Before you can use this product
Before you can use your internet radio, you must have the following:
●A broadband Internet connection (not required for DAB, FM or Music
Player functions).
●A wireless access point (WiFi) or a wired Ethernet connection connected
to your broadband Internet Service Provider, preferably via a router.
In many cases the broadband modem, router and wireless access
point will be a single combined unit supplied by your Internet Service
Provider or bought from a computer store.
●If your wireless network is configured to use Wired Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) or WiFi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) data encryption then you
either need to know the WEP, WPA or WPA2 key used for encryption so
you can get the internet radio to communicate with the network, or your
router needs to offer WiFi Protected Setup (WPS).
If connecting using WiFi, the internet radio will typically work within a 1020 metre radio from your wireless access point. The actual range achieved
will depend upon the building type, other nearby wireless network, and
possible interference sources. DAB and FM radio functions can operate
wherever the internet radio is able to receive a suitable broadcast signal.
IMPORTANT:
Before you continue, make sure that your wireless access point or router
is powered up and working with your broadband Internet service (use your
computer to verify this). To get this part of the system working you must
read the instructions supplied with the wireless access point or router.

Remote control functions
Most of the functions of the SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) radio can be controlled using either the
panel or the remote control. However, there are a few functions which are only accessible using
the remote control.
These are:
CD track access by numbers
Audio mute
DAB/FM auto-tune
CD/SD/USB random function
As with the front panel, some operations require a longer operation of the button (explained in the
relevant sections). In this case simply keep your finger held on the remote controlbutton for 2-3
seconds until the display on the radio shows that the command has been accepted.
GB
Network remote control options
Network Pin setup (Pin number)
Your radio has the option of being controlled by an application installed on an Apple iPhone, iPod
touch or iPod. The Pin number facility allows you to ensure that your radio can only be controlled
by your own Apple device rather than someone else’s.
The remote control application is called UNDOK and is available from the Apple App Store and
Google Play Store for your device. Details of how this feature can be used are explained in the
later section.
The default PIN is '1234' and is entered in the UNDOK application on your device when it first
connects to your radio. You may change the PIN if desired using the 'NetRemote PIN Setup'
option in the Network settings menu. The updated PIN should then be used to reconnect the
radio to the application.

Keep network connected
By default, your radio will shut down its WiFi connection when it is in standby. This minimizes
power consumption but it does mean that you will need to switch that radio on manually in order
to use the remote control software.
If you need to be able to remotely control the radio even when it has been put into standby, then
you can choose to keep the network connected by using the ‘Keep network connected’ option in
the network setting menu. In the standby mode display either the WiFi signal indicator is shown
with or without a cross through it according to the chosen network settings.

This page describes the basic means of controlling your SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) internet radio.
Instructions for each operating mode are given in the later section of this book.
1.Pressing the Standby button brings your radio out of Standby mode. Pressing Standby while
the radio is in use will cause it to return to the Standby mode with the clock display.
2.Pressing the Radio button gives you access to each of the operating modes in turn: FM, Auxin, Internet radio, Spotify and DAB.
3.Pressing the Media button gives you access to each of the operating modes in turn: USB, SD,
Bluetooth, Music player and CD.
4.Pressing and holding the Info/Menu button will access the menu system. The info button also
allows the display of information relating to the radio station or music file being played.
5.Many operations require the user to make a selection from the menu. Highlight the menu item
using the Tuning Up or Tuning Down buttons on the panel (alternatively, the Folder Up or Folder
Down buttons on the remote control handset). Press the Select button to select that item. If there
are more than five items in a menu, then the display will automatically scroll up or down so that
the additional items become visible. If there are many items in a menu, then the radio allows the
menu to “wrap around” in either direction. This can make it easier to reach items at the end of a
long menu, such as a list of countries or Internet radio stations.
6.If an error is made when navigating the menus, it is generally possible to go back to a higher
level menu by pressing the Back button.
Although controls on the Internet radio are shown, all functions are also available using the
remote control.

Connecting your radio to your computer network
1.Place your radio on a flat surface and plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the
back of your radio ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
2.If you wish to use a wired network connection, plug the Ethernet cable into the socket at the
back of the radio.
3.Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch on the wall socket.
IMPORTANT:
The mains plug is used as the means of connecting the radio to the mains supply. The mains
socket used for the radio must remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect
the radio from the mains completely, the mains plug should be removed from the mains socket
outlet completely.
4.W hen you apply power, the display on the radio will light up and say: ‘SANGEAN’
and‘STARTING’ with a progress indicator. The first time that you use your radio (or after
Factory Reset) the display will show “Setup wizard” and “YES” will be highlighted on the
screen. Press the Select button to start the setup wizard. The screen will ask if you wish to run
the setup wizard again at the next start up. This will lead to the main menu.
5.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or Down
buttons on the remote control handset) to highlight the desired clock format (either 12 Or 24
hour) then press the Select button to enter your selection. A menu allowing you to specify
the auto update option for the clock will appear on the display. The default of ‘Update from
Network’ will be the best option for most users.

6.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or Down
buttons on the remote control handset) to choose an auto-update option for the clock. This
can be updated from DAB or FM radio, from the Network, or not updated. The default is to
auto update from the network. If you choose any other option, go to step 9. Otherwise you
will first need to select the correct time zone and daylight savings setting, see steps 7 and
8. If you choose “No update” you will need to set the clock manually later (see the section of
‘Manually setting the clock’). Press the Select button to confirm your choice.
7.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (Folder Up or Down buttons on the
remote control handset) to highlight the time zone which is applicable to your location. Press
the Select button to enter the setting.
8.You will then need to set the Daylight Savings option according to your location (Daylight
Savings is also known as Summer/Winter time). Press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the
remote control handset to highlight “YES” to turn on daylight savings if required or ‘NO’ if you
do not wish to use daylight savings then press the Select button to confirm the setting.
9.After setting the Daylight Savings options, the display will show the 'Keep network
connected?' option. You should choose 'Yes' if you wish to keep the radio connected to the
network when it is in Standby mode. This will allow remote control software to switch on your
radio when needed. If you choose 'No' then your radio will shut down its WiFi connection
when it is in Standby, DAB or FM modes. This minimises power consumption but it does
mean that you will need to switch the radio on manually in order to use either Spotify
Connect, the 'Play to' function or any remote control software such as UNDOK app. Press
the Folder up/down button to highlight the required option and then press the Select button to
make the selection.
10.The display will then show a list of WiFi regional options for the network set up. Press the
TuningUp or Down buttons on the panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or Down buttons on
the remote control handset) to highlight the required region and then press the Select button
to select it. Do this even if planning to use the wired Ethernet connection. Your radio will
then scan for available WiFi networks. If using WiFi we recommend that the WiFi antenna is
positioned vertically.
11.The radio will enter the Network Settings Wizard and will display ‘Scanning…’. After a short
while the display will show a list of the available WiFi networks. If you are intending to use the
WiFi connection, go to step 12.

