Danger

 

 

 

 

1.

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent

 

hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing

2.

loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently

 

intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's

3.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified

 

the following permissible noise level exposures:

 

 

 

4 .

SOUND LEVEL (dB)

90 93

95 97 100 103

 

 

 

7.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8.

According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could

result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over

 

the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to

9.

prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as

put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high

 

sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to

 

equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this

 

amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in

 

operation.

I. Installing the NV-T2DFDual Tuner

Fig . 1

Stereo Audio Connections

Each tuner has two audio output jacks. One is a stereo RCA connection, and the other is a stereo 3.5mm mini. The RCA output is an individual left and right channel connection made with a standard RCA cable. The other end is connected to the corresponding audio input on the back panel of the audio amplifier. An example of this is one of the source inputs on the back panel of a NuV0 audio distribution system, fig. 1.

The 3.5mm stereo output labeled “AUDIO OUTPUT” is also available for system connection. Compatible cables are

available with the male mini connection on each end, or with a

Fig. 2

stereo RCA connection on one end, fig. 2.

Direct IR Control

The T2 is designed for IR control via IR received by an audio distribution system. In the NuVo Simplese or Essentia audio

distribution systems, the IR emitter outputs act as a repeater Fig. 3 to IR signals incident on the system keypads. The T2's wired IR

connector is a 3.5mm two-conductor(mono) jack labeled “IR INPUT.” Using a monomini-to-minipatch cable, connect the IR emitter output of a Simplese or Essentia Main Unit to the IR INPUT on the T2. The two tuners in the T2 respond to separate IR codes, so the direct IR input replaces the need for external IR emitters placed over the IR receiver windows on the front of the unit, fig. 3. This connection is not used when using the Concerto NuVoNet system. The NuVo Essentia and Simplese systems are used for example, but the T2 is compatible with any audio system that is capable of repeating IR.

IR Pass-Thru

The mini jack labeled “IR pass-thru"mini connection is used for connecting forwarded IR signals to an audio component connected to the auxiliary audio input.

Using the Aux. Input

The T2 is equipped with an auxiliary audio input labeled “AUX IN.” This will accept an audio signal from an external component. This is most useful as an additional local source, or an additional source in a multi-zoneaudio system.

The auxiliary input is a stereo RCA connection and requires a standard RCA cable for the connection, fig. 4. This must be enabled through the advanced menu, which is accessed through the “Select Knob” on the face of the T2 (see Menu Controls, AUX Input pg. 14) or in the T2 Configurator software (seeUsing the T2 Configurator Software pg. 22). An additional advanced feature is the ability to set the gain of the auxiliary signal to match the output signal level of the T2.

Once the auxiliary input is enabled, it is selected from the remote using the “AUX” button, fig. 5, or by pressing the “Source” button for either Tuner A or Tuner B on the face of the T2 and stepping through FM, AM, and WX (Weather Band) to Aux., fig. 6.

The T2 ships with a proprietary amplified AM/FM antenna. This antenna is designed to work only with the NuVo T2 series tuners. It can be located up to 200 feet from the tuner location, and we recommend 75-ohmRG 6 coaxial cable with a standard F style connector on each end. Simply attach the cable to the connector at the bottom of the antenna, and into the “Antenna Input” on the T2, fig. 7. Once connected, the T2 should immediately receive broadcast signals and RDS (Radio Data Service) when it is available.

We recommend placing the antenna inside in an attic or as high as possible for the best possible AM and FM reception, fig. 8. A 2 meter (6 foot) pre-terminatedcoaxial cable is provided with the tuner package for testing the antenna connection or if you choose to place the antenna close to the tuner location.

USB and RS232 Communication

The T2 has two serial communication ports. These allow for complete control of the T2 functions by RS232 control devices. The necessary protocol for RS232 control is available through the NuVo Website Prozone at www.nuvotechnologies.com/prozone.

II. Front Panel Menu Controls

The T2 has many settings available in the menus. This allows for many specialized set up options for basic tuner operation. The menu is accessed from the front panel by pressing and holding the “MENU” button. Once in menu mode, you can scroll through the menu options by turning the “Select” knob clockwise (CW) to move forward and counterclockwise (CCW) to move backward. As the Select knob moves through the menu, the choices appear on that tuner's display. The top line contains the name of the current menu selection. The bottom line shows the menu choices. When the desired menu option appears on the display, pressing the Select knob enters the menu choice. When the desired menu setting is made, pressing the Select knob saves it (see menu option tree, fig.9.) Pressing the MENU button once while you are in the menu options moves you up one level. Pressing and holding the MENU button exits the menu mode.

Exit Menu: When you first enter the menu choices, the first choice is to exit the menu, which takes you back to normal turner operation.

