PREPARATION FOR USE
UNPACKING
• Remove the main unit and the speakers from the carton and remove all packing
materials from the components.
• Remove any descriptive labels from the fronts of the main unit and speakers.
• Remove any small strips of tape that may have been used to secure the cassette
door or CD drawer in transit.
PLACEMENT
• Place the unit on a stable, level table, shelf or stand convenient to an AC
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.
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.

SPEAKER CONNECTION
The speaker cables and the speaker terminals on the back of the main unit are
color coded for your convenience. Connect the cables from the left speaker to the
“LEFT” terminals, and the cables from the right speaker to the “RIGHT” terminals.
To connect the speaker cable to the terminal depress the plastic tab below the
terminal, insert the bare wire at the end of the cable into the terminal opening, and
release the plastic tab to lock the wire in place.

CONNECTING THE AC POWER CORD
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.

MAKING A TAPE RECORDING
This cassette recorder features an Automatic Recording Volume Level Control
System that prevents overloaded or distorted recordings. You can change the
volume level as often as you like during the recording process. It will not have any
effect on the volume level of the recording itself.
1.) Insert a good quality blank tape into the slots on the door with the exposed
tape facing down and the full reel on the left side. Close the door.
2.) Select the source you wish to record – TUNER or CD , and operate that source
as you normally would.
3.) Press the RECORD key on to begin recording.
STEREO HEADPHONE JACK
Connect an optional set of stereo headphones in PHONES jack on front panel for
private listening without disturbing others. Before putting the headphones on your
head reduce the volume to a low level. Then put the headphones on and gradually
increase the volume to a comfortable listening 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.

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).

• 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.
