PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving
when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating rubber material
specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However
certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may
cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To
prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small
self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers
everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the
product on fine wooden furniture.

AUTO PRESET Function
This model includes an Auto-Preset feature which you can use to automatically enter 10 strong FM and AM
stations in the tuner preset memory.
Note: This feature is useful if you live in a rural area with a limited number of stations. However if you live in
a major metropolitan area with many strong stations, do not use the Auto-Preset feature. It will memorize the
first 10 strong stations it encounters and these will probably not be the same 10 stations that you would
select if you were memorizing stations manually.
To use the Auto-Preset feature, turn the unit 'On', select the Tuner function and the desired band. Press and
hold the PROG/MEMORY button until the tuner display begins to move, then release the button. The tuner
will start searching up the band and it will automatically enter the first 10 strong stations on the selected
band in the 10 preset memories. The display will indicate which station is being entered in each of the 10
memories.
After the Auto-Preset feature memorizes 10 stations, the tuner returns to preset memory number 1.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Caring for Compact Discs
• Treat the disc carefully. Handle the disc only by its edges.
Never allow your fingers to come in contact with the shiny,
unprinted side of the 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).
• 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.
B E NZEN E
