Dear Customer:
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. This manufacturer 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 higher volumes 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.
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.
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.

MP3 FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Please read before playing an MP3 CD.
Does the unit support packet write CD-RW?
Yes it can. You can add or delete MP3 files without
reformatting. It appears like a PC hard drive.
Can the unit read regular music CDs?
Yes it can. However you can not mix MP3s and WAV files on
the same CD. If you do this your Portable MP3 CD Player will
play only the MP3 files.
Does the unit have Electronic Skip Protection built-in?

mill or drive on a bumpy road.
Can I use the MP3 extension for non-audio data files?
No, this may result in serious malfunction and harmful noise
interference.
Can I mix MP3 files with other file types on the CDR?
Yes, but your Portable MP3 CD Player will ignore those files
and read only the MP3 files on the CDR.
Does the unit support multi-session CDRs?
If the MP3 CD is not finalized, you can burn a new group of
MP3 files until the CD is full.
Does the unit support subdirectories (subfolders)?
Yes, the unit can read MP3 files from subfolders.
What appears on the display when playing back MP3 CDs?
The album, title and artist (if set when MP3 was recorded).

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Caring for Compact Discs
• Treat the compact disc carefully. Handle the
compact compact disc only by its edges. Never
allow your fingers to come in contact with the shiny,
unprinted side of the compact compact disc.
• Do not attach adhesive tape, stickers, etc. to
the compact disc label.
• Clean the compact disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use
detergents or abrasive cleaners to clean the compact disc. If necessary, use a
CD cleaning kit.
• If a compact disc skips or gets stuck on a section of the compact disc, it is
probably dirty or damaged (scratched).
B ENZEN E
C LE A N E R
• When cleaning the compact disc, wipe in straight lines from the center of the
compact disc to the outer edge of the compact disc. Never wipe in circular
motions.
• Compact discs should be stored in their cases after each use to avoid
damage.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, high
temperatures, or dust, etc. Prolonged exposure or extreme temperatures can
warp the compact disc.
• Do not stick or write anything on either side of the compact disc. Sharp writing
instruments, or the ink may damage the surface.
Cleaning the unit
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, disconnect your unit from the AC power
source when cleaning.
• The finish on your unit may be cleaned with a dust cloth and cared for as other
furniture. Use caution when cleaning and wiping the plastic parts.
• Mild soap and a damp cloth may be used on the front panel.
