Fit the turntable and turntable mat.
Put the turntable on the center spindle and then lay the mat
on top.
•Be very careful when putting the turntable on the main unit.
The magnet on the bottom of the turntable is finely adjusted
and sharp contact can cause it to move and lead to poor
operation. Ensure the magnet remains free from dust and
iron particles.
•Do not adjust the screws attaching the magnet to the turntable. The rated performance of the unit cannot be guaranteed if the magnet is moved.

•Never use alcohol, paint thinner, or benzine to clean this unit.
•Before using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions that
came with the cloth carefully.
Do not wipe the dust cover while playing a record.
This can cause static electricity. This static can cause the tone arm
to be attracted towards the cover.
Thoroughly clean dust off the stylus and record.
•Use a soft brush to clean the stylus. Brush from the base to the tip.
•Use a good quality record cleaner to keep your records clean.
Head shell
terminals
Wipe the head shell terminals occasionally.
Use a soft cloth. Turn the amplifier off before fitting or removing the
head shell.
•Damage to your speakers can occur if the head shell is moved
while the volume is turned up.
•Leave the stylus cover on while handling the head shell to prevent
damaging the stylus.
Oiling the center spindle.
Apply 2 or 3 drops every 2000 hours of operation. Use SFW0010 oil
(not included).
