INFORMATION (For Canada)
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio
noise emissions from digital apparatus as set out in the
interference-causing equipment standard entitled "Digital
Apparatus", ICES-003 of the Department of Communications.
THE FOLLOWING NOTICES ARE APPLIED ONLY FOR THE U.S.A.:
Cautions
Listening precautions
Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play.
If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discon-
tinue use.
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a
traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use
in potentially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or earphones are an open-air type de-
signed to let you hear outside sounds, don't turn up the volume
so high that you can't hear what's around you.
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 BE-
FORE 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.
Rechargeable batteries
· Rechargeable batteries (not supplied) can be used.
· To use the rechargeable batteries, follow the instruction manual
attached to the rechargeable batteries and charger (not sup-
plied).
Dry cell batteries
To prevent damage to the batteries and electrolyte leakage, heed
the following points.
· Align the , and . polarities properly when inserting the bat-
teries.
· Do not mix different types or makers of batteries or old and
new batteries.
· Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the unit for a
long period of time.
· Do not throw batteries into a fire, and do not short-circuit, dis-
assemble or subject them to excessive heat.
· Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries.
Carrying dry cell batteries around
When putting dry cell batteries in a pocket or bag, ensure that no
other metal objects such as a necklace are placed together with
them. Contact with metal may cause short-circuiting which, in
turn, may cause a fire.
AC adaptor
· Handle the AC adaptor carefully. Improper handling is dan-
gerous.
· Do not touch it with wet hands.
· Do not place heavy objects on top of it.
· Do not forcibly bend it.
· Be sure to connect only the specified AC adaptor with the unit.
· Disconnect the AC adaptor from the power outlet if the unit is
not going to be used for a long time.
Unit
No altering or remodeling
This can cause malfunctioning.
No dropping or strong impacts
This may damage the unit.
Locations to be avoided
Avoid using the unit in the following locations since they can
cause malfunctioning.
1. Bathrooms and other moisture-prone places.
2. Warehouses and other dusty places
3. Very hot places near heating appliances, etc.
Do not leave the unit exposed to direct sunlight for
long periods of time
This may deform or discolor the cabinet and may also cause
malfunctioning.
When purchasing AC adaptor /
AC plug adaptor
Be absolutely sure to purchase the AC adaptor designed espe-
cially for this unit.
AC adaptor: AA-R4513 (for the U.S.A. and Canada)
AA-R4518 (for multi voltage area)
AC plug adaptor: QAM0060-001 (for multi voltage area)

Cautions
Rechargeable batteries
· Rechargeable batteries (not supplied) can be used.
· To use the rechargeable batteries, follow the instruction manual
attached to the rechargeable batteries and charger (not sup-
plied).
Dry cell batteries
To prevent damage to the batteries and electrolyte leakage, heed
the following points.
· Align the , and . polarities properly when inserting the bat-

However, this may cause a slight interruption in the sound be-
cause the disc's rotational speed changes.
