2 Basic operation
2.1
First operation / self test
In case the CS 2.2 was not connected to mains a self test will be performed when it is switched on by
the mains switch (34) for the first time. The unit will check its configuration and that all the installed
components work properly. The procedure is shown in the display. Afterwards the unit will switch to
stand-by.
2.2
Switching on / stand-by
Using the button power (1) You can switch between on (operate) and stand-by. In the on state the
display (3) lights up and the LED (2) is off. In stand-by mode the display is off and the LED is on to
indicate that the unit is still connected to mains.
CAUTION: When switched to stand-by the unit is still connected to the mains. In case of a
thunderstorm or if you leave the house for a longer time we recommend that you switch the amplifier
off by using the mains switch (33) or pull the mains plug.
2.3
Selecting the signal source

appears on the display. For selecting Tuner or CD, use the direct access keys 10 / 11.
CAUTION: If you switch to another source while playing a CD, the drive will stop first. This may take a
few seconds. If you activate a digital input that has no valid signal, "NO DIG SIGNAL" is indicated in
the display (3). In this case the source can not be changed.
3.4 Volume setting
Use the rotary encoder (14) to set the desired volume. Depending on rotating speed the volume
increases / decreases in 0.5 dB steps (slow) or 2 dB steps (fast). The actual setting is shown in the
display (3).
Please not that if the volume is changed using the RC 9 remote control, the level always increases /
decreases in 2 dB steps.
2.3.1 Setting of input sensitivity
The level of signal sources differs often by several dBs. You recognize a step in volume, when
switching between two different inputs. With the sensitivity setting menu you can avoid this. The
sensitivity of each input can be adjusted between – 9.5 dB and + 10.0 dB.

Select any input (but NOT the Tuner or CD) and chose a convenient volume level. Now press the
multifunctional button 6 under the display for more than 2 seconds. The button is now marked "EXIT
LVL". Pressing this button again will exit the level setting mode and bring the unit back to normal
operating mode.
While level setting is active the display shows the actual level instead of the volume. Level can be set
using the volume knob (6). Now you can switch between the sources (also CD and tuner) and adjust
the levels.
When this is done press the "EXIT LVL" knob and bring the unit back to normal operating mode. All
level settings are now stored.
NOTE: While the level setting mode is active the unit will not respond to any RC 9 remote control
command.

Tuner
The basic functions of the tuner can be accessed by the buttons right under the display (4 – 8). More
sophisticated functions and all web radio features are available via the menu and the included RC 9
remote control.
2.4.1 Tuning
Depending on the selected mode (manual / auto) the far right buttons (7, 8) under the display (3)
are named 33AUT4 or 33MAN4. In AUT-mode a tip on one of the buttons lets the tuner automatically
seek the next upper or lower station. In MAN mode the frequency changes in 50 kHz-steps as long as
the button is pressed. In this case the tuning indicator shown in the display (3) helps you to tune
correctly to the desired station. If tuning is correct it will show "locked“.
NOTE: To optimize the sound quality you can use the functions mode, sensitivity and bandwidth,
which are described later on in chapter 3.
2.4.2 Station and memory
Storing a new station
If you want to store a certain station in the memory, press the button MENU (6) under the display (3) for
more than 2 seconds. The display will propose the next free memory position for storage (for example:

