PRECAUTIONS: READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT
■ To assure the finest performance, please read this manual
carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
•
■ This system is equipped with the newly developed Active Servo
Processing Speaker System. It is not designed for use with
conventional speakers. Therefore, do not attempt to connect
other speakers than the provided speaker system.
•
■ Choose the installation location of this unit carefully. Avoid
placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also avoid
locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat, cold or
moisture. Keep it away from sources of hum such as
transformers and electric motors.
•
CD pickup
Leave the power on with no disc in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Tape head
Leave the power on with no cassette in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Note
If condensation forms on the tape head, foreign matter may
accumulate during use.
Remote control
Wipe off condensation on the transmitter window with a soft
cloth before operating the unit.
■ Do not operate this unit upside-down. It may overheat, possibly
causing damage.
■ Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the set, contact
your dealer.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of this unit in the space below.
■ The openings on the rear assure proper ventilation of the unit. If
these openings are obstructed, the temperature inside the
cabinet will rise rapidly and eventually damage the circuits.
Therefore, avoid placing objects against these openings and do
not install the unit where the flow of air through the ventilation
openings could be impeded.
Serial No.:
The serial number is located on the rear of the unit.
Retain this Owner’s Manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
■ Always set the VOLUME control to minimum before starting the
audio source: increase the volume gradually to an appropriate
level after play has started.
■ When not planning to use this unit for long periods of time (ie.,
vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the wall outlet.
NOTE
Please check the copyright laws in your country to record from
records, compact discs, radio, etc. Recording of copyright material
may infringe copyright laws.
■ Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be taken so that
the grounding or polarization of an appliance is not defeated.
■ Do not use force on switches, controls or connection wires. When
moving the unit, first disconnect the power plug and the wires
connected to other equipment. Never pull the wire itself.
■ Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents; this might
damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
■ Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section regarding
common operating errors before concluding that the unit is faulty.
■ To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power plug and
the antenna cable when there is an electrical storm.
■ Do not plug the AC power plug to the wall socket before you
finish all connections.
■ Never allow metallic items (e.g. screwdrivers, tools, etc.) to come
near the cassette deck’s record/playback head assembly in this
unit. Doing so may not only scratch or damage the head’s mirrorsmooth finish, it may change the magnetic characteristics of the
heads, causing a deterioration in reproduction performance
quality.
■ Although the cassette deck’s record/playback heads used in this
unit are high quality heads with outstanding reproduction
characteristics, they can become dirty through the use of old
tapes or from dust accumulation over time. This can have a
serious effect on reproduction quality. Clean the heads regularly
with one of the commonly available head cleaners or with
cleaning solutions.
■ The voltage to be used must be the same as that specified on
this unit. Using this product with a higher voltage than that which
is specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or other type of
accident causing damage. YAMAHA will not be held responsible
for any damage resulting from use of this unit with a voltage other
than that which is specified.
■ The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker
location and other factors. Care should be taken to avoid
exposure to sudden high levels of sound, which may occur when
turning on the unit with the volume control setting at high, and to
continuous high levels of sound.
■ Sudden temperature changes and storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside the
cabinet.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction.
To eliminate condensation:

Clean these parts with a cotton swab moistened with
commercially available head/pinch roller cleaner or
isopropyl alcohol, or with a commercially available
cleaning tape.
After long use, the deck’s heads and capstans may
become magnetized, causing poor sound. Demagnetize
these parts once every 30 hours of playing/recording time
by using a commercial tape head demagnetizer. Read the
demagnetizer’s instructions carefully before use.
