+My stereo signals are a bit noisy. How can I resolve this problem?

Add more radiators. When you are transmitting stereo signals, the signal is degraded slightly. Increasing your radiator coverage will help mitigate this.

+Can I use a mono or stereo earphone with the LR-44?


+How does the receiver know if the signal is mono or stereo?

It automatically detects the type of signal and responds accordingly.

+What happens when there is no signal from the radiators?

The receiver’s audio signal is muted and after 30 minutes the unit automatically shuts down to conserve battery life.

+How does the user select carriers?

By pressing the SELECT button on the front of the receiver.

+Can the receiver automatically find a carrier?

Yes, it will automatically seek and find all available carriers when the power is turned on. If no carrier is found, the unit will stop on the last used channel.

+How many receivers can be used in a system?

Infinite number - there is no limit.

+How do you replace the batteries in the receiver?

For non-rechargeable batteries (AAA alkaline), remove the battery compartment and replace the batteries with fresh AAA alkaline batteries. For rechargeable NiMH batteries, simply replace the sealed battery pack with a freshly charged pack.

+How do I recharge the NiMH batteries?

Use the Listen LA-350 8-Unit Charging/Storage unit. This unit will charge batteries that are in receivers or out of receivers.
