    Plug Fitting Instructions (UK only)
    The cord supplied with this appliance is factory-fitted with a UK mains plug fitted
    with a 5-amp fuse inside. If it is necessary to change the fuse, it is important that
    a 5-amp fuse is used. If the plug needs to be changed because it is not suitable
    for your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate
    plug fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug must then be disposed
    of safely, as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard.
    Should it be necessary to fit a 3-pin BS mains plug to the power cord, the wires
    should be fitted as shown in this diagram. The colours of the wires in the mains
    lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying
    the terminals in your plug. Connect them as follows:
    The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
    connected to the terminal which is marked with
    the letter ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
    The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
    connected to the terminal which is marked with
    the letter ‘L’ or coloured RED.
    The wire which is coloured GREEN/YELLOW
    must be connected to the terminal which is
    marked with the letter ‘E’ or coloured GREEN.
    If a standard 13-amp (BS 1363) plug is used, a 5-amp fuse must be fitted or, if any
    other type of plug is used, a 5-amp fuse must be fitted, either in the plug or adaptor,
    or on the distribution board.

    Digital Outputs

    The Stream Magic 6 digital outputs enable a separate DAC (digital to analogue
    converter) or digital recording device to be connected. Refer to the ‘Operating
    instructions’ section for more information.
    Two concurrent digital outputs are available. Note that these outputs pass through
    the currently selected audio source un-processed, i.e. no volume control or upsampling is performed on the digital outputs.
    Coaxial – To obtain best results, use a high quality 75 ohm digital RCA interconnect
    cable (not one designed for normal audio use).
    Toslink Optical – Use a high quality TOSLINK fibre optic interconnect cable
    designed specifically for audio use.

    IR (Infra Red) Emitter In

    A 3.5mm mini-jack socket that enables modulated IR commands from multi-room
    or IR repeater systems to be received by the Stream Magic 6.
    Note: Commands received by the IR Emitter In socket are not looped out of the
    Control Bus. Refer to the ‘Custom Installation’ section for more information.

    Control Bus

    In – An RCA phono socket that enables un-modulated commands from multi-rooms
    systems or other components to be received by the Stream Magic 6.
    Out – An RCA phono socket that provides control bus output commands for further
    downstream units. This can be useful if using the iPhone app to control the volume
    on an azur amplifier.
    10

    USB Audio In

    A USB B type socket is fitted to the Stream Magic 6 to enable the playback of audio
    from a personal computer running either Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS X
    operating systems, most Linux distributions are also suitable.
    Note: Always use a high quality USB connection cable certified as USB HiSpeed. USB cable connections longer than 3m may result in inconsistent audio
    performance.
    Always turn the Volume to minimum, switch to another input
    or turn the Stream Magic 6 off before plugging/unplugging
    cables to the USB input or whilst booting up/shutting down
    your PC/Mac.

    Alternatively an optional Cambridge Audio BT100 Bluetooth Adaptor can be
    plugged in here adding wireless streaming audio capability directly from most
    phones, tablets and laptops. See later section for details.

    Ground Lift Switch

    The Ground Lift Switch enables the USB interface earth to be disconnected from
    the Stream Magic 6 chassis earth. Disconnecting (lifting) the earth can be useful if
    electronic hum is heard through the speakers when the USB input is selected. The
    switch should otherwise be left in the Ground position.
    12

    Balanced Audio Output

    The Stream Magic 6 features balanced outputs on two XLR sockets. Balanced
    outputs provide slightly better audio performance and can reject cable-borne noise
    and interference when used with equipment with balanced inputs.
    Note: XLR connectors should be wired as follows:
    Pin 1: Ground
    Pin 2: Hot (in-phase)
    Pin 3: Cold (phase-inverted)
    13

    Unbalanced Audio Output

    A conventional RCA phono stereo output for connection to the line-level inputs of
    an amplifier. Use a high quality stereo RCA phono interconnect cable intended for
    analogue audio signals.

    Standby/On

    When powering up from standby the Standby/On, LED will flash approximately
    once a second as the unit boots up, the display will initially be blank before
    'StreamMagic' appears.
    Note that the full startup sequence can take approximately 30 seconds to
    complete.

    Idle mode
    To enable Idle mode, it must first be activated within the setup menus. Go to
    “Settings -> Advanced -> Idle Mode” and set to “On”.
    Idle mode, when enabled, allows Stream Magic 6 to enter a lower power
    suspended state using the Standby/On button. The display is turned off and many
    of the internal processes and circuits are disabled to reduce power consumption.
    However the difference between Idle and Standby is that in Idle mode, power
    remains connected to the main controller, Ethernet and Wi-Fi sections.
    In Idle mode, networking functionality remains alive in the background. This means
    that Stream Magic 6 can be quickly woken up out of the suspended state into
    an operational state using not only the front panel, the infra-red remote and the
    control bus, but also the iOS app running on the iPhone or iPad. This is not possible
    when the unit is in full Standby mode.
    Short presses of the Standby/On button then toggle the Stream Magic 6 between
    On and Idle.

    Fast Scroll feature
    When scrolling through lists of tracks or stations, normally each click of the rotary
    encoder or press of the remote control navigator button steps to the next item in
    the list. For long lists this can become tiresome.
    The Fast Scroll feature, which is always enabled, detects how fast the front panel
    rotary encoder is being rotated or how long the remote control navigator buttons
    have been pressed. The faster the encoder rotation or the longer the button press,
    the bigger the jump up or down the list with each step.
    If navigating using the front panel rotary encoder, reducing the speed of rotation
    then decreases the step size again.
    If navigating using the remote control, you need to release the button to stop the
    scroll and press-and-hold the button again to begin the scroll speed ramp-up, or
    single-press the button to step one item in the list at a time.

    Scroll Stop feature
    When scrolling through a lists of tracks or stations one line at a time, the list “wraps
    around”. For example, if scrolling down a list and you reach the end, the next step
    down actually displays the top of the list, making it easier to go quickly from Z to A.
    The Scroll Stop feature operates in conjunction with Fast Scroll (described above)
    to prevent you accidentally over-shooting the end of the list and wrapping round to
    the top of the list again in a continuous loop.
    If you are Fast Scrolling up or down and you reach the bottom/top of the list,
    Stream Magic 6 stops scrolling at the end. To scroll back or to wrap around, you
    need to briefly stop turning the rotary encoder, or if using the remote control, lift off
    and repress the navigation button.

    Getting connected

    The Stream Magic 6 is able to receive and play back media from several distinct
    types of source. Here we have attempted to give an overview of the various types of
    service available and the terminology you may encounter.

    Basic connections

    ENGLISH

    Overview

    Internet Radio
    These are ‘radio’ stations broadcast over the internet. Currently the StreamMagic
    range can access about 20,000 internet radio stations all sorted by us into
    Location, Language and Genre. The list of available stations is constantly
    maintained and automatically updated to your unit via the internet. If you register
    on the StreamMagic website (www.stream-magic.com) you will also be able to
    browse the stations and set presets on your units from your PC.
    You can also add stations to your units that are currently not in the Stream Magic's
    Radio database, suggest new stations to us and more. There are also links and
    help for setting up third-party Streaming Services from a wide variety of other
    suppliers. Other Stream Magic features will be launched in the future, check the
    website from time to time to see the latest developments.

