USER MANUAL JiSS-10i - Spectra Merchandising International, Inc.
(iPod/iPhone Not Included)
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just purchased is only the
start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's time to consider how you can maximize
the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out
of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come
through loud and clear 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.
To establish a safe level:
 Start your volume control at a low setting.
 Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and
without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
 Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the
future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
We Want You Listening For a Lifetime
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment.
Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics
Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
