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.
Connect the loop antenna's wires to the AM antenna
Make sure to connect:
white wire q right terminal
black wire q left terminal (GND)
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 75 socket,
extend the lead and tune the tuner to your favorite station
(see page 6). 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.
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
In the following cases, function buttons may not work
· When the system is damaged by some electrical shock.
· When the power is irregular or has electrical noises.
In these cases, press the RESET switch once or twice with a
pencil or a ball-point pen lightly.
All the settings kept in memory (such as preset stations and
timer settings) will be erased.
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
Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not
disconnect the AM loop antenna.
LINE OUT jack
Analog 2-channel audio signal is output from this jack.
Connect this jack to the TUNER jack of the amplifier (A-
H300mkIII) with an RCA cable.
Make sure to connect:
white plug q white jack (L: left channel)
red plug q red jack (R: right channel)
REMOTE CONTROL jack
If you have TEAC A-H300mkIII, convenient system control
operations are available:
· When you tune in a station, the input selector of the A-
H300mkIII is set to "TUNER" automatically.
· You can use the system remote control unit RC-957 or RC-
1091 (provided with A-H300mkIII) to operate this unit.
Connect the REMOTE CONTROL jack to the REMOTE
CONTROL jack (A or B) of A-H300mkIII or PD-H300mkIII
with the provided remote control connection cord.
Read the owner's manual of A-H300mkIII for details.
The remote control unit is not provided with this unit.
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.
If the power supply is interrupted for 14 days or longer, all
the settings kept in memory (such as preset stations and
timer settings) will be erased.
It will take more than 3 days after plugging the power cord
into the outlet to charge enough electricity for the memory
