O Read all of these Instructions.
O Save these Instructions for later use.
O Follow all Warnings and Instructions marked on the audio
1) Read Instructions -- All the safety and operating instructions should
be read before the product is operated.
2) Retain Instructions -- The safety and operating instructions should
be retained for future reference.
3) Heed Warnings -- All warnings on the product and in the operating
instructions should be adhered to.
4) Follow Instructions -- All operating and use instructions should be
5) Cleaning -- Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning.
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for
6) Attachments -- Do not use attachments not recommended by the
product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
7) Water and Moisture -- Do not use this product near water _ for
example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub; in a
wet basement; or near a swimming pool; and the like.
8) Accessories -- Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the product. Use only with a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or
sold with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the man-
ufacturer's instructions, and should use a mounting accessory recom-
mended by the manufacturer.
9) A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and
cart combination to overturn.
10) Ventilation -- Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect
it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered.
The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed,
sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not be placed in a
built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
11) Power Sources -- This product should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure
of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or
local power company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
12) Grounding or Polarization -- This product may be equipped with a
polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This
is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet,
try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your elec-
trician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the polarized plug.
13) Power-Cord Protection -- Power-supply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon
or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, conve-
nience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
14) Outdoor Antenna Grounding -- If an outside antenna or cable sys-
tem is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable 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 70, provides information with regard 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 anten-
na-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.
"Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to
Section 820-40 of the NEC which provides guidelines for proper ground-
ing and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected
to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable
entry as practical.

Example of Antenna Grounding as per
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70
15) Lightning -- For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable sys-
tem. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-
16) Power Lines -- An outside antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power cir-
cuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing
an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
17) Overloading -- Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in risk of fire or elec-
18) Object and Liquid Entry -- Never push objects of any kind into this
product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the product.
19) Servicing -- Do not attempt to service this product yourself as
opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or
other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
20) Damage Requiring Service -- Unplug this product from the wall
outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the follow-
a) when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged.
b) if liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product.
c) if the product has been exposed to rain or water.
d) if the product does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the product to its normal operation.
e) if the product has been dropped or damaged in any way.
f ) when the product exhibits a distinct change in performance _ this indi-
cates a need for service.
21) Replacement Parts -- When replacement parts are required, be
sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other haz-
22) Safety Check -- Upon completion of any service or repairs to this
product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to deter-
mine that the product is in proper operating condition.
23) Wall or Ceiling Mounting -- The product should be mounted to a

ª Battery Installation
2. Insert two "AA" (R6, SUM-3) dry
Make sure that the batteries are inserted
with their positive and
ative poles positioned correctly.
3. Close the cover until it clicks.
If you notice that the distance between the
remote control unit and the unit for correct
operation becomes shorter, it
that the batteries are exhaust- ed. In this
case replace the batteries with new ones.
Precautions concerning batteries

correct positive and negative
O Use batteries of the same type. Never
O Rechargeable and non-rechargeable
batteries can be used. Refer to the pre-
cautions on their labels.
O When the remote control unit is not to
be used for a long time (more than a
month), remove the batteries from the
remote control unit to prevent them
from leaking. If they leak, wipe away
the liquid inside the battery compart-
ment and replace the batteries with new

O Before connection, turn off all compo-
nents and pay special attention to left (L)
and right (R) channel indications.
O Read the owner's manual of each com-
ponent you intend to use with this unit.
LINE IN / OUT terminals
Connect the LINE IN terminals to the TAPE
REC terminals and connect the LINE OUT
terminals to the TAPE PLAY terminals of the
stereo amplifier using RCA pin plug cords.
O LINE OUT terminals output the compact
disc or cassette deck tape signal. When
both compact disc and tape are played
back, the tape sound has priority.
CD LINE OUT terminals
Connect the CD LINE OUT terminals to the
CD, DAT or AUX terminals of the stereo
amplifier using RCA pin plug cords.
O CD LINE OUT terminals always output
the disc signal.
Be sure to connect the power cord to an AC
outlet which supplies the correct voltage.
Be sure to remove the power cord from the
AC outlet before repositioning the voltage
1. Locate the voltage selector on the rear
2. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, set to
the appropriate 230 V or 120 V position
according to your area.
