fitted is not suitable for the power points in your home or the
cable is too short to reach a power point, then obtain an
appropriate safety approved extension lead or consult your
dealer.
If nonetheless the mains plug is cut off, remove the fuse and
dispose of the plug immediately, to avoid a possible shock
hazard by inadvertent connection to the mains supply.
If this product is not provided with a mains plug, or one has to
be fitted, then follow the instructions given below:
IMPORTANT. DO NOT make any connection to the larger
terminal which is marked with the letter E or by the safety earth
symbol | or coloured GREEN or GREEN-and-YELLOW.
The wires in the mains lead on this product are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
BLUE

BROWN : LIVE
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as
follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED.
When replacing the fuse only a correctly rated approved type

Cassette Tape
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories.
HX Pro headroom extension originated by Bang and Olufsen.
"Dolby", "HX Pro", and the double-D symbol are trademarks
of Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby NR
Dolby NR (Noise Reduction) is an encode/decode process used
when tapes are recorded and played back.
When music is being recorded on the tape, soft, high-frequency
passages (that tape hiss affects) are made louder than normal so
that they become louder than the tape's noise. When the tape is
played back, they are lowered back down to their original levels.
Noise is reduced in the process.
Dolby B NR is the original Dolby system designed for consumer
tape recording. Dolby C NR was developed later to provide twice
the tape hiss reduction (20 dB) of Dolby B NR, and better
cassette performance.
Dolby HX Pro headroom extension
Dolby HX Pro headroom extension makes it possible to record
loud musical passages with fewer high-frequency losses and less
distortion.
As no encoding of the signal takes place, no playback decoding
circuitry is required to realize the benefits of Dolby HX Pro.
Tape Handling
Use your finger or a pencil to turn the cassette's hub and take
up any slack tape.
<
Avoid touching the tape. Fingerprints attract dust and dirt.
<
Avoid dropping or subjecting cassettes to excessive shocks.
<
As C-120 tapes are physically weak and could become
entangled in the transport mechanism, do not use them.
Do not store tapes in the following places:
<
On top of heaters, exposed to direct sunlight or in any other
places with high temperatures.
<
Near speakers, on TV sets or amplifiers or where they would
be exposed to strong magnetic fields.
<
Where humidity is high and in dirty, dusty places.
Head Maintenance
The head and tape path should be cleaned and demagnetized
periodically. Please use cassette type head cleaning tape and
demagnetizer. For details of its use, read its instructions.
Tape Selection
This unit is equipped with the automatic tape select function.
You can use Normal, Chrome and Metal tapes for playback
and recording.
