PREPARATION FOR USE
UNPACKING AND SET-UP
• Carefully remove the unit from the carton and remove all packing material from the unit.
• Remove any labels or stickers which may be on the front or top of the set, but do not remove any
labels from the back or bottom.
• We suggest that you retain the original carton and packing materials in case it ever becomes
necessary to return your unit for service. This is the only sure way to protect the unit from damage
in transit.
• If you do dispose of the carton and packing materials, please do so properly.
SPEAKER CONNECTION
The color-coded speaker cables must be connected to the
terminals on the back of the speaker cabinet and the back
of the main unit. Make both connections before you plug in
the unit.
To insert wires into the terminals on the back of the main
unit:
1.
Locate the bare ends of the wires and separate the
black wire from the red.
2.
Lightly flip open the tab of the red (+) terminal, insert
the bare end of the red wire and snap the tab closed.
3.
Repeat for the black (-) terminal and wire.
To insert wires into the terminals on the back of the
speaker:
1.
Locate the bare ends of the wires and separate the
black wire from the red.
2.
Press and hold down on the tab to open the red
terminal, then insert the red (+) wire.
3.
Release to lock wire in terminal.
4.
Use the same procedure to insert black (-) wire into
black terminal.
WARNING: Be sure to follow these instructions carefully. The system can be damaged if
speakers are improperly connected.
3
POSITIONING THE SPEAKERS
The speakers may be positioned next to the main unit or separated as far as the wires will allow.
We recommend that you leave a gap of approximately 1/2” between the speakers and the main unit
so that vibration from the speaker does not cause the CD player to skip.
ANTENNA CONNECTION
The AM and FM antennas connect to the AM and FM terminals on the system’s back panel. They
must be hooked up in order to receive clear reception.
AM LOOP ANTENNA AND FM T-TYPE ANTENNA
Your system comes with an AM loop antenna with black wires and an FM T-type dipole antenna.
Connect the antennae to their respective terminals on the back of the unit the same way as the wire
connections from the speakers to the unit. Locate the bare ends of the wires, open the tab of the
terminal, insert the bare end of the wire and close the tab. Repeat for the other wires. After connecting
the antennas, extend them to their full length and adjust their positioning for better radio reception.

INSTALLING THE REMOTE CONTROL BATTERIES
1.
2.
3.
Open the battery compartment cover of the remote control unit by sliding the cover downward,
as shown.
Insert two (2) ‘AA’ sized batteries, not included, into the battery compartment, following the
diagram inside the compartment. If the batteries are inserted incorrectly, the remote control
will not work.
Replace the battery compartment cover.
Note: Always use alkaline batteries for longest life and best performance.
CONNECTING THE POWER CORD
After you have connected the speakers, the AM and FM antennas and any external audio sources,
you are now ready to connect the unit to your AC power supply.
Unwind the AC cord to its full length and insert the smaller end into the AC socket on the back panel
of the main unit. Note that the AC socket and the small end of the AC cord have one rounded end
and one flat end. The cord can only fit into the AC socket one way. Do not try to force the plug into
the AC socket. If it does not enter the socket easily, turn the plug over and reinsert. Make sure that
the plug is inserted into the socket as far as it will go. A loose connection can result in intermittent
operation or a loss of power to the system.
Connect the AC plug to your 120V AC 60HZ polarized outlet. This unit has a polarized AC plug with
one blade wider than the other. This a safety feature for your protection. If the plug will not fit into
your outlet, do not try to defeat this safety feature by filing the wider blade to make it fit into your
outlet. If this plug does not fit your outlet, you probably have an outdated, non-polarized AC outlet.
You should have your outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician.

AUTO PRESET TUNING
GENERAL COMMENTS ABOUT THE AUTO PRESET FEATURE
If you live in a major metropolitan area or in close proximity to a large city with many AM and FM
stations available, it is not recommended to use the Auto/Preset feature. This feature will cause the
Tuner to memorize the first 10 FM and AM stations it encounters and these will probably not be the
stations that you want to store in the Tuner memory.
However, if you live in a rural area with fewer AM and FM stations available, you can use the auto
preset feature to automatically enter 10 AM and 10 FM stations into the Tuner memory. Again, the
Tuner will memorize the first 10 FM and AM stations that are receivable in your area.
USING THE AUTO PRESET FEATURE
1. Press the Tuner/Band button on the main unit or remote control to select the tuner function,
Press again to change the Band if necessary.
2. Press the Auto Preset button on the remote control handset for at least two seconds. The Tuner
will begin searching the band for strong signals and it will automatically enter into the memories
the first 10 strong signals it encounters.
3. After the Tuner stops scanning, press the Tuner Band button once more to change bands and
then depress the Auto Preset button again for at least two seconds to automatically preset 10
stations on the remaining band.
SELECTING PRESET STATIONS
Press the appropriate number key on the remote control handset to select the desired preset Memory
number. Remember that to select preset memories numbered 10 through 20, you must press three
keys, the “10+” key, and the two keys which correspond to the desired track number.
For example: To select track number 15, press the “10+”, “1” and “5” keys in order.

time you press the Sleep button, the amount of sleep time will increase by 10 minutes, up to a
maximum of 2 hours (120 minutes). If the Sleep button is pushed again while 120 minutes
appears on the display, it will revert back to 10 minutes.
4. After 5 seconds, the Sleep time indication disappears and the display returns to either radio
frequency or CD Track/Time display. However, the SLEEP indicator remains in the display to
confirm that the unit is in the Sleep/Timer mode.
5. After the Sleep Timer counts down to zero, the unit shuts off automatically and returns to the
Standby mode.

SYSTEM LOCK-UP / RESETTING THE SYSTEM COMPUTER
If the built in system computer is subjected to a sudden surge or 'spike' in the AC power supply the
computer may 'lock-up' and the unit will not respond to commands from any of the front panel
controls or the remote controller. If such a 'lock-up' occurs you must use the RESET button, located
on the inside bottom of the unit, to unlock the system computer.
Refer to the following illustration.
1.) Leave the unit connected to the AC outlet. The system computer cannot be reset if the AC
power cord is disconnected.
2.) If the power is 'On', press the POWER button to return the unit to the 'Standby' mode. The main

4.) Use a wooden or plastic toothpick, or similar device (Do Not Use Any Metal Object) to press the
RESET button which is located inside the cabinet, as shown in the illustration.
Note: This procedure will clear the system computer lock-up, but it will also clear the preset tuner
memories, any CD program settings, clock and timer settings. It will be necessary to reprogram
the tuner memories, reset the clock, and reset the timer after you clear the system computer.
