ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding
of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for
the grounding electrode. See Figure A.
16. Lightning – For added protection for this product during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused
for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the product due to lightning and power-line
surges.
17. Power Lines – An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna
system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them
might be fatal.
18. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result
in a risk of fire or electric shock.
10. Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided
for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the
product and to protect it from overheating, and these
openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings
should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed,
sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not
be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack
unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s
instructions have been adhered to.

EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING
AS PER NATIONAL
ELECTRICAL CODE
13. Power-Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched
by items placed upon or against them, paying particular
attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and
the point where they exit from the product.
19. Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind
into this product through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could
result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on the product.
20. Servicing – Do not attempt to service this product yourself
as opening or removing covers may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
21. Damage Requiring Service – Unplug this product from the
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
a) When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
b) If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the
product,
c) If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
d) If the product does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the operating instructions as an
improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the product to its normal
operation,
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way,
and
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance – this indicates a need for service.
22. Replacement Parts – When replacement parts are required,
be sure the service technician has used replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer or have the same
characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other
hazards.
23. Safety Check – Upon completion of any service or repairs
to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety
checks to determine that the product is in proper operating
condition.
24. Wall or Ceiling Mounting – The product should be mounted
to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the
manufacturer.

CASSETTE TAPES
2 Handling Precautions
• C-120 cassette tapes
C-120 cassette tapes are not recommended as
they use a very thin tape base which may become
tangled around the capstan or pinch roller.
• Tape Slack
Before putting a tape into the deck, take up any
slack with a pencil or your finger tip. This
precaution prevents the tape from becoming
entangled around the capstan or pinch roller.
A
PLAYBACK
2 Storage Precautions
• Do not store cassette tapes in a place where they
will be subject to:
• Extremely high temperature or excessive
moisture
• Excessive dust
• Direct sunlight
• Magnetic fields (near TV sets or speakers)
• To eliminate tape slack, store your cassettes in
cassette cases with hub stops
2 Accidental Erasure Prevention
• All cassettes have erasure prevention tabs for each
side. To protect valuable recordings from accidental
or inadvertent erasure, remove the tab for the
appropriate side with a screwdriver or another tool.
• To record on a tape whose erasure prevention tabs

2 MUSIC SEARCH SYSTEM
The music search system detects blank sections
(lasting for at least 4 seconds) between selections in
order to locate the beginning of selections in the
forward or reverse direction.
1. To advance from the current selection to the
beginning of the next selection (CUE) :
Press the Play ( 1 ) button simultaneously with
the Fast Forward ( 7 ) button. Press the Play
( 0 ) button simultaneously with the Rewind
( 6 ) button.
The deck will skip the rest of the current selection
and automatically resume play from the beginning
of the next selection.
2. To repeat playback from the beginning of the
current selection (REVIEW) :
Press the Play ( 1 ) button simultaneously with
the Rewind ( 6 ) button. Press the Play ( 0 )
button simultaneously with the Fast Forward
( 7 ) button.
The deck will rewind the tape to the beginning of
the current selection and automatically resume
play from that point.
This is very convenient for repeating playback of
the current selection.
Notes on Music Search Operation :
The search functions operates by detecting
comparatively long, blank sections approximately 4 to
5 seconds long, in between recorded selections.
Therefore, the system may not operate normally in
the following cases:
• Recordings with discontinuous speech or
conversation.
• Recordings with long periods of pianissimo (softly
played music).
• Blank sections with a high level of noise.
• Blank sections shorter than 4 seconds.
• If noise-emitting appliances, such as electric razors,
drills, refrigerators, etc., are operated nearby.
• REVIEW close to the beginning of the program or
CUE close to the ending.
2 POWER ON PLAYBACK

level is set too low, soft passages will be marked by
residual noise. A proper recording level is the most
important factor for making well balanced recordings.
Guideline for maximum recording level
Type I (Normal)
+3 dB level on peaks
Type II (CrO2)
+3 dB level on peaks
Type IV (Metal)
+3 dB level on peaks

ENGLISH
DOLBY B AND C NOISE REDUCTION SYSTEM
2 The Dolby noise reduction system substantially
reduces the tape background noise (hiss) inherent
in the cassette medium. Dolby B NR is most
widely in use. However Dolby C NR is a much
more recent development and represents
significant improvements over Dolby B NR.
2 Tape background noise consists primarily of high
frequency information, which is particularly
annoying during soft passages. The Dolby NR
system increases the level of low volume midand high-frequency signals during recording and
reduces the level of these signals by an identical
amount during playback. As a result, the playback
signal is identical to the original source, but the
level of background noise generated by the tape is
greatly reduced.
2 The operating principle of Dolby C NR is similar to
that of Dolby B NR except for the encoding
/decoding response curves. The noise reduction
effect obtained with Dolby C NR is up to 20 dB,
compared to 10 dB with Dolby B NR. In addition,
Dolby C NR uses an anti-saturation network and
spectral skewing circuitry for a significant
improvement in the dynamic range of the mid- to
high-frequencies.
DOLBY HX-PRO HEADROOM EXTENSION SYSTEM
This deck is equipped with the Dolby HX-PRO
headroom extension system. Since the system
functions automatically during recording, no switching
operation or adjustment is required. The system is
effective with any type of Normal, CrO2 and Metal
tape.
The Dolby HX-PRO headroom extension system
functions during recording to raise the saturation level
in the treble range. Therefore, most of the treble
range components distorted or lost during recording
on conventional cassette decks are more faithfully
recorded on the new DENON cassette deck.
12
Features of the Dolby HX-PRO Headroom
Extension System
(1) Performance of Normal and CrO2 tapes can be
improved to very close of that offered by Metal
tape.
(2) The dynamics in the treble range are improved
significantly.
(3) Since no decoding is necessary during playback,
the improved sound can be enjoyed on any type of
tape deck, including portable players and car audio
systems.
(4) The system functions whether the Dolby B/C NR
system is engaged or not.
MAINTENANCE
2 Head cleaning
After long usage, tape coating or dust may adhere
to the heads, causing deterioration of sound.
Therefore, the parts depicted in the illustration
should be cleaned regularly. Use a cotton swab
moistened with a tape head cleaning solution
(such as alcohol).
NOTES :
1. Some cleaning cassettes on the market have a
strong abrasive effects and may scratch the
heads. Always use cotton swabs instead of
cleaning cassettes.
2. Since the use of metal tape is apt to collect
more dust on the heads, the heads should be
cleaned more often to enjoy the best possible
sound.
2 Cleaning the Pinch Rollers and Capstans
If the pinch rollers or capstans accumulate dust,
tape transport may become unstable, as a result
from slippage, during recording or playback. The
tape can also be damaged if it gets entangled in
the capstan.
Clean these parts with a cotton swab or a soft
cloth moistened with a tape head cleaning solution
(such as alcohol).
2 Demagnetizing the Heads
The heads will become magnetized after long
usage or if strongly magnetized objects are
brought near them. The result is a generation of
noise, loss of the high frequency range, and in
extreme cases erasure of treble components on
pre-recorded tapes in combination with added
noise.
Thus, the heads should be demagnetized at regular
intervals. (Head demagnetizers are separately
available from your dealer.)
2 How to Demagnetize the Tape Heads
1. Turn off the power.
2. Turn on the demagnetizer while it is at least 30
cm away from the heads. Bring the demagnetizer
near the heads and slowly move it in small
circles four or five times in front of each head,
making sure you do not touch them.
3. Slowly move the demagnetizer away and turn
it off when it is at least 30 cm away from the
heads.
