CD-MP3
WHAT IS MP3 ?
- MP3 (MPEG 2, layer 3) is a digital file format for audio (music).
- You can download MP3 songs from many websites on the internet (please observe the
copyright regulations of your country).
- MP3 songs are much smaller in memory size compared with normal CD-audio format
songs. This is called “compression” & it allows much more recording time on a standard
CD than the normal 74 minutes (for normal CD-audio).
- The exact length of recording time depends on the “compression rate” of the MP3 song
you have downloaded.
- Compression rate is specified in “kbps” (kilobits per second). For example : “128 kbps”:
The higher this number, the bigger the MP3 file size (the better the sound quality) and
the lower the recording time on a CD-R. Normally based on 128 kbps, you should have
approx. 250-300 minutes of recording time on a CD-R.
- MP3 songs can be recorded with some “text information” as part
of the same file. It consists of (among other details:)
- File name (song name)
- Artist name
- Your CD-MP3 player can locate (“FIND”) a song on an MP3-CD disc from
the “FILE NAME”, therefore you should try to name all your MP3 files with
the actual name of the song that it contains.
- There are basically 2 ways to make an MP3-CD with your favorite songs :
- Download MP3 songs from internet & burn them on a CD-R disc on your computer.
- Convert CD-audio files (from a normal music CD) onto your computer into MP3
format, using a kind software called “CD-RIPPER”. (which is freeware/shareware
on internet).
HOW TO PLAY CD-MP3 DISCS
- Press “ON/STANDBY” key to switch on the unit
- Press the “FUNCTION” key repeatedly until the display shows “CD”.
- Insert an MP3 CD into the player as described.
- The disk will automatically start spinning and the first song (track) will begin playing.
The display will indicate the current track no. (“001” if it is the first track) as well as the
play time of that track in minutes and seconds.

(compatible with USB version 1.1 & 2.0).
- This unit also has a built-in SD-card socket which can
accept and play MP3 files stored on standard “SD” type
flash memory cards (of maximum capacity = 4 GB) which
are commonly available.
- To utilize this facility, first insert either a USB-drive or an
SD-CARD into the correct slot (port).

described).
*Note:
Although this product is
fully compatible with USB
1.1 & 2.0 standards, a small
percentage (about 5%) of
USB flash drives might not
be Readable, due to those
USB-DRIVE manufacturers
non-compliance
with the full (official)
USB 1.1 / 2.0 standards.
*Note:
The reading time for a
USB-DRIVE or SD-CARD
varies depending on the
speed of the memory device
and the number of songs
and folders. In some cases
the reading time may be as
long as 60 seconds.
*Important:
Always switch off the unit
or change mode to “CD”
or “RADIO” before removing
a USB flash drive or SD-CARD,
to prevent damage to your
USB device or memory card.
IMPORTANT POINT
Please do NOT use a USB Extension Cable to connect your USB FLASH DRIVE to the USB PORT of
this unit. Such cables can pick up additional interference which can corrupt the data flow, preventing
normal operation and usage of the USB port. Always connect your USB Flash Drive DIRECTLY to the
USB PORT without any USB extension cables.
This unit does not support USB-MP3 player, due to their inherent lack of software compatibility. Only
USB “pen drives” (FLASH MEMORY USB DRIVES) can be used, for MP3 playback.
NOTE: This unit supports up to maximum memory size of 4 GB USB flash drive & SD CARD.

SETTING UP A MUSIC SERVER
In order for the unit to play music files from a computer, the computer must be set up to
share files or media.
Media sharing allows the unit to play music from a shared media library, navigating through
tag menus such as Artist, Album or Genre. If you are running a suitable server system
such as a PC with Windows Media Player 10 or later (WMP), and your music library is
well-tagged, then it is recommended to use media sharing.
Note:
iTunes does not currently work due to it being a closed non-sharing platform.
Folder sharing allows the unit to browse folders on a network drive for audio files. This
is a good alternative if you cannot use media sharing, and an alternative way to find files
even if you have media sharing set up. The computer needs to be set up to share folders, and
if this is done with password control, you also need to enter the user name and password
into the unit.
SHARING MEDIA WITH WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER
The most common way is Windows Media Player (10 or later). To set up WMP for media
sharing, perform the following steps:
1. Ensure that the PC is connected to the network.
2. Ensure that is powered on unit is set to “Music Player” and connected to the same
network.
3. In WMP, add to the media library the audio files and folders you want to share with
the unit (Library > Add to Library…).
4. In WMP, enable media sharing (Library > Media sharing…).
The unit maybe listed as an “Unknown Device”. Make sure that the unit has access to the
shared media by selecting it and clicking Allow.
The PC is now ready to stream the music to the radio.

