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 is immaculate in it's accuracy. Everything is written very clearly and easy to understand. Written by a professional who wants to convey a clear and easy to understand message!!
Text excerpt from page 30 (click to view)
You can preset up to 6 stations in each band (FM1, FM2, FM3, and AM) manually. Ex.: Storing FM station of 92.5 MHz into the preset number 1 of the FM1 band.
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.
Select the band (FM1 â 3, AM) you want to store stations into (in this example, FM1).
