Output Connections

The DCM290P provides separate stereo outputs via analog RCA connectors and digital optical and coaxial connectors.

MP3/WMA Decoders

MP3/WMA decoders play finalized CD- R/RW discs containing MP3 or WMA audio files. A single CD-R/RWdisc can contain up to 10 times more tracks than an ordinary audio CD. Installations requiringlong-playbackground music are excellent applications forCD-R/RWdiscs containing a large number of MP3 files.

Playback Modes

Audio track selection can be configured in a variety of ways for playback. Tracks can be played back sequentially or randomly, manually or programmed (up to 32 tracks) from any one or up to five loaded discs. Random playback functions include random playback of tracks from one, all or programmed tracks from the loaded discs. Once all tracks are played back in random order, "repeat playback" plays back the same selected tracks in a different random order.

Intelligent Disc Scan

When using the remote control, the disc skip button rotates the carousel tray clockwise or counterclockwise when searching for a disc for faster playback.




The TP30D is a compact, commercial-gradeAM/FM tuner for background music applications. The 18 FM and 12 AM station presets can be automatically scanned to make finding a desired station quick and easy. Stations are tuned usingpush-buttoncontrols and the backlit LCD display.

Antenna Connections

Anyone who has installed a tuner inside an industrial building knows that radio signals don’t penetrate too far into these steel-lacedstructures. Because the TP30D is designed for industrial installations, it contains inputs for both external300-ohm(twin line) and75-ohm(coaxial) antenna feeds. The75-ohminput uses an “f” connector and is ideal for receiving feeds from antenna distribution systems or cable systems. For convenience, the TP30D also provides abuilt-inantenna that uses the AC line cord as its antenna for those situations that are less demanding.

Whether sitting on a shelf or mounted in a rack, the TP30D is a great choice for an industrial-gradetuner.

Paging Input Details

The RM350D is oftentimes installed in retail locations for supplying background music alone, but it has a full-featuredmicrophone paging input that makes it ideal for more demanding installations.The microphone input is alow-impedancebalanced input that works with dynamic microphones. Whenever a page is made, the background music is muted. This can be done in two ways: 1) audio activity on the MIC input, or 2) a switch contact closure. For enhanced flexibility,the RM350D can be set to respond to either a normally open or normally closed switch contact. The DDU250 and MBS1000A(see page 58) are perfect desktop microphones for this application since they each have apush-to-talk function.

By using aWMT1A matching transformer, the MIC input can be connected to the paging port of a telephone system. The audio-activatedmute function of the RM350D will cause the background music to mute whenever a page is made. In addition, this input also has automatic level control (ALC), which controls how loud a page can be and ensures that people with loud voices don’t boom over the paging system.


The RM350D lets you make the most of your paging/background music system. A Pre-Pageoutput connector on the rear of the unit supplies only the background music without any of the paging announcements. Connect this output to the telephone system’smusic-on-holdinput and callers will enjoy the background music too.ThePre-Pageoutput will supply either the tuner or AUX program material depending on the setting of the AUX/Tuner button.

Speaker Zones

Built into the RM350D is a convenient 4- zone selector switch group. These push- on/push-offswitches allow you to control how paging is distributed throughout a facility. Simply turn on and off groups of speakers as needs change. An “ALL” button is also provided to turn on all system speakers, overriding any individual setting.



Rack Mount Kit

The RM350D is a unique self-containedpaging system with an AM/FM tuner, providing 35 watts of paging power. Alow-impedance,balanced microphone input is provided for microphone paging announcements or telephone paging when used with an accessory transformer (WMT1A). Amusic-onlyoutput can feedannouncement-freebackground music to other equipment or to a telephonemusic-on-holdinput.

Space Saving

The CDR1 is an excellent choice for supplying background music to a paging system. It incorporates a full-featuredreceiver and CD player in an extremely compact size. Whenrack-mountedusing the optional mounting kit, the CDR1 fits in 2 rack spaces.

Dual Outputs

A unique feature of the CDR1 is its dual outputs. Since it is designed for paging systems, a set of signal level RCA outputs is available on the rear of the unit.These outputs can feed the music or AUX inputs of a paging system directly. But the CDR1 also contains a pair of 1-wattoutputs that can drive8-ohmspeakers directly.These outputs provide a convenient way to supply local music or to monitor the receiver tuning, without the need to run paging speakers into the equipment room.

Commercial Sound Use

The FMR is an advanced commercial music source. It may be housed in a compact and familiar package,but this is no simple transistor radio. It has two types of outputs.The line output is designed to interface with any AUX input, and the 1-wattoutput has enough power to supply even older tele-

phone systems’ music-on-holdinputs.www They both have level controls so you can

use them simultaneously. The FMR also has . a tone control to further shape the sound.bogen

Another feature that makes the FMR unique is its external antenna connections. The built-intelescoping antenna is convenient, but radio signals don’t penetrate very far into most industrial buildings. Connect the FMR’s external antenna terminals to a roof antenna or RF distribution feed forcrystal-clearreception.
