CANTON your_World / FAQs.
What is a transmitter (source)?
A transmitter (source) transmits your beats to the receivers.
The your_World HiFi music system transmits your beats from your iPod/iPhone, your computer or another signal source (TV, AVR etc.) wirelessly throughout the house (within range). For this you need a transmitter (your_Dock or your_Stick) and a receiver (your_Solo or your_Duo, and, if wished, also your_Sub). your_World allows you to operate up to three different transmitters at the same time. Each transmitter needs to be allocated its own channel (colour). Once the same channel (colour) has been set for both the transmitter and the receiver, these your_World components are ready to play music.
What is a receiver?
A receiver receives your beats from a transmitter (source).
The your_World HiFi music system transmits your beats from your iPod/iPhone, your computer or another signal source (TV, AVR etc.) wirelessly throughout the house (within range). For this you need a transmitter (your_Dock or your_Stick) and a receiver (your_Solo or your_Duo, and, if wished, also your_Sub). In your_World you can operate several receivers in parallel. This way you can listen to your beats from one or several transmitters in different rooms.
What is a channel?
A channel is the selected transmission frequency.
The wireless your_World HiFi music system works on three channels (frequencies), each marked by a colour (red, green or blue). The transmission of your beats takes place on a different frequency according to the channel (colour) selected. These frequencies do not influence each other.
How do I change the channels (red / green / blue) on the transmitters (your_Stick, your_Dock)?
On your_Stick the channel can be changed using the channel button on the top; in the case of your_Dock you need to use the channel button on the back of the device.
What is a zone?
A zone is a group of different your_World receivers.
All your_World receivers have a zone switch. This establishes which your_World receivers are linked together to create a group (zone). Within a zone the "Power", "Volume", "Mute" and "Change Transmitter" functions are controlled in a synchronised fashion. For this you first need to set all the receivers that you want to belong to a particular zone to the same channel (red, green or blue). Then you can use the zone switch on the back of your receiver to determine which listening zone they should be in. Simply press one of the volume keys on the remote control to synchronise all the receivers belonging to that zone. If a receiver does not play in a synchronised fashion within a zone (e.g. it plays at a different volume), you should check the zone switch on this receiver.
Can I use your_World in parallel with my WLAN environment?
Yes, your_World can be operated in parallel with a WLAN network.
your_World works like WLAN and Bluetooth in the 2.4 GHz area, where it occupies one of the three channels 1, 6 or 11 with each transmitter (source). If there are any transmission problems (low data rates or interruptions), the WLAN Router should be set to one of the free channels (preferably to 3,4,8,9 or 13).
Do I need to install any software?
No, your_Stick is a Plug’n’Play product.
No software needs to be installed for Windows (from XP, Service Pack 2) or for MAC computers (from OS X 10.xx).
What input level does the Line-In connection from your_Stick need?
The Line-In connection from your_Stick is designed for an input level of 2 volts (effective).
your_Stick is connected via USB but there is no playback
possibly the your_Stick must be selected as an external output device in System Preferences under "Sounds and Audio Devices" (Windows) or in the system settings under "Audio" (Mac OS).
What input level does the Line-In connection from your_Dock need?
The Line-In connection from your_Dock is designed for an input level of 2 volts (effective).
Can I set the volume individually in the different zones?
Yes, the volume can be set individually in the different zones.
For each transmitter (source) up to 3 different listening zones (groups) can be set up per channel (colour). Within a zone the "Power", "Volume", "Mute" and "Change Transmitter" functions can be controlled in a synchronised fashion. See also: What is a zone?
How do I return your_Duo / your_Solo to the default setting?
It is easy to return your_Duo / your-Solo to the default setting
After switching on ("Power" button) simply press the "Mute" button within 3 seconds and the default setting will resume ("blue" channel, medium volume ).
How can I tell which your_Duo loudspeaker is meant to go on the left or on the right?
The your_Duo loudspeakers are marked on the back with a (L) for left and a (R) for right. The electronics are pre-programmed in line with these markings.
How do I connect your_Sub with other your_World components?
The your_Sub is linked in the same way all other your_World components
The your_Sub simply needs to be set to the channel (red, green or blue) of the chosen transmitter. Then use the zone switch to set it to the same space as the other your_World receiver or receivers (your_Solo or your_Duo) so that the "Power", "Volume", "Mute" and "Change Transmitter" functions can all be controlled in a synchronised fashion.