If your network allows automatic configuration (which is normal) the radio will acquire a
network address. The screen should say ‘Connecting…’, and then ‘Setup wizard completed’.
Press the Select button to exit the setup wizard and show the main menu.
There are two indicator lights incorporated into the connector. If you have problems with your
wired connection, they may help you to identify the possible cause of the problem.
Yellow ON = Link established; OFF = no connection
Yellow Flashing = Data transfer
Green ON = 100 Mbits/sec link; OFF = 10 Mbits/sec ilnk
If your network does not support automatic configuration or if you wish to set it up manually
then you should select ‘[Manual config]’ instead of selecting ‘[Wired]’ in the Network Wizard.
12.If you plan to use a WiFi connection, you will first need to identify your network in the list of
network names presented by the Network Wizard. If no networks are found then you may
have to get your wireless router working (please see the instructions supplied with it) or
you may be too far from the router. When the radio finds your wireless network, it displays
the Network Name (SSID) for the wireless access point on the screen. This is a name that
is allocated to the access point in your router by the person who set up the network – for
example: ‘Jones family’ or ‘Paul’s network’. If the router supports WiFi Proteced Setup, then
‘[WPS]’ will be shown in front of the SSID. It is possible, and in some locations highly likely,
that your radio will find more than one wireless network, in which case you should choose
which one you need to connect to.
13.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset (alternatively, Tuning
Up or Down buttons on the panel) to see the SSID for each wireless network that has been
found. If your network is shown proceed to step 15 on the next page. If it is not shown then
proceed to step 14 If you make a mistake at any point, use the Back button to go back to the
previous screen.

14.If your network is not found, it may be because the router is configured not to broadcast the
SSID. You should then use the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset and
Select buttons to highlight and select the ‘[Manual config]’ option in order to enter the network
details manually. This is described in ‘Manual Network Configuration”. If your network name
is being broad cast, and it was not found, then try re-scanning press the Back button), and if
necessary try moving your radio to a location closer to your access point/router.
15.When the SSID for the wireless network you wish to connect to is highlighted on the screen,
press the Select button. If WiFi Pretected Setup (WPS) was indicated, you will see an
additional menu at this point, otherwise proceed to step 15. Choose one of the WPS menu
options as required for your router (WPS may be via push button, or using an identification
number). ‘Push Button’ – the display prompts you to press the WPS button on your router and
then the Select button on the radio. The two devices should then connect with the encryption
key sent automatically to the radio. ‘PIN’ – the display shows an identification number
which you must enter into your router using a web browser (refer to your router’s user
documentation). You should then press the Select button on the radio. ‘Skip WPS’ – if you
wish to enter the encryption key yourself (or if it was previously Entered). If you choose Push
Button or PIN the screen will then show ‘Connecting…’ and then ‘Setup wizard completed’.
Press the Select button to exit setup wizard.
16.If your network is configured without an encryption key, the screen should say ‘Connecting…’,
and then ‘Setup wizard completed’. Press the Select button to exit the setup wizard and show
the main menu. If this is the case then you have successfully connected your radio to your
network.
17.If the screen displays ‘Key’, it is because the network is using one of the encryption systems:
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or WiFi Protected Access (WPA). You will need to enter the
correct WEP or WPA key into the radio to allow it to communicate with your wireless network.
If you do not have the WEP or WPA key, then you should obtain it from the person who set
up your network. Some wireless routers may come with an encryption key already set up by
the supplier, in which case you should refer to the documentation provided with it. WPA is
used here to also include WPA2. WEP keys are 10 or 26 characters long (using 0 – 9, and A – F).
Some wireless Routers can also use pass-phrases for WEP but these are not supported. WPA
keys are usually set up using a pass-phrase of between 8 and 63 characters. Your radio accepts
pass-phrases for WPA keys.

the available characters as well as the three controls on the right. The character currently
highlighted will be entered when you press the Select button. Do this as needed until the
complete key has been entered. Remember, WEP keys only use the numbers 0-9 and letters
A-F. WPA keys are sensitive to upper and lower case characters. You must enter the key
exactly or the radio will not connect to the network. The three controls on the right-hand
side of the screen have special functions. You can quickly access these by pressing the Info
button and then use the Up or Down and Select buttons as needed:
select ‘

If a WEP or WPA key has previously been entered for the selected SSID then the display will
show ‘Key: [Set]’. If you have previously entered a different key, you must clear this by
selecting the ‘
’ symbol. This will remove the ‘[Set]’ indication. After the final character of
the WEP or WPA key has been entered, highlight the ‘ ’ symbol and press the Select
button. Then screen will show ‘Connecting…’ and then ‘Setup wizard completed’. Press the
Select button to the exit setup wizard. The radio should now be able to connect to the
network.
19.Once you have connected your radio to the network (and therefore also to the Internet) it will
display the main menu. Press the Standby button to put the radio in Standby mode. It should
then display the time as obtained from the Internet. If the time display is not correct for any
reason, it can easily be adjusted later, see ‘Manually setting the clock’. If you have followed
the steps on the preceding pages successfully, your radio will have connected to your router,
and then made a connection to the Internet and set its clock. If this is the case, then you can
try listening to radio stations via the Internet.

