AC Plug
AC Outlet

POWER SOURCE

This system is designed to operate on 120V 60Hz AC house current . Connecting this system to any other power supply could result in damage to the unit which is not covered by your warranty.You will note that this system is equipped with a polarized AC power plug having one

blade wider than the other. This is a safety feature. If this plug does not fit into your existing AC outlet, do

not try to defeat this safety feature

by filing the wide blade to make it fit into your outlet. If this plug will not

fit into your outlet, you probably have an out-datednon-polarizedAC outlet. You should have your outlet changed by a qualified licensed electrician.

AC Operation

1.) Unwind the AC Power Cord completely.

2.) Insert the plug into any convenient 120V 60Hz AC outlet.

PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE

This model is equipped with non-skidrubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made fromnon-migratingrubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase smallself-adhesivefelt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

USING THE REMOTE CONTROLLER CORRECTLY

Point the remote controller at the Remote Sensor.

The functions of the buttons on the remote control are the same as the corresponding controls on the main unit.

When there is a strong ambient light source, the performance of the infrared Remote Sensor may be degraded, causing unreliable operation.

The maximum effective distance for remote control operation is about 15 feet.

BATTERY PRECAUTIONS

Follow these precautions when using batteries in this device:

1.Use only the size and type of batteries specified.

2.Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.

3.Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-Zinc)or old batteries with fresh ones.

4.If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent damage or injury from possible battery leakage.

5.Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture. (Follow battery manufacturer’s directions.)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Make sure that the FM Antenna is fully extended.

Make sure that you have installed batteries in the remote control.

Make sure that the AC power cord is connected to an outlet that is always “live”. Do not connect to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.

GENERAL CONTROLS

Volume Adjustments

Press the VOLUME UP or DOWNbuttons on the front panel or the remote control to increase or decrease the volume. The volume level indicator appears in the main display. The range is from “00 db” (Minimum) to “80 db” (Maximum). The system remembers the volume level when the power is switched ‘Off’and returns to the same level when the power is switched ‘On’again.

Preset Equalizer (EQ)

This system has a 3-BandPreset Electronic Equalizer that allows you to adjust the tone output for the most popular types of music. The settings are “CLASSIC”, “ROCK”, “POP” or flat (no EQ).

To change the EQ setting press the EQ button on the top panel or on the remote control until the desired setting appears in the main display.

MUTE Button

To temporarily shut off the sound from the speakers press the MUTE button. The MUTE indicator will appear in the display and the sound will stop. Press the MUTE button again to cancel Mute and restore the sound. The MUTE indicator will disappear from the display.

PHONES Jack

For private listening without disturbing others connect a set of stereo headphones (not included) to the PHONES Jack on the front panel. The speakers are automatically shut off when stereo headphones are connected to the headphone jack. When using stereo headphones always start with the volume control set to a low level and gradually increase until you find the desired level.
