
!
Switch off all units and disconnect them from the mains before connecting or disconnecting the
trigger lead. Failing to do so could result in damage to the units.
Mains power connection
The unit is supplied with a power supply suitable for your country's mains supply. Check the label before
connecting to ensure compliance with the mains rating in your house. Connect the low voltage plug from the
power supply to the Power 9V " socket before connecting the power supply to the mains.
