PRECAUTIONS: READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT
■ This system is equipped with the newly developed Active Servo
Processing Speaker System. It is not designed for use with
conventional speakers. Therefore, do not attempt to connect
other speakers than the provided speaker system.
■ Sudden temperature changes and storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside the
cabinet.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction.
To eliminate condensation:
CD pickup
Leave the power on with no disc in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Tape head
Leave the power on with no cassette in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Note
If condensation forms on the tape head, foreign matter may
accumulate during use.
Remote control
Wipe off condensation on the transmitter window with a soft
cloth before operating the unit.
•
■ Choose the installation location of this unit carefully. Avoid
placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also avoid
locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat, cold or
moisture. Keep it away from sources of hum such as
transformers and electric motors.
•
■ Do not operate this unit upside-down. It may overheat, possibly
causing damage.
•
■ Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the set, contact
your dealer.
■ Always set the VOLUME control to minimum before starting the
audio source: increase the volume gradually to an appropriate
level after play has started.
■ Do not use force on switches, controls or connection wires. When
moving the unit, first disconnect the power plug and the wires
connected to other equipment. Never pull the wire itself.

Proper use of the remote control
transmitter
(See figure 6 on page 9.)
(See figure 7 on page 9.)
1
Remove the battery compartment cover.
(Slide the cover in the direction of the arrow.)
2
Aim (within the range of 60° with no obstacles) the remote
control transmitter at the remote control sensor and operate
as shown.
Insert 2 “AA” size batteries (UM/SUM-3, R6, HP-7 or
equivalent) into the battery compartment.
* Installing the batteries improperly may cause failure.
3
Notes concerning use
• Replace the batteries if control distance decreases or
operation becomes unstable.
• Periodically clean the transmitter window on the remote
control transmitter and the sensor on the main unit with a
soft cloth.
• Exposing the sensor on the main unit to strong light
(especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.) may
interfere with operation. In this case, reposition the main
unit to avoid direct lighting.
• Keep the remote control transmitter away from moisture,
excessive heat, shock and vibrations.
• The remote control transmitter’s usable range is within
0.2m (8”) and 6m (20’) away from the sensor.
Replace the battery compartment cover.
Precautions for battery use
Insert the batteries according to the direction indicated in
the battery compartment.
Replace all batteries with new ones at the same time.
Remove the batteries if they are weak or if the unit is not
in use for long periods.
Don’t mix normal batteries with rechargeable batteries.

REMOVING THE FRONT GRILLE
(See figure 8 on page 9.)
The front grille is fastened to the enclosure at four points, and
can be removed if desired. To remove the grille, first hold the
bottom of the grille and unfasten the lower part of the grille by
pulling it gently, and then hold both sides of the grille and
slowly pull straight away from the speaker. To reattach, line
up the four pegs on the inside surface of the grille with the
four corresponding holes on the speaker and push gently.
Note
When the grille is removed, take care not to touch the
speaker units with your hands or to exert excessive force with
tools.
LISTENING WITH HEADPHONES
(See figure 9 on page 9.)
•
•
Be sure that your headphones have a 3.5 mm (1/8”)
diameter plug and are between 16 ohms and 50 ohms
impedance. Recommended impedance is 32 ohms.
E-6
When headphones are connected, the speakers are
defeated automatically. Adjust the VOLUME control for
desired volume.
Never plug the AC supply lead of this system into the AC outlet until all connections are
completed.

Notes
• When static is still heard even after adjusting the position
of the AM (MW/LW) loop antenna, try reversing the wire
connections (right to left).
• Do not place the AM (MW/LW) loop antenna on the unit. It
will result in noise generation, since the unit is equipped
with digital electronics. Place the AM (MW/LW) loop
antenna away from the unit.

