About Discs
•Before turning the power switch on
Check once again that all connections are correct and that there are
no problems with the connection cables.
•Moving the unit
First eject the disc, turn off the power, then unplug the power cord
from the power outlet.
Next, disconnect the connection cables to other system units before
moving the unit.
•Note that the illustrations in these instructions may differ from the
actual unit for explanation purposes.
NOTE
This product uses a semiconductor laser. To ensure stable operation, it
is recommended to use the product indoors at a temperature of 5 °C
(41 °F) ~ 35 °C (95 °F).

Troubleshooting
•About condensation
If there is a major difference in temperature between the inside of
the unit and the surroundings, condensation (dew) may form on
the operating parts inside the unit, causing the unit not to operate
properly.
If this happens, let the unit sit for an hour or two with the power
turned off and wait until there is little difference in temperature
before using the unit.
qSuper Audio CDs
Operations
•Sufficiently ventilate the place of installation
If the unit is left in a room full of the smoke from cigarettes, etc., for
long periods of time, the surface of the optical pickup could get dirty,
in which case it will not be able to read the signals properly.
Discs that can be Played
Connections
•Power is supplied to some of the circuitry even when the unit is
set to the standby mode. When traveling or leaving home for long
periods of time, be sure to unplug the Power cord from the power
outlet.
Discs marked with the logotype below can be played in this unit.
Discs with special shapes (heart-shaped discs, octagonal discs,
etc.) cannot be played. Do not attempt to play them, as doing so
can damage the product.

Holding Discs
Cautions on Loading Discs
Do not touch the signal surface.
Connections
•Only load one disc at a time. Loading two or more discs can damage
the unit or scratch the discs.
•Do not use cracked or warped discs or discs that have been repaired
with adhesive, etc.
•Do not use discs on which the sticky part of cellophane tape or labels
is exposed or on which there are traces of where labels have been
removed. Such discs can get caught inside the player and damage
it.
Cleaning Discs
•If there are fingerprints or dirt on discs, wipe them off before using
the disc. Fingerprints and dirt can impair sound quality and cause
interruptions in playback.
•Use a commercially available disc cleaning set or a soft cloth to clean
discs.
Loading Discs
Operations
•Set the disc with the labeled side facing up.
•Make sure the disc tray is fully open when inserting the disc.
•Place the discs flatly, 12 cm discs in the outer tray guide (Figure 1),
8 cm discs in the inner tray guide (Figure 2).

•Water droplets may form on discs if they are moved suddenly from a
cold place (outdoors for example) to a warm place, but do not try to
dry them off using a hairdryer, etc.
Gently wipe the disc from the
inside towards the outside.
Do not wipe with a circular
motion.
NOTE
Do not use record spray, antistatic agents, or benzene, thinner or
other solvents.
Cautions on Storing Discs
•Place 8 cm discs in the inner tray guide without using an adapter.
•“00:00” is displayed if a disc that cannot be played is loaded.
