Use the AC adaptor designed specifically for the YST-M8 only. Yamaha
cannot be held responsible for damage caused by using other power supply
adaptors.
When disconnecting the AC adaptor from an AC receptacle, hold and pull the
adaptor, not the power cord.
If the YST-M8 are not going to be used for a while, disconnect the AC adaptor
from the AC receptacle.
Always disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC receptacle before making any
connections.
YST-M8 do not contain any user serviceable parts. Refer all servicing to your
Yamaha dealer.
Do not expose the YST-M8 to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, excessive
dust, humidity, or vibration.
Place the YST-M8 on a level, stable surface. Do not drop the YST-M8, apply
excessive force to their controls, or put heavy items on top of them.
If the YST-M8 should require cleaning, use a soft cloth. If necessary, use a
damp cloth.
To protect the YST-M8 speakers, avoid microphone feedback, continuous and
excessive output from electronic musical instruments amplifiers signal
distortion.
If the YST-M8 are located close to fluorescent or neon type lights, a slight
hum may be heard. In this case, relocate the YST-M8 away from the light.
Although the YST-M8 speakers are magnetically shielded, keep floppy disks
and tapes away from them.
The YST-M8 may cause picture distortion when placed close to a television or
computer monitor. In this case, move them away a little.
This unit is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as
it is connected to the wall outlet, even if this unit itself is turned off.
This state is called the standby mode.
In this state, this unit is designed to consume a very small quantity
of power.
