IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read these operating instructions carefully before using the unit. Follow the safety instructions on the unit and the safety precautions listed
below. Keep these operating instructions handy for future reference.
Safety
1. Power source—Connect the unit to a power source of the type
described in these instructions or as marked on the unit.
2. Polarization—The unit is equipped with a polarized power plug
where one blade is wider than the other. This safety feature
ensures that the plug fits into your household AC outlet only one
way. If the plug doesn’t fit one way, try reversing it. If the plug
still doesn’t fit, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete
outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the safety purpose of the plug.
3. Power cord protection—Route the AC power supply cord so
that it will not be walked on or pinched by items placed on or
against it. Never take hold of the plug or cord with wet hands.
Always grasp the plug body firmly when connecting and
disconnecting it.
4. Overloading—When connecting the AC power supply cord, be
careful not to overload the household AC outlet, extension cord,
or outlet from any other device as this can result in fire or electric
shock.
5. Nonuse periods—Turn the unit off when it is not in use. Unplug
the unit from the household AC outlet if it is not to be used for a
long time. Unplug the unit during lightning storms.
6. Attachments and accessories—Use only the attachments and
accessories recommended in these operating instructions.
4. Outdoor antenna grounding—If you connect an outdoor
antenna, ground the antenna system to protect against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1990, provides information
about grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding
of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode. Refer to this diagram.

from the rear of the unit. To prevent the risk of electric shock or
fire due to overheating ensure curtains and other materials do
not obstruct the unit’s ventilation.
2. Foreign material—Ensure objects and liquids do not get into
the unit. Avoid exposing the unit to excessive smoke, dust,
mechanical vibration, and shock.
3. Magnetism—Situate the unit away from equipment and devices
that generate strong magnetic fields.
4. Stacking—Do not place heavy objects on top of this unit.
5. Surface—Place the unit on a flat, level surface.
6. Carts and stands—Use the unit only with carts
and stands recommended by the manufacturer.
Move carts with care. Sudden stops, excessive
force, and uneven surfaces can cause carts to
overturn.
7. Wall and ceiling mounting—Do not mount the unit on walls or
ceilings unless specified in the instructions.
Environment
1. Water and moisture—Do not use the unit near water, such as
near a bathtub or swimming pool. Avoid damp basements.
2. Heat—Situate the unit away from heat sources, such as
radiators.
Do not situate where temperatures fall below 5°C (41°F) or rise
above 35°C (95°F).
3. Power lines—Take care when setting up an outdoor antenna
that it is not near overhead power lines, electric lights, or
electrical circuits, and that there is no danger of the antenna
falling on power lines, electric lights, or electrical circuits. When
installing an outdoor antenna, take extreme care not to touch
such power lines or circuits, as contact with them can be fatal.

Listening caution
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES ONLY IN THE U.S.A.
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.
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.
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.
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.
CAUTION!
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.
