PREPARATION FOR USE
Unpacking and Set-up
• The display carton contains the main unit, the remote control handset, six (6)
different iPod® adapters, and the external FM wire antenna (attached to the
bottom of the main unit). Remove all of the components from the carton and
make sure that nothing is accidentally discarded with the packing materials.
We recommend that, if possible, you save the carton and packing materials in
the event that your unit ever needs to be returned for service. Using the original
carton and packing materials is the only way to prevent your unit from damage
during shipment.
• Remove all packing materials from the main unit and the accessories.
• Remove any descriptive labels from the front or top panels of your unit. Do not
remove any labels from the back or bottom panels.
• Remove any small strips of tape that may have been used to secure the CD
door and the secondary control cover door during shipment.
• Press on the right front corner of the CD door to release the lock and open the
door. Remove the dummy CD transit protection card from the CD mechanism
and discard it.
• Remove the “paper dummy iPod® ” from the docking area and discard it. That
is for store display purpose only.
• Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length.
• Place the main unit on a stable, level surface such as a table, stand, or shelf,
convenient to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of

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have an outdated non-polarized outlet.
You should have your outdated outlet
c hanged by a qualified, lic ens ed
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

Installing The Back Up Batteries
This system includes a battery back up circuit that will maintain the clock, calendar,
and alarm time settings and the preset tuner memories in the event of a temporary
power interruption. The battery back up circuit requires 2 “AAA” or UM-4 batteries,
not included. We recommend that you install a well-known brand of alkaline batteries
for longest life and best performance. While it is not absolutely necessary to install
the back up batteries it is strongly recommended. If you do not install the back up
batteries it will be necessary to reset the clock, the alarm settings and the preset
tuner memories each time the system is unplugged, or whenever you have an
unexpected power interruption in your home.
NOTE: The battery compartment is located on the bottom of the cabinet. Before
turning the unit upside down to install the back up batteries we suggest that
you place a towel or similar padding under the unit to avoid scratching the
finish on the top panel when the unit is upside down.
With the unit turned upside down on a soft
padded surface, open the battery compartment
by pressing the battery cover locking tab in
the direction of the arrow and lifting the battery
compartment cover upward.
Install 2 “AAA” batteries in the battery
compartment according to the polarity
markings engraved in the compartment.
If the batteries are inserted incorrectly the
battery back up system cannot function.
After installing the batteries replace the battery compartment cover and make
sure that it is firmly locked in place.

FM Antenna (On Bottom Panel)
The FM antenna wire is attached to a screw terminal on the bottom cabinet. Unwind
the antenna wire completely and extend it to its full length before returning the
cabinet to its upright position.
It may be necessary to adjust the direction of the FM antenna wire until you find
the position that provides the best reception.

Reset Button (On Bottom Panel)
If this system is subjected to a sudden power surge, or excessive static electricity,
the internal computer will shut down temporarily to prevent any permanent damage
to the system. If you find that the system does not respond when you operate the
controls on the top panel or the remote handset, you have probably experienced a
sudden power surge that caused the internal computer to shut down.
To correct this problem and reset the internal computer, first disconnect the AC
power cord for 60 seconds and then plug it in again.
If this still does not correct the problem, use the point of a ballpoint pen, a toothpick,
a straightened paper clip, or similar object to press the RESET button, located in a
small hole near the battery compartment door.
Pressing the RESET button will reset the system and clear the system memory.
The system should then operate normally again, however it will be necessary to
reset the clock, the alarm setting, and re-enter all of your preset stations in the
tuner memory after pressing the RESET button.

Remote Control
The remote control supplied with this system allows you to operate all of the features
and functions found on the main unit control panel. The remote receiver is located
on the left side of the front panel display. To operate the remote control, aim the
handset at the receiver on the front panel and press the appropriate button on the
remote handset.
The effective operating distance of the remote control is approximately 15 feet
from the remote receiver on the front panel.
IMPORTANT! Please note that the iPod ® Shuffle has no interface to accept
commands from a remote control. The remote control of this system will not
operate an iPod ® Shuffle. You must use the controls on the Shuffle itself to
operate an iPod® Shuffle.
Remote Control Battery
The remote control operates on one 3V lithium ‘button’battery, Type CR2032 or
equivalent. The battery was installed in the remote when you purchased this system.
To preserve the life of the battery a small clear plastic
spacer tab is installed between the battery and the
battery terminal. This tab must be removed before
the remote control can be used.
To remove the tab simply pull it out of the battery
compartment, as shown, and discard it.

The original battery should be able to power the remote control for 12 to 18 months
or even longer, depending on the frequency of use. When the operation of the
remote becomes intermittent or fails completely you should replace the battery as
soon as possible.
To replace the battery, put the remote control face down and press the battery
holder locking tab in the direction of the arrow and slide the battery holder out of
the remote control.
Install a fresh CR2032 battery in the holder as shown and slide the holder back in
to the remote control.
CR2032
IMPORTANT: Be sure to dispose of the old battery properly. Do not leave it
around where a young child or a pet might play with or swallow it. If the battery
is swallowed, contact a physician immediately. Do not dispose of the old battery
in a fire. The battery could leak or explode if incinerated.
CAUTION
DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED.
REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE.

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.
iPod ® Docking Cover
If no iPod® will be connected to the system for a long period, place the iPod®
docking cover insert over the iPod® docking well to prevent excess dust from settling
on the connector.
Resetting the System After a Power Surge
If the system locks up and does not respond when you operate any of the controls
you may have experienced a sudden power surge that triggered the overload
protection circuit. Refer to the “Reset Button” instructions on page 8.
