< Never use such chemicals as record sprays,
antistatic sprays or fluid, benzine or thinner to clean
the discs. Such chemicals will do irreparable
damage to the disc’s plastic surface.
< Discs should be returned to their cases after use to
avoid dust and scratches that could cause the laser
pickup to “skip.”
< Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or high
humidity and temperature for extended periods.
Long exposure to high temperatures will warp the
disc.
< Do not play any disc that is warped, deformed or
damaged. Playing such discs may cause irreparable
harm to the playing mechanisms.
6
< CD-R and CD-RW discs are more sensitive to the
effects of heat and ultraviolet rays than ordinary
CDs. It is important that they are not stored in a
location where direct sunlight will fall on them, and
which is away from sources of heat such as
radiators or heat-generating electrical devices.
< Printable discs aren’t recommended, as the label
side might be sticky and damage the unit.
< Do not stick papers or protective sheets on the
discs and do not use any protective coating spray.
< Use a soft oil-based felt-tipped pen to write the
information on the label side. Never use a ball-point
or hard-tipped pen, as this may cause damage to
the recorded side.
< Never use a stabilizer. Using commercially available
CD stabilizers with this unit will damage the

Connecting Antennas (AM)
AM Indoor Loop Antenna
The high-performance AM loop antenna provided
with this unit is sufficient for good reception in
most areas.
To stand the loop antenna on a surface, fix the
claw to the slot in the antenna base.
AM Outdoor Antenna
If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver
sufficient reception (often due to being too far
from the transmitter or in a concrete building, etc.),
it may be necessary to use an outdoor AM antenna.
Use either a high quality commercial AM antenna
or, if not available, an insulated wire more than 5
m long, strip one end, and connect this to the
terminal as shown.
The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or
indoors near a window. For better reception,
connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.
Note:
Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not
disconnect the AM loop antenna.
Connect the loop antenna’s wires to the AM
antenna terminals.
Make sure to connect:
white wire q right terminal
black wire q left terminal (GND)
Place the antenna on a shelf or hang it on a
window frame, etc., in the direction which gives
the best reception. Keep all other wires such as
power cords, speaker wires or interconnect wires
as far away as possible from the antenna.
12
Connecting Antennas (FM)
FM Indoor Antenna
Connect the lead-type FM antenna to the FM 75Ω
socket, extend the lead and tune the tuner to
your favorite station (see page 43). Adjust the
antenna in a suitable location like a window
frame or wall until the reception is best and then
affix the antenna in that position using thumb
tacks, push pins or any other suitable means.
FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be
necessary to use an outdoor FM antenna.
Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient;
if you live in an area where the FM signals are
particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one
with 5 or more elements.
< Disconnect the FM indoor antenna when using an
outdoor antenna.
13
Connecting Antennas (DAB)
DAB Indoor Antenna
Connect the T-type DAB antenna to the DAB
socket, extend the lead vertically and attach it to a
window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like,
where reception is best.
< You can check the antenna adjustment or
positioning for the best reception by viewing the
signal strength on the display.
The signal strength is displayed as a bar graph by
pressing the ENTER button once.

About DAB
DAB Outdoor Antenna
In an area where DAB signals are weak, it will be
necessary to use an outdoor DAB antenna. There
are two main types available.
Dipole:
For use in marginal signal areas. This type of
antenna is omnidirectional and should increase the
strength of all DAB stations being received.
Multi-element antenna:
Also for use in marginal or poor signal areas. This
type of antenna is directional and has high gain.
This antenna needs to be pointed at the transmitter
you want to listen to.
Multi-element antenna
With this unit you can receive and listen to Digital
Audio Broadcast (DAB) programmes. DAB uses digital,
not analogue signals, resulting in near CD-quality
audio with virtually interference-free reception. Along
with superior quality audio, DAB can also deliver
additional audio channels and text. In the future,
computer data and images are also possible.
Digital radio is broadcast as groups of data called
ensembles or multiplexes. Each multiplex can contain a
number of stations (services) and each station contains
a primary service and can contain secondary services
as illustrated in the following diagram.

SERVICES
Each multiplex is transmitted in a set frequency range
and received by this unit for decoding. You can receive
multiplexes broadcast in the 174-240 MHz frequency
band and store the services in each multiplex for you
to access. The number of multiplexes you receive
depend on your location. Channels used in the UK are
in the range 10A to 12D.
< It is possible to use a TV or FM antenna with your
DAB tuner as this is normally mounted externally.
This may give a stronger signal than a simple
internal antenna, however it would not be tuned
specifically for DAB reception.
Multiplexes and stations have labels (names) that are
used to identify them. Instead of needing to know the
particular frequency of your favourite broadcast, you
can simply select the station name. Secondary services
and additional data such as text or multiplex info are
also available.
You would need to change the plug on your TV/FM
antenna to an F type, and it may also be necessary
to use a signal booster to enhance the signal.
