… … … .For Your iPod®

Thank you for purchasing this Digital Tuning Stereo Clock Radio with iPod® Docking Station and SmartSet® Auto Time Setting System from Emerson Research. This compact system has been designed with a powerful amplifier and matching high fidelity speakers to produce the kind of sound that you would only expect from a much larger, more expensive audio system. There is abuilt-iniPod® docking station that allows you to play any dockable iPod® model* through the speakers of this system. In addition while your iPod® is installed in the docking station the internal iPod® battery will be recharged automatically. You can even choose to wake up to your iPod® in the morning.

The digital tuner automatically scans the AM and FM bands and locks in stations perfectly with no repetitive fine tuning required. And you can save 20 of your favorite stations (10 AM and 10 FM) in the preset tuner memory for immediate recall at the touch of a button.

Emerson’s patented SmartSet® Automatic Time Setting System automatically sets the clock to the correct Year, Month, Date, Day, and Time the first time you connect the system to your AC outlet, and after every power interruption. It even adjusts for Daylight Saving Time changes and Leap Years automatically. The unique dual alarm system allows you program one or both of the alarms for weekdays only, weekends only, or everyday operation. And you can wake to your iPod® , to the radio, or an electronic buzzer that starts softly and gradually increases in volume to wake you gently.

The clock also includes a programmable 99-minutesleep to music timer with auto shutoff and a99-minuteNap timer that will wake you up after a nap without having to change your regular alarm settings. Of course we also included a Snooze alarm so you can catch a few extra winks after the alarm turns on in the morning, but this is not your normal Snooze control. You can activate the Snooze by pressing the Snooze button on the top cabinet or the remote control, or you can just wave your hand in front of the “TOUCHLESSSNOOZE SENSOR on the front panel.

The compact 13-keyremote control lets you operate all the major functions of your system from across the room. And we have even included a stereo headphone jack and an Auxiliary Input Jack on the back panel so that you can also connect older,non-dockingiPods® , MP3 players, and personal CD players.

PREPARATION FOR USE

Unpacking and Set Up

This carton contains the main unit, the remote control hand set, iPod® Support Bracket and 5 different iPod® adapters so that you can securely connect any dockable iPod® to the top mounted docking station. Remove all of the components from the carton and remove all packing materials from the components. We recommend that you save the carton and packing materials if possible in the event that your system ever needs to be retuned for service. Using the original carton and packing materials is the only way to protect you unit from damage in transit.

Remove any descriptive labels from the top or front panels of the main unit. Do not remove any labels from the back or bottom panels.

Place the main unit on a stable, level surface such as a table, desk, or shelf, convenient to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of water, moisture, heat, dust, dirt, vibration, or strong magnetic fields.

NOTE: The speakers in this system are not video shielded therefore it is not recommended to place this unit on top of your TV set. The magnets in the speakers could cause some color distortion in your TV picture.

Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length. This is important. The FM antenna is built into the AC power cord and must be fully extended for best FM reception.

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.

Battery Back-upSystem

This unit includes a battery back up system powered by a built-in,long life CR2430 lithium battery. The battery maintains the time and alarm settings, the Sleep and Nap timer settings, and the preset station tuner memories as well, whenever the power is interrupted. If the power is lost the display will go off and the system will not operate. However once the power is restored the clock will again reset itself and all of your other settings will be correct.

The lithium battery that was installed in your system can supply back up memory power for up to 5 years or even longer. The actual effective life of the lithium battery will be affected by the length of time between the date the battery was installed at our factory and the date that you connected your unit to your AC outlet, and by the number and duration of the power outages that you experience in your home. To maximize the life of the back up battery this system should be connected to an AC outlet that is always ‘live’. Do not connect this system to an AC outlet controlled by a wall switch.

When the lithium battery begins to weaken, the Low Battery indicator “” will begin to flash in the display. When you see this flashing indicator you should replace the lithium battery as soon as possible. Instructions for replacing the lithium battery will be found at the end of this Owner’s Manual.

Power Source

This system is designed to operate on 120V AC 60Hz house current only. Connecting this system to any other power source may cause damage to the system and such damage is not covered by your warranty.

NOTE: The system has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade. The plug will only fit into matching polarized AC outlets.

This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock. If the plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you probably have an outdated nonpolarized outlet. You should have your outdated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do not file the wide blade on the plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into your outlet. This defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.
