Talk radio broadcasts can be greatly affected by either the
microphone selection or the boosting of low frequencies
by some radio stations. They do so in an attempt to
improve speech when heard through conventional radios.
In high-quality audio products, this results in sound that is
unnatural or bass heavy. By selecting the TALK RADIO
mode, your Wave



III automatically adjusts to

compensate for artificially boosted low frequencies.

When the radio is playing, press Play Mode
twice to turn the TALK RADIO mode on or off.

When on, TALK RADIO– ON is displayed. When off,
TALK RADIO– OFF is displayed.

Note: The TALK RADIO setting is automatically cancelled
when you tune to another station, switch to another
source, or turn your Wave



III off.