    Streaming Services
    Streaming Services are similar to Internet Radio but come from other suppliers and
    often have an element of interaction with the user. Because Streaming Services
    generally allow the user some choice over the content they listen to, they are also
    licensed differently to iRadio by the music companies and often each service only
    has arrangements in certain countries and may also charge a subscription for
    membership.

    Network connections

    Examples of such services are Aupeo!, Pandora, Rhapsody, SIRIUS/XM, Live365
    and others. All allow some control of the content from 'play me something that
    sounds like U2' to the ability to select and play whole albums of your choice. Some
    also offer the ability to download content for use off-line as well.

    • A broadband internet connection (such as ADSL) to a suitable internet service
    provider (ISP).

    The Stream Magic 6 supports many of these services, navigate to Streaming
    Services on the unit for a list or even better check out our website at www.streammagic.com for more details of which services are available in your area, what they
    do and how to sign up. These services come from third parties and although we
    support connections to them they do not come from us and we are not responsible
    for their service in any way. Your account will be with the service, we are merely
    acting as a website to make the connection simpler and more convenient plus we
    support the correct software on our unit to allow playback and browsing of their
    content.

    Network Media
    The Stream Magic 6 supports a wide range of compressed formats; MP3, AAC,
    WMA and Ogg Vorbis CODEC types are all supported, plus for true audiophile
    use it also supports either uncompressed PCM (in a WAV container) or losslessly
    compressed FLAC, both can contain from 16-bits/44.1kHz from CDs right up to
    24-bit/96kHz for better than CD quality from suitable download sites.
    Note: For this to work your server will also need to support the CODEC you wish to
    play as some have limitations and may not serve FLAC for instance. Always check
    that the server you wish to use also supports your favoured CODECs.
    Also for lossless/uncompressed formats both the server and network connection
    will need to sustain the high bitrate necessary.
    Note: It is not recommended to use Wi-Fi connections for content above 16 bits
    44.1/48kHz if lossless/uncompressed.

    Before you can use your Stream Magic 6 for iRadio/Streaming you must have the
    following:

    • A network connection either wirelessly via 802.11b/g or n Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet
    connection (10 or 100 M bits/sec via an RJ45 connection).
    Note: If you wish to play 24-bit/48kHz or 24-bit/96kHz content from a UPnP server,
    a wired Ethernet connection will be required as the high data rate of these files is
    beyond most Wi-Fi networks capability.
    In many cases the broadband modem, router and wireless access point will be a
    single combined unit supplied by your Internet Service Provider or bought from a
    computer store.
    If your wireless network is configured to use Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or
    Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) data encryption then you will need to know your WEP
    or WPA key so you can get the Stream Magic 6 to communicate with the network.
    IMPORTANT:
    Before you continue, make sure that your wireless access point or router is
    powered up and working with your broadband internet service (use your computer
    to verify this). To get this part of the system working you must read the instructions
    supplied with the wireless access point or router.
    The Stream Magic 6 can be configured to connect to a Wired or Wireless network
    or has an (default) Auto setting. In Auto the Stream Magic 6 looks for a each
    connection type and selects whichever is present. You can also force the unit to
    one or the other connection type, see later Settings section.

    Connecting to a wired network

    USB Media
    The Stream Magic 6 also supports USB Media from USB Flash-disks or USB
    hard-drives and has two USB1.1 ports for this purpose. Here the Stream Magic 6
    simply browses the folders present on the media attached and displays them. Only
    content that the Stream Magic 6 can play will be shown. This feature is provided for
    convenient access to temporary storage devices.
    It is however highly recommended that UPnP is used for continued use of stored
    media as the UPnP system is able to support album art, sophisticated content
    browsing and filtering and other features not possible with simple folder browsing.
    Note: Currently only the FAT32 file system is supported.

    Podcasts
    Podcasts are archived audio recordings downloadable over the internet. Often
    podcasts are recordings of previous live broadcasts or episodic content.
    The Stream Magic 6 supports various third party podcast services, navigate to
    Podcasts on the unit for the list available in your area. In addition the Stream Magic
    6 supports your own personal choice of podcasts where you know its URL (weblink)
    via the Stream Magic website, see later section.

    Plug one end of a network cable (Category 5/5E straight through Ethernet cable)
    into the LAN port on the back of the unit.
    Note: Only connect the LAN port of the player to an Ethernet port that supports
    10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX. Connecting to any other ports or jacks, such as a phone
    jack, can damage the unit
    The Stream Magic 6 should automatically connect to your network as below via
    DHCP; this means it will be given an IP address by your router automatically.

    Operating instructions
    Connecting to a wireless network

    The Stream Magic 6 home menu consists of 6 items:

    Internet Radio
    Streaming Services
    Media
    Podcasts
    Digital Inputs
    Settings
    These allow acess to the four basic types of media choice plus a Settings menu
    for the unit.
    You can return to this menu at any time by pressing and holding the

    /

    button.

    Simply scroll through the items with the scroll wheel or navigator buttons on the
    remote control and press in the scroll wheel or use the select button on the remote
    to select the item you want.
    Place the Stream Magic 6 in range of your wireless network (usually 10-30m of a
    suitable wireless transmitter, although this is affected by walls and the construction
    of your building) and turn it on, via the back panel switch and then on the front
    panel.
    The Stream Magic 6 will automatically connect and obtain an IP address from your
    wireless network. For advanced users, if you would like to give your Stream Magic 6
    a static IP address, then see the 'Network config' section of the manual.
    Note: If you make a mistake at any point, you can always press the
    back to the previous screen.

    button to go

    The unit will now scan for all available wireless networks and will display “Scanning”.

    Internet Radio
    The Stream Magic Internet Radio service brings thousands of internet radio
    stations to you. The sheer choice available on the internet allows you to find new
    music, listen to stations in your native language (or perhaps if you are learning
    another one), from your home town or by your Genre of choice.
    It has to be said that the audio quality of internet radio varies greatly dependant
    on the bitrate and compression technology used by the broadcaster, but the choice
    more than makes up for this. Internet Radio allows you to explore and find new
    music from all over the world.
    Note: As an 'aggregator' service we are simply organising the browsing and
    connection process for these stations so that you don’t have to manually search for
    them or type in any URLs (web links) etc to access them. Whilst we regularly check
    the stations to make sure they are still transmitting reliably and in reasonable
    quality we are not responsible for their content in any way.
    As well as the thousands of stations we offer if you want to listen to a particular
    station that is not included in our service you can add it via the Stream Magic
    website at www.stream-magic.com, see later section. You can also visit the www.
    stream-magic.com website and put in a request suggesting new stations for us to
    add to the service. We welcome your feedback.

