Audio is distorted at times when loud sounds are transmitted and/or "SSS" sounds are
In some versions of the ORION-5000 the Auto Gain Controller threshold is set higher. You will
need to decrease the volume level of the source audio.
Transmit range is lower than the maximum range stated in the specifications:
The transmit range will vary as per your environment, antenna type, frequency setting, FM
receiver sensitivity, etc.
Placing the transmitter (or antenna) on the highest altitude inside or outside of a building with the
least amount of obstacles will give you the optimum range. The telescoping antenna option will
optimize the transmit range of your unit.
Transmitted audio seems to have noticeable static noise.
This is most likely caused by the audio device connected to the ORION-5000 or a near-by device.
If you are using the ORION-5000 with a notebook computer consider using an external USB
Test the ORION-5000 with a different audio source device and/or within another
building/home to help isolate the problem device.
Make sure the audio level of the source device is set to at least 50%; the ORION-5000 can
automatically adjust the volume level down to the appropriate level; but it cannot adjust
The FM receiver only has static on the frequency set on the transmitter.
Make sure the audio input cable in not connected to the microphone input jack.
Makes sure the ORION-5000 is powered ON (GREEN LIGHT on the back of the unit).
Power OFF the ORION-5000 transmitter for 30 minutes. Power ON again and test.
If problem persists contact
Transmitter will not allow transmitting of audio from line-input jack and microphone at the
ORION-5000 can only transmit properly from either the line-in audio input jack OR from a
microphone input NOT both at the same time.
If you wish to transmit from audio source and microphone source at the same time you will
need to use a audio mixer(sold separately).
