Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13- Amp
plug.To change a fuse in this type of plug, proceed as
follows:
1
Remove fuse cover and fuse.
Fix the new fuse which should be a BS1362 52
Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3
Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug should be fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, it should have
a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a fuse is
used, the fuse at the distribution board should
not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed, so as to
avoid a possible shock hazard due to it being
inserted into another 13-Amp socket.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are colored using the following codes: blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).
•
As these colors may not correspond with the
color markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or colored black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or colored red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or colored green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make sure that the
cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the lead and
not simply over the two wires.

Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
• Using headphones at a high volume can impair your hearing.This product can produce
sounds in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for a normal person, even for
exposure less than a minute.The higher decibel ranges are offered for those that may have
already experienced some hearing loss.
• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing ‘comfort level’ adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds ‘normal’ can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing.To guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before your hearing adapts and
leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
• Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally ‘safe’ levels, can also cause hearing loss.
• Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headphones.
• Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable periods of time.
• Be careful not to adjust the volume as your hearing adapts.
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.
• You should use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it may
create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
Important (for models supplied with headphones):
Philips guarantees compliance with the maximum sound power of its audio players as determined
by relevant regulatory bodies only with the original model of provided headphones. In case this one
needs replacement, we recommend that you contact your retailer to order a model identical to
that of the original, provided by Philips.

Connect to wired home network
The wired home network can be a single PC, a PC network, another Center or a Station.
Center can access the wired and wireless home network at the same time. Using the supplied
Ethernet cable, you can connect Center separately to a wired network while maintaining its Wi-Fi
connection (e.g. the Wi-Fi connection between Center and on or more Stations, or the Wi-Fi
connection with a home network). In this way, you can opt to play the music library of the wired
network only on Center or a single Station (UPnP playback).
At the same time, you can still enjoy all the music playback features on the Wi-Fi network.

Question
Is there a maximum
distance of transmission
between Philips Wireless
Music Center and
Station/PC for effective
streaming?
Answer
Yes.The maximum distance of Wi-Fi transmission is 250m measured
in open spaces.
However, in a home environment where solid obstacles such as walls
and doors are present, the effective transmission distance is
significantly reduced to approximately 50-100m.Try to re-position
the set if you experience transmission problems.

Firstly, it reads the CD content and stores it temporarily on the hard

Secondly, it converts this temporary CD content into MP3 format - a
process called 'background-encoding'.
It takes 1 hour to convert 1 hour of CD music.
During the first stage of the conversion you cannot stream or
broadcast music from Center; though you can still stream music
from Stations. Always switch the set to Eco Standby (power-saving
mode) before removing its power plug.
