Choose the installation location of your unit carefully. Avoid placing
it in direct sunlight or close to source of heat. Also avoid locations
subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat, cold or moisture.

When moving the deck, be sure to first pull out the power plug and
remove all cords connecting the deck to other equipment.

time. This can have a serious effect on reproduction quality. Clean
the heads regularly with one of the commonly available head
cleaners or with cleaning solutions as explained later in this manual.
