DKW-8U Receiver

1. Receiver Placement

This unit is designed for desktop use and can be placed on any flat surface that is secure. Do not place, however, on

amplifiers or other equipment that can get hot in operation. This unit is not designed for rackmounting.

2. Powering the Receiver

Plug the 14V/0.4A DC ADAPTER (1) provided into the DC IN jack (2) on the back of the receiver. Then plug the power supply into an AC outlet. The POWER LED (3) will now light and the receiver is operational.

3. Antenna

The DKW-8U receiver is supplied with an attached FOLDING ANTENNA (4). This should be extended fully to obtain maximum range. Optimal antenna position is 45 degrees from the receiver. For maximum range, it

is always best to maintain a line of sight (no obstructions) between the receiver and the transmitter antenna at all times whenever possible.

4. Mute (Squelch)

The DKW-8U has a preset mute (Squelch) internally for maximum range and performance. There is no need to adjust this. In normal operation, the SIGNAL LED

(5) should be lit when the transmitter is transmitted. However, when the signal LED extinguishes, the transmitter is out of range for that given location, and the user should move closer to the receiver to re-establish the radio link.

5. Connecting the Audio Output

The DKW-8U receiver provides with an adjustable 1⁄4” line level AUDIO OUT jack (6).

(Note: As when making any connection, make sure the amplifier or mixing board volume is at the minimum level before plugging in the receiver to avoid possible sound system damage.)

Microphone Connection

(Using the HT-8U handheld microphone or the BT-8U transmitter with either

a headworn or lavalier microphone transmitter)

For microphone use, the 1/4” line level AUDIO OUT can be used. Plug one end of a 1/4” audio cable into the AUDIO OUT JACK

(6) located in the back of the receiver. Plug the other audio cable end to you mixing board input. Make sure the phantom power on your mixing board is turned off and

the volume in turned down when making the audio connections. Start the receiver VOLUME (7) at MINIMUM and adjust until the volume level is optimal.

Instrument Connection

To use the 1/4” line level AUDIO OUT JACK (6) for instrument use, follow the instructions for the Microphone Connection (above), except start the receiver VOLUME (7) at

1/2 MAX and adjust until the volume level is optimal.

(Note: 1:1 with a directly connected cord from the instrument to the amp is with the volume about 3/4 MAX, and MAX volume from the receiver will be about 4dB higher than 1:1. If the volume control is set too high, you may overload your mixer or amp.)

6. AF LED Display

The DKW-8U receiver is equipped with an AF LED DISPLAY (8). The LED lights whenever an audio signal is being transmitted from the transmitter.

(Note: The AF LED Display is not a peak level indicator so it can light continuously during audio signal input to the transmitter.)
