Where to Install Your
Mini-Compact System
Inserting Remote Control Batteries
GB
To take full advantage of your new mini-compact system, follow these installation instructions before connecting the unit.
Install the system on a flat, stable surface.
Never place this unit on carpeting.
Never place this unit in an outdoor area.
Maintain an open space of approximately 6 inches (15 cm) on the
sides and rear of the system, for ventilation purposes.
Make sure that you have enough room to open the compact disc
compartment easily.
Place the loudspeakers at a reasonable distance on either side of
the system to ensure good stereo sound.
Direct the loudspeakers towards the listening area.
For optimum performance, make sure that both speakers are
placed at an equal distance above the floor.
Insert or replace remote control batteries when you:
Purchase the mini-compact system
Find that the remote control is no longer operating correctly
When replacing the batteries, use a new set of batteries and
never mix alkaline and manganese batteries.
1
Place your thumb on the position marked
on the battery compartment cover (rear of the remote control) and push the cover in the
direction of the arrow.
2
Insert two AAA, LR03 or equivalent batteries, taking care to respect
the polarities:
+ on the battery against + on the remote control
– on the battery against - on the remote control
3
Replace the cover by sliding it back until it clicks into position.
Connecting the Loudspeakers
The loudspeaker connector terminals are located on the rear
of the system.
There are four terminals on the system:
Two for the left speaker (marked L)

Connecting the AM (MW)/LW Aerial
GB
The AM aerial (for long and medium waves) can be:
Placed on a stable surface
Fixed to the wall (you must first remove the base)
The AM aerial connector terminals are located on the rear of the system and are
marked AM .
To avoid noise interference, check that the loudspeaker wires do not run
close to the aerial wires.
Always keep them at least 2 inches (5 cm) away.
Connecting the FM Aerial
How to connect a COAXIAL TYPE aerial.
Connect a 75Ω antenna to the FM antenna terminal.
Plug the connector on the FM aerial supplied into the coaxial socket (75Ω) marked FM on the rear of the system.
Follow the instructions given on Page 13 to tune into a radio station, and determine the best position for the aerial.
If reception is poor, you may need to install an outdoor aerial.
To do so, connect an outdoor FM aerial to the FM socket on the rear of the system using a 75Ω coaxial cable (not supplied).
Connecting the SW Aerial (option)
How to connect a WIRE TYPE aerial.
Spread the SW aerial out and attach the ends to a wall,in the position
providing the best reception.
If reception is poor (e.g. distance from transmitter too great,walls blocking
the radio waves,etc.),install an outdoor aerial.

Cleaning Your Mini-Compact
System
Safety Precautions
GB
The following diagrams illustrate the precautions to be taken
when using or moving your mini-compact system.
To obtain the best possible results from your mini-compact
system, you must clean the following elements regularly:
The outer casing
The compact disc player
The cassette players (heads, rollers and drive capstans)
Always unplug the system from the wall outlet:
Before cleaning it
If you are not going to be using it for a long time
Outer Casing
Clean the outer casing regularly using a soft cloth and a light detergent. Do
not use abrasive powders, liquids or aerosol cleaners. Never let any liquids
get into the system.
Ambient operating conditions:
Ambient temperature
5°C-35°C
Humidity
10-75%
Do not expose the unit to direct sun
radiation or other heat sources.
This could lead to overheating and
malfunction of the unit.

If you will not be using the remote control for a long time,
remove the batteries to prevent corrosion.
Although your system is very hard-wearing, it should not be
used in an excessively dusty environment or subjected to
shocks or extreme heat (close to heating appliances or in
direct sunlight, etc.).
If the unit emits an unpleasant odor when in use, unplug it
from the main supply and contact the after-sales service.

Precautions When Using Compact
Discs
Handle your compact discs with care. Always hold them by
the edges to avoid leaving fingerprints on the shiny surface.
When you have finished playing a compact disc, always put it
back in its case.
Do not fix paper or adhesive tape to the discs and do not write
on the label.

Check that the tape in the cassette is sufficiently taught.
To prevent erasing a cassette that you wish to keep, remove the safety
tab on the upper edge of the cassette. To record a cassette, where the
tab has been broken, simply cover the opening with adhesive tape.
When you have finished playing a cassette, always put it back in its case.
Store your cassettes in a clean place, out of direct sunlight, where
they will not be exposed to high temperatures.