If you do not wish to use DHCP for automatic configuration, or if your network is configured with a
hidden SSID, then you will need to enter some network settings manually. (Note – a hidden SSID
may prevent casual observers from detecting your network, but is not recommended as a means
of network security.)
1.From the radio Network settings menu, select ‘Manual settings’. You must then choose whether
to connect using ‘Wired’ or ‘Wireless’ connections. If you choose ‘Wireless’ there are as many
as nine settings screens, shown by the ‘1 of 9’ progress marker in the top right corner of the
display. If you choose ‘Wired’ there are five screens and the progress marker will reflect this,
although the steps to set up the network parameters are basically the same.
2.The next menu asks whether you wish to use DHCP to configure your network parameters (IP
address, subnet mask, gateway address, etc). Unless you are familiar with networking and
related terminology, we recommend that you allow the use of DHCP. Choose ‘DHCP enable’
unless you need to specify the network details manually. If you have chosen ‘Wired’ and then
‘DHCP enable’, your radio should now establish a connection to the router using the Ethernet
cable. Please skip to setp11. If you chose ‘Wireless’ and ‘DHCP enable’, please skip to step
6 in order to set up the wireless connection details. If you chose ‘DHCP disable’ for either
connection method, the next step is to set up the IP address.
3.The manually specified IP address should be chosen to be compatible with the settings in your
router and must be a unique address on your network. If you are using DHCP for some devices
and static (manually configured) IP addresses for others, the IP address used should fall outside
the range that the router may allocate using DHCP. Typically, the first three groups of digits will
be the same for all devices on your network. To enter the IP address, press the Folder Up or
Down buttons to set the value for each group of digits and then press the Select button or the
Left or Right buttons on the remote control to enter the value and to move on to the next group.
When the IP address has been entered, the subnet mask should be entered. The subnet mask
defines which parts of the IP address are common across your network. For most small networks
the subnet mask will be 255.255.255.0 and this is entered in the same way.
4.T he Gateway address is normally the IP address of the router through which the radio
connects to the internet and is entered in the same way as the previous addresses.

5.In most installations the DNS settings (DNS = Domain Name Server) will be set to the same IP
address as your router. In this case the secondary DNS may be left at zero. To enter the DNS
address, press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control to set the value for each
group of digits and then press the Select button or the Left or Right buttons (on the remote
control) to enter the value and to move on to the next group. Repeat this until all eight groups
of digits have been entered. If you previously specified ‘Wired’ and then ‘DHCP disable’, your
radio should now connect to the router using the Ethernet cable (in which case skip to step 11).
6.If you specified ‘Wireless’, the next step is to set up the WiFi connection, starting with the
name of the wireless network (SSID) followed by the encryption options and password.
To enterthe SSID, characters are selected and entered using the Folder Up or Down, Left
or Right on the remote control and Select buttons. The radio scrolls through the available
characters as well as the three controls on the right. The character currently highlighted will be
entered when you press theSelect button.
Do this as needed until the complete network name has been entered. The SSID setting is
sensitive to upper and lower case characters and symbols. You must enter it exactly as set up
in your router. The three controls on the right-hand side of the screen have special functions.
You can quickly access these by pressing the Info button and then use the Folder Up or Down
and Select buttons on the remote control as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear); Info again to continue
select ‘ ’ when the complete SSID has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the DNS settings screen
7.Having entered the SSID, you must enter details of the encryption system used on your
wireless network. This should be the same as specified in your router settings. If your network
does not use encryption, then select the ‘Open’ option. Your radio should then connect to the
network, so skip to step 11. If your network uses WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) select the
‘Pre-Shared Key’ option then go to step 8. The remaining options are for WPA or WPA2 (WiFi
Protected Access) – see step 9.
8.If you chose ‘Pre-Shared Key’ in step 7, you should then choose the WEP option. The
key should be entered using only the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. The key will be 10
characters long for 64-bit encryption and 26 characters long for 128-bit encryption. The radio
willaccept lower-case letters a-f as equivalent to upper-case A-F. Spaces or special symbols
are not permitted in WEP keys.

select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the SSID settings screen Once the key is
entered the radio should connect to your network. Please skip to step 11.
9.WPA and WPA2 are similar, although WPA2 offers a higher level of security. Whichever
you selected in step 7, you then have to specify the variant used. They are TKIP (Temporal
Key Integrity Protocol) and AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). As previously, the setting
should match that used by your router. Some routers allow both to be specified, and the
router will use whichever variant is supported by the connected device. AES is regarded as
the more secure option if it is available.
The radio will then require you to enter the encryption key. This must be a string of between 8
and 63 characters and must be identical to the key which has been entered into your router.
10.Note – the encryption key is sensitive to the use of upper and lower case letters and symbols.
Take care to enter the key exactly, or the radio will not be able to connect to your router. The
three controls on the right-hand side of the screen have special functions. You can quickly
access these by pressing the Info button and then use the Folder Up or Down and Select
buttons as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear); Info again to
continue
select ‘ ’ when the complete encryption key has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the TKIP/AES options screen Once the key is
entered the radio should connect to the network.
11.W hile the radio is trying to connect to the network, it will display ‘Processing…’ when
checking the encryption key (if using the WiFi connection) and then ‘Connecting…’. If the
connection is made successfully, the radio will return to the Network settings menu. If the
unit cannot connect, then it will display a ‘Failed to connect’ message and will return to the
SSID entry screen (step 6).Once connected, the network settings are stored in the radio. The
settings are retained whenthe radio is disconnected from the mains. You may now use the
Back and Radio or Media buttons to access the functions of your radio.

