UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION
Congratulations on your purchase!
Your new high fidelity Tuner is designed to deliver maximum enjoyment and years of trouble free service.
Please take a few moments to read this manual thoroughly. It will explain the features and operation of your unit
and help ensure a trouble free installation.
Please unpack your unit carefully. We recommend that you save the carton and packing material. They will be
helpful if you ever need to move your unit and may be required if you ever need to return it for service. Your
unit is designed to be placed in a horizontal position and it is important to allow at least two inches of space
behind your unit for adequate ventilation and cabling convenience.
To avoid early damage, never place the unit near radiators, in front of heating vents, in direct sunlight or in
excessively humid or dusty location. Connect your complementary components as illustrated in the following
section.
FOR U.S.A.
Note to CATV System Installer: This reminder is
provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to
Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

FCC INFORMATION
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more
of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician
for help.
This symbol is intended to alert the
user to the presence of uninsulated
"dangerous voltage" within the
product's enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a
risk of electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to alert the
user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing)
instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
CAUTION: Any changes or modifications in construction of
this device which are not expressly approved by the party

FOR OTHER COUNTRIES
FOR YOUR SAFETY
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to the U.S.A. and Canada are
designed for operation on 120 V AC only.
Units shipped to countries other than the above
countries are equipped with an AC voltage selector
switch on the rear panel. Refer to the following
paragraph for the proper setting of this switch.
Safety precaution with use of a polarized AC plug.
However, some products may be supplied with a
nonpolarized plug.
AC VOLTAGE SELECTION
This unit operates on 110 - 220 V AC. The AC
voltage selector switch on the rear panel is set to
the voltage that prevails in the area to which the
unit is shipped.
Before connecting the power cord to your AC outlet,
make sure that the setting position of this switch
matches your line voltage. If not, it must be set to
your voltage in accordance with the following
direction.
CAUTION : To prevent electric shock, match wide
blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert.
ATTENTION : Pour eviter les choc electriques,
introduire la lame la plug large de la borne
correspondante de la prise et poussre jusqu’au
fond.
FOR EUROPE AND AUSTRALIA
110 V/ 220 V
230 V/240 V
AC voltage selector switch
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to Australia are designed for
operation on 240 V AC only.
To ensure safe operation, the three-pin plug
supplied must be inserted only into a standard
three-pin power point which is effectively earthed
through the normal household wiring. Extension
cords used with the equipment must be three-core
and be correctly wired to provide connection to
earth. Improper extension cords are a major cause
of fatalities.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily
does not imply that the power point is earthed and
that the installation is completely safe. For your
safety, if in any doubt about the effective earthing
of the power point, consult a qualified electrician.
PAN-EUROPEAN UNIFIED VOLTAGE
All units are suitable for use on supplies 230 - 240 V
AC.
AC 110 V
AC 220 V
Move switch lever to match your line voltage
with a small screwdriver or other pointed tool.
