Step 5: Use the audio cable connect the transmitter/charger to the audio OUTPUT on the audio source. NOTE: Depending on your audio source you may be connecting into a 3.5mm headphone jack, red and white RCA audio outputs or a digital output. 
Step 6: Turn on your audio source.
Step 7: Turn on your transmitter. The LED on the transmitter will illuminate and start blinking.
Step 8: Turn on your headphones. The LED on the transmitter will illuminate and start blinking.
Step 9: Wait 30-60 seconds for the wireless signal between the headphones and transmitter to be established and then you will have audio.

NOTE: The RS 160 & RS 170 & RS 180 models do not include a digital connection. If you need to connect to a digital audio output then you will need a digital to analog decoder like the OREI DA 34.