    If it can’t find one then the display will say: “No Wireless Networks Found”. If this
    happens then you need to either move the Stream Magic 6 nearer your wireless
    access point or investigate any issues with your wireless network.
    When the Stream Magic 6 finds your wireless network, it displays the broadcast
    name (ESSID) for the access point – this is a name allocated to the access point
    by whoever set up the network, it may either be a default name for your router/
    wireless or may be a more familiar name such as “Johns Wi-Fi” etc. If your Stream
    Magic 6 finds more than one wireless network you can simply choose which one
    you want to connect to. Turn the rotary dial to see the ESSID for each wireless
    network.

    It is not necessary to register your Stream Magic 6 to use the free Stream Magic
    Internet Radio service but by registering you will be able to edit settings on your
    Stream Magic 6 via the website, manage your presets, set up new 3rd party
    Streaming Services and more.

    How to use Internet Radio

    Press and hold the

    When the ESSID for the wireless network you want to connect to is displayed on
    the screen, press the SELECT button. If your network is not configured with an
    encryption code, the screen should say “Connecting to network” then “Network
    OK”.
    If the screen displays either “Enter WEP key” or “Enter WPA key”, then the network
    is using one of the supported encryption systems: Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
    or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). You now need to enter your correct WEP or WPA
    code. The person who set up the wireless network in the first place will know what
    this code is (or be able to reset it to a new known code); if that person is not you,
    then you need to find out what it is.
    After 3 seconds, the display goes into the code entry mode. To enter the code, use
    the rotary dial to select each character of the code in turn, pressing the SELECT
    button after entering each character.
    Note: The WEP and WPA codes are case sensitive, so you must enter them exactly.
    After entering the final character, use the rotary dial to select the
    character and
    press the SELECT button. It’s a little fiddly but you will only need to do this once.
    The Stream Magic 6 will remember this code and use it automatically from now on.
    The unit should now be able to connect to the network.
    Note: We recommend rebooting your Stream Magic 6 to search for any
    firmware updates, as new firmware may have been released since your unit was
    manufactured.

    for example Classic Rock, Sport, News, etc.
    Search– Enables you to search for a station you know the name of. Enter the full
    name or first part of the name for your desired station. The Stream Magic 6 will
    bring up a list of all stations that contain a word that starts with your search term.
    Note: Although we check the stations for continuity of service, some radio stations
    do not broadcast 24 hours per day, and some stations may not always be on-line.

    search for stations by minimum bit rate, etc and also the facility to add non-Stream
    Magic internet radio stations as presets if you know the station’s URL.

    The Stream Magic 6 can access media from UPnP/DNLA Servers or USB Media
    connected via USB. The Stream Magic 6 displays the following submenus:

    Media
    UPnP Servers
    USB Media
    Queue
    UPnP is by far the preferred method as it allows for browsing by artist, album and
    other methods, has support for control from Wi-Fi controller and the media can be
    shared amongst several devices.

    UPnP servers

    To add further Stream Magic products to your existing Stream Magic account
    (perhaps you want a second or third Stream Magic in a different room) then this
    can be done by accessing the ‘Players’ tab in Stream Magic and clicking on the
    ‘Add a player’ link.
    You can then choose to copy all or some of the existing presets from your current
    Stream Magic to the new one.
    Note: You can register as many products as you like and manage the presets etc.
    across several products which could be in different parts of the world all seamlessly
    from your Stream Magic website.

    Streaming Services

    The Stream Magic 6 supports a range of streaming services from other suppliers
    that often have an element of interaction with the user. The Stream Magic 6
    displays the following submenus.

    Streaming Services
    Aupeo!
    Live365
    MP3tunes
    Etc.
    Note: The services available vary depending on your geographical location.
    Because Streaming Services generally allow the user some choice over the content
    they listen to they are licensed differently to iRadio by the music companies and
    often each service only has arrangements is certain countries.
    A subscription fee service might be applicable.

    Your Stream Magic 6 can connect with Computers or Network Attached Storage
    devices that feature a Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) AV Server.
    When using a UPnP server to share your media, the search and selection criteria
    are determined by the server and not the Stream Magic 6, but typically include
    Album, Artist and additional options such as Genre.
    As long as the Stream Magic 6 is correctly configured for your Network it will
    automatically discover and connect to UPnP servers it finds when you go into the
    UPnP playback menu. It will then allow navigation of the menu structure coming
    from that server.
    There are many suitable UPnP server software packages available for PC and Mac.
    Stand-alone servers and Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices with built in
    UPnP server capabilities are also available. Please see the set-up guides on our
    website at http://support.cambridgeaudio.com/.
    Once you have setup a suitable server, navigate to the Media/UPnP Servers menu
    within the Stream Magic 6 and press Select.
    The Stream Magic 6 will perform a scan of your network and report any UPnP
    Servers it finds. If none are found it will display "No Servers Found" on the display.
    If a server or servers are found their names will be displayed and you can select
    which one you’d like to get content from.
    Select the server you want and the Stream Magic 6 will then load the appropriate
    menu structure from that sever. These typically allow you browse your content by
    Album, Artist, Genre etc.It is important to understand that the menu structure here
    is coming from the Server not the Stream Magic 6.
    You can now browse and select any music content in a format the Stream Magic 6
    supports (currently AAC, MP3, WMA, AIFF, FLAC, WAV and Ogg Vorbis).
    Note: Not all servers support serving of all these formats. Always make sure the
    server you choose also supports your formats of choice. For example, Windows
    Media Server does not currently serve FLAC format.

    Examples of such services are Pandora, Rhapsody, Live365, SIRIUS/XM,
    Mp3Tunes and others.
    When you enter this menu the ones that are available to you in your country will be
    shown. Those that are free to use or have a free to use version will work 'straight
    out of the box' Others will guide you to the relevant sign up page, should you so
    wish.
    For more details on what these services offer, please go to our www.stream-magic.
    com website, links to each service can also be found here.
    Also via the website you can prevent services appearing in this menu that you do
    not wish to sign up to.

    Alphanumeric Search

    USB Media

    This is a search function menu inserted by the Stream Magic 6 into the browse tree
    of UPnP servers that support an external search function.

    The Stream Magic 6 can also playback audio content from standard USB harddrives and thumb drives. Simply copy your media files onto your USB drive and then
    connect it to the front or back USB socket of the unit.

    Where available you can select Alphanumeric search and then enter the name or
    partial name of an album or track you wish to find.
    Simply select each character in order using the Navigation/Select dial, rotate to
    each character and then press in to select. You can also use the Skip buttons to
    move forward/back a character,
    to enter a character and
    to delete a
    character.
    Once finished either press the
    button or navigate to the
    symbol and press
    the Enter button on the remote or press the Navigation/Select dial.

    Press the button to get to the top menu. Select the 'Media' menu and then the
    'USB Media' item.
    The Stream Magic 6 will now scan the thumb drive for media files. Once the scan
    is completed, you will then be able to browse the files by selecting 'By Album' or
    'By Artist'.

    Queue

    The Stream Magic 6 then displays all Album names or Track names it can find that
    matches your chosen text.
    You can then simply select your chosen item and press the Enter or
    the remote to start it playing.

    button on

    The 'Now Playing' screen
    Selecting a new Station, Stream or Media item will start playback and display the
    'Now Playing' screen.