Internet Radio
Internet Radio – the basics
Before you can use your radio to listen to broadcasts via the Internet, it
is necessary to have connected it to your computer network using either
the wireless (WiFi) connection or the wired Ethernet connection located
on the back of the unit.
There are literally many thousands of radio broadcasts available via
the internet as well ‘Podcasts’. Your radio provides several ways of
searching for broadcasts in order to make finding and choosing them
easier. Once you have found radio stations which you like, you may
either store them as presets within the radio, or add them to a list of
your favorite stations which your radio can access. The number of
presets is limited (there are ten presets on the radio), but you can store
as many favorites as you like.
You may search for an internet radio station by Location. If you know the
name of the station and the country from which a station is broadcast
this may be the easiest method to find a station. It is also a great way to
experience radio from other parts of the world. You may also search for
an internet radio station by Genre.
If you prefer a particular type of music, Blues for example, you may
search for a radio station that broadcasts that type of music, and you
can choose from a list of Blues radio stations regardless of location, or
taking location into account.
If you know part of the name of an internet radio station, you can enter
it into the radio and it will search for stations that match that name. This
can be helpful if you are unsure of the location or genre of a particular
station.
21
The SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) radio connects to a radio station
database which serves many users in many countries. This means that
there is a very wide range of program content available. You can also
search for stations which have been recently added to those available
(new stations) or you can search for the most popular.
Selecting a radio station by location
1.Press the Standby button to switch the radio on. Then press the Radio button to select the
internet radio mode display.
2.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (Alternatively, Folder Up or Down buttons
on the remote control handset) to enter the main Internet radio menu. Press the Tuning Up or
Down buttons on the panel (Alternatively, Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control
handset) until ‘Station list’ is highlighted on the display and then press the Select button to
select the option.
3.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel until ‘Stations’ is highlighted on the display
and then press the Select button. Note that the menu may offer one or more local selections
based upon the country in which the unit is being used, according to your internet IP address
(‘United Kingdom’and ‘BBC’ stations, for example).
4.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel until ‘Location’ is highlighted on the display
and then press the Select button to select.
5.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel to scroll through the list of continents. When
the desired continent is highlighted press the Select button to enter your selection.
6.The display will show a list of countries within the chosen continent. If there are many countries
shown you can scroll through the list continually in either direction. For example, if the chosen
continent was Europe, then to find the United Kingdom scroll up from the top of the list to
the bottom by pressing the Tuning Up button. Press the Select button to choose the desired
country.
7.You will typically find that you then have the option to select either ‘All Stations’ or one of a
number of categories. The lists are always sorted alphabetically, and long lists will wrap around
from top to bottom or bottom to top.

accessed separately from the main Internet Radio menu.
If your radio cannot connect to a radio station
Note:
If your radio is unable to connect to an internet radio station it will generally either display ‘Network
Error’ or ‘Stopped’. This can be for many reasons, but typically Will be due to one of the following:
The radio station may not be broadcasting at the preset time.
The radio station may not be able to accommodate any more connections from internet listeners.
The broadcaster may limit listening to specific countries or regions.
There may be network congestion (either locally or at a distance) which is affecting the reliability of
the connection.
If your radio can connect, but the audio is not continuous and the radio keeps having to
reconnect, this may be due to the radio station only having limited connection capacity.

Selecting a podcast / BBC Listen Again
Some radio stations allow you to listen to programs that have already been broadcast. The BBC’s
Listen Again service is an example of this. In addition, radio broadcasters and individuals may
make programs which are intended normally to be downloaded into a computer or copied onto
a portable media player. These are commonly known as Podcasts. On your radio, both Listen
Again programs and Podcasts are grouped together as Podcasts, and the same menu is used
to access and listen to both types of programming. Listen Again programs are also accessible
viathe Stations menu.
1.Press and hold the Menu button to enter the main Internet radio menu. Press the Tuning Up
or Down buttons on the panel (or the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control) until
‘Station list’ is highlighted on the display and then press the Select button.
2.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (or Folder Up or Down buttons on the
remote control) until ‘Podcasts’ is highlighted on the display and press the Select button.
3.You may then search by location, genre, or using part of the name of the podcast. The
searches operate in exactly the same way as when searching for a conventional radio station.
Searching by location is done first by continent, then by country. You may then list ‘All shows’
or search within a country by genre. Searching by genre is more direct, since once the genre is
chosen the next menu display shows a list of available podcasts. Searching by name operates
in the same way as when searching for a named radio station, selecting the ‘ ’ symbol when
you have entered the text. You may enter one or more pieces of text which will be used for the
search.
4.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel (or the Folder Up or Down buttons on
remote control) and then press the Select button to confirm your chosen podcast. The display
will show ‘Connecting…’ while it finds the new program.

Customizing your radio
In addition to storing your favourite radio stations in the radio presets, your radio allows you to
create customised lists of stations which can appear in two special menus on the radio called
'My Favourites' and 'My Added Stations'. Your radio uses a database which is accessed via the
Internet in order to find out which radio stations are available and how it should connect to them.
You are able to add your personal selections to this database. These will only be accessible
by you using your PC or your radio. You can choose the stations which will appear in the 'My
Favourites' menu from the large selection already listed. Additionally, if you find a radio station
that is not listed then you may also add the Internet address (URL) of the station's audio stream
to your selection.
It will then appear on your radio via the 'My Added Stations' menu item.
Registering an account
1.Open the web site http://www.wifi radio-frontier.com using the Internet browser on your
computer. Click on the ‘Register here’ link and follow the on-screen instructions to register an
account. During the registration process the web site asks for an access code. This allows it
to uniquely identify your internet radio from the many others that it also provides data for. To
obtain the access code, please follow these steps.
2.With your radio switched on and in Internet radio mode, press and hold the Menu button, then
select 'Station list' using the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control and Select
buttons. Scroll down the Station list menu to the item called 'Help'. Press the Select button to
enter the Help menu.
3.In the Help menu, select the menu item ‘Get access code.’ Provided that the radio is connected
to the Internet, a code will be displayed of typically seven characters (Upper case letters and
numbers). Make a note of this code for the next step. If you need to re-register late you must
repeat this process to get a fresh access code.
4.You should then use the code displayed by the radio to fill in the Access Code field on the web
page when you set up your account. Once you have your account set up, if you have other
radios which use the same data base, you may also add them to your account. You will need
to get an access code from each radio in order to add it to the account. They may then share
your favorite and added radio station details.

