Having bought a pre-owned Sony FM stereo tuner through eBay, it came without any manuals. It soon became clear that to get the best from this excellent tuner I needed a decent manual because much of the operation was not intuitive to a newboy to hi fi like me. I managed to download the official Sony multi-lingual manual from Owner-Manuals.com with no problem at all - a really quick and easy service. I'm very glad I did because I found out all the operations of the tuner and was then able to not only set it up quickly but also to get much more from it that poke-and-hope trialling would ever achieve. In my book $4.99 very well spent.
This Manual (as downloaded) is both informative and comprehensive and has proved to be extremely useful. thoroughly recommended.

Notes: â¢ A previously preset station is erased when a new station is stored in the same preset number. â¢ Preset stations are erased when the power supply to the memory circuit is interrupted (for example, during battery replacement). If this occurs, preset the stations again.
You can easily tune in to a preset station. Remember that you must store stations first. If you have not stored them yet, see âStoring stations in memoryâ on pages 12 and 13.
Select the band (FM1 â 3, AM).
Each time you press the button, the band changes as follows:
Select the number (1 â 6) for the preset station you want.
Note: You can also use the 5 (up) or â (down) button on the unit to select the next or previous preset stations. Each time you press the 5 (up) or â (down) button, the next or previous preset station is tuned in.
Repeat the above procedure to store other stations into other preset numbers.