Force Mono: This is a useful feature when a stereo pair of speakers is not available, or if the signal of a station is weak. Forcing the signal to mono eliminates a weak station from flipping in and out of stereo reception. If RDS display is OFF or if there is no valid RDS data, the display will indicate “MONO.”

Brightness: This changes the intensity of each tuner's display. The level choices range from 1- 8. The default level is the brightest level 8, fig 10.

Info:

Version: This tells you what firmware version is currently loaded on the T2.

Test Status: This is for factory diagnostic use only.

Advanced Settings

The following menu selections are not necessary for standard tuner operation, but do provide a deeper level of control for those who need it. When you scroll to “Advanced Settings” in the menu, pressing the Select knob then accesses the following menu options:

Operating Mode

Concerto Source 1-6: This must be set for the appropriate NuVo Concerto source input, if the T2 is going to be used with Concerto's NuVoNet control network (see pg. 17 Using the T2 with Concerto and

NuVoNet).

Stand-alone: Stand-alonemust be set when the T2 is being used with any system other than the NuVo Concerto audio distribution system.

Regional Setup

USA: This setting is optimized for the United States and Canada.

European (Western): This setting is optimized for Western Europe.

Australia: This setting is optimized for all of Australia.New Zealand: This setting covers all of New Zealand.

These four settings cover most of the worldwide tuning standards. For operation in countries outside of these geographic regions, you may need to use the advanced settings in the T2 Configurator software for customizing the regional tuning standard (see pg. T2

Configuration Software, Advanced Settings).

Fine-Tuning

The fine-tuningfeature enables tuning with a smaller frequency step to include more station frequency possibilities, which may be used in areas allowing manylow-powerbroadcast stations.

FM: The standard tuning for North America and Australia is .200 MHz steps, and the standard for Europe and New Zealand is .100 MHz steps. Finetuning automatically drops the tuning steps to .05 MHz increments.

AM: The North America standard for AM tuning is in 10 kHz steps and Europe is 9 kHz. AM fine tuning goes in 1 kHz steps.

Seek Threshold

This sets the effective station signal strength for seek and scan tuning. With either of these modes, the tuner will automatically tune up until it receives a good signal. You can set the definition a good signal with the seek threshold feature, fig. 11.

FM, AM, WX (Weather Band): All three available bands are set the same way, but are adjusted individually. Scroll with the Select knob to the desired band and press the knob to select it. Once selected, you can choose between five different levels. High means the station needs to have a very strong signal for the tuner to react. Low causes the tuner to stop at any station with the slightest measurable signal. The default is the middle setting. This is an adjustment of the signal threshold. It sets the minimum signal level necessary for tuning using Seek or Scan.

Audio Settings

These selections are intended for some stand-aloneapplications. They should be left at default settings for NuVo audio systems. These systems allow identical audio control on aper-zonebasis.

Bass EQ: Bass output can be adjusted +12 dB or down to 12 dB. The default setting is flat. This feature is useful forstand-aloneuse with an amplifier that does not have bass EQ control. If you are using the T2 with a NuVo audio distribution system, or another system that allows for EQ control, you should leave the T2 set at 0 dB (flat), fig 12.

Treble EQ: Treble can be adjusted the same as bass. The level ranges from 12 dB to +12 dB and defaults at 0 dB. As with the bass setting, this should not be used unless there is no external EQ capability, fig. 13.Balance: Left and Right channel output can be adjusted if desired. As with the EQ adjustments, this feature should not be used when the T2 is used with an audio system that already has EQ and balance adjustment capability, fig. 14.

Output Level: The signal level from the T2 can be adjusted up or down to match the input gain characteristics of other audio equipment in the system. The default setting is 0 dB and the range is 6 dB to +12 dB, fig. 15.

Auto-ON

Enable/Disable: The T2 can be set to turn the tuner displays on automatically when power is applied. This is a good feature forstand-aloneuse. In the event of a power outage or anytime AC power is lost and restored, the T2 tuners will automatically turn back on with thelast-usedsettings without having to use the ON/OFF button on the front panel.

This selection is not necessary when using the T2 with the NuVo Concerto system, because the built-inpower management system between the T2 and Concerto will automatically turn on the tuners when the Power button is pressed on any of the Concerto's Display Pads.

AUX Input

Disable/Enable: The T2 has an auxiliary audio input that allows access through either of the tuners to an additional audio source. To use this you must first enable the input in the menu options.

AUX Gain: The audio input from an auxiliary source can be adjusted to match the output of the T2's Tuner A and Tuner B. AUX Gain is selected by using the Select knob to scroll to that choice and press to enter. Once AUX Gain is selected, amount of input up and down is then controlled and set by using the Select knob to adjust up or down, and then pressing the knob when the desired gain setting has been reached, fig. 16.

