QUICK START
If you are too excited to read the manual, at least read this page
to minimize any potential mistakes (we know you don't make
any). Be sure your amplifier is off while making connections, and
every time you turn on your system, apply power to your amplifier last.
The most common assumption is that the cables you already
have will work. Well, let's be sure first. None of your RCA cables
should be longer than 10 feet (3 meters) or you are asking for
hum. The MAIN and AUX OUTPUTS are balanced ¼" TRS
(tip-ring-sleeve) connectors, allowing you to run long lines if
neccessary with properly balanced cables. If you really have to
use unbalanced (tip-sleeve) cables, keep them as short as possible
(well under 10 feet [or 3 meters]). If you are connecting balanced
devices (3-conductor) to either Input of the MP 2S, or are sending the Output to an unbalanced equalizer or amplifier, consult
the included RaneNote “Sound System Interconnection” for proper
wiring.
The MP 2S has 3 sets of Outputs. The HOUSE OUTPUT
is set by the front panel HOUSE LEVEL control. The AUX
OUTPUT is set by the rear panel screwdriver adjusted AUX
LEVEL control. The TAPE OUTPUT is fixed. All Output level
controls are independent of each other. The only Level controls
that affect all Outputs simultaneously are the PROGRAM A
and B LEVEL controls.
If you bring a phono signal into P1 or P2 be sure to keep the
PHONO switch in; likewise when connecting a CD player to
this input, be sure the PHONO switch is out.
Start with the HOUSE LEVEL all the way down so you
don't scare the neighbors. Start with the Crossfader all the way
to the left (PROGRAM A). Select an INPUT for PROGRAM
A and another for PROGRAM B and start playing your sources.
Set the LOW and HIGH controls to the center. Adjust the
PROGRAM LEVEL controls so the bottom three (-24, -12, and
0) indicators light up. If the +12 indicator flashes, turn down its
PROGRAM LEVEL control. Now slowly turn up the HOUSE
LEVEL so you can hear things working. Moving the Crossfader
to the right brings in the source selected on PROGRAM B.
The headphone cue system is simple: The PAN controls the
headphone mix between the Program going to the HOUSE and
what is on CUE, determined by the CUE switches.
A clean Crossfader is happy, behaved and long-living. See the
Fader Cleaning instructions on page Manual-4.

1 MIC LEVEL control: adjusts the Level of the MIC Input. The OL (overload) indicator lights when the maximum mic level has
been reached, 3 dB before clipping. If this lights up, either turn the MIC LEVEL down, or stop yelling.
2 Program INPUT selectors: provide Input selection between the two Phono and two Line Inputs for each of the Program A or
Program B channels.
3 Program LOW and HIGH controls: adjust the equalization for each of the Program channels. Pointing these controls straight
up at their center detents takes the tone controls out of the path. This is not designed to be the only equalizer in the system, this
is intended to adjust tone between varying program materials. We recommend an external graphic equalizer for the best system
sound, connected between the MASTER OUTPUTS and the amplifier.
4 Program LEVEL controls: set the volume of each Program Input, as you would expect! These controls are pre-Crossfader, so
both Program Level controls also depend on the Crossfader setting(see 6).
5 Program meter: shows signal presence (at -24), optimum signal level (at around 0), and a warning to turn down the associated
LEVEL control if the +12 indicator lights up.
6 Active Crossfader: controls the mix of Program A and B Levels in a logical manner. When the Crossfader is all the way left, only
Program A is heard. When it’s all the way right, only Program B is heard. When it’s right in the middle, both Program A and B
are mixed together equally. This is an Active Crossfader™ which uses a VCA to deliver an extended life and reduced travel noise. To
insure trouble-free operation, see Fader Cleaning on page Manual-4.
7 HOUSE LEVEL control: adjusts the Output Levels of the MAIN OUTPUTS.
8 Phone CUE switches: select Program A or B in any combination. The associated yellow indicator lights when a CUE is activated
and pressed in. Depressing a button sends Program to the CUE side of the PAN control. For example, when the Crossfader is to
the left (playing Program A to the House), listen to CUE B (Program B) on the headphones to audition, match beats or prepare
its starting point.
9 Phone PAN control: changes the relative levels of the Cue and Program mixed together in stereo for the headphones. PGM follows the Main (House) Output; Cue is determined by the CUE switches and only goes to the headphones. Adjust this control
anywhere between Program and Cue.
0 PHONES LEVEL and headphone jack: As you guessed, plug your headphones in here and adjust the overall volume with the
LEVEL control.
q POWER indicator: illuminates to let you know that the MP 2S is plugged in and ready to rock.

1 PHONO/LINE 1 & 2 INPUTS: are switchable from a PHONO (RIAA) stage for magnetic cartridges (PHONO, switch in) to a
LINE level Input suitable for any line level device such as a CD player (LINE, switch out). The PHONO GROUND screw connects to those extra green wires coming out of the turntables.
2 LINE 1 & 2 INPUTS: connect to stereo sources such as CD players or any line-level device. L1 and L2 may be assigned to Program A or Program B via the front panel INPUT switches.
3 MIC Input: accepts a ¼" balanced (TRS) or unbalanced (TS) microphone cable, controlled by the MIC LEVEL control on the
front panel.
4 HOUSE OUTPUT: The front panel HOUSE LEVEL control affects the volume at this Output. These balanced ¼" TRS (tipring-sleeve) Outputs connect to a balanced equalizer or amplifier. Though not recommended, unbalanced ¼" TS (tip-sleeve)
cables may be used for short runs (under 3 meters [10 feet]) to an amplifier with unbalanced inputs. See the RaneNote “Sound
System Interconnection” for wiring recommendations.
5 AUX OUTPUT: This delivers the same signal as the HOUSE OUTPUT, but has its own LEVEL control on the rear panel. This
Output is not affected by the front panel HOUSE LEVEL control. These balanced ¼" TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) Outputs connect to a
balanced equalizer or amplifier (for a possible second listening zone) and follow the same interconnection rules as above.
6 TAPE OUTPUT: These line-level RCA Outputs are intended for use with a tape recorder, but not necessarily restricted to that
purpose. Be creative! These Outputs are not affected by the HOUSE LEVEL or AUX LEVEL controls.
7 MIC to TAPE switch: In the YES position the Mic signal along with the Program Inputs are routed to the TAPE OUTPUT.
In the NO position only the Program Inputs appear at the TAPE OUTPUT.
8 Universal Voltage Input: via a miniature IEC 60320 C6 appliance inlet. With the right cord, you can plug anywhere in the
world between 100 and 240 VAC. This mates with an IEC 60320 C5 line cord (USA domestic). Do not lift the ground connection!
