Preface
Preface
Dear Trigon Customer,
We are delighted that you have chosen the Chronolog. This device was
manufactured under the strictest manufacturing controls and is an exemplary
example of the latest in precision technology. Even if you are very experienced in working with Hi-Fi devices, we still recommend that you study this
Operating Manual closely and follow the instructions contained in it. Please
keep this manual in a safe place because it is sure to prove to be a valuable
source of information going forward, as you work with your audio player The
Trigon-Team hopes that you get many years of enjoyment from your new
Chronolog.

1. General Device Description
1. General Device Description
The Chronolog is an audio player that has been designed for playing the
highest quality digital media. The Chronolog will enable you to get the maximum possible audio enjoyment from your musical treasures. The Chronolog
copies the music from the CD onto an internal Solid State Drive (SSD) and
then plays it from there. This means that you can keep your CDs safely in their
cases, without the risk of them being damaged through use. The best way to
operate your Chronolog is through a tablet computer. We recommend using
the Tablet computers (iPad) from Apple as this impressed us most in terms
of speed and usability. But other tablet computers are available and can also
be used. You can equally well operate your Chronolog through any other
device that has a browser that supports the use of Java Scripts. As a rule, this
covers all modern devices with a browser.

1. General Device Description
1.1 Safety advice
• The TrigonElektronik GmbH Company assumes no liability for any
damage caused by improper use and by non-compliance with the following
safety instructions.
• The Chronolog must not be placed in the immediate proximity of heat
sources such as radiators, stoves, high-performance lighting, open flames,
etc.
• The Chronolog must not be subjected to any violent impacts or
vibration.
• The Chronolog must not be connected to mains power immediately
after having been moved from a cold environment into a warm room. A
build up of condensation could damage the device. Wait for some time
until the device has warmed up to the ambient temperature.
• The Chronologmust not be exposed to the direct rays of the sun.
• You should ensure that there is adequate ventilation available at the
location where the Chronolog is positioned.
• Do not operate the Chronolog without its protective housing.
• Always unplug the Chronolog from the mains supply before opening
it.
• Never bypass the fuse. A faulty fuse must always be replaced by one of
the same type and value.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to carry out any repairs
yourself. Any maintenance and/or repairs may only be carried out by
authorised personnel who received special training. Any possible claims
on the warranty are rendered null and void in the event of any improper
handling or in the case of unauthorised third-party interventions.
• The Chronolog must always be switched off before unplugging it or
before attaching any connection cables.
• The mains power may be between 100 V and 240 V.
• You should only use accessories/extensions with the Chronolog that
are recommended for the purpose by the manufacturer.
3
1. General Device Description
• The housing should only be cleaned using a lightly dampened cloth. No
abrasive cleaning fluids or scouring agents should be used. Always unplug
the device from the mains power during cleaning for safety reasons. You
should also ensure that you do not accidentally damage or loosen any
cables while cleaning. Check that all cables are securely connected before
connecting the Chronolog to the mains power again.
• Warning! You must ensure that at no time can liquids end up inside the
device!

1. General Device Description
1.2 Installation advice
After unpacking the device, please check your Chronolog for any signs of
transport damage. In the unlikely event that you identify some damage, please
contact your dealer immediately. Then check the contents of the packaging to
ensure that everything is there. Apart from the Chronolog you should aslo
find:
• A Trigon Volt power cable
• A dongle
• A DVI - VGA adapter
• Two WLAN antennae
• A warranty claims form
The device should be installed in a horizontal position at a dry location. Make
sure there is good ventilation. Strong magnetic scatter fields such as those
produced by halogen lamp transformers can lead to humming interference. For
this reason, your should install your Chronolog away from such devices. Also,
the connection cables should not be laid next to lighting cables. Luminescent
screen tubes also cause humming interference so that here also there should be
a distance of at least 1 metre between the device and any such lights. Avoid
installing your Chronolog where it will be exposed to direct sunlight and
where it is in close proximity to strong heat sources.

