completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the

IMPORTANT: THE MOULDED PLUG
This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the

If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.

Blue : Neutral Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows ;
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured RED.
How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

Connecting the AM and FM antennas
Connecting the supplied antennas will allow you to listen
to both AM and FM radio broadcasts. If you find that
reception quality is poor, an outdoor antenna should give
you better sound quality—see Connecting external
antennas right for more on how to do this.
1 Pull off the protective shields of both AM
antenna wires.
2 Push open the tabs, then insert one wire fully
into each terminal, then release the tabs to secure
the AM antenna wires.
3 Fix the AM loop antenna to the attached stand.
To fix the stand to the antenna, bend in the direction
indicated by the arrow (fig. a) then clip the loop onto the
stand (fig. b).
• If you plan to mount the AM antenna to a wall or other
surface, secure the stand with screws (fig. c) before
clipping the loop to the stand. Make sure the
reception is clear.
4 Place the AM antenna on a flat surface and point
in the direction giving the best reception.
Don’t let it come into contact with metal objects and
avoid placing near computers, television sets or other
electrical appliances.
5 Connect the FM wire antenna in the same way as
the AM loop antenna.
For best results, extend the FM antenna fully and fix to a
wall or door frame. Don’t drape loosely or leave coiled up.
Connecting external antennas
External AM antenna
Use 5 to 6 meters of vinyl-insulated wire and set up either
indoors or outdoors. Leave the AM loop antenna
connected.
External FM antenna
Use a PAL connector to hook up an external FM antenna.

Connecting the speakers
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the
right terminal and the speaker on the left to the left
terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–)
terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers.
You can use speakers with a nominal impedance
between 4 Ω to 8 Ω.
• Connect the speakers to the SPEAKERS terminals
as shown above.
Bare wire connections
Make sure that the speaker cable you’re going to use is
properly prepared with about 10 mm of insulator stripped
from each wire, and the exposed wire strands twisted
together (fig. A).
To connect a terminal, unscrew the terminal a few turns
until there is enough space to insert the exposed wire
(fig. B). Once the wire is in position, tighten the terminal
until the wire is firmly clamped (fig. C).
Important
• Please refer to the manual that came with your
speakers for details on how to connect the other end
of the speaker cables to your speakers.
Caution
• These speaker terminals can be under HAZARDOUS
VOLTAGE. When you connect or disconnect the
speaker cables, to prevent the risk of electric shock,
do not touch uninsulated parts before disconnecting
the power cord.
• Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted
together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal.
If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel
it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.
Plugging in
Make sure to complete all connections before
connecting to an AC IN inlet.
• Connect the AC power cord to the AC IN inlet on
the rear panel of the receiver, then plug into a
power outlet.

About Internet radio
Internet radio is an audio broadcasting service
transmitted via the Internet. There are a large number of
Internet radio stations broadcasting a variety of services
from every corner of the world. Some are hosted,
managed, and broadcast by private individuals while
others are by the corresponding traditional terrestrial
radio stations or radio networks. Whereas terrestrial, or
OTA (over-the-air), radio stations are geographically
restricted on the range of radio waves broadcast from a
transmitter through the air, Internet radio stations are
accessible from anywhere in the world, as long as there
is a connection to the Internet, as services are not
transmitted through the air but are delivered over the
World Wide Web. On this receiver you can select Internet
radio stations by genre as well as by region.
About list of Internet radio
The list of Internet radio stations on this receiver is
created, edited, and managed by the vTuner database
service exclusively for use with this receiver.

Hints on installation
We want you to enjoy using this product for years to
come, so please use the following guidelines when
choosing a suitable location:
Do...
• Use in a well-ventilated room.
• Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table,
shelf or stereo rack.
Don’t...
• Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or
humidity, including near radiators and other heat-
generating appliances.
• Place on a window sill or a place where the receiver
will be exposed to direct sunlight.
• Use in an excessively dusty or damp environment.
• Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other
component in your stereo system that becomes hot
in use.
• Use near a television or monitor as you may
experience interference—especially if the television
uses an indoor antenna.
• Use in a kitchen or other room where the receiver
may be exposed to smoke or steam.
• Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth—this
may prevent proper cooling of the unit.
• Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large
enough to support all four of the unit’s feet.
Taking care of your receiver and discs
General
Hold discs by the edge or by the center hole and edge.
When you’re not using a disc, return it to its case and
store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold,
humid, or hot environments (including under direct
sunlight).
Don’t glue paper or put stickers on to discs. Do not use a
pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing
instrument to write on the disc.
Don’t use self-adhesive disc labels on discs as these can
cause the disc to warp slightly during playback causing
distortion in the picture and/or sound.
Damaged and shaped discs
Do not use cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise
damaged discs as they may damage the receiver.
This receiver is designed to be used only with
conventional, fully circular discs. Do not use shaped
discs. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection
with the use of shaped discs.

Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on discs can affect playback
performance. Clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the
disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown
below.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a
commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a
disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or
other cleaning agents, including products designed for
cleaning vinyl records.
Cleaning the receiver’s exterior
Unplug the unit before cleaning.
Use a dry cloth to wipe off dust and dirt. If the surfaces
are very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth dipped in some
neutral cleanser diluted five or six times with water and
wrung out well, then wipe again with a dry cloth.
Do not use furniture wax or cleaners. Never use thinners,
benzine or insecticide sprays or other chemicals on or
near this receiver.
If you use a chemical-impregnated cleaning cloth, read
the instructions carefully before use. These cloths may
leave smear marks on half-mirror finish surfaces; if this
happens, finish with a dry cloth.
Cleaning the pickup lens
The receiver’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. We do not recommend using
commercially available lens cleaners for CD players.
Condensation
Condensation may form inside the receiver if it is brought
into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of
the room rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t
damage the receiver, it may temporarily impair its
performance. Leave it to adjust to the warmer
temperature for about an hour before switching on.
Moving the receiver
If you need to move the receiver, first switch the unit into
standby (press  STANDBY/ON on the remote control),
then unplug the power cable. Never lift or move the unit
during playback—discs rotate at a high speed and may
be damaged.
