Using the CD DIRECT AMP switch
You can enjoy the purest possible CD sound from your CD
player by setting this switch so that the indicator illuminates.
By doing so, CD’s input signals are sent to the built-in special
amplifier for CD directly bypassing the INPUT selector, BASS,
TREBLE, BALANCE and LOUDNESS controls, and then sent
to the power amplifier. This signal routing reproduces the
purest CD sound eliminating any alterations to the CD signals.

The memory back-up circuit prevents the programmed data
from being lost even if this unit is turned into the standby
mode or the power plug is disconnected from the AC outlet or
the power is cut due to temporary power failure. If, however,
the power is cut for more than one week, the memory may be
erased. If so, it can be re-programmed by simply following
the PRESET TUNING steps.