1. General Device Description
1.3 Warranty performance and service
With the Chronolog, you have acquired a high-quality and technically mature
product. At the Trigon Company, we go to great efforts to fulfil the demands
placed on a Trigon product at each stage of production, through numerous
quality tests and a strict outgoing goods inspection process. If in spite of this
you should experience a fault, the Trigon Elektronik GmbH Company
gives a three year warranty. The warranty covers the repair of the faulty part
and the cost of the labour. As a rule, warranty repairs are carried out at
the Trigon facility. Any further claims are excluded. The warranty excludes
any and all damage caused by improper installation, incorrect operation or
by repairs that have been carried out by non-authorised dealers and private
persons. Furthermore, the warranty lapses in the case of serial numbers that
have been rendered unrecognisable. Also, transport damage or damage caused
by accidents are excluded from the warranty.
Please check that the warranty card is filled out completely as otherwise, you
will not be able to make any claims on the warranty. The three year warranty
on your Chronolog starts from the date that the device is handed over to
you by the dealer. For this reason, you must hold onto the warranty card and
the receipt that identifies the date of the purchase. You should check with your
dealer how long he has had the device on stock as the term of the warranty
reduces correspondingly after the device has been on stock with the dealer for
one year.

2. Setup and Safety Advice
2. Setup and Safety Advice
After unpacking your Chronolog, you should first allow it time to warm up
to the ambient temperature. Particularly during the colder seasons of the year,
dampness can build up inside the device if the Chronolog is moved from a
cold environment to a warm one.
Once your Chronolog has acclimatised, we recommend that you familiarise
yourself with your new audio player. Firstly you should make the connection
between your pre-amplifier and the Chronolog. The second step is to connect
a monitor/television or the supplied dongle. Then connect the Chronolog to
your router or network with a suitable network cable, so that it can access the
Internet. The last step is to plug the supplied Trigon Volt power cable into the
Chronolog’s mains socket and connect the mains plug to the mains supply.
Now switch the Chronolog on by operating the power switch on the back of
the device and pressing the start button on the front of the device.
After powering up, the Chronolog’s drive is initialised and "Trigon Chronolog"
appears in the display on the front of the device.
Warning: The Chronolog does not start up if there is no monitor, television
or dongle connected.
During start-up, the status lamp flashes and the audio output is released by
a relay, which can be identified by a quiet click. Once start-up is completed,
the status lamp lights up permanently and the Main menu is displayed. You
should now familiarise yourself with the operating elements and the connection
sockets.

2. Setup and Safety Advice
2.1 The operating elements and the front display
We have tried to follow a policy of "as many as necessary, as few as possible"
when it comes to the operating elements. It was also very important to us at
the design stage, that the operation of the basic functions of the Chronolog
should be as simple and as intuitive as possible, as for example, with the control
pad (1 - 5) for navigating through the menu and the large on/off button (16).

2. Setup and Safety Advice
2.3 The Menu
The concept of the Chronolog is centred on the principle of simple, intuitive
operation. Nevertheless, there are some functions and settings that we have
"hidden" in sub-menus. You should read through the following sections carefully in order to be able to get the full benefit from all the options that the
Chronolog has to offer. Some functions are purely of a "cosmetic" nature and
just affect the display. Others, however, are very useful functions that greatly
facilitate operation.
After switching the Chronolog on, the Operational display flashes and a
flashing square is shown in the display. Once the text "Trigon Chronolog"
appears in the display, the Chronolog checks whether a monitor is connected
and sets itself to the appropriate resolution.
Warning:
The Chronolog does not start up if there is no monitor,
television or dongle connected.
The Chronolog starts its Main menu following this initialisation process.
2.3.1 Main Menu
The Main menu contains a number of items through which you can reach the
most important functions and sub-menus. You can navigate in the menu using
the buttons on the control pad (1 - 5) and the buttons 9 - 14 (see 2.1 on page
8).
The main menu items:

Figure 4.3: Music context menu
Select "Add source" from the Context menu that opens. If you know the path
to your server, you can enter that directly here or select the "Search" option.
Figure 4.4: Path input
In the Search menu, we recommended searching for the source through "Windows Network (SMB)", in order to be able also to write to this source later.
Select the entry: "Windows Network (SMB)". (If this is not available, you can
also select "Add Network Share...".) There, you navigate through the folder
structure until you reach the folder that contains your music and then click on
OK on the left of the screen.

