CLEANING
Do not use volatile solvents such as alcohol,
paint thinner, gasoline, benzine, etc. to clean the
cabinet. Use a silicone cloth or a clean dry cloth.
VENTILATION HOLES
The case top is slotted to allow ventilation.
Never block these holes with ornamental cloths,
books or other objects. Make sure that metal
objects such as coins, hairpins or needles do not
enter the unit through the ventilation holes. The
result could be a serious malfunction or a possible
shock hazard. Make sure that children do not
insert foreign objects into the ventilation holes.
MODIFICATIONS AND SERVICE
Each unit is shipped after it has been
carefully adjusted and tested to provide optimum
performance. The unit must not be modified
internally. Unauthorized modifications will void
the terms of the warranty. High voltages are used
in some of the internal circuits. Therefore, do not
remove the cabinet or touch internal parts. Refer
all service to qualified service personnel.
POWER CORD
Always insert or remove the power plug
from the AC outlet by grasping the plug body.
Never pull or stretch the cord. Take care that the
cord is not subject to traffic or bent sharply around
furniture. Keep heavy objects off the cord; never
route it under rugs, and avoid the use of extra ex-
tension cords. Attention to these precautions will
avoid fire or shock hazards.
ACOUSTIC FEEDBACK
Occasionally a disturbing howling sound
caused by acoustic feedback, may be heard. This
Is generally caused by the relative positions of the
turntable and speaker enclosures. The sound
pressure radiated from the speaker surrounds and
vibrates the turntable.
This vibration is picked up by the cartridge,
sent to the unit as an electrical signal, and
returned to the speaker. This again causes the
speakers to radiate vibration which induces
sympathetic vibrations In the turntable and
cartridge. Sympathetic vibrations are reinforced
with each repeating cycle and result in an
undesirable sound called oscillation or “howling”.
To prevent it, keep your turntable away from your
speakers. Also, mounting your turntable on
shock-absorbing pads may help.
SPEAKER-SYSTEM PROTECTION
Your KR-7050 is capable of supplying very
high power to your speakers. To prevent speaker
damage due to accidental surges, such as may be
caused by inadvertently dropping the stylus onto a
record, make it a habit to reduce volume before
changing records, switching between program
sources or turning power ON,
Check the power-handling ability of your
speakers and make sure that the power supplied is
within their limits. Excessive power can
permanently damage your speakers.

SPEAKERS
If only one set of speakers is to be
connected, make connections to the terminals
marked SPEAKERS A, as shown on page 5.
Connect the speakers to the and | В terminals
in accordance with the location selected for each
speaker. To ensure correct speaker phasing,
observe polarity marks; connect terminals marked
+ on the receiver to similarly-marked speaker
terminals. Do the same for receiver and speaker
terminals marked with a minus sign. Reversal of
speaker leads will result in loss of bass tones and
poor stereo separation.
If a second set of speakers is to be used,
make connections at the right set of terminals,
marked B.
It should be noted that pairs of speakers
must be connected to SPEAKERS terminals A and
B, if sound is to be heard when the SPEAKERS
switch is set to the A + B position. In this setting
the speakers connected to the A and B terminals
are put in series. Therefore, If there are no
speakers connected to the B terminals, no sound
will be heard from the A speakers when the
SPEAKERS switch is set to A + B.
When connecting the speaker leads to the
speaker terminals, make sure that the bare wire
strands at the ends of the speaker leads do not
touch the adjacent terminal.
lt is recommended that the tips of the
speaker leads be soldered, or the strands of
individual leads be twisted together to eliminate
any possibility of short-circuits forming in the
speaker connecting network.
Note:
Speaker impedance must be 4-ohms or more if only one set
of speakers is to be connected or when a pair is connected
to both the A and B terminals.
TURNTABLES
Your stereo turntable has two audio cables
that are terminated with phono plugs. Plug the
left channel plug into the [L] and the right channel
plug into the [R] PHONO INPUT jacks as shown
on page 5.
If the turntable has a ground wire, connect it
to the unit's GND terminal to avoid hum.

connection makes both input and output
connections with a single cord, and the signal
must be controlled with the TAPE B switch on the
front panel.
Note:
If connections are made with a DIN connecting cord, the
TAPE B PLAY and REC jacks should not be used.
Second Tape Deck
Plug the input and output cables from the
second tape deck into the REC and PLAY jacks

Your KR-7050 approaches the theoretical
limit in FM sensitivity. However, the performance
of your system is determined to a very large extent
upon the signal conditions where the antenna is
placed. The reason is that FM broadcast signals
travel in straight paths. Therefore they can be
blocked by natural or man-made obstructions
such as mountains, hills, or buildings. At large
distances from the transmitter the curvature of the
earth acts as a screen between transmitter and
receiver.
Consider the signal conditions in planning
your installation. If you live in or near an urban
area the indoor antenna (supplied) may serve your
needs adequately. However, if favorite stations
are weak due to natural obstructions, or if you live
In a building which is made of steel-reinforced
concrete (which acts as a shield) it may be
necessary to install a good outdoor antenna.

PM Outdoor Antennas
Consult with your dealer or service man
about the best method of selecting and installing
an outdoor FM antenna. The choice of lead-in
(feeder) wire is also important. The flat
ribbon-shaped twin lead performs well electrically,
is cheaper and is somewhat easier to handle in
routing through windows and around rooms.
Coaxial cable 1$ more expensive, does a much
better job of minimizing interference, is less prone
to the effects of weather and close-by metal
objects, and is nearly as good a signal conductor
as the ribbon type wire. The latter is particularly
true of foam-type coaxial cables. Coaxial cable is
somewhat more difficult to install at the point
where the cable enters the building. If coaxial
cable is selected, make sure the antenna is
designed to drive that type of cable. In many
cases a matching transformer (balun) must be
used to connect the antenna terminals to the
coaxial cable.
More than 2 meters
N (6.6 feet) above metal-
More than 4 meters

© To minimize auto-ignition noise, locate the antenna
as far from heavy traffic as possible.
Keep the feeder or coaxial cable as short as
possible. Do not bundle or roll up excess cable.
e The antenna should be at least two meters (6.6
feet) from reinforced concrete walls, or metal
structures.

For maximum safety and minimum in-
terference connect the GND terminal to a good
earth ground if practicable. A good earth ground
is a cold water pipe or a metal stake driven into
moist earth.
