Let’s Get Started
Attach the Counterweight
The counterweight controls how much pressure the stylus will put on a record. If
there is too much pressure, the sound will become distorted. If there is too little
pressure, the stylus will skip out of the grooves on a record.
The tone arm should be balanced without the protective cover over the stylus,
as it will affect the weight. Be careful not to damage the stylus while the cover is
removed.
    •   Attach the counterweight on the rear of the tone arm and remove the ties
        and the tone arm lock securing it in place.




    •   Adjust the counterweight by turning clockwise or counter-clockwise until the
        tone arm floats naturally.
    •   Rotate the numbered dial (without rotating the counterweight) so that the
        marked “0” is at the top, 12 o’clock position, indicating the neutral balance
        setting for future reference.
    •   Grasping both the counterweight and the dial, rotate counter-clockwise so
        that the reading “0.4” is at the top, 12 o’clock position, indicating the tone
        arm is set for 4 grams of pressure on the record. This is the recommended
        setting for the stylus.

Power
Plug the DC power adapter into a
standard wall outlet and the DC
Power Input on the unit.




Loading a Record
•   Place your record on the platter, aligning it with the center spindle.
•   Set the speed selector dial to match your record type - 33, 45, or 78. If you
    are playing a 45rpm record, be sure to place the 45rpm adapter on the
    platter first, so that it is between the platter and the record.
•   Remove the protective cover on the stylus, then release the lock on the tone
    arm.

                                                       Unlock


                                    Lock




•   Use the tone arm lift switch to raise the tone arm upwards, then carefully
    move it into position over the record.
•   As the tone arm moves into position, the platter will start spinning. Use the
    tone arm lift switch to lower the tone arm stylus onto the record. When the
    stylus comes into contact with the grooves on the record, the turntable will
    send audio to the connected speakers.

     Connecting to a Bluetooth Speaker
     •   Start by enabling Pairing Mode on the Bluetooth Speaker you want to
         use. Before beginning the pairing process, be sure no other devices are
         connected to the speaker.
     •   On the turntable, turn Bluetooth Mode ON by adjusting the switch on the
         back of the unit.
     •   Press the Pair button on the turntable to begin pairing to your speaker. The
         indicator light on the turntable will quickly flash blue while it attempts to
         connect to the speaker.
     •   When successfully paired, the indicator light on the turntable will turn solid.
         Note: If the turntable fails to connect, the indicator light will keep flashing
         blue. Press the Pair button to try again.
     •   Audio from the record will now be heard through the connected speakers.
         Use the volume control on the speakers to adjust the audio level.

Connecting to External Speakers
•   Use an RCA audio cable to connect to a pair of external speakers. Connect
    the Line Out ports on the turntable to the corresponding color-coded ports
    on the speakers.
•   Set the selector switch on the back of the turntable to Line Out to send
    audio to the speakers.
•   IMPORTANT! If you are connecting the turntable to speakers through a
    preamp, set the switch on the back of the turntable to Phono. Improper
    selection of the switch will result in either no sound or explosive sound.
•   Audio from the record will now be heard through the connected speakers.
    Use the volume control on the speakers to adjust the audio level.

 Hints and Tips
     Anti-Skating
     The Anti-Skating dial adjusts the inward tracking of the tone arm on the record.
     Usually, the dial should be left in its lowest setting. However, if the turntable is
     experiencing excessive skipping as the record plays, increase the anti-skating
     effect in increments of 1 using the dial.
     Pitch Adjustment
     The Pitch Adjustment dial will increase or decrease the speed of the platter as
     it spins. This can be used to fine tune the speed of the record as it plays. If the
     speed or sound seems a little off, use the dial to correct the audio distortion.
     Stylus Replacement
     The stylus is rated for 300 hours of play. However, if you notice a change in
     audio quality, you should replace the stylus as soon as you can. Prolonged use
     of a worn out stylus can damage records.
     •   To replace a stylus, first, be sure the turntable is powered OFF, then carefully
         pull the stylus simultaneously downward and forward off of the tone arm.
     •   Insert the new stylus and press upwards until it clicks into place.
     Usage Tips
     •   Close the top cover to prevent dust from collecting on the turntable or your
         records. Dust and other particles can interfere with the stylus as it tracks in
         the grooves of a record.
     •   Be sure to lock the tone arm in place before transporting the turntable.
     •   Do not place anything on the turntable or the top cover, especially when it is
         in use.
