FM T-type antenna
AM loop antenna
Install the tuner in a well-ventilated location
where it will not be exposed to high
temperatures or humidity.
Do not install the tuner in a location which is exposed to
direct rays of the sun, or near hot appliances or radiators.
Excessive heat can adversely affect the cabinet and in-
ternal components. Installation of the tuner in a damp or
dusty environment may result in a malfunction or acci-
dent. (Also avoid installation near cookers, etc., where
the tuner may be exposed to smoke, steam, or heat.)
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord
when your hands are wet as this could cause a short cir-
cuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of
furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never
make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The
power cords should be routed such that they are not likely
to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause fire
or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord
once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your near-
est PIONEER authorized service center or your dealer for
Maintenance of external surfaces
¶ Use a polishing cloth or dry cloth to wipe off dust
¶ When the surfaces are very dirty, wipe with a soft

or six times with water, and wrung out well, and
then wipe again with a dry cloth. Do not use furni-
ture wax or cleaners.
¶ Never use thinners, benzine, insecticide sprays or
other chemicals on or near this unit, since these
will corrode the surfaces.
When this unit is brought into a warm room from previ-
ously cold surroundings or when the room temperature
rises sharply,condensation may from inside,and the unit
may not be able to attain its full performance. In this case,
allow the unit to stand for about an hour or raise the room
CHANNEL STEP SETTING
Before using the unit for the first time, be sure to set the
correct channel step (FM and AM) for your area.
If the channel step setting is incorrect, tuning to the cor-
rect frequency will not be possible, and poor sound qual-
ity due to distortion and noise will prevent reproduction
of the received signal.
FM 100 kHz, AM 10 kHz:
Set to this position for areas with an FM reception step
of 100 kHz and AM 10 kHz.
FM 50 kHz, AM 9 kHz:
Set to this position, for areas with an FM reception step
of 50 kHz and AM 9 kHz.
When unsure about the channel allocation for your area,
consult your dealer for correct information.
To change channel steps
Setting the FM channel step to 100kHz and the AM
channel step to 10kHz:
When power is in standby, press the STANDBY/ON
switch while pressing STATION CALL button 0/10 to
switch power ON.
Setting the FM channel step to 50kHz and the AM
channel step to 9kHz:
When power is in standby, press the STANDBY/ON
switch while pressing STATION CALL button
switch power ON.
