FCC INFORMATION
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 or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that

Power Source
This system is designed to operate on 120V AC 60Hz house current only.
Connecting this system to any other power source may cause damage to the
system and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Note: The system has polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow
blade. The plug will only fit into matching polarized AC outlets.
This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock. If the plug will not
fit in your AC outlets, you probably have outdated non-polarized outlet. You should
have your outdated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do not file
the wide blade on the plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into your outlet.
This defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.

Placement Of The System
The system should be placed on a stable, level surface such as a table, shelf, or
stand, convenient to a 120V 60Hz AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from
sources of excess heat, dust, moisture, or vibration.
The speakers may be separated from the main as far the wires allow for maximum
stereo separation, or the may be placed to the immediate left and right of the main
unit.
Protect Your Furniture
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Compact Disc Care
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
• Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s recorded surface
with a soft cloth.Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no grooves
to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should
remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of
the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on
reproduction quality.
• Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
• Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
Care Of The Cabinet
If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
Caution
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
