    Follow all security advice printed on your mixer

    When removing the unit's AC plug from the power source, grasp and pull the plug, NEVER the cord itself!

    Avoid placing your mixer near heat sources, such as power amplifiers.

    When in use, place your mixer on a stable surface, away from vibration. Always use care when carrying your mixer. Impact, or heavy vibration may compromise the unit's mechanical integrity. The manufacturer is not responsible for damage resulting from an impact, or misuse.

    When in use, place your mixer away from sources of hum or noise, such as transformers, or electric motors.

    To prevent overheating, always provide your mixer with adequate ventilation air space.

    Avoid stepping on your mixer's AC cord. Repeated compression of the cord may lead to electrical shorting.

    To avoid damage due to AC voltage peaks, always disconnect your mixer from the power source during electrical storms. If possible connect mixer to a surge protector.

    Your mixer contains no user-serviceable parts. The manufacturer is not responsible for any damage or personal injury resulting from unauthorized user-servicing or modifications. In addition, the warranty will be void if any unauthorized service by the user is detected. Always return your mixer to an authorized Stanton dealer for servicing.
