PREPARATION FOR USE
Unpacking And Set Up
• Remove the main unit, the speakers, and the remote control unit from the
display carton. Remove all packing materials from the components. We
recommend that you save the original carton and packing material if possible,
in the event that your system even needs to be returned for service. Using the
original carton and packing materials is the only way to protect your system
from shipping damage.
• Press on the CD door in the area marked OPEN/CLOSE to open the door.
Remove the “dummy CD” transit protection card from the CD player and discard
it.
• Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length.
• Unwind the external FM wire antenna and extend it to its full length.
• Remove the twist-ties from the speaker wires.
Placement of the System
The system should be placed on a stable, level surface such as a table, desk, or
shelf, convenient to an AC outlet, away from direct sunlight, and sources of excess
heat, dust, moisture, humidity, vibration, or strong magnetic fields.
The speakers may be placed next to the main unit or as far apart as the speaker
wires allow. We recommend that you leave a gap of approximately 1/2 inch between
the main unit and the speakers so that any vibration from the speakers will not
interfere with the CD player in the main unit.

Remote Control Battery
The remote control operates on one 3-volt lithium battery, type CR2025 or
equivalent, included.
To insure that the battery is fresh the first time you use your system we have
placed plastic spacer between the battery and the battery terminal. You must remove
this spacer before using the remote for the first time.
To remove the spacer, pull on the small tab that is
extending outside the battery compartment as shown.
Remote Control Operation
The main functions of this system can be operated by pressing the controls on the
front panel of the main unit, or by pressing the corresponding buttons on the remote
control.
You should point the remote control at the remote sensor on the front panel. The
effective operating range of the remote control is approximately 15 feet.
Please note that bright sunlight can interfere with the operation of the remote
control. If the remote operation is unsatisfactory, try darkening the room before
changing the remote battery. The battery should last at least 12 months or longer
under normal operating conditions.

28/4/2006, 11:39
Changing The Lithium Battery
When the operation of the remote becomes intermittent or the main unit no longer
responds to the remote commands, it is probably time to change the remote battery.
Open the battery compartment by squeezing the battery compartment locking tab
as shown and slide the battery holder out of the battery compartment.
Remove the exhausted battery and install a fresh CR2025 battery in the battery
holder with the “ + ” facing up as shown, then slide the battery holder back into the
battery compartment.

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 outlet, you probably have an 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.

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.

Auto Preset Function
This model includes an Auto-Preset feature which you can use to automatically
enter 10 strong FM and AM stations in the tuner preset memory.
NOTE: This feature is useful if you live in a rural area with a limited number
of stations. However if you live in a major metropolitan area with many
strong stations, do not use the Auto-Preset feature. It will memorize the
first 10 strong stations it encounters and these will probably not be the
same 10 stations that you would select if you were memorizing stations
manually.

desired band.
Depress and hold the “PROGRAM/MEM./CLK. ADJ” button until the Tuner display
begins to move, then release the button.
The Tuner will start searching up the band and it will automatically enter the first 10
strong stations on the selected band in the 10 preset memories. The display will
indicate which station is being entered in each of the 10 memories.
After the Auto-Preset feature memorizes 10 stations, the tuner returns to preset
memory number 1.
Recalling Preset Stations

2.) Press the PROGRAM/MEM./CLK. ADJ button and then press the P-MODE/
MEM-UP button on the front panel or MEMORY
/
buttons on the remote
control to display the channel number you wish to change.
3.) Press the PROGRAM/MEM./CLK. ADJ button again to enter the new station
in the memory. The new station is memorized and the previous station is deleted

Stereo Headphone Jack
You may connect stereo headphones (not included) to the PHONES jack on the
front panel of this system for private listening without disturbing others. When
headphones are connected the speakers are automatically shut off.
IMPORTANT: Before you connect your headphones, set the VOLUME control
of this system to a low level. Then connect your headphones, put them on and

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 or polish sprays on the cabinet.
• If the front panel becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never
use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mar the finish of your unit.
Caution
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
Lithium Battery Precautions
• Dispose of the old battery properly. Do not leave it lying around where a
young child or pet could play with, or swallow it. If the battery is swallowed,
contact a physician immediately.
• Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not attempt to recharge it or
disassemble it. Do not dispose of the old battery in a fire.
