USING THE UNIT SAFELY

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PREVENTION OF FIRE,

ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS

About and Notices.

Used for instructions intended to alert the user to the risk of death or severe injury should the unit be used improperly.

Used for instructions intended to alert the user to the risk of injury or material damage should the unit be used improperly.

*Material damage refers to damage or other adverse effects caused with respect to the home and all its furnishings, as well to domestic animals or pets.

※About the Symbols

The symbol alerts the user to important instructions or warnings. The specific meaning of the symbol is determined by the design contained within the triangle.

In the case of the symbol at left, it is used for general cautions, warnings, or alerts to danger.

The symbol alerts the user to things that must be carried out. The specific thing that must be done is indicated by the design contained within the circle.

In the case of the symbol at left, it means that the power-cord plug must be unplugged from the outlet.

The symbol alerts the user to items that must never be carried out (are forbidden). The specific thing that must not be done is indicated by the design contained within the circle. In the case of the symbol at left, it means that the unit must never be disassembled.

Please connect the power plug with ground protected power outlet.

Do not open (or modify in any way) the unit or its AC adapter.

Do not attempt to repair the unit, or replace parts within it (except when this manual provides specific instructions directing you to do so).

Never use or store the unit in places that are: Subject to temperature extremes (e.g., direct sunlight in an enclosed vehicle, near a heating duct, on top of heat-generating equipment); or are damp (e.g., baths, washrooms, on wet floors); or are humid; or are exposed to rain; or are dusty; or are subject to high levels of vibration.

When using the unit with a rack or stand, the rack or stand must be carefully placed so it is level and sure to remain stable. If not using a rack or stand, you still need to make sure that any location you choose for placing the unit provides a level surface that will properly support the unit, and keep it from wobbling.

Be sure to use only the AC adapter supplied with the unit. Also, make sure the line voltage at the installation matches the input voltage specified on the AC adapter’s body. Other AC adapters may use a different polarity, or be designed for a different voltage, so their use could result in damage, malfunction, or electric shock.

Use only the attached power-supply cord. Also, the supplied power cord must not be used with any other device.

Do not excessively twist or bend the power cord, nor place heavy objects on it. It can damage the cord, producing severed elements and short circuits. Damaged cords may cause fire and shock hazards!

This unit, either alone or in combination with an amplifier and headphones or speakers, may be capable of producing sound levels that could cause permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of time at a level that is uncomfortable.

If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should immediately stop using the unit, and consult an audiologist.

Do not allow any objects (e.g., flammable material, coins, pins); or liquids of any kind

(water, soft drinks, etc.) to penetrate the unit.

Immediately turn the power off and remove the AC adapter from the outlet when:

a. The AC adapter, the power-supply cord, or the plug has been damaged.

b. Smoke or unusual odor occurs.

c. Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been spilled onto the unit.

d. The unit has been exposed to rain (or otherwise has become wet).

e. The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change

in performance.

In Households with small children, an adult should provide supervision until the child is capable of following all the rules essential for the safe operation of the unit.

Protect the unit from strong impact. (Do not drop it!)

Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to share an outlet with an unreasonable number of other devices. Be especially careful when using extension cords-the total power used by all devices you have connected to the extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the power rating (watts/amperes) for the extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the insulation on the cord to heat up and eventually melt trough.

The unit and the AC adapter should be located so their location or position does not interfere with their proper ventilation.

Always grasp only the plug on the AC adapter cord when plugging into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.

At regular intervals, you should unplug the AC adapter and clean it by using a dry cloth to wipe all dust and other accumulations away from its prongs. Also, disconnect the power plug from the power outlet whenever the unit is to remain unused for an extended period of time. Any accumulation of dust between the power plug and the power outlet can result in poor insulation and lead to fire.

Try to prevent cords and cables from becoming entangled. Also, all cords and cables should be placed so they are out of reach of children.

Never climb on top of, nor place heavy objects on the unit.

Never handle the AC adapter or its plugs with wet hands when plugging into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.

Before moving the unit, disconnect the AC adapter and all cords coming from external devices.

Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power and unplug the AC adapter from the outlet.

Whenever you suspect the possibility of lightning in your area, disconnect the AC adapter from the outlet.

Keep any caps you may remove and the included wing bolts in a safe place out of children’s reach, so there is no chance of them being swallowed accidentally.

Power supply

● Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being used by an electrical

appliance that is controlled by an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,

microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a motor. Depending on the way

in which the electrical appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit to

malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not practical to use a separate

electrical outlet, connect a power supply noise filter between this unit and the

electrical outlet.

● The AC adapter will begin to generate heat after long hours of consecutive use. This

is normal, and is not a cause for concern.

● Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to all units. This will

help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speakers or other devices.

Placement

● Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing large power

transformers) may induce hum. To alleviate the problem, change the orientation of

this unit; or move it farther away from the source of interference.

● This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not use this device

in the vicinity of such receivers.

● Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such as cell phones, are

operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or

initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience such problems, you

should relocate such wireless devices so they are at a greater distance from this unit,

or switch them off.

● Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that radiate heat,

leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.

Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.

● When moved from one location to another where the temperature and/or humidity is

very different, water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage or

malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in this condition. Therefore,

before using the unit, you must allow it to stand for several hours, until the

condensation has completely evaporated.

Maintenance

● For everyday cleaning, wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that has been

slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with

a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with

a soft, dry cloth.

● Never use benzene, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid the possibility

of discoloration and/or deformation.

Other attentions

● Please be aware that the unit’s memory can be irretrievably lost as a result of a

malfunction, or the improper operation of the unit.

● Please take care when using the unit’s buttons or other controls, and when using its

jacks and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.

● Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.

● When connecting/disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector itself-never pull on

the cable. This way you will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal

elements.

● To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s volume at reasonable levels.

You may prefer to use headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about those

around you.

● Since sound vibrations can be transmitted through floors and walls to a greater

degree than expected, take care not to allow such sound to become a nuisance to

neighbors, especially at night and when using headphones.

● When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box (including padding) that it

came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.

● Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incorporate

resistors for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound

level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear.