    The Stream Magic 6 features a queue function that allows you to select multiple
    albums and/or tracks you’d like to be played in order.

    The current Artist/Album and Track or Station name will be shown with the relevant
    CODEC details (i.e. audio file type and bitrate/samplerate.)

    When in the UPnP or USB Media selection menus, if you highlight a track/artist or
    album name etc and press and hold the Navigation/Select dial (or Enter on the
    remote handset), the Stream Magic 6 will add the current item to the Queue. If it
    is the first item to be queued playback will start. If it is an additional item 'Added to
    queue' will be displayed and that item will be appended to the queue.

    For Media files, the Stream Magic 6 also shows the incremental track playback
    time.

    You can also display the now playing screen at any time by pressing i on the remote
    control or front panel.

    Shuffle
    Accessed via the remote or Stream Magic app only. Press the
    Shuffle On or Off.
    The Stream Magic 6 displays a

    button to toggle

    in the 'Now Playing' screen when Shuffle is On.

    All component parts of that media item will be added, if the item is a track then only
    that track will be added but if the item is an album or an artist then all that albums
    or artists tracks will be added.
    To view the Queue simply navigate back to Queue item in the Media menu or press
    the Reply button whilst a queue is playing. Tracks that are a component part of a
    media item will be shown indented by a below their parent media item as below.

    If the currently selected media item/folder contains fewer than 1000 tracks
    the Stream Magic 6 generates a true random shuffle of those tracks and starts
    playback such that all are played once in a random order and then playback stops.

    The displayed menu shows the queued content for playback, you can navigate to
    any item and select it (via Enter or
    ) to jump to playing that item.
    can
    also be used to delete items from the Queue. The currently playing item will have
    a next to it.

    If more than 1000 tracks are contained the Stream Magic 6 will instead pick a track
    at random for playback then pick another one randomly (and without reference to
    what has gone before) once the current one has finished.

    At the bottom of the Queue a Clear Queue command is available for deleting the
    whole queue.

    This continues until Shuffle is turned Off. Thus for >1000 tracks the playback of
    any track may be repeated randomly.

    During Queue playback the Stream Magic 6 displays a
    screen.

    in the 'Now Playing'

    Repeat
    Accessed via the remote or Stream Magic app only. Press the
    Repeat On or Off.

    button to toggle

    If the currently selected media item is a track the Stream Magic 6 will repeat that
    track, if it is an album or artist etc. the Stream Magic 6 will repeat all tracks in
    that item.
    The Stream Magic 6 displays a

    in the 'Now Playing' screen when Repeat is On.

    Pressing stop will stop the Queue playing but not delete it. Putting the Stream
    Magic 6 into standby will delete the Queue. Putting the Stream Magic 6 into Idle
    mode will not delete the Queue.
    To view the Queue at any time simply navigate back to Queue item in the Media
    menu or press the
    button whilst a queue is playing.

    Playlists

    Digital Inputs

    The Stream Magic 6 also supports various playlist formats. For permanent storage
    of favourite media selections it is recommended to use suitable software to create
    playlists.
    These can then be accessed by the Stream Magic 6 from USB Media or UPnP
    servers that support Playlist serving.

    Podcasts
    Digital Inputs

    The podcast services in your area will be shown.
    These typically allow you to choose different types of podcast by subject, date or
    perhaps popularity etc. It is important to understand that the menu structure here
    is coming from that service and is controlled by them. It may therefore change as
    the service updates its features etc. The Stream Magic 6 displays the following
    submenus.

    Podcasts




    BBC Podcasts
    BlogTalkRadio
    Personal Podcasts

    Note: The services available vary depending on your geographical location.
    There is also a menu item for your own choice of podcasts called Personal
    Podcasts. This allows access to podcast links that can input via the www.streammagic.com website.
    To use Personal Podcasts sign up at www.stream-magic.com and enter the URLs of
    podcasts you’d like the Stream Magic 6 to automatically sync to.

    My Podcasts
    This feature allows you to access podcast on the Stream Magic 6 that are not
    available in the Podcasts services we support.
    This is done by entering the URL for the podcast you want via the Stream Magic
    website. To do this you need to be registered as per the section under Stream
    Magic.
    Simply login to your account and then click on the 'My Podcasts' link. From your 'My
    Podcasts' section, you can add your chosen podcast by entering in the podcast’s
    name and its URL as prompted by the website. Please note, the podcast URL will
    have to be a direct RSS feed which will end with the '.xml' extension e.g. http://
    someurl.com/podcast.xml. Once you have podcasts available in your 'My Podcasts'
    list, you may access these feeds from your Stream Magic 6. These podcasts will be
    available from the menu item: 'Podcasts > My Podcasts'.
    Please note, the podcasts are pushed to your Stream Magic 6 at turn on when the
    unit updates stations list and at intervals thereafter.
    To cause the radio to download Podcasts and new stations list immediately, turn on
    and off your Stream Magic 6 from the front panel or when coming out of Idle mode.

    Presets
    The Stream Magic 6 supports presets. These can be Internet Radio stations or
    streams from most Streaming Services. UPnP/USB Media cannot be set as a
    preset. To add a station/stream to a preset first select that stream for playback
    in the normal way. Now press the
    button this will bring up the presets menu.
    Select the preset location you require and press and hold in the Navigation/Select
    dial to save the current station/stream to that preset.
    Note: Empty presets are not displayed. To save a presets to an empty location,
    select 'Set Preset' and all slots will be displayed.






    USB Audio
    S/PDIF Coax
    Toslink Optical
    BT100 (if fitted)

    The Stream Magic 6 has 3 digital inputs, USB Audio, S/P DIF co-axial and Toslink
    optical. The digital inputs allow you to play audio sent from a separate digital audio
    source such as a PC or CD player with digital outputs. This can optimise sound
    quality, for example where the Stream Magic 6 USB Audio is used instead of the PC
    soundcard or the upsampled and re-clocked low jitter DACs of the Stream Magic 6
    are used instead of a CD player DACs.
    The USB Audio input directly connects to a PC or Mac computer. The Stream Magic
    6 can be setup to stream via the simple setup USB1.1 or the high sample rate
    24-bit/192kHz via USB2.0. Also note that the SP DIF co-axial and TOSLink inputs
    are capable of high sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz, but your source equipment
    and interconnect cables must be capable of this sample rate to achieve this.

