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!!

Precautions for daily use â¢ When moving the speakers, do not pull the speaker cords; otherwise, the speakers may fall over, causing damage or injury. â¢ Do not reproduce sounds at so high a volume that they are distorted; otherwise, the speakers may be damaged by internal heat buildup. â¢ When holding a speaker, always grasp the lower portion. â¢ Do not lean against the speakers, as the speakers could fall down or break, possibly causing an injury. Especially be careful that children do not lean against them.
