Stopping the record Once the record has played to the end, the tonearm will automatically return to the tonearm rest. To manually stop the record, do the following. How to use with Bluetooth connection • To connect for the first time, pair the product and your device via Bluetooth wireless technology. • Read the user manual for the Bluetooth receiver device. • Note that Audio-Technica cannot guarantee the operation of displays, such as the battery level display, or applications via Bluetooth devices. 1. 2. 1. 2. 3. Lower the volume of the amplifier, speakers, etc. sufficiently. O Press the STOP button. O Turn on the Bluetooth receiver device. • Indicator LED turns blue when the product and Bluetooth receiver device are connected correctly. • When the indicator LED lights in red, press the wireless function button to connect Bluetooth communication. Refer to “Automatic operation” on p. 8 or “Manual operation” on p. 8 to play a record. • When Bluetooth is connected, and you keep the wired connection (amplifier, speaker, etc.) turned on, the sound will be heard from both the wireless and wired devices. Turn on only the device you want to use for playback. • Once the record stops playing, the tonearm automatically returns to the tonearm rest. STOP Remove the record after the platter has come to a complete stop. • When the tonearm reaches the end (center) of the record, it will automatically lift and return to the tonearm rest. Do not interfere with its motion. Doing so can cause the product to malfunction. If the tonearm does not lift and return to the tonearm rest, press the STOP button to complete this operation. • If the felt mat gets dirty, it can easily scratch the record, so remove the felt mat periodically and wipe off any dust. • To prevent the record from scratches and warping, remove it after use. • Do not use a disk stabilizer. • Do not use a platter other than the one provided. • This product is not intended for DJs. Do not touch the record or the platter while the record is playing. 9

****** Page 11 ****** Turntable body • When the turntable body is dirty or dusty, first disconnect the AC adapter, and then wipe off the dirt and dust with a soft, dry cloth. • Do not use benzenes, thinners, etc. • When storing the product for a long time, disconnect the AC adapter from the outlet and wrap the product in plastic; do not allow it to become damp. Stylus tip • If dirt and grime are stuck to the stylus tip, clean it with a commercially sold brush. • We recommend using a stylus cleaner (sold separately) if the stylus tip is considerably dirty. Clean the stylus tip by moving the brush from the rear to the front of the stylus tip. x Replacing the stylus Removing the stylus • In addition to the deterioration of sound quality, records may also be damaged as the cartridge’s stylus tip wears down. • As a rule of thumb, replace the stylus after 400 hours of use. • Be sure to disconnect the product’s AC adapter from the outlet. • When replacing the stylus, hold the headshell and the cartridge body tightly. 1. Rotate the front of the stylus in a forward and down motion. Installing a new replacement stylus 1. Mount the new replacement stylus to the cartridge. Engage in body first 2. Lift the stylus up until you hear a click. 3. Make sure there is no gap between the headshell and the cartridge. x 10

****** Page 12 ****** Replacing the belt • The belt is a consumable part. Replace the belt if the speed of playback slows down or irregular rotation occurs. As a rule of thumb, we suggest replacing the belt once a year. • Before replacing the belt, be sure to disconnect the product’s AC adapter from the outlet. 1. Remove the felt mat. 2. Remove the platter, turn the platter over, and then remove the old belt. • Place your thumbs in the openings and pull up strongly. 3. Place the new belt around the inner circle. • Be careful not to twist the belt while doing this. Belt 4.

****** Page 13 ****** Troubleshooting Problem The platter does not spin. The platter spins, but there is no sound or the volume is not loud enough The stylus skips. There is howling. There is noise when the record is playing. The sound when the record is playing is either too fast or too slow. Playback speed slows down or there is irregular rotation. Unable to pair. No sound is heard / Sound is faint. Sound is distorted / Noise is heard / Sound cuts out. Solution • Is the AC adapter connected to the outlet? Connect the AC adapter to the outlet. • Has the belt slipped from the platter? Correctly place the belt on the platter. • Is the belt placed on the motor pulley?

Check the cartridge and adjust it, if necessary. • Are the setting positions for the pre-amplifier selector switch correct? Check that the pre- amplifier settings are correct, noting the following common problems and their causes: If there is no sound, or if the volume is not loud enough, the product is set to the “PHONO” position and connected to the amplifier’s AUX/LINE input. — If the volume is too loud or is distorted, the product is set to the “LINE” position, and the connectable equipment is connected to the PHONO input. • Is the record warped? Check the record. • Is the record scratched? Check the record. • Is the product picking up excessive vibrations from the floor, surfaces of the walls, or nearby speakers? Decrease the vibrations or mount the product on a surface that is not subject to the effects of vibrations. • Is the product mounted on an unstable surface? Check whether the surface on which the product is mounted is suitable. • Is there dust on the cartridge’s stylus tip? If dust is stuck to the stylus tip, clean it with a commercially sold brush. • Are the speed settings for this product correct? Use the platter speed button to select the correct speed for the type of record being played. • Is the belt stretched out? Replace it with a new belt. • Confirm that the Bluetooth receiver device communicates using Ven 2.1 +EDR or highen • Place the product and the Bluetooth receiver device within 1 m (3.3) of each other. • Turn on the power of the product and the Bluetooth receiver device. • Turn up the volume of the product and the Bluetooth receiver device. • Move away from obstacles between the product and the Bluetooth receiver device, such as people, metal or walls, and place the product and the Bluetooth receiver device closer together. • Turn down the volume of the product and the Bluetooth receiver device. • Keep the product away from devices that emit radio waves such as microwaves and wireless routers. • Keep the product away from TVs, radios, and devices with built-in tuners.
