WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
4 Do not expose this unit to sudden temperature changes from cold to hot,
and do not locate this unit in an environment with high humidity (i.e. a
room with a humidifier) to prevent condensation inside this unit, which
may cause an electrical shock, fire, damage to this unit, and/or personal
injury.
This unit is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as it
is connected to the wall outlet, even if this unit itself is turned off by
A. This state is called the standby mode. In this state, this unit is
designed to consume a very small quantity of power.
5 Avoid installing this unit where foreign object may fall onto this unit

top of this unit, do not place:
– Other components, as they may cause damage and/or discoloration
on the surface of this unit.
– Burning objects (i.e. candles), as they may cause fire, damage to this
unit, and/or personal injury.
– Containers with liquid in them, as they may fall and liquid may cause
electrical shock to the user and/or damage to this unit.
6 Do not cover this unit with a newspaper, tablecloth, curtain, etc. in order
not to obstruct heat radiation. If the temperature inside this unit rises, it
may cause fire, damage to this unit, and/or personal injury.
7 Do not plug in this unit to a wall outlet until all connections are
complete.

12 Only voltage specified on this unit must be used. Using this unit with a
higher voltage than specified is dangerous and may cause fire, damage
to this unit, and/or personal injury. Yamaha will not be held responsible
for any damage resulting from use of this unit with a voltage other than
specified.
13 To prevent damage by lightning, keep the power cable and outdoor
antennas disconnected from a wall outlet or this unit during a lightning
storm.
14 Do not attempt to modify or fix this unit. Contact qualified Yamaha
service personnel when any service is needed. The cabinet should never
be opened for any reasons.

■ Notes on remote controls and batteries
• Do not spill water or other liquids on the remote control.
• Do not drop the remote control.
• Do not leave or store the remote control in the following conditions:
– places of high humidity, such as near a bath
– places of high temperatures, such as near a heater or stove
– places of extremely low temperatures
– dusty places
• Insert the battery according to the polarity markings (+ and -).
• Change all batteries if you notice the following conditions:
– the operation range of the remote control narrows
– the transmit indicator does not flash or is dim
• If the batteries run out, immediately remove them from the remote control
to prevent an explosion or acid leak.
• If you find leaking batteries, discard the batteries immediately, taking
care not to touch the leaked material. If the leaked material comes into
contact with your skin or gets into your eyes or mouth, rinse it away
immediately and consult a doctor. Clean the battery compartment
thoroughly before installing new batteries.
• Do not use old batteries together with new ones. This may shorten the life
of the new batteries or cause old batteries to leak.
• Do not use different types of batteries (such as alkaline and manganese
batteries) together. Specification of batteries may be different even
though they look the same.
17 Before moving this unit, press A (power) to set it to standby mode and
disconnect the AC power plug from the wall outlet.
• Before inserting new batteries, wipe the compartment clean.
18 Condensation will form when the surrounding temperature changes
suddenly. Disconnect the power cable from the outlet, then leave this
unit alone.
• Keep batteries away from children. If a battery is accidentally swallowed,
contact your doctor immediately.
• When not planning to use the remote control for long periods of time,
remove the batteries from the remote control.

■ Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices
within an area of about 10 meters (33 ft) employing the 2.4 GHz frequency
band, a band which can be used without a license.
■ Handling Bluetooth communications
• The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth compatible devices is a radio band
shared by many types of equipment. While Bluetooth compatible devices
use a technology minimizing the influence of other components using the
same radio band, such influence may reduce the speed or distance of
communications and in some cases interrupt communications.
• The speed of signal transfer and the distance at which communication is
possible differs according to the distance between the communicating
devices, the presence of obstacles, radio wave conditions and the type of
equipment.
• Yamaha does not guarantee all wireless connections between this unit and
devices compatible with Bluetooth function.
