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.

To otain the best performance from the cabinet, ensure : â¢ the cabinet is placed in a dry, cool place and is not exposed to direct sunlight. â¢ the cabinet is not placed close to a source of heat, e.g. a cooker or dishwasher. â¢ the room in which the cabinet is placed has a temperature of +16ÂC to +32ÂC. â¢ the cabinet is level.The cabinet should not lean against any wall. If necessary adjust the feet using the supplied adjustment spanner. â¢ there is good air circulation around the cabinet and that the air channels below and behind the cabinet are not blocked. The ventilation space above the cabinet and any grocery/top cabinet must be at least 200 cm2. The ventilation space can either be a) directly above the cabinet, or b) behind and above the top cabinet. In this case, the space behind the cabinet must be at least 50 mm deep. If the cabinet is placed in a corner and the side with the hinges faces the wall, the distance between the wall and the cabinet must be at least 10 mm to allow the door to open enough so that the shelves can be removed.
