Remote handset battery replacement
Introduction
1. Remove the battery cover on the front of your remote control by pushing
the battery door in and downwards.
2. Insert 2 x AAA size batteries into the compartment. Make sure the (+)
and the (-) ends of the batteries are positioned as shown inside the
compartment. Close the battery cover.
3. If the remote is not to be used for an extended period of time it is
recommended that the batteries are removed.
IMPORTANT: The batteries should not be exposed to excessive
heat such as sunshine, fire or the like. After use, disposable
batteries should if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre.
On no account should batteries be disposed of by incineration.
If you need any further advice, please call our Technical Helpline on :020 8758 0338 (Mon-Fri)

Connecting loudspeakers
The loudspeakers should be connected using the cables supplied as shown. The two loudspeakers are identical. One loudspeaker should be placed
in front of and to the left of the normal listening position, and the other in front and to the right.
It is important for good bass reproduction and stereo location that both speakers are wired in the same phase with respect to the amplifier outputs.
This can be done as follows.
Connect the plug of the speaker wire into the socket on the rear of sound system marked L for the left hand speaker.
Connect the plug of the speaker wire into the socket on the rear of sound system marked R for the right hand speaker.
The placement of the loudspeakers will depend upon the layout of the room. Location is not critical, but do not place them in direct sunlight or over
sources of heat such as radiators. Optimum sound quality will result if they are to be placed slightly away from any corners, and with each loudspeaker
an equal distance from the normal listening position and pointing towards the listener.

3. Plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the back of your
sound system ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
4. Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch
on the wall socket.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting
the sound system to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the
sound system must remain accessible during normal use. In order to
disconnect the sound system from the mains completely, the mains
plug should be removed from the mains socket outlet completely.
5. When your sound system is first switched on the clock display will
show 0:00 and the unit will enter the standby mode.
6. When a signal has been found, the display will show the correct time.
7. If a signal has not been found it may then be necessary to relocate
your sound system to a position giving better reception. You should
then carry out an autoscan to find stations as described on page 13.

CD / MP3 / WMA
Compact discs
Use only Digital Audio CDs which have the
symbol.
Never write on a CD or attach any sticker to the CD. Always hold the CD
at the edge and store it in its box after use with the label facing up.
To remove dust and dirt, breathe on the CD and wipe it with a soft, lint free
cloth in a straight line from the centre towards the edge.
Cleaning agents may damage the CD.
*
Do not expose the CD to rain, moisture, sand or to excessive heat. (e.g
from heating equipment or in motor cars parked in the sun).
Note:
Transparent or partly transparent CDs may not always be playable.
Unusually thin (Eco) CDs cannot be played. Some copy-protected
CDs may not be playable.
CD-R/CD-RW discs
Your Sound 70 can playback CD-DA format audio CD-R/CD-RW discs
that have been finalised* upon completion of recording.
*Finalising enables a CD-R/CD-RW disc to playback on audio players
such as your Sound 70. A disc which has not been finalised may have
information added to it using a computer but may not always be playable.
You may have to specifically enable the finalising step with some CD
writing software.
Your Sound 70 may fail to play some CD-R/CD-RW discs due to poor
recording and wide variation in quality of the CD-R/CD-RW disc.

WARNING
CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT means that the laser's construction makes
it inherently safe so that the legally prescribed maximum permissible
radiation values can never be exceeded.
Caution: Using any equipment or devices other than those described and
specified in these operating instructions, or tampering with the unit in any
way, can result in dangerous exposure to radiation.
MP3 / WMA CD Mode
The Sound 70 is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3
or WMA files.
In MP3 / WMA mode the terms "album" and "file" are very important. "Album"
corresponds to a folder on a PC, "File " to an audio track in MP3 or WMA
format. The sound system reads MP3 or WMA files with a maximum of
255 files per folder. An MP3 or WMA CD may not contain more than 512
files or albums in total. MP3 or WMA files must be created with an audio
sample rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal for files created from CD audio
content). Both MP3 and WMA files may be recorded on to the same media.
When burning CD-R and CD-RWs with audio files, various problems may
arise which could lead to interference in playback. This can be caused
by faulty software or hardware settings in your PC or by the CD being
used. Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your
CD burner or software manufacturer or look for relevant information, for
example on the internet. When you are making audio CDs, observe all legal
guidelines and ensure that the copyright of third parties is not infringed.

Using SD cards or USB memory devices
This section describes how to use your sound system to access and
playback your audio files via USB memory devices and Secure Digital
(SD, SDHC) cards.
Important: Your sound system is only designed to work with USB memory
flash memory devices. It is not intended to be connected to hard disk drives
or any other type of USB device.
The Sound 70 has been tested with a range of USB memory devices of up
to 32GB capacity and SD cards up to 2GB and SDHC cards up to 32GB
are supported. However, there are many different card variants available
and not all cards can be guaranteed to work in the Sound 70. Memory must
use the FAT or FAT 32 filing system in order to operate in the Sound 70.
Cautions:
In order to minimise the risk of damage to your sound system, your SD
card or your USB memory, please place the unit such that the device
cannot easily be knocked while it is inserted in the socket.
Remove the USB memory or SD card before carrying the unit or if not
using the USB or SD feature for a prolonged period.
Place the unit in Standby mode before removing your SD card or USB
memory device.
Audio formats supported for playback are MP3 and WMA. Playback does
not support files encoded using WMA lossless, WMA Voice, WMA 10
professional, nor files of any format which have DRM protection.
SD card and USB slots are located underneath the front panel on your
sound system.
Inserting and removing memory devices
1. Ensure your sound system is in standby mode.
2. To insert an SD card into your sound system push the card label side
upward and gold contacts first into the card slot on the front of your
sound system until it clicks. To remove the card push the card in so
that it clicks once more. It will then be pushed out slightly allowing
removal.
USB memory devices plug into the rectangular slot on the front of your
sound system.
