extend it to its full length for best FM reception.
• Note the Serial Number on the back panel of your system and write this Number
in the space provided on the Warranty page of this manual.

Power Source
This product is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC only. Attempting to
operate this system from any other power source may cause damage to the system,
and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Note: You will note that this system is
equipped with a polarized AC power plug
having one blade wider than the other. This
is a safety feature. If this plug does not fit
into your existing AC outlet, do not try to
defeat this safety feature by filing the wide
blade to make it fit into your outlet. If this
plug will not fit into your outlet, you probably
have an out-dated non-polarized AC outlet.
You should have your outlet changed by a
qualified licensed electrician.

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.
IMPORTANT: Raising And Lowering The Lid
To open the lid, raise it as far as it will go until the lid support bracket ‘locks’in the
open position.
To close the lid, lift it upward slightly until the lid support bracket ‘unlocks’, and then
gently lower the lid.
TO AVOID DAMAGING THE CABINET OR THE LID, NEVER FORCE THE LID
CLOSED. ALWAYS RAISE THE LID TO RELEASE THE LID SUPPORT BRACKET.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Care of the Cabinet
You should care for the cabinet as you would care for any piece of fine
furniture. When the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft, non-abrasive
dust cloth. If the cabinet becomes smudged with fingerprints you may use
any good quality commercial dusting and polishing spray cleaner, however
avoid spraying the plastic or metal parts of this system. We recommend
that you spray the cleaner on your dust cloth, not directly on the cabinet, to
avoid getting any of the spray on the plastic or metal parts.
