ACD1 Owner’s Manual
Precautions when rack-mounting the unit
This unit will operate stably in an environmental temperature of 0–40°C. If you install this device together with
multiple units of the same device or other devices in a EIA standard rack, the heat produced by the various
devices may raise the ambient temperature inside the rack, resulting in inefficient performance. To ensure that the
heat produced by this device can be dissipated appropriately, please ensure the following conditions when rackmounting it.
• When mounting this device together with other heat-producing equipment such as power amplifiers, leave 1U or more
space between it and other devices (including other ACD1 units). Install a ventilation panel in this vacant space or leave it
open to ensure adequate cooling.
• Leave the back of the rack open, and allow at least 10 cm of space between the rack and the wall and ceiling to ensure adequate cooling. If you’ve installed a fan kit, there may be cases in which closing the back of the rack will produce a greater
cooling effect. For details, refer to the owner’s manual of your rack or fan kit.
■ When mounting the ACD1 together with compatible amplifiers
1) When mounting only one ACD1 in
a rack
2) When mounting multiple ACD1
units in a rack

ACD1 Owner’s Manual
Connecting the AC power cable
• Be sure to turn all devices OFF before connecting AC mains power.
First plug the female-connector end of the included AC cable into the [AC IN] socket on the rear panel of the ACD1, then
plug the male plug into an appropriate AC outlet. Be sure to use an AC outlet of the voltage specified for the device.
Turning the power on and off
• To prevent the initial power-on surge from generating a large noise spike or damaging your speaker system, turn the
devices on in the following order: audio sources, mixer (such as M7CL or PM5D), ACD1, and finally power amplifiers. Reverse this order when turning power off.
• If you power-on the amplifier before the ACD1, the amplifier may be ready before the mute or level setting of the
ACD1 becomes effective, resulting in an unexpected loud sound.
• If you power-off the ACD1 before your XP/XM/XH series amplifiers, the amplifier’s settings will return to their default
1. Press the [POWER] switch to power-on the ACD1.
2. Press the [POWER] switch again to turn off the power.
• The settings at the time you powered-off are remembered. When you turn on the power again, the unit will start up
with the same settings. You can use the “Last Mem. Resume” setting to set up the unit so that at startup it will recall
the scene number selected before you turned off the power to the device.
• Do not power-off the unit while its LCD indicates “Do not turn off!” Otherwise, a malfunction may occur.
• A small amount of current is flowing even when the power switch is off. If you will not be using this device for an
extended period of time, be sure to disconnect the power plug from the AC outlet.

• The network switch is not necessary if the computer and ACD1 are directly connected.
• The Ethernet cable between the computer or network switch and the ACD1 can be no longer than 100 meters. However,
due to variations in computers, network switches, and cable quality, proper operation at the maximum length cannot be
guaranteed in some cases.
• In the United States or Canada, the Ethernet cables that connect the ACD1 to the computer or network switch should be
STP cables in order to avoid electromagnetic interference.
• Since the ACD1 supports Auto MDI/MDI-X, it will automatically detect whether the connected cable is of the straight type
or crossover type, and will configure itself to create the appropriate connection. Therefore, you can use either a straight or
crossover cable.
ACD1 Owner’s Manual
Connection Examples
Connections with the PC-N or Tn series
The ACD1 allows daisy-chain connection of up to 32 PC-N or Tn series units using Ethernet cable via the [DATA PORT] connector.
Connection procedure
1. Make the appropriate AMP ID and terminator settings using the [AMP ID] switches located on the rear
panel of the connected amplifiers.
Specify a different AMP ID for each amplifier that is connected to the same ACD1. The AMP ID will be the total of the
