TURNTABLE PLATTER AND RUBBER MAT ACCESSORIES 6 CARTRIDGE INSTALLATION POWER SUPPLY CONNECTION PART NAMES For power the unit requires normal house hold current (AC). Simply plug the unit into a wall outlet, or your amplifier's (or receiver's) convenience receptacle on the rear panel. If it is plugged to a convenience receptacle marked "SWITCHED," you cannot operate the unit when the power switch on the amplifier or receiver is set to OFF. If your unit is not equipped with a cartridge, install a cartridge onto the headshell. The lead wires extending from the headshell are color coded, as listed below. Be sure to connect each wire correctly. Green: Right/ Red: Right/ Blue: Left/ White: Left/+ Fit the cartridge into the headshell using nuts and bolts. INSTALLATION (1) EP adaptor (2) Turntable spindle (3) Platter/rubber mat (4) Speed selector (5) Speed control knob (6) Stroboscope (7) Record size selector (8) PLAY/REJECT button (9) Headshell (10) Tonearm (11) Arm rest/clamp (12) Cueing stick (13) Antiscating device (14) Stylus force gauge (15) Counterweight (16) Headshell stand To prevent hum, do not place the unit near appliances with motors or large transformers. Be sure the unit's location is not subject to high temperature, humidity, or direct sunlight, to prevent possible troubles. Vibration or tilted installation will impede good performance of the turntable and the stylus will skip grooves. ASSEMBLY 1. Fit the platter in place. 2. Turn the platter by hand until you can see the capstan through the hole in the platter. Locate the belt inside the platter. Hook the belt on to the capstan with fingers. 3. Fit the rubber mat onto the platter. 4. Fit the counterweight and headshell onto the tonearm. 5. Fit the hinges into the hinge pockets of the dust cover. 6. Install the dust cover, CONNECTION TO AMPLIFIER OR RECEIVER The unit is provided with RCA cords for both channels, and a ground wire. The RCA cord with white plug should be connected to L (left channel) of PHONO terminals and the cord with red plug to R (right channel) of PHONO terminals on the amplifier or receiver. PHONO OVERHANG ADJUSTMENT Caution: The tonearm should not be moved beyond the position of the silhouette print ed on the overhang gauge. Do not attempt to force the tonearm to the center spindle. Overhang adjustment is the positioning of the stylus tip at the optimal distance from the ful crum of the tonearm that enables the stylus tip to trace the record grooves properly. Poor adjustment of the overhang will render the stylus tip incapable of tracing the groove cor rectly. 1. Loosen the two cartridge mounting screws. 2. Put the center spindle through the hole on the overhang gauge, printed side up. 3. Position the overhang gauge so that the arrow on the gauge points to the fulcrum of the tonearm. 4. Place the tonearm above the silhoutte printed on the overhang gauge. Shift the car tridge foward or backward until the stylus tip is exactly above the point indicated by "tip". 5. Gently lower the arm lift and place the tonearm onto the gauge. Check for correct alignment. If misaligned, raise the tonearm, and readjust the cartridge position. 6. After completing the adjustment, slowly return the tonearm to the arm rest. Tighten the cartridge mounting screws. Caution: When shifting the cartridge forward or backward, be careful not to let fingers or turn table surface touch stylus tip. The overhang has been factory-adjusted to fit units equipped with Rotel cartridge. Improper setting of the stylus force may cause the stylus to skip grooves or create inferi or sound quality. Moreover, incorrect force could damage record or stylus or both. Follow the procedures below to adjust for specified stylus force of your cartridge. 1. Place the assembled turntable unit on a level surface. 2. Plug the power cord into an AC outlet. Place a record on the platter. 3. Release the arm rest clamp. 4. Press PLAY/REJECT button. The turn table will turn and the tonearm will begin to move to the record. 5. Pull up the cueing stick so that the tone arm floats over the record. 6. Manually return the tonearm to the arm rest, and pull down the cueing stick. Turn and set the antiskating knob to "O". 7. Disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet, and the turntable will stop. 8. Manually detach the tonearm from the arm rest, and perform the following adjust ment, taking care not drop the tonearm. 9. Move the counterweight forward or back ward by rotating it until the tonearm is bal anced. A balanced tonearm should be level, and parallel to the turntable base. Be careful not to let the stylus touch the platter or any other object. 10. Return the tonearm to the arm rest. Turn the stylus force gauge until point o falls on the reference line on the tonearm. Do not turn the counter weight at this time. UVERANGSANIE • Remote Control Terminal On the back of the unit is a socket labeled REMOTE. It is provided for the connection of the remote-control cord that extends from Rotel audio equipment built for wireless remote control of a Rotel audio system. The unit can be remote-controlled by any of the following: RR-860 RCX-860 RR-700 When the unit is properly connected with the above equipment, you can play or reject a record from a distance without touching the unit's operator button. When using the unit in conjunction with the above equipment, first carefully study the instruction manual accompanying the equip ment in order to make proper connections and use the unit correctly. STYLUS FORCE ADJUSTMENT 11. Turn the counterweight clockwise to set the gauge reading to the stylus force des ignated for your cartridge with reference to the line. 12. Turn and set the antiskating knob to the same value as the stylus force of your cartridge. Stylus force adjustment is now complete. Exactly the right stylus force must be obtained for the stylus to trace the groove correctly. MAINTENANCE through a side, the automatic mechanism will be suspended in "play", allowing the turntable to continue rotation. In that case, press the. PLAY/REJECT button to stop the turntable. If you stop the turntable by turning off the amplifier or receiver to which the turntable is connected instead of pressing the PLAYI REJECT button, the following may occur the next time you operate the turntable: a) In manual playing, the turntable will not start when the tonearm is moved over the record; b) Automatic play will not start when the PLAY/REJECT button is pressed. In such cases, initiate normal operation as fol lows: In case a), press the PLAY/REJECT button. In case b), press the PLAY/REJECT button a second time. 1. Keep the stylus tip clean of dust. Clean the stylus carefully using a soft brush, and also clean the record before commencing play. 2. The stylus tip is very sensitive. Be careful not to touch it with a finger nor let it come in contact with solid objects. 3. The stylus is usually good for about 500 to 1,000 hours of continuous playing. A worn stylus will cause the record to be distorted and the record to be damaged. Be sure to use the correct replacement stylus matching your cartridge. 4. Do not move the turntable when it is operating Never try to stop the platter forcibly by hand while it is rotating. 5. When replacing cartridge or stylus, make sure the power cord is unplugged. 6. Lubrication is unnecessary. Consult your dealer if necessity arises. 7. Always keep the unit clean. Use a soft dry cloth to clean the cabinet and the dust cover. ADJUSTING TURNTABLE SPEED HOWLING AND HUM The turntable speed can be fine-adjusted. During play the stroboscope displays strobo scopic bars provided inside the platter rim. The stroboscopic bars will drift when the speed control knob is turned; turning the control knob to "F" direction will move the bars in the direction as the turntable rotation, and turning to "S" direction will move them against the turntable rotation. Proper turntable speed is obtained when the stroboscopic bars remain stationary. The four rows of stroboscopic bars correspond to respective turntable speed vs. household power frequency. Howling is usually caused by vibration of speakers, which affects the sensitive cartridge. If such a phenomenon occurs, relocate the turn table or speakers as far apart from each other as possible. Hum is usually caused by nearby appliances that use transformers or thermostat. Relocating the unit further away from the noise sources will readily solve the problem. 33 50Hz 45" OPERATION Automatic Play 1. Plug the power cord into an AC outlet. 2.
