NOTES FOR USERS IN THE U.K. AND IRELAND
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable
(moulded) plug incorporating a 3A fuse. Should the fuse need to
be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked or
and of the same rating as above, which is also indicated on
the pin face of the plug must be used.
Important Instruction
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use
the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
2
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being
compatible with the plug supplied, cut-off the mains plug and fit
an appropriate type.
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off
plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet as a serious electric shock may
occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to
the earth terminal in your three pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover, make sure that:
● If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as
that removed from the cut-off plug.
● The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead
and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

Setting the FM/AM interval
The International Telecommunication Union
(ITU) has established that member countries should maintain either a 10 kHz or 9
kHz interval between broadcasting frequencies of AM stations and 100 kHz or 50 kHz
for FM stations. The illustration shows the
50/9 kHz zones (regions 1 and 3), and the
100/10 kHz zone (region 2).
This product is not equipped with a span selector. However, it will be
adjusted to a 9 kHz AM (50 kHz FM) interval when shipped from the factory.
Before using the unit, be sure to set it to the AM/FM tuning interval (span)
used in your area.
To change the AM/FM tuning interval (main unit only):
1 During demonstration mode, press the E SOUND/DEMO button to
enter the stand-by mode.
2 Whilst holding down the SNOOZE/DIMMER button, press the
ON/STAND-BY button.
3
Within 6 seconds, press the
or
button to select the interval
(span) in your area.
The display switches each time you press the
or
button.
Preparation for Use
Make sure to unplug the AC power lead before any connections.

Note:
When an external FM aerial is used, disconnect the supplied FM
aerial wire.
Within 6 seconds, press the
button.
The unit will enter the power stand-by mode automatically.
Note:
The AM/FM tuning interval will not change unless you press the
button within 6 seconds.
Caution:
When the unit is left for a few days after the span has been changed and
the AC power lead disconnected, the AM span will be automatically
returned to 9 kHz (FM span to 50 kHz). If this happens, set the span again.
When the span is changed, all the memorised stations will be cancelled.
This operation can not operate when alarm is activated.
Deactivate the alarm first. (refer page 30)
