Getting started

1 Unpack the I15

Your I15 is supplied with:

  • Mains cable
  • IR/Trigger cable

If any of these items are missing please contact your supplier. We recommend you retain the packaging in case you need to transport the unit at a later date.

Note that the I15 is supplied with a protective film on the display glass. Remove the film for a clearer whiter display.

2 Connect speakers

The I15 is designed to be connected directly to a pair of loudspeakers.

  • Connect the red wire from each speaker to the red terminal marked + and the black wire from each speaker to the black terminal marked –.

The terminals can accept speaker cables terminated with spade terminals, banana plugs, or bare wires.

To connect bare wires unscrew the terminal, pass the bare wire through the hole in the terminal bolt, and clamp the wire in place by screwing the terminal back down hand tight.

Analog outputs

The I15 provides a variable-level analogue output on the ANALOG OUT output on RCA connectors, to allow you to connect to active speakers.

Analog sources
