WARNING: To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture. Care should be taken to prevent objects or liquid from entering the enclosure. Never handle the power cord with wet hands.
·The lightning flash with arrowhead, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user of the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may constitute a risk of electric shock to you.
·The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user of the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the unit.
·Caution: To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover. No
·Unplug the Preamplifier Tuner from the AC outlet when plugging in or unplugging cables, when left unused for an extended period of time, when moving, or when you suspect lightning in your area.
·Prevent damage to the power cord. Do not bend, pull, place objects on, alter, etc. Replace the power cord if it becomes damaged. Always grasp the plug on the power cord when plugging in or unplugging the Preamplifier Tuner from the AC outlet.
·Your system may produce sound levels capable of causing permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for extended periods of time at high volume levels.
·Make sure the Preamplifier Tuner is placed on a level surface.
·The Preamplifier Tuner is equipped with raised feet to provide ventilation, reduce acoustic feedback, and provide protection against scratching the surface the unit is resting on. Do not remove them.
·Do not stack anything on top of the preamplifier tuner (processor, source, etc.) Leave a minimum of 2" clearance from the top of the Preamplifier Tuner to the next shelf (or component) to insure proper ventilation.

·Damage may occur to your speakers when the power rating of the driver is exceeded while playing back music processed by the Preamplifier. Ensure that all the drivers in your system are capable of handling not only the average power being delivered by the power amplifiers, but also the peak power that is likely to be generated during strong passages. If you are unsure of your speaker's power rating, contact the speaker manufacturer or the dealer where you purchased them.