    Advanced USB audio
    The Stream Magic 6 is both USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed) and USB 1.1 (Full-speed) USB port
    compatible.
    It should also work with the new USB 3.0 ports where the PC will simply treat the
    Stream Magic 6 as if it were a USB 2.0 or 1.1 device.
    The Stream Magic 6 also supports two USB Audio protocols (not the same as
    the port types themselves) USB Audio 1.0 (which works over USB 1.1 ports and
    supports up to 24-bit/96kHz) or USB Audio 2.0 (which requires a USB 2.0 port and
    can support up to 24-bit/192kHz).
    The default configuration is USB 1.1 and USB Audio 1.0 which works with nearly all
    common operating systems and computer types without drivers and supports up
    to 24-bit/96kHz audio, simply plug in and play.
    In this configuration the Stream Magic 6 is able to work at up to 24-bit/96kHz
    by declaring to your computer that it can handle any sample rate from 32kHz to
    96kHz.
    However in some Windows/Mac operating system variants the operating system
    itself may restrict or fix the output sample rate or re-sample the audio.
    See our online guide at www.cambridge-audio.com/StreamMagic6Support on
    USB Audio for more details on this. With careful choice of playback software and
    settings many pitfalls can be avoided.
    In particular our free Windows USB Audio 2.0 driver (available from our website)
    supports up to 24-bit/192kHz audio and WASAPI Exclusive or ASIO modes that can
    give enhanced performance.
    A brief explanation of your choices are below:

    Use with PCs
    With the Stream Magic 6 switched to USB Audio 1.0 (this is the default setting) the
    Stream Magic 6 will work with the native Windows XP, Vista or 7 Audio 1.0 driver (no
    need to load any new driver) and accept audio up to 24-bit/96kHz.
    With the Stream Magic 6 switched to USB Audio 2.0 the Stream Magic 6 needs
    the Cambridge Audio USB Audio 2.0 Driver to be loaded and can then accept up to
    24-bit/192kHz (and support ASIO and WASAPI Exclusive if required).
    The driver is available from www.cambridge-audio.com/StreamMagic6Support.

    Use with Macs
    No extra drivers are required. With the Stream Magic 6 switched to USB Audio 1.0
    the Stream Magic 6 will work with the native Mac OS-X 10.5 (Leopard) or above
    Audio 1.0 driver and accept audio up to 24-bit/96kHz.

    Recalling presets is done simply by pressing the
    button and selecting the preset
    you want with a brief push of the Navigation/Select dial.

    With the Stream Magic 6 switched to USB Audio 2.0 the Stream Magic 6 works
    with the native Mac OS-X 10.5 (Leopard) or above Audio 2.0 driver and can accept
    audio up to 24-bit/192kHz.

    Note:
    – The Stream Magic 6 loads the presets for display from our Stream Magic servers
    over the internet, thus they can take a few seconds to appear.
    – All saved Presets will be deleted when a unit is registered/re-registered online.

    Use with Linux
    In USB Audio 1.0 mode the Stream Magic 6 will work with most Linux distributions,
    allowing the playback of audio up to 24-bit/96kHz.
    Newer Linux distributions (e.g. Ubuntu 10.04) support USB Audio 2.0 for which
    the Stream Magic 6 should be switched to USB Audio 2.0 to accept audio up to
    24-bit/192kHz.

    Optional BT100 Bluetooth adaptor (not supplied)
    When connected to your Stream Magic 6 this adaptor allows the Stream Magic 6 to
    receive BluetoothAudio (known as Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile or
    A2DP). Contact your dealer for details.
    The BT100 supports Bluetooth A2DP using either the original SBC encoded form or
    the latest higher quality apt-X encoded form.

    For both cases because Linux distributions vary according to their creators' choice
    of software components, including drivers, it is not possible to guarantee operation
    and Audio drivers may need to be loaded.

    SBC and apt-X refer to the encoding used over the wireless Bluetooth interface only
    and not the format your music may be in, which can be any type that your phone/
    laptop or other playing device supports.

    ‘Class drivers’ for generic support of USB Audio Class 1.0 or USB Audio Class 2.0
    devices may be available from the Linux community, we do not supply these.

    Your playing device plays your files then re-encodes the playback before streaming
    it to the BT100 in one of these two formats.

    Bit perfect transfer – ASIO and WASAPI Exclusive mode

    Many phones and laptops now feature Bluetooth with A2DP. SBC should be
    supported by all such devices (it is the madatory format for A2DP).

    The Stream Magic 6 USB interface hardware and software support bit perfect
    transfer.
    Whether or not the audio sent to the Stream Magic 6 is bitperfect (i.e. not resampled
    or mixed etc. by the PC) is actually a function of the playback application and the
    operating systems audio engine.
    By default the standard windows audio drivers (often called WDM drivers) included
    in Windows XP support MME or DirectSound transfer, both of which include a
    kernel mixer and re-sampler stage.
    One way round this is to use ASIO to bypass this. Another is to use a playback
    application that supports its own form of kernel streaming, i.e. if has its own way of
    outputting the audio without invoking the kernel mixer.
    For Windows Vista and Windows 7 a new method of audio transfer is supported
    called WASAPI. This has two modes; Shared and Exclusive. Shared mode is similar
    to MME or DirectSound but in Exclusive mode the kernel mixer/re-sampler is
    bypassed and bit perfect transfer is possible with only one audio playback program
    directed to the soundcard at a time (for instance system sounds are not mixed in).

    apt-X is optional, so check if your sending device supports it, if you wish to achieve
    the highest quality audio transfer.
    Note: The BT100 declares that it can handle both SBC and apt-X to the sending
    device which will then use whichever version it supports.

    What is apt-X?
    apt-X is a high quality CODEC (CODer/DECoder) i.e. a way of compressing audio
    data so it can be sent over a link such as Bluetooth then decompressed on the
    other side (if both devices support it).
    If your Bluetooth audio source does not support apt-X, the BT100 will fall back to
    using the standard SBC CODEC that is supported by all Bluetooth audio devices.
    C

    To ensure bit perfect transfer use a playback application that supports ASIO,
    WASAPI in Exclusive mode (if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7) or some form
    of kernel streaming.
    This is a fast moving area so we would encourage you to check the web for the
    latest media players to support these more audiophile playback options.
    To use ASIO you will need the Cambridge Audio Sound Driver installed and the
    Stream Magic 6 switched to USB Audio 2.0.
    No further settings are required as the driver automatically supports ASIO transfer,
    all that is required is to load and setup suitable ASIO enabled playback software.
    ASIO (Audio Stream Input/Output) is a non Microsoft audio driver protocol for
    Windows originally invented by Steinberg ltd ASIO bypasses some of the normal
    audio path from the playback application through the Windows audio system
    (including the Kernel Mixer) for a more direct path to the Stream Magic 6.
    You will need to install and use a suitable playback application that supports ASIO
    output either natively or via a plugin. One example of such an application with a
    suitable plugin is Foobar, see http://www.foobar2000.org for more details.

    BT100 and Blutooth Audio streaming
    The Stream Magic 6 is compatible with the optional BT100 Bluetooth adaptor
    from Cambridge Audio.

    Pairing

    This menu contains various setup/configuration menus as shown below.

    To begin streaming high quality music from your chosen media source it will first
    need to be paired with the BT100.

