We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Yamaha and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics
Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe
level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying
blaring or distortion – and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive
hearing.
Since hearing damage from loud sounds is often undetectable until it is too late, Yamaha and
the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you to avoid
prolonged exposure from excessive volume levels.
• Explanation of Graphical Symbols
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is
intended to alert you to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within
the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk
of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert you to
the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the appliance.

Dimensions
Bluetooth
• Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices within an area of about
10 meters (33 ft) employing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, a band which can be used without a
license.

• The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth compatible devices is a radio band shared by many types
of equipment. While Bluetooth compatible devices use a technology minimizing the influence
of other components using the same radio band, such influence may reduce the speed or
distance of communications and in some cases interrupt communications.
• The speed of signal transfer and the distance at which communication is possible differs
according to the distance between the communicating devices, the presence of obstacles,
radio wave conditions and the type of equipment.
