swimming pool and the like).
8.
Accessories: Do not place this product on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. Use only with
carts, stands, tripods, brackets, or tables recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and cart
combination to overturn.
9.
Ventilation: Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from
overheating. These openings should never be blocked by placing the
product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should
not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer instructions have
been adhered to.
10. Power Sources: This product should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the rating label. If you are not sure of the type
of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power
company. For products intended to operate from battery power or other

11. Grounding or Polarization: This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug that has one blade wider than the other.
Page Coby Electronics Corporation
Important Safety Instructions
This plug will only fit into the power outlet in one direction. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the direction of the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact
an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
12. 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 at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and at the point which they exit from the product.
13. Protective Attachment Plug: The product may be equipped with an attachment plug with overload protection. This is a safety feature. See the
operating instructions for replacement or directions to reset the protective
device. If replacement of the plug is required, be sure the service technician has used a replacement plug that has the same overload protection
as the original plug as specified by the manufacturer.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding: If an outside antenna is connected to the
product, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANS/NFPA 70 provides information with
regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna- discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode (see figure).
15. Lightning: For added protection for this product, unplug it from the wall outlet
and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent
damage to the product due to lightning or power-line surges.

refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: a) when the power-supply or plug is damaged; b) if liquid has been
spilled or if objects have fallen into the product; c) if the product has been
exposed to rain or water; d) if the product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by
a qualified technician to restore the product to its normal operation; e)
if the product has been dropped or damaged in any way; f) when the
product exhibits a distinct change in performance—this indicates a need
for service.

Connections
Connecting to an Amplifier or Receiver
1.
Connect one end of the RCA audio cable (white and
red) to the Audio Out jacks (L and R) located on the
rear of the HDR-650.
2.
Connect the other end of the cable to the Audio
Line-In jacks of an amplifier or receiver (white, red).
3.
Set the amplifier/receiver to the source input that
corresponds with the Audio Line-In jacks. Refer to
the documentation that comes with your amplifier/receiver for more information.
For optimal volume control and audio fidelity, set the
volume level of the HDR-650 to approximately 80%,
and then adjust the volume to the desired level with the
controls of your amplifier/receiver.
AM Antenna
The unit comes with an AM loop antenna designed
specifically to receive AM signals.
1.
Plug the AM loop antenna into the AM Antenna Input
port located on the rear of the unit.
2.
Position and orient the antenna well away from the
unit for best reception.

FM Antenna
The unit comes with a fixed FM wire antenna.

Adjust the orientation of the antenna for best reception.
Headphones (Optional)
Connect headphones/earphones to the Headphone Out
jack for private listening.

Lower the volume level before connecting headphones, then gradually increase the volume for
comfortable listening.
Hearing experts advise against the constant use of
personal stereos played at high volume. Constant
high-volume use can lead to hearing loss. If you experience ringing in your ears or hearing loss, discontinue
use immediately and seek medical advice.
Connecting Power
Your HD radio should be connected to an AC 100-240V
wall outlet.

Using the supplied power adapter, plug one end of
the adapter to the unit’s Power In Jack and plug the
other end into an AC 100-240V wall outlet.
Do not connect the power plug to a power outlet other
than that which is indicated here or on the label as this
may result in the risk of fire or electric shock.
Page 16
Use only the AC adapter supplied. Failure to do so
may cause a fire or damage the unit.