    Settings

    A. Insert BT100 into the USB port at the back of your Stream Magic 6.
    B. Wait a moment for the BT100 to be detected. Then double click the button to
    enter pairing mode, the BT100 indicates it is in the pairing state by flashing
    rapidly.
    C. Put your Bluetooth compliant audio source into pairing mode. Please consult
    your manufacturer’s user manual on how to do this.
    Pairing your BT100 and source establishes an authorised audio link that can then
    be used again in the future without having to go through this stage again.
    After pairing you can just select the BT100 and play at any time as long as your
    Bluetooth A2DP compatible source (phone/laptop etc.) is within approx. 10m of
    the BT100.
    Normally on your source you will need to select Bluetooth Pairing and then the
    BT100 should appear as ‘Cambridge Audio BT100’ in a list of locally found
    Bluetooth devices.
    Select that item in the list to finish pairing.
    D. On successful pairing, the BT100s LED goes off for a second or two, then triple
    flashes quickly. The LED then goes off and only lights up in the future when you are
    playing audio via Bluetooth.
    E. To play back via a paired Bluetooth device, simply select the BT100 on that
    device and start playing. The BT100 LED lights up constantly when streaming SBC
    or on and flicks off every 2 seconds when streaming apt-X.
    Notes:
    - You can pair to more than one source up to a maximum of 8 sources at any time.
    Pairing to a 9th device will cause the first one to be forgotten and so on. However
    as you would expect the BT100 can only play back from one of these sources at
    a time.
    - When you have finished playback many sources keep the Bluetooth link active for
    a time unless you actively tell them to stop by deselecting playback via the BT100
    (do not unpair as this is not necessary).
    This can prevent another source to be able to access the BT100.
    T o immediately use another source, simply deselect the BT100 for playback on
    your first source device before starting up on a second.
    - Some devices stream empty data all the time even when paused or stopped.
    These devices will cause the BT100s LED to be on even if playback is currently
    stopped or paused.

    Network
    This menu enables you to set your Stream Magic 6’s network settings, scan again
    for a connection to another wireless network, or to manually configure the network
    parameters. This is useful if you move your Stream Magic 6 to a new location for
    instance.
    By default the Stream Magic 6 will be set for Automatic wired/wireless detection
    and automatic IP addressing (DHCP) which will work without setup in most
    circumstances (for Wi-Fi you will need to enter your WEP/WPA key if you have one).
    In Auto mode the Stream Magic 6 will look for a wired connection first and then
    scan for wireless connections if it doesn’t find one. It will also try to obtain an IP
    address automatically from your router/DHCP server.
    If you wish to make changes to your setup the Stream Magic 6 displays the
    following submenus.

    The Stream Magic 6 can display a warning if the Wi-Fi signal strength is low enough
    to be causing reduced throughput.The options for the Signal Warning are simply
    Yes or No.

    Wi-Fi Region

    The Stream Magic 6 can handle keys in WEP, WPA and WPA2 formats (the choice of
    format is made by appropriate settings on your router) and automatically generates
    the right format from your text according to the router request.

    Different parts of the world use slightly different frequencies for Wi-Fi. For best
    performance you should set the Stream Magic 6 to the region you live in, the
    current options are US, Spain, Europe (i.e. other than Spain), Japan.

    Enter the network name

    Wired/Wireless connection

    This option allows the Stream Magic 6 to search for and connect to a particular
    network name only.

    It is possible to connect your Stream Magic 6 to your network via an available
    Ethernet connection (RJ45) or via a Wi-Fi router. By default the unit is in AUTO
    mode, each time you turn the unit it looks for the presence of a wired connection,
    and tries to use this, if none is present or it cannot connect it then tries to use
    the wireless connection and so on. In Auto mode once the Stream Magic 6
    has established a certain type of connection to the network, then this type of
    connection will remain in use while the Stream Magic 6 is on.

    Type your network name in using the alphanumeric entry screen.
    If no matching network is found 'Network not found' will be displayed.

    You can alternatively configure the Stream Magic 6 to permanently only use the
    wired or wireless connection From the Stream Magic 6’s 'Network config' menu,
    select 'Wired/Wireless'. This menu will present you with three options: 'Auto', 'Wired
    Only' and 'Wireless Only'.

    View Config
    This menu firstly displays the IP mode (static or dynamic). This will be Auto/DHCP
    (i.e. dynamic, this is the default) or alternatively Static IP.
    For either mode by turning the Navigation/Select dial the Stream Magic 6 will scroll
    through the various current IP parameters, for instance the ESSID of the current
    wireless network, Wired and Wireless MAC addresses, current IP address, (Sub)
    Netmask, Gateway address etc.

    Edit Config
    This menu allows the selection of IP mode between static or dynamic (Auto/DHCP).
    Auto/DHCP is recommended for most people in most circumstances. Static IP
    requires quite a bit of knowledge about IP networks, and is for advanced users only.
    The default setting is thus Auto/DHCP, here the Stream Magic 6 obtains its IP
    address each time you switch in on by a process called DHCP which means it is
    different each time it is acquired. This process is completely automatic and much
    simpler than implementing Static IP.
    However sometimes it is useful (especially in large networks) to know the exact IP
    address of each device, this can only be done by using static IP.
    When using Static IP you will also need to enter the network mask you wish to
    use and the addresses of your gateway and DNS service, note there is no way for
    Cambridge Audio to know what these are in your network. Only select static IP if you
    know exactly what you are doing!
    To set static IP, select the 'Settings > Network config > Edit Config' menu and then
    press SELECT.
    The Stream Magic 6 will now display 'Auto (DHCP)? YES/NO'. Turn the Stream
    Magic 6’s rotary dial to select 'NO' and then press SELECT.

    Selecting 'Wired Only' will cause the Stream Magic 6 to reboot and then only use
    its Ethernet connection to communicate with the network. Selecting the 'Wireless
    Only' will cause the Stream Magic 6 to reboot and only use its Wi-Fi connection.
    Selecting the 'Auto' option means the Stream Magic 6 will try both and settle on the
    one it can make work as described above.

    Firmware
    This menu item displays some hardware/software version numbers for your
    Stream Magic 6. Turn the rotary dial to scroll through the various items.
    The Service Pack is the currently loaded firmware software. It’s a good idea to
    note this down if you need to contact our technical support people as they may
    request it.
    The Serial Number and Product Code are not normally required by the technical
    support team.
    Note: This Serial Number is not the same as the physical serial number on the back
    of the product itself.

    Firmware
    Version
    Upgrade
    Version

    You will now be able to enter the fixed IP address you wish to give your Stream
    Magic 6 by using the rotary dial to select the desired numbers followed by pressing
    Navigation/Select dial to end inputting the address.

    This menu item displays some hardware/software version numbers for your
    Stream Magic 6. Turn the rotary dial to scroll through the various items.

    The Stream Magic 6 will now prompt you to enter the required network mask for
    the network. You will be able to enter this in the same way as before for entering
    the IP address.

    The Service Pack is the currently loaded firmware software. It’s a good idea to
    note this down if you need to contact our technical support people as they may
    request it.

    You will now need to enter the default gateway’s IP address used by the Stream
    Magic 6 on the network.
    Finally, you will need to enter the DNS IP address for the Stream Magic 6. On some
    networks, you may need to enter your ISP’s DNS IP address, which should be
    available on your ISP’s support page on their website.
    After entering the above information, the Stream Magic 6 will now try to connect
    to your network. If you wish to use DHCP again simply select 'Settings > Network
    config > Edit Config' and then set 'Auto (DHCP)? YES/NO' to 'YES'.

