TAB
To record a tape that has its tabs removed,
place a piece of sticky tape over the holes,
this will allow recordings to take place.
Recommended Cassette Tapes
In order to obtain optimum performance with
the built-in cassette tape deck, it is essential
to use only high quality cassette tapes. The
bias and equalization of this tape deck is
adjusted to yield excellent results if used with
brand name tapes. Use C-30, C-60 and C-90
cassette tapes only. We do not recommend
the C-120 cassettes because they can be
subject to mechanical instability and proper,
constant tape tension cannot be controlled.
Special KARAOKE cassette/CD discs may be
purchased from many hi-fi retail outlets or
record shops. This type of karaoke tape/CD
contains popular music/instrumentals
recorded on one side of the tape and
predominantly vocals on the other side the
tape. With these it is possible to sing along
(lyric are supplied with the cassettes) to the
music or vocal recordings. The priority of voice
verses music being played through the XB16 speaker can be altered to suit your own
requiments by adjusting the MIC MIX control
to music or vocals.
Checking the Cassette (Slack Tape)
Make sure that the
cassette tape has no
slack prior to inserting
it into the cassette
compartment. Use a
pencil as shown to
take up slack on one
of the reels.
PROTECTING YOUR RECORDINGS
MAINTENANCE TAPE MECHANISM
All non pre-recorded cassette tapes can be
made record proof. On the back edge of the
cassette can be found two squaretabs, if a
recording is to be protected from accidental
erasure, remove the corresponding tab
applicable to that side of the tape as shown
in the diagram. Use a small screwdriver, nail
file or similiar implement to break the tab.
Once the tab has been removed, recording
on that particular side of the tape will be
prevented, the tape mechanism will detect that
CLEANING THE TAPE MECHANISM
As the tape runs through the tape mechanism,
magnetic powder and dust naturally
accumulate on the tape deck heads, capstans
and pinch roller. When they become too dirty:
* Sound quality deteriorates
* The output sound level drops
* The previous recording is not completely
erased

Recording is not performed statisfactory
The Cassette tape may stick to the pinch
roller and cause damages to both the tape
and player itself.
To ensure the continued high peformance of
your unit, periodically clean the heads and
pinch roller to prevent the accummation of
dust or tape oxide deposits, we recommended
to use a special tape cleaning cassette that
enables a completed and simplified cleaning
operation. Such tape cleaning cassettte is
available at most Hi-Fi retail outlets or record
shops.

THE CAUSE OF INTERFERENCE IN TV RECEIVING
SNOW
Weak TV signals from long distant stations
result in a poor picture and give the effect of
falling snow. An antenna adjustment or
antenna amplifier may be needed.
Incorporated in your TV receiver are the most
up-to-date devices to eliminate interference.
Local radiation however, can create
disturbances which visibly affect your picture.
Proper installation, a good aerial are your best
safe-guards against these disturbances.
GHOST
Multiple image caused by TV signals reflected
back from surrounding buildings, hills, aircraft,
etc. can be minimized by correcting the aerial
positioning.
RF INTERFERENCE
Moving ripples across the screen are caused
by nearby transmitting or receiving-shortwave radio equipment.
CAR IGNITION
Nearby cars and electrical motors can cause
small streaks across the picture or make the
picture roll.
DIATHERMY
Herringbone pattern and partial picture loss
can result from the operation of diathermy
equipment from a nearby doctor’s surgery or
hospital.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Your hearing is very important to you and to us so please take care when operating this
equipment. It is strongly recommended that you follow the listed guidelines in order to prevent
possible damage or loss of hearing:
ESTABLISH A SAFE SOUND LEVEL
• Over time your hearing will adapt to continuous loud sounds and will give the impression
that the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful.
To guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEARING ADAPTS set the volume at a low level.
• Slowly increase the level until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without distortion.
• Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible.
• Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.
• Remember listening for prolonged period of time at high volume levels will harm your hearing.
Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO NOT INCREASE THE SOUND
LEVEL FURTHER.
The following list of typical sound levels may assist you in recognising just how loud you have
set the volume level.
