WARNING

This system is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.

To reduce the risk of fire, do not cover the ventilation opening of the apparatus with newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc. Do not place lighted candles or other sources of an open flame on the apparatus.

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to dripping or splashing liquids, and do not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the apparatus.

As the main plug is used to disconnect the system from the AC power source, connect the system to an easily accessible AC outlet. Should you notice an abnormality in the system, disconnect the main plug from the AC outlet immediately.

Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such as a bookcase or built-in cabinet.

Do not expose battery or apparatus with battery installed to excessive heat sources such as direct sunlight or fire.

CAUTION Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type.

The nameplate is located on the bottom exterior.

Precautions AC adaptor and AC power cord use Do not plug the AC power cord for the system into

an electrical outlet until you have made all other connections. Make sure the TV or other component is unplugged from the electrical outlet prior to connecting it to the system.

Do not connect the AC power cord to a voltage transformer or inverter. Connecting the AC power cord to a voltage transformer for overseas travel or an inverter for use in an automobile may cause heat to build up in the AC adaptor and may cause burns or a malfunction.

Do not use an AC adaptor or AC power cord other than the supplied AC adaptor and AC power cord. Do not modify the cord.

Do not touch the plug of the AC power cord with wet hands.

Do not touch the AC power cord, AC adaptor or the system, if connected to an electrical outlet, during an electrical storm.

Do not place heavy items on the cord. Do not place the AC power cord near heating

equipment and do not expose the cord to heat. Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet

before cleaning or moving the system, or when you do not intend to use the system for an extended period of time. When disconnecting, grasp the power cord by the plug and pull straight out of the electrical outlet. Never pull by the cord and do not pull out at an angle.

Use and Handling Although the system heats up during operation, this is

not a malfunction. If you continuously use this system at high volume levels, the operating temperature at the back and bottom of the unit will rise considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the system.

Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the life of the system.

Do not place the system on surfaces that are unstable, tilted or subject to vibration.

Do not place the system near equipment such as a CRT (tube) TV, VCR, or tape deck. (If the system is being used in combination with a CRT (tube) TV, VCR, or tape deck, and is placed too close to that equipment, noise may result, and picture quality may suffer. This is especially likely when using an indoor aerial.) (Use of an outdoor aerial is recommended.)

3 GB

The system is magnetically shielded to allow it to be installed near a TV. However, colour irregularities may still be observed on certain types of TVs. If colour irregularity is observed, turn off the TV, and then turn it back on after 15 to 30 minutes. If colour irregularity is observed, again, move the system further away from the TV.

Do not use the openings on the rear to pick up or hold the system and do not insert your fingers or hands into them as this may cause injury or may damage the system.

Use caution when placing the system on surfaces that have been specially treated (such as with wax, oil, or polish), as staining or discolouration of the surface may result.

Cleaning Follow these instructions to help prevent the product exterior from deteriorating or becoming discoloured. Wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Do not place any rubber or vinyl materials on the

product exterior for an extended period of time. Do not use solvents or other chemicals. Do not wipe

with a chemically-treated cleaning cloth.
