GB
To take full advantage of your new micro-component system, follow these installation instructions before connecting the unit.
Install the system on a flat, stable surface.
Never place this unit on carpeting.
Never place this unit in an outdoor area.
Maintain an open space of approximately 6 inches (15 cm) on the
sides and rear of the system, for ventilation purposes.
Make sure that you have enough room to open the compact disc
compartment easily.

Direct the loudspeakers towards the listening area.
For optimum performance, make sure that both speakers are placed
at an equal distance above the floor.
1
Insert or replace remote control batteries when you:
Purchase the micro-component system
Find that the remote control is no longer operating correctly
When replacing the batteries, use a new set of batteries and
never mix alkaline and manganese batteries.
1
Place your thumb on the position marked
on the battery
compartment cover (rear of the remote control) and push the cover in
the direction of the arrow.
2
Insert two AAA, LR03 or equivalent batteries, taking care to respect
the polarities:

A Hi-Fi stereo video cassette recorder
To connect to the external source, the source must have an
audio output. In addition, you need an RCA connection cable.
1
Set the system to standby mode and disconnect it and the external
source from the main socket.
2
Connect the audio cable to the rear of the micro-component system.
Connect the...

The loudspeaker connector terminals are located on the rear
of the system (red and black tabs).
GB
The AM aerial (for long and medium waves) can be:
Placed on a stable surface
Fixed to the wall (you must first remove the base)
The AM aerial connector terminals are located on the rear of the system and are marked AM .
There are four terminals on the system:
Two for the left speaker (marked L)
Two for the right speaker (marked R)
To avoid noise interference, check that the loudspeaker wires do not run close to the
aerial wires.
Always keep them at least 2 inches (5 cm) away.
To achieve the correct sound quality, connect the:
Red wire to the + terminals
Black wire to the - terminals
(Right Speaker)
(Left Speaker)
Red jack .............................................. R (right)
White jack .............................................L (left)
For optimum sound quality, do not invert the right and left

How to connect a COAXIAL TYPE aerial.
6
Connect a 75Ω antenna to the FM antenna terminal.
Plug the connector on the FM aerial supplied into the coaxial socket (75Ω) marked FM on the rear of the system.
Follow the instructions given on Page 12 to tune into a radio station, and determine the best position for the aerial.
If reception is poor, you may need to install an outdoor aerial.
To do so, connect an outdoor FM aerial to the FM socket on the rear of the system using a 75Ω coaxial cable (not supplied).
Directions in Installing Speaker
Installation in a place near heating apparatus, under direct lay of
light or with high humidity may cause performance degradation of
the speaker.
Do not install on the wall or on a high place of pole or other unstable place to prevent any safety accident caused by falling of the
speaker.
Do not take the speaker apart from TV or computer monitor.
The speaker near the TV or computer monitor may influence the
quality of the screen display.

Precautions When Using Audio
Cassettes
Check that the tape in the cassette is sufficiently taut.
To prevent erasing a cassette that you wish to keep, remove the
safety tab on the upper edge of the cassette. To record a cassette,
where the tab has been broken, simply cover the opening with
adhesive tape.
When you have finished playing a cassette, always put it back in its
case.
Store your cassettes in a clean place, out of direct sunlight, where
they will not be exposed to high temperatures.
Avoid using 120-minute cassettes as they place unnecessary strain
on the tape mechanism.
