Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.

! The sound quality of WAV files generally becomes better with a larger number of quantization bits. This unit can play recordings with 8 and 16 (LPCM) or 4 (MS ADPCM) quantization bits, but in order to be able to enjoy sound of a certain quality, we recommend using discs recorded with the larger number of quantization bits.

Notes ! This unit assigns folder numbers. The user can not assign folder numbers. ! It is not possible to check folders that do not include MP3/WMA/WAV files. (These folders will be skipped without displaying the folder number.) ! MP3/WMA/WAV files in up to 8 tiers of folders can be played back. However, there is a delay in the start of playback on discs with numerous tiers. For this reason we recommend creating discs with no more than 2 tiers. ! It is possible to play back up to 99 folders on one disc.
