    Tried to find how to set a custom equaliser setting. The manual refers to V/v and then apparently fails to tell me what this V/v is!!

    Extr​emely frustratin​g. There are numbers for each of the buttons and then the next page refers to letters of the alphabet.

    It was by chance that I figured out what to do.

    Perha​ps you should have a complete novice test your manuals for user-frien​dliness rather than (probably) the person(s) who wrote it.
