Precautions

Notes on the power cord

When you are away on travel or otherwise for an extended period of time, remove the plug from the wall outlet. A small amount of power (1.00 W or less) is always consumed while the power cord is connected to the wall outlet.

When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always pull the plug, not the power cord.

Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.

Disconnect the power cord before cleaning the System or moving the System.

Do not alter, twist or pull the power cord, or put anything heavy on it, which may cause fire, electric shock, or other accidents.

If the cord is damaged, consult a dealer and have the power cord replaced with a new one.

Avoid moisture, water, dust, and high temperatures

Do not place the System in moist or dusty places.

If water gets inside the System, turn off the power and remove the plug from the wall outlet, then consult your dealer. Using the System in this state may cause a fire or electrical shock.

Do not expose the System to direct sunlight or place it near a heating device.

Notes on installation

Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold between 5˚C and 35˚C.

Do not install the System in a place subject to vibrations.

Do not put heavy objects on the System.

To prevent malfunction or damage of the System

Do not insert any metallic objects, such as wires, hairpins, coins, etc. into the System.

Do not block the vents.

There are no user-serviceableparts inside.

If anything goes wrong, unplug the power cord and consult your dealer.

(Only for MX-KC68)

 

 

NOTE

Make sure the antenna conductors do not touch any other terminals, connecting cords and power cord. Also, keep the antennas away from metallic parts of the System, connecting cords, and the AC power cord. This could cause poor reception.

To a wall outlet

Plug the AC power cord only after all connections are complete.

If the wall outlet does not match the AC plug, use the supplied AC plug adapter (not applicable for Australia).

To connect the speaker cords

Make sure all speakers are connected correctly and firmly.

When connecting the speaker cords, match the polarity of the speaker terminals:

Main speakers: blue cord to (+) and black cord to (–)

Learning More about This System

Basic and Common Operations (see page 3)

Pressing one of the source buttons also turns on the System and starts playing back.

Playing Back a Disc (see page 4)

This System cannot play “packet write” discs.

For MP3/WMA playback...

In this manual, “file” and “track” are interchangeably used for MP3/WMA operations.

This System can show the Tag data (Version 1).

MP3/WMA discs are required a longer readout time than regular CDs. (It depends on the complexity of the group/ file configuration.)

Some MP3/WMA files cannot be played back and will be skipped. This result from their recording processes and conditions.

When making MP3/WMA discs, use ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2 for the disc format.

This System can play back MP3/WMA files with the extension code <.mp3> or <.wma> (regardless of the letter case—upper/lower).

It is recommended that you make each MP3/WMA file at a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz and at bit rate of 128 kbps. This System cannot play back files made at bit rate of less than 64 kbps.

Playback order of MP3/WMA tracks may be different from the one you have intended while recording. If a folder does not include MP3/WMA tracks, they are ignored.

This System can recognize up to 99 groups in a disc. The total number of groups and tracks in a disc that can be recognized by the System is 512 (for MP3/WMA).

Playable files which do not belong to any groups are handled as Group 1.

Listening to iPod (see page 6)

If the iPod does not play correctly, update your iPod Software to the latest version. For details about updating your iPod, check on the Apple web site <http://www.apple.com>.

The iPod battery cannot be charged while the System is in the Save mode.

When the iPod is not charged through the System, the iPod may not be turned on from the System.

You cannot send any data to your iPod from the System.

Sound distortion may occur when playing back audio sources with high recording levels. When distortion occurs, it is recommended to turn off the equalizer of the iPod. For information on operating the iPod, see the iPod instruction manual.

Do not touch or hit the iPod terminal pins or connector pins directly. It might cause damages to the connector part.

Setting the Clock and Using Timers (see page 7)

You can set the clock and Daily Timer even while the Save mode is turned on. While setting the clock or Daily Timer, the display is turning on.

The clock may gain or lose 1 to 2 minutes per month. If this happens, readjust the clock.

When you unplug the AC power cord or if a power failure occurs, the clock and the timer will be canceled. You need to set the clock first, then the timer again.

Timer Priority:

If you set the Sleep Timer after Daily Timer starts playing the selected source, Daily Timer is canceled.

Maintenance

To get the best performance of the System, keep your discs and mechanism clean.

Handling discs

Remove the disc from its case by holding it at the edge while pressing the center hole lightly.

Do not touch the shiny surface of the disc, or bend the disc.

Put the disc back in its case after use.

Be careful not to scratch the surface of the disc when placing it back in its case.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, temperature extremes, and moisture.

To clean the disc:

Wipe the disc with a soft cloth in a straight line from center to edge.

Cleaning the System

Stains should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the System is heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-dilutedneutral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.

Since the System may deteriorate in quality, become damaged or get its paint peeled off, be careful about the following:

DO NOT wipe it strong.

DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.

DO NOT apply any volatile substance such as insecticides to it.

DO NOT allow any rubber or plastic to remain in contact for a long time.
