Basic Operation

Overview

Basic operation of the AR-AM1 Audio Monitor involves connecting an audio source, and monitoring through the stereo speakers.

The user can choose between listening to the amplified internal speakers, or headphones. Audio volume can be adjusted from front panel controls.

Controls

■ Volume Control

The VOLUME control affects only the stereo speakers.

■ Balance Control

The BALANCE control adjusts the relative levels of the LEFT and RIGHT channels of the input, affecting both the stereo speakers and headphone output.

■ Headphone Output

The headphone output accepts standard stereo headphones with a 1/4" TRS connector. Headphones with an 1/8”

(3.5mm) mini-plug connector may be used with an adapter. NOTE: The stereo speakers are NOT muted when a connector is plugged into the headphone output. Headphones are not included with this unit.
