PUBLIC ADDRESS
•
Select AUX function to prevent other noise pickup.
•
Insert microphone into either of the microphone input sockets.
•
Adjust MIC 1 or MIC 2 volume leveL and master volume control as required.
•
To add ambience to your voice adjust the ECHO control as required.
Note:
Prevent howling/whistle occurring ensure that the XB21/25 is facing away
from the person using the microphone.
6
SINGING TO MUSIC
The microphone can operate together with the TAPE, AUX, CD functions.
•
Select the desired function and operate that function according to the instructions given.
•
Insert the supplied microphone into either MIC input socket.
•
Move the microphone ON/OFF switch to the ON position and operate the microphone

HANDLING COMPACT DISCS
To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre of the case and lift the
disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc\s recorded surface with soft
cloth. Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no grooves to collect dust and
microscopic debris so gently wiping with a soft cloth should remove most particles. Wipe in
a straight line from the inside to the outside of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains
will have absolutely no effect on reproduction quality.
Never use chemicals such as record sprays, antistatic sprays, benzine, or thinners to clean
compact discs. These chemicals can damage the disc\s surface. Discs should be returned
to their cases after use. This avoids serious scratches that could cause the Laser pickup to
skip.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures for extended
periods. Long exposure to high temperatures can warp the disc.

CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:-(a)
Tape jamming -- Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
(b)
Tape tangling -- Where the tape itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions should be
observed.
Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette
centre window (see Fig.1).Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or
hexagonal barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette into the
machine (see Fig.2).
If the cassette feels "tight" while performing operation shown in Fig.2, the
tape may be jamming due to "ridges" formed in the winding of the tape
(visible through the centre window). These may be removed, in most cases,
by fast winding of the cassette from one end to the other and back again.
Use only well-known brands of tape.
Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch the
tape surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes particles of
the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape accumulate on these and impair performance.
Switch off the power , press the Stop/Eject Button to open the cassette door, and press the
Play Button. Use a proprietary tape head cleaner.
PREVENTION AGAINST ACCIDENTAL ERASURE
To prevent a recording on a cassette tape being erased
accidentally, break off the tab on the rear of the tape, as in the diagram.
Now recording on this side no longer possible. You can render this
protection ineffective by covering the hole with a piece of adhesive
tape.
13
MAINTENANCE AND CARE
Electronic products of this kind should never be subjected to extreme temperatures or high
humidity. For instance, this set should not be placed in bathing areas or around stoves and
radiators.
If necessary, clean the unit with a piece of cloth dampened with water only (BE sure the AC
Power Cord is disconnected from the mains). Never use a polish or a strong detergent as
this will damage the finish of the cabinet.
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet the highest international
standards, but, like any electrical apparatus which is operated at mains voltange, care must
be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured. This is particularly
important with audio equipment.
DO...
Read the operating instruction before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO...
Ensure that all electrical (including the mains plug, extension leads and
interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in
accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Check that the mains fuse
rating is correct.
DO...
Always consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation,
operation or safety of your equipment. He is the best person to advise you.
DON\T...
Obstruct the necessary all-round ventilation - especially DON'T stand the set
close to curtains or on soft furnishing such as carpets. Overheating can cause
unnecessary damage and shorten the life of the set.
Remember that to obtain the best performance and lasting satisfaction from your
Equipment, have it regularly maintained by a reliable service organization. Ensure that it is
correctly used by all the family.
ABOVE ALL...
Never let children push anything into holes or slots in the case - this could result in an
electric shock;
Never guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind - it is better to be safe
than sorry!

IMPORTANT NOTES
Hearing is very important to you and to us so please take care when operating this
equipment. It is strongly recommended that you follow the listed guidelines in order to
prevent possible damage or loss of hearing.
ESTABLISH A SAFE SOUND LEVEL
Over time your hearing will adapt to continous loud sounds and will give the impression that
the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To
guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEARING ADAPTS set the volume at a low lever.
Slowly increase the lever until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without distortion.
Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible.
Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.
Remember listening for prolonged period of time at high volume levers will harm your
hearing.
Once you have established a comfortable listening lever, DO NOT
INCREASE THE SOUND LEVEL FURTHER.
The following list of typical sound levels may assist you in recognising just how loud you
have set the volume level.
