If an indoor antenna is used (either built into the set or installed
separately), never allow any part of the antenna to touch the metal
parts of other electrical appliances such as a lamp, TV set etc.
Any outdoor antenna must be located away from all power lines.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna is connected to your tuner or tuner-
preamplifier, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.
70-1984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of
the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
a. Use No. 10 AWG (5.3mm2) copper, No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2)
aluminium, No. 17 AWG (1.0mm2) copper-clad steel or bronze
wire, or larger, as a ground wire.
b. Secure antenna lead-in and ground wires to house with stand-off
insulators spaced from 4-6 feet (1.22 - 1.83 m) apart.
c. Mount antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where lead-
in enters house.
d. Use jumper wire not smaller than No.6 AWG (13.3mm2) copper,
or the equivalent, when a separate antenna-grounding electrode
is used. see NEC Section 810-21 (j).

CODE INSTRUCTIONS CONTAINED IN ARTICLE 810 - RADIO AND
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER: This reminder is
provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to
Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code that provides
guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies
that the ground cable ground shall be connected to the
grounding system of the building, as close to the point of
cable entry as practical.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
NOTES ON INSTALLATION.
Your NAD T742 should be placed on a firm, level surface. Avoid placing
the unit in direct sunlight or near sources of heat and damp.
Allow adequate ventilation. Do not place the unit on a soft surface like a
carpet. Do not place it in an enclosed position such a bookcase or cabinet
that may impede the air-flow through the ventilation slots.
Make sure the unit is switched off before making any connections.
The RCA sockets on your NAD T742 are color coded for convenience.
Red and white are Right and Left audio respectively, black for digital
input, yellow for Video Composite
Use high quality leads and sockets for optimum performance and
reliability. Audio RCA leads will function correctly for video signals,
although it is recommended to use dedicated video leads where possible.
For the digital inputs use dedicated leads for digital signal transfer. Ensure
that leads and connectors are not damaged in any way and all
connectors are firmly pushed home.
For best performance, use quality speaker leads of 16 gauge (1.5mm)
thickness or more.
If the unit is not going to be used for some time, disconnect the plug
from the AC socket.
Should water get into your NAD T742, shut off the power to the unit and
remove the plug from the AC socket. Have the unit inspected by a
qualified service technician before attempting to use it again.
Do not remove the cover, there are no user-serviceable parts inside.
Use a dry soft cloth to clean the unit. If necessary, lightly dampen the
cloth with soapy water. Do not use solutions containing benzol or other

that generate heat. It also should not be placed in temperatures less than 5°C (41°F) or greater then
3 Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even surface.
4 Ventilation - The unit should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper ventilation is
assured. allow 10 cm (4 in.) clearance from the rear and the top of the unit, and 5 cm (2 in.) from each
side. - Do not place on a bed, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings. - Do not
install the unit in a bookcase cabinet, or airtight rack where ventilation may be impeded.
5 Objects and liquid entry - Take care that objects or liquids do not get inside the unit through the
6 Carts and stands - When placed or mounted on a stand or cart, the unit should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the unit and cart to overturn or fall.
7 Condensation - Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
· The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot.
· The heating system has just been turned on.
· The unit is used in a very humid room.
· The unit is cooled by an air conditioner.
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function normally. Should this occur, leave the unit
for a few hours, then try to operate again.

WARNING! TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRONIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE
THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE
This product is manufactured to comply with the radio interference requirements of EEC DIRECTIVE
89/68/EEC and 73/23/EEC
1 Power Sources - Connect this unit only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and
as marked on the unit.
2 Polarization - As a safety feature, some units are equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can
only be inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug
into an outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call
a qualified service technician to service or replace the outlet. To avoid defeating the safety feature of
the polarized plug, do not force it into a power outlet.
3 AC power cord - When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull it out by the AC power plug. Do not
pull the cord itself.
· Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands, as this could result in fire or shock.
· Power cords should be routed to avoid being severely bent, pinched, or walked upon. Pay particular
attention to the cord from the unit to the power socket.
· Avoid overloading AC outlets and extension cords beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire
4 Extension cord - To help prevent electric shock, do not use a polarized AC power plug with an
extension cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the polarized plug can be completely inserted to
prevent exposure of the blades of the plug.
5 When not in use - Unplug the AC power cord from the AC outlet if the unit will not be used for
several months or more. When the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current continues to flow to
the unit, even when the power is turned off.
Modifications or adjustments to this product, which are not expressly approved by the manufacturer, may
void the user's right or authority to operate this product.
Clean the unit only as recommended in the Operating Instructions.
