outlet.
• The unit should not be exposed to direct sunlight or sources of excess heat,
moisture, dust, vibration, or humidity.
• The speakers may be positioned along side the main unit, or separated as far
as the cords will allow for maximum stereo separation. You should maintain a
gap of at least one inch between the main unit and the speakers to prevent any
skipping of the CD player when the unit operated at high volume.
SPEAKER CONNECTION

CONNECTING THE AC POWER CORD
IMPORTANT !!
BEFORE CONNECTING THE AC POWER CORD MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE
REMOVED THE CD TRANSIT SCREW FROM THE BACK PANEL OF THE MAIN
UNIT. REFER TO THE INSTRUCTIONS ON PAGE 4.
After connecting the speakers unwind the AC power cord fully and connect it to
any convenient household AC outlet. This system is designed to operate on 120V
60Hz AC power only. Connecting this system to any other power supply may cause
damage to the unit which is not covered by your warranty.
This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade.This
plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety feature to
reduce the possibility of electric shock. If this plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you
probably have an outdated non-polarized outlet. You should have your outdated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.

control to increase or decrease the volume level. The volume level indicator appears
in the display while the volume is being adjusted. The range is from “00” (minimum)
to “63” (maximum). The system memory remembers the volume level when the
power is shut off and automatically returns to the same level when the power is
switched on again.
EQUALIZER
The electronic equalizer allows you to adjust the tone settings for the most popular
types of music such as POP, ROCK, JAZZ, or CLASSIC. Or you may shut the
equalizer off and listen to your music with the tone controls in their “flat” settings
(0db bass and 0db treble).
Press the EQ button on the front panel or on the remote control repeatedly to
select the desired EQ setting. The EQ button on the front panel lights when the EQ
is ‘On’and the desired setting appears in the display. If the EQ button is not lighted
and no indicator appears in the display the equalizer is in the “flat” (Off) setting.
The system memory remembers the EQ setting when the power is shut ‘Off’and
automatically returns to the same setting when the power is switched ‘On’again.
BASS BOOST
Press the BBS (Bass Boost) button on the front panel or on the remote control to
enhance the bass response. The BBS button on the front panel lights when Bass
Boost is ‘On’and the “BBS” indicator appears in the display.
Use Bass Boost when you are listening at low volume levels where the bass tends
to disappear. If you are listening to music with heavy bass at high volume with the
EQ set to “ROCK” and the BBS ‘On’, you may experience some distortion. If this
occurs, switch the Bass Boost ‘Off’, switch the EQ ‘off’, or reduce the volume level.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The record key cannot be depressed if the
erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on side A of a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.
A
A
COVER OPENING WITH TAPE
IN ORDER TO RECORD AGAIN.
TAB FOR SIDE A.
If later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the record key to function again.
CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming — Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) Tape tangling — Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions
should be observed:
• Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible
through the cassette center window (see Fig. 1).
Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or hexagonal
barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette
into the machine (see Fig. 2).
30
MS9600_ib_0313.p65
30
25/3/2002, 15:23
•
If the cassette feels “tight” while performing operation
shown (see Fig. 2), the tape may be jamming due to
“ridges” formed in the winding of the tape.
(visible through the center window). These may be
removed, in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette
from one end to the other and back again.
•
Use only well-known brands of tape. Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch
the tape surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes
particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these
parts and impair performance. Switch off the power, press the STOP/EJECT key to
open the cassette door, and press the PLAY key. Clean the tape heads, pinch roller
and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or special
tape head cleaner.

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 CABINETS
• If the cabinets become dusty wipe them with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use
any wax or polish sprays on the cabinets.
• If the front panel becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never
use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mar the finish of your unit.
CAUTION:
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
