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.

HINTS AND TIPS Use the Convenience oven when you want to warm plates. Use a setting of 80Â°C - 100Â°C on the oven temperature control. You can use both shelves when using the fan assisted oven. There should always be at least 2.5cm (1") between the top of the food and the grill element. This gives best cooking results and allows room for rise in yeast mixtures, Yorkshire puddings etc. When cooking cakes, pastry, scones bread etc., place the tins or baking trays centrally on the shelf.
Ensure that food is placed centrally on the shelf and there is sufficient room around the baking tray or dish to allow for maximum circulation. Where a degree of evenness in baking is required, it may be necessary to interchange food during cooking. Where a larger quantity of food is to be cooked we recommend you use the main fan oven. Place dishes on a suitably sized baking tray on the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven base and to help reduce cleaning. The material and finish of the baking tray and dishes will affect the degree of base browning of the food. Enamelware, dark, heavy or non-stick utensils increase base browning. Shiny aluminium or polished steel trays reflect the heat away and give less base browning. For economy leave the door open for the shortest possible time, particularly when placing food into a pre-heated oven. Do not use the grill pan or meat tin as a baking tray as this will increase base browning of the food. Because of the smaller cooking space and lower temperatures, shorter cooking times are sometimes required. Be guided by the recommendations in the cooking chart. When roasting we recommend that you use the trivet in the meat tin. Fat and meat juices will drain into the meat tin below and can be used to make gravy. The trivet also prevents splashes of fat from soiling the oven interior. Note. The meat tin should not be placed on a heated hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack.
