ˎˎThe AC power cord can be changed only by a
qualified service facility.
On placement
ˎˎDo not place the system in an inclined position
or in locations that are extremely hot, cold, dusty,
dirty, or humid or lacking adequate ventilation,
or subject to vibration, direct sunlight or a bright
light.
ˎˎBe careful when placing the system on surfaces
that have been specially treated (for example,
with wax, oil, polish) as staining or discoloration
of the surface may result.
ˎˎIf the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens inside the
CD player, and cause the system to malfunction.
In this situation, remove the disc, and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
On heat buildup
ˎˎHeat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not cause for alarm.
ˎˎDo not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
cabinet may have become hot.
ˎˎDo not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
This speaker system is not magnetically shielded,
and the picture on nearby TV sets may become
magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off
the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pads, scouring powder,
or solvents, such as thinner, benzine, or alcohol.
Effects on other devices
Speaker section
The radio waves broadcast by this system may
interfere with the operation of some medical
devices. Since this interference may result in
malfunction, always turn off the power on
this system, BLUETOOTH mobile phone and
BLUETOOTH device in the following locations:
In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at gas
stations, and any place where flammable
gasses may be present
Near automatic doors or fire alarms

devices connected with this system must
comply with the BLUETOOTH specification prescribed
by the BLUETOOTH SIG, Inc., and must be certified to

BLUETOOTH wireless
technology
BLUETOOTH wireless technology is a short-range
wireless technology linking digital devices, such
as personal computers and digital still cameras.
Using the BLUETOOTH wireless technology, you
can operate the units involved within a range of
about 10 meters.
The BLUETOOTH wireless technology is commonly
used between two devices, but a single device
can be connected to multiple devices.
You do not need wires to get connected as you
do with a USB connection, and you do not need
to place the devices face to face as you do with
wireless infrared technology. You can use the
technology with one BLUETOOTH device in your
bag or pocket.
BLUETOOTH wireless technology is a global
standard supported by thousands of companies.
These companies produce products that meet the
global standard.
Supported BLUETOOTH version and
profiles
Profile refers to a standard set of capabilities
for various BLUETOOTH product capabilities.
This system supports the following BLUETOOTH
version and profiles.
Supported BLUETOOTH version:
BLUETOOTH Standard version 3.0
Supported BLUETOOTH profiles:
A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile)
AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile)
Notes
ˎTo
ˎ use a BLUETOOTH device connected to this system,
the device must support the same profile as this system.
Note that the functions of the BLUETOOTH device may be
different depending on the specifications of the device,
even if it has the same profile as this system.
of the properties of BLUETOOTH wireless
ˎBecause
ˎ
technology, playback on this system is slightly delayed
compared with audio playback on the transmitting device.
Effective communication range
BLUETOOTH devices should be used within
approximately 10 meters (unobstructed distance)
of each other. The effective communication
range may become shorter under the following
conditions.
When a person, metal object, wall or other
obstruction is between the devices with a
BLUETOOTH connection
Locations where a wireless LAN is installed
Around microwave ovens that are in use
Locations where other electromagnetic waves
occur
Effects of other devices
BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN (IEEE
802.11b/g) use the same frequency band
(2.4 GHz). When using your BLUETOOTH device
near a device with wireless LAN capability,
electromagnetic interference may occur. This
could result in lower data transfer rates, noise,
or inability to connect. If this happens, try the
following remedies:
Try connecting this system and BLUETOOTH
mobile phone or BLUETOOTH device when you
are at least 10 meters away from the wireless
LAN equipment.
Turn off the power to the wireless LAN
equipment when using your BLUETOOTH
device within 10 meters.
