On placement
Do not place the system in an inclined position or in
locations that are extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or
humid or lacking adequate ventilation, or subject to
vibration, direct sunlight or a bright light.
Be careful when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (for example,
with wax, oil, polish) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lens inside the CD player, and
cause the system to malfunction. In this situation,
remove the disc, and leave the system turned on for
about an hour until the moisture evaporates.
On heat buildup
Heat buildup on the unit during operation is normal
and is not cause for alarm.
Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the cabinet may
have become hot.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.

Precautions
Discs that this system CAN play
Audio CD
CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files)
Discs that this system CANNOT play
CD-ROM
CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in music CD
format or MP3 format conforming to ISO9660 Level 1/
Level 2, Joliet or multisession
CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession that have not
ended by “closing the session”
CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality, CD-R/CDRW that have scratches or are dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW
recorded with an incompatible recording device
CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly
Discs containing files other than MPEG 1 Audio
Layer‑3 (MP3) files
Discs of non-standard shape (for example, heart,
square, star)
Some discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or sticker
attached to them
Some rental or used discs with attached seals where the
glue extends beyond the seal
Some discs that have labels printed using ink that feels
tacky when touched
Notes on discs
Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning cloth from
the center out to the edge.
Do not clean discs with solvents, such as benzine
thinner, or commercially available cleaners or
anti‑static spray intended for vinyl LPs.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in
direct sunlight.
To later reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken tab
with adhesive tape.
About a tape longer than 90 minutes
The use of the tape with more than 90 minutes of play
time is not recommended except for long, continuous
recording or playback.
Cleaning the tape heads
Use dry- or wet-type cleaning cassette (available
separately) after every 10 hours of use, before you start an
important recording, or after playing an old tape. Failure
to clean the tape heads can cause degraded sound quality
or an inability of the unit to record or play tapes. For
details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Use a demagnetizing cassette (available separately) after
every 20 to 30 hours of use. Failure to demagnetize
the tape heads can cause an increase in noise, a loss of
high frequency sound, and an inability to completely
erase tapes. For details, refer to the instructions of the
demagnetizing cassette.