Noise Blanking

Disable/Enable: The T2 default setting is to have noise blanking (partial to complete muting of weak noise signals)Enabled. For areas of T2 operation having a very low interference level, it may be desirable to select this menu item and setDisabled in order to listen to very distant, weak stations.

Seek Tune Mode: The seek tunes up when the Select knob is turned CW and down when the Select knob is turned CCW. In seek tune mode, the tuner will automatically stop at the next available station signal. It will stay at that selection until you tune to a new station.

Scan Tune Mode: Scan tune works like Seek Tune, except the tuner will only stay on a station for 5 seconds and then continue to the next signal. To retain a selection, press the Select knob before the tuner resumes scanning for frequencies.

Tuning by Categories: A unique feature is the ability to group station frequencies into specific genre categories. The desired frequencies for each category must be assigned in the T2 Configurator software (see

NV-T2DFConfigurator software, Assigning Categories).Once you have decided on the categories you want to use and assigned specific station frequencies, you will always have that template for future use. To enter Category tuning, press the “Category up or down keys.” This will scroll to the next assigned category with each push. When a category is selected, turning the Select knob will step through all the frequencies within that category, fig. 17.

Direct Numeric Tuning: The T2 allows for direct numeric entry. To get to the Direct mode, press the PRE/DIR button until “DIRECT TUNE” appears on the display. Then pressing the numeric buttons in sequence for the desired frequency and pressing the Select knob will tune to that station.

Preset Tuning: The T2 is able to store 10 preset stations in each of up to 10 banks of presets. This allows a total of 100 presets. The factory default is two banks of presets, but more banks can be added or deleted in the T2 Configurator software. Saving a preset is done simply by tuning to a desired station and pressing and holding one of the numeric buttons until the display reads “Preset Saved.” Once a preset is saved, banks of presets are accessed by pressing the PRE/DIR button, and then pressing the appropriate number button accesses the desired preset.

Radio Data Service (RDS) Information and Display Modes

The Radio Data Service is a format broadcasters can use to send artist and song information with their broadcast. Although this service is gaining in popularity, all stations do not yet use it. If a station is broadcasting RDS, the T2 will automatically scroll what is being received. The Program Status Name (PSN) data field (up to 8 characters) will appear in the upper right of the display. This was intended by RDS system architects to display a station name, such as a call sign. The Radiotext field (up to 64 characters) will be displayed on the second line and will scroll if it exceeds 16 characters. The Radiotext message will be displayed on Display Pads in an integrated Nuvo Concerto system. Radiotext was intended for display of artist and title information.

Page 15

Actual use of these data fields is not regulated, and they may vary significantly in content between stations. If you choose not to have RDS information displayed, pressing the “Display” button will then indicate “RDS receive OFF”. In this state, Stereo indication and a signal strength indicator will replace the PSN field on the top line, and only the station frequency will be displayed on a connected zone's Display Pad. Pressing the button again will restore RDS and display “RDS receive ON.” Each press of the “Display” button toggles between on and off.

Signal Strength/Stereo Indicator

The signal strength indicator responds to the field strength of the received carrier signal, fig. 18. This indicator has seven discrete levels, with a single point at the bottom of the character space indicating a signal just detectable by the tuner, and a very strong signal indicated by four lines of increasing length above 3 dots. Stereo indication is also provided when the tuner is successfully decoding FM Multiplex stereo stations. The field will be blank if stereo reception is not possible due to weak signal conditions or if the station is broadcasting in monaural (mono). The field will display MONO if Force Mono is enabled from the MENU. This indicator and Stereo lock information will be displayed upon tuning to a new station. If RDS Receive is ON (see previous section), then the indicator and Stereo lock information will be displayed momentarily until valid RDS PSN data has been received; then it will be replaced by that data.

Using the Memory Feature

Memory is used to store a specific display for future reference. This is useful for referencing specific RDS information later. It can be used for viewing a song title and artist that you might need to recall at a later date. By pressing the “Memory” button with a single tap, whatever information is scrolling on the display at that time will automatically be saved in the first memory position.

Pressing and holding the Memory button puts the T2 in memory recall mode. Turning the Select knob will scroll up through the saved displays, starting with the most recently saved. The T2 has the ability to save up to 10 displays. When a new display is saved, it will automatically place that information in the first slot, and bump all previously saved displays down one. Display number 10 will automatically drop off the list, fig. 19.

Source Switching

Pushing the “Source” button scrolls between AM, FM, WX (Weather Band), and Auxiliary (Aux.) modes. The auxiliary mode is optional and must be turned on through the T2 Configuration software (see NV-T2DF Configuration software, advanced settings, pg. ) or through the advanced settings menu accessed at the front panel (see Front Panel Menu Controls).

