Turn on the continental by rotating the volume / power knob clockwise until the power indicator light illuminates.
Set your gain level; High for headphones and low for earphones.
Connect your earphones or headphones to the amplifier with the volume at a low level.
Once connected gradually increase the volume to find a comfortable listening level for you.
Remember that prolonged listening sessions at high volumes can potentially damage your hearing.
Please note that some IEMs may be too sensitive to be used with the cv5 safely.
Charge time from a fully exhausted battery is approximately 4 hours to full.
It is recommended to not listen and charge your cv5 while using the supplied power charger.
If you require listening while also charging the amplifier, please charge your Cv5 via standard USB port from any computer.
The CV5 uses a high-grade military NOS vacuum tube for amplification.
This tube is sensitive to cell phone signals and TDMA noise.
For critical listening please keep your cell phone in ‘airplane mode’ or move it away from the CV5 while listening.
