Installation of headshell
Insert the headshell into the front end of the tubular tone arm.
Turn the locking nut counter-clockwise while the head shell firmly held horizontally.
Installation of counter weight
Slide counter weight onto the rear of the tone arm.
Twist the counter weight counter-clockwise and it will screw onto the rear of the tone
arm.
PLACEMENT
Place the turntable on a flat surface.
Locate the turntable as far away from the speakers as possible and isolate the unit from
sound radiation from them.
PAGE 4
Do not expose the turntable to direct sun, dust, moisture or heat.
Keep the turntable in a place with good ventilation.
The interference may happen when a radio is placed too close to the turntable and both
radio and turntable are playing.
CONNECTIONS
Connect the AC power plug to a proper outlet.
HOW TO OPERATE
Place a record on the turntable mat.
Depress the 33 or 45 speed select button to choose the desired speed.
Turn the power switch to the ON position, where the strobe illuminator will light up.
Remove the stylus protector if your cartridge has one attached.
Release the arm clamp.
Push the start / stop button and then the turntable will begin rotating.
Set the cueing lever to the up position.
Position the tone arm over the desired position on the record and push down the cueing
lever. Then the tone arm will slowly lower onto the record and play will start.
When play is over, raise the tone arm, move it to the arm rest and lock it with the arm
clamp.
How to suspend play
Setting the cueing lever to the up position will lift the tone arm and then the play stops.
How to use manual cueing
The cueing lever is used when you want to momentarily interrupt the tone arm. Move the
lever gently to the UP position to interrupt the playing and to the
DOWN position to
resume playing.
Keep the cueing lever in the down position when you are not using it.
Target Light ( Optional )
This unit is provided with the fixed target light for illuminating the stylus tip during play.
Remote control of Start / Stop ( Optional )
It allows the function of start / stop to be remote-controlled by a separate switch such as a
fader start.
* Note: If starting / stopping of the turntable is operated by both methods of pressing the
button on the unit and remote control, malfunctions may happen.

ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustments of horizontal zero (0) balance and stylus pressure
If your cartridge has a detachable stylus protector, remove it and be careful not to touch
the stylus tip.
Release the arm clamp and lift the tone arm from the arm rest.
Turn the counterweight clockwise or counter-clockwise until the tone arm is balanced
horizontally as floating freely. During adjusting the horizontal zero (0) balance, be
careful that the stylus tip does not contact the turntable mat or turntable base.
After the tone arm is horizontally zero (0) balanced temporarily, place the tone arm on
the arm rest and lock it with the arm clamp.
While rotating the stylus-pressure ring, hold the counterweight steady with one hand
until 0 on the ring aligns with center line on the tone arm rear shaft. Now the
adjustment of the horizontal zero (0) balance should be complete.
After adjusting the horizontal zero (0) balance, turn the balanced counterweight
counter-clockwise to get the proper stylus pressure as the cartridge manufacturer s
recommendation when it meets center line on the tone arm rear shaft.
Adjustment of anti-skating control
Set the anti-skate control to a position which corresponds to the adjust tracking force. If the
cartridge tracking force is 2 grams, the anti-skate control should also be set to 2.
Adjustment of the platter speed.
Set the arm lift lever to the up position.
Set the speed select switch to 33
Press start button, platter start revolving. Release the arm clip and tone arm toward the
turntable platter.
Observe the appropriate strip of strobe calibration dots from the strobe lens. The lower
strip is for 60HZ power supply. The upper one is for 50 Hz.
If the strobe dots appear to flow to the right which means the platter is revolving slower
than rated speed, turn the pitch control knob in + direction until the strobe dots so
appear to flow to the left which means the platter is revolving faster than rated speed,
turn the pitch control knob, in
direction until the strobe dots do appear to be
stationary.
After the platter speed has been adjusted correctly return the torn arm to the arm rest and
fix the arm clip.
