Product Overview & Features
The JLINK RX uses state-of-the-art wireless technology to receive audio
signals broadcasted from a paired JLINK transmitter (sold separately)
from up to 100 feet away (30 meters). Operating at an ultra-high
frequency of 2.4 GHz, the JLINK RX delivers crystal-clear, stereo sound
anywhere throughout your home.
Features include:
- Bit-Perfect PCM Stereo Digital Wireless Technology (16 bit / 48 kHz)
- RCA-type output connectors compatible with most audio equipment
- Up to 4 JLINK RX receivers (additional receivers sold separately) can
be paired to each JLINK transmitter (sold separately)
- Includes JLINK port for compatible JL Audio products
- Low-Power Sleep mode after 30 minutes of inactivity
Placement Considerations:
The receiver module may be situated in any position, however its
placement should be away from heat generating sources, such
as amplifier or receiver heat sinks. Also ensure that the module’s
placement does not interfere with the ventilation of other
Although mounting is not necessary, you may use the supplied hook
& loop fastener tape to affix the module to a flat surface on a cabinet
wall, rack or component. If you choose not to mount the module,
make sure it is placed on a flat, stable surface to prevent damage from
Connecting the Receiver – Option A
(when using RCA connections)
1. Select the device that you wish to send the audio signal to and
power OFF that device.
2. Connect the JLINK receiver’s RCA line outputs to your device’s RCA
line inputs.
3. Plug the smaller end of the AC power adaptor into the receiver’s
power jack. Plug the larger end of the AC power adaptor into a
standard A/C wall outlet.
4. Set the receiver’s bottom-mounted switch to the same channel as
the transmitter. Note: The receiver and transmitter (sold separately) need to be set to the same channel.
Connecting the Receiver – Option B
(when using JLINK port)
1. Select the JLINK compatible device that you wish to send the audio
signal to and power OFF that device.
2. Set the receiver’s bottom-mounted switch to the same channel as
the transmitter. Note: The receiver and transmitter (sold separately) need to be set to the same channel.
3. Plug one end of the supplied cable into the JLINK receiver’s JLINK
port. Plug the other end of the cable into the JLINK port of the
compatible device. The JLINK receiver will transfer its audio signal
and receive its power connection directly through this cable. Note:
When connected in this manner, the JLINK receiver’s AC power
jack and RCA output connections should NOT be used.