Connecting the AC supply lead
(See figure 0 on page 9.)
(See figure A on page 1 0.)
Connect each speaker wire to the SPEAKERS terminals.
•
•
Cautions
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other as this
could damage the power amplifier and/or speakers.
• When connecting the speakers to the unit, be sure to
connect the speaker wires properly. Do not make a
mistake from the right channel to the left channel and from
the plus (+) terminal to the minus (–) terminal.
• Do not connect these SPEAKERS terminals to speakers
other than the provided speaker system NX-GX50.
After connecting the speakers, plug the AC supply lead
into a convenient AC outlet.
Unplug the AC supply lead from the AC outlet if the unit is
not to be used for a long period of time.
TURNING THE POWER ON/OFF TO THIS SYSTEM
(See figure B on page 1 0.)
STANDBY mode
While the power is on, pressing the POWER switch (or the
POWER switch on the remote control transmitter) switches
the system to the STANDBY mode. (In this mode, the
display shows only the time.) In this mode, main voltage is
still present inside the system. If you want to switch off the
system completely, disconnect the AC power plug from the
AC outlet.
If the AC supply lead is connected to the AC outlet, this
system can be turned ON and OFF (STANDBY mode) by
pressing the POWER switch on the front panel of the main
unit or the POWER switch on the remote control transmitter.
Automatic power-off function
The power of this system will be automatically turned off if
there is no operation on the control parts of this system, no
illumination on the graphic equalizer indicators and no
playback of CD or tape for about 30 minutes.
SETTING THE CLOCK
(See figure C on page 1 0.)
1
While the power is on, press the DISPLAY button to
display the time. If the power is off, you can proceed to the
next step.
2
While holding the TIME ADJ button pressed, press the
HOUR button and set the hour.
* Press the HOUR button once to advance the time by 1
hour. Press and hold to advance continuously.
* To reverse the hour, press the

Europe, U.K., Australia and Singapore models use a 24hour display. U.S.A. and Canada models use a 12-hour
display shown by “AM (PM) 00:00”. For General model,
either the 24-hour display or the 12-hour display is
selected depending on the setting of the FREQUENCY
STEP switch on the rear panel, so you cannot select a
desired type freely.
In the event of a power failure or when the AC supply
lead is disconnected.
The time display will go out, however, the clock will function
for about 5 minutes without power supply. So you do not
have to reset the time if the AC power supply is resumed
within about 5 minutes.
When the AC power supply is resumed after more than 5
minutes pass without power supply, the time display will flash
on and off to indicate that the time must be reset.
While holding the TIME ADJ button pressed, press the
MIN button and set the minute.
* Press the MIN button once to advance the time by 1
minute. Press and hold to advance continuously.
* The hour setting will not advance even if minute is
advanced from “59” to “00”.
* To reverse the minute, press the
button instead of
the MIN button.
E-8
This adjustment can be made even though the power of this
unit is off (in the standby mode).
If desired, you can adjust brightness of the display.

COMPACT DISC PLAYER OPERATION
Care of compact discs
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however
mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the
disc surface.
Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from
your CD collection and player.
• Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the nonlabel side. Signals are read from the non-label side. Do
not mark this surface.
• Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat and
excessive moisture.
• Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt or
water on the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD
is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry
cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the radius.

number of received stations is less than 40, the search will
stop after searching all frequencies.
* Since FM stations are searched for first, there may be a
case that 40 preset stations are occupied by FM
stations only.
• <U.K. and Europe models only>
The unit is originally set so that only RDS stations are
searched instead of all FM stations by this operation. (FM
stations that employ no RDS network service cannot be
programmed.)
However, you can change the setting so that the unit can
program not only RDS stations but also other FM stations.
(Refer to page 23 for details.)
• With this function, only stations with sufficient signal
strength are stored automatically. If the station you want
to program is weak in signal strength, tune to it in

TUNING OPERATION
RECEIVING RDS STATIONS
<U.K. and Europe models only>
RDS (Radio Data System) is a data transmission system
gradually being introduced by FM stations in many countries.
Stations using this system transmit an inaudible stream of
data in addition to the normal radio signal.
RDS data contains various information, such as PI (Program
Identification), PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program
Type), RT (Radio Text), CT (Clock Time), etc.
RDS function is carried out among the network stations.
* This unit utilizes PS, PTY, RT and CT to receive RDS
broadcast stations.
Displaying RDS data
This unit can be turned into the following four modes to
display RDS data.
PS (Program Service name) mode:
Displays the name of the RDS station
now being received instead of the
frequency.
BBC R3
PTY (Program Type) mode:
RT (Radio Text) mode:
Displays information about the program (such as title of the
song, name of the singer, etc.) on the RDS station now being
received.
CT (Clock Time) mode:
Displays current time. This signal comes from the RDS station
now being received. Time of the built-in clock can be
automatically corrected on the basis of this signal.
Displays the type of the program on the RDS station now
being received. There are 15 program types to classify RDS
stations as follows.

