Question about Proton Audio Players & Recorders
Selecting a Time Zone
1. Press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button (Fig. 3) to turn off the atomic time function.
To indicate you are at the off position, the atomic time icon (Fig. 2) will be removed from the display.
2. Toggle through the DST/TIME ZONE button (Fig. 3) until you reach your desired time zone. (P - Pacific Standard Time, M - Mountain Standard Time, C - Central Standard Time, E - Eastern Standard Time)
3. Once you have selected your time zone, press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button again to turn on the atomic time function. To indicate you are at the on position, the atomic time time icon will reappear with flashing antenna bands. (When the antenna bands appear flashing the unit is searching for the atomic time signal.)
4. If the atomic time icon disappears afterwards, the atomic time signal is not available at that moment. Try setting the unit in other locations. Remember to place the unit away from sources of interference such as mobile phones, appliances, TV etc.
5. The atomic time icon will appear on screen if the atomic time reception is successful. (The antenna bands will stop flashing when atomic time reception is successful.) The radio-controlled clock will have a daily synchronization at 1:00 am everyday. If previous attempts of reception were unsuccessful, the home receiver will attempt synchronization each hour until successful. Each reception cycle ranges from 2 - 10 minutes.
Manual Setting of Clock
1. Press the HOUR button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct hour.
2. Press the MIN button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct minute.
3. Press the BACKLIGHT HI/LOW/OFF button (Fig 3) to adjust the backlight intensity.
Note: A PM indicator will appear in the upper left hand corner of the LCD display during the PM hours. Be sure to set the time for the correct 12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).

The original is an incandescent 14V 30mA bulb. Hard to get. Much easier to substitute a Blue or Green 3V 30mA LED, in series with a 470ohm 1W carbon resistor, to reduce the 14V to 3V. The LED will last almost forever. Don't forget that an LED is polarity-sensitive, and must be connected appropriately Long-leg to RED, and Short-leg to BLACK.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning

Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

Neural THX listening.
