connections to other devices.
• If operating this unit on batteries, please use
rechargeable Ni-MH batteries or Alkaline batteries.
Placement
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other
equipment containing large power transformers)
may induce hum. To alleviate the problem, change
the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away
from the source of interference.
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place
it near devices that radiate heat, leave it inside
an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to
temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform
or discolor the unit.
• When moved from one location to another where
the temperature and/or humidity is very different,
water droplets (condensation) may form inside
the unit. Damage or malfunction may result if you
attempt to use the unit in this condition. Therefore,
before using the unit, you must allow it to stand
for several hours, until the condensation has
completely evaporated.
• Depending on the material and temperature of the
surface on which you place the unit, its rubber feet
may discolor or mar the surface. You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the
rubber feet to prevent this from happening. If you
do so, please make sure that the unit will not slip or
move accidentally.
Maintenance
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft,
dry cloth or one that has been slightly dampened
with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth
impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent.
Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly
with a soft, dry cloth.
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of
any kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration
and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the
unit’s buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when
using its jacks and connectors. Rough handling can

Make sure that you carefully observe all of the items related to batteries
that are listed in “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” (p. 2) and “IMPORTANT NOTES”
(p. 3).
* When operating on battery power only, the unit’s indicator will become
blink when battery power gets too low. Replace the battery as soon as
possible.
When the [BATTERY CHECK/MUTE] switched on, you
can check the amount of power remaining in the
batteries.
* When the [BATTERY CHECK/MUTE] switched on, the
indicator blinks, and sound will not produced from the
CUBE Street EX’s speakers or from LINE OUT jacks and PHONES jack.
* Sounds may distort easily or may cut off when played at high volume as
the battery power begins to fade, but this is normal and does not indicate
a malfunction. In such instances, either replace the batteries or use the AC
adaptor included with the unit.

This is a spacially synthesized chorus.
With spacially synthesized chorus, a method available only in stereo, the chorus effect
is created by taking the sound from the right speaker (from which the effect sound is
output), and the sound from the left speaker (which outputs the direct sound), and
then mixing them in the actual space. This creates a greater lateral spread than that
produced when the sounds are mixed electronically, providing a more natural sense
of breadth.
