Discs that this system CANNOT play
• CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in music CD
format or MP3 format conforming to ISO9660 Level
1/Level 2, Joliet or multisession
• CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession that have not

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 antistatic spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in
direct sunlight.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source
(mains) as long as it is connected to the wall socket,
even if the unit itself has been turned off.
• Completely disconnect the power cord (mains lead)
from the wall socket (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
• 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 a few hours until the moisture evaporates.

On heat buildup
8 (eight)
• Heat buildup on the unit during operation is normal and
is not cause for alarm.

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.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly moistened
with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type
of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as
thinner, benzine, or alcohol.
• Connect the antenna properly.
• Find a location and an orientation that provide good
reception, and then set up the antenna again.
• Keep the antennas away from the speaker cords and the
power cord to avoid picking up noise.
• Connect a commercially available external antenna.
• Consult your nearest Sony dealer if the supplied AM
antenna has come off the plastic stand.
• Turn off nearby electrical equipment.
