20 cm behind, 20 cm on the both sides and 30 cm above
the top panel of the unit. Otherwise it may not only damage
the unit, but also cause fire.
6. Always set the VOLUME control to “– ∞” before starting
the audio source play. Increase the volume gradually to an
appropriate level after playback has been started.
7. Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents;
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
8. Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section
regarding common operating errors before concluding that
the unit is faulty.
9. When not planning to use this unit for long periods of time
(ie., vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the
wall outlet.
10. To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power
plug and antenna cable when there is an electrical storm.
11. Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be taken
so that the grounding or polarization of an appliance is not
defeated.
12. Do not connect audio equipment to the AC outlet on the
rear panel if the equipment requires more power than the
outlet is rated to provide.
13. Voltage Selector (General Model only)
The voltage selector on the rear panel of this unit must
be set for your local main voltage BEFORE plugging

Battery replacement
If you find that the remote control transmitter must be used
closer to the main unit, the batteries are weak. Replace both
batteries with new ones.
Notes
● Use only AA, R6, UM-3 batteries for replacement.
● Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration inside
the battery compartment.)
● Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter is not
used for an extended period of time.
● If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid
touching the leaked material or letting it come in contact with
clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly
before installing new batteries.
Notes
● There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control transmitter and the main unit.
● If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong
lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.),
it might cause the remote control transmitter not to work
correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid direct
lighting.

English
In areas where RDS broadcasts cannot be received, the RDS broadcast functions do not operate. (Skip the procedures from page
21 to 25.)
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), EON (Enhanced Other Networks), etc.
RDS function is carried out among the network stations.
* This unit utilizes PI, PS, PTY, RT, CT and EON to receive RDS broadcast stations.

Displays current time. This signal comes from the RDS station
now being received.
PTY (Program Type) mode:
EON (Enhanced Other Networks)
mode:
Displays the type of the program on the RDS station now being
received. There are 15 program types to classify RDS
stations. Refer to the next page for details.
RT (Radio Text) mode:
Automatically receives a program of the designated program
type when its broadcast starts, in place of the program now
being received. When the broadcast of the called program
ends, the previously received program (or another program on
the same station) is recalled.
Displays information about the program (such as title of the
song, name of the singer, etc.) on the RDS station now being
received.

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 RDS MODE/FREQ 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.) Illumination of the indicator on the head of the name of an RDS mode shows that the corresponding RDS mode is now
selected.
* When an RDS station is received, do not press the RDS MODE/FREQ button until one or more names of RDS modes light up on
the display. If the button is pressed before one or more names light up on the display, the mode cannot be changed. This is
because the unit has not received all of the RDS data on the station yet.
* If no name of RDS mode lights up on the display, the mode cannot be changed.
PS mode
The name of the station being received is displayed.
If the station does not employ the PS data service, this mode
will not be selected.
PTY mode
The type of the program on the station being received is
displayed. If the station does not employ the PTY data
service, this mode will not be selected.
(You can make this unit search for a station which is
broadcasting a program of your desired program type. For
details, refer to the next page.)
RT mode
Information about the program on the station being received
is displayed. Information is displayed by a maximum of 64
Roman Alphabets including umlaut sign. If other characters
are used on the RT data, they are displayed with under-bars.
If the station does not employ the RT data service, this mode
will not be selected.
CT mode
Current time is displayed in the following form. The CT data
from the station being received changes every minute.
RDS MODE/FREQ
Hour
Minute
If the reception of data is accidentally cut off, “CT WAIT” may
light up. If the station does not employ the CT data service,
this mode will not be selected.
Frequency
display mode
The frequency of the station being received is displayed.
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.
• There may be a case that RDS data reception is not possible due to poor reception conditions. If so, press the TUNING MODE

Making this unit call a program of your desired program type automatically
when its broadcast starts
This function uses the EON (Enhanced Other Networks) data service on the RDS station network.
Only by selecting a desired program type (NEWS, INFO, AFFAIRS or SPORT), this unit automatically searches all preset RDS
stations for a station that broadcasts a program of that program type in the background, and, if found, receives a program when its
broadcast starts in place of the program now being received.
* This function can be used only when an RDS station that employs the EON data service is received. (When such a station is
received, the “EON” indicator lights up on the display.)
