Advarsel: Usynlig laserstråling ved åbning
når sikkerhedsafbrydere er ude af funktion.
Undgå utsættelse for stråling.
Luokan 1 laserlaite
Varoitus! Laitteen käyttäminen
muulla kuin tässä käyttöohjeessa mainitulla
tavalla saattaa altistaa käyttäjän
turvallisuusluokan 1 ylittävälle
näkymättömälle lasersäteilylle.
Oikeus muutoksiin varataan. Laite ei
saa olla alttiina tippu-ja roiskevedelle.
Bemærk: Netafbryderen er sekundært
indkoblet og ofbryder ikke strømmen fra
nettet. Den indbyggede netdel er derfor
tilsluttet til lysnettet så længe netstikket
sidder i stikkontakten.
S
Klass 1 laseraparat
Varning! Om apparaten används på annat
sätt än i denna bruksanvisning specificerats,
kan användaren utsättas för osynlig
laserstrålning, som överskrider gränsen för
laserklass 1.
Huom. Toiminnanvalitsin on kytketty
toisiopuolelle, eikä se kytke laitetta irti
sähköverkosta. Sisäänrakennettu verkkoosa on kytkettynä sähköverkkoon aina
silloin, kun pistoke on pistorasiassa.
Observera! Stömbrytaren är sekundärt
kopplad och bryter inte strömmen från
nätet. Den inbyggda nätdelen är därför
ansluten till elnätet så länge stickproppen
sitter i vägguttaget.

Safety Information
● Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage indicated on the typeplate 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, cur tains, 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.
● Install this unit near the AC outlet and where the
AC power plug can be reached easily.
● The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping
or splashing.
● If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens of the disc
unit inside the system. Should this occur, the CD
player would not operate normally. Leave the
power on for about one hour with no disc in the
system until normal playback is possible.
● 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.

General Information
English
Be sure to observe the following
guidelines when using your headphones.
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.
● 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.
● 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.
● Do not use headphones while operating a
motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.
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.
