Placement
Avoid placing the unit in areas of :
direct sunlight
high temperature
high humidity
excessive vibration
uneven surfaces (Place the unit on a flat level surface.)
Such conditions might damage the cabinet and/or other component
parts and thereby shorten the unit's service life.
To protect the unit against sound distortion and acoustical effects,
please place the unit at least 15 cm away from wall surfaces etc.
PTE
Never place heavy items on top of the unit or the AC power cord.
e It is very dangerous to use an AC power source of high voltage
such as for an air conditioner.
A fire might be caused by such a connection.
e ADC power source can not be used.
Be sure to check the power source carefully, especially if on a ship
or other place where DC is used.
Power cord | protection
e Avoid cuts, scratches or poor connection of the AC power cord, as
this may result in fire or electric shock.
Excessive bending, pulling or slicing of the cord should also be
avoided.
Do not pull on the cord when you are disconnecting the power, as
this could cause an electric shock. Grasp the plug firmly when you
disconnect the power supply.
Never touch the plug with wet hands or a serious electric shock
could result.
Foreign materials
e Ensure that no foreign objects, such as needles, coins, screwdriv-
ers etc., accidentally fall into the unit.
Otherwise, a serious electric shock or malfunction could occur.
e Be extremely careful about spilling water or liquid on/into the unit,
as a fire or electric shock could occur.
(Disconnect the power plug and contact your dealer immediately if
this occurs.)
e Avoid spraying insecticides onto the unit as they contain flammable
gases which can be ignited.
e Insecticides, alcohol, paint thinner and similar chemicals should
never be used to clean the unit as they can cause flaking or
cloudiness to the cabinet finish.
® Never attempt to repair, disassemble or reconstruct the unit if there
seems to be a problem.
A serious electric shock could result if you ignore this precaution-
ary measure.
e |f a problem occurs during operation (the sound is interrupted,
indicators fail to light up, smoke is detected, etc.) contact your
dealer or Authorized Service Center immediately.
e Disconnect the power supply if the unit will not be used for a long
time. Otherwise the operation life could be shortened.

(For United Kingdom)
(“EB” area code model only)
For your safety, please read the following text carefully.
This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin
mains plug for your safety and convenience.
A 5-ampere fuse is fitted in this plug.
Should the fuse need to be replaced please ensure that
the replacement fuse has a rating of 5-ampere and that
it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark <> or the BSI mark Y on the
body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover you must
ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced.
If you lose the fuse cover the plug must not be used
until a replacement cover is obtained.
A replacement fuse cover can be purchased from your

If a new plug is to be fitted please observe the wiring
code as shown below.
If in any doubt please consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue: Neutral, Brown: Live.
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows:
The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured
Black or Blue.
The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured
Brown or Red. |
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO
THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH
THE LETTER E, BY THE EARTH SYMBOL + OR
COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN/YELLOW.
THIS PLUG IS NOT WATERPROOF—KEEP DRY.
Before use

Battery installation
Use of batteries
e Do not mix old and new batteries, or batteries of different types
(manganese and alkaline, etc.).
e Never subject batteries to excessive heat or flame; do not attempt
to disassemble them; and be sure they are not short-circuited.
e If the remote control is not to be used for a long period of time,
remove the batteries and store them in a cool, dark place.
e Do not attempt to recharge alkaline or manganese batteries.
e Do not use rechargeable type batteries.
Correct method of use
| Operation notes |
® Do not place obstacles between the remote control signal sensor
and remote control unit.
e Do not expose the remote control signal sensor to direct sunlight
or to the bright light of an invertor fluorescent light.
e Take care to keep the remote control signal sensor and end of the
remote control unit free from dust.
e |f this system is installed in a rack with glass doors, the glass
doors' thickness or colour might make it necessary to use the remote
control a shorter distance from the system.
To prevent damage |
e Never place heavy items on top of the unit.
e Do not disassemble or reconstruct the unit.
e Do not spill water or other liquids into the unit.
Place the speakers so that the super woofer is on the outside.
e Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the system for
proper ventilation.
e To avoid damage to the speakers, do not touch the speakers
cones if you have taken the nets off.
Caution
e Use the speakers only with the recommended system.
Failure to do so may lead to damage to the amplifier and/or
the speakers, and may result in the risk of fire.
Consult a qualified service person if damage has occurred
or if you experience a sudden change in performance.
e Do not attach these speakers to walls or ceilings.

Basic connections (for supplied accessorie
e Plug the AC power cord into a household AC outlet only after all
other connections have been made.
e To prepare the AM loop antenna wire and speaker cords, twist the
vinyl cover tip and puil off.
Connect the FM indoor antenna.
Tape the antenna to a wall or column, in a position where radio
signals are received with the least amount of interference.
Except for Australia and New Zealand
The configuration of the FM antenna terminal is different.
For best reception sound quality:
An FM outdoor antenna is recommended. (See page 7.)
Connect the AM loop antenna.
After attaching the antenna, turn on the system and tune in a
broadcast station. Then, turn the antenna to the angle of best
reception and least interference.
Connect the front speaker cables.
Connect each end of the speaker cables to the terminal lever of
the same colour,
e Use only the supplied front speakers.
The combination of the main unit and front speakers provide
the best sound. Using other front speakers can damage the
unit and sound quality will be negatively affected.
® То prevent damage to circuitry, never short-circuit positive (+)
and negative (—) speaker wires.
Connect the AC power cord.
(FOR UNITED KINGDOM ONLY)
BE SURE TO READ THE CAUTION FOR THE
AC MAINS LEAD ON PAGE 4 BEFORE
CONNECTION.
Insertion of connector
Even when the connector is perfectly inserted, depending on
the type of inlet used, the front part of the connector may jut out

Run 5 to 12 m of vinyl-covered wire horizontally along a window or
other convenient location.
When the unit is not in use, disconnect the outdoor antenna to prevent
possible damage that may be caused by lightning. Never use an
outdoor antenna during an electrical storm.

be connected.
e This example shows how to connect an analog player with the
PHONO OUT/LINE OUT switch.
e When units other than those described below are to be connected,
please consult with your audio dealer.
e Only an analog player with a built-in phono equalizer can be con-
nected. |
e Setthe switch to the “LINE OUT” position at the back of the analog
player.
