INFORMATION
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
— Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
— Increase the separation between the equipment
and receiver.
— Connect the equipment into an outlet on a
circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.

technician for help.
WARNING
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly
replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent
type.
Replace the battery for the clock backup with a Sony
CR2032 lithium battery. Use of another battery may
present a risk of fire or explosion.
Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not recharge,
disassemble or dispose of in fire.
Do not expose the batteries (battery pack or batteries

Installing the unit under a
cabinet
(See Fig. )
Caution
Please read the following before
installing the unit
Due to its heavy weight, the unit should be installed
with great care.
Installation of the unit requires two persons.
Use tools carefully while installing of the unit.
Be sure that the cabinet that is used is sturdy enough
to support the weight of the unit.
To reduce the risk of fire, do not place any heating or
cooking appliance beneath this unit.
Install the unit so that its AC power cord can be
connected directly to a wall outlet. Do not use a
converter or extension cord.
Be sure that the AC power cord has no slack during
use of the unit, since the cord acts as an FM wire
antenna. If the AC power cord has some slack, wind
it around the cord hook so as to eliminate the slack.
The unit has a built-in ferrite bar antenna for AM
radio reception. Confirm that AM reception is
acceptable before finally attaching the unit.
Install the unit as far as possible from sources of
noise (for example, a refrigerator, microwave oven or
fluorescent lamp).
This unit is not waterproof. Install it where it will
not be exposed to splashing by water, as this may
damage the unit.
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
touch the AC power cord with wet hands.
Never place objects between the top of the unit and
the bottom of the cabinet. This could cause the unit
to fall.
Make sure the unit’s four screws are fastened tightly.
After installing the unit, do not pull down on it or
hang something heavy on it.
1 Decide on the installation location and
orientation of the unit based on the best
reception that is possible (see “Improving
the reception”).
2 Mark the position of the 4 holes by using
the supplied template. Use a drill to make
the holes (size 6.5 mm diam., 9/32 inch). (See
Fig. -)
3 When the cabinet door overhangs the shelf
and obstructs the unit, you can adjust the
unit/shelf height.
First set the L mark to the dot which
becomes the lowest position, then you
can adjust the height in 4 steps (HL)
by turning the spacer counterclockwise
(See Fig. -). The unit can be installed
without the spacer.
4 Install the unit with the supplied mounting
screws. (See Fig. -)
Note
If you lose the supplied screws, please purchase #10 or
M5 screws.
