As the S-AIR product transmits sound by radio waves,
sound may skip when radio waves are obstructed.
This is a characteristic of radio waves and is not a
malfunction.
As the S-AIR product transmits sound by radio waves,
equipment that generates electromagnetic energy,
such as a microwave oven, may interfere with sound
transmission.
As the S-AIR product uses the radio waves that share
the same frequency as other wireless systems, such
as wireless LAN or Bluetooth devices, interference or
poor transmission may result. In this case, take the
following steps:
Do not install the S-AIR product near other wireless
systems.
Do not use the S-AIR product and the other wireless
systems at the same time.
The transmission distance differs depending on
the usage environment. Find a location where
transmission between the unit and the S-AIR main
unit is most effective, and install the unit and the SAIR main unit there.
On safety
This symbol on the battery or on the packaging
indicates that the battery provided with this product
shall not be treated as household waste. On certain
batteries this symbol might be used in combination
with a chemical symbol. The chemical symbols for
mercury (Hg) or lead (Pb) are added if the battery
contains more than 0.0005% mercury or 0.004% lead.
By ensuring these batteries are disposed of correctly,
you will help prevent potentially negative consequences
for the environment and human health which could
otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of
the battery. The recycling of the materials will help to
conserve natural resources.
In case of products that for safety, performance or data
integrity reasons require a permanent connection with
an incorporated battery, this battery should be replaced
by qualified service staff only. To ensure that the battery
will be treated properly, hand over the product at endof-life to the applicable collection point for the recycling
of electrical and electronic equipment.
For all other batteries, please view the section on how
to remove the battery from the product safely. Hand the
battery over to the applicable collection point for the
recycling of waste batteries.

S-AIR (Sony Audio Interactive Radio
frequency)
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of DVD
media, Digital Broadcasting, and other high-quality
media.
To ensure that the subtle nuances of these highquality media are transmitted with no deterioration,
Sony has developed a technology called “S-AIR” for
the radio transmission of digital audio signals with no
compression, and has incorporated this technology
into the EZW-RT10/EZW-RT10A.
This technology transfers digital audio signals with
no compression using the 2.4 GHz band range of ISM
band (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical band), such
as wireless LANs and Bluetooth applications.