Music player
Use with Windows, Apple Mac and Linux
The Music Player allows you to play audio fi les which are stored on
computer in your network.
In order to play fi les from a computer on your network, your radio must
connect to a fi le server program on your computer which uses the
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol (often known as DLNA). If
your computer uses Windows 7 or Windows 8 then your computer
already has a UPnP server program available. This is Windows Media
Player (version 12), and it can share your audio fi les with your radio. It
allows you to select files by Album, Artist, and so on using your radio's
controls. Throughout this section, where Windows 8 is mentioned, this
also includes Windows 8.1.
35
Windows Media Player can serve MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV fi les to
your radio. If you are an Apple Mac or Linux user, or if you have your
audio fi les stored in other formats, such as FLAC, there are other UPnP
server programs which you may use with your radio. Note that Apple
computers do not support UPnP streaming natively and that Apple does
not license their own equivalent streaming protocol (DAAP) to third
parties.
The Music Player on the radio can playback audio files in MP3,
WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV formats. WMA Lossless files can also be
played when using Windows Media Player as it will convert these to
a compatible format before streaming them to the radio. Note that the
playback of files encoded using WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional, and
for files which have DRM protection are not supported.
When using a UPnP server, the search and selection criteria are
determined by the server software, but typically include Artist, Album
and Genre. Many server applications also allow you to access your files
according to the folders within which they are stored as well as other
criteria.
Windows Media Player is less flexible than some other UPnP servers,
but is generally easier to set up. It is supplied as a standard component
of windows 7, Vista or XP.
Many UPnP server applications are also capable of sharing pictures
and video files to other network connected devices. if this is the case (as
it is with Windows Media Player 11 and 12) you may see the option of
choosing between ‘Music’, ‘Video’ and ‘Pictures’ on the Music Player’s
Menu. You should only select the ‘Music’ option. Content offered via the
alternative options will not be playable on your radio.
Some third part server application allow customization of the search
criteria and indexing methods. This can useful of you have a very large
collection of store music files.
Here is a short selection of alternative UPnP server applications,
although many other are available.
Twonky Media Server (Windows, Apple Mac, Linux)
TVersity (Windows)
Elgato EyeConnect (for Apple Mac OS X)
Media Tomb (Linux, MAC OS X)
Please refer to the documentation for your chosen server application for
full details of its configuration and usage.
Accessing your audio files via a UPnP server
If your computer is running Windows 7 or 8, then Windows Media Player version 12 includes a
UPnP server which will make your files available to your radio.
If you have Windows Vista or XP (Please refer to the section of ‘Accessing your audio files via
a UPnP server using Windows Vista and XP’). There are other UPnP server solutions available
for non-Windows users and for Windows users who may wish to use an alternative (see the
preceding section).
It is beyond the scope of this instruction book to cover all possible options for UPnP. We explain
the use of Microsoft's Windows Media Player here since that will be the first choice for the
majority of users.
GB
Set up UPnP access with Windows Media Player 12
1.Windows Media Player 12 (referred to here as WMP 12) can create a library from all the media
files available on your PC. To add new media files to the library, select 'Library', then 'Music',
then 'All music' or 'Artist', 'Album' etc. This will show you the current library contents.You may
then simply drag and drop files from other locations into the library. Alternatively, with media
files or folders on the screen, you may right-click on the file or folder and select 'Include in
library' and then select 'Music'. In this way you can quickly add additional content to your music
library.
2.In WMP 12 , click on 'Stream' (see picture at right) and then select 'Automatically allow devices
to play my media'. Then accept the 'Automatically allow all computer and media devices'
option. There are other options (see overleaf) but this is the simplest if you just wish to quickly
enable media streaming to your radio.
3.Press the Standby button to switch the unit on. Then press the Media button as needed until
the Music Player mode display is shown. The main 'Music Player' menu will then be displayed.
36
Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC - cont.
4.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel until 'Shared media' is highlighted and
press the Select button to select. The radio will scan for all available UPnP servers. It may take
a few seconds for the radio to complete its scan. The radio will display '<Empty>' if no UPnP
servers are found.
5.After scanning, select your UPnP server using the Tuning Up or Down and Select buttons on
the panel. If you allowed automatic connection previously, your radio should now connect and
you may skip to the next page. If you did not permit automatic connections, your radio will then
normally display 'Unauthorized' at this stage.
6.Your PC may prompt you that there has been a connection to your UPnP server. Whether
prompted or not, in order that the radio may access the music files, you will need to click the
'Library' tab in WMP 12 and select the 'Stream...' item to open the 'Media Streaming' window.
Select 'Automatically allow devices to play my media' then select 'Automatically allow all
computer and media devices'.
Alternatively select 'More Streaming options' to enable sharing on a 'per device' basis.
7.In the 'More streaming options' window, the radio will be listed as a blocked device. Click on
the button shown to select 'Allowed'.
Note:
If you are using Microsoft Windows' firewall software, this should be correctly configured by
WMP 12. If you are using third party firewall software you may need to manually configure it to
allow your unit and WMP 12 to communicate.
8.On the radio, select the named server again using the Tuning Up or Down and Select buttons.
If WMP 12 is now able to communicate with your radio you will be presented with some media
selection options on the display.

Locating and playing media files using UPnP
Once the UPnP server has been configured to share media files with your radio, you may select
the files that you wish to play as follows:1.Press the Standby button to switch on the unit. Press the Media button as needed until the
Music Player mode display is shown. The main Music Player menu will then be displayed.
2.Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel until 'Shared media' is highlighted on the
display and then press the Select button to cause the radio to scan for UPnP servers. Note
that it may take a few seconds for the radio to complete its scan. The display will return to the
Music Player menu if no UPnP servers are found.
3.After a successful scan, press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel to highlight your
UPnP server and then press the Select button. If the display shows multiple media types,
select 'Music'. (Some UPnP servers can serve pictures and video content to suitable devices.)
4.The radio will now list the media categories which are made available by the UPnP server for example, 'Album', 'Artist' and 'Genre'. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the panel
to highlight which category you wish to browse, then press the Select button to confirm your
choice. If you wish to use the search function press the Tuning Up or Down buttons (on the
panel) until 'Search' is selected on the display. You may select characters to build a keyword
for searching for content to play.
When you first set up sharing with a UPnP server, not all of your files will be available
immediately.
The UPnP server must look inside each file to identify the artist and album information from
'tags' embedded in them. The server may also need time to access the Internet to obtain
additional information such as 'album art' which it can display when you examine your music
library on your PC. For a library of many files this can take some time.

