CONNECTING SPEAKERS
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with wire
of the proper gauge, cut as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is
correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires
are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass.
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other and do
not let them touch the metal parts of this unit as this could
damage this unit and/or speakers.
Notes
One or two speaker systems can be connected to this unit.
If you connect only one speaker system, connect it to either
the SPEAKERS A or B terminals.
● Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the
rear of this unit.
● <U.S.A., Canada, Australia and General models only>
Banana Plug connections are also possible. Simply insert
the Banana Plug connector into the corresponding terminal.
●
How to Connect:
Red: positive (+)
Black: negative (–)

Use these to connect the power cords from your components
to this unit.
The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this unit’s
POWER switch or the provided remote control transmitter’s
POWER key. These outlets will supply power to any
component whenever this unit is turned on.
The maximum power (total power consumption of
components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC
OUTLETS is 100 watts.
Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to the GND
terminal will normally minimize hum, but in some cases better
results may be obtained with the ground wire disconnected.

● You can replace a preset station by another FM or AM
station manually by simply following the procedure of the
section “To store stations” on page 18.
● If the number of received stations is not enough to be stored
up to E8, the search will be finished automatically when it
reaches the highest frequency after searching through all
frequencies.
● With this function, only FM stations with sufficient signal
strength are stored automatically. If the station you want to
program is weak in signal strength, tune to it in monaural
manually and program it by following the procedure of the
section “To store stations” on page 18.
If you want to store the first station received by the
automatic preset tuning to a desired preset station

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 will
not be 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.
