• Do not leave the player in a location near heat sources; in a location subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, sand, moisture, rain or mechanical shock; on an unlevel surface; or in a car with the windows closed during periods of excessive heat.

ROAD SAFETY:

• Do not use headphones while driving, cycling or operating any motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and it is illegal in some areas.

Dear Customer:

Selecting fine audio and video equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

• Start your volume control at a low setting.

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime

Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment.

Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.

Mix It Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1.Do I need to use the Mix It Plug-Ininstalled on page 9 in order to use my music files on my Mix Max?

No, you do not. However, if you do not first analyze your music files using the Mix It Plug-In,you will not be able to take advantage of the Mix It features on the Mix Max. If your files have not been analyzed, your tracks will play at random.

2.Can I purchase Mix It ready songs?

Yes, Disney SD memory cards with “Mix It Ready” indicated on the packaging will take advantage of the Mix It technology automatically.

3.Do I have to use “Extended Analysis” in order to use my files on my Mix Max?

No, you do not. The initial analysis done by the Plug-Inwill typically ensure all of your tracks are Mix It ready.

4.I accidentally closed the Mix It Plug-In;how can Ire-openit?

If you created a shortcut on your Desktop, Quick Launch bar or Start menu during the installation process, you can simply use the shortcut. If you wish to open the

Plug-Infrom within Windows Media Player, click “Tools” and then“Plug-ins”.The

Mix It Plug-Inwill be available there.

5.Do I need to do anything when I add or remove songs from my Windows Media Player library?

No, the Plug-Inwill automatically find new songs you add (by either dragging or dropping them into your Windows Media Player library, or through a different method) automatically.
