For British models
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power
supply cord of this unit should be performed only by
qualiﬁed service personnel.
The speaker cabinets are made out of wood and are
therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and
humidity, do not put them in locations subject to direct
sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air condi-
tioner, humidiﬁer, bathroom, or kitchen.
Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers.
If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive units
may be damaged.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured mark-
ings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
• Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, ﬂat surfaces
that are free from vibration. Putting them on uneven or
unstable surfaces, where they may fall and cause dam-
age, will affect the sound quality.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
• The subwoofer should be used in the upright position
only. Do not use it on its side or at an angle.
• If the speakers are used near a turntable, CD player, or
DVD player, howling or disc skipping may occur. To
prevent this, move the speakers away from the turnta-
ble or player, or turn down the volume.
Using Close to a TV or Computer
The plug is ﬁtted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse
needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must be
approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same
ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for
the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
If the power cord’s plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, cut it off and ﬁt a suitable plug. Fit a suitable
fuse in the plug.
TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive
devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or
picture distortion when conventional speakers are
placed nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-960F and
SKC-960C feature internal magnetic shielding. In some
situations, however, discoloration may still be an issue,
in which case you should turn off your TV or monitor,
wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then turn it back on again.
This normally activates the degaussing function, which
neutralizes the magnetic ﬁeld, thereby removing any
discoloration effects. If discoloration problems persist,
try moving the speakers away from your TV or monitor.
Note that discoloration can also be caused by a magnet
or demagnetizing tool that’s too close to your TV or
