3 Your product
3.1 Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Marmitek Surround Anywhere 221!
It allows you to easily connect your rear surround speakers wirelessly to your
surround set. The built-in amplifier in the receiver allows you to simply use
your existing (passive) surround speakers. The uncompressed digital transfer
creates a sound that surpasses CD quality, without any interference or delay.
Since your surround is used to control the sound, everything is taken care of
after installation.
Marmitek products are manufactured with the utmost precision and are of
high quality.
Surround Anywhere 221:
x Digital Wireless Surround Sender
x Make your existing rear surround-speakers wireless
x Connect your surround set's existing rear speakers wirelessly; no loose
cables trailing through your living room.
x The uncompressed digital link provides better than CD-quality sound,
without interference or delay.
x Improved 2.4GHz technology prevents interference with your existing
Wi-Fi equipment, allowing them to work perfectly side-by-side in the
same area.
x Transmitter and receiver are paired (secure pairing), enabling you to use
multiple sets in the same area (6 max).
x The receiver’s built-in amplifier provides plenty of power for your rear
speakers.
x Because of the direct connection to your surround set’s speaker output,
the speaker volume will automatically correspond to the surround set’s
volume.
x Volume control on the receiver ensures the right balance between front
and rear speakers.

5.1 Precautions
The Surround Anywhere 221 is a wireless speaker system with a 2 x 25 Watt
RMS D-type amplifier. It allows you to wirelessly connect your surround set's
rear speakers.
An amplifier's speaker output is potentially high enough to cause damage.
Please ensure that the output cannot short circuit.
Please ensure that your surround set is switched off before you start the
installation. This is to prevent unwanted sounds or even short-circuiting a
speaker output.

disc with 5.1 channel sound at low volume. Please ensure that the volume
button on the Surround Anywhere receiver (RX) is approximately in the

6 Use
The Surround Anywhere 221 has no auto standby mode. If the set is left idle
for an extended period, switch it off like this: always first switch off the
receiver, followed by the transmitter (if necessary). This is to avoid a pop
coming from the speakers. If you want to switch the set back on, always first
switch on the transmitter and then the receiver.
