You can enjoy wireless playback of songs stored on a BLUETOOTH device. With devices that have an NFC function (smartphones, tablets, etc.), BLUETOOTH connection can be established easily by simply touching your device to the system.

Start with pairing!

When connecting BLUETOOTH devices, the two devices must register each other in advance.

This is called “pairing.” Pairing must be performed when you connect two devices for the first time. Once a device has been registered through pairing, it does not need to be paired again when connecting to that same device.

There are two methods of pairing: pairing using the NFC function, and pairing by manually activating the BLUETOOTH function. Choose the pairing method that matches your device.

Pairing mode!

After setting the system to pairing mode, search for it on your

BLUETOOTH device to start pairing.

• Discs containing files other than MPEG 1

Audio Layer-3 (MP3)/WMA files

• Discs of non-standard shape (for example, heart, square, star)

• Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or sticker attached to them

• Rental or used discs with attached seals where the glue extends beyond the seal

• Discs that have labels printed using ink that feels tacky when touched

Note on CD-DA/MP3/WMA discs

• Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning cloth from the center out to the edge.

• Do not clean discs with solvents, such as benzine, thinner, or commercially available cleaners or antistatic spray intended for vinyl LPs.

• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

On safety

• Completely disconnect the power cord

(mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not going to be used for an extended period of time. When unplugging the system, always grip the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

• Should any solid object or liquid get into the system, unplug the system, and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it again.

• The AC power cord can be changed only by a qualified service facility.

On placement

• Do 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.

• Do not place the system near lighting fixtures. The heat from the lighting may deform the enclosure and cause the system to malfunction.

• Be 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.

• Do not place heavy objects on the system.

• If 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 system, 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. If the system still does not operate, even after an extended period, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On heat buildup

• Heat buildup on the unit during charging or operation over a long period of time is normal and not cause for alarm.

• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used continuously at a high volume because the cabinet may have become hot.

• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.

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.

On moving the system

Before moving the system, make sure that there is no disc loaded, and remove the power cord from the wall outlet.

On handling discs

• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the surface.

• Do not attach paper or tape to the disc.

• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, or leave them in a car parked in direct sunlight, as the temperature may rise considerably inside the car.

BLUETOOTH wireless technology

BLUETOOTH wireless technology is a shortrange wireless technology that enables wireless data communication between digital devices, such as a computer and digital camera. BLUETOOTH wireless technology operates within a range of about

10 m.

Connecting two devices as necessary is common, but some devices can be connected to multiple devices at the same time.

You do not need to use a cable for connection, nor is it necessary for the devices to face one another, such is the case with infrared technology. For example, you can use such a device in a bag or pocket.

BLUETOOTH standard is an international standard supported by thousands of companies all over the world, and employed by various companies worldwide.

Supported BLUETOOTH version and profiles

Profile refers to a standard set of capabilities for various BLUETOOTH product capabilities.

See “Specifications” (page 38) for details

on the supported BLUETOOTH version and profiles.

Note

• To 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.

• Because of the properties of BLUETOOTH wireless technology, playback on this system is slightly delayed compared with audio playback on the transmitting device.

CMT-SBT20B

4-582-33211(1)

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

Interference from other devices

BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN

(IEEE802.11b/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 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

Interference to other devices

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 and BLUETOOTH device in the following locations:

– In hospitals, on trains, and in airplanes

– Near automatic doors or fire alarms

Note

• This system supports security functions that comply with the BLUETOOTH specification as a means of ensuring security during communication using BLUETOOTH technology.

However, this security may be insufficient depending on the setting contents and other factors, so always be careful when performing communication using BLUETOOTH technology.

• Sony cannot be held liable in any way for damages or other loss resulting from information leaks during communication using BLUETOOTH technology.

• BLUETOOTH communication is not necessarily guaranteed with all BLUETOOTH devices that have the same profile as this system.

• BLUETOOTH devices connected with this system must comply with the BLUETOOTH specification prescribed by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must be certified to comply. However, even when a device complies with the BLUETOOTH specification, there may be cases where the characteristics or specifications of the

BLUETOOTH device make it impossible to connect, or may result in different control methods, display or operation.

• Noise may occur or the audio may cut off depending on the BLUETOOTH device connected with this system, the communications environment, or surrounding conditions.
