THE FOLLOWING APPLIES ONLY IN THE U.S.A.
CAUTION:
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
¡Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
¡Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
¡Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
¡Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician
for help.
FCC Caution: To assure continued compliance, use only the
provided power supply cord with external mounted ferrite
core.
Any unauthorized changes or modifications to this
equipment would void the user’s authority to operate this
device.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this
device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
Listening caution
EST. 1924
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement
your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you
to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe
level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear
without annoying blaring or distortion–and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise.
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:
¡Set the dial and leave it there.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK OR PRODUCT DAMAGE, DO NOT
EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO RAIN,
MOISTURE, DRIPPING OR SPLASHING AND
THAT NO OBJECTS FILLED WITH LIQUIDS,
SUCH AS VASES, SHALL BE PLACED ON
THE APPARATUS.
Marking sign is located on bottom of the unit.
CAUTION!
Before use
WARNING:
DO NOT INSTALL, OR PLACE THIS UNIT, IN A
BOOKCASE, BUILT-IN CABINET OR IN ANOTHER
CONFINED SPACE. ENSURE THE UNIT IS WELL
VENTILATED. TO PREVENT RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
OR FIRE HAZARD DUE TO OVERHEATING, ENSURE
THAT CURTAINS AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS DO
NOT OBSTRUCT THE VENTILATION VENTS.
CAUTION
Do not place anything on top of this unit or block the heat
radiation vents in any way. In particular, do not place tape
decks or CD/DVD players on this unit as heat radiated from
it can damage your software.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing
damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for
a lifetime.

Surround speakers (D left E right)
Place slightly behind the seating area, about one meter (3 feet) higher
than ear level.
The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a
reasonable distance from the TV.
Note that some experimentation can yield the smoothest low frequency
performance. Placement near a corner can increase the apparent output
level, but can result in unnatural bass.
