Placement and Cabling

Placement

POLARIS should be placed on a solid and stable surface with good ventilation condition. Do not install this product near any heat sources such as radiators or other products (such as amplifiers) that produce heat. Site the product so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, it should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings, or placed in a built in installation such as a bookcase or cabinet that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.

Ventilation Requirement 

POLARIS dissipates up to 50 Watts of power during normal operation. It should be installed in a space with at least one inch of clearance above, behind and on both sides of its enclosure to provide adequate ventilation. Avoid placing it directly above other equipment that produces heat.

 

Check Your AC Mains Voltage

POLARIS is shipped with its mains voltage preset for operations in the destination country / region. The mains voltage setting is written on the back of the unit, besides the power cord socket. Mains voltage setting is not intended to be changed by the user. If it needs to be changed, contact your dealer or AURALiC.

The power cord has a three-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin for grounding). It will only fit into a grounding type power outlet. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer or AURALiC. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounded type plug.

POLARIS MUST BE USED WITH CORRECT MAINS VOLTAGE AND PROPERLY EARTHED!
