EXPANDING
YOUR AUDIO LINK
The BoseŠ link AR1 Wireless Audio Receiver
Your AR1 receiver works with the Bose® link AL8 Homewide
Wireless Audio Link transmitter. It provides wireless audio
reception for Bose link expansion room systems, amplifiers, or powered speakers.
You can also use it with some older Bose products that are not Bose link compatible or with a tuner/receiver or a pair of
powered speakers that are not from Bose.
Note: Use of the AR1 receiver with a product that is not Bose link
compatible requires a special adapter cable. For further information, refer to “Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products”
on page 6.
Getting it ready
• Check the AR1 receiver connection panel to make sure the
Setup Code switches are set to match those on the connection panel of the AL8 transmitter. This ensures compatibility.
Note: For further information on the Setup Code, refer to the
owner’s guide that came with your AL8 Homewide Wireless
Audio Link.
• Place the receiver within 7 feet (2 meters) of the product it
connects to (using the supplied Bose link A cable).
• Place it within 80 feet (24 meters) of the AL8 transmitter.
• Keep it upright with all feet flat on a level surface, such as a
floor, table, or shelf.
• Do not tip it on its side.
Connecting to a BoseŠ link compatible product
These instructions are for use of the AR1 receiver with a Bose
link compatible expansion product only. If they are not appropriate, refer to “Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products” on page 6.
1.
Connect one end of the supplied Bose link A cable into
the Bose link OUTPUT jack on the AR1 receiver.
2.
Connect the other end of the cable to the Bose link Input
jack on the expansion room system, amplifier, or powered
speaker (Figure 1 on page 6).

Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products
The AR1 receiver can connect to some products that are not
Bose link compatible, including:
• Non-Bose products like a tuner/receiver or powered speaker
system
• Bose powered speakers, a radio, or system with its own volume and on/off controls and line-level female RCA input
jacks connected to the receiver
Any of the above products require the use of an RCA to DIN
adapter cable for connecting to the receiver. An adapter kit,
which contains two of these cables, is available from Bose.
Note: To order the adapter kit, contact Bose and request Part
Number 285320-207. For Bose contact information, refer to the
address sheet included in the carton.

OPERATION
Check the indicators and settings
Before you use this addition to the audio link, you may want to
check some of the indicators and settings that make your
expansion products work together smoothly.
The Status LED
On the connection panel of both the transmitter and the
receiver, the Status LED indicates how the two units are communicating, as shown in the table below.

LEDs to change to solid green. For further information, refer to
“Troubleshooting” on page 9.
Your Bose® link expansion room remote control
• Room code
If you have more than one LIFESTYLE® system expansion
room set up, make sure the remote used in each one has a
unique room code.
• House code
The house code setting on the remote must match the setting on your LIFESTYLE® system. This is an issue only if you
have changed the system house code due to interference
with another Bose LIFESTYLE® system.
For information on these house code and room code settings
and how to change them, refer to the owner’s guide that came
with your remote.
Note: Setup codes for the AL8 transmitter and AR1 receiver,
which must be identical to each other, do NOT need to match
house codes on the remote or LIFESTYLE® system.

CONFIRMING OPERATION
Your Bose® link expansion room product
• Room code
Make sure the system, amplifier, or powered speaker room
code setting matches that of the remote you are using in the
expansion room.
For information on room code settings and how to change
them, refer to the owner’s guide that came with your Bose® link
product.
Troubleshooting
Problem
What to do
No sound
•
For both the AL8 transmitter and AR1 receiver, make sure:
– the audio source is plugged in, turned on, and working.
– the Bose® link A cable is securely connected at both ends.
Refer to “Connecting to a BoseŠ link compatible product” on
page 5.
– the small connector end of the power cord is inserted firmly
into the AC Power jack on the connection panel and the
power pack is plugged securely into a working AC outlet.
– the Setup code switches on the connection panel of the
transmitter and the receiver are set identically. There are four
options: 1 & 2 up; 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up.
– the Status LEDs are lit a solid green to indicate solid communication between the two parts. If not, refer to the next problem in this table.
•
For the expansion room products, make sure:
– the system, amplifier, or powered speaker is plugged in and
turned on. On an SA-2 or SA-3 amplifier in that room, make
sure the status LED is lit to indicate the amplifier is working.
– the room code is set on the Bose link remote control or
PERSONAL® music center II to match the room codes on
the amplifier or powered speaker and are unique to this
expansion room.
– the house code is set on the Bose link remote control or
PERSONAL music center II to match the house code of the
LIFESTYLE® system in the main room.
Above problem persists and the Status LED
lights are not
solid green
•
•
•
Move the receiver and transmitter closer together.
Move the receiver, the transmitter, or both so the transmission
path between them does not intersect with large metal objects
(like a refrigerator), impervious construction materials (like thick
masonry) or other obstructions (like a pool of water).
Check to see if the Status LEDs turn green as a result of the
above efforts. For details, refer to “Check the indicators and
settings” on page 8.

Change the Setup code switches on both the transmitter and the
receiver, making sure they are identical. This may prevent signals
from another AL8 transmitter in the vicinity from reaching your
receiver.
There are four possible switch combinations: 1 & 2 up (as set at the
factory); 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up.
Unexpected
sound from
the media center
Change the house code settings in both your LIFESTYLE® system
and any remote controls you are using with it.
This may prevent another nearby LIFESTYLE® system from affecting the operation of your system.
For further information on house codes and how to change them,
refer to the owner’s guides that came with your LIFESTYLE® system
and Bose® link remote controls.
•
For interference with a Wifi network, use the Channel button on
the connection panel of the transmitter to alleviate the problem.
For details, refer to the owner’s guide that came with your AL8
Homewide Wireless Audio Link.
For interference with a telephone, TV or other electronic device,
move the transmitter or receiver farther from the device.
Reposition the transmitter so it is in a more open area.
Move the receiver farther from the microwave.
