device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

PREPARATION FOR USE
UNPACKING AND SET UP
• Carefully remove the unit from the carton and remove all packing materials
from the unit.
• Carefully remove any small strips of tape which may have been used to keep
the CD door closed during shipment.
• Open the CD compartment by lifting the “OPEN/CLOSE” tab on right side of
CD door. Inside the CD compartment you will see a white transit card which is
used to prevent the laser pick-up from moving during shipment. Carefully
remove this card and close the CD compartment door.
• Please save the carton and packing materials in the event that your unit ever
needs to be returned for service. The original carton and packing materials are
the only way to protect the unit from damage during shipment.
• Unwind the FM lead wire antenna and extend it to its full length.
• Remove the twist-tie from the AC power cord and extend it to its full length.
PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

SPEAKER CONNECTION
Connect each speaker to the corresponding speaker terminals on the back panel
of the main unit. Make sure that:
• The left speaker is connected to the (L) left pair of speaker terminals, and the
right speaker to the (R) right pair of speaker terminals.
Also make sure that the speaker wires are correctly connected:
• That the red wires are connected to the red (+) terminals, and the black wires to
the black (–) terminals.
Depress the plastic lever to open the terminal, insert the bare end of the speaker
wire into the opening and release.

POWER SOURCE
This system is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC house current only.
Attempting to operate this system from any other power source may cause damage
to the system, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Unwind the AC power cord and connect the AC plug to your AC outlet.
NOTE:
This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade. This
plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety feature to
reduce the possibility of electric shock.
If this plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarized
outlet. You should have your outdated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed
electrician.
Do not file the wide blade on the plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into
your outlet. This defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
When the batteries become too weak, the operating distance of the remote control
is greatly reduced and you will need to replace the batteries.
USING THE REMOTE CONTROL CORRECTLY
• Point the remote control at the REMOTE SENSOR.
• The functions of the buttons on the remote control are the same as the
corresponding controls on the main unit.
• When there is a strong ambient light source, the performance of the infrared
Remote Sensor may be degraded, causing unreliable operation.
• The maximum effective distance for remote control operation is about 15 feet.
BATTERY PRECAUTIONS
Follow these precautions when using batteries in this device:
1.) Use only the size and type of batteries specified.
2.) Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery
compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.
3.) Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-Zinc) or old
batteries with fresh ones.
4.) If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent
damage or injury from possible battery leakage.
5.) Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and
rupture. (Follow battery manufacturer’s directions.)

length. You may also have to vary the direction of this antenna until you find
the position that provides the best reception.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
COMPACT DISC CARE
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center 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 a 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.
• Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
• Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINET
If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
CAUTION
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
