Frequently asked questions

The SLIM 3 has a USB/SD play feature. Which USB sticks and SD cards are compatible?
The SLIM 3 supports usb sticks and SD and SDHC cards with storage capacities that range from 16Mb to 32Gb. (SDXC cards are not supported). A USB stick or SD card must use the FAT16 or FAT32 file system in order to work with the SLIM 3. MP3 or WMA files can be played, even if stored in various folders.

The SLIM 3 is skipping some of my MP3- or WMA-files, what am I doing wrong? 
The SLIM 3 only supports MP3- and WMA files, all other formats are not supported. MP3-files are supported from 16kbps to a maximum of 320kbps. WMA-files are supported from 16kbps to a maximum of 192kbps.

In some cased the MP3- of WMA-files are not played (correctly) played on your radio, even though a computer or laptop plays them well. This can be caused by a wrong encoding (during creation MP3- or WMA-files from CD) or by extra information (ID3 Tags) that are store in the file. If a failure on playback occurs, this is not because of a defective radio.

In this cases, try to re-encode the files from the original source, or contact the supplier of the failing MP3- or WMA-files.

There are actual MP3 and WMA files on my USB stick or SD or SDHC card, but the SLIM 3 says "NO FILE". What's wrong here?
To read the MP3 en WMA files, the USB sticks or SD or SDHC cards must be formatted according to the following layout:

Capacity of 16Mb to 32Mb -> FAT12
Capacity of 32Mb to 2Gb -> FAT16
Capacity of 2Gb to 32Gb -> FAT32 

USB sticks are much more common and used more frequently than SC cards for music, why is the radio fitted with an SD card port?  
The advantage of using an SD card compared with a USB stick is that the SD card is fully inserted into the radio’s housing and can then be protected by the rubber cover and kept free of dust and moisture. Unlike the USB stick, which always protrudes from the housing and is therefore more liable to be damaged. 

The SLIM 3 is rechargeable. How long does it play on a full charge?
The length of time a rechargeable radio plays for on a full charge can never be given precisely as it depends on a number of factors, including the type of music played (e.g. music with more bass requires more power), the volume selected (the higher the volume, the more power used), the ambient temperature (a battery produces less power in low temperatures), the age of the rechargeable batteries, the use of the SD or USB port, etc.

The SLIM 3 plays for up to approximately 1 working day on a full charge (at an average volume level, at room temperature – depending on radio reception and music type).

How far away can you be without being disconnected from Bluetooth?
An average of 10 metres or more in open spaces. But this greatly depends on the type of mobile phone (the strength of the Bluetooth signal emitted by this telephone) and the presence of any intervening walls and doors. If you become disconnected from Bluetooth when leaving for a moment, as soon as you return within range connection will be restored automatically.

How do I connect my mobile phone to the SLIM 3 radio when doing so for the first time?
Simply via your mobile phone’s Bluetooth menu. Select "PP SLIM 3” in your mobile phone’s Bluetooth menu. No PIN codes or similar are required

Can someone else connect to my radio via Bluetooth with their mobile phone at the same time?
No. Once it is connected the radio only recognizes your mobile phone. Only if you purposefully disconnect in the radio’s Bluetooth menu can another mobile phone be connected to it.

Can I also play internet radio or Spotify via the DigiTube radio?
Yes, this is possible, no problem.

If I use my rechargeable drill near the radio the latter fades away. When I stop the sound returns. How come?  
If machines (e.g. drills, saw benches, forklift trucks, etc.) or battery chargers are operated next to or near a jobsite radio, the electromagnetic field they generate can interfere with reception by the jobsite radio. In the case of DAB+ reception, strong electric currents in the immediate vicinity can even cause the radio signal to fade completely.

Sometimes if I move my DAB+ radio even just 50 cm indoors I have better reception.
With DAB+ signal reception, moving the radio a short distance, even just a few dozen centimetres, can make a huge difference to the signal level. This is typical of DAB+ radio reception.
