that is extremely stable.
Place the turntable sufficiently far from your speaker system so that it will not be affected by sound pressure or vibration.
CAUTION
If you need to lift or relocate the unit, make sure that two or more people will do so.
NOTICE
Do not attempt to rotate the feet. Otherwise, they might be damaged.

When necessary
Checking the speed
Care
To check and adjust the speed, follow the steps below.
Caring for this unit
1
Connect the strobe light to the STROBE
jack on the rear panel of the unit.
Wipe the unit with a soft dry cloth. If the finish of your
unit is piano black, we recommend using a cleaning cloth
made for pianos. Do not use chemicals such as benzine or
thinner, since they might damage the surface.
2
Place the stroboscopic disc on the
platter.
3
Press the speed button repeatedly to
select the rotation speed.
4
Press the START/STOP button.
5
6
The platter starts to rotate and the strobe light
turns on.
The tip of the record stylus is extremely delicate. Handle
it with care so that it is not damaged. If dust should
adhere to the tip of the stylus, use a soft pointed brush to
wipe it off starting at the base of the stylus and moving
toward the tip, or use a commercially-available cleaner
made for that purpose.
Note
Before you clean or perform maintenance on the unit or
stylus, be sure to turn off the power to the unit.
Shine the strobe light onto the
stroboscopic disc.
Caring for records
Use the PITCH ADJUST to adjust the
speed.
Rotate the PITCH ADJUST in the + or − direction
until the relevant herringbone ring on the
stroboscopic disc appears to be stationary.
Note
• You can use the PITCH ADJUST to adjust the speed
while the record is being played.
For adjustment steps and range, refer to the
“Specifications” section on page 26.
• The adjusted speed will be retained after the power to
the unit is turned off.
• The stroboscopic disc and strobe light included in the
package should be used only for this unit. When you
check the speed, use both of them together.
22
Caring for the record stylus
Dirt adhering to a record can cause skips or noise. Use a
commercially-available record cleaner to remove dirt.
Replacing the belt
In certain circumstances, the belt can wear out or break.
If this occurs, replace the belt. For a replacement belt,
contact your nearest authorized Yamaha dealer or service
center.
Note
Before you replace the belt, turn off the power to the unit
and connected devices, and disconnect the power cord of
the unit from the AC outlet.
