warranty purposes, if guarantee card is supplied to you.
Precautions
Read carefully through this manual to familiarise yourself with this
high - quality sound system.
Make sure the rating of your household electricity supply matches that
shown on the back of the sound system.
Refer to this chapter and the "Installation/connections" chapter (page
18/19) to help you install and adjust your sound system.
Do not ...
... expose the sound system to high levels of humidity and heat, to avoid
the risk of fire and electric shock.
... connect the sound system to the power supply if you have just moved
it from a cold to a warm environment. This can result in condensation
inside the system and cause serious damage to the machine and
cassettes. Wait around two hours to allow it to reach room
temperature.
Make sure ...
... the system is placed on a stable, flat surface.
... you place the system where there is good ventilation all around.
... you clean the system only with a soft, line-free cloth, do not use
aggressive or alcohol-based cleaning agents.
... you disconnect the power supply if the system appears to be working
incorrectly, is making an unusual sound, has a strange smell, has
smoke emitting from it or liquids have got inside it.
Have a qualified technician check the system.
... you disconnect the power supply and aerial if you will not be using the
system for a long period or during a thunderstorm.
For your own safety!
There are no components in this sound system you can
service or repair yourself.
Do not open the case of the sound system. Only allow
qualified personnel to repair or service your set.
"Class 1 Laser Product" : Do not override the safety locks
around the laser unit of the CD player : Laser beams can
