The unit is not disconnected from the AC power  
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall  
outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.  
The nameplate indicating operating voltage, etc. is  
located on the bottom exterior.  
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit  
different from that to which the receiver is  
connected.  
Tip  
Adjust the direction of the AM loop antenna for best AM  
broadcast sound.  
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/ TV  
technician for help.

This unit comes supplied with an FM wire antenna and  
FM dipole antenna. Connect an antenna that provides  
good reception to the FM antenna terminal.  
You are cautioned that any changes or modifications  
not expressly approved in this manual could void  
your authority to operate this equipment.  
Since  
a
strong magnet is used for the speaker, keep  
personal credit cards using magnetic coding or spring-  
wound watches away from the unit to prevent possible

FM wire antenna  
(supplied)  
Do not leave the unit in a location near a heat source  
such as a radiator or airduct, or in a place subject to  
direct sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration,  
or shock.  
Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat  
build-up. Do not place the unit on a surface (a rug, a  
blanket, etc.) or near materials (a curtain) which might  
block the ventilation holes.  
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the unit,  
unplug the unit and have it checked by a qualified  
personnel before operating it any further.  
To clean the casing, use a soft cloth dampened with a  
mild detergent solution.  
Never touch the wire of the external FM antenna  
during a thunderstorm. Furthermore, immediately  
disconnect the AC power code from the radio.  
Clean the appliance only as recommended by Sony.  
At t a ch m e n t s  
Do not use attachments not recommended by Sony, as they may cause hazards.

ANTENNAS  
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system  
installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that  
provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in  
particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be  
connected to the grounding system of the building, as  
close to the point of cable entry as practical.  
Ou t d o o r An t e n n a Gro u n d in g  
If an outdoor antenna or cable system is installed, follow the precautions below.  
An outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other  
electric light or power circuits, or where it can come in contact with such power lines or circuits.  
WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN  
TO KEEP FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM  
IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL.  
Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and  
built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code provides information with respect  
to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an  
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection  
to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

-This indicates  
a
need for service.  
-If the appliance does not operate normally when following the operating instructions, adjust only  
those controls that are specified in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls  
may result in damage and will often require extensive work
