About Transporter
Thank you for purchasing a Transporter™ network music player. Transporter lets you play your digitized music collection through your stereo system using your wireless or ethernet network. With Transporter, you can also listen to internet radio stations, set alarms, display RSS feeds, and more!
Transporter was designed to appeal to the most discerning audiophiles and music lovers. It streams digital music with sound quality that surpasses even the most exotic compact disc players.
At the heart of Transporter is a “no compromise” attitude to component selection and electronic design.
The rotary TransNav
controller uses dynamic tactile feedback to provide fast access to any song even in the largest music collection. The sleek, backlit, infrared remote and dual fl uorescent displays make it easy to use from anywhere in the room.
Transporter’s back panel features a complete set of professional-grade connectors, including both balanced and unbalanced signals for its analog and digital interfaces.
Transporter’s AK4396 “Miracle DAC” was chosen for its high dynamic range and low distortion. Its low out-of-band noise allows for the use of low-order output fi lters with higher cutoffs, resulting in preservation of phase and reduced distortion in the audible band. This extraordinary accuracy at higher frequencies allows Transporter to resolve the exact staging of instruments and the fi nest details of any recording. In addition, Transporter’s digital inputs allow its built-in DAC to be used with other sources.
Transporter’s digital path is not only “bit perfect”, but also extremely accurate in timing precision. Clock signals in Transporter are handled not as ones and zeroes, but as precision analog signals. Specialized crystal oscillators, careful clock management, and linear-regulated logic supplies ensure the lowest possible jitter throughout the system.
Transporter’s DAC and output amplifi ers are powered by Super Regulators, based on the legendary design by Walt Jung. These regulators offer lower output impedance, faster response, and better noise rejection than standard three-terminal regulators. The result is an incredibly natural sound, with a pitch-black background and a shocking level of detail.
This user guide includes setup and basic operating instructions for your new player. We are continually adding new features to Transporter, some new capabilities may not be covered here. You can fi nd additional information about the latest Transporter features, as well as detailed documentation for developers, on our web site,
http://www.slimdevices.com/.
Transporter is powered by the open source SlimServer™ software, which is the result of the efforts of software developers worldwide working together in an open community. We are grateful to everyone who helped create Transporter.
We hope you enjoy Transporter and that you’ll tell a friend about our products.

Input Output
1. Connect an output from the Transporter to your stereo amplifi er, preamp, or receiver with the appropriate interconnect.
The most common connection uses the unbalanced analog output red and white RCA
connectors to connect to a line-level input, such as a CD or TAPE input. (Note: Transporter’s outputs are not compatible with PHONO inputs.) More details about Transporter’s audio connections are available in the Audio Connections section.
2. If you are using an ethernet network connection with your Transporter, connect an ethernet cable from your hub or switch to Transporter. Otherwise, screw the included wireless antennae to the two gold antenna connectors on Transporter.
3. Put the two AA batteries into the remote control.
4. Connect the included power cable to Transporter and plug it in.
You can leave Transporter plugged in all the time. When not in use, it enters standby mode
and dims the display. You can also dim the display by pressing the the remote or front panel.

Audio Connections
Transporter has a host of both digital and analog connections to choose from. Picking the one that’s right for you depends on how your current audio system is set up. For instance, if balanced inputs are available on your amplifi er, preamplifi er, or receiver, it’s usually better to use those rather than the unbalanced inputs.
Transporter also provides a set of digital input connections to allow other digital audio sources to use Transporter as a digital to analog converter. You can select from these inputs using the remote control or front panel controls.
Transporter has the following audio connections available:
Analog Outputs
• Unbalanced RCA connections (2Vrms/5.7Vpp, 100 ohms impedance, with selectable attenuation)
• Balanced XLR connectors (3Vrms/8.5Vpp, 100 ohms impedance, fi xed attenuation)
Digital Outputs and Inputs
• TOSLINK optical connector (660nm wavelength, IEC-958 / S/PDIF encoding)
• Capacitor-coupled coaxial RCA connector (500mVpp into 75 ohms, IEC-958 / S/ PDIF encoding)
• Transformer-coupled coaxial BNC connector (500mVpp into 75 ohms, IEC-958 / S/PDIF encoding)
• Balanced XLR connector (4.7Vpp into 110 ohms, AES/EBU encoding)
• Word clock input for use with an external word clock generator
Using Transporter as a Standalone DAC
You can use Transporter as a standalone digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to convert S/PDIF or AES/EBU signals from a CD player or other digital source to analog for connection to an amplifi er or preamp.
When not connected to SlimServer or SqueezeNetwork (you will see Transporter Setup on the top line of the display), use the remote control or knob to scroll to the digital input you’d like to use then press the right arrow button, the center of the knob or the button. That input will remain selected until you choose another or connect to SlimServer or SqueezeNetwork.
If Transporter is connected to SlimServer or SqueezeNetwork, scroll to the Digital Inputs menu, go right, then press
