I found the local switch is on .but still no sound..i dont have any speakers but i do have a pair of headphones i can plug into.but shouldnt i be able 2 hear sounds reguarless

OK: If it is right out of the box it should play without really changing anything. This unit does not have it's own speaker or amplifier. The only way you will be able to hear it is through headphones or another amplifier and speaker. So try headphones?
