INSTALLATION
©
Check that your mains supply voltage
agrees with the voltage setting indicated
on the rear panel of the unit.
If your mains supply voltage is different,
consult your Arcam dealer.
MAINS SAFETY
This product 1s normally supplied with
a moulded mains plug already fitted to
the lead. If for any reason the plug
needs to be removed, it must be
disposed of immediately and
securely, as it is a potential shock
hazard when inserted into a mains
socket.
If the plug is removed then the
remaining lead must be rewired as
follows:
The blue wire must be connected to
the terminal which is coloured blue or
marked with the letter N.
The brown wire must be connected to
the terminal which is coloured brown
or marked with the letter L.
The green and yellow wire must be
connected to the terminal which 1s
coloured greem and yellow, or
marked with the letter E or the safety
earth symbol.
When replacing the fuse in the supplied
moulded mains plug, the integral fuse
holder/cover must always be refitted.
Warning: This apparatus must be
earthed.
MAINS SUPPLY CONNECTIONS
©
Insert the IEC line socket of the mains
lead fully into the power inlet socket on
the rear panel. Connect the other end
to your mains supply.
For optimum sonic performance, the
analogue power supply of the CD
player is kept powered up all the time
the unit is connected to the mains
supply. The front panel power switch
powers down all other circuitry leaving
the analogue sections in "standby".
This means that even though the power
switch is off, it may be possible to hear
a slight residual hum emanating from
the mains transformer inside the CD
player. This is perfectly normal. If the
unit is to be left unused for an extended
period, we recommend that it is
disconnected from the mains supply by
switching it off at the wall socket.

DIGITAL AND AUDIO CONNECTIONS
©
DIGITAL OUTPUTS - For use with a
separate digital to analogue converter
(DAC) or digital recorder. Connect to
the unit's digital input using a suitable
digital cable. Both outputs are identical
and can be connected simultaneously if
necessary.
AUDIO OUTPUT - Connect to your
amplifiers CD or AUX input using a
suitable interconnect cable.
Insert the red phono plugs into the
sockets labelled 'R' and the other plugs
into the sockets labelled 'L'.
DELTA 250 ONLY
DIGITAL CONNECTIONS
The Delta 250 is fitted with a choice of 3
digital connectors.
Use the appropriate
connector for your DAC.
©
PHONO OUTPUT - Connect to the
DAC's digital input using a suitable
digital cable. Both outputs are identical
and can be connected simultaneously if
necessary.
BNC OUTPUT - Connect to your
DAC's BNC digital input (if fitted)
using a suitable digital cable. This
output generally gives better results
than output ©.
OPTICAL OUTPUT - Connect to
your DAC's optical input (if fitted)
using a suitable Toslink type optical
cable, You should try digital outputs
O, Y and optical output O to
determine which you prefer.
SYNC LOCK INPUT - Connect to an
Arcam Black Box fitted with the Sync
Lock facility using a suitable Toslink
type optical cable. The Sync Lock
connection synchronises the Delta 250
and the Black Box automatically, The
Sync Lock led (light emitting diode) on
the Black Box's front panel will confirm
this.
Using the Sync Lock connection
removes the timing errors generated in
the digital signal connections, and
should be used in order to achieve the
very best sound quality.
PORT FOR AT&T OPTICAL
OUTPUT MODULE - The AT&T
optical system offers superior sound
quality compared to the Toslink system
due to its wider bandwidth. It has the
advantage over the co-axial outputs by
being virtually interference free.
[t can rival, and in many cases surpass
the quality of the co-axial outputs. If
your DAC is fitted with an AT&T
input you may wish to take advantage
of its benefits. The AT&T module is
available as an optional extra, and can
be supplied and fitted by an Arcam
dealer.
