Using the sound system for the first time
1. Place your sound system on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the telescopic aerial. The aerial should be fully extended
and positioned vertically for optimum reception.
3. Plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the back of your
sound system ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
4. Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch
on the wall socket.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting
the sound system to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the
sound system must remain accessible during normal use. In order to
disconnect the sound system from the mains completely, the mains
plug should be removed from the mains socket outlet completely.
5. When your sound system is first switched on the clock display will
show 12:00 and the unit will enter standby mode. It will then scan for
DAB radio stations and when stations have been found the clock and
date should be set automatically. Note that the display will not show
any scanning message for this first scan.
6. If no stations have been found then the clock will not set. You may need
to relocate your sound system to a position giving better reception.
You should then carry out an auto-tune to find DAB stations. See DAB
Operation on page 10 and also Finding New Stations on page 13. The
clock will then be set from a DAB broadcast.

Compact discs
Use only Digital Audio CDs which have the
symbol.
Use only full size CDs (12cm diameter) with the sound system. Mini
CDs (8cm diameter) are not compatible with the player and may jam
the CD mechanism.
Transparent or partly transparent CDs cannot be played since they may
not be detected when inserted. Unusually thin (Eco) CDs cannot be played.
Some copy-protected CDs may not be playable.
Never write on a CD or attach any sticker to the CD. Always hold the CD
at the edge and store it in its box after use with the label facing up.
To remove dust and dirt, breathe on the CD and wipe it with a soft, lint free
cloth in a straight line from the centre towards the edge.
Cleaning agents may damage the CD.
Do not expose the CD to rain, moisture, sand or to excessive heat. (e.g.
from heating equipment or in motor cars parked in the sun).

CD-R / CD-RW discs
Your Sound 100 can playback CD-DA format audio CD-R/CD-RW discs
that have been finalised* upon completion of recording.
*Finalising enables a CD-R/CD-RW disc to playback on audio players
such as your Sound 100. A disc which has not been finalised may have
information added to it using a computer but may not always be playable.
You may have to specifically enable the finalising step with some CD
writing software.
Your Sound 100 may fail to play some CD-R/CD-RW discs due to poor
recording and wide variation in quality of the CD-R/CD-RW disc.

CD / MP3 / WMA
MP3 / WMA CD Mode
The Sound 100 is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3
and WMA files. It is assumed in this section that a file is equivalent to a
CD track.
An MP3 / WMA CD may not contain more than 511 files and not more than
99 folders. MP3 and WMA files should be created with an audio sample
rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal for files created from CD audio content).
MP3 and WMA data rates up to 320 kilobits per second are supported.
WMA Lossless, WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional and files which have
DRM protection are not supported.
When burning CD-R and CD-RW discs with audio files, various problems
may arise which could lead to problems with playback. Typically such
problems are caused by poor CD writing or audio encoding software, or
by the hardware settings of the PC's CD writer, or by the CD being used.
Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD
writer or software manufacturer or look in their product documentation
for relevant information. When you are making audio CDs, take care
to observe all legal requirements and ensure that the copyright of third
parties is not infringed.
CD
1. To select the CD mode press the Mode button until 'CD' shows on the
display, or insert a suitably prepared CD-R or CD-RW disc.
2. Insert a CD with printed side facing up into the CD slot. The disc will
be loaded automatically. The unit will check the CD type and load
its track list. The display will show 'loading' and then 'reading' as the
information is read.
If there are many files or folders on the CD then it may take some
tens of seconds to read all of the file and folder names and to identify
those which are playable (with .mp3 or .wma filename extension).

Your sound system has an iPod dock facility which allows you to play digital
audio files and video soundtracks held on your iPod or iPhone using the

with most iPods. Some models of iPod are supplied with Universal Dock
Adaptor inserts which ensure correct alignment of the iPod with the electrical
connector. Should you require an insert to use your iPod with the Sound
100, then please contact an iPod accessories supplier.

Headphone socket
A 3.5mm stereo Headphone Socket is provided on the rear of your sound
system for use with headphones. Inserting a plug automatically mutes the
internal loudspeakers.
Please be aware that the sensitivity of headphones can vary widely. We
therefore recommend setting the volume to a low level before connecting
headphones to the sound system.
IMPORTANT: Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones
can cause hearing loss.
Aerial removal
The fitted telescopic aerial is suitable for most applications. In some
locations if reception conditions are poor, an external antenna may be
more suitable. For this purpose the telescopic aerial may be removed to
allow connection to an external aerial using a coaxial cable.
First remove the two small screws holding the antenna connector cover in
place using a small cross-head screw driver. Then using a suitable spanner
(11mm across the flats), remove the telescopic aerial by rotating in an
anti-clockwise direction when viewed from the rear of the product.
This will expose an F-type connector to which a coaxial cable may then
be connected.

Audio and Setup
Auxiliary input socket
A 3.5mm stereo Auxiliary Input socket is provided on the rear of your
sound system to permit an audio signal to be fed into the unit from an
external audio device such as iPod, MP3 or CD player.
1. Press and release the Mode button until "AUX IN" is displayed.
2. Connect an external audio source (for example, iPod, MP3 or CD
player) to the Auxiliary input socket.
3. Adjust the volume setting on your iPod, MP3 or CD player if necessary
to ensure an adequate signal level, and then use the Volume Up
or Down buttons on the sound system as needed for comfortable
listening.
