… … … .For Your iPod®
Thank you for purchasing this iPod® Compatible Portable Stereo System
from Emerson Research. This compact portable system features a built in
iPod® docking station so you can play your iPod® through the speakers of
this system when you are in the mood to share your music with others, or
when you simply do not want to use earphones. In addition, when this
system is connected to an AC outlet with the included AC adapter it will
also recharge the battery of any ‘dockable’iPod® . We have even included
two separate inserts so that every ‘dockable’iPod® currently available (as
of January 2006) will fit correctly in the docking area.
This system also includes an AM/FM Stereo Radio with digital station
frequency display for more precise tuning, and a digital alarm clock that
can wake you to the radio or an electronic buzzer.
Finally we have also included an auxiliary input jack so that you can also
connect non-dockable iPod® such as the first generation models, or the
iPod® Shuffle, or even other brands of MP3 players and portable CD players
to this system. The required connection cable is included of course.
We have taken great care to ensure this system was in perfect working
order when it left our factory.
If you experience any problems with the set up or operation of this system
please do not return it to the retail store. Call the Emerson customer service
hotline, toll free, at 1-800-898-9020 Monday through Friday, between the
hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Central Time.
Again, thank you for purchasing this iPod® compatible portable stereo
system from Emerson Research.
iPod® is a trademark of Apple Computer Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

P R E PAR AT I O N F O R U S E
Unpacking And Set Up
• Remove the main unit, the AC adapter, the accessory auxiliary device
connection cord, and the 2 iPod® adapters from the carton, and remove all
packing material from the main unit. We recommend that you save the carton
and packing material in the event that the unit ever needs to be returned for
service. Using the original carton and packing material is the only way to protect
your unit from damage during shipment.
• Remove any descriptive labels or stickers from the top or front panels of the
unit but do not remove any labels or stickers from the back or bottom panels.
• Remove the “dummy iPod® ” display card from the docking area and discard it.
Power Sources
This system is designed to operate on 6 “C” batteries, not included, or on normal
120V AC house current with the included AC adapter. In addition, this unit requires
2 “AA” batteries for the clock and alarm memory back up. We recommend that
you use a well-known brand of alkaline batteries for longest life and best
performance.
Attempting to operate this system from any other power source may cause damage
to the system, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Battery Precautions
• Replacement of batteries must be done by an adult.
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium)
batteries.
• The supply terminals are not to be short-circuited.
• Non-rechargeable batteries are not to be recharged.
• Exhausted batteries are to be removed.
• Only batteries of the equivalent type are to be used.
• Batteries are to be inserted with the correct polarity.
• Dispose of batteries properly. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. The batteries
may explode or leak.

iP100_062806.p65
28/6/2006, 9:43
Battery Installation
The battery compartments for the 6 “C” batteries and 2 “AA” batteries are located
on the back panel. To open the battery compartment covers press the door locking
tabs in the direction of the arrows. Remove the doors and insert the 6 “C” and 2
“AA” batteries in their respective compartments. Be sure the batteries are installed
correctly according to the polarity markings in the battery compartments. If the
OPEN
OPEN
OPEN
batteries are installed incorrectly the unit will not work.
After installing the batteries replace both battery compartment covers and make
sure that they lock securely.
Battery Replacement
When the sound output becomes weak and distorted during battery operation it is
probably time to change the 6 “C” batteries. Try operating the system with the AC
adapter. If the sound is normal with the AC adapter this confirms that the batteries
are weak and should be replaced as soon as possible. If exhausted batteries are
left in the unit they may eventually leak and cause damage to the unit. When
changing the 6 “C” batteries always change all 6 at the same time and do not mix
different types of batteries such as alkaline, carbon-zinc, and nickel cadmium.
The 2 “AA” batteries are only used for maintaining the clock and timer memory
and therefore they will probably last longer than the 6 “C” batteries. Two fresh
alkaline “AA” batteries should provide back up power for the clock and timer for a
period of 12 months.

iP100_062806.p65
28/6/2006, 9:43
Using The AC Adapter
Connect the small female plug of the AC adapter to the DC Input Jack on the back
panel. Connect the housing of the AC adapter to your 120V AC outlet.
When the adapter is connected to the unit the AC power source is selected
automatically, even if there are batteries in the battery compartment. Note: In
order to operate the unit on batteries the AC adapter must be completely
disconnected from the DC Input Jack on the back panel.
NOTES:
• The housing of the AC adapter may become warm during operation. This
is normal.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock never connect or disconnect the AC
adapter while your hands are wet.
Protect Your Furniture
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.
