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 a 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AC outlet, you probably have an outdated nonpolarized outlet. You should have your outdated
outlet changed by a qualified, licensed
electrician. Do not file the wide blade on the
AC Outlet
plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into
your outlet. This defeats the safety feature and
AC Plug
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.

Listening To Your iPod®
IMPORTANT: To avoid any unwanted distortion when listening to your iPod®
through the speaker of this system we recommend that you shut off the
equalizer in the iPod® before inserting it in the docking station of this system.
To shut off the iPod® equalizer, go to the “Main Menu” in your iPod® , scroll to
the “Settings” menu, select the “EQ” setting and turn the EQ ‘Off’.
IMPORTANT iPod® ADAPTER INFORMATION
The docking station in this system follows the Apple “Universal Well” design. This
means that the adapter that was included with the 5G (5th generation) 30GB and
60GB iPod® with video capability, will fit into the docking well of this system.
This system is supplied with 6 different inserts that can be fitted in the docking
station. One insert serves only as a cover for the docking area to keep the connector
free from dust when no iPod® will be connected for long periods of time.
If you take your iPod® on a two-week vacation, place this “Dust cover” in the docking
area until you return and use the system again.
The other 5 inserts are designed for use with any 3rd generation (3G) or 4th
generation (4G) dockable iPod ® model, available as of January 2006, including
the iPod® mini and the iPod® nano.
1.) If you have not already done so, remove the “Dust cover” from the top cabinet.

3.) Select the proper adapter for your specific iPod® model from among the 5
adapters included (refer to the chart) and place the adapter into the docking
station as shown.

that was supplied with your iPod® into the docking station.

Headphone (PHONES) Jack
This unit includes a 3.5mm PHONES (headphone) jack on the back panel. This
allows you to connect a set of stereo headphones (not included) for private listening

the PHONES jack you will hear sound from both the left and right speakers in
your headphones, but the sound will be in mono, NOT stereo.
IMPORTANT!
When using stereo headphones always set the volume control to a low level
before you put on the headphones. Then put on the headphones and gradually
adjust the volume control to the desired level.
Remember that prolonged listening with headphones or ear buds at high volume
levels may eventually cause hearing loss.
