SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (CONTINUED)
INFORMATION:
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.
SURGE PROTECTORS:
It is recommended to use a surge protector for AC connection. Lightning and
power surges ARE NOT covered under warranty for this product.
Dear Customer:
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the
start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize
the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the
Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get
the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the
sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and,
most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and
without distortion.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (CONTINUED)
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the
future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and
enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is
too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.

replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
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 at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the appliance.
LIGHTNING
To protect your product from a lightning storm,
or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the

POWER LINES
An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines
or other electric light or power circuits, or where
it can fall into such power lines or circuits.
When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact
with them might be fatal.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Caring for Compact Discs
• Treat the compact disc carefully. Handle the
compact disc only by its edges. Never allow your
fingers to come in contact with the shiny, unprinted
side of the compact disc.
• Do not attach adhesive tape, stickers, etc. to the
compact disc label.
• Clean the compact disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use
detergents or abrasive cleaners to clean the compact disc. If necessary, use a
CD cleaning kit.
• If a disc skips or gets stuck on a section of the compact disc, it is probably
dirty or damaged (scratched).
• When cleaning the compact disc, wipe in straight lines from the center of the
compact disc to the outer edge of the compact disc. Never wipe in circular
motions.
B ENZEN E
C LE A N E R
• This unit is designed to play only compact discs bearing the
identification logo as shown here. Other discs may not conform to
the CD standard and may not play properly.
• Compact discs should be stored in their cases after each use to
avoid damage.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, high
temperatures, or dust, etc. Prolonged exposure or extreme temperatures can
warp the compact disc.
• Do not stick or write anything on either side of the compact disc. Sharp writing
instruments, or the ink may damage the surface.
Cleaning the unit
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, disconnect your unit from the AC power
source when cleaning.
• The finish on your unit may be cleaned with a dust cloth and cared for as
other furniture. Use caution when cleaning and wiping the plastic parts.
• Mild soap and a damp cloth may be used on the front panel.