SHARING FOLDERS ON A WINDOWS PC
To share folders in Windows, the PC must first be a member of a domain or workgroup. Once
this is setup, folders can be shared from Windows Explorer (My Computer).
DOMAIN/WORKGROUP CONFIGURATION
The Domain configuration item can be found on a Windows XP machine as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control Panel > System >Computer Name tab.
The Computer’s Domain or Workgroup is displayed in this tab.
2. If the PC is not a member of any Domain or Workgroup then one must be joined. To
do this click on the change button and enter the name of the domain (the default for
Windows XP is MSHOME).
3. A reboot of the PC may be prompted if the Domain or Workgroup has been changed.
SETTING UP A NEW USER ACCOUNT (WINDOWS XP)
The Wi-Fi Radio requires a user account to be set up on each PC that you wish to browse.
By default most PCs have at least one user account. The user name and password (optional)
need to be the same on each PC, as the Internet Radio only stores one user name and one
password. For windows XP this can be set up as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control Panel > User accounts.
2. From this screen click ‘Add …’, and enter the new user name and the Domain/Workgroup
setting noted above. Select the type of user (restricted) and then select finish.
3. Select the user just created, select ‘Reset Password …’ and enter a password for this
user.
4. Note the user name and password.
Note:
For Windows Vista: Users have to turn on the Guest account via manage user accounts
in the control panel, then add access to either ‘Everyone’ or ‘Guest’ on the shared
drive. You could create a new account for the internet radio, with a password, if you
are concerned about security. The Guest account has no password by default, so the
unit will connect to the guest account from it’s default settings.
Configuring a shared drive
From the Start menu select My Computer or Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory
you wish to share. Right click on the folder and select Sharing and Security. Configure the
shared drive as read-only, and ensure that the user created above has read access to the share.

SHARING FOLDERS ON NON-WINDOWS COMPUTERS
It is beyond the scope of this manual to describe how to share folders on all computer
systems. Please refer to your operating system documentation to find out how to share
folders on non-Windows computer systems. If you configure shared folders with user name
and password security, note these values.
SETTING UP THE UNIT TO WORK WITH SHARED FOLDERS
To set up the unit to playback audio stored on password-protected shared network drives,
you need to enter a user name and password. To do this, from Music player mode, select
Menu > PC settings > Username and enter the user name then PC settings > Password
and enter the password.
Enter a keyword by selecting characters then OK.
The user name and password entry screens are similar in operation to the Wi-Fi password
entry screen. The default user name is ‘guest’.

DAB/DAB+
WHAT IS DAB
Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+), is a digital radio technology for broadcasting
radio stations which allow for more radio programmes to be offered over a specific spectrum
than analogue FM radio.
The focus of converting to digital transmission is to enable higher fidelity, more stations and
more resistance to noise. DAB/DAB+ is also more robust with regard to noise as DAB/DAB+
reception quality first degrades when the signal strength falls below a critical threshold,
whereas FM reception quality degrades slowly with the decreasing signal.
DAB/DAB+ broadcasts can also carry “radiotext” from the station giving real-time
information such as song titles, music type and news or traffic updates. Advance programme
guides can also be transmitted. A similar feature also exists on FM in the form of the RDS.
(However, not all FM receivers allow radio stations to be stored by name.)
OPERATION OF DAB/DAB+ RADIO
- Press the On/Standby key once to switch on the unit.
- Press the Function key repeatedly to switch to DAB/DAB+ Radio mode.
- The first time you select DAB/DAB+ Radio mode, the unit will automatically perform a
full scan.
- To start a manual scan, press the Menu key and use either the jogwheel or the
/Next or
/Prev keys to select the “Full Scan” option. To scan only stations with
good signal strength, select the “Local Scan” option.
- A manual scan may be needed if the first scan was done during weak reception and an
update needed, or to filter channels with strong signal strength.
/Next or
/Prev keys to browse
- To listen to or change a station, use the jogwheel or
