DO NOT OPEN

AVIS

RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE

NE PAS OUVRIR

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated

“dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance

(servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

11.

Power Sources

—The appliance should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company.

12.

• Moisture condensation can occur in the following situations:

— The unit is moved from a cold place to a warm place.

— A heater is turned on, or cold air from an air conditioner is hitting the unit.

— In the summer, when this unit is moved from an air conditioned room to a hot and humid place.

— The unit is used in a humid place.

• Do not use this unit when there’s the possibility of moisture condensation occurring. Doing so may damage your discs and certain parts inside this unit.

If condensation does occur, remove all discs and leave this unit turned on for two to three hours. By this time, the unit will have warmed up and any condensation will have evaporated. To reduce the risk of condensation, keep this unit connected to a wall outlet.

For British models

Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel.

IMPORTANT

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Blue: Neutral

Brown: Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.

IMPORTANT

A 5 ampere fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5 amperes and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362. Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.

IF THE FITTED MOULDED PLUG IS UNSUITABLE

FOR THE SOCKET OUTLET IN YOUR HOME THEN

THE FUSE SHOULD BE REMOVED AND THE PLUG

CUT OFF AND DISPOSED OF SAFELY. THERE IS A

DANGER OF SEVERE ELECTRICAL SHOCK IF THE

CUT OFF PLUG IS INSERTED INTO ANY 13 AMPERE

SOCKET.

If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

Memory backup

The CR-L5 uses a battery-less memory backup system in order to retain radio presets and other settings when it’s unplugged or in the case of a power failure. Although no batteries are required, the CR-L5 must be plugged into an

AC outlet in order to charge the backup system.

Once it has been charged, the CR-L5 will retain the settings for several weeks, although this depends on the environment and will be shorter in humid climates. The clock setting is not retained by the backup system.

This label is located on the rear panel. It indicates that:

1. This unit is a CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT and employs a laser inside the cabinet.

2. To prevent the laser from being exposed, do not remove the cover. Refer servicing to qualified personnel.

Connecting Your Speakers

Before you connect your speakers, read the following:

• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.

• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.

• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. Connect positive (+) terminals only to positive (+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals only to negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound odd.

• If you’re connecting two sets of speakers (i.e., speaker set

A

and

speaker set B), the minimum impedance for each speaker is 8

. If you’re connecting only one set of speakers (i.e., speaker set A

or

speaker set B), the minimum impedance for each speaker is 4

. Don’t connect speakers with a lower impedance.

• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may affect the sound quality and should be avoided.

• Be careful not to short the positive and negative connections. Doing so may damage your CR-L5.

• Don’t connect more than one cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage your CR-L5.

• If you want to connect a single speaker instead of a pair of speakers, don’t connect it to both the left and right speaker terminals.

You can use two sets of speakers with your CR-L5: speaker set A and speaker set B.

Speaker set A

consists of front left and right speakers and a subwoofer and should be installed in your main listening room.

Speaker set B

consists of front left and right speakers and can be installed in another room, such as a dining room or kitchen.

1

Strip 15 mm (5/8") of insulation from the ends of the speaker cables, and twist the bare wires tightly, as shown.

2

Unscrew the terminal.

Connecting the Indoor FM Antenna

The supplied indoor FM antenna is for indoor use only.

1

Attach the FM antenna, as shown.

ANTENNA

FM 75

Insert the plug fully into the socket.

Once your CR-L5 is ready for use, you’ll need to tune into an FM radio station and adjust the position of the

FM antenna to achieve the best possible reception.

2

Use thumbtacks or something similar to fix the FM antenna into position.

2

Connect both wires of the AM loop antenna to the AM push terminals, as shown.

(The antenna’s wires are not polarity sensitive, so they can be connected either way around.)

Make sure that the wires are attached securely and that the push terminals are gripping the bare wires, not the insulation.

Push Insert wire Release

Thumbtacks, etc.

AM

Once your CR-L5 is ready for use, you’ll need to tune into an AM radio station and adjust the position of the

AM antenna to achieve the best possible reception.

Keep the antenna as far away as possible from your

CR-L5, TV, speaker cables, and power cords.

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor AM loop antenna, try using it with a commercially available outdoor AM antenna (see page 15).

Caution:

Be careful that you don’t injure yourself when using thumbtacks.

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor

FM antenna instead (see page 15).

