SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS – Read before operating equipment
English
This product was designed and manufactured to meet strict quality and safety standards.
There are, however, some installation and operation precautions which you should be
particularly aware of.
12.
1.
13.
Read Instructions - All the safety and operating instructions should be read before
the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating instructions should be retained for
future reference.
3. Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions
should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be followed.
5. Water and Moisture - The appliance should not be used near water - for example,
near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub or swimming pool, or in a wet
basement.
6. Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a cart or stand that is
recommended by the manufacturer.
6A.
An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the
appliance and cart combination to overturn.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to a wall or ceiling
only as recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location or position does
not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the appliance should not be
situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation
openings; or, placed in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet that may
impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
9. Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators,
heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
10. Power Sources - The appliance should be connected to a power supply only of the
type described in the operating instructions or as marked on the appliance.
11. Grounding or Polarization - Precautions should be taken so that the grounding or
polarization means of an appliance is not defeated.
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the
wide blade of this plug to the wide slot and fully insert.
Do not use this (polarized) plug with an extension cord,
AC Polarized
receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can be fully

Power Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not
likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying
particular attention to cords and plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the appliance.
Cleaning - The appliance should be cleaned only as recommended by the
manufacturer.
Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from power lines.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver,
be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built up static charges.
Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides
information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
connectors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes,
and requirements for the grounding electrode. See figure on page 7.
Nonuse Periods - The power cord of the appliance should be unplugged from the
outlet when left unused for a long period of time.
Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and
liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings.
Damage Requiring Service - The appliance should be serviced by qualified
service personnel when:
A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has spilled into the appliance; or
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change
in performance; or
E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
Servicing - The user should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in the operating instructions. All other servicing should be referred to
qualified service personnel.

General Information
Safety Information
• The typeplate (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 device complies with the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) rules, part 15
and with 21 CFR 1040.10. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions:
– This device may not cause harmful
interference, and
– This device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
• 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.

PREPARATION
Front Left and Right Speakers
For best listening effect, it is recommended to have the
Left and Right speakers to form an angle of approximately
45 degrees to the listener. Should the magnetic field from
the speakers affect the picture of the television, you should
increase the separation distance.
Rear (surround) Speakers
The surround speaker should be placed at normal listening
ear level. It can also be mounted on the wall at the back of
the room. Most important , sometimes you need to
experiment creatively when placing the surround speakers
in order to obtain the most ideal sound projection.
You can connect either an optional active subwoofer or an
optional wireless active subwoofer to the SUBWOOFER
OUT terminal. The wireless system uses a radio frequency
transmitter. The subwoofer reproduces just the low bass
effect (e.g. explosions, the rumble of the spaceships, etc.).
Be sure to follow the instructions supplied with the
subwoofer unit.
Note:
– Availability of wireless transmitter and its peripherals
are subjected to the approval of local authorities. Please
check with respective local safety or approving
authority.
G AC Power Supply
After all other connections have been made, connect the
AC power cord to the system and to the wall outlet.
