User Manual

Model 1710

Headphone Demonstration

Switching Amplifier

Shown with optional cover.

Introduction

The 1710 is designed to provide high fidelity amplification for premium headphones, and manual switching for self service retail demonstration.

The 1710 has several options that govern the behavior of the headphone demonstration. Generally, only one of the four outputs may be active at any time.

Larger systems, linked by system bus and audio patch cords, can either allow one live position on each 1710, or the entire system can be limited to one active position at a time (see feature switch settings). This configuration may be desired for very compact displays, but multiple selling stations are often preferred.

Audio Sources and Customer Auto Demo

Connect a music player to the PLAYER input jack as the default audio source.

If desired, provide a 3.5mm cord connected to the CUSTOMER input so that customers may use their own music players to demonstrate headphones. When audio is detected on the CUSTOMER input jack, the customer audio is selected as the audio source. If no audio is detected on the CUSTOMER input for 7.5 seconds, the 1710 switches back to the PLAYER input.

Bus Out

The bus output feeds the currently selected audio input (player or customer) to more 1710 modules or other audio devices in the system. Connect a 3.5mm patch cord from the first 1710 bus output to the second 1710 player input, etc. One linked system sharing a house player also must share one customer input (do not use any customer inputs besides the first 1710).

System Bus

A four-conductor System Bus cable that allows multiple 1710 modules to be connected and communicate with each other. They can communicate current product selection as well as alarm signals and alarm reset (see Theft Detection below).

Button (PSB) Ports

In switching mode, customers can activate one product at a time using a two-wire momentary switch. Connect a switch for each corresponding product. The LED in the switch (if present) illuminates during the demonstration.

Theft Detection

The 1710 can detect the headphones that are connected at boot. The on-board buzzer will sound if one is removed. If a louder alarm is desired, the external siren port can power a 12VDC siren when a theft is detected.

When headphones must be connected and disconnected, insert and turn on the siren reset key, make product changes, and turn the key off again. Only one key is needed per system; reset status is communicated to all other modules that are connected via System Bus.

Timeout Switch

In switching mode, a demo timer is initiated each time a customer selects a product output to audition. The demonstration length is set by the timeout switch, in increments of 15 seconds. If the timeout switch is set to 0, then the demonstration does not time out.
