DO NOT cut off the mains plug from this equipment. If the plug fitted is not suitable for the power points in your home or the cable is too short to reach a power point, then obtain an appropriate safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer.
If nonetheless the mains plug is cut off, remove the fuse and dispose of the plug
immediately, to avoid a possible shock hazard by inadvertent connection to the mains supply.
If this product is not provided with a mains plug, or one has to be fitted, then follow the instructions given below:
IMPORTANT. DO NOT make any connection to the larger terminal which is marked with the letter E or by the safety earth symbol |
or coloured GREEN or GREEN-and-YELLOW.
The wires in the mains lead on this product are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE : NEUTRAL BROWN : LIVE
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED.
When replacing the fuse only a correctly rated approved type should be used and be sure to re-fit the fuse cover.
IF IN DOUBT — CONSULT A COMPETENT ELECTRICIAN.

Battery Installation
Remove the battery compartment cover. Insert two AAA (R03, UM-4) dry batteries. Make sure that the batteries are inserted with their positive
+
and negative _ poles positioned correctly.
Close the cover.
Battery Replacement
If the distance required between the remote control unit and main unit decreases, the batteries are exhausted. In this case replace the batteries with new ones.
Precautions concerning batteries
<
Be sure to insert the batteries with correct positive
+
and negative _ polarities.
<
Use batteries of the same type. Never use different types of batteries together.
<
Rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries can be used. Refer to the precautions on their labels.
<
When the remote control unit is not to be used for a long time (more than a month), remove the batteries from the remote control unit to prevent them from leaking. If they leak, wipe away the liquid inside the battery compartment and replace the batteries with new ones.
<

Connecting Antennas
AM Outdoor Antenna
If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver sufficient reception (because you are too far from the transmitter or in a concrete building, etc.), it may be necessary to use an outdoor AM antenna. Strip one end of a 5-m or longer, insulated wire and connect it to the terminal as shown. The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or if indoors, near a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.
Note:
Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect the AM loop antenna.
FM Indoor Antenna
Connect the lead-type FM antenna to the FM 75 socket, extend the lead and attach it to a window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like, where reception is best.
FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor FM antenna. Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.

AM Indoor Loop Antenna
A high-performance AM loop antenna provided with this unit is sufficient for good reception in most areas.
To stand the loop antenna on a surface, insert the claw into the slot. Connect the loop antennas wires to the AM antenna terminals as shown.
Place the antenna on a shelf, for example, or hang it on a window frame, etc., in the direction which gives the best reception, as far away as possible from the entire system, speaker cords and the power cord to prevent unwanted noise.
If there is no room for the AM loop antenna, you may mount it on the wall using screws (not supplied).

DAB Indoor Antenna
Connect the T-type DAB antenna to the DAB socket, extend the lead vertically and attach it to a window frame or wall with thumbtacks, or the like, where reception is best.
<
You can check the antenna adjustment or positioning for the best reception by viewing the signal strength on the display. The signal strength is displayed as a bar graph by pressing the SELECT/TUNING MODE knob once.
E
DAB Outdoor Antenna
In an area where DAB signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an outdoor DAB antenna. There are two main types available.
Dipole:
For use in marginal signal areas. This type of antenna is omnidirectional and should increase the strength of all DAB stations being received.
Multi-element antenna:
Also for use in marginal or poor signal areas. This type of antenna is directional and has high gain. This antenna needs to be pointed at the transmitter you want to listen to.
<
It is possible to use a TV or FM antenna with your DAB tuner as this is normally mounted externally. This may give a stronger signal than a simple internal antenna, however it would not be tuned specifically for DAB reception. You would need to change the plug on your TV/FM antenna to an F type, and it may also be necessary to use a signal booster to enhance the signal.
