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 reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to consult the dealer or an experienced radio technician for help.
Cet appareil a été testé et jugé conforme aux limites des appareils numériques de Classe B, aux termes de la
Section 15 des Règlements FCC.
Ces limites ont pour but d’assurer une protection raisonnable contre les interférences parasites dans une
installation résidentielle.
Cet appareil engendre, utilise et peut émettre une énergie radioélectrique et, s’il n’est pas installé et utilisé en
stricte conformité avec ces instructions, il peut provoquer des interférences parasites sur les liaisons
radiophoniques. Ceci ne garantit par pour autant qu’une installation particulière ne provoquera aucune
interférence.
Si l’appareil engendre des interférences sur la réception des ondes radio, ce qui peut être vérifié en mettant
l’appareil hors tension puis sous tension, l’utilisateur est invité à consulter son revendeur ou un technicien
exprimenté en radio pour lui demander conseil.
Este equipo ha sido probado y se ha comprobado que cumple con los límites de un dispositivo digital de clase
B, según lo indicado en la Parte 15 de las Normas de FCC.
Estos límites se han establecido para ofrecer una protección razonable contra interferencias perjudiciales en
instalaciones residenciales.
Este equipo genera, emplea, y puede radiar energía de radiofrecuencia y, si no se instala y emplea de
acuerdo con las instrucciones, puede causar interferencias perjudiciales en las radiocomunicaciones. Sin
embargo, no se garantiza que las interferencias no ocurran en una instalación en particular.
Si este equipo causa interferencias perjudiciales en la recepción de radio, lo cual podrá determinarse
conectando y desconectando la alimentación del equipo, se aconseja al usuario que consulte al abastecedor
o que pida ayuda a un técnico en radio experimentado.

MP3/WMA
What is MP3?
MP3 is an audio compression method and
classified into audio layer 3 of MPEG standards.
This audio compression method has penetrated
into PC users and become a standard format.
This MP3 features the original audio data
compression to about 10 percent of its initial
size with a high sound quality. This means that
about 10 music CDs can be recorded on a CD-R
disc or CD-RW disc to allow a long listening time
without having to change CDs.
What is WMA?
WMA is the abbreviation of Windows Media
Audio, an audio file format developed by
Microsoft Corporation.
Notes:
• If you play a file with DRM (Digital Rights
Management) for WMA remaining ON, no audio
is output (The WMA indicator blinks).
• Windows Media™, and the Windows ® logo are
trademarks, or registered trademarks of
Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or
other countries.
