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.
Great site, I always find all the manuals I need and i can't find anywhere else. PDF for the Sony PCM 3348 is complete and scan is good quality. Thank you!

The unit is preset to work with a voltage of single phase 230 V. Before making the connection make sure that: â the energy power available in the user's house is sufficient for the normal supply of this appliance (see rating plate). â the unit is correctly connected to earth through a suitable plug and according to the installation country Laws. â the socket or the omnipolar switch used for the connection must be easilv reached with the installed appliance. The appliance is supplied with electric cable, therefore you will have to fit it with a standard plug, suitable for the total electric load shown on the rating plate. The plug is to be inserted into a suitable wall socket. If you wish to directly connect to the mains, you have to interpose an omnipolar switch with a minimum opening between contacts of 3 mm, between the unit and the mains, complying with the existing regulations. The brown live wire (originating from the clamp of the appliance junction box) must always be connected to the phase of the mains supply. In any case, the supply cord must be positioned in such a way as it doesn't reach in any point a temperature higher by 50Â°C than the room temperature.
Replacement of the electric cable
Should the supply cord need to be replaced, use only the following cable types: H07 RN-F, H05 RN-F, H05 RRF, H05 VV-F, H05 V2V2-F (T90), H05 BB-F. It is necessary that the yellow/green earth wire is about 2 cm longer than the live and neutral ones (Fig. 19). After the connection, test the heating elements for about 3 minutes to ensure that they are working correctly. The manufacturer refuses any responsability in cases where normal safety measures are not observed.