When searching via UPnP you will have a selection of search criteria as determined by the UPnP
server software on your computer. This allows you to search by a given information type (Album,
Artist, Genre, etc.) and then to narrow the search to an album or to a particular track within an
album.
Some UPnP server applications allow the search options to be customized. The searches
described here are just examples of the possibilities.

Display modes
Your radio has a range of display options when in Music Player mode. Note that the availability of
information depends on the specific media files, their format and upon the server capability. (Not
all UPnP servers make information from the media fi les available in the same way.)
1.Press the Info button to cycle through the different options.
a. Progress bar Displays the playback progress for the track currently playing.
b. Artist Displays the artist information for the track currently playing.
c. Album Displays the album information for the track currently playing.
d. Format Displays the bit rate and format of the track currently playing.
e. Buffer
Displays the radios internal buffer status during media playback.
Whenever the Music Player is displaying an information screen (as opposed to a menu screen),
the time is displayed in the top-right corner of the display, and a WiFi strength or Ethernet
connection indicator is shown in the bottom-right corner together with an indicator showing the
radio is obtaining the media from a UPnP server.
The SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) is able to display the album art for the track being played. The
ability of the radio to display art depends on the presence of the art in the fi le being played, the
art being not too large (or being re-sized by the server), and the ability of the UPnP server to
send the art to the radio. Art sent to the radio needs to be in a JPEG format and no larger than
640 x 480 pixels. If the radio does not receive any art then a default icon is displayed. Some
UPnP server applications will also send a default icon if no art is found within the fi le being
played. Some UPnP server applications will be able to re-size the art, if needed, before sending
it to the radio. If the radio expects to receive art but none is provided then no art or icon will be
displayed. Due to the wide variations in album art formats and UPnP/DLNA standards, the failure
of the radio to display album art is not considered to be a fault.

Wake On LAN
If you use a computer as a UPnP server for playing your music files via your radio, you may not
wish to keep that computer running when you are not using the radio. If your computer is suitably
configured, it can either shut down, or enter a standby or hibernation state when it is not being
used.
Your radio can wake up a computer which has shut down using a Wake On LAN command via
the network provided that the radio has previously connected to a UPnP server application on
that computer. A computer which is not currently active will be shown with a question mark in the
list of UPnP servers.
Many computers will not respond to Wake On LAN commands from the radio in all modes, and
may require software, device driver, BIOS, hardware or router configuration changes for this
function to operate. Failure of a computer to respond to Wale On Lan is not considered a fault of
the radio.

Keep network connected
Keep network connected
By default, your radio will shut down its WiFi connection when it is in standby. This minimizes
power consumption but it does mean that you will need to switch that radio on manually in order
to use either the ‘Play to’ function or any other remote control software. If you need to be able
to remotely control the radio even when it has been put into standby, then you can choose to
keep the network connected by using the ‘Keep network connected’ option in the network setting
menu. In the standby mode display either the WiFi signal indicator is shown with or without a
cross through it according to the chosen network settings.
Windows 7’Play to’ function (UPnP renderer)
47
If your use Window 7, it is possible to choose a music album, track or playlist at the computer
and then tell Windows that this should be played on the radio using the ‘Play to’ function. Using
suitable software (sometimes known as a UPnP Control Point), similar functionality is available
for other computer types and for handheld devices using Apple’s iOS or Android operating
systems. In this mode the radio acts as a UPnP Renderer.
1.In order to use the ‘Play to’ function, the radio must be actively connected to the network. The
first time that you use the ‘Play to’ function you will need to allow Windows to recognize your
radio. To do this, please go to step 2. If you have previously used ‘Play to’ so that Windows
remembers your radio and you have configured your radio to keep its network connection in
standby mode, then go to step 3.
2.If your radio is not currently running, or does not have an active connection to your network,
then should first switch on your radio and select the Music player mode. Then select ‘Shared
media’ from the menu so that the radio establishes a connection with Windows Media Player
on your PC. After this step, all other functions may be performed from your computer.
3.At your Windows 7 PC, locate the file, album or playlist that you wish to play on the radio.
4.Use the right-hand mouse button to pop-up a menu of option for the chosen item and select
the ‘Play to’ option.
5.Windows should show you one or more devices, including your radio, to which you may
choose to send the music. Highlight the radio item and click with the left mouse button.

6.Windows will then open a ‘Play to’ window showing the track or tracks to be played. Your
computer will then take control of your radio. Your radio will then enter the Digital Media
Renderer mode (DMR) and after a few seconds the radio will start playing. The display on the
radio will show that it is in DMR mode.
7.While the radio is playing in DMR mode you can use the controls in the ‘Play to’ window on
your computer to skip tracks, fast-forward or rewind, to pause or restart, and to change the
volume on the radio. You may also use the controls on your radio to adjust volume, display
track information (press the Info button) or to change operating mode. It is not possible to skip
tracks or pause playback using the radio’s controls while it is in DMR mode.
8.While playing, you may select additional content within Windows and again use the ‘Play to’
function (see step 3-5). The additional tracks will be added to the playlist in the current ‘Play to’

Streaming data rate - Spotify Connect
Your radio can change different music streaming quality when you stream content from Spotify. If
your internet connection has a low data usage allowance, or has a relatively low maximum data
rate, it is strongly suggested that your radio uses a lower streaming quality (data rate) for Spotify
connections. In some cases this may allow more reliable streaming, although some loss of audio
quality will occur.
The data rate used for Spotify Connect is confi gured on a web browser.
1.You need to access the radio's confi guration web page following the steps below:
Access the menu for the current mode by pressing and holding the Menu button> Select
“System settings”> Select “Network”> Select “View settings”> Use the Select button to enter
the “View settings” and IP address is shown on the display> Note down the IP address shown
on the display for the next stage> Ensure that your computer/Smartphone is on the same
network as the radio. Enter the IP address noted above into the address bar of your web
browser.
2.When you enter the radio’s configuration web page, the top page allows you to choose the
streaming quality (96k/160k/320k). The selected streaming quality will be applied when your
radio streams music from a new playlist of Spotify.

tracks.
Note:
1)If 2 Bluetooth devices, pairing for the first time, both search for your radio, it will show its
availability on both devices. However, if one device links with this unit first, then the other
Bluetooth device won't find it on the list.
2)If you take your source device out of range, the connection will be temporarily disconnected
to your radio. Your radio will automatically reconnect if the source device is brought back in
range. Be aware that during the period of disconnection, no other Bluetooth device can pair or
link with your radio.
3)If ‘SmartLink 9” shows in your Bluetooth device list but your device cannot connect with it,
please delete the item from your list and pair the device with the radio again following the
steps described previously.
4)The effective operation range between the system and the paired device is approximately 10
meters (30 feet). Any obstacle between the system and the device can reduce the operational
range.

