Stereo Headphone Jack
This system includes a stereo PHONES jack on the back panel of the main unit.
You may connect a set of stereo headphones, not included, to this jack for private
listening without disturbing others.
The main speakers are automatically shut off when headphones are connected to
the PHONES jack. Make sure that the plug from your headphones is fully inserted
into the headphone jack. If the plug is not fully inserted the sound may be intermittent,
or you may only hear sound from one side of the headphones.
IMPORTANT: To prevent hearing damage always set the volume control to a
low level before you connect the headphones. Then connect the headphones,
put them on, and very gradually increase the volume to a comfortable listening
level. Remember that CDs may contain both very soft and very loud passages.
Adjust the volume to a comfortable level using a louder passage, so that you
always know what the maximum level will be.
Placement Of The System
The system should be placed on a stable, level surface such as a table, shelf, or
stand, convenient to a 120V 60Hz AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from
sources of excess heat, dust, moisture, or vibration.
The speakers may be separated from the main as far the wires allow for maximum
stereo separation, or the may be placed to the immediate left and right of the main
unit. However to avoid interfering with the operation of the CD door the speakers
should not be placed directly against the main unit. Always leave a gap of at least
1/2 inch between the speakers and the main unit.

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have outdated non-polarized outlet. You
should have your outdated outlet
changed by a qualified, licens 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

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.

Playing Compact Discs
IMPORTANT:
This CD player can play normal CDs, Recordable CDs (CD-R), ReWritable
CDs (CD-RW), as well as CDs containing compressed MP3 or WMA audio
files. However the playability of CD-R/RW, MP3 CDs, and WMA CDs may be
affected by the type of software that was used in ‘ripping’the tracks from the
original discs and ‘burning’ the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may
also be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for
recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed. This is not an indication
of any problems with your player.
Normal Playback
1.) Press the
STANDBY button to turn the system ‘On’.
2.) Press the OP/CL or OPEN/CLOSE button to open the CD door. If you have
not already done so, remove the 3 “dummy CD” transit protection cards and
discard them. You cannot play your own CDs unless these cards are removed.
3.) Load 1, 2, or 3 of your own CDs into the player with the printed ‘labels’facing
you.
Gently press downward on each CD near the center hole to insure that the
discs are properly ‘seated’on the spindles.

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.