    WiFi Strength
    Displays the strength of the received WiFi Signal.
    Note: If WiFi has been turned off (Ethernet mode only) the signal strength will show
    as 0%.

    Balance control

    Use this option to download new firmware for the Stream Magic 6 from Cambridge
    Audio over the Internet.

    Balance control allows the sound to be panned slightly to the left or the right and
    is sometimes used to compensate for channel imbalance found with recordings
    transferred from vinyl records etc. or to compensate for offset loudspeaker
    positions relative to the listener.

    If you select this item the Stream Magic 6 will contact our server and see if a
    newer version of software is available (‘Checking for updates’ will be shown in the
    display).
    If new software is found the Stream Magic 6 will prompt you and ask if you want
    to download it or not. It is a good idea to update the firmware from time to time to
    take advantage of any bug fixes or new features. At this stage, you can press the
    Stream Magic 6’s
    button to cancel the firmware upgrade. A Firmware upgrade
    may take several minutes.
    Note:
    – It is very important that once the Firmware upgrade has started you do not
    switch off the power to the Stream Magic 6 until the operation is complete
    otherwise the Stream Magic 6 may become permanently damaged.
    – Also do not interrupt the network or internet connection by removing the
    Ethernet lead or switching off your router etc.

    Stream Magic 6 Name
    This menu allows the setting of the declared UPnP Client name for your Stream
    Magic 6.
    This is the name other UPnP devices (such as control points and remote Apps etc.)
    will display when they see the Stream Magic 6.
    The default name will be ‘Stream Magic 6’ but can be changed to any name you
    can easily recall such as ‘Dads Stream Magic 6’ or ‘Kitchen’ etc.

    Advanced
    This menu contains advanced setup/configuration as shown below.

    Advanced
    Digital Pre-amp Mode
    Balance (only available if Digital Pre-amp mode is enabled)
    USB Audio Class
    Remote Code
    Language
    Idle Mode
    Automatic Power-down
    Edit Digital Input Names
    Digital Pre-Amp Mode

    Balance is only available if Digital Pre-Amp mode (described above) is enabled.
    The function can be found in the menu under: to “Settings -> Advanced -> Balance”
    (only when Digital Pre-Amp is enabled)
    The last used balance setting is memorised when the unit powered off.

    USB Audio Class
    USB Class options enable Stream Magic 6 compatibility with both USB Audio 1.0
    and USB Audio 2.0 interface formats. The default setting is USB Audio 1.0 which
    will work driverlessly with most operating systems for 16-24 bit content at 3296kHz. Note USB Audio 2.0 requires a driver to be loaded for Windows. Without
    this selecting USB Audio 2.0 will normally give no output. See earlier section on
    USB Audio for advanced users.

    Remote Code
    There are two Options:
    Option 1 – is the default and works with the Stream Magic 6 remote control when
    also in its default mode.
    Option 2 – gives a secondary code set in cases where the remote codes are found
    to clash with another remote handset.
    If Option 2 is selected on the Stream Magic 6 then the remote handset must also
    be set to Option 2 remote codes as well as follows:
    Press and hold down the
    Option 2.

    button whilst inserting the batteries to switch to

    By inserting the batteries without the

    button held down will default to Option1.

    Language
    Allows you to change the display language used.
    A list of the currently supported languages will be shown. Select your preferred one
    and press enter.
    Note: The Stream Magic 6 will then restart in order to start again in the new
    language, this will take approximately 30 seconds.

    Idle Mode
    Idle mode, when enabled, allows Stream Magic 6 to enter a lower power
    suspended state using the Standby/On button. The display is turned off and many
    of the internal processes and circuits are disabled to reduce power consumption.
    However the difference between Idle and Standby is that in Idle mode, power
    remains connected to the main controller, Ethernet and Wi-Fi sections.
    In Idle mode, networking functionality remains alive in the background. This means
    that Stream Magic 6 can be quickly woken up out of the suspended state into
    an operational state using not only the front panel, the infra-red remote and the
    control bus, but also the iOS app running on the iPhone or iPad. This is not possible
    when the unit is in full Standby mode.
    To enable Idle mode using the Standby/On button, it must first be activated within
    the setup menus. Go to “Settings -> Advanced -> Idle Mode” and set to “On”.

    Digital Pre-amp mode, when enabled, allows volume adjustment to be performed
    within the up-sampling Digital Signal Processor (DSP) before being converted to an
    analogue audio signal for connection to a power amp.

    Short presses of the Standby/On button then toggle between On and Idle modes.

    Normally, the output of Stream Magic 6 (and most other source components) is
    output at “full-scale” (i.e. maximum volume). This signal is then fed into a pre-amp
    which is used to control the volume of all audio sources connected to it.

    Full low power standby can still be activated by keeping the Standby/On button
    pressed for more than two seconds. A subsequent press of Standby/On turns the
    unit fully on, but remember that this can’t be done over the network (i.e. from the
    iOS app) and that it takes longer to reach the full operational state.

    To enable Digital Pre-Amp mode it must first be activated within the setup menus.
    Go to “Settings -> Advanced -> Digital Pre-amp Mode” and set to “On”. Stream
    Magic 6 will then respond to the vol+ and vol- buttons on the remote control at
    any time.

    Note: after putting the unit into Idle mode, you will not be able to wake the unit into
    full On mode until 5 seconds have elapsed.

    It is also possible to adjust the volume using the rotary controller knob on the front
    of the unit.
    Whenever the StreamMagic 6 is showing its ‘Now playing’ screen turning the rotary
    controller knob will adjust the volume. Pressing back or home etc. to access the
    menu system allows the use of the rotary controller for menu browsing. If you are
    in a menu and need to adjust the volume immediately simply press the ‘i’ button to
    go straight to ‘Now playing’ and then use the rotary controller.
    Maximum volume is shown as “0dB” on the display. Reductions in volume away
    from maximum are shown in the form of negative numbers i.e. “-12dB”. The larger
    the negative number, the larger the signal reduction so the quieter it will be. A
    muted or silent output is shown as “MUTE”. The volume screen is shown briefly
    when the volume is changed, after which it times-out to the previously displayed
    screen.
    The last used volume setting is memorised when the unit powered off.

    Automatic Power Down
    The Stream Magic 6 will switch itself off after 15 minutes if it is not playing anything
    and there has been no user interaction with it during this time. As a default this is
    set to 15 minutes, but you can increase or decrease this time, or turn this feature
    off altogether if desired.

    Search for Stream Magic Remote on the Apple App Store or browse www.streammagic.com for further details on this and other Apps and features as they become
    available.
    The Stream Magic 6 allows the user to control playback volume via the Stream
    Magic mobile application by either:
    • Using the digital pre-amp inside the StreamMagic 6, or
    •U
     sing a Cambridge Audio Azur amplifier or AV Receiver connected to the
    StreamMagic 6 via the Control Bus.

    Digital Pre-amp
    The Auto Power Down setting can be found in Settings > Advanced > Automatic
    Power-down. There, using the rotary dial you can adjust APD from OFF to 1hr, in 5
    minute increments. Press the rotary dial to accept the new APD setting.

