surface which might obstruct the ventilation slots.
DO NOT EXPOSE THE RECEIVER OR ITS ACCESSORIES:
yy
To direct sunlight or any other equipment that generates heat; to rain or intense moisture; to
intense vibration and to any shock which may cause permanent damage to your receiver or to
any magnetic objects, such as loudspeakers, transformers, etc.
yy
Do not use a damaged power cord. It may cause a fire or an electrical shock. Do not touch a
power cord with wet hands. It may cause an electric shock.
yy
When the receiver is not used for a long period of time, you should unplug the power cord from
the wall socket.
yy
Do not use alcohol or ammonia based liquids to clean the receiver. If you wish, you may clean
your receiver with a soft lint-free cloth slightly made damp with a mild soap solution, only after
disconnecting from the mains voltage supply. Make sure no foreign objects fall through the
ventilation slots because this could cause fire or an electric shock.
yy
Do not place any objects on top of the receiver because this might prevent proper cooling of
the components inside.
Safety Precautions
yy
Never open the receiver cover. It is dangerous to touch the inside of the receiver due to
high voltage currents and possible electrical hazards and your warranty will be void. Refer all
maintenance or servicing to suitably qualified personnel.
yy
When you are connecting cables, be sure that the receiver is disconnected from the mains
supply voltage. Wait a few seconds after switching off the receiver before you move the
receiver or disconnect any equipment.
yy
It is a necessity that you only use an approved extension and compatible wiring that is suitable
for the electrical power consumption of the installed equipment. Please ensure that the
electrical power supply corresponds with the voltage on the electrical identification plate at the
back of the receiver.
yy
If the receiver does not operate normally even after strictly following the instructions in this user
manual, it is recommended to consult your dealer.
1.2 Storage
Your receiver and its accessories are stored and delivered in a packaging designed to protect
