To ensure years of enjoyment from your NADY AUDIO PMX Series, please read and understand this manual thoroughly before using the unit.

INSPECTION

Your NADY AUDIO PMX Series powered mixer was carefully packed at the factory in packaging designed to protect the units in shipment. Before installing and using your unit, carefully examine the packaging and all contents for any signs of physical damage that may have occurred in transit.

[Please note: Nady Systems is not responsible for shipping damage. If your unit is damaged, do not return to Nady, but notify your dealer and the shipping company (if shipped to you) immediately to make a claim. Such claims must be made by the consignee in a timely manner.]

SETUP AND OPERATOIN

Parts of the unit can become very warm during use. This is normal during operation. Care should be taken to ensure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling. Also, do not place the PMX Series powered mixer on high temperature devices such as power amplifiers, etc., or the unit may overheat in operation.

Although the unit’s chassis is shielded against radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic interference (EMI), extremely high fields of RF and EMI should be avoided.

Please make sure that the power unit supplied is marked for the correct voltage in your area (120VAC/60 Hz or 230VAC/50 Hz). Power requirements for electrical equipment differ from area to area. In new installations and portable sound systems, or any situation in which the AC power is in question, it is wise to confirm the voltage and use the appropriate power supply unit before connecting it to power sources.

Europe (except UK): 230V, 50Hz

UK and Australia: 240V, 50Hz

USA and Canada: 120V, 60 Hz

For other areas, please check with local authorities.

When ready to operate, plug the AC cord into the power source. Make sure that the unit is turned off before connecting to the AC power source to avoid possible loud transients which can damage your speakers or your ears. Set the Channel (13), Group (22), and Master Stereo Volume Faders (24) to minimum to further reduce the chance of undesired noise when first powering up. Turn on your PMX Series powered mixer by pressing on the rear panel Power On/Off Switch (38).

For other areas, please check with local authorities.
