Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug(UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face
of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted. If the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same
colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain
a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do NOT connect the plug to
a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:–
BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:–

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.
Place the loudspeakers at a reasonable distance on either side of
the system to ensure good stereo sound.
Direct the loudspeakers towards the listening area.
For optimum performance, make sure that both speakers are placed
at an equal distance above the floor.

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:

The auxiliary input can be used to take advantage of the
sound quality of your micro-component system when listening
to other sources.
Examples: A television
A video disc player
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...
To the connector marked...
The loudspeaker connector terminals are located on the rear
of the system (red and black tabs).
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

How to connect a COAXIAL TYPE aerial.
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 14 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).
Example: You can watch a film and take advantage of stereo sound
provided that the original sound track is in stereo (as if you
were in a cinema).
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.

Safety Precautions
The following diagrams illustrate the precautions to be taken
when using or moving your micro-component system.
Connect the headphones to the Phones connector on the rear panel
(or top right corner).
GB
To obtain the best possible results from your
micro-component system, you must clean the following
elements regularly:
The outer casing
The compact disc player
The cassette players (heads, rollers and drive capstans)
Always unplug the system from the wall outlet:
Before cleaning it
If you are not going to be using it for a long time
Result: The loudspeakers are no longer used for sound output.
Prolonged use of headphones at a high volume may damage your
hearing.
Ambient operating conditions:
Ambient temperature
5 °C-35°C
Humidity
10-75%
Do not expose the unit to direct sun
radiation or other heat sources.
This could lead to overheating and
malfunction of the unit.
Outer Casing
Clean the outer casing regularly using a soft cloth and a light detergent. Do
not use abrasive powders, liquids or aerosol cleaners. Never let any liquids
get into the system.
Compact Disc Player
1
Before playing a compact disc, clean it with a special CD cleaning
agent. Do not use the same cleaning agents as for vinyl LP records.
Carefully wipe the disc from the centre outward.
2
Regularly clean the player with a special cleaning disc (available from
your local dealer).

Remove the batteries from the
remote control, if not used for any
extended period.
Leaking batteries can cause serious
damage to the remote control.
When using headphones, take care
not to listen at excessive volumes.
Extended use of headphones at
high volumes will lead to hearing
damage.
Do not place heavy items on the
main lead. Main cable damage can
lead to damage of the equipment (fire
hazard) and can cause electric
shock.
Do not remove any equipment panels.
The inside of the unit
contains live components, which
cause electric shock.
If you will not be using the remote control for a long time,
remove the batteries to prevent corrosion.
Although your system is very hard-wearing, it should not be
used in an excessively dusty environment or subjected to
shocks or extreme heat (close to heating appliances or in
direct sunlight, etc.).
If the unit emits an unpleasant odour when in use, unplug it
from the main supply and contact the after-sales service.
