General Information

This system complies with the FCC rules,

Part 15 and with 21 CFR 1040.10.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

– This device may not cause harmful interference, and

– This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Supplied accessories

– 2 speaker boxes

– remote control

– batteries (two AA size) for remote control

– AM loop antenna

– FM wire antenna

– AC power cord

Environmental information

All unnecessary packaging has been omitted. We have tried to make the packaging easy to separate into three materials: cardboard (box), polystyrene foam (buffer) and polyethylene (bags, protective foam sheet).

Your system consists of materials which can be recycled and reused if disassembled by a specialized company. Please observe the local regulations regarding the disposal of packaging materials, exhausted batteries and old equipment.

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.

● Place the system on a flat, hard and stable surface.

● Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent internal heat build-up in your system. Allow at least 10 cm (4 inches) clearance from the rear and the top of the unit and 5 cm (2 inches) from each side.

● Do not expose the system, batteries or discs to excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight.

● The lens may cloud over when the system is suddenly moved from cold to warm surroundings, making it impossible to play a disc.

Leave the system in the warm environment until the moisture evaporates.

● The mechanical parts of the set contain selflubricating bearings and must not be oiled or lubricated.

When the system is switched to Standby

mode, it is still consuming some power.

To disconnect the system from the power supply completely, remove the AC power plug from the wall socket.

Before connecting the AC power cord to the wall outlet, ensure that all other connections have been made.

WARNING!

– For optimal performance, use only the original power cable.

– Never make or change any connections with the power switched on.

To avoid overheating of the system, a safety circuit has been built in. Therefore, your system may switch to Standby mode automatically under extreme conditions. If this happens, let the system cool down

before reusing it (not available for all versions).

Notes:

– For optimal sound performance, use the supplied speakers.

– Do not connect more than one speaker to any one pair of

+/- speaker terminals.

– Do not connect speakers with an impedance lower than the speakers supplied. Please refer to the SPECIFICATIONS section of this manual.

Preparations

Optional connection

The optional equipment and connecting cords are not supplied. Refer to the operating instructions of the connected equipment for details.

Connecting other equipment to your system

Use a cinch cable to connect AUX/CDR IN to the analogue audio out terminals of an external equipment (TV, VCR, Laser Disc player, DVD player or CD Recorder).

Note:

– If you are connecting equipment with a mono output (a single audio out terminal), connect it to the AUX/CDR IN left terminal. Alternatively, you can use a “single to double” cinch cable (the output sound still remain mono).

Inserting batteries into the remote control

Insert two batteries (type R06 or AA) into the remote control with the correct polarity as indicated by the "

+" and "-" symbols inside the battery compartment.
