Do not move or tilt the player when discs are loaded in the drawer as damage to the player and/or discs may result.

Make sure the player is turned off, and remove the power cord from its AC power source if you plan to leave the system
unattended for long periods of time.

Do not use or store the GOD-700 on or near vibrating surfaces, sources of heat, in extremely cold areas, in areas of high
humidity in dusty or smoky environments, or in poorly ventilated areas as the proper operation of the player may be adversely

Try to avoid conditions which will cause condensation to form on the optical system of the player which will impair or prevent
proper playback. This includes bringing the player into a warm house when it is cold outside or storage in areas where the
temperature will cycle between the extremes. In the event condensation occurs, wait at least thirty minutes before use,

if the GOD-700 is operated while listening to an AM or FM broadcast, there may be the unlikely possibility of noise or
interference being radiated into the tuner degrading its reception. If this occurs, please turn off the CD player.

if the CD player or its interconnecting cables are placed near a television or other component, a humming sound may develop.
in the unlikely event this happens, please relocate the player or reroute its cables.

surface. Try placing the player on a different surface if problems persist.

c When making track selections, searching, or if the player is subjected to a strong impact, the disc’s rotational speed

changes greatly and may cause a small noise to be emitted from the player. This is not a malfunction and doe not indicate
a problem.