    Edit Digital Input Names

    When the digital pre-amp mode is enabled on the StreamMagic 6, the mobile
    application allows direct manipulation of playback volume via a slider located on
    the Now Playing screen.

    Connected Azur Amplifier/AV Receiver
    Users can enable Azur Mode in the Settings screen on the application when using
    the StreamMagic 6 in conjunction with a Cambridge Audio Azur amplifier/AV
    Receiver. Users should then select whether they are using a Cambridge Audio Azur
    amplifier or an AV Receiver. If the Stream Magic 6 and the Amp/AV Receiver are
    connected using the supplied orange Conrol Bus cable as shown below.

    This allows you to customise the names associated with each digital input so that
    they correspond to the actual device names connected to them.
    There are three digital inputs:
    • USB Audio:
    • S/PDIF Coax:
    • Toslink Optical:
    Each input is named as default by its input type. To rename an input, go to “Settings
    -> Advanced -> Edit Digital Input Names”, highlight the desired input and select it
    to rename. The screen changes to a list of letters, with the current name displayed
    at the top. To delete existing letters press the “Stop/Delete” button at the bottom
    left of the display. Navigate through the letters and select each letter in turn to
    rename the input. When finished, select the “Return” symbol at the end of the
    letter list (you can press the “Home” button on the right hand side of the display to
    jump to it). The name is then saved and the display returns to the Edit Digital Input
    Names menu screen.

    Factory Reset
    Puts all the settings back to their defaults as they were when they left the factory.
    The Stream Magic 6 will ask you if you are sure you want to proceed before
    performing a reset.
    Note: If you perform a factory reset, you will lose any saved WEP/WPA keys for your
    wireless network connection.

    Stream Magic Remote

    Stream Magic remote is a free iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad application that allows
    wireless control of the Stream Magic 6 or other Stream Magic powered Cambridge
    Audio products.
    The application allows full control of the Stream Magic 6 including Stream Magic
    Radio, Streaming Services, UPnP Media, Presets, Queuing and more.
    It also supports display of Album artwork and Station logos (where available).
    To use Stream Magic Remote you will need a Wi-Fi network or Access point for the
    application to connect to , the connection from your router to the Stream Magic 6
    can then be either Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

    General Help guidelines:
    If you have trouble connecting the Stream Magic 6 to your network, these steps
    may help to resolve the problem:
    •C
     onfirm that a connected computer can access the Internet (i.e. can browse the
    web) using the same network.
    •C
     heck that a DHCP server is available, or that you have configured a static IP
    address on the Stream Magic 6. You can configure a static IP address on the
    Stream Magic 6 using the menu item ‘Settings -> Network Config -> Edit Config’,
    and then select ‘No’ for ‘Auto (DHCP)’. DHCP is however the recommended
    method.
    •C
     heck that your network’s firewall is not blocking any outgoing ports. As a
    minimum, the radio needs access to UDP and TCP ports 80, 5­54, 1755, 5000,
    6000 and 7070.
    • Check your access point does not restrict connections to a particular MAC
    addresses. You can view the radio’s MAC address using the menu item ‘Settings
    -> Network Config -> View Config -> MAC address’.
    • If you have an encrypted Wi-Fi network, check that you have entered the correct
    key or passphrase into the Stream Magic 6. Remember that text-format keys
    are case sensitive. If, when attempting to connect to an encrypted network,
    your Stream Magic 6 displays: ‘Wireless error’ followed by a 5-digit number,
    then please ensure that you enter the correct passphrase for the network. If
    the problem persists, then you may need to consult your network configuration.
    If your Stream Magic 6 can connect to the network successfully, but is unable to
    play particular Stream Magic stations, it may be due to one of the following causes:
    • The station is not broadcasting at this time of the day (remember it may be
    located in a different time zone).
    • The station has reached the maximum allowed number of simultaneous listeners.
    • The station is not broadcasting anymore.

    Wi-Fi Encryption

    WEP, WPA, WPA2

    • The link in our database is simply out of date.

    Ethernet

    IEEE 802.3, 10 Base-T or 100 Base-T

    USB

    2 x USB 1.1 current limited to 1A each

    • The Internet connection between the server (often located in a different country)
    and you is slow.

    File systems

    FAT32, NTFS

    Mains inlet voltage

    100-240 VAC (switch mode)

    If you can play back the station with a computer, you can use the form at www.
    stream-magic.com to notify us so that we can investigate.

    Standby consumption

    <0.5W

    If you have problems with UPnP playback always check the following:

    Max power consumption 30W
    Dimensions


    85 x 430 x 305mm
    (3.4 x 16.9 x 12.2”)

    Weight 4 Kg(8.8lbs)
    * Steep filter disabled
    * iRadio/Streaming Services are output as 16-bit data at the appropriate sample
    rate for the decompressed data. The sample rate will be 32kHz, 44.1kHz or 48kHz
    depending on the streams sample rate.
    Incoming streams of less than 32kHz sample rate cannot be output over S/P DIF
    /Toslink.
    For compressed streams the true resolution of the audio is of course limited by
    the encoding.
    For Media content from local drives or UPnP this outputs in its native resolution of
    16/24-bit, 32kHz 44.1kHz 48kHz or 96kHz with bit for bit transfer.

    • Try using a computer to play back the stream via the broadcaster’s web site.

    •E
     nsure your chosen UPnP server software is capable of serving the file type you
    are trying to access. Some servers do not serve FLAC for instance.
    • T he Stream Magic 6 can only play non DRM files. Files that have DRM controls
    cannot be played by the Stream Magic 6. Some servers may be able to authorise
    and de-crypt Microsoft Playsforsure before then serving the content to the
    Stream Magic 6 but this operation is not guaranteed as it is purely a function
    of the server.
    • If attempting to play 24-bit WAV or FLAC content note a wired Ethernet connection
    is normally required for reliable operation due to bandwidth considerations.
    •C
     heck the Stream Magic 6 is capable of playing back the file type you are trying
    to access. WMA, AAC, MP3, Vorbis, FLAC and WAV can currently be played. The
    Stream Magic 6 does not support ALAC, WMA Pro, WMA lossless, RAW, AU or
    other file types not mentioned.
    If you have problems with USB Media playback always check the following:
    •C
     heck the Stream Magic 6 is capable of playing back the file type you are trying
    to access. WMA, AAC, MP3, Vorbis, FLAC and WAV can currently be played.
    • The Stream Magic 6 does not support ALAC, WMA Pro, WMA lossless, RAW, AU or
    other file types not mentioned.
    •F
     or USB Media the Stream Magic 6 can only play non DRM files. Files that have
    DRM controls cannot be played.
    • Check that your device does not require more than 1A if it is powered from the
    USB socket itself.
    • Check your device is formatted in FAT32 format.
    • The way you organise your USB media affects the size of internal database the
    Stream Magic 6 needs to build dynamically as you browse content. Good practice
    is to create folders for Artists within which you should have a sub folders for each
    Album which then containing the tracks for that Album. Libraries with thousands
    of tracks in one folder will progressively slow down the Stream Magic 6s media
    browsing.
    For all servicing, in or out of warranty, please contact your dealer.
