Part 15 for Class “B” digital devices. Compliance with these
requirements provides a reasonable level of assurances
that your use of this product in a residential environment
will not result in harmful interference with other electronic
devices. This equipment generates/uses radio frequencies
and, if not installed and used according to the instructions
found in the owner’s manual, may cause interference
harmful to the operation of other electronic devices.
Compliance with FCC regulations does not guarantee that
interference will not occur in all installations. If this product
is found to be the source of interference, which can be
determined by turning the unit “Off” and “On”, please try
to eliminate the problem by using one of the following
measures:
6. Do not use force on switches, knobs or cords. When
moving the unit, first turn the unit off. Then gently
disconnect the power plug and the cords connecting to
other equipment. Never pull the cord itself.
7. Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents:
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.

storm.
In the case of radio or TV interference, relocate/reorient
the antenna. If the antenna lead-in is 300-ohm ribbon lead,
change the lead-in to coaxial type cable.

equipment such as tuners or receivers. Move the
system farther away from such equipment if
interference is observed.

Listening for a Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now
it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic
Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it
at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to a higher volume of sound. So what sounds
“normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for
a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud
noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for
your protection.
