Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR65 has been designed for use
with 120-volt AC current. Connection to a
line voltage other than that for which it
is intended can create a safety and fire
hazard and may damage the unit.
If you have any questions about the volt-
age requirements for your specific model,
or about the line voltage in your area,
contact your selling dealer before plug-
ging the unit into a wall outlet.
Do Not Use Extension Cords
To avoid safety hazards, use only the
power cord attached to your unit. We do
not recommend that extension cords be
used with this product. As with all electri-
cal devices, do not run power cords under
rugs or carpets or place heavy objects on
them. Damaged power cords should be
replaced immediately with cords meeting
Handle the AC Power Cord Gently
When disconnecting the power cord from
an AC outlet, always pull the plug, never
pull the cord. If you do not intend to use
the unit for any considerable length of
time, disconnect the plug from the AC
Do Not Open The Cabinet
There are no user-serviceable compo-
nents inside this product. Opening the
cabinet may present a shock hazard, and
any modification to the product will void
your guarantee. If water or any metal
object such as a paper clip, wire or a
staple accidentally falls inside the unit,
disconnect it from the AC power source
immediately, and consult an authorized
CATV or Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is
connected to this product, be certain that
it is grounded so as to provide some pro-
tection against voltage surges and static
charges. Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and sup-
porting structure, grounding of the lead-
in wire to an antenna discharge unit,
size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes and requirements
of the grounding electrode.
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER:
This reminder is provided to call the
CATV (Cable TV) system installer’s atten-
tion to article 820-40 of the NEC that
provides guidelines for proper grounding
and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the ground-
ing system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as possible.
■ To assure proper operation, and to
avoid the potential for safety hazards,
place the unit on a firm and level sur-
face. When placing the unit on a shelf,
be certain that the shelf and any
mounting hardware can support the
weight of the product.
■ Make certain that proper space is pro-
vided both above and below the unit
for ventilation. If this product will be
installed in a cabinet or other enclosed
area, make certain that there is suffi-
cient air movement within the cabinet.
Under some circumstances a fan may

■ Avoid installation in extremely hot or
cold locations, or an area that is
exposed to direct sunlight or heating
■ Avoid moist or humid locations.
■ Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on
the top of the unit, or place objects
directly over them.
