Environmental information
All unnecessary packaging has been omitted. We
have tried to make the packaging easy to
separate into three materials: cardboard (box),
polystyrene foam (buffer) and polyethylene (bags,
protective foam sheet).
Your system consists of materials which can be
recycled and reused if disassembled by a
specialised company. Please observe the local
regulations regarding the disposal of packaging
materials, exhausted batteries and old
equipment.
● The lens may cloud over when the system is
suddenly moved from cold to warm
surroundings, making it impossible to play a disc.
Leave the system in the warm environment until
the moisture evaporates.
● The mechanical parts of the set contain selflubricating bearings and must not be oiled or
lubricated.
● When the system is switched to Standby
mode, it is still consuming some power.
To disconnect the system from the
power supply completely, remove the AC
power plug from the wall socket.
Safety information
● Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage indicated on the typeplate (or
the voltage indication beside the voltage
selector) of your system is identical with the
voltage of your local power supply. If not, please
consult your dealer.
● Place the system on a flat, hard and stable
surface.
● Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent internal heat build-up in
your system. Allow at least 10 cm (4 inches)
clearance from the rear and the top of the unit
and 5 cm (2 inches) from each side.
● The ventilation should not be impeded by
covering the ventilation openings with items,
such as newspapers, table-cloths, curtains, etc.
● Do not expose the system, batteries or discs to
excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources
caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight.
● No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles,
should be placed on the apparatus.
● No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall
be placed on the apparatus.

Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
● Using headphones at a high volume can impair
your hearing. This product can produce sounds
in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for
a normal person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered
for those that may have already experienced
some hearing loss.
● Do not use headphones while operating a
motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.
● Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
"comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds
"normal" can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
● Set your volume control at a low setting.
● Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of
time:
● Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally
"safe" levels, can also cause hearing loss.
● Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and
take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following
guidelines when using your
headphones.
● Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable
periods of time.
● Be careful not to adjust the volume as your
hearing adapts.
● Do not turn up the volume so high that you
can't hear what's around you.
● You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations.

equipment (TV, VCR, Laser Disc player, DVD
player or CD Recorder).
Note:
– If you are connecting equipment with a mono
output (a single audio out terminal), connect it to
the AUX left terminal. Alternatively, you can use a
“single to double” cinch cable (the output sound
still remain mono).
