4 En 4 S001_A1_En Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’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. 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. We Want You Listening For A Lifetime Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection. Decibel Level Example 30 Quiet library, soft whispers 40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic 50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office 60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine 70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant 80 Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock at two feet. THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE 90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower 100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill 120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap 140 Gunshot blast, jet plane 180 Rocket launching pad Information courtesy of the Deafness Research Foundation. FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION DECLARATION OF CONFORMITY This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation 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.

About discs created on computers Depending on the application settings and the computer’s environ- mental settings, it may not be possible to play certain discs. Record the disc in a format supported on this unit. For details, contact your application’s retailer. If the recording quality is poor due to the disc’s properties, scratches or dirt on the disc or dirt on the recording lens, it may not be possible to play the disc. Creating backup discs When CD-R/-RW discs are paused or left in the pause mode at cue points for long periods of time, it may become difficult to play the disc at that point, due to the properties of the disc. Also, when a specific point is looped repeatedly an extremely large number of times, it may become difficult to play that point. When playing valuable discs, we recommend making backup discs.

Cautions on use About condensation Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating parts and lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a cold place into a warm room or if the temperature in the room in which the unit is installed rises suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will not operate properly and will not be playable with condensation inside. Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature (though this time depends on the conditions of the condensation) without turning on the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will become playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens, move the unit to a different location. Cleaning the lens The player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for players are commercially available, we advise against using them since some may damage the lens. Handling discs Storing ! Always place discs in their cases and store them vertically, avoid- ing hot, humid places, places exposed to direct sunlight and extremely cold places. ! Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc. Cleaning discs ! Discs may not play if there are fingerprints or dust on them. In this case, use a cleaning cloth, etc., to gently wipe the disc from the inside towards the outside. Do not use dirty cleaning cloths. ! Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not use record spray or antistatic agents. ! For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thor- oughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth. ! Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs. ! Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or dirty. ! Do not place two discs in the disc tray, one on top of the other. ! Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing so could warp discs, making it impossible to play them. Also note that rental discs often have labels attached to them, and the label’s glue may have oozed out. Check that there is no glue around the edges of such labels before using rented discs.
