DEAR CUSTOMER:
Thank you for purchase and confidence in our all kinds of audio-visual products.
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you have just purchased is only the start
of your musical enjoyment. Now it is time to consider how you can maximize the fun and

Start your volume control at a low setting
Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion we want you listening for a lifetime.

2.Replace the battery Set a new battery property with (+)side up as illustrated.
3.Insert the battery holder. Push in the holder to the original position.