MP3 / WMA CD Mode
The SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3 and WMA
files. It is assumed in this section that a file is equivalent to a CD track.
An MP3/WMA CD may not contain more than 512 files and not more than 99 folders. MP3 and
WMA files should be created with an audio sample rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal for files created
from CD audio content). MP3 and WMA data rates up to 320 kilobits per second are supported.
WMA Lossless files are not supported. The unit will not play files which include digital rights
management (DRM) protection.
When burning CD-R and CD-RW discs with audio files, various problems may arise which could
lead to problems with playback. Typically such problems are caused by poor CD writing or audio
encoding software, or by the hardware settings of the PC's CD writer, or by the CD being used.
Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD writer or software
manufacturer or look in their product documentation for relevant information. When you are
making audio CDs, take care to observe all legal guidelines and ensure that the copyright of third
parties is not infringed.
1.To select the CD mode press the Media button until 'CD' shows on the display, or insert a
suitably prepared CD-R or CD-RW disc.
2.Insert a CD with printed side facing up into the CD slot. The disc will be loaded automatically.
The unit will check the CD type and load its track list. The display will show "reading" as the
information is read. If there are many files or folders on the CD then it may take some tens of
seconds to read all of the file and folder names and to identify those which are playable (with
.mp3 or .wma filename extension).

Recording to SD / USB
Your SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) radio has been designed to allow you to make recordings to SD/
SDHC cards or to USB connected memory devices. Recordings are made in MP3 format at 128k
bits per second.
SD/SDHC or USB memory media must use the FAT32 file system in order to operate with the
SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT). Such media is usually supplied already formatted or can be formatted
using a PC with a suitable card reader (for SD/SDHC cards) or USB connection (for USB
memory).
It is possible to record onto media which already contains files written by the radio or using your
computer. The recorded files will be added to those already present on the media.
GB
Making a recording
1.Select the desired source for the recording (Internet Radio, DAB, FM, CD, etc.). Internet Radio
is shown in the illustration. Set the volume to the required listening level (the volume of the
recording will not be affected by this).
2.Insert the media on to which the recording is to be made.
3.Press the Record button. The display will show "Record initial...". Recording will then start with
the recording source shown on the display. If only one media type is present, then after a short
while recording will start. If both SD and USB media are detected, then the radio will default to
the option previously set. The default media option is accessed through the 'System settings'
menu then by selecting 'Rec default dest.'. Select 'SD card' or 'USB' memory as needed.

Making a recording cont.
If recording from a CD, recording will be started from the beginning of the currently playing track.
Each track on the CD will be recorded as a separate file on the media.
4.In order to stop the recording press the Record button once more.Recording will stop and a file
will have been written to the storage media.
Files that have been written to the media are held in a folder called "RECORD". Recordings are
held in sub-folders according to the source used for the recording.
The illustration shows the folders as they may appear on a PC running Windows with files in the
CD folder being shown on the right.
Note:
The SD card/USB memory device should only be removed when recording is stopped. Removing
media while recording is in progress may corrupt data on the card leading to the loss of files
previously written.
The USB connection is primarily intended to be used to allow the SmartLink 9 (DDR-66BT) to
play MP3 and WMA files from solid-state flash memory devices. You may be able to play files
which have been stored on a USB hard disc drive (but the drive must have its own power supply).
If you wish to play files from another music player, then we recommend that this is connected to
the Auxiliary input socket.

Clock and Alarms
Automatically updating the clock
Your radio will normally update the clock automatically when connected to the internet. If you enter a
time setting manually, the radio will calculate a local time offset which is then stored in memory.
Whenever it synchronizes the clock using the internet, including after a power failure, your radio will
then set the clock automatically using this information. You may wish to use the radio away from
the internet, in which case you may specify that the unit sets its clock from DAB or FM radio broadcasts.
After a power failure the radio will then set its clock the next time that you turn on the radio in DAB or
FM mode. Alternatively you may specify that the time is not automatically updated. In this case the
clock must always be set manually after a power interruption.
1.With your radio switched on, press and hold the Menu button to access the menu for the
current mode.
2.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'System settings' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to enter the system settings menu.
3.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Time/Date' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to enter the time setup.
4.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Auto update' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to enter the auto-update menu.
5.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons to choose an update option from 'Update from DAB',
'Update from FM', 'Update from Network' or 'No update' as required. Press the Select button to
confirm your choice. The radio will then exit to the previous menu display.

Please be aware that the sensitivity of headphones can vary widely. We therefore recommend
setting volume to a low level before connecting headphones to the radio. It is also recommended
to reduce the volume before unplugging your headphones.
Important:
Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long periods .
Line out socket (3.5mm Jack)
A 3.5mm Line Out socket located on the rear of your radio is provided for connecting the audio
signal to an external amplifier. Inserting an audio cable into this socket will not mute the internal

Software update
From time to time, new software features for your radio may be developed. Your radio has therefore
been designed to allow its internal software to be updated using your Internet connection.You
should not attempt to update your radio unless it is recommended to you by Sangean Customer
Services. Updating the software may remove all network settings, radio station presets and alarm
settings from your radio. It is important that you do not attempt this procedure unless you have a
good Internet connection and a reliable mains power supply. If the radio connects to your router
using a WiFi connection, make sure that this is also reliable before proceeding.
1.The 'Software update' option is accessed via the 'System settings' menu. When you select '
Software update' the menu will display 'Auto check setting' and 'Check now'. If you want your

want your radio to check for updates select the 'NO' option.
2.To check if there are any software updates available currently, press the Folder Up or Down
buttons to highlight 'Check now' and then press the Select button. The radio will check to see
if an update is available. The display will show 'Checking for new versions'. If there are no
updates then the display will show 'Software up to date'. If a software update is available your
radio will then offer the choice of updating the software or not, displaying 'New version available.
Update software?'. Select the 'YES' option if you wish to go through the update process.
3.If you choose to update your radio it will first download the new software and will then reprogram
its internal memory. This may take a few minutes depending on the speed of your internet
connection.
4.Once the software update is completed, the radio will prompt you to press Select to restart.
Press the Select button and your radio will then restart. You may find that you will need to
reconfigure your network connection following an update. You may also need to re-enter all
radio station presets, alarm settings, and configuration options.
VERY IMPORTANT:
Do not switch off the power to the radio until the update operation is complete and the radio has
restarted, otherwise the unit may become permanently damaged.

