Installation
Installation
• Turn off all equipment before connection and
read the appropriate operating instructions.
• The speakers produce the sound from the side
and rear, as well as from the front. Do not
cover the side/rear of the speakers.
• Install the speakers at least 10 cm away from
the back wall, at least 50 cm away from the
side walls. (Keep your speakers more than
10 cm from the main unit.)
• When placing the speakers on stands, be sure
to consult an installation specialist to protect
the speakers from falling off/earthquakes.
Notes on the speakers
• There is Technics logo on the front side.
• The right and left speakers are the same.
• These speakers do not have magnetic shielding.
Do not put them near TVs, PCs or other
equipment easily influenced by magnetism.
• When you play at high levels for a long period,
it can cause damage to the system and
decrease the life of the system.
• Decrease the volume in these conditions to
prevent damage.
- When you play distorted sound.
- When you adjust the sound quality.
- When you turn this unit on.
• Use only the supplied speakers. The
combination of the main unit and speakers give
the best sound. You can cause damage to the
system and decrease the sound quality if you
use other speakers.
• When moving the speakers, disconnect the
speaker cables and hold the centre of the
speakers with both hands.
For optimum position
The quality and volume of the bass sound, sound
localisation performance, sound ambience, and
other factors that determine the audio quality
vary depending on the installation location of
this unit, listening position, room conditions, and
other factors. Refer to the information below
when installing the speakers.
Determining an installation location.
• Put the speakers on a flat safe surface.
• To minimise the gap in audio quality between
the left and right speakers, install them so that
acoustic conditions (reflection and absorption
of sound) around them are the same.
Adjusting the distances between the
speakers and the walls
• If you install the speakers close to a wall or in a
corner, the bass sound will be more powerful;
however, when the speakers are too close to
it, sound localisation performance and sound
ambience may deteriorate. If this occurs, adjust
the distance between the speakers and the
wall.
Unit care
• Pull out the AC mains lead from the outlet
before maintenance. Clean this unit with a soft
cloth.
• When dirt is heavy, wring a wet cloth tightly
to wipe the dirt, and then wipe it with a soft
cloth.
• Do not use solvents including benzine, thinner,
alcohol, kitchen detergent, a chemical wiper,
etc. This might cause the exterior case to be
deformed or the coating to come off.
