HOW TO PLAY THE RADIO

Tips for BEST FM/AM Radio Reception

Always turn OFF any other radios in close proximity to the Unit before trying to tune into radio stations.

FM: The Unit has a built-in FM Wire Antenna (27) at the rear of the unit. This should be fully unravelled and extended. Do not connect the FM Antenna to an outside antenna.

AM: The Unit also has a built-in AM Antenna. If the AM Radio reception is weak, slightly rotate or re-position the main unit. This will usually improve the AM Radio reception.

HOW TO PLAY A VINYL RECORD

Before playing a Vinyl on your Unit, you must ensure that the Tonearm and Stylus are properly balanced by the

Counterweight, ready for play.

How to install the COUNTERWEIGHT

1.

Gently slide the Counterweight onto the rear of the Tonearm until it cannot go any further. (See Fig.1)

2.

Now, gently turn the Counterweight clockwise and backwards until it is in line with the T at the end of the white line on the Tonearm. (See Fig.2)

3.

Keeping the Counterweight in this position, line the ‘1’ up with the T on the white line. (See Fig.3)

4.

The Tonearm should now be in the correct position for playing your records, but can be adjusted at any time (See Fig.4) to achieve the correct balance.

Please note: The working pressure of the Stylus provided with your Unit is between 4-6 grams. However, all styluses have their own working pressure, so please refer to the manufacturer’s specification for other styluses. When properly balanced, the Tonearm should be parallel with the Turntable and sit comfortably in the grooves in the Record, without jumping during play. It may take a few attempts to get this correct.

The life expectancy of the Stylus tip is about 400 hours. To preserve maximum sound quality and avoid damage to your records, we recommend replacing the stylus within this time limit. Always lock the Tonearm on its rest when not in use.

How to use the RECORD PLAYER

Before playing a Record, please remove the Stylus protector from the Stylus. Ensure that the Tonearm is released from the Tonearm Rest (35). Note: Always re-secure the Tonearm back in the Tonearm Lock once play is finished.

1.

Press the Standby/On button (5) and the LCD display (4) will light up.

2.

Press the Function button (6) until the LCD display (4) reads ‘PHONO’. The Turntable will spin a few times and then stop. This is perfectly normal.

3.

Set the Turntable Speed Selector (33) to the required position, depending on the Record to be played

(33rpm, 45rpm or 78rpm).

4.

Place your Record on the Turntable (use the Spindle Adaptor (37) if required).

5.

Set the Cueing lever (34) to the UP position.

6.

Lift the Tonearm from the Tonearm rest and slowly move it to the side of the Record. The Turntable will start to rotate.

7.

Position the Tonearm over the desired position/track on the Record.

8.

Lower the Cueing lever.

9.

The Tonearm will slowly lower onto the Record and play will begin.

10.

When the Record has finished playing, the Tonearm will lift off the Record, and return to the Tonearm rest automatically. (If the Tonearm does not lift off the Record, and return to the Tonearm rest automatically, see

‘ How to align the Tonearm STOP position’ below ).

EN-6

How to STOP playing a VINYL manually

Move the Cueing lever (34) backwards, to the UP position. This will lift the Tonearm from the Record and instantly stop play.

How to ADJUST TURNTABLE speed

Turn the Pitch Adjustment Control (32) to gently increase or decrease the speed of the Turntable.

How to ALIGN the TONEARM ‘stop’ position

When the last track on a Vinyl has finished playing, the Tonearm should lift off and return to the Tonearm rest automatically. If this does not happen, the Tonearm rest can easily be adjusted via the Alignment Screw (30) using a small Phillips head screwdriver:

A) If the Tonearm lifts off the Vinyl and returns to the Tonearm rest before completely playing the Vinyl, use a small Phillips screwdriver to gently turn the Alignment Screw in a clockwise direction. The STOP’ and

‘LIFT’ position of the Tonearm will move inwards to lift off closer to the centre of the Record, when play is completed.

B) If the Tonearm lifts off the Vinyl but does not return to the Tonearm rest automatically after playing the

Vinyl, use the Phillips screw driver to gently turn the Alignment Screw in an anticlockwise direction. The

‘STOP’ and ‘LIFT’ position of the Tonearm will move outwards to lift off further from the centre of the

Record, when play is completed.

Please note: The default ‘STOP’ position is based on the most common setting, but may vary between different users and different records. Simply adjust to the most suitable position based on your own Record collection. Occasionally check the stop position during adjustment. Avoid over turning the alignment screw.

How to RECORD to CD using CD-R or CD-RW discs

As well as playing CDs, the Unit can record CDs using CD-R and CD-RW discs. This is done using the CD, Cassette

Tape, Phono (Record), Auxiliary in, USB and Bluetooth play modes. The disc will be recorded as an ‘Audio-CD’ format disc.

IMPORTANT!

• You can only record onto a CD-R disc ONCE. You cannot erase or re-record data onto a CD-R disc.

• The playback quality of CD-R and CD-RW discs varies on different audio CD players.

• The revolving speed of a CD burner is higher than a normal CD mechanism. Therefore, there may be some mechanical noise and vibration of the unit during operation. This is normal and is NOT a malfunction of the system.

• Due to the variety in quality and compatibility of CD-R and CD-RW discs, please change to another brand if you find that one you are using does not record or perform to your satisfaction.

TROUBLESHOOTING – CD Door Locks

If the power is interrupted or something goes wrong during the CD burning stage, it may cause the system to become locked and you may not be able to open the CD tray. If this occurs:

1.

Switch off the power and push a thin object into the small hole below the CD drawer (9)

2.

Some of the CD drawer will eject mechanically.

3.

Manually, gently pull out the CD drawer completely.

4.

Remove the disc and restart the system again.

HOW TO RECORD TO CD (using your Remote Control)

Apart from the CD playback function, this system’s CD mechanism can also record from Phono/Aux/Tape/USB modes to CD. However, it can only copy a pre-recorded Audio CD to CD via *USB Buffering*.

*Note: Before starting the CD-to-CD Copying process via USB Buffering, it will be necessary to connect a USB

Memory stick (not supplied) with enough space to record on (a minimum of 2GB memory is required for copying an entire CD).

Important notes:

- All recorded tracks will be stored in “AUDIO-CD“ format.

- A “CD-R” disc can be recorded on only once and cannot be erased or re-recorded onto. This can only be done on a CD-RW (Re-Writable) disc. Also, a DVD disc cannot be used with this system.

- The playback quality of either a CD-R or CD-RW disc varies when played back on different types of audio CD players.

- The revolving speed of a CD Burner is higher than that of a normal CD mechanism, therefore, some mechanical noise and vibration of the unit’s cabinet may occur during operation. This is not a malfunction of the system.

Due to the variety in the quality and compatibility of CD-R(W) discs available in the market place, please change to another brand of recordable disc if you find it is not possible to record on the one used or its performance is not stable
