Used for instructions intended to alert the user to the risk of death or severe injury should the unit be used improperly.
Used for instructions intended to alert the user to the risk of injury or material damage should the unit be used improperly.
*Material damage refers to damage or other adverse effects caused with respect to the home and all its furnishings, as well to domestic animals.

  • Please read the owner’s manual carefully before use.

  • Please connect the power plug with ground protected power outlet.

  • Do not open (or modify in any way) the unit or its AC adapter (except when this manual provides specific instructions directing you to do so).

  • Do not attempt to repair the unit, or replace parts within (except when this manual provides specific instructions directing you to do so)

  • Never use or store the unit in places that are:
    a. Subject to temperature extremes (e.g., direct sunlight in an enclosed vehicle, near a heating duct, on top of heat-generating equipment), or are
    b. Damp (e.g., baths, washrooms, on wet floors); or are
    c. Humid; or are
    d. Exposed to rain or are
    e. Dusty; or are
    f. Subject to high levels of vibration.

  • When using the unit with a rack or stand, the rack or stand must be carefully placed so it is level and sure to remain stable. If not using a rack or stand, you still need to make sure that any location you choose for placing the unit provides a level surface that will properly support the unit, and keep it from wobbling.

  • Be sure to use only the AC adapter supplied with the unit. Also, make sure the line voltage at the installation matches the input voltage specified on the AC adapter’s body. Other AC adapters may use a different polarity, or be designed for a different voltage, so their use could result in damage, malfunction, or electric shock.

  • Use only the attached power-supply cord. Also, the supplied power cord must not be used with any other device. Do not excessively twist or bend the power cord, nor place heavy objects on it. It can damage the cord, producing severed elements and short circuits. Damaged cords may cause fire and shock hazards!

  • This unit, either alone or in combination with an amplifier and headphones or speakers, may be capable of producing sound levels that could cause permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of time at a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should immediately stop using the unit, and consult an audiologist.

  • Do not allow any objects (e.g., flammable material, coins, pins); or liquids of any kind (water, soft drinks, etc.) to penetrate the unit. Immediately turn the power off, and remove the AC adapter from the outlet, as listed on the “Information” page when: a. The AC adapter, the power-supply cord, the plug has been damaged; or b. If smoke or unusual odor occurs; or c. Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been spilled onto the unit; or d. The unit has been exposed to rain (or otherwise has become wet); or e. The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibit a marked change in performance.

  • In Households with small children, an adult should provide supervision until the child is capable of following all the rules essential for the safe operation of the unit.

  • Protect the unit from strong impact. (Do not drop it!)

  • Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to share an outlet with an unreasonable number of other devices. Be especially careful when using extension cords-the total power used by all devices you have connected to the extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the power rating (watts/amperes) for the extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the insulation on the cord to heat up and eventually melt-through.

  • The unit and the AC adapter should be located so their location or position does not interfere with their proper ventilation. Always grasp only the plug on the AC adapter cord when plugging into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.

  • At regular intervals, you should unplug the AC adapter and clean it by using a dry cloth to wipe all dust and other accumulations away from its prongs. Also, disconnect the power plug from the power outlet whenever the unit is to remain unused for an extended period of time. Any accumula tion of dust between the power plug and the power outlet can result in poor insulation and lead to fire.

  • Try to prevent cords and cables from becoming entangled. Also, all cords and cables should be placed so they are out of reach of children.

  • Never climb on top of, nor place heavy objects on the unit.

  • Never handle the AC adapter or its plugs with wet hands when plugging into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit. Before moving the unit, disconnect the AC adapter and all cords coming from external devices.

  • Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power and unplug the AC adapter from the outlet.

  • Whenever you suspect the possibility of lightning in your area, disconnect the AC adapter from the outlet.

  • Keep any caps you may remove and the included wing bolts in a safe place out of children’s reach, so there is no chance of them being swallowed accidentally.

Power Supply

  • Do not connect this unit to the same electrical outlet that is being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit to malfunction or may produce audible noise.
  • If it is not practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet. The AC adapter will begin to generate heat after long hours of consecutive use. This is normal and is not a cause for concern.
  • Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speakers or other devices.


  • Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing large power transformers) may induce hum.
  • To alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away from the source of interference. This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
  • Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience such problems, you should relocate such wireless devices, so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch them off.
  • Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
  • When moved from one location to another where the temperature and/or humidity are very different, water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit.
  • Damage or malfunction may result if you attempt use the unit in this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must allow it to stand for several hours until the condensation has completely evaporated.


  • For everyday cleaning, wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterward, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
  • Never use benzene, thinners, alcohol, or solvents of any kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
