Warning

Touching live parts can result in severe injury or death.

  • When connecting the device, make sure that the correct voltage is present. You can find more information about this on the rating plate.
  • Regularly check the device and the mains cord for damage. Immediately pull the mains plug out of the socket and do not operate the device if its housing or mains cord is defective or exhibits other visible damages.
  • This device is disconnected from the grid by pulling the mains plug. Thus, make sure that the mains plug is always easily accessible.
  • If the device emits smoke, smells burnt or produces unusual sounds, immediately disconnect it from the mains and do not operate it further.
  • Never open the device housing. Repairs may only be carried out by an authorised specialist workshop. Only parts that match the original specifications may be used.
  • Only use the accessory products specified by the manufacturer.
  • Never modify the device. Unauthorised modifications may affect the safety and functionality.
  • Never touch the mains cord with wet hands.

Warning

An unsuitable setup location may result in injury and damage.

  • Never use the device unmounted in vehicles, in unstable locations, on wobbly tripods or furniture, on insufficiently dimensioned brackets etc. The device may tip or fall down and cause injury to persons or be damaged itself.
  • Arrange the device so that it cannot be knocked over accidentally and make sure that the cables do not pose a tripping hazard.
  • Do not place the device and the mains adapter near heat sources (e.g. heaters, ovens, other heat generating equipment such as amplifiers).
  • Do not use the device in environments where there is a risk of explosion.
  • Only use the wireless functions (Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi) in locations where wireless radio transmission is allowed.

Warning

Children can become trapped in the plastic wrapping when playing and suffocate.

  • Do not allow children to play with the device or the plastic wrapping. There is a danger of suffocation.
  • Never allow children to operate electrical equipment unsupervised.

Warning

Swallowing a product battery may result in severe internal injury or even death.

  • Store both new and used batteries so that they are not accessible to children.
  • If it is no longer possible to safely close the battery compartment, stop using the remote control and store it so that it is not accessible for children.
  • If you suspect that a battery has been swallowed or otherwise incorporated, promptly consult a physician.

Caution

Leaking battery acid may lead to chemical burns.

  • Do not allow battery acid to come into contact with skin, eyes or mucous membranes. In the event of contact with acid, immediately flush the applicable areas with plenty of clean water and consult a physician if necessary.

Caution

Extended listening at high volumes may lead to hearing loss.

To avoid damage to health, avoid extended listening at high volumes.

  • When the volume is set high, always keep a certain distance from the device and never place your ears directly on the speaker.
  • If your MUSICSTATION is set to full volume, it may produce very high sound pressure. This may have psychological consequences and also cause physical injury. Children and pets are particularly at risk. Set your signal source device volume to a low setting before turning on the power.

Caution

This product contains magnetic material.

  • If necessary, consult your physician and ask about effects on implants such as pacemakers or defibrillators.

Operating the device when the housing is open will cause an invisible or visible laser beam to be emitted.

  • Do not place open flames such as burning candles or similar on the device.
  • Ensure sufficient ventilation.
  • Do not expose the device to direct sunlight.
  • Only use the device indoors.
  • Do not operate the device in wet rooms and protect it from dripping and splashing water. Make sure that no vases or other liquid-filled objects are located on or near the device in order to prevent liquid from penetrating the housing. If water or other debris have infiltrated the device, immediately pull the mains adapter out of the socket. Then send the device to our service address.

NOTICE
The isolation pads can produce discolouration on sensitive surfaces.

  • On parquet, varnished wood and similar surfaces, you should stick felt gliders to the rubber feet of the device or put a blanket under it. This will prevent discolouration of the floor over the long term.

You can also register two Bluetooth ® devices and have them played in alternation.

NOTICE

  • Only use the Bluetooth ® function in locations where wireless radio transmission is allowed.
  • Please keep in mind that the Bluetooth ® behaviour may differ depending on the external player’s operating system.

Care And Cleaning

NOTICE
External influences may damage or destroy the device.

  • If the device is to be left unattended for a prolonged period of time (e.g. during a vacation) or if a thunderstorm is forecast, pull the mains plug out of the socket. Otherwise, sudden overvoltage could cause the device to become defective.
  • If possible, only use plain water without any additives. In case of stubborn marks, a mild soap solution may be used.
  • Do not use caustic cleaning products, white spirit, thinners, petrol or similar under any circumstances. Such cleaning agents may damage the delicate surface of the housing.
    • Ideally, you should remove dust or small amounts of dirt with a dry, smooth leather cloth.
    • Use a damp cloth to rub off stubborn dirt. Make sure that no liquid penetrates the housing.
    • Then immediately wipe the damp surfaces off with a soft cloth without applying pressure.
