WARNING
CAUTION!
Keep this system away from rain and moisture!
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE READ THIS USER MANUAL CAREFULLY
BEFORE YOUR INITIAL START-UP!
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Every person involved with the installation, operation and maintenance of this system has to:
be qualified
follow the instructions of this manual
CAUTION! Be careful with your operations.
With a dangerous voltage you can suffer
a dangerous electric shock when touching the wires!
Before you initial start-up, please make sure that there is no damage caused by transportation. Should there
be any, consult your dealer and do not use the system.
To maintain perfect condition and to ensure a safe operation, it is absolutely necessary for the user to follow
the safety instructions and warning notes written in this manual.
Please consider that damages caused by manual modifications to the system are not subject to warranty.
This system contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer servicing to qualified technicians only.
IMPORTANT:
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any resulting damages caused by the non-observance of
this manual or any unauthorized modification to the system.

Never let the power-cord come into contact with other cables! Handle the power-cord and all
connections with the mains with particular caution!
Never remove warning or informative labels from the unit.
Never use anything to cover the ground contact.
Never leave any cables lying around.
Do not insert objects into air vents.
Do not connect this system to a dimmerpack.
Do not switch the system on and off in short intervals, as this would reduce the system’s life.
Do not open the device and do not modify the device.
Only use system indoor, avoid contact with water or other liquids.
Avoid flames and do not put close to flammable liquids or gases.
Always disconnect power from the mains, when system is not used. Only handle the power-cord by
the plug. Never pull out the plug by tugging the power-cord.
Make sure you don’t use the wrong kind of cables or defective cables.

Please turn off the power switch, when changing the power cord or signal cable, or select the input
mode switch.
Extreme frequency boosts in connection with a high input signal level may lead to overdriving your
equipment. Should this occur, it is necessary to reduce the input signal level by using the INPUT
control.
To emphasize a frequency range, you don’t necessarily have to move its respective sliding control
upward; try lowering surrounding frequency ranges instead. This way, you avoid causing the next
piece of equipment in your sound path to overdrive. You also preserve valuable dynamic reserve
(“headroom”)
Avoid ground loops! Always be sure to connect the power amps and the mixing console to the same
electrical circuit to ensure the same phase!
If system is dropped or struck, disconnect mains power supply immediately. Have a qualified
engineer inspect for safety before operating.
If the system has been exposed to drastic temperature fluctuation (e.g. after transportation), do not
switch it on immediately. The arising condensation water might damage your system. Leave the
system switched off until it has reached room temperature.
If your Dap Audio device fails to work properly, discontinue use immediately. Pack the unit securely
(preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your Dap Audio dealer for service.
Repairs, servicing and electric connection must be carried out by a qualified technician.
For replacement use fuses of same type and rating only.
WARRANTY: Till one year after date of purchase.
OPERATING DETERMINATIONS
If this system is operated in any other way, than the one described in this manual, the product may suffer
damages and the warranty becomes void.
Any other operation may lead to dangers like short-circuit, burns, electric shock, etc.
You endanger your own safety and the safety of others!
Improper installation can cause serious damage to people and property !!

applied to the track. When the slider is in the center position, zero pitch is being applied to the track and the
PITCH PERCENTAGE INDICATOR (40) will read zero.
If the PITCH fader (19) is set to a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue
to the maximum of -/+16% and then return to the original 2% pitch when the button is released.
If the (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (18) is held down continuously, the disc speed will increases and will
continue to increase until reaches a maximum of 16% speed gain.
13. CREATING AND PLAYING A LOOP
A loop is a sound clip that plays continuously between two points. You can use this loop to create a

OUT button LED (16) will start flashing, indicating the LOOP mode has been activated.
LOOP INDICATORS
During a loop, the IN button LED (9) and OUT button LED (16) will begin to flash indicating the LOOP mode
has been activated. A loop will remain in memory until a new loop is made or the unit has been powered
down or disc is removed. When a loop remains in the memory, but has been deactivated, the IN button LED
(9) and OUT button LED (16) will light red.
EXITING A LOOP
To exit a LOOP when a loop is active, press the OUT button (11). The IN button (10) and OUT button (11)
LEDs will remain on, but they stop flashing. Music playback will resume its normal play. The IN button (10)
and OUT button (11) LEDs will remain on, to remind you that a loop is stored in memory.
REACTIVATING LOOP
To reactivate a LOOP that is stored in memory but is not playing, press the OUT button (11). The IN button
LED (9) and OUT button LED (16) will begin flashing, indicating the LOOP has been activated.
14. SWITCHING BETWEEN SINGLE AND CONTINUOUS PLAY MODES
This unit allows you to switch your play mode between single and continuous.
Continuous mode allows the seamless CD playback without interruption.
Single mode will play a track and cue to the next track when the previous track has ended. In certain
situations this may be useful to prevent unintentional playback of an unwanted track. To switch between the
playback modes press the SGL/CTN Button (4).
Mode Indicator: The "SINGLE" INDICATOR (39) will show in the LCD screen (3) when the unit is in
