To privately listen to your Lifestyle® system, you can

hearing damage. It is best to avoid extreme volume when using

The supplied AM and FM antennas connect to the rear
panel of the media center (Figure 10).

outdoor antenna. Before doing this, consult a qualified

center, display, and Acoustimass® module.
AM antenna connection

into the AM antenna jack.
2. Stand the AM antenna on the base or mount the
antenna on a wall, following the instructions
enclosed with the AM antenna.

Connecting the audio from your TV
You may want to connect a source component, such as a
camcorder or game console, directly to your TV. To play
the audio from that source through your Lifestyle® system,
you must connect the audio coming out of the TV to the
If your TV does not have an audio output, you can still
hear the sound of a connected component through the
speakers built into the TV. However, at any other time, it is
best to keep the volume of your TV turned all the way
down for a better surround sound experience.
To connect your TV audio to the Lifestyle® system:
• For a basic analog audio connection, use the
supplied stereo audio cable (with two RCA
connectors at each end, one red and one white). It
connects to left (L) and right (R) audio outputs on the
rear panel of your TV and to the (L and R) TV Audio IN
jacks on the media center rear panel (see Figure 13).
• If your TV provides a digital audio out connector,
connect a digital audio cable. When making the
digital audio connection, use either a single coaxial
cable or an optical cable.
Do not disconnect the analog connection described
above. The analog connection ensures consistent
sound in the event of a weak digital signal.
• If your TV provides both fixed (FIX) and variable (VAR)
audio output jacks, use the fixed jacks for higher quality.
Be sure to select Fixed in your TV setup menu.

number until the display module briefly indicates

• For numbers 10 through 20, press the first
number, then press and hold the second
number until the Lifestyle® display module
briefly indicates PRESET:xx SET.
Once a preset is added, you can tune to that station by
pressing the preset number.

and hold zero until the message PRESET:xx ERASED
briefly appears on the display module.

the next you need to check is the radio band (Am, Fm, etc) and secondly the antenna. Any of these two can cause the radio not to speak out.
Make sure the radio antenna is well connected to the radio and check the radio band to make sure its at the correct frequency.
