infrared ray system which enables the flexible
positioning of the Dream Machine anywhere in
your room!
Read the following carefully and familiarize
yourself with the optimal location of the Dream
Machine.
FM wire antenna
AC power cord
Infrared dome
The infrared ray signals are not successfully
transmitted to the component from the current
location of the Dream Machine. Relocate the
Dream Machine to an optimal location where the
desired component is within the effective range
of the infrared rays and is free from obstructions.
After relocating the Dream Machine, repeat steps
1 to 4 once again.
