Connection
REMOTE CONTROL SELECTOR
If the REMOTE CONTROL jack is connected to the A­H300mk
III , select ‘SYSTEM’. When operating the remote
control unit provided with the A-H300mk
III , point it towards
the remote sensor of A-H300mk
III .
If the REMOTE CONTROL jack is NOT connected to the A­H300mkIII , select ‘SINGLE’.
LINE OUT jack
Analog 2-channel audio signal is output from this jack. Connect this jack to the TUNER jack of the amplifier (A­H300mk
III ) with an RCA cable.
Make sure to connect:
white plug q white jack (L: left channel)
red plug q
red jack (R: right channel)
DIGITAL OUT terminal
DAB’s digital audio signal is output from this terminal. If you want to record digitally, or decode the signal using an external digital decoder, connect to the digital input terminal of a digital recording device or a decoder using a commercially-available optical digital cable.
<
When inserting the plug of the optical cable, the protective shutter of the terminal will open and you should hear it click into position when fully inserted. Be careful that you do not force the plug, because this could result in damage to the protective shutter, the cable, or the unit itself.
AC Power Cord
After all other connections are complete, connect the plug to the AC wall socket.
Be sure to connect the power cord to an AC outlet which supplies the correct voltage. Hold the power plug when plugging or unplugging the power cord.

Connecting Antennas (AM/FM)
FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor FM antenna. Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.
<
Disconnect the FM indoor antenna when using an outdoor antenna.
< If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver sufficient
reception (often due to being too far from the transmitter or in a concrete building, etc.), it may be necessary to use an outdoor AM antenna. Use either a high quality commercial AM antenna or, if not available, an insulated wire more than 5 m long, strip one end, and connect this to the terminal as shown. The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or indoors near a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.
Note:
Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect the AM loop antenna.
AM Indoor Loop Antenna
The high-performance AM loop antenna provided with this unit is sufficient for good reception in most areas. To stand the loop antenna on a surface, fix the claw to the slot in the antenna base.
Make sure to connect: white wire q right terminal
black wire q left terminal
AM Loop Antenna
AM Outdoor Antenna
Connect the loop antenna’s wires to the AM antenna terminals.
Place the antenna on a shelf or hang it on a window frame, etc., in the direction which gives the best reception. Keep all other wires such as power cords, speaker wires or interconnect wires as far away as possible from the antenna.
FM Indoor Antenna
Connect the lead-type FM antenna to the FM 75Ω socket, extend the lead and tune the tuner to your favorite station (see page 13). Adjust the antenna in a suitable location like a window frame or wall until the reception is best and then affix the antenna in that position using thumb tacks, push pins or any other suitable means.
5
DAB Indoor Antenna
Connect the T-type DAB antenna to the DAB socket, extend the lead vertically and attach it to a window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like, where reception is best.
DAB Outdoor Antenna
In an area where DAB signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor DAB antenna. There are two main types available.
Dipole:
For use in marginal signal areas. This type of antenna is omnidirectional and should increase the strength of all DAB stations being received.
Multi-element antenna:
Also for use in marginal or poor signal areas. This type of antenna is directional and has high gain. This antenna needs to be pointed at the transmitter you want to listen to.

Connecting Antennas (DAB)
< You can check the antenna adjustment or positioning for the
best reception by viewing the signal strength on the display.
The signal strength is displayed as a bar graph by pressing the ENTER button once.
< It is possible to use a TV or FM antenna with your DAB tuner
as this is normally mounted externally. This may give a stronger signal than a simple internal antenna, however it would not be tuned specifically for DAB reception.
You would need to change the plug on your TV/FM antenna to an F type, and it may also be necessary to use a signal booster to enhance the signal.
