SAFETY INFORMATION
Safety Information
• Before operating the system, check
that the operating voltage indicated
on the typeplate (or the voltage
indication beside the voltage
selector) of your system is identical
with the voltage of your local power
supply. If not, please consult your
dealer. The typeplate is located at the
rear of your system.
• When the system is switched on, do
not move it around.
• Place the system on a solid base (e.g.
a cabinet).
• Place the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent
internal heat build-up in your system.
Allow at least 10cm (4 inches)
clearance from the rear and the top
of the unit and 5cm (2 inches) from
the each side.
• Do not expose the system to
excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat
sources.
• Under no circumstances should you
repair the system yourself, as this will
invalidate the warranty!
• 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
of the CD unit inside the system.
Should this occur, the CD player will
not operate normally. Leave the
power on for about one hour with
no disc in the system until normal
playback is possible.
• Electrostatic discharge may cause
unexpected problems. See whether
these problems disappear if you
unplug the AC power cord and plug
it in again after a few seconds.
• To disconnect the system from
the power supply completely,
remove the AC power plug
from the wall socket.

rumble of spaceships, etc.). Be sure to
follow the instructions supplied with the
subwoofer.
12/8/00, 3:14 PM
• To avoid damage from possible
battery leakage, remove dead
batteries or batteries that will not be
