Operating instructions

After making any connections to your unit, activate the AXR by pressing the Power On button on the front of the unit.



Press the Source button on the front of the unit corresponding to your desired source. Alternatively, you may use the appropriate button on the remote control.

Note: There will be no sound from the receiver if the correct input source button isn’t selected.



To connect a Bluetooth device to AXR:

  1. Press the Bluetooth/Phono button on the front panel or the Bluetooth button on the remote.

"PAIRING" will show on the display.


  1. Consult the instructions of the Bluetooth device to connect to AXR. When successfully connected the display will show your device name.

Note: To add another Bluetooth device, Press and hold the Bluetooth/Phono button to disconnect the current connection and repeat step 2.

The AXR will store up to 8 paired Bluetooth devices.



If you are having problems connecting your Bluetooth device to the AXR, please try the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Ensure that the Bluetooth source has been selected and the AXR is in ‘Pairing’ mode.
  • Ensure that your Bluetooth device is in pairing mode and not already connected to another Bluetooth unit.
  • Forget the AXR from your devices’ list of discoverable Bluetooth items and start the pairing process again.
  • Perform a factory reset on the AXR (see 'Factory Reset' section below).



Use either the Volume Up/Down buttons on the remote control, or the Volume control on the front panel of your unit to change the volume level. The newly selected level will be indicated briefly on the front display.

The volume is displayed in minus dB. 0dB is the highest level.

A progressively larger negative number indicates the volume is being reduced.

Adjustments to the bass, treble and balance can be made as follows:

When Auto mode has been selected, press the reverse ‘Skip/Scan’ button to scroll down through the station frequencies or press the forward ‘Skip/Scan’ button to scroll up through the station frequencies.

The tuner will stop at the first strong signal it finds. To move to another station simply press the reverse or forward ‘Skip/Scan’ button again.

  2. Use the 'Skip / Scan' button or 'Preset' buttons to select the preset location for the station to be stored to.
  3. Press the 'Mode / Store' button again to confirm your selection.
  4. The radio station will now be assigned to your chosen preset.

Storing Presets

Press the 'FM / AM' button to switch between bands, and the banks of FM and AM presets.