3 Advanced Settings
The CS 2.2 offers a lot of custom specific settings in its menu system. To enter the menu just tap on
the button MENU (6). The button now changes to EXIT. A second tip on this button leads you to the
normal operating mode. When the menu system is active you can select the desired function using the
buttons 3ITEM4 (4, 5). The setting is done using the buttons 3VALUE4 (7, 8).
Depending on the actual source the menu system offers a range of settings described in the following.
3.1
RDS-Display
Tuner must be selected as source
Choose if station NAME, RDS-TEXT or FREQUENCY is displayed.
3.2
Scanmode
Tuner must be selected as source
Set tuning mode between "auto" or "manual" (see also 2.4.1).
3.3
2-CH-Mode
Tuner must be selected as source
Set tuner to mono or stereo to obtain best sound.
NOTE: Depending on actual setting the threshold for auto tuning will change (sensitive in MONO, less
sensitive in STEREO).
10
3.4
Bandwidth
Tuner must be selected as source
Select bandwidth "narrow" / "wide" for best reception.
3.5
Sensitivity
Tuner must be selected as source
Choose between "local" (in case the tuner operates from a cable) and "distant" (if operated from
antenna).
3.6
tone control
Set tone control to "bypass" (= linear) or "active". In case the tone control is activated "TONE ON" is
shown in the display (4), otherwise "LINEAR".
You can choose if you want to change bass and treble settings simultaneously for all inputs ("global")
or especially for the actual input ("individual"). See 10.1.6
The loudness function depends on speakers and properties of the listening room and is therefore
always "global".
NOTE: In case tone control is set to "bypass" the menu will skip the bass, treble, and loudness
settings (see 3.7-3.9).
3.7
set bass
Set bass level between – 5 dB and + 9 dB.
3.8
set treble
Set treble level between – 7 dB and + 7 dB.
3.9
set loudness
If you listen to music at low levels, you often recognize that bass and treble reproduction are weak.
This is because the human ear is not sensitive to bass and treble at low sound levels. To compensate
this you can use the parametric loudness function of the CS 2.2. This function will increase bass and
treble levels when you decrease the volume. When the volume is increased the frequency response will
be more and more flat and remain linear at high volume levels. In order to obtain best results you have
to proceed in the following way:
Set the amplifier to a moderate volume level. Using the buttons 3et the (7, 8) choose in the loudness
menu a curve ("of" and 1 to 9) which gives best sound impression and exit the menu (button EXIT (6)).
NOTE: The loudness function selects automatically the correct curve depending on actual volume
setting. So if you change volume a different curve than previously selected may be shown in the
loudness menu. This is not a malfunction.
3.10 set balance
Set the balance between right and left channel for optimal stereo image.
11
3.11 set display brightness
Sets display brightness 25% to 100%.
NOTE: The setting 100% can lead to "burn in" effects on the display if the unit is operated in this
setting for a very long time. So please switch the unit to stand by, if not in use.
3.12 bass & treble control
Choose if you want to change bass and treble settings simultaneously for all inputs ("global") or
especially for the actual input ("individual").
3.13 skip unused inputs
Deactivate unused inputs ("SKIP"). The unit will then skip these inputs when the source selector (12) is
pressed or if you select the inputs via the RC 9 remote control.
3.14 define input names
You can individually set the names (max. 8 characters) of the different sources shown in the display (3).
Proceed as follows:
Press SELECT. The display shows now on the left side the old name, on the right side the new name.
The character to change is marked by an underscore. The keys 3ress (4, 5) select the input, the keys
34, 5 (7, 8) select the position of the character to change. The marked character can be set using the
volume knob (14). When you are ready, simply press BACK (6). and the new names will be stored.
3.15 gain fix / variable
In a surround system the channel balance, tone setting and bass management are done by the
decoder. This setting must not be altered by another component because the channel balance the
would be incorrect. For this application the CS 2.2 offers the fixed gain function (only for inputs 1-3).
Set the input where the main channels of the surround system are connected to fixed gain. When this
input is selected, tone controls are bypassed, balance is set to neutral position and the gain is on a
fixed level independently of the volume setting on the other inputs.
3.16 FM auto store
This function is useful when storing a large quantity of stations from cable. Please note that the
stations are stored including the actual tuner setting (see 3.1-3.5). For cable we recommend: RDSdisplay = name, scanmode = auto, 2-ch mode = stereo, bandwidth = narrow, sensitivity = local.
Once the tuner parameters are set in the desired way enter the personal setup and select "FM auto
store". Then press the button START (4). While the auto store function is in progress all stations are
played audibly for half a second. When the function is terminated the display shows for 2 seconds the
number if stations found. Then the unit comes back to normal tuner operating mode.
If desired you can now shift certain stations to different positions, change the settings and store back
or delete unwanted stations (see 2.4.2).
12
3.17 Set autoplay
When AUTOPLAY is ON, the CD player will start playing automatically every time a new CD is inserted.
If AUTOPLAY is OFF, the player will read the TOC of the inserted disc and then go to STOP mode.
3.18 Reset
This function cancels certain or all settings and makes the unit return to default settings.
To enter the reset menu, please switch off your device on the rear of the unit at the mains switch (33).
Keep the middle key under the display pressed (6) while you switch on the unit again (33). As soon as
