Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume.

Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play.

If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.

Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.

You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air type designed to let you hear outside sounds, don’t turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds

“normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.

Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level

BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

● Start your volume control at a low setting.

● Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

● Leave it there.

Do not rest the unit on your lap for a long time while using it. The unit can become hot and cause burns.

WARNING

DRIVER MUST NOT OPERATE OR VIEW THIS UNIT

WHILE OPERATING THE VEHICLE.

Doing so will distract the driver and could cause a collision resulting in serious injury or property damage.

To prevent damage

Avoid the following:

● Spraying flammable insecticides near the unit.

● Pressing the LCD.

● Touching the lens and other parts of the laser pickup.

Do not use the unit in the following places:

● Sandy places such as beaches.

● On top of cushions, sofas, or hot equipment such as amplifiers.

Do not leave in an unventilated automobile or exposed to direct sunlight and high temperatures.

Cautions

● To avoid draining your car battery

– Disconnect the Car DC Adaptor from the cigarette lighter after use. The Car DC Adaptor continues to consume some power even if it is not being used, and if a battery pack is attached to this unit, it will start recharging which uses more power.

– Do not use the Car DC Adaptor for long periods when the engine is not running.

● Turn the unit off before stopping the engine while using Car DC Adaptor, otherwise resume play (→ 8) may not work.

● Leave some slack in the cord.

● No responsibility will be taken for damage that occurs due to faulty installation.

You can enjoy audio through your car audio system by connecting a car stereo cassette adaptor

(not included) to the headphone jack on the left side of this unit.
