sunlight, strong magnetic fields,
excessive dust, humidity and electronic/electrical equipment (home
computers, facsimiles, etc.) which
generate electrical noise.
●● Do not place anything on top of the
unit.
●● Do not expose the unit to moisture,
to temperatures higher than 60°C
(140°F) or to extremely low temperatures.
●● If the unit does not work properly,
unplug and plug it in again. Then
turn on the unit.
●● In case of an electrical storm, unplug the unit for safety.
●● Hold the AC power plug by the
head when removing it from the wall
socket, as pulling the lead can damage internal wires.
●● The AC power plug is used as a
disconnect device and shall always
remain readily operable.
●● Do not remove the outer cover, as
this may result in electric shock.
Refer internal service to your local SHARP service facility.
●● The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the ventilation
openings with items, such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc.
●● No naked flame sources, such as
lighted candles, should be placed
on the apparatus.
●● Attention should be drawn to the
environmental aspects of battery
disposal.
■■ Volume control
The sound level at a given volume
setting depends on speaker efficiency,
location and various other factors.
It is advisable to avoid exposure to
high volume levels, which occurs
while turning the unit on with the
volume control setting up high, or while
continually listening at high volumes.

Bluetooth one touch connection via NFC
Unlike other wireless technology, NFC
requires no discovery or pairing.
Simply tap the source device to NFC
detection area on the main unit or the
NFC tag to instantly enjoy seamless
connectivity between your smart device
and the audio system.
■■ About NFC technology
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of
standards for devices (smartphones/tablets)
to establish radio communication with each
other by touching/tapping them together or
bringing them into close proximity.
Using NFC in this product simplifies the
pairing method of Bluetooth connectivity.
■■ NFC detection area
Notes for Android devices
NFC detection area location may vary
depending on the device (smartphone/
tablet). Refer operation manual of the
device for detail.
●● This audio system supports NFC-
enabled device with Android 4.1, Jelly
Bean and higher.
●● For device with a lower Android version,
refer the operation manual of the device
for recommended app (application).

Listening to Bluetooth enabled devices
Bluetooth wireless technology is a short-range radio
technology that enables wireless communication
between various types of digital devices, such as
mobile phone or computer. It operates within a range
of about 10 metres (30 feet) without the hassle of
having to use cables to connect these devices.
This sound bar supports the following:
Communication System: Bluetooth Specification
version 2.1 Bluetooth + Enhanced Data Rate
(EDR).
Support Profile : A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution
Profile) and AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control
Profile)
Notes when using unit with a mobile phone
●● This unit cannot be used to talk over the
telephone even when there is a Bluetooth
connection made to a mobile phone.
●● Please refer to the operating manual supplied
with the mobile phone for details on operation of
your mobile phone while transmitting the sound
using a Bluetooth connection.
■■ Pairing with other Bluetooth
source device
1 Press the ON/STANDBY button to turn the
power on.
2 Press the INPUT button to select Bluetooth
function. (PAIRING indicator blinks.)
3 Press and hold the PAIRING button for 3 sec-

■■ Pairing Bluetooth devices
Bluetooth devices need to be initially paired first
before they can exchange data. Once paired, it is
not necessary to pair them again unless:
●● pairing is made with more than 99 devices.
Pairing can only be made one device at
a time. This sound bar can be paired to
a maximum of 99 devices. If subsequent
device is paired, the oldest device paired, will
be deleted and replaced with the new one.
●● pairing information is deleted while repairing,
etc.

other Bluetooth source device.
Perform pairing procedure on the source device
to detect this sound bar. “HT-SB32D SHARP”
will appear in the detected devices list (if available) in the source device. (Refer the source
device operating manual for details).
Notes:
● Place the devices to be paired within 1 metre
(3 feet) of each other when pairing.
● Some source devices are unable to display lists of
detected devices. To pair this sound bar with the
source device, refer to the source device operating manual for details.
Select “HT-SB32D SHARP” from the source list.
If Passcode* is required, enter “0000”.
* Passcode may be called PIN Code, Passkey, PIN
number or Password.
Pairing indicator (blue) will stop blinking once the
sound bar is successfully paired with the source
device. (Pairing information is now memorised
in the sound bar.)
Some audio source devices may connect with the
sound bar automatically after pairing is completed,
otherwise follow the instructions in the source device
operating manual to start connection.
Press the play button on remote control or
source device to start Bluetooth streaming
playback.
Listening to Bluetooth enabled devices (continued)
Notes:
●● If a device such as microwave oven, wireless
LAN card, Bluetooth device or any other device
that uses the same 2.4 GHz frequency is placed
near the system some sound interruption may
be heard.
●● The transmission distance of the wireless
signal between the device and the sound bar
is about 10 m, but may vary depending on
your operating environment. If a steel concrete
or metallic wall is between the device and the
sound bar, the system may not operate at all,
because the wireless signal cannot penetrate
metal.
●● If this sound bar or the source device is turned
off before Bluetooth connection is completed,
pairing will not be completed and the pairing
information will not be memorised. Repeat step
1 onwards to start pairing again.
●● To pair with other devices, repeat steps 1 - 5
for each device.
This sound bar can be paired to a maximum
of 99 devices. If subsequent device is paired,
the oldest device paired, will be deleted and
replaced with the new one.
●● Once a device is ousted or deleted from the
pairing list, the pairing information for the
device is also deleted. To listen to the sound
from the device again, it needs to be re-paired.
Perform steps 1 - 5 to pair the device again.
●● HT-SB32D supports Bluetooth profile AVRCP
1.4. If your device supports the same profile
(refer to device manufacturer’s specification),
HT-SB32D is able to control the volume of
the device.
Note:
Some music applications do not support
this feature, hence there will be no volume
synchronisation between your device and
the sound bar even if your Bluetooth device
supports such profile.
●● Pairing of this sound bar and the source device
is completed.
●● Sound bar is in connected mode (pairing
indicator (BLUE) lights up.)
●● Any device connected to the AUDIO IN or
OPTICAL IN socket is turned off.
1 Press the ON/STANDBY button to turn the
power on.
2 Press the INPUT button to select Bluetooth
function.
3 Start the Bluetooth connection from the
Bluetooth stereo audio source device.
4 Playback will start automatically, otherwise
press play (on the remote control or the
source device).
Notes:
●● For various Bluetooth operations, refer “NFC
connection for audio playback” on page 15.
●● If the source device has an extra bass
function or equaliser function, set them to
off. If these functions are on, sound may be
distorted.
Notes:
●● Make the Bluetooth connection again if the
source device is not turned on, or its Bluetooth
functionality is off or is in sleep mode.
■■ To disconnect the Bluetooth
device
Perform any of the followings.
-Disconnect the Bluetooth connection on the
audio source device.
Refer the operating manual supplied with the
device.
-Turn off the Bluetooth stereo audio source
device.
-Turn off this sound bar.
