Before Use
Choose unit installation location carefully .Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat .
Also avoid locations subject to vibrations and excessive dust , cold or moisture . Keep away from sources that hum , such
as transformers or motors .
Do not open the cabinet as this might result in damage to the circuitry or electrical shock . If a foreign object should get into
the set , contact your dealer .
Be sure not to handle discs with dirty fingers . Never insert a disc that has a crack on the surface .
When removing the power plug from the wall outlet , always pull directly on the plug , never yank the cord .

Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference .
Beware of Condensation
When the player (or a compact disc) is moved from a cold to a warm place or is used after a sudden temperature change ,
there is the danger of condensation . Water vapor in the air could condense on the mechanism or the laser pickup . If droplets
of water form on these parts , correct playback will be impossible because the laser cannot read the information from the
disc correctly . To prevent this , if you are going to use the player in a condition where condensation could occur , you should
leave the player for 1 or 2 hours after plugging it into an AC outlet depending on the amount of condensation . If this is done ,
the player will stabilize at the temperature of its surroundings .
