speaker may be distorted. Discontinue use,
as malfunction may result.
Be sure to lower the volume of the source
device (PC, TV, etc.) and turn off the
system when removing the audio cable
from the source device. If you remove the
audio cable while the source device (PC,
TV, etc.) is working, the equipment or your
ears may be damaged by unexpected loud
sound.
Listening to the

If a mobile phone is connected to the
system, the system may be turned on
unintentionally by noise or an incoming
call. When connecting a mobile phone,
turn on/off the system manually by the
 button.
The
system may not turn off automatically

because of received noise, depending on
the source device.
 If no device is connected, the system may
not turn off automatically, or it may turn
on unintentionally.
The beginning of the input signal may not
be heard, depending on the input signal
level.
Until the system receives an input signal
and turns on automatically, no sound will

system do not use any other AC
power adaptor.
Polarity of the plug
 Plug the AC power adaptor into a
nearby AC output. In the case of a
problem, unplug from the AC outlet
immediately.
 Do not place the AC power adaptor
on a bookshelf or in a confined
place, such as a cabinet.
 To avoid fire or electric shock do not
use the AC power adaptor in a place
subject to liquid or moisture.
Furthermore, do not place liquidfilled vessels, such as vases, etc., on
the AC power adaptor.
 The supplied AC power cord is only
for this system. Do not use with any
other device.
 Check that both this system and the
source device are turned on.
 Turn up the volume of the system.
 Turn up the volume of the source
device as high as possible before the
onset of distortion. For details on
volume adjustment, refer to the
operating instructions supplied with
the device.
 Make sure all connections have been
correctly made. If the audio cable
(stereo mini) (supplied) is connected
to the audio out jack, the sound level
may be low. Connect to the
headphones (stereo-mini) jack, in
this case.
 If the mute function of the volume
adjustment of your PC is set, cancel
it.
 Check if headphones are connected.
If they are, disconnect them.
 Disconnect the audio cable from the
system and PC or source device,
then firmly reconnect.
 Ensure that your PC sound balance
is set to the center.
 If the source device is connected to
both the INPUT 1 (Stereo mini) and
INPUT 2 jacks, volume may be
attenuated. In this case, disconnect
either one of the jacks.
Distorted sound
 Turn down the volume of the source
device to the point where the sound
is no longer distorted. For details on
volume adjustment, refer to the
operating instructions supplied with
the device.
 If the source device has a bass boost
function, set it to off.
 Turn down the volume of the
system.
 Make sure all connections have been
correctly made. If an audio cable for
the audio out jack (supplied) is
connected to the headphones
(stereo-mini) jack, sound may be
distorted. Connect to the audio out
jack, in this case.
There is hum or noise in the
system output.
 Make sure all connections have been
correctly made.
 Make sure no audio devices are
positioned too close to the TV set.
There is noise in the sound
from a PC.
If the source device is a PC, connect
the audio cable (stereo mini)
(supplied) to the headphone jack of the
main unit of the PC, not to the
monitor of the PC.
The sound comes through only
one satellite speaker.
If connecting the system to the
monaural jack of a source device, the
sound may come through only one
satellite speaker.
When connected to a TV, the
system does not turn off
automatically.
If the audio cable (stereo mini)
(supplied) is connected to the
headphone jack of the TV, the Auto
Power function may not work
depending on the TV model. In this
case, disconnect the audio cable, and
then connect the audio out jack of the
TV and the INPUT 2 jack of this
system with the audio cable (supplied).
