PREPARATION FOR USE
UNPACKING AND SET UP
• This system consists of the following components: Tuner/CD Player unit with
built in subwoofer, a single Thinovation™ Flat Speaker Panel, a full-function
Remote Control and a detachable AC power cord.
Carefully remove all the components from the display carton and verify that
you have all the necessary components before you dispose of the display
carton.
• Remove all packing materials from the individual components. Remove any
descriptive labels that may be attached to the front panel of the main unit. Do
not remove any labels or stickers on the back panels of the main unit or the
speakers.
• Place all the components in the desired location. This system is designed to
be used on level, stable, flat surface such as a table, desk, shelf, or stand,
convenient to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of
excess heat, dust, moisture, or vibration.
• Unwind the lead wire FM antenna on the back of the Tuner/CD Player unit and
extend it to its full length.
• The main unit is shipped with a “dummy CD” display card in the CD player.
This “dummy CD” card must be removed before you can use the CD player.

FLAT PANEL SPEAKER CONNECTION
IMPORTANT: CONNECT THE SPEAKER PANEL TO THE MAIN UNIT
BEFORE YOU CONNECT THE AC POWER CORD TO THE AC OUTLET.
The Thinovation™ Speaker Panel not only contains the left and right wide range
speakers, it also serves as the CD compartment cover. To install the Thinovation™
Speaker Panel on the main unit simply slide the Thinovation™ Speaker Panel
down ward on the speaker mounting bracket as shown so that the two plugs on
the top of the mounting bracket fit into the two jacks on the bottom of the speaker
panel. You may tilt the mounting bracket forward to make this operation easier if
necessary.
After the panel is mounted on the bracket you should lock the panel in place by
sliding the two locking switches on the back of the panel ‘inward’so they fit into the
corresponding ‘notches’on the sides of the mounting bracket.

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.
Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length. Connect the small female
type plug on one end of the cord to the AC jack on the back panel. The plug can
only be inserted in the jack one way. If the plug does not seem to fit into the jack
correctly, turn the plug over and try again. The plug must be fully inserted into the
jack or the system will not operate.
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.

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.

performance. When the remote operation becomes intermittent replace both
batteries at the same time. Do not mix different types of batteries, such as
alkaline and carbon zinc batteries.
BATTERY PRECAUTIONS
Follow these precautions when using batteries in this device:
1. Use only the size and type of batteries specified.
2. Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery
compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.
3. Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-Zinc) or old batteries
with fresh ones.
4. If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent
damage or injury from possible battery leakage.
5. Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture.
(Follow battery manufacturer’s directions.)

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.
