About wireless LAN security
Since communication via the wireless LAN
function is established by radio waves, the
wireless signal may be susceptible to
interception. To protect wireless
communication, this system supports various
security functions. Be sure to correctly
configure the security settings in accordance
with your network environment.
No Security
Although you can easily make settings, anyone
can intercept wireless communication or intrude
into your wireless network, even without any
sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a
risk of unauthorized access or interception of
data.
56GB
WEP
WEP applies security to communications to
prevent outsiders from intercepting
communications or intruding into your wireless
network. WEP is a legacy security technology
that enables older device which do not support
TKIP/AES to be connected.
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK
(TKIP)
TKIP is a security technology developed in
response to the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP
assures a higher security level than WEP.
WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)
AES is a security technology that uses an
advanced security method distinct from WEP
and TKIP.
AES assures a higher security level than WEP or
TKIP.

Additional Information
Precautions
On safety
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects
filled with liquids, such as vases, on the system, or
place the system near water, such as near a bathtub or
shower room. Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the system and have it
checked by qualified personnel before operating it
any further.
• Do not touch the AC power cord (mains lead) with
wet hands. Doing so may cause an electric shock.
On power sources
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet (mains) if you do
not intend to use it for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug, never by
the cord.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet
becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction.
However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do
not place the system in a confined space where
ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.
• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything
on the system. The system is equipped with a high
power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked,
the system can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on surfaces (rugs, blankets,
etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may
block the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the system in a confined space, such as
a bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not install the system near heat sources such as
radiators, air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
• Do not install the system in an inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the system and discs away from components
with strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or
large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the system.
64GB
• 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 lenses inside the unit. Should
this occur, the system may not operate properly. In
this case, remove the disc and leave the system turned
on for about half an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc. If you
do not, the disc may be damaged.
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On adjusting volume
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
section is suddenly played.
On cleaning
• Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do
not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens
cleaners
• Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may cause
the apparatus to malfunction.
On replacement of parts
• In the events that this system is repaired, repaired
parts may be collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
On your TV’s color
• If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after
15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist,
place the speakers further away from the TV set.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This system is capable of holding a still
video image or on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still
video image or on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period of time you risk
permanent damage to your television screen.
Projection televisions are especially susceptible to
this.
On moving the system
• Before moving the system, make sure that there is no
disc inserted, and remove the AC power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains).
Notes about the Discs
On handling discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its
edge. Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
On cleaning
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
Additional Information
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or
heat sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in
a car parked in direct sunlight as the
temperature may rise considerably inside the
car.
• After playing, store the disc in its case.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
This system can only play a standard circular
disc. Using neither standard nor circular discs
(e.g., card, heart, or star shape) may cause a
malfunction.
Do not use a disc that has a commercially
available accessory attached, such as a label or
ring.
