USB port

DS 3. Media Insert the USB memory stick into the USB port or connect the USB device to the USB port using a suitable cable (not supplied).

The system builds playlists (in temporary memory); this operation can take from a few seconds to several minutes at the first connection.

Playlists are updated whenever a USB memory stick is connected or the contents of a particular USB memory stick are changed. The lists are memorised: if they are not modified, the subsequent loading time will be shorter.

Auxiliary (AUX) jack socket

Depending on equipment

DS 3. Media Connect a portable device (MP3 player, etc.) to the auxiliary jack socket using an audio cable (not supplied).

This source is only available if "Aux Amplification" has been selected in the audio settings.

First adjust the volume on the portable device (to a high level). Then adjust the volume of the audio system.

Controls are managed via the portable device.

Bluetooth® streaming

Streaming allows you to listen to music from your smartphone.

The audio system will only play audio files with ".wav", ".wma", ".aac", ".mp3", ".mp4", ".m4a", ".flac", ".ogg" file extensions and with a bit rate of between 32 Kbps and 320 Kbps (300 Kbps maximum for ".flac" files).

It also supports VBR (Variable Bit Rate) mode. All ".wma" files must be standard WMA 9 files.
