On BLUETOOTH

Communication

• BLUETOOTH devices should be used within approximately 10 meters (33 feet)

(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

• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN

(IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) 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:

– Use this system at least 10 meters

(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN device.

– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN device when using your BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters (33 feet).

– Install this system and BLUETOOTH device as closer to each other as possible.

• 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, in airplanes, at gas stations, and any place where flammable gasses may be present

– Near automatic doors or fire alarms

• This system supports security functions that comply with the BLUETOOTH specification to ensure secure connection during communication using BLUETOOTH technology. However, this security may be insufficient depending on the setting content 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.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Precautions

On safety

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

• Do not climb on the unit and subwoofer, as you may fall down and injure yourself, or system damage may result.

On power sources

• Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage is identical to your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the bottom of the unit.

• If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet (mains). To disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

• One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the purpose of safety and will fit into the wall outlet (mains) only one way.

If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer.

• AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at a qualified service shop.

On heat buildup

Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction. If you continuously use this system at high volume, the system temperature at the rear and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the system.

On placement

• Do not place the system near heat sources or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

• Do not place anything at the rear of the unit and subwoofer that might block the ventilation holes and cause malfunctions.

74

GB

• Do not place metal objects other than a

TV around the system. Wireless functions may be unstable.

• If the system is being used in combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, noise may result and picture quality may suffer. In such a case, place the system away from the TV, VCR, or tape deck.

• Use caution when placing the system on a surface that has been specially treated

(with wax, oil, polish, etc.), as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

• Take care to avoid any possible injury from the corners of the unit and subwoofer.

• Keep 3 cm or more space under the unit when you hang it on a wall.

• The speakers of this system are not of magnetically shielded type. Do not place magnetic cards on the system or near it.

On handling the subwoofer

Do not place your hand into the slit of the subwoofer when lifting it. The speaker driver may be damaged. When lifting it, hold the bottom of the subwoofer.

On operation

Before connecting other devices, be sure to turn off and unplug the system.

If you encounter color irregularity on a nearby TV screen

Color irregularities may be observed on certain types of TV sets.

If color irregularity is observed...

Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after 15 to 30 minutes.

If color irregularity is observed again...

Place the system further away from the TV set.

On cleaning

Clean the system with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.

If you have any question or problem concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Disclaimer regarding services offered by third parties

Services offered by third parties may be changed, suspended, or terminated without prior notice. Sony does not bear any responsibility in these sorts of situations.

Notes on updating

This system allows you to update the software automatically when connected to the Internet via a wired or wireless network.

You can add new features and use the system with more convenience and safety by updating the system.

If you do not want to update automatically, you can disable the function by using

SongPal installed on your smartphone or tablet. However, the system may update the software automatically for reasons such as safety, even if this function is disabled. You can also update the software using the settings menu when this function

is disabled. Refer to “Using the Setup

Display” (page 47) for details.

You may not use the system while the software is being updated.

LDAC is an audio coding technology developed by Sony that enables the transmission of High-Resolution (Hi-Res)

Audio content, even over a Bluetooth connection. Unlike other Bluetooth compatible coding technologies such as

SBC, it operates without any downconversion of the Hi-Res Audio content*, and allows approximately three times more data** than those other technologies to be transmitted over a Bluetooth wireless network with unprecedented sound quality, by means of efficient coding and optimized packetization.

* excluding DSD format contents

**in comparison with SBC (Subband

Coding) when the bitrate of 990 kbps

(96/48 kHz) or 909 kbps (88.2/44.1 kHz) is selected
