Yamaha TSS-1 Owner Manual


Please read the following operating precautions before use.
YAMAHA will not be held responsible for any damage
and/or injury caused by not following the cautions below.
When you disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC
receptacle, hold the plug itself and not the cord.
If you plan not to use this system for a while, disconnect
the AC adaptor from the AC receptacle.
Always disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC
receptacle before making any connections.
This system does not contain any user serviceable parts.
Refer all servicing to your Yamaha dealer.
Never open the cabinet. If a foreign object drops into
the set, contact your dealer and stop using this system.
Otherwise, you may cause a fire.
Do not expose this system to extreme temperatures,
direct sunlight, excessive dust, humidity, or vibration.
Position this system on a level, stable surface. Do not
drop, apply excessive force to its controls, or put heavy
items on top of it.
Do not place small metallic objects on this system.
Otherwise, the object may fall, possibly causing an injury.
Since the amplifier unit has a built-in power amplifier,
heat will radiate from the ventilation slits. Place the
amplifier unit apart from the walls, allowing a space of at
least 20 cm (7-7/8”) above, 10 cm (3-15/16”) behind and
on both sides of the amplifier unit.
Also, do not position with the rear panel facing down on
the floor or other surfaces and do not cover the amplifier
unit with a newspaper, a tablecloth, a curtain, etc. in
order not to obstruct heat radiation.
If the temperature inside the amplifier unit rises, it may
cause fire, damage to the amplifier unit and/or personal
Do not place the following objects on this system:
Glass, china, etc.
If glass etc. falls by vibrations and breaks, it may cause
personal injury.
A burning candle etc.
If the candle falls by vibrations, it may cause fire and
personal injury.
A vessel with water in it
If the vessel falls by vibrations and water spills, it may
cause damage to this system, and/or you may get an
electric shock.
To protect this system, avoid microphone feedback,
continuous and excessive output from electronic musical
instruments, and excessive signal distortion.
If this system is located close to a monitor, or fluorescent
or neon lights, a slight hum may be heard. In this case,
relocate this system away from the light.
Although this system is magnetically shielded, keep
floppy disks and tapes away from it.
Avoid sources of hum (transformers, motors). To prevent
fire or electrical shock, do not expose to rain or water.
Do not use force on switches, knobs, or cables. When
you move this system, first turn off the power, then
disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC receptacle and
the cables from the connected devices.
Always set the MASTER VOLUME control fully to the left
before starting to play the audio source: turn the control
gradually after playback has started.
Be sure to only use the AC adaptor (PA-SR601)
supplied with this system.  Otherwise, you might
cause a fire or damage to this system.
Standby mode
When this system is turned off by pressing the power
switch, this system consumes a small amount of power.
This state is called the standby mode.   The power
supply is completely cut off from the AC line only when
the AC adaptor is disconnected.
This system features a magnetically shielded design, but
there is still a chance that placing it too close to a TV or
a computer monitor might impair picture color. Should
this happen, move this system away from the TV or the
computer monitor.
or U.K. customers
If the socket outlets in the home are not suitable for the plug
supplied with this appliance, it should be cut off and an
appropriate 3 pin plug fitted. For details, refer to the
instructions described below.
Note: The plug severed from the mains lead must be
destroyed, as a plug with bared flexible cord is hazardous if
engaged in a live socket outlet.
Brown: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows: The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter
N or coloured BLACK.  The wire which is coloured
BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter L or coloured RED.  Making sure
that neither core is connected to the earth terminal of the
three pin plug.
