FCC Informatiom
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
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 the packing
material 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 pressing the OPEN/CLOSE position at front
of top cover. Inside the CD compartment you will see a dummy CD
protection card which is used to prevent the laser pick-up from moving
during shipment. Carefully remove this card and close the CD 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.
• The AC power cord and the remote control handset are located inside the
polyfoam packing material. Make sure that you do not accidentally discard
the accessories with the packing material.
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.
Power Sources
This unit is designed to operate on 8 “C” batteries, not included, or on normal 120V
60Hz AC house current. Operating this unit from any other power source may
cause damage to the unit, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.

AC Operation
Connect the small end of the AC Power Cord to the AC socket on the back cabinet,
then insert the plug in any convenient household 120V 60Hz AC outlet.

L
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.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
• Make sure that you have properly installed the batteries and/or connected
the AC power cord.
• Make sure that you have removed the battery spacer tab from the remote
control handset.
• Make sure that you have removed and discarded the dummy CD transit
protection card in the CD compartment.
• When operating this system on AC power be sure to use an AC outlet that
is always ‘live’. Do not connect this system to an outlet that is controlled
by a wall switch.
General Controls
Most of the main functions of this system can be operated by the controls on the
front panel of the main unit, or by the buttons on the remote control handset. If a
specific function can only be operated by the remote handset, or by the front panel
controls, this will be clearly indicated in the instructions.
When operating this system with the remote control handset make sure that the
IR (Infrared) transmitter on the front of the remote handset is pointed at the remote
sensor on the front panel of the main unit.
The effective operating range of the remote control is approximately 15 feet. Please
note that bright sunlight or room lighting may interfere with the remote control
operation. If the remote is not operating properly try reducing the brightness of the
room or moving closer to the main unit. If this does not solve the problem, it may
be time to change the remote control battery.
PHONES Jack
Connect a set of stereo headphones (not included) with a 3.5mm mini plug to the
PHONES jack (located at front panel) for private listening without disturbing others.
Before putting on the headphones reduce the VOLUME control to a low level, then
put the headphones on and gradually increase the VOLUME control to a comfortable
listening level. The built in speakers are automatically disconnected when
headphones are connected to the PHONES jack.

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.
