THIS TUNER/RECEIVER IS CAPABLE OF RECEIVING THE NEW AM STEREO BROADCASTS FROM THE AM BAND RADIO STATIONS.
HOWEVER LIKE MANY TUNERS AND RECEIVERS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET IT WILL REPRODUGE THIS AM STEREO
SIGNAL ONLY IN AM MONO, WHICH, IN EFFECT, IS OF NO LESSER QUALITY THAN YOUR EXISTING AM MONO TUNER/RECEIVER.

THE WIRES IN THIS MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN ACCOR-
DANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE.
BLUE: NEUTRAL
BROWN: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus
may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminals in your plug proceed as follows. The wire which is col-
oured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the ter-
minal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED.
Under no circumstances must either of the above wires be con-
nected to the earth terminal of a three pin plug.
{For amplifier and cassette deck)
Notes:
1. The AC power supply cords supplied with these units have
both the appliance connector and the AC plug at its ends. The
AC power supply cord is intended to be used with other
system components, such as tuner or etc.
2. If you need to connect this AC power supply cord to the
household AC outlet, follow the instruction below:
(1) Cut off and dispose the plug at the end where the caution
labe! is attached.
AC power supply cord AC plug
À
Appliance connector Caution label
(2) Fit a suitable plug to the AC power supply cord following
- the instruction indicated on the caution label.
Use a standard AC wall outlet
1. Use from an AC power source of high voltage, such as for
an air conditioner, is very dangerous.
There is the possibility that a fire might be caused by making
such a connection.
2. A DC power source cannot be used.
Be sure to check the power source carefully, especially on a
ship or other place where DC is used.
Grasp the plug when disconnecting the power
supply cord
1. Wet hands are dangerous.
A dangerous electric shock may result if the plug is touched by
wet hands.
& Never place heavy items on top of the power supply cord,
and never force it to bend sharply.
AC outlet on rear panel
(not equipped for some countries)
1. Any equipment connected here should have the specified
power consumption or less.
This outlet is exclusively for the connection of other audio
equipment, such as a tape deck. Be sure the power consump-
tion does not exceed the wattage specified near the AC outlet.
2. Never connect other electrical appliances, such as an iron
or toaster.
If appliances with a large power consumption are connected,
an accident might occur as a result of overheating.
Place the unit where It will be well ventilated
Place this unit at least 10 cm (4'") away from wall surfaces, etc.
Be careful that curtains and similar materials do not obstruct the
ventilation holes.
Avold places such as the following:
in direct sunlight or In other places where the temperature Is
high.
in places where there ls excessive vibration or humidity.
Such conditions might damage the cabinet and/or other compo-
nent parts and thereby shorten the unit's service life.
“Be sure to place the unit on a flat, level sur.
face.
If the surface is inclined, a malfunction may result.
¡Never attempt to repair or reconstruct this
unit
A serious electric shock might occur if this unit is repaired,
disassembled or reconstructed by unauthorized persons, or if the
internal parts are accidentally touched,
Take particular care If children are present
Never permit children to put anything, especially metal, inside
this unit. A serious electric shock or malfunction could occur if
articles such as coins, needles, screwdrivers, etc. are inserted
through the ventilation holes, etc. of this unit.
Tf water is spilled on the unit
Be extremely careful if water is spilled on the unit, because a fire
or serious electric shock might occur. Immediately disconnect
the power cord plug, and consult with your dealer.
|Avold spray-type Insecticides
Insecticides might cause cracks or “cloudiness” in the cabinet
and plastic parts of this unit. The gas used in such sprays might,
moreover, be ignited suddenly.
| Never use alcohol or paint thinner
These and similar chemicals should never be used, because they
might cause flaking or cloudiness of the cabinet finish.
|Disconnect the power supply cord if the unit
will not be used for a long time
if the unit is left for a long time with the power ON, this will not
only shorten its useful operation life, but may also cause other
troubles.
if trouble occurs
If, during operation, the sound Is interrupted or indicators no
longer illuminate, or if abnormal odor or smoke № detected,
immediately disconnect the power cord plug, and contact your
dealer or an Authorized Service Center.

C About the Direct-Operation Function )
The direct-operation function is a convenient function for chang-
ing from one performance to another by simply beginning the
performance to be heard nexi at that component, without the
necessity of pressing the corresponding input selector of this
unit.
e This function can be used only when connected to another
Technics component equipped with a control terminal. (Refer
to page 5.)
o Be sure to refer to the operating instructions for each compo-
nent to assure proper connection.
The sound source can be selected by using the following but-
tons on the components.
Listening to phono discs
Press the start button of the turntable.
7 Listening to radio broadcasts
Press the desired preset-channel button of the tuner.
Listening to tapes
Press the playback button of the cassette tape deck.
Listening to compact discs
Press the play button of the compact disc player.
Use the volume control to reduce the volume level, and then
switch OFF the power of each unit.

e For automatic presetting in areas where there are fewer than
28 FM stations, the remaining channels (through channel 28)
will be left unoccupied. The unoccupied channels can be filled
by using manual memory presettings.
o For AM broadcasts with extremely strong signal transmissions,
the frequency memorized may be slightly different than the
correct frequency. If this occurs, make a manual presetting.

Note:
The changing of the displayed frequency will be automatically
stopped (by the automatic tuning function) if a broadcast
station frequency is located during the tuning process. If
the frequency at which it stops is not close to the desired
frequency, repeat step 2 at the left.
4. After stopping at step 3, turn the tuning control so as to tune
to the desired frequency.
Note:

The Dolby noise-reduction system is a system designed to effec-
tively reduce the annoying high-frequency “hissing” noise typical-
ly heard from tapes if this system is not used. During recording,
the system functions to increase the level of the high-frequency
part of the sound, and then, during playback, that same portion is
weakened and returned to the previous level. This unit includes
two types of Dolby noise-reduction systems, the Dolby B-type and
C-type.
7 Dolby B-type nolse-reduction system
Noise is reduced to about one-third.
Use this system when playing back tapes recorded by the Dolby
noise-reduction system, such as prerecorded music tapes, etc.
Dolby C-type noise-reduction system
Noise is reduced to about one-tenth.
Use this system for the recording and playback of sound sources
that have a wide dynamic range and good tone quality, such as
FM broadcasts of live performances, etc., and for playing back
such tapes.

to clean the heads after approximately every 10 hours of use.
1) Switch the power of this unit to standby mode.
2) Press the eject button.

In order to maintain good sound quality during recording and
playback, it is recommended that the heads should be
demagnetized if distortion or poor sound quality persist after
cleaning the heads.
if the heads become magnetized, they could create noise in
recordings, loss of high-frequency response, or erasure of
valuable recordings. Several types of head demagnetizers are
available and may be purchased at local electronics supply
stores. Follow the instructions that are supplied with the device.
* Do not bring any type of metal objects or tools such as
magnetic screwdrivers in contact with the head assembly,
To clean this unit, use a soft, dry cloth.
For very dirty surfaces, dip a soft cloth in a weak soap-and-water
solution and wring well. After cleaning, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
Never use alcohol, paint thinner, benzine, or a chemically treated
cloth to clean this unit.
Such chemicals may damage the unit's finish.