Network profiles
Each time that you connect your radio to a WiFi network, the radio will store the details of that
connection (SSID, security key, DHCP/IP address settings) as a profile. Up to four such profiles
are stored in the radio so that if the unit is used in multiple locations there is no need to enter the
network settings when returning to a location previously visited. The radios stores the four most
recent profiles in memory identified by their SSID. Normally the radio will attempt to connect to
one of the stored profiles and only if it is unable to do so will you need to use the Network Wizard.
In the event that you visit a location only once you may wish to delete the profile for the network
in that location to avoid losing other profiles.
1.Access the menu for the current mode by pressing and holding the Menu button. Press the
Folder Up or Down buttons until 'System settings' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to enter the settings menu.
2.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Network' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to enter the Network settings menu.
3.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Network profile' is highlighted on the display. Press the
Select button to see the stored profiles. The profile which is currently in use (if any) is marked
with an asterisk.
4.To remove a profile from memory, press the Folder Up or Down buttons to highlight the profile
to be deleted and then press the Select button.
5.The radio will offer a 'YES' or 'NO' selection. Press the Folder Up or Down buttons to select 'YES'
and then press the Select button. The selected profile will be deleted.
Note: that it is not possible to delete a profile which is currently in use.

Accessing your audio files via a UPnP server using Windows Vista and XP
If your computer is running Windows Vista or XP, then Windows Media Player version 11 includes
a UPnP server which will make your files available to your radio. There are other UPnP server
solutions available for non-Windows users and for Windows users who may wish to use an
alternative (see the section of Use with Windows, Apple Mac and Linux). It is beyond the scope
of this instruction book to cover all possible options for UPnP. We explain the use of Microsoft's
Windows Media Player here since that will be the first choice for the majority of users.

Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC
1.If your PC is running Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows XP then you can use Microsoft's
Windows Media Player version 11 to act as your UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) media server.
If not already installed on your PC, Windows Media Player 11 may be downloaded from
Microsoft’s web site and installed by following the instructions detailed in its installation wizard,
or by using Microsoft's Windows Update facility.
2.Once installed, Windows Media Player 11 can create a library from all the media files available
to it on your PC. To add new media files to the library, select the 'Library' tab, then 'Add to
Library… > Advanced Options', click 'Add', choose the files you wish to add and click ‘OK’.
The next step is to connect your radio to Windows Media Player 11 and to configure the
program to allow the radio to access your media library.
3.Press the Standby button to switch the unit on. Then press the Media button as needed until
the Music Player mode display is shown. The main 'Music Player' menu will then be displayed.

Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC - cont.
4.Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Shared media' is highlighted and press the Select
button. The radio will scan for all available UPnP servers. It may take a few seconds for the
radio to complete its scan. The radio will display '<Empty>' if no UPnP servers are found.
5.After scanning, select your UPnP server using the Folder Up or Down buttons. If you are using
WMP 11 as the server, your radio will then normally display 'Unauthorized - Select to retry' at
this stage.
6.Your PC may prompt you that there has been a connection to your UPnP server. Whether
prompted or not, in order that the radio may access the music files, you will need to click the
'Library' tab in WMP 11 and select the 'Media Sharing…' item to open the 'Media Sharing'
window. Make sure the box 'Share my media to:' is ticked.
7.In the 'Media Sharing' window, the radio will be listed as an unknown device. Click on the
unknown device shown to select it, then click the 'Allow' button and then click 'OK'.
Note:
If you are using Microsoft Windows' firewall software, this should be correctly configured by
WMP 11. If you are using third party firewall software you may need to manually configure it to
allow your unit and WMP 11 to communicate.
8.On the radio, select the named server again using the Folder Up or Down and Select buttons.
If WMP 11 is now able to communicate with your radio you will be presented with some media
selection options on the display.

Bit-Rates
Your radio supports a range of audio codecs which provide compatibility
with a wide range of Internet Radio stations. These also allow users to
stream music from their computers or to play directly from USB and SD/
SDHC flash memory devices. Note that for any given audio codec, there
are many streaming protocols available, and thus even if an Internet
Radio station uses a supported format, this does not guarantee that
every such station will work with your radio. The radio stations database
to which your radio connects is checked for compatibility so that most
stations should be playable without problems. Similarly when streaming
media from a computer, while a codec may be supported, there can be
many subtle variations in formats, tagging schemes and protocols (even
within UPnP). In general your radio will play the supported formats with
most common UPnP servers.
The following table summarizes the maximum supported bit-rates for the
various audio formats that are playable on your radio. Higher rates may
be playable in some cases but performance of the product may be affected.
Codec Maximum supported rate
AAC (LC) 320kbits/sec
FLAC (1) 1.5Mbits/sec
LPCM (2) 1.536Mbits/sec
MP3 320kbits/sec
Real Audio 64kbits/sec
WAV 1.536Mbits/sec
WMA (3) 320kbits/sec
All codecs support 2-channel (stereo) coded files only. All codecs
support sample rates up to 48 kbits/sec (includes 32 and 44.1 kbits/
sec). USB and SD/SDHC playback supports MP3 and WMA formats
only.Files which have Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection
applied will not be playable on your radio.
(1) 16 and 24 bit samples are supported in FLAC files
(2)T he maximum supported bit-rate is for a 48 kHz sampling, 2
channels and 16-bits per sample.
(3)W MA Lossless, WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional, and files
which have DRM protection are not supported.
