¶ Install in a level, stable location. Avoid unstable locations,
or locations exposed to strong vibrations.
¶ Do not interfere with the dispersion of heat from the unit.
Avoid using the unit on deep pile carpets or other thick
fabrics, and do not cover the unit with blankets or cloths.
Such usages may interfere with cooling and result in
¶ Do not place other objects on top of the unit.
¶ Install in a location not exposed to other sources of heat.
Avoid installing the unit on top of amplifiers or other
components that emit heat. When mounting the unit in a
rack, avoid the effect of heat from amplifiers and other
audio components by installing the PRV-LX10 as low as
possible beneath the other components in a well-ventilated
position in the rack.
¶ When mounting the unit in a rack, special precautions are
necessary to avoid heat rise inside the unit. As a general
rule, install the unit in a location not exposed to heat from
below, and with at least 10 cm clearance to right and left
and above, to provide for natural convection (ambient
temperature below 35 °C).
Under other conditions, install so that when fully warmed
up, the temperature at a point 5 cm above the center top of
the case is below 35 °C. Provide for the installation of some
means of forced ventilation if necessary.
¶ When connecting multiple PRV-LX10 units in series and
using an external means of controlling power ON/OFF, the
initial current surge will become quite large. Consult your
service dealer regarding the ratings for power switches
used with such an installation.
When using this unit alone, be sure that the power outlet
supplies current sufficient for the component's power
¶ Do not install in fully enclosed rack mounts, since damage
may result from overheating.
Ambient conditions during use should be within the range of
+5 °C to +35 °C (+41 °F to +95 °F) and 85% Relative Humidity
(with ventilation ports not blocked).
7 Prohibited Installation Locations
· Places exposed to direct sunlight or bright artificial light.
· Places exposed to high levels of dust or smoke.
· Places subject to vibration.
· Places subject to strong electrical or magnetic fields.
· Close to heat sources.
· Places exposed to high levels of electrical noise.
· Places liable to the generation of electrostatic noise.
· Places exposed to high humidity or poor ventilation.
· Fully enclosed rack mounts.
During winter months when the unit is moved from a cold
location into a warm room, or when the temperature of the
installation location is raised suddenly, condensation may form
on the unit's internal parts (drive mechanism, laser lens, hard
disk, etc.). When condensation forms, the unit will not operate.
To eliminate the condensation, disconnect the power cord
and allow the unit to warm to room temperature. Depending
on the degree of condensation, this may require 1-2 hours.
Once the unit has warmed sufficiently, it will become
Condensation may also form during summer months if the
cool air from an air conditioner is directed toward the unit. In
this case, change the installation location of the unit or the air
Moving the Unit
If transporting of the unit is required, be sure to use the original
packing materials supplied with the unit, and avoid subjecting
the unit to impact, vibration, or dropping. Also take precautions
to avoid exposing the unit to heat or moisture during the move.
Always remove any discs from the unit before moving. Moving
the unit with a disc loaded may result in scratches to the disc
or internal damage to the drive unit.
7 Special Precautions
Never move the unit during playback or recording. During
playback and recording, the disc is rotating at very high speed,
and lifting or moving the unit during this time may result in
damage to the disc. Subjecting the unit to strong impacts or
vibrations when a disc is loaded may also result in damage to
the disc or internal parts of the unit. When it is necessary to
transport the unit, stop any recording or playback operations,
and remove any disc that is loaded. Remove discs anytime
lifting or moving of the unit is required.
This unit is designed with precision optical devices. Take
special care to control room temperature and dust in the
