Hold compact discs so that you do not
touch the playing surface.
If fingerprints or foreign matter become attached to the disc, lightly wipe the disc with a
soft cotton cloth (or similar) from the center of
the disc outwards in a radial manner.
Storage
Label side
When a disc is not to be played for a long period of time, remove it from the CD player and
store it in its case.
Playing side
Sticker, etc
Do not attach paper or tape to either
the playing side or the label side of compact discs.
The CD accessories (stabilizer, protection sheet, protection ring, etc.)
which are marketed for improving the sound quality or protecting discs
as well as the disc cleaner should not be used with this system because they may cause malfunction.
Discs which can be played with this unit
CD (12 cm, 8 cm), CDV (only the audio part)
Caution on disc used
Never play cracked or warped disc.
÷ With CD-G (CD Graphics) discs, this unit can play only the audio.
÷ Please do not use discs which are not round because they may
cause a malfunction.
Preparation section
Sticky paste
CD accessories
During playback, the disc rotates at high speed in the player.
Therefore, to avoid malfunction, never use a cracked or deformed disc
or a disc repaired with tape or adhesive agent.
Please do not use commercially available cleaning discs, they may
damage the internal mechanism.
Basic section
Do not use cleaning discs.
Notes on cassette tape
To store cassette tapes
After an important recording has been finished, break the safety tab,
to prevent the recorded contents from being erased or recorded on
accidentally.
Do not store the tapes in a place which is subject to direct sunlight, or
near equipment that generates heat. Keep the cassette tapes away
from any magnetic field.
N
S
For A side
Application section
Safety tab (accidental erasure prevention tab)
For B side
When there is slack in the tape
In such a case, insert a pencil into the reel hole and wind the reel hub
to remove the slack.
Notes
Apply tape only to the position where
the tab has been removed.
1. Longer tape than 110 minutes cassette tape
Since longer tape than 110 minutes cassette tape is very
thin, the tape could adhere to the pinch roller or be easily cut.
It is recommended that these tapes not be used with this
unit to prevent possible damage.
2. Endless tapes
Do not use an endless tape, as this could damage the mechanism of
the unit.

Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby 3 Stereo
Dolby Pro Logic is a specially encoded 2 channel surround format designed to provide theater-like surround sound from Dolby
Surround encoded sources (such as video and Laserdisc soft). This unit is equipped with a
ware marked
Dolby Surround decoder to let you enjoy the wide variety of
currently available Dolby Surround home video software.
Dolby 3 Stereo is available for systems that do not set surround
speakers. When in the Dolby 3 Stereo mode the surround information is redirected to the front left and right speakers. This
mode is designed for use with Dolby Surround program sources,
but can also improve sound field unity for programs that are
not Dolby Surround edcoded. Dialog positioning and sound image definition, however, may not be as accurate when used with
programs that are not Dolby Surround edcoded.

Recommended speaker installation
Hanging on a wall
It is recommended that the surround speakers are installed
straight to the left and right of the listening position or slightly
behind, at a height of about 1 meter higher than the listener’s
ears. Each surround speaker should be installed so that the
longer sides are horizontal.
The surround speakers can be hung on a wall.
When hanging the surround speakers, select a rigid and hard
place on the wall which can withstand the weight of the speakers.
How to use the speaker stabilizer (cushions)
When the surround speaker system installation is unstable due
to the floor condition, apply the provided stabilizer (cushions)
on four positions on the bottom of each speaker. (Except for
CRS-N551)
1. Attach the provided mounting hardware onto the rear panel of each
speaker using the provided screw. (Except for CRS-N551)
2. Install a screw, which is commercially available, with sufficient
strength on the wall. When screwing in, leave the head and upper
stem of the screw projected by 7 to 9 mm from the wall surface.
3. Mount each speaker by hooking up the hole of the speaker rear panel
on the screw attached to the wall.
4. Check that the speakers are firmly mounted.

The DSP mode creates the ambiance of a hall, disco or live house from any kind of program source. This mode is particularly effective
when listening to a stereo program source such as a CD, TV and FM broadcasting. Although the DSP mode can create a simulated stereo
