USING THE JUKEBOX WITHOUT A FULL BASKET OF RECORDS
When using the jukebox without a full basket of records (e.g. one record in each basket position from 100 – to 169) please ensure records are evenly spaced out around the basket as failure to do so can result in an unbalance basket which may cause the machine to a fault.

To disable the shuffle play feature press the SHUFFLE OFF button on the remote control. “Shoff” will be displayed briefly on the display and the decimal place indicator will be removed.
This feature automatically plays disks in ascending order e.g. 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, and so on. The mechanism commences playback from its current position (e.g 12A) and then plays sequentially until the feature is disabled. e.g. 12B, 13A, 13B, 14A etc.
To enable sequential mode, first press SHUFFLE OFF on the remote handset (FIG 5.0) to ensure no other shuffle modes are active.

To disable Sequential mode press “SHUFFLE OFF” on the remote control (FIG5). The decimal place indicator will be removed.
Sequential play cannot be activated if shuffle mode is already enabled.
If shuffle mode (6.5) is enabled when sequential playback is already active, shuffle mode will override sequential play.
If a track is playing at the time shuffle or sequential mode is enabled, the feature will commence after the currently playing track has ended.
If selections are made whilst shuffle mode or sequential playback is active, the current track will complete playback, then the manually selected track(s) will play. Once playback of the manually selected track(s) is complete, the automatic playback will resume.

The Sound Leisure D1 Digital Amplifier is configured as a stereo 30w setup. The internal single cabinet speaker provides a central stereo image only, so 2 additional outputs (left and right) are provided for the connection of external speakers for a full stereo image.
To connect external speakers
On the rear of the jukebox, the cabinet locates the 2x speaker connection pads (shown right)
Connect a 2 core speaker cable to each of the speaker connection pads, ensuring the positive (+) cable is connected to the red terminal on each speaker connection pad.
Run the speaker cable to the location of the external speakers and connect the speaker cable, also ensuring the positive (+) cable is correctly connected to each speaker.

The audio OUT level from the D1 amplifier is set using the remote control.
To increase or decrease the Audio Output level, use the VOL 1 +/- buttons.
As the volume on the Vinyl Pop is increased, the volume of the external amplifier will also increase. This is useful if the Vinyl Pop is to be connected to a multi-room audio system.
