Unpacking
Protect Your Furniture
Check that you have the following items:
• Main unit (1).
• Remote control (1).
• Audio/Video cable (4 feet x 1).
• Owner’s Manual (1).
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent
the product from moving when you operate the controls.
These 'feet' are made from non-migrating rubber material
specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on
your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture
polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause
the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber
residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your
furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small
self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and
home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these
pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the
product on fine wooden furniture.
Inserting Batteries into the Remote
Control
You can control the system using the supplied remote.
Insert two "AA" batteries by matching the + and - on the
batteries with the markings in the battery compartment.
When using the remote, point it at the remote sensor on
the front panel of this system.
Notes:
• Do not leave the remote in an extremely hot or humid
place.
• Do not use a new battery with an old one.
• Do not drop any foreign object into the remote casing,
particularly when replacing the batteries.
• Do not expose the remote sensor to direct sunlight or
lighting apparatuses. Doing so may cause a malfunction.
• If you do not use the remote for an extended period of
time, remove the batteries to avoid possible damage
from battery leakage and corrosion.
• Use only the size and type of batteries specified.
• Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the
batteries as indicated in the battery compartment.
Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.
Ÿ Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g.
Alkaline and Carbon-zinc) or old batteries with fresh
ones.

Important Information
The DVD player in this system can play normal audio
CDs, recordable CDs (CD-Rs), re-writable CD's (CD-RWs).
However, because of the non-compatibility of certain
ripping/burning software used to record CDs, and the
quality of the blank discs used for recording, 100%
playability of CD-RW cannot be guaranteed. This is not an
indication of any problem with your system.
• When a normal audio CD, a CD-R, or a CD-RW disc is
