-
No user-serviceable parts inside.
-
Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
This lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninstalled
“dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance
(servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.
The symbol on this product indicates that it is of CLASS II
(double insulated) construction.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION: READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT.
1.
READ AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS: All the safety and operation instructions should be read before the product is operated.
Follow all operation instructions within this manual.
2.
RETAIN INSTRUCTIONS: The safety and operation instructions should be retained for future reference.
3.
HEED WARNINGS: Comply with all warnings on the product and in the operation instructions.
4.
CLEANING: Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a
damp cloth for cleaning.
5.
GROUNDING or POLARIZATION: This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having
one pin wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician since it is likely
you have an out of safe wall socket. Never force the plug into the socket.
6.
OVERLOADING: Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords as this can result in the risk of
fire or electric shock. Overloaded AC outlets, extension cords, frayed power cables, damaged
or cracked wire insulation, and broken plugs are dangerous. They may result in electric shock
or fire hazard. Periodically examine the power cable - if its appearance indicates damage or
deteriorated receptacles have it replaced by your service technician.
7.
POWER SOURCES: This product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the rear panel label. If
you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. For products
intend to be operated from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operation instructions.
8.
ACCESSORIES: Do not place this product on an unstable surface or support. The product may fall,
causing serious injury to a child or adult as well as serious damage to the product. Any mounting of
the product should follow the manufacture’s instructions and use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer. A product and cart combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and cart combination to
overturn.
9.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING: If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna
or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. The example
below is for reference only. Correct grounding should always be installed by an electrician.

10. POWER-CORD PROTECTION: The power supply cables should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched
by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cables at plugs and the point where they exit from the
product. The mains plug of the power supply cord shall remain readily operable.
11. ATTACHMENTS: Do not use unauthorized attachments as they may cause faults with the unit.

voltage and may damage precision components. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
14. LIGHTNING: For added protection during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long period of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to
lightning and power line .
15. REPLACEMENT PARTS: Should replacement parts be required, have the service technician verify that the replacement parts
he uses have the same safety characteristics as the original parts. Use of unauthorized replacements parts can cause fire or
electric shock.
16. SAFETY CHECK: Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks
recommended by the manufacturer to determine that the product is in a safe operating condition.
17. HEAT DISPERSAL: Leave at least 10 cm of space between the top, back and sides of the unit and the wall or other electrical
components.
18. The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be placed
on the apparatus.
19. NOTES ON USE
Keep the set free from moisture.
water,and dust.
Do not let foreign objects in the set.
Avoid high temperatures
Allow for sufficient heat dispersion
when installed on a rack.
Unplug the power cord when not
using the set for long periods of
time
Handle the power cord carefully.
Hold the plug when unplugging the
cord.
Do not let insecticides,benzene,and
thinner come in contact with the set.

PHONO
Connect the turntable’s output cord L (white) plug to the L PHONO terminal and the R (red) plug to the R PHONO terminal.
If your turntable is equipped with a grounding cable, connect it to the unit’s GND terminal. But disconnect it if you notice increased
humming.
AUDI O
AUX1 terminals
This terminal have an electrical performance which is equivalent to that of the CD terminals which means that it can be used as the
audio output terminals for a line level source. Connect this terminal to the OUTPUT terminal on the component using the pin-plug
cord.
AUX2 terminal
This terminal has an increased sensitivity (x4) compared to the other line level inputs.
Headphone terminal
For connection of a pair of headphones.

REMOTE CONTROL INFORMATION
By using the provided remote control unit, the receiver can
be controlled from your listening position. To use the remote
control unit, point it at the REMOTE SENSOR window of the
receiver.
REMOTE CONTROL OPERATION RANGE
Use the remote control unit within a range of about 7
meters (23 feet) and the angles of up to 30 degrees aiming
at the remote sensor.
Notes:
BATTERY INSTALLATION
- Even if the remote control unit is operated within the
effective range, remote control operation may be impossible
if there are any obstacles between the unit and the remote
control.
- If the remote control unit is operated near other appliance
which generate infrared rays, or if other remote control
devices using infrared rays are used near the unit, it may
operate incorrectly.
Precautions concerning batteries
-Be sure to insert the batteries with correct positive+ and
negative – polarities.
- Use batteries of the same type. Never use different types of
batteries together.
- Rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries can be used.
Refer to the precautions on their labels.
- When the remote control unit is not to be used for a long
time (more than a month), remove the batteries from the
remote control unit to prevent them from leaking. If they leak,
