NOTE:
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.
— Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Voltage selector
You can find the voltage selector switch on the top
panel of multi-voltage models.
The factory setting for the voltage selector is
110-120 V. Please set it to the correct voltage for
your country or region.
• For Taiwan, please set to 110-120 V before using.
Before changing the voltage, disconnect the AC power
cord. Use a medium size screwdriver to change the
voltage selector switch.
The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands
Get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a
safe level – a level that lets the sound come through
clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so
what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting
your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
• Once you have established a comfortable sound
level, set the dial and leave it there.

Information to User
Alterations or modifications carried out without
appropriate authorization may invalidate the user’s
right to operate the equipment.
D8-10-2_A1_En
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug
by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when
your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or
electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture,
etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a
knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords
should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped
on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an
electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a while.
When you find it damaged, ask your nearest service center
or your dealer for a replacement.
S002*_A1_En
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
GUIDELINES:
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t
hear what’s around you.
• Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized
vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.

High-quality analog record sound
The path from the stylus tip to the PHONO/LINE output has been
designed as the shortest to faithfully reproduce the original sound quality of analog records.
Furthermore, since not only PHONO output but also LINE output is supported, you can easily enjoy high quality analog record sound by simply
directly connecting with powered speakers.
WARNING
Easy digital recording
A USB-B terminal is provided so you can directly connect this unit and
a PC or Mac and then record analog record sound sources to the PC or
Mac by converting them to data. Digital recording with simple operation
can be performed by using the recording function of the free music management application “rekordbox” (Ver.4.2.1 or later) when recording.
DJ performance capable direct-drive
turntable
The adoption of a high-torque direct-drive system means you can perform track mixing, scratching, and other DJ performances by combining
two of these units with a DJ mixer.
Dust cover that can serve as a stand for a
record jacket
A record jacket can be displayed on the dust cover while the dust cover
is in an open state. This allows you to enjoy analog record sound while
looking at the record jacket.

Adjustment
Adjusting the stylus pressure
Because the cartridge and headshell weights differ depending on the
product, the balance of the tone arm is adjusted.
Prepare as follows.
! Remove the stylus cover and arm clamper while paying attention not
to touch the stylus tip.
! Push down the lifter lever.
! Set the [ANTI SKATING] dial to “0”.
To prevent stylus jumping or sound distortion, the stylus pressure is
adjusted to the appropriate stylus pressure value determined for each
cartridge.
The appropriate stylus pressure value for the included cartridge is from
3.0 g to 4.0 g.
Prepare as follows.
! Return the tone arm to the arm rest and secure with the arm clamp.
Keep the tone arm from the arm rest and adjust the
balance so it is horizontal.
1 Match the “0” on the stylus pressure adjustment ring
to the center line of the arm rear shaft.
Turn the balance weight until the tone arm becomes almost horizontal.
! When moving the tone arm, make sure that the stylus tip does not
directly touch the turntable and the like.
While using your finger to hold the balance weight to keep it from moving, turn only the stylus pressure adjustment ring so that the number “0”
comes to the black center line of the tone arm rear shaft.

Cautions on use
About condensation
Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating
parts and lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a
cold place into a warm room or if the temperature in the room in which
the unit is installed rises suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will
not operate properly and will not be playable with condensation inside.
Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature (though this
time depends on the conditions of the condensation) without turning on
the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will become
playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is
exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens,
move the unit to a different location.
When transporting the unit to another
location
Remove the dirt.
! Detach the slip mat and turntable before packing.
! Detach the headshell and balance weight from the arm and pack
carefully.
! Use the arm clamper to secure the tone arm and use tape to secure
it so that it does not move.
! Wrap the main unit in a blanket or soft paper so that it will not be
damaged.
! Pack so that a force will not be applied to the tone arm.
Maintenance of each part
When attaching and detaching the headshell, turn off the power of the
amplifier.
If you attempt to do so while the volume is loud, the speaker could be
damaged.
! Remove the shell with cartridge and use a soft tip brush or writing
brush to carefully remove dust, etc. from the stylus tip.
! Use a good quality record cleaner to clean records.
! Use a soft cloth or something similar to clean the headshell terminal
and then reattach it to the tone arm.
Use the original packing materials to pack the unit.
If the original packing materials are not available, be sure to perform the
following.
En

Cleaning the dust cover, etc.
Use a soft cloth to clean the dust cover and cabinet
! Do not clean the dust cover while playing. Static electricity could
