Having purchased a 1994 Kenwood music system from a Charity shop in 2013 (it was a high end product in its day), I found myself not quite knowing where to plug in what, and how to do this, that and the next thing. I needed a Manual, and after failure with another online 'Manual provider' I found Owner Manuals dot com. Well, I wasn't sure, but it was only $5, and if things didn't work out, I wouldn't have lost much...
But things DID work out. After paying my childrens inheritance money, $4.99, I was sent a Manual for my Kenwood System very quickly. Alas, it was in German, and being Scottish, I could not read it or get my system in order from it...a rapid email to them brought the English Manual in short order, and my retro-system was and IS up and running in it's regulation settings.
I am very grateful to http://www.owner-manuals.com for their quick service and for even having such an obsolete Manual in the first place! If you need a Manual for ANYTHING, try here first. I wouldn't be surprised if I bought a 1928 Marconi radio, and got the user Manual for THAT here too!
Thanks so much for the Owner's manual for my Sony PS - FL1. I had purchased the turntable off of eBay. It came in and looked great. Packed well and appeared to be great. I balanced and aligned the tone are and hooked it up. When trying to play a record the tone are would move to the right place and just before it would drop to play it moved back off the edge of the record before touching down. I searched the net for an answer to this issue. No luck. Then I purchased the owners manual and sure enough there was a place to adjust where the stylus touched down. That adjustment solved the problem and saved me a $35 feet to have the player checked out. The manual is well written and easy to understand. It is a must have for anyone with this front loading Sony turntable.
Some years back I pruchased a Sansui G-9000. I had it cleaned up and a problem with the left channel repaired. When I got it back I hooked it up to my tape decks, turn tables, TV and it played great. The only thing I was not really satisfied with was the performance of my Graphic Equalizer. I purchased this owner's manual had poured myself a cup of coffee. The manual is well organized and written in plain language. It also contained the solution to my dissatisfaction. By using the preamp connections coupled I was able to run everything through my graphic equalizer and now enjoy the full potential of my complete system.

Istruzioni per lâ€™installatore
Inserimento e fissaggio
Il fissaggio del piano al mobile deve es sere effettuato come segue: â€¢ posizionate lâ€™apposita guarnizione sigil lante, fornita in dotazione, sul bordo dei lati frontale e posteriore della sfondatura, e a 50 mm. dai bordi laterali (vedi Fig. 5), avendo cura che le estremitÃ combacino senza sormontarsi; â€¢ sistemate il piano nella sfondatura del mobile curandone la centratura; â€¢ fissate il piano al mobile con gli appositi squadretti (vedi Fig. 6). La trazione delle viti Ã¨ sufficiente a tracciare il sigillante, il cui eccesso potrÃ cosÃ¬ essere agevolmente asportato. Il bordo del piano realizza un doppio labirinto di tenuta che offre unâ€™assoluta garanzia contro le infiltrazioni di liquidi.
PossibilitÃ di inserimento
Su mobile base con portina Nella costruzione del mobile Ã¨ necessario vengano presi adeguati accorgimenti in modo da evitare possibili contatti con la scatola del piano surriscaldata durante il funzionamento dello stesso. La soluzione consigliata per evitare tale inconveniente Ã¨ illustrata nella Figura 7. Il pannello sotto il piano dovrÃ essere fa cilmente rimovibile per consentire, in caso di intervento dell'assistenza tecnica, il bloccaggio e lo sbloccaggio del piano.
a) Pannello del mobile smontabile b) Spazio per eventuali allacciamenti 18
