SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS – Read before operating equipment
English
This product was designed and manufactured to meet strict quality and safety standards.
There are, however, some installation and operation precautions which you should be
particularly aware of.
12.
1.
13.
Read Instructions - All the safety and operating instructions should be read before
the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating instructions should be retained for
future reference.
3. Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions
should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be followed.
5. Water and Moisture - The appliance should not be used near water - for example,
near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub or swimming pool, or in a wet
basement.
6. Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a cart or stand that is
recommended by the manufacturer.
6A.
An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the
appliance and cart combination to overturn.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to a wall or ceiling
only as recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location or position does
not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the appliance should not be
situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation
openings; or, placed in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet that may
impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
9. Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators,
heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
10. Power Sources - The appliance should be connected to a power supply only of the
type described in the operating instructions or as marked on the appliance.
11. Grounding or Polarization - Precautions should be taken so that the grounding or
polarization means of an appliance is not defeated.
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the
wide blade of this plug to the wide slot and fully insert.
Do not use this (polarized) plug with an extension cord,
AC Polarized
receptacle or other outlet unless the blades can be fully
Plug
inserted to prevent blade exposure.

15.
16.
17.
18.
19.
Power Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not
likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying
particular attention to cords and plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the appliance.
Cleaning - The appliance should be cleaned only as recommended by the
manufacturer.
Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from power lines.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver,
be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built up static charges.
Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides
information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
connectors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes,
and requirements for the grounding electrode. See figure on page 7.
Non-use Periods - The power cord of the appliance should be unplugged from the
outlet when left unused for a long period of time.
Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and
liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings.
Damage Requiring Service - The appliance should be serviced by qualified
service personnel when:
A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has spilled into the appliance; or
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change
in performance; or
E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
Servicing - The user should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in the operating instructions. All other servicing should be referred to
qualified service personnel.

materials: cardboard (box), polystyrene
foam (buffer) and polyethylene (bags,
protective foam sheet).
Your system consists of materials which
can be recycled and reused if disassembled
by a specialized company. Please observe
the local regulations regarding the disposal
of packaging materials, exhausted
batteries and old equipment.

– Batteries (two AA size) for remote
control
– AM loop antenna
– FM wire antenna
– AC power cord
– SS1 surround speakers (for model
FW540C only)

Safety Information
• Before operating the system, check that
the operating voltage indicated on the
typeplate (or the voltage indication
beside the voltage selector) of your
system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply. If not, please
consult your dealer. The typeplate is
located at the rear of your system.
• When the system is switched on, do not
move it around.
• Place the system on a solid base (e.g. a
cabinet).
• Place the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build-up in the system.
• The system incorporates a built-in
safety feature that prevents
overheating.
• Do not expose the system to excessive
moisture, rain, sand or heat sources.
• Under no circumstances should you
repair the system yourself, as this will
invalidate the warranty!
• If the system is brought directly from a
cold to a warm location, or is placed in a
very damp room, moisture may
condense on the lens of the CD unit
inside the system. Should this occur, the
CD player will not operate normally.
Leave the power on for about one hour
with no disc in the system until normal
playback is possible.
• Electrostatic discharge may cause
unexpected problems. See whether
these problems disappear if you unplug
the AC power cord and plug it in again
after a few seconds.
• To disconnect the system from the
power supply completely, remove
the AC power plug from the wall
socket.

Dolby Pro Logic (for FW748P only)
This state of the art Dolby Pro Logic mini
system enables you to experience and
enjoy a Home Cinema sound ambience. The
Pro Logic system allows more accurate
definition of the individual sound sources.
It produces greater sound separation
between channels and provides pinpoint
sound localization. Pro Logic provides four
sound outputs: Left, Center, Right and
Surround (Rear). Front sounds are produced
from the pair of Left and Right speakers
and a Center speaker. The surround sound
is reproduced by two speakers placed at
the rear of the listening area. Although the
surround sound is monaural (single-source),
a pair of speakers is necessary to produce
the correct diffused sound.
This Pro Logic decoder enables you to
decode the following modes: Dolby
Surround, Center Phantom, Dolby 3
Stereo or normal Stereo.
• Rear (surround) speakers: Connect
either the wired rear surround speakers
or a pair of wireless rear speakers (not
supplied) to the SURROUND OUT
terminals.
