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.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 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 fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this 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.

How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with the following code: blue = neutral
(N), brown = live (L).
As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured black.
• Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or coloured red.
• Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip is clamped over
the sheath of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

General Information
Safety Information
• The type plate (which contains the serial number)
is located at the rear of the system.
• Recording is permissible if copyright or other
rights of third parties are not infringed.
• This product complies with the radio interference
requirements of the European Community.
• Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage indicated on the typeplate (or the voltage
indication beside the voltage selector) of your system is
identical with the voltage of your local power supply. If
not, please consult your dealer. The type plate is located
at the rear of your system.
• When the system is switched on, do not move it around.
• Place the system on a solid base (e.g. a cabinet).
• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation
to prevent internal heat build-up in your system.
• Do not expose the system to excessive moisture, rain,
sand or heat sources.
• Under no circumstances should you repair the system
yourself, as this will invalidate the warranty!
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may
condense on the lens of the CD unit inside the system.
Should this occur, the CD player will not operate
normally. Leave the power on for about one hour with no
disc in the system until normal playback is possible.
• Electrostatic discharge may cause unexpected problems.
See whether these problems disappear if you unplug the
AC power cord and plug it in again after a few seconds.
• To disconnect the system from the power supply
completely, remove the AC power plug from the
wall socket.