Connecting an Outdoor FM Antenna

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor

FM antenna instead.

Connecting an Outdoor AM Antenna

If good reception cannot be achieved using the supplied AM loop antenna, an outdoor AM antenna can be used in addition to the loop antenna, as shown.

Insulated antenna cable

ANTENNA

FM 75

Notes:

• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an attic or loft.

• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line of sight to your local FM transmitter.

• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.

• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated well away from power lines and other high-voltage equipment.

• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards. See item 14 of the “Important Safeguards” on page 2 of this manual.

Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter

It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as shown.

AM

Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed outside horizontally, but good results can sometimes be obtained indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.

Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards. See item 14 of the “Important Safeguards” on page 2 of this manual.

Timers

About the Timers

The CR-L5 has four timers that you can use to automatically turn it on and off at certain times and on certain days of the week, so you can listen to, or record your favorite programs.

Timers can be used to start and stop playback (Play), or to start and stop radio or TV/LINE input recording (Rec) with an Onkyo cassette tape deck connected via .

Timers can be set for one-off use (Once), in which case the timer is reset once the task has been completed, for use on a certain day every week (Every), or for a range of days (e.g.,

Monday through Friday).

Timer Examples

The following examples highlight some of the ways in which you can use the timers.

Timer 1:

To wake up to your favorite radio station (preset

#1) every morning, set as follows:

PLAY ➔ FM 1 ➔ EVERY ➔ EVERY DAY ➔ ON 7:00 ➔ OFF

7:30

If you want a radio alarm only on weekdays, select “Days

Set” instead of “Everyday” and specify “MON–FRI.”

Timer 2:

To record a one-off radio program (preset #2) this

Sunday, set as follows:

REC

FM 2

ONCE

SUN

ON 21:00

OFF 22:00

(You need an Onkyo cassette tape deck to do the recording.)

Timer Overlap

If two or more timers are set to the same ON time, the timer with the lowest number has priority. For example, if Timer

#1 and Timer #2 are both set to an ON time of 7:00, Timer

#1 has priority and Timer #2 is ignored.

Timer 1:

07:00 - 13:00 (This timer has priority.)

Timer 2:

07:00 - 12:30

If the settings of two timers overlap, the earlier timer has priority.

Timer 1:

9:00 - 10:00

Timer 2:

8:00 - 10:00 (This timer has priority.)

Notes:

• The timers work only if the CR-L5 is in Standby mode. If the CR-L5 is on when a timer is supposed to start playback or recording, nothing will happen, so be sure to switch the CR-L5 to Standby mode.

• While a timed playback or recording task is in progress, you cannot set the clock or change the specified OFF time.

• While a timed recording task is in progress, the output of the CR-L5 is muted. To hear what’s being recorded, press the [MUTING] button to cancel the Mute function. Press it again to mute the CR-L5.

Troubleshooting—

Continued

Trouble

It takes a long time to locate certain tracks?

The clock is wrong?

The CR-L5 turns itself on unexpectedly?

The timer didn’t work?

No sound is output when a timed playback or recording task starts?

Possible Cause

The disc is dirty.

The disc is very scratched.

CT (Clock Time) information has been taken from a radio station in another time zone.

Remove the disc and clean it (page 6).

Buy a new disc.

Remedy

Set ACCUCLOCK to use a specific station

(page 17).

The ACCUCLOCK function is updating the clock.

The CR-L5 was already on at the specified

ON time.

This is not a malfunction. The CR-L5 will turn itself off automatically when the ACCU-

CLOCK function has updated the clock.

Set the CR-L5 to Standby (page 27). The CR-

L5 must be in Standby mode, otherwise the timed task will not work.

The specified ON time coincided, or overlapped the ON time of another timer.

While a timed recording task is in progress, the output of the CR-L5 is muted.

Check the timer settings and correct as necessary (page 28).

To hear what’s being recorded, press the

[MUTING] button to cancel the Mute function. Press it again to mute the CR-L5.

For timed playback, the volume is determined by the VOLUME control.

Set the volume to a suitable level (page 19).

Abnormal Behavior

The CR-L5 contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely even that this should happen, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it back in again.

Restoring the Default Settings

To reset the CR-L5 to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the STOP [ ] button, press the [STANDBY/

ON] button. Press the [STANDBY/ON] button again. “Initialized” appears on the display and the CR-L5 is reset to its factory defaults.