IV. Using the T2 with the Concerto NuVoNet

Setting Up the Tuner for NuVoNet

The T2 must be set for one of the Concerto source inputs 1-6.This can be done at the front panel when the tuner is first turned on, in the T2 Configurator software, or through the front panel advanced menu. The best way to utilize the T2 with NuVoNet is to set up the T2 options in the included Configurator software, and then download the configuration through therear-panelUSB port, using the supplied USB cable, fig. 20.

Making Sure Your Concerto Is Ready for NuVoNet Use

Your Concerto System must be updated with at least software version 1.40 for proper NuVoNet communication with the T2. To check what Configurator version you currently have, open the Concerto Configurator software on your computer by double-clickingon the Configurator icon on the desktop. You will see a splash screen appear before the software opens. This lists the current software version. If you do not have version 1.40 or later, go to

There you can log onto the Download page and download the latest version.

When this is done, open the applicable configuration from your configuration files or retrieve the configuration from the Concerto main unit. Once the appropriate configuration is opened, go to the Source tab and place the T2 IR library in the appropriate source locations 1-6.Once you have added the T2 as two of the Concerto sources, you can then download the configuration to the Concerto through the USB port or the RS232 port on the back of the Concerto, fig, 21. When the download is complete, your system is ready for NuVoNet Communication.

Making the Connection

Prior to connecting to NuVoNet, the Concerto must have the correct Configuration version downloaded with the T2 representing two of the audio sources.

Making the NuVoNet connection is done simply by connecting the “NuVoNet” output on the T2 to one of the “Peripheral Device” inputs on the Concerto EZ Port, fig., 22. This connection will then enable bidirectional NuVoNet communication with the Display Pads.

Network Cable

Operating the T2 with the Concerto Display Pad

By following the previous steps you should now be able to operate the T2 from any of the Concerto Display Pads. The Concerto Display Pads have secondary tuner functions silk-screenedon the bezel below the associated keys. They appear under the appropriate function buttons, fig. 23

Step Tune: Basic step tuning is done by pressing the left or right arrows labeled Tune.

Seek Tune: Seek tuning automatically seeks to the next frequency that meets the set signal strength threshold (see T2 Configuration Software, Advanced Settings, Tuning Parameters pg. 22). This is done by pressing the left and right arrows labeled Seek (see fig. 23).

Scan Tune: Scan tuning automatically tunes to the next available station frequency that meets the signal threshold (as described above in the Seek Tune Mode). Scan tune allows the T2 to settle on a frequency for 5 seconds and then automatically go to the next frequency. To select the station, push the “ENT” button before the T2 resumes station scanning. Scan tuning is initiated by pressing the “PLAY” button, also labeled “Scan” (see fig. 23).

Tuning by Categories: The provided genre categories are defined in the T2 Configuration software (see NV-

T2DF Configuration Software, Advanced Settings, Categories, pg. 24). You can use the stop and pause buttons, also labeled “Categories,” to scroll up or down through the defined categories. Once you have chosen a category, the Seek up and Seek down buttons will automatically tune through any frequency within that category selection. Again, the categories and the frequencies within each category must be first assigned within the T2 Configuration software.

Radio Data Service: The Display Pad will scroll received Radiotext data if the tuned station is broadcasting it and if signal strength is sufficient. When a defined preset is selected, the name of that preset will appear on the display momentarily. If Radiotext RDS data is being broadcast, it will then automatically begin scrolling. This takes a few moments while the information buffers.

Direct Numeric Entry Tuning: Accessing direct tuning is done by pressing the +10 button (see fig. 23). This toggles between banks of presets (the T2 Configurator software allows for 10 banks each with 10 presets) and direct tune. When Direct Tune appears on the display, a frequency can be numerically entered using the numeric keypad on the Display Pad. When you are entering a frequency number, it is not necessary to enter the decimal, i.e. 102.7. The entered numbers will appear on the display. When the ENT button is pressed, the T2 will tune to that station.

Source Switching (radio band, aux input): The bottom row of buttons on the Concerto Display Pad are assigned FM, AM, WX (Weather Band), and Aux. Changing the T2 source is done simply by pressing one of those four buttons, (see fig. 23).

Page 18

T2 Configuration Software

Basic setup and operation of the T2 is easily done from the front panel, the included T2RC3 remote, or the Concerto Display Pad. The T2 package includes the T2 Configurator setup software designed to quickly move you through the Tuners' setup options in a methodical fashion, and allow access to the more advanced setup features. Configurations are saved as files in the software's “Config” folder. Once complete, configurations can be used as templates for future installations.

1.0 Start

The start tab allows you to load an existing configuration, or create a new one. You can also retrieve a configuration from the T2 and edit it.

1.0 Start

1.1 After you have opened a configuration, the next step is the Config Tab.
