POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE SELECTION
The power supply of your unit has been adjusted to operate with the AC voltage of your
area. Check on the back panel of the unit if in any doubt. If you move after purchasing the
Universal player to an area using different mains voltage, do not forget to switch the back
panel selector to the new voltage of your area. The unit can operate at 50 or 60 Hz mains.

CHOICE OF THE PLAYER LOCATION
Due to the specific quality of its Goldmund "Mechanical Grounding" construction, the
Goldmund Eidos 36A Player is less critical than other designs in placement selection.
Feedback is mostly so low that no special precaution is required. Nevertheless, position the
player as far as you can from the speakers if you want to totally avoid the air coupling
between the speakers and the player.
Locate the Player to provide the most rigid possible connection to the building construction.
Solid coupling is essential and the support used (Rack, Table, Shelf) must be as rigid and
solid as possible.
5
POWER CONNECTION
Plug the AC power cord to the back of the Eidos 36A and in a wall socket. Switch the back
power switch to ON. The front display will light up as soon as you press any key or when
pressing the remote control STANDBY button, meaning the unit is now powered on.

BACK PANEL CABLE CONNECTIONS
Audio Connections
The Eidos 36A is equipped with the following stereo output connectors to connect your
player to a D/A converter or digital preamplifier:
o
o
75 Ohms RCA coaxial SPDIF connector.
TOSLINK optical cable output.
Goldmund recommends that the greatest care is taken when selecting the cable linking the
player to the D/A converter or digital preamplifier. The very accurate signal provided by the
Eidos 36A can easily be ruined by an imperfect connection. Use a "Goldmund Lineal™"
cable from the coaxial output if you want to achieve the most accurate jitter-free connection
for CD playback.
Additionally, there are the following Analog Audio Outputs:
o 2 x RCA (Left/Right) coaxial stereo analogue outputs.
o 6 x RCA 6 channel coaxial analogue outputs (needed for multi-channel DVD-Audio
and SACD connection).
