Connect the outdoor antenna.
Before attaching a 75-ohm coaxial cable (the kind with a round
wire going to an outdoor antenna), disconnect the supplied FM
antenna.
How to strip the 75-ohm coaxial cable and connect it
to the FM terminals
• DO NOT use an old battery together with a
new one.
• DO NOT use different types of batteries
together.
• DO NOT expose batteries to heat or flame.
• DO NOT leave the batteries in the battery
compartment when you are not going to use
the remote control for an extended period of
time. Otherwise, it will be damaged from
battery leakage.
1. Strip off the outside covering of the 75-ohm coaxial cable to
expose the braided metallic mesh about 20 mm (13/16
inches).
2. Pull the mesh back and twist it into a single connector as
shown in the illustration above.
3. Strip the insulation about 10 mm (7/16 inches) back from
the central wire.
4. Insert the twisted mesh and the central wire to the FM
terminals, as shown in the illustration above.

3 Release the finger from the clamp.
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.
IMPORTANT: Use only speakers with the same speaker
impedance as indicated by the speaker terminals on the rear of
the unit.

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.
DO NOT use any solvent — such as conventional
record cleaner, spray, thinner, or benzine — to
