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 Sound Bar or the
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 rear of the Sound Bar.
 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 the 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 a large
volume, the system temperature of the
back and bottom rises considerably. To
avoid burning yourself, do not touch the
system.
 Place
the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
buildup and prolong the life of the
system.
 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
Sound Bar that might block the
ventilation holes and cause
malfunctions.
 If the system is being used in
combination with a TV, VCR, or tape
deck, noise may result, and picture
quality may suffer. In this case, place
the system away from the TV, VCR, or
tape deck.
 Use caution when placing the system
on surfaces that have been specially
treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as
staining or discoloration of the surface
may result.
 Take care to avoid any possible injury
on the corners of the Sound Bar or the
subwoofer.
On operation
Before connecting other equipment, 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.

BLUETOOTH wireless
technology
Supported BLUETOOTH version
and profiles
Profile refers to a standard set of
capabilities for various BLUETOOTH
product capabilities. See
“Specifications” (page 31) on the
BLUETOOTH version and profiles
supported by this system.
Notes
 For
you to use the BLUETOOTH
function, the BLUETOOTH device to be
connected must support the same
profile as this system. Even if the device
supports the same profile, the functions
may differ because of the specifications
of the BLUETOOTH device.
 The audio playback on this system may
be delayed from that on the
BLUETOOTH device because of the
characteristics of the BLUETOOTH
wireless technology.
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.
continued
5GB
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

Effects of other devices
BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/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 mobile phone or
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.
Effects on 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, BLUETOOTH mobile
phone 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

Notes
 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.

Before connecting the AC power cord (mains lead) to a wall outlet (mains),
connect all other equipment and a TV to the system. No cable connection is
required between the Sound Bar and the subwoofer because they can be
connected wirelessly.
Getting Started
Connecting a TV
If you connect the system to a TV compatible with the Audio Return Channel
(ARC) technology via an HDMI input jack with “ARC” indicated, you do not need
to connect a digital optical cable.
If the digital optical cable has a cap, remove it before connecting the cable.

Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology. Even if you connect an HDMI cable to the
jack, if the HDMI input jack is not compatible with the Audio Return Channel (ARC)
technology, you cannot use the Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology.
 The Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology is available only when the Control for
HDMI function is set to on. If the Control for HDMI function is set to off, use a digital
optical cable.
 Make sure that you connect cables by matching the shape of the plug to that of the
jack.

(page 16)
Getting Started
Notes
 Take
following precautions when installing the Sound Bar and the subwoofer.
 Do not block the ventilation holes on the rear panel.
 Do not place the Sound Bar and the subwoofer in a metal cabinet.
 Do not place an object such as an aquarium between the Sound Bar and the
subwoofer.
 Place the subwoofer close to the Sound Bar in a same room.
 When the Sound Bar is placed in front of a TV, the TV may not be controlled with the
remote control of the TV. In that case, place the Sound Bar away from the TV. If the
remote control of the TV still cannot control the TV, set “IR REP” of the AMP menu to
“ON” (page 26).
 Make sure that the remote control of the TV cannot control the TV, then set “IR REP”
to “ON.” If it is set to “ON” when the remote control can control the TV, appropriate
operation may not be obtained, because of the interference between the direct
command from the remote control and the command via the Sound Bar.

 Use screws that are suitable for the wall
material and strength. As a plaster
board wall is especially fragile, attach
the screws securely to a wall beam.
Install the Sound Bar on a vertical and
flat reinforced area of the wall.
 Be sure to subcontract the installation
to Sony dealers or licensed contractors
and pay special attention to safety
during the installation.
