CAUTION
Sound Etiquette
Placement of the unit
Avoid placing it in high temperature environments
<
such as in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also, do not place the unit on an amplifier or any other device that generates heat. Doing so may cause discoloration, deformation, or malfunction.
When the unit is turned on, switching on the
<
TV may cause lines to appear on the TV screen, depending on the wave frequency of the TV broadcast. This is not a malfunction in the unit or the T V. If you see such lines, place this unit far away from the TV set.
Maintenance
If the surface of the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth or use diluted mild liquid soap. Do not use thinner, benzene or alcohol as they could damage the surface of the unit.
For safety, disconnect the power cord
from the socket before cleaning.
What is music to you may be noise to others. Even a little sound can be clearly heard on a silent night. Low sound passes through floors and walls easily, and may annoy others unintentionally. Enjoy music at an appropriate volume, close the window, or use headphones to ensure a pleasant living environment.

Installing dedicated TEAC driver software on a computer
To play back music files stored on a computer with this unit, you must download dedicated driver software from our website and install it on the computer before making your USB connections.
<Website address for downloading the dedicated driver software>
http://www.teac.co.jp/audio/software_teac_e.html
This unit can be connected by USB and used with a computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.6.4 or later. Use with a computer running a different operating system cannot be guaranteed.
Note
Install dedicated TEAC driver software before connecting to the computer by USB.
If you connect the unit with the computer before installing the driver, it will not function properly. Moreover, when using Windows XP, the computer could become remarkably slower and require restarting in some cases.
For details on how to install dedicated driver software, see our website.

Connect to the computer using HIGH SPEED asynchronous mode. Sampling frequencies that can be transmitted are 32 kHz*, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz,
176.4 kHz and 192 kHz.
* If the sampling frequency of the input signal is 32 kHz, the frequency indicators do not light
up, but the input indicators do.
If the connection has been made properly, “TEAC USB HS ASYNC AUDIO” will be selectable as an audio output destination.
In asynchronous mode, jitter that occurs during transfer is suppressed because the clock signal of this
<
unit is used for playback of the audio data transmitted from the computer.
