Important notice
Safety instructions
AC outlet voltages vary from country to country. Before connecting to the mains, make sure that the
voltage in your area meets the voltage requirements printed on the power supply.
The power supply is used to disconnect the unit from the mains. Make sure that the power supply is easily
accessible at all times. Never handle the device, the power supply while your hands are wet or damp.
Avoid letting liquids enter the device or the power supply. Never place any item containing liquid, such
as a flower vase on or near the device. Never spill any liquid on the device or the power supply. Never
place any naked flame sources, such as lighted candles on or near the device. The product shall not be used
in damp or wet locations, next to a bathtub, sink, swimming pool or any other similar conditions.
Make all connections whilst the phono amplifier is disconnected from the power supply.
Take care to connect the left and right channels correctly. The right channel is usually marked
red, the left channel black or white.
Do not connect the phono amplifiers output to a phono input (sometimes labelled gram, disc
or RIAA) on the amplifier.
Never use any other power supply than the one supplied with the unit.
Connecting the record player or a line level source
Connect the tonearm signal lead to the sockets Phono In of the phono amplifier. Connect the earthing wire of
the tonearm signal lead to the screw terminal, if you encounter hum problems. The signal lead of a line level
source has to be connected to the socket Line In (jack 3.5mm).
Input selector
Operating the push button Phono/Line selects the inputs. “Phono” activates signal from Phono In RCA
sockets, “Line” activates line level input Line In.
Connection to the amplifier (Bluetooth speaker/headphone)
The unit provides analogue and Bluetooth output connection.
Use the analogue Line Out output of the unit for connection to a line input (such as AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape or
Video) in your amplifier.
Line Out acts as a direct bypass when Line in input is selected. (Active also without power supply)

Alternatively the built-in Bluetooth transmitter allows to relay signal from inputs (Phono or Line) to any Bluetooth
receivers such as Pro-Ject MaiA or Bluetooth Box E (S) or directly to Bluetooth speakers or headphones.
Bluetooth transmitter connects to the receiver with strongest signal automatically.
If you want to connect it to a Bluetooth Box E (S) it is important to connect the Phono Box E BT to the power
supply first. Otherwise it is possible, that the boxes are not able to connect. The boxes connect automatically.
If the connection is successful, you will hear a sound. Now you are able to use it.
Output signal is always present on both outputs (analogue and Bluetooth).
Mains power connection
Connect the low voltage plug from the power supply to the Power 18V socket of the phono amplifier before
connecting the power supply to the mains.
