WELCOME  
Thank you for purchasing the JENSEN JiMS-520i Docking System.  
Before operating the unit, please read this manual thoroughly and retain it for future reference.  
PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE!!  
This system is equipped with non-skid rubber ‘feet’ to prevent the product from moving when you  
operate the controls. These ‘feet’ are made from non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to  
avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture  
polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber ‘feet’ to soften, and leave marks  
or a rubber residue on the furniture.  
To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive  
felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these  
pads to the bottom of the rubber ‘feet’ before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.  
ABOUT THIS MANUAL  
Instructions in this manual describe using the controls on the remote. You can also use the controls on  
the main unit if they have the same or similar names as those on the remote.

GETTING STARTED  
Unpacking the JiMS-520i Docking System  
Please save all the original packaging. It provides the safest way to transport your unit.
