PRECAUTIONS: READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT
■ The voltage to be used must be the same as that specified on
this unit. Using this product with a higher voltage than that which
is specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or other type of
accident causing damage. YAMAHA will not be held responsible
for any damage resulting from use of this unit with a voltage other
than that which is specified.
■ To assure the finest performance, please read this manual
carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
■ This system is equipped with the newly developed Active Servo
Processing Speaker System. It is not designed for use with
conventional speakers. Therefore, do not attempt to connect
other speakers than the provided speaker system.
■ The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker
location and other factors. Care should be taken to avoid
exposure to sudden high levels of sound, which may occur when
turning on the unit with the volume control setting at high, and to
continuous high levels of sound.
■ Choose the installation location of this unit carefully. Avoid
placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also avoid
locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat, cold or
moisture. Keep it away from sources of hum such as
transformers and electric motors.
■ Sudden temperature changes and storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside the
cabinet.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction.
To eliminate condensation:
CD pickup
Leave the power on with no disc in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Tape head
Leave the power on with no cassette in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Note
If condensation forms on the tape head, foreign matter may
accumulate during use.
Remote control
Wipe off condensation on the transmitter window with a soft
cloth before operating the unit.
■ Do not operate this unit upside-down. It may overheat, possibly
causing damage.
■ Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the set, contact
your dealer.
•
■ The openings on the cabinet assure proper ventilation of the unit.
If these openings are obstructed, the temperature inside the
cabinet will rise rapidly and eventually damage the circuits.
Therefore, avoid placing objects against these openings and do
not install the unit where the flow of air through the ventilation
openings could be impeded.
•
•
■ Always set the VOLUME control to minimum before starting the
audio source: increase the volume gradually to an appropriate
level after play has started.
■ When not planning to use this unit for long periods of time (ie.,
vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the wall outlet.
■ Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be taken so that
the grounding or polarization of an appliance is not defeated.
■ Do not use force on switches, controls or connection wires. When
moving the unit, first disconnect the power plug and the wires
connected to other equipment. Never pull the wire itself.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of this unit in the space below.
■ Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents; this might
damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
Serial No.:
■ Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section regarding
common operating errors before concluding that the unit is faulty.
The serial number is located on the rear of the unit.
Retain this Owner’s Manual in a safe place for future reference.
■ To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power plug and
the antenna cable when there is an electrical storm.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
■ Do not plug the AC power plug to the wall socket before you
finish all connections.
■ Never allow metallic items (e.g. screwdrivers, tools, etc.) to come
near the cassette deck’s record/playback head assembly in this
unit. Doing so may not only scratch or damage the head’s mirrorsmooth finish, it may change the magnetic characteristics of the
heads, causing a deterioration in reproduction performance
quality.
■ Although the cassette deck’s record/playback heads used in this
unit are high quality heads with outstanding reproduction
characteristics, they can become dirty through the use of old
tapes or from dust accumulation over time. This can have a
serious effect on reproduction quality. Clean the heads regularly
with one of the commonly available head cleaners or with
cleaning solutions.

interfere with operation. In this case, reposition the main
unit to avoid direct lighting.
• Keep the remote control transmitter away from moisture,
excessive heat, shock and vibrations.
• The remote control transmitter’s usable range is within
0.2m (8”) and 6m (20’) away from the sensor.
Precautions for battery use
Insert the batteries according to the direction indicated in
the battery compartment.
Replace all batteries with new ones at the same time.
Remove the batteries if they are weak or if the unit is not
in use for long periods.
Don’t mix normal batteries with rechargeable batteries.

Fundamental rules of internal automatic preset tuning
operation
Basically, FM stations are programmed onto area A, B and C,
and AM stations are programmed onto area D and E (MW
stations are onto D and LW stations are onto E) in that order
automatically.
* If, for example, the number of received FM stations is not
enough to fill up three areas (A, B and C), AM (MW or LW)
stations are programmed closely from the preceeding
empty areas. In such a case, AM (MW) stations are
programmed from area B or C (and LW stations are from
area C or D.)
* Moreover, one area is programmed with stations of the
same band only. If, for example, the last FM station is
programmed to B4, B5–B8 will be programmed with no
station, and AM (MW) stations are programmed from area
C.
Memory back-up
The memory back-up circuit prevents the programmed data
from being lost even if the AC supply lead is disconnected
from the AC outlet or the power is cut due to temporary
power failure. If, however, the power is cut for more than one
week, the memory may be erased. If so, it can be reprogrammed by simply following the Preset tuning steps.

Do not use C-120 tapes or poor-quality tapes, since they
can cause malfunctions.
Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,
tighten the tape slack with a pen or pencil.
Tapes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab
on the top left protects the side facing you from erasure.
Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record
again.
This deck is a Double Cassette Deck with Automatic
Reverse Function.
DECK A: Playback only.
DECK B: Playback or recording.
This deck features an auto tape selector. Just load the
tape, and the tape formula being used will be sensed
automatically.
This unit can play back metal tapes as well as normal or
chrome tapes, and recording can also be done on metal
tapes.
When covering erasure prevention tab holes, do not cover
the chrome and metal detection holes. Otherwise, the
deck will treat tape as normal tape.

Dolby B and C Type Noise Reduction
Dolby noise reduction manufactured under license from
Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
“DOLBY” and the double-D symbol
are trademarks of
Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
With cassette tapes, the most noticeable form of noise is high
frequency hiss. To reduce this hiss noise, this unit has been
equipped with a newly developed Dolby C noise reduction
system in addition to its conventional Dolby B NR. Either type
of noise reduction may be selected with the switch provided.
Dolby B NR has a noise reduction effect of about 10 dB in
the high frequency range. The corresponding figure with
Dolby C NR is about 20 dB, but this is over the entire range
where the human ear is most sensitive to noise (2 kHz to 8
kHz). Also, Dolby C NR has the same noise reduction effect
at both high and low signal levels. In addition, Dolby C NR
improves the tape’s MOL (Maximum Output Level).
Dolby noise reduction is a 2 part process that acts both on
recording and playback; be sure that the noise reduction
button is set to the same position on record and play.
* Noise in the source material cannot be reduced with the
Dolby NR system.

When recording important selections, be sure to make a
preliminary test to ensure that the desired source material
is being properly recorded with good sound quality.
The automatic recording level control circuit automatically
controls the level of the input signal used for recording.
Adjusting the VOLUME control and using the built-in
sound field processor have no effect on the recorded
sound.
If, however, the built-in graphic equalizer is used, its effect
is recorded along with the source.
* Music with an equalizer effect is suitable for listening to

MAINTENANCE
Internal care
DECK A
•
•
Dirty heads, capstans and pinch rollers can cause poor
sound and tape jams.
Clean these parts with a cotton swab moistened with
commercially available head/pinch roller cleaner or
isopropyl alcohol, or with a commercially available
cleaning tape.
After long use, the deck’s heads and capstans may
become magnetized, causing poor sound. Demagnetize
these parts once every 30 hours of playing/recording time
by using a commercial tape head demagnetizer. Read the
demagnetizer’s instructions carefully before use.
DECK B
