Using the Timers

The timers lets you control recording and listening functions auto-
matically.
Three types of timers are available:
DAILY Timer
Use this timer to set wake up everyday to music from any
source, instead of an alarm clock.
REC (Recording) Timer
Unattended recording of radio broadcasts. You can set the
starting time and ending time.
SLEEP Timer
Fall asleep and have your System turn off automatically after
a certain length of time.

Setting the Clock

When you plug the AC power cord into the wall outlet, the time in-
dication 0:00 blinks on the display.
You can set the clock whether the System is on or off.
The clock must be correctly set for the timers to work.
Each setting step must be completed within approx. two
minutes. Otherwise, the setting is cleared and must be re-
peated from the beginning.
The clock may gain or lose one to two minutes per month.
