Important notes for users in the
U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13
Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug
proceed as follows:
1
2
Remove fuse cover and fuse.
3
Refit the fuse cover.
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 3 Amp,
A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 3 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 3 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
¶ As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath
of the lead - not simply over the two wires.
CAUTION
Use of controls or adjustments or
performance of procedures other
than herein may result in hazardous
radiation exposure or other unsafe
operation.

General Information
● 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.
● The ventilation should not be impeded by
covering the ventilation openings with items,
such as newspapers, table-cloths, cur tains, etc.
● Do not expose the system, batteries or discs to
excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources
caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight.
● No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles,
should be placed on the apparatus.
– 2 speaker boxes
– remote control
– 4 x iPod adaptors
● No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall
be placed on the apparatus.
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.
● 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 disc
unit inside the system. Should this occur, the CD
player would not operate normally. Leave the
power on for about one hour with no disc in the
system until normal playback is possible.
● The mechanical parts of the set contain selflubricating bearings and must not be oiled or
lubricated.
● Batteries (battery pack or batteries installed)
shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as
sunshine, fire or the like.
● 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.
● Place the system on a flat, hard and stable
surface.
● Where the MAINS plug or an appliance coupler
is used as the disconnet device, the disconnet
device shall remain readily operable.
● The apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
● Install the unit near the AC outlet and where the
AC power plug can be easily reached.

Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
● Using headphones at a high volume can impair
your hearing. This product can produce sounds
in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for
a normal person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered
for those that may have already experienced
some hearing loss.
● Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
"comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds
"normal" can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
● Set your volume control at a low setting.
● Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
● Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally
"safe" levels, can also cause hearing loss.
● Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and
take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following
guidelines when using your headphones.
● Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable
periods of time.
● Be careful not to adjust the volume as your
hearing adapts.
● Do not turn up the volume so high that you
can't hear what's around you.
● You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations.
● Do not use headphones while operating a
motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.
Disposal of your old product
Your product is designed and
manufactured with high quality
materials and components,
which can be recycled and
reused.
When this crossed-out wheeled bin symbol is
attached to a product it means the product is
covered by the European Directive 2002/96/EC
Please inform yourself about the local separate
collection system for electrical and electronic
products.
Please act according to your local rules and do
not dispose of your old products with your
normal household waste. The correct disposal of
your old product will help prevent potential
negative consequences for the environment and
human health.

Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
Software version
DRC adds or removes a degree of compensation
for the differences in the dynamic range between
radio stations. For example, a station
broadcasting popular music may have a high level
of compensation applied since the emphasis is on
a constant high listening level, whereas a station
broadcasting classical music will have little or no
compensation as the listener requires all of the
highs and lows in the music to define the detail.
This is only provided as the version number for
this product.
There are three levels of compensation:
DRC 0: No compensation applied.
DRC 1: Maximum compensation applied.
(the default)
DRC1/2: Medium compensation applied.
