Your Companion 3 system control pod puts functionality right at your fingertips. It's also a convenient portal allowing auxiliary audio devices (an iPod® or MP3 player, for instance) to play through your Companion 3 speakers. And it includes a headphone jack for private listening.
Control pod functions:
The black outer ring controls volume for any computer or external audio source playing through your Companion 3 speakers. Rotate it clockwise for more volume, or counterclockwise for less
Touch the top center of the control pod once to mute your system. The LED indicator will glow yellow. Touch it again to unmute. The LED indicator will glow green
The Companion 3 system automatically goes into muted mode (yellow indicator) whenever you connect headphones to the control pod
To listen to an external audio device, such as an iPod or MP3 player, plug into the the 1/8" (3.5mm) sound source jack on the control pod
