When the equipment is installed in a cabinet or a shelf, make sure that it has sufficient space on all sides to
allow for ventilation (10 cm or more on both sides, on top and at the rear.)
When discarding batteries, environmental problems must be considered and the local rules or laws
governing the disposal of these batteries must be followed strictly.

Moisture in the air will condense on the recorder when you move it from a cold place to a warm place, or
under extremely humid conditions—just as water droplets form in the surface of a glass filled with cold
liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where
condensation may occur, keep the recorder turned on for a few hours to let the moisture dry.
