Introduction
We would like to thank you for purchasing one of our JVC products.
Before operating this unit, read this manual carefully and thoroughly to
obtain the best possible performance from your unit, and retain this manual
for future reference.
About This Manual
Moisture condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the unit in the
following cases:
• After starting heating in the room
• In a damp room
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm place.
Should this occur, the unit may malfunction. In this case,
leave the unit turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then plug it in
again.
This manual is organized as follows:
• The manual mainly explains operations using the
buttons and controls on the unit. You can also use the
buttons on the remote control if they have the same or
similar names (or marks) as those on the unit.
If operation using the remote control is different from
that using the unit, it is then explained.
• Basic and common information that is the same for many
functions is grouped in one place, and is not repeated in
each procedure. For instance, we do not repeat the
information about turning on/off the unit, setting the
volume, changing the sound effects, and others, which are
explained in the section “Common Operations” on pages
10 to 12.
• The following marks are used in this manual:
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the unit,
unplug the unit and consult your dealer before operating
any further.
• If you are not going to operate the unit for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall
outlet.
Gives you warnings and cautions to prevent
from damage or risk of fire/electric shock.
Also gives you information which is not good
for obtaining the best possible performance
from the unit.
DO NOT disassemble the unit since there are no
user serviceable parts inside.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your dealer.
Gives you information and hints you had better
know.
Which compact discs can be used?
Many types of compact discs are sold for a variety of uses.
The player can play the following compact discs:
Precautions

prevent internal heat buildup in the unit.
• Leave sufficient distance between the unit and the TV.
• Keep the speakers away from the TV to avoid interference

compartment.
When the remote control can no longer operate the unit,
replace both batteries at the same time.
2 Extend the FM antenna.
3 Fasten it up in the position which gives you
the best reception, then fix it on the wall, etc.
About the supplied FM antenna
The FM antenna supplied with this unit can be used as temporary

To connect an outdoor AM antenna
When reception is poor, connect a single vinyl-covered wire
to the AM EXT terminal and extend it horizontally. The AM
loop antenna must remain connected.
For better reception of both FM and AM
• Make sure the antenna conductors do not touch any other
terminals and connecting cords.
• Keep the antennas away from metallic parts of the unit,
connecting cords, and the AC power cord.
2 Insert the end of the speaker cord into the
terminal.
Match the polarity (colours) of the speaker terminals: Red
(+) to red (+) and black (–) to black (–); Blue (+) to blue
(+) and black (–) to black (–).
3 Close the speaker terminals.
IMPORTANT: Use only speakers with the same speaker
impedance as indicated by the speaker terminals on the
rear of the unit.
• DO NOT connect more than one speaker to
each speaker terminal.
• DO NOT push or pull the speakers as this will
damage the foot spacers at the bottom of the

Music Scan works by detecting a 4-second long blank
between each song, so it will not work well in the
following cases
• No blank at the beginning of a song.
• Noise (often caused by much use or poor quality dubbing) which
fills the blank.
• Long, very soft passages or pauses in a song.
To remove the cassette, press 0 EJECT for deck A or

Recording a Tape on Deck B
IMPORTANT:
• It may be unlawful to record or play back copyrighted
material without the consent of the copyright owner.
• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is
not affected by the VOLUME, the SUBWOOFER LEVEL,
and the SOUND MODE controls. Thus, during recording
you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to

page 26).
• When the source is deck A, you can also use the
dubbing method. (See “Dubbing Tapes” on page 25.)
To keep the best recording and playback sound quality
If the heads, capstans, and pinch rollers of the cassette decks

Maintenance
To get the best performance of the unit, keep your discs, tapes, and mechanism clean.
Handling discs
Handling cassette tapes
• Remove the disc from its case by
holding it at the edge while pressing the
center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of the
disc, or bend the disc.
• Put the disc back in its case after use to
prevent warping.
• If the tape is loose in its cassette, take
up the slack by inserting a pencil in
one of the reels and rotating.
• If the tape is loose, it may get
stretched, cut, or caught in the
cassette.
• Be careful not to touch the tape
surface.
• Be careful not to scratch the surface of
the disc when placing it back in its
case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight,
temperature extremes, and moisture.
• Avoid the following places to store the
tape:
— In dusty places
— In direct sunlight or heat
— In moist areas
— Near a magnet
To clean the disc
Wipe the disc with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
Cleaning the unit
DO NOT use any solvent — such as conventional
record cleaner, spray, thinner, or benzine — to
clean the disc.
• Stains on the unit
Should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the unit is heavily
stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-diluted neutral
detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.
• Since the unit may deteriorate in quality, become
damaged or suffer surface wear, be careful about the
following:
— DO NOT wipe it with a hard cloth.
— DO NOT wipe it with excessive force.
— DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.
— DO NOT apply any volatile substance such as
insecticides to it.
