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.

x 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.

x 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 devices which do not support

TKIP/AES to be connected.

x 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.

x 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.

• Do not place metal objects in front of the front panel.

They may limit reception of radio waves.

• Do not place the system in a place where medical equipment is in use. It may cause a malfunction of medical equipment.

• If you use a pacemaker or other medical device, consult your physician or the manufacturer of your medical device before using the wireless LAN function.

On operation

• 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 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.

• 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.

On cleaning

• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.

Wipe the disc from the center out.

• 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.
