Choosing System Location
It is recommended to follow these guidelines when
setting up your system:
• Choose a solid, level surface. Don’t place on surfaces
like carpet or foam rubber.
• Choose a location away from direct sunlight, radiator, air ducts and sources of heat.
• Avoid locations subject to moisture, mechanical
vibration, shock or excessive dust.
• Ensure that the location is adequately ventilated, as
it is essential to protect the unit from internal heat
build-up.

Handling CDs
• Do not touch the signal surfaces. Hold CDs by the
edges, or by one edge and the hole. Do not affix labels
12
or adhesive tapes to the label surfaces. Do not scratch or
damage the label. CDs rotate at high speeds inside the
player. Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) CDs
Cleaning CDs
• Dirty CDs can cause poor sound quality. Always keep
CDs clean by wiping them gently with a soft cloth from
the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.
• If a CD becomes dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring
it out well, wipe the dirt away gently, and then remove
any water drops with a dry cloth.
• Do not use record cleaning sprays or anti-static agents
on CDs. Also, never clean CDs with benzene, thinner, or
other volatile solvents which may cause damage to disc
surface

More Information
CD Lens Care
When your CD lens gets dirty it can also cause the system
to output poor sound quality. To clean the lens you will
need to purchase a CD lens cleaner which can maintain
the output sound quality of your system. For instructions
on cleaning the CD lens, refer to the ones accompanying
the lens cleaner.
Cassette Player
To prevent deterioration of sound quality, periodically
open the door of each deck and clean the magnetic
heads, pinch roller, and capstan with a cotton bud
dipped in alcohol. Also, demagnetize the head by playing a demagnetizing cassette (available through an
audio equipment store).
To protect recordings one or
both sides of a tape, remove
the corresponding tab. If you
later want to record on the
tape, affix a piece of adhesive
tape over the hole.
Quit Slacking - A little bit of slack
in your tapes can cause scratches
on the tape, or worse yet, the
tape could break. If you notice
some slack in the tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you
insert it.
Side A Protection
• Do not touch the pick-up lens which is located inside
the disc compartment. Also, to keep dust from collecting
on the pick-up lens and do not leave the compartment
door open for an extended period of time. If the lens
becomes dirty, clean it with a soft brush, or use an air
blower brush designed for camera lenses.
Important Batteries Information
• Remove the batteries to avoid leakage if you do not
use your remote control for more than one month.

may cause skin burns or other personal injuries. Dispose
of batteries in the proper manner, according to provincial and local regulations. Any battery may leak electrolyte if mixed with a different battery type, if inserted
incorrectly, if all batteries are not replaced at the same
time, if disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to
charge a battery not intended to be recharged.
