Your receiver has been manufactured to meet the appropriate safety
standards, but the instructions below must be followed to operate it safely.
These instructions must be kept for future reference.
Before connecting the receiver to the mains, check that the mains supply voltage

apparatus that produce heat. Protect it from direct sunlight.
When installing the receiver, ensure there is a gap of approximately 2.5 cm around
the receiver to enable air to circulate freely and prevent overheating.
Leave accessible the mains connector at the back of the unit in case emergency
shutdown is required.
Do not place any combustible objects on the receiver (candles, etc.).
No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be placed on the unit.The receiver
shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing. Should this happen, disconnect your
receiver from the mains and consult your dealer.
Make sure that children do not place any foreign objects in any of the openings.
For cleaning, use a soft, damp (not wet) cloth. Never use any abrasive cloth and
