Thank you for purchasing the JVC CD Portable System.
We hope it will be a valued addition to your home as well as to your outdoor life, giving you years of enjoyment.
Be sure to read this instruction manual carefully before operating your new stereo system.
In it you will find all the information you need to set up and use the system.
If you have a query that is not answered by the manual, please contact your dealer.
Here are some of the things that make your System both powerful and simple to use.
s The controls and operations have been redesigned to make them very easy to use, freeing you to just enjoy the music.
With JVC's COMPU PLAY you can turn on the System and automatically start the Radio, CD Player, or Cas-
sette Deck with a single touch. (When power is supplied from AC)
s Sound effects; BEAT, POP, and CLEAR.
s A 30-station preset capability (15 FM and 15 AM) in addition to auto-seek and manual tuning.
s A user-friendly timer lets you fall asleep to music.
Basic information that is the same for many different functions - e.g. setting the volume - is given in the section `Common Operations',
and not repeated under each function.
The names of buttons/controls are written in all capital letters: e.g. TUNER BAND.
System functions are written with an initial capital letter only: e.g. Normal Play.
Use the table of contents to look up specific information you require.
We've enjoyed making this manual for you, and hope it serves you in enjoying the many features built into your System.
1. When carrying the Unit
Do not raise or lower the carrying handle of the Unit with the telescopic antenna extended in order to avoid damaging the antenna.
2. Where to place the Unit
Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold (between 5°C/41°F and 35°C/95°F).
Leave sufficient distance between the Unit and a TV.
Do not use the Unit in a place subject to vibrations.
3. Power cord
Do not handle the power cord with wet hands!
Some power (2.6 W) is always consumed as long as the power cord is connected to the wall outlet.
