Main Power Supply Veriﬁcation: Yamaha products are
manufactured speciﬁcally for the supply voltage in the area
where they are to be sold. If you should move, or if any doubt
exists about the supply voltage in your area, please contact your
dealer for supply voltage veriﬁcation and (if applicable) instruc-
tions. The required supply voltage is printed on the name plate.
For name plate location, please refer to the graphic found in the
Special Message Section of this manual.
This product may be equipped with a polarized plug (one
blade wider than the other). If you are unable to insert the plug
into the outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If the problem
persists, contact an electrician to have the obsolete outlet
replaced. Do NOT defeat the safety purpose of the plug.

or adapters. Do NOT connect this type of product to any power
supply or adapter other than one described in the owners manual,

mended! If you must use an extension cord, the minimum wire
size for a 25' cord (or less) is 18 AWG. NOTE: The smaller the
AWG number, the larger the current handling capacity. For
longer extension cords, consult a local electrician.

designed for enclosed installations, should be placed in locations
that do not interfere with proper ventilation. If instructions for
