CAUTION: 

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with 
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of 
the FCC Rules. 

These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection 
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This 
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency 
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the 
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio 
communications. However, there is no guarantee that inter- 
ference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equip- 
ment does cause harmful interference to radio or television 
reception, which can be determined by turning the equip- 
ment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the 
interference by one or more of the following measures: 

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. 

• Increase the separation between the equipment and re- 
ceiver. 

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different 
from that to which the receiver is connected. 

• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician 
for help. 

Any unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment 
would void the user's authority to operate this device. 

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Opera- 
tion is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device 
may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must 
accept any interference received, including interference that 
may cause undesired operation. 





Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just pur- 
chased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's time to 
consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equip- 
ment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Associ- 
ation's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of 
your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound 
come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or 
distortion — and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive 
hearing. 

We recommend that you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive 
noise. 

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing "comfort level" 

adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds "normal" can 

actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. 

Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE 

your hearing adapts. 

To establish a safe level: 

• Start your volume control at a low setting. 

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and 
clearly, and without distortion. 

Once you have established a comfortable sound level: 

• Set the dial and leave it there. 

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage 
or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

Read these operating instructions carefully before using the unit. Follow the safety instructions on the unit and the applicable safety instructions 
listed below. Keep these operating instructions handy for future reference. 



1) Read these instructions. 

2) Keep these instructions. 

3) Heed all warnings.

9) Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding- 
type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than 
the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third 
grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided 
for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, 
consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet. 



10) Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched 
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point 
where they exit from the apparatus. 

1 1 ) Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer. 



12) Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or 
table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with 
the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution 
when moving the cart/apparatus combination to 
avoid injury from tip-over. 




13) Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused 
for long periods of time. 

14) Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is 
required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, 
such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been 
spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus 
has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, 
or has been dropped.

heat above 100°C (21 2T), or incinerate. Replace battery with 
Panasonic part number CR 2032 only. Use of another battery 
may present a risk of fire or explosion. 

Dispose of used battery promptly. Keep away from children. 
Do not disassemble and do not dispose of in fire. 



Speakers are designed identically so that no left or right channel 
orientation is necessary. 




Notes 



• Keep your speakers at least 10 mm ( 1 %2") away from the system 
for proper ventilation. 

• These speakers do not have magnetic shielding. Do not place them 
near televisions, personal computers or other devices easily 
influenced by magnetism. 

• To avoid damage to the speakers, do not touch the speaker cones 
if you have taken the nets off. 




Caution 

• Use the speakers only with the recommended 
system. Failure to do so may lead to damage to 
the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result 
in the risk of fire. Consult a qualified service 
person if damage has occurred or if you 
experience a sudden change in performance. 

• Do not attach these speakers to walls or ceilings.
