Having bought a pre-owned Sony FM stereo tuner through eBay, it came without any manuals. It soon became clear that to get the best from this excellent tuner I needed a decent manual because much of the operation was not intuitive to a newboy to hi fi like me. I managed to download the official Sony multi-lingual manual from Owner-Manuals.com with no problem at all - a really quick and easy service. I'm very glad I did because I found out all the operations of the tuner and was then able to not only set it up quickly but also to get much more from it that poke-and-hope trialling would ever achieve. In my book $4.99 very well spent.
Great site, I always find all the manuals I need and i can't find anywhere else. PDF for the Sony PCM 3348 is complete and scan is good quality. Thank you!

The ambient temperature has an effect on the energy consumption and proper operation of the appliance. When placing, take into consideration that it is practical to operate the appliance between ambient temperature limits according to the climate class that is given in the chart below and can be found in the data label. Class of climate SN N ST Ambient temperature +10 ... +32 Â°C +16 ... +32 Â°C +18 ... + 38 Â°C
If the ambient temperature goes below the lower data the temperature of the cooling compartment can go beyond the prescribed temperature. If the ambient temperature goes beyond the upper data this means longer operating time of the compressor, breakdown in the automatic defrosting increasing temperature in the cooling compartment or increasing energy consumption. When placing the appliance ensure that it stands level. This can be achieved by two adjustable feet (1) at the bottom in front. 1-1 piece of distance washer (2) are accessories of the adjustable feet. If levelling the appliance requires, these washers can be removed. Do not stand the appliance on a sunny place or close to a radiator or cooker. If it is unavoidable because of furnishing and the appliance has to be stood near a cooker take these minimum distances into consideration: In case of gas or electric cooker 3 cm must be left, when it is less put a 0,5-1 cm non-flam insulation between the two appliances. In case of oil or coal-fired stove the distance must be 30 cms since they give off more heat. The refrigerator is designed to operate when it is totally pushed to the wall. When placing the refrigerator keep minimal distances recommended in figure. A : placing it under a wall-cupboard B : placing it freely