4.3 Add files in UPNP database
To add a folder to the UPNP database, go in the music folder on the Chronolog
to the desired folder, as this is blue highlighted. Then you open with the C
button the context menu and select "Scan item to library". Then all files with
ID tag would be included in the database and are then available via UPNP.

4.4.2 Without Internet
If you are working without an Internet connection for your Chronolog, it
makes sense to deactivate the CD alignment with freedb, so that you don’t
get an error message each time you are ripping music from a CD. However, we
recommend making an Internet connection available for your Chronolog, so
that CDs can be named automatically and so that the cover artwork can be
downloaded. Go to: Main menu -> Settings -> Music -> Music CDs. There,
change the entry Align audio CD track names with freedb.org such that
with Internet it is blue and without Internet it is grey.

5. Trigon-Touch Remote Control
5. Trigon-Touch Remote Control
There are several ways of controlling the Chronolog. For instance, through
the operating elements on the front of the device, through the TV menu or
through the browser on a network-capable device such as an iPad, mobile phone,
computer, etc.
In order to be able to use the Chronolog’s browser remote control, you
need a network connection to the Chronolog. This can be done through
a router or directly through a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). The
"Trigon-Touch" browser remote control is called through the Chronolog’s
IP address. The Chronolog’s IP address can be found in the Chronolog
Main menu under System Information -> Network. This address is entered and
called through the browser address line. If you are using a WLAN router with
which the Chronolog and your remote control device are already connected,
you don’t have to establish a new connection to the Chronolog.
5.1 WLAN connection with the iPad
In order to be able to operate the Chronolog with the iPad, a network
connection has to be established between the iPad and the Chronolog.
This can be done through your router or through a direct connection to
the Chronolog. If your iPad is already connected to your router and the
Chronolog has a cabled connection to the router, you can skip to point
5.1.4.
22
5. Trigon-Touch Remote Control
5.1.1 Direct connection
Go to the Settings function of your
iPad to open a direct connection to the
Chronolog.
Figure 5.1: iPad Home
5.1.2 WLAN selection
Figure 5.2: iPad WLAN 1
First, tap on WLAN. After a short
time, the iPad should display
the Chronolog’S WLAN. (The
Chronolog must be switched on and
be displaying its Main menu. Additionally, both antennae must be connected.)
As soon as the Chronolog’S serial
number is displayed, tap on the entry.
This starts the process for establishing
a connection and you will be asked to
enter the connection password. The
factory setting for this is: 1234567890.
The connection is set up once you have
entered and confirmed the password. If
the connection setup is successful, a tick
appears in front of the Chronolog
WLAN. Now tap on the blue arrow to
the right of the Chronolog WLAN.
23
5. Trigon-Touch Remote Control
5.1.3 Automatic connection
In order that the iPad always automatically re-establishes the connection to the
Chronolog, you have to activate the
"Autom. connection" option. This completes the settings and you can return
to the iPad Home screen by tapping on
the iPad button (Home button).

5.3 CD player view
After you have inserted a CD in the
Chronolog’s CD drive, you can play
and stop the CD by tapping on the corresponding Play/Stop icons in the bar
at the bottom of the CD player view.
Tapping on the red icon starts the copy
process that copies the CD onto the
Chronolog. Tapping on "Back" takes
you back to the Home view. In order
to save you having to refer to the manual each time you want an explanation
of the function of a particular icon, we
have added a Help icon that you can
tap on to access an explanation of the
individual functions.

progressed on the CD
• 3. How far the copy process has
progressed on the current track.
