Platter and rubber mat are packaged separately and placed beneath the body of the unit. TURNTABLE PLATTER ACCESSORIES AND RUBBER MAT POWER SUPPLY CONNECTION For power the unit requires normal house- hold current (AC). Simply plug the unit into a wall outlet, or your amplifiers (or receiver's) convenience receptacle on the rear panel. If it is plugged to a convenience receptacle marked “SWITCHED,” you cannot operate the unit when the power switch on the amplifier or receiver is set to OFF, Note: The unit has been factory-adjusted to the voltage of area it is shipped to. As a precau- tion, however, locate the Voltage Selector VOLTAGE SELECTOR 120V +— 220 240V © © N (120V/220-240V) on the upper side of the unit, and check to be sure the selector is set to the voltage of your area. If it is not, change the selector position, using a screwdriver. INSTALLATION To prevent hum, do not place the unit near appliances with motors or large transformers. Be sure the unit's location is not subject to high temperature, humidity, or direct sunlight, to prevent possible troubles. Vibration or tilted installation will impede good performance of the turntable and the stylus will skip grooves.

Check that the terminals are screwed down firmly and no loose strands of wire are present, IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the follow- ing code: BLUE: NEUTRAL BROWN: LIVE As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as follows. The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK. The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or colour- ed BROWN or RED. CARTRIDGE INSTALLATION The unit accepts a cartridge of 3 - 9 grams weight. Install an appropriate cartridge onto the headshell, using the screws, nuts, and washers supplied for that purpose, If these screws do not fit your cartridge, use screws accompanying the cartridge or obtain the proper ones commercially. The lead wires ex- tending from the headshell are color-coded, as listed below. Be sure to connect each wire cor- rectly. Green: Right/— Blue: Left/— Red: Right/+ White: Left/+ | & & ? e 1. The motor section of the unit is tem- porarily secured with 2 transit screws to pre- vent vibration or shock damage during transit. Using a Philips-head screwdriver, remove these screws. Keep the screws with the owner's manual and use again when transporting the unit in the future. 2. Hold the platter with the plane side up, and fit the spindle through the platter center hole to attach to body. 3. Turning the platter by hand, locate the pulley through one of the holes in the platter. Hook the attached rubber belt onto the pulley. Note: On this unit, change r.p.m. (33-1/3 or 45) by manually rehooking the rubber belt. For 33-1/3 r.p.m., hook the belt onto the upper groove of the pulley so that the belt runs above the belt guide; for 45 r.p.m., hook the belt onto + 45 the base of the pulley so that the belt runs below the belt guide. After hooking the belt, manually rotate the platter 2 to 3 turns, and the rubber belt will fit into the pulley smooth- ly. CONNECTION TO AMPLIFIER OR RECEIVER The unit is provided with RCA cords for both channels, and a ground wire. The RCA cord with white plug should be connected to L (left 4.

UNA СООТ channel) of PHONO terminals and the cord with red plug to R (right channel) of PHONO terminals on the amplifier or receiver. Connect the ground wire to GND terminals on the amplifier or receiver. AMPLIFIER OR RECEIVER GND GND PHONO OVERHANG ADJUSTMENT * Use a rule, etc. to carry out correct adjust- ment. As shown in the illustration, overhang indicates the distance from the stylus tip to the center of the turntable spindle when the stylus tip falls on the extension of a straight line from the pivot of the tonearm to the center of the spin- dle. If the overhang adjustment is not properly made, the stylus will not be able to trace the re- cord grooves correctly. YU Li ae dl 1. Loosen the two cartridge mounting screws. 2. Position the tonearm over the spindie. 3. Slide the cartridge forward or backward until the position of the stylus tip corresponds to the specified distance from the center of spindle (see illustration). 4. After obtaining correct overhang, tighten the two cartridge mounting screws firmly. Note: Be careful not to touch stylus during adjustment with fingers. A uu a O STYLUS FORCE ADJUSTMENT Appropriate stylus force must be obtained to let the stylus trace the grooove correctly. Incor- rect setting of the stylus force may cause the system to skip grooves or affect the reproduced sound quality, 1. Set the antiskating knob to O position. Lower the cueing stick, and release the tone- arm from the arm rest. 2. Move the counterweight forward and backward so that the tonearm will be balanced horizontally. When balanced, the headshell is raised and the tonearm parallels the main body with the tonearm base as fulcrum. (Caution: Be careful not to drop the stylus or hit it against the platter or other objects.) 3. Return the tonearm onto the arm rest. Turn the gauge ring of the counterweight so that 0 point falls on the reference marker on the tonearm. 4. Turn the counterweight to preset the reading on the gauge to the designated stylus force of your cartridge. Do not touch the gauge ring, as it will turn with the counter weight. 5. Turn and set the anti-skating knob to the value same as the stylus force of your cartridge. Stylus force adjustment is now complete. PLAY 1. Make sure the rubber belt is hooked onto appropriate position on the pulley for the r.p.m. of your record (see “note” in step 3 of ASSEMBLY section). 2. Place a record on the platter. To play a record with a large center hole, use an EP adaptor commercially available. 3. Free the tonearm from the arm rest clamp. 4. Swing the tonearm to correct position over the record. At this moment, the power in the unit is turned on, and the platter begins to rotate. 5. Swing the tonearm to correct position over the record. 6. When the record is over, or when you wish to interrupt the play midway through the 3 record, lift the cueing stick. Return the tone- arm to the arm rest, and secure it with the arm rest clamp. The power inthe unit is automatical- ly shut off, and the platter stops turning. MAINTENANCE 1. Keep the stylus tip clean of dust. Clean the stylus carefully using a soft brush, and also clean the record before commencing play. 2. The stylus tip is very sensitive. Be careful not to touch it with a finger nor let it come in contact with solid objects. 3. The stylus is usually good for about 500 to 1,000 hours of continuous playing. A worn stylus will cause the record to be distorted and the record to be damaged. Be sure to use the correct replacement stylus matching your cartridge. 4, Do not move the turntable when it is operating. Never try to stop the platter forcibly by hand while it is rotating. 5. When replacing cartridge or stylus, make sure the power cord is unplugged. 6. Lubrication is unnecessary. Consult your dealer if necessity arises. 7. Always keep the unit clean. Use a soft dry cloth to clean the cabinet and the dust COVeT. 8. The rubber belt conveying rotation of the pulley to the platter will become stiff or loose over a long period of use. When that HOWLING AND HUM Howling is. usually caused by vibration of speakers, which affects the sensitive cartridge. If such a phenomenon occurs, relocate the turn- table or speakers as far apart from each other as possible. Hum is usually caused by nearby appliances that use transformers or thermostat. Relocating the unit further away from the noise sources will readily solve the problem. A hum may also be produced if the unit is not properly grounded. Make sure the grounding wire extending from the unit is securely con- nected to the GND (or G) terminal on the amplifier or receiver. happens, consult your dealer and replace the belt.
