Instructions Guide

Basic Operation

Please note all (Ref.) refer to the Controls and Functions in the above diagrams.

Plug the power connector into the power port labelled ‘AC~’ ​(Ref.20) into the back of the unit and the power supply into the mains.​

​Ensure the aerial (Ref.14) is extended as far as possible so ​that you can rotate it which will enable you to get the best ​signal possible.​

Switch the button on the rear of the unit to ‘On’ (Ref.19). Once the screen switches on, “–:–” should display. Press ​the ‘Power/Standby’ button on the unit (Ref.8) or on the remote (Ref.21). It will ​automatically take you to DAB/DAB+ radio mode or the previous ​mode you were using. ​

When DAB Radio is activated for the first time the display will show “Full Scan”. Press down the Navigate/OK dial on the unit (Ref.13) or on the remote (Ref.47). The unit will then scan and store all available stations.

To scroll through the stations, hold down the ‘Next’ button (Ref.46) until the station list appears. Then use the Navigation/OK dial on the unit, or the ‘Previous’ (Ref.31) and ‘Next’ ​buttons (Ref.46) on the remote. Press down the Navigate/OK dial or press the ‘Play/Pause’ button on the remote (Ref.47) to listen to a station.​

To turn off fully, switch off at the back of the unit and at the mains. Keep cord out of​ reach of children.

Language Setting

The default display language is English. You can change the default language by pressing the Menu button on the remote (Ref.29) or on the unit (Ref.9). When the menu is open, <Full Scan> will be displayed on the screen.

Either use the ‘Navigation/OK’ dial on the unit or press the ‘Next’ button on the remote (Ref.46) repeatedly to scroll through to <System> and confirm choice by pressing the ‘Play/Pause’ button (Ref.47).
