Safety Precautions
Table OF CONTentS
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THE UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT OPEN THE CABINET. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL
ONLY.
The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing and that no objects filled with
liquid, such as vases, shall be placed on the apparatus.
DO NOT TOUCH THE LENS
CAUTION: INVISIBLE LASER RADIATION
WHEN OPEN AND INTERLOCKS DEFEATED
AVOID EXPOSURE TO BEAM
This product contains
a low power laser
device.
Warnings:
• The AC adapter is used as disconnect device and it should remain readily operable during intended used. In order to
disconnect the apparatus from the mains completely, the AC adapter should be disconnected from the mains socket outlet
completely.
• Minimum 10 cm (4 inches) distances around the apparatus for sufficient ventilations.
• Batteries shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like.
• The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the ventilation openings with items such as newspaper, table-cloths,
curtains, etc.
• No naked flame sources such as lighted candles should be placed on the apparatus.
On Safety
As the laser beam used in this disc player could be harmful to the eyes, do not attempt to disassemble the casing. Refer
servicing to qualified personnel only.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the disc compartment. If you do so, the laser beam interlock may be defeated allowing
the laser to remain on when the lid is opened.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN jack. Should any objects or liquids fall into the unit, disconnect the power
supply and have the unit checked by qualified personnel before any further operation.
On Operation
Since the CD system offers a wide dynamic range, the peaks of the high level inputs are recorded with high fidelity, and the
noise level is very low. Do not turn up the volume while listening to a part of the disc with no audio signals or very low level
inputs. If you do so, the speakers may be damaged when the peak level of the sound is played. The lens of the laser should
be kept clean. Do not touch the lens. If you do so, the lens may be damaged and the unit will not operate correctly.

On Use
Use the apparatus in moderate climates. Never use the unit where it would be subject to:
- Heat sources such as radiators or air ducts.
- Direct sunlight.
- Excessive dust.
- Moisture or rain.
- Mechanical vibration or shock.
- Uneven surface.
• Do not place any heavy objects on top of the unit.
• When the unit is used with an AC power adapter, do not wrap the unit in a cloth, blanket, etc. If you do so, the temperature
inside and outside the unit may rise considerably, resulting in malfunctioning of the unit.
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, the moisture may condense
on the lens inside the unit. Should this occur, the unit will not operate. In this case, remove the disc and leave the unit
in a warm place for several hours until the moisture evaporates.
• For the unit to operate at its best, it should not be subject to temperatures below 41°F (5°C) or above 95°F (35°C)
