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!!

The safety equipment
The safety equipment
There should be at least 40 cm of worktops on both sides of the cooker (SEE PICTURE). Alternatively the cooker can be installed with a wall or a tall kitchen unit on one side and a worktop on the other. Child safety is further improved if the following equipment is fitted/in use:
min. 40 cm min. 40 cm
The non-tip device should be fitted, to prevent the cooker from tipping if subjected to an abnormal loading. The non-tip device can only provide protection when the cooker is pushed into its normal position.
Before fitting the non-tip device, make sure the cooker has been levelled and adjusted to the correct plinth height (see â€śInstallationâ€ť on p. 17). 1 Draw a line on the wall â€“ after levelling the cooker â€“ along the top edge of the hob (see illustration). 2 The measurements shown can be applied whether the non-tip device is fitted on the left or the right (see illustration). Measure and mark where the non-tip device is to be placed, then screw it onto a solid material or a suitable reinforcement or fixings. NOTE! If the space between kitchen units is wider than the cooker, you will need to alter the measurements shown in the illustration if the cooker is to be centred. 3 If you alter the measurements, remember to align the cooker correctly when pushing it into place, so that the non-tip device enters the hole on the cooker rear.

The hob guard
The hob guard should be fitted to make it harder for children to reach pans on the hob.
1 Press the plugs into the front holes. 2 Place the guard on the cooker with the plugs over the
edge of the hob. 3 Angle the guard downwards and then back upwards so the edges on its two sides engage under the edge of the hob. 4 Lock it in place with the rear plugs.
