You may find that customizing your EQ settings may work best for you. This feature allows you to adjust the bass
frequency for a fuller, deeper sound from bass-producing instruments, such as drums; the mid-range for more defined
vocals; and the treble for higher frequencies, such as cymbals. You can set the levels from -10 to +10 for each EQ setting
(bas, mid, tre).

Before you use your audio system, you’ll want to make sure
both the FM and AM antennas are positioned properly. The FM
antenna is the coiled wire connected to the back of the unit.
Uncoil it, making sure it is fully extended (you may even want
to tape it to the wall behind the unit, if possible. The higher, the
better.) You’ll also need to connect the AM antenna loop to the
back of the unit if you listen to AM stations.

To get the best sound quality from your audio system, you’ll
want to use the equalizer, or EQ. You can either use the preset
EQ settings (Flat, Rock, Pop, and Jazz), or customize the midrange, bass, and treble settings for your personal preference.
Using the Remote for Tape Player Functions
Keep in mind the tape player functions of the unit are mechanical and can’t be operated by the remote.

(Vous voudrez peut-être même la coller sur le mur à l’arrière
de l’appareil si cela est possible. Le plus haut sera le mieux.)
Vous devrez également connecter la boucle de l’antenne AM à
l’arrière de l’appareil si vous voulez écouter des stations AM.

FCC Information
FCC Information
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
In accordance with FCC requirements, changes or
modifications not expressly approved by Thomson
multimedia Inc. could void the user’s authority to
operate this product.
This device generates and uses radio frequency (RF)
energy, and if not installed and used properly, this
equipment may cause interference to radio and television reception.
If this equipment does cause interference to radio or
television reception (which you can determine by
unplugging the unit), try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:
• Re-orient the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for the radio or television that is "receiving" the
interference).
• Move the unit away from the equipment that is
receiving interference.
• Plug the unit into a different wall outlet so that
the unit and the equipment receiving interference
are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference,
please consult your dealer or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission
has prepared a helpful booklet, "How To Identify
and Resolve Radio TV Interference Problems." This
booklet is available from the U.S. Government
Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402. Please specify
stock number 004-000-00345-4 when ordering
copies.
This product complies with DHHS Rules 21 CFR
Subchapter J. Applicable at the date of manufacture.
For Your Safety
The AC power plug is polarized
(one blade is wider than the
other) and only fits into AC
power outlets one way. If the
plug won’t go into the outlet
completely, turn the plug over and try to insert it the
other way. If it still won’t fit, contact a qualified electrician to change the outlet, or use a different one.
Do not attempt to bypass this safety feature.
CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK,
MATCH WIDE BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE
SLOT, FULLY INSERT.
For Your Records
