How long does the PT01 Touring's battery last?
The PT01 Touring has a built-in lithium ion battery which should last about 4 hours after a full charge.
How do I charge the PT01 Touring's battery?
the PT01 Touring includes a USB cable which can be used to charge the battery. Connect the USB cable to a computer or a USB wall adapter (not included) to provide power to the PT01 Touring and charge the battery.
NOTE: While the PT01 Touring does not include a USB wall adapter, chances are you already own one. These are often included with mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, and other personal electronic devices.
I have the PT01 Touring plugged into my stereo but it sounds distorted. Is there a way to improve the output?
The RCA outputs on the back of the PT01 Touring are LINE outputs and should only be plugged into LINE level inputs. On your stereo, these might be labeled as AUX, CD, or TAPE inputs. Do not plug the RCA ouputs into PHONO inputs. the PT01 Touring has a built-in preamp that will be too loud for PHONO inputs and will sound distorted or may cause damage.
Why doesn't the light on the front of the PT01 Touring doesn't come on while I'm using it?
The charge light will only come on when the PT01 Touring is plugged into USB and charging. As soon as the battery is full or the PT01 Touring is unplugged, the charge light will go out.
Can I close the PT01 Touring while I'm playing an LP?
The PT01 Touring needs to remain any time there is a record on the platter.
My records are hitting the bottom of the cover during playback. Is my PT01 Touring defective? Should my platter be higher?
Always use the included slipmat. The PT01 Touring includes an 8" felt slipmat that should always be placed between the platter and your records. Without the slipmat, your records may sit too low and hit the bottom of the cover.
What can I do if I lose or misplace my slipmat?
You can replace the slipmat with any 7-8" felt slipmat. You can also order a replacement directly from Numark by contacting support.