Changing the RDS modes
When an RDS station is received, “PS”, “PTY”, “RT” and/or
“CT” that correspond to the RDS data services employed by
the station light up on the display. By pressing the FREQ
PS/PTY/RT/CT selector button once or more, you can
change the display mode among the RDS modes employed
by the received station in the order shown below. (The RDS
mode not employed by the station cannot be selected.)
* If the station is not an RDS station, pressing the FREQ
PS/PTY/RT/CT selector button displays “NO RDS” on the
display, and then it returns to the frequency display mode.
* When an RDS station is received, the display is
automatically turned into the PS mode. Do not press the
FREQ PS/PTY/RT/CT selector button until the display is
turned into the PS mode. If the button is pressed before
the display mode is changed, it may occur that “NO PS”
appears on the display. This is because the unit has not
received all of the RDS data on the station yet.

• There may be a case that RDS data reception is not
possible due to poor reception conditions. If so, press the
AUTO/MAN’L button so that “AUTO” goes off from the
display. Though the reception mode is changed to
monaural by this operation, when you change the display to
an RDS mode, RDS data may be displayed.
• If the signal strength gets weakened by external
interference during receiving an RDS station, the RDS data
service may be cut off suddenly and turn into the frequency
display mode.
Notes
• RDS data service cannot be utilized by this unit if the
received signal is not strong enough. Especially, the RT
(Radio Text mode) needs much data to be received, so it
may occur that RT mode cannot be displayed even if other
RDS modes (PS, PTY, etc.) are displayed.

TAPE DECK OPERATION
General information

•
•
•
•
•
•
Detection hole
•
Tab
Do not use C-120 tapes or poor-quality tapes, since they
can cause malfunctions.
Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,
tighten the tape slack with a pen or pencil.
Tapes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab
on the top left protects the side facing you from erasure.
Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record
again.
This deck is a Double Cassette Deck with Automatic
Reverse Function.
Deck 1: Playback only.
Deck 2: Playback or recording.
This deck features an auto tape selector. Just load the
tape, and the tape formula being used will be sensed
automatically.
This unit can play back metal tapes as well as normal or
chrome tapes, however recording cannot be done on
metal tapes in good sound quality.
When covering erasure prevention tab holes, do not cover
the chrome and metal detection holes. Otherwise, the
deck will treat tape as normal tape.
Do not press the EJECT button during playback or
recording.
Automatic deck selecting function
If you load only one tape into the deck 1 or deck 2 cassette
compartment, it is automatically selected and set ready for a
playback.
Dolby B Type Noise Reduction
Dolby noise reduction is an extremely effective method of
reducing undesirable background hiss on tapes. This unit
incorporates Dolby B type noise reduction system that is the
most popular one and almost of commercially available
music tapes are recorded with the Dolby B NR.
Dolby B NR has a noise reduction effect of about 10 dB in
the high frequency range.
Dolby noise reduction is a 2 part process that acts both on
recording and playback; be sure that the same noise
reduction is used on recording and playback.
Notes
* Tapes encoded with Dolby NR system should be decoded
with the same Dolby NR system. Nevertheless, a Dolby
encoded tape can be played back without decoding (and
vice versa) with no harm to the recorded sound.
* Noise in the source material cannot be reduced with the
Dolby NR system.
About the tape counter
This unit is equipped with a tape counter that is useful for
searching for and locating a desired point on tape. The tape
counter for the tape 1 (or 2) currently selected is shown on
the display.
Pressing the stop
button when the unit is stopped will
reset the tape counter to “0000”.

When recording important selections, be sure to make a
preliminary test to ensure that the desired source material
is being properly recorded with good sound quality.
The automatic recording level control circuit automatically
controls the level of the input signal used for recording.
Adjusting the VOLUME control and using the built-in
sound field processor have no effect on the recorded
sound.
If, however, the built-in graphic equalizer is used, its effect
is recorded along with the source.
* Music with an equalizer effect is suitable for listening to
inside a car etc.
For the tape deck, the deck which can be used for
recording is the deck 2 only. When recording, be sure to
load a tape into the deck 2 cassette compartment.
