Precautions
Discs that this system CAN play
Main unit
Audio CD
CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3/WMA files)
Amplifier section
Discs that this system CANNOT play
CD-ROM
CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in
music CD format, conforming to ISO9660 Level
1/Level 2 or Joliet
CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession that
have not ended by “closing the session”
CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality, CD-R/
CD‑RW that have scratches or are dirty, or
CD-R/CD-RW recorded with an incompatible
recording device
CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly
Discs containing files other than MPEG 1 Audio
Layer-3 (MP3)/WMA files
Discs of non-standard shape (for example,
heart, square, star)
Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or sticker
attached to them
Rental or used discs with attached seals where
the glue extends beyond the seal
Discs that have labels printed using ink that
feels tacky when touched
Notes on discs
Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning
cloth from the center out to the edge.
Do not clean discs with solvents, such as
benzine, thinner, or commercially available
cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl
LPs.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave them in
a car parked in direct sunlight.
On safety
Completely disconnect the power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not
going to be used for an extended period of
time. When unplugging the unit, always grip
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
Should any solid object or liquid get into the
system, unplug the system, and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it again.
The AC power cord can be changed only by a
qualified service facility.
On placement
Do not place the system in an inclined position
or in locations that are extremely hot, cold,
dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking adequate
ventilation, or subject to vibration, direct
sunlight or a bright light.
Be careful when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (for
example, with wax, oil, polish) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
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
inside the CD player, and cause the system to
malfunction. In this situation, remove the disc,
and leave the system turned on for about an
hour until the moisture evaporates.
On heat buildup
Heat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not cause for alarm.
Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
cabinet may have become hot.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
Set the play mode to Normal Play mode.
This speaker system is not magnetically shielded,
and the picture on nearby TV sets may become
magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off
the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.
If there is no improvement, move the speakers
far away from the TV.
Files cannot be played back.
Cleaning the cabinet
The audio files may have inappropriate file
extensions. The file extensions supported by
this system are as follows:
MP3: file extension “.mp3”
WMA: file extension “.wma”
The audio files may have been created in
formats other than MP3/WMA formats.
USB storage devices formatted with file
systems other than FAT16 or FAT32 are
unsupported.*
If you use a partitioned USB storage device,
only files on the first partition can be played.
Files that are encrypted or protected by
passwords, etc. cannot be played back.
* This system supports FAT16 and FAT32, but some
USB storage devices may not support all of these
FAT. For details, see the operation manual of each
USB storage device or contact the manufacturer.
