for transmitting over a
BLUETOOTH wireless network with
unprecedented sound quality using
efficient coding and optimized data
bundling.

Precautions
Discs that this system CAN play
•• Audio CD
•• CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files)
Discs that this system CANNOT play
•• CD-ROM
•• CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in
music CD format, conforming to ISO9660
Level 1/Level 2
•• CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession
that have not ended by “closing the
session”
•• CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality,
CD-R/CD‑RW that have scratches or are
dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW recorded with an
incompatible recording device
•• CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly
•• Discs containing files other than MPEG1
Audio Layer-3 (MP3) files
•• Discs of non-standard shape (for example,
heart, square, star)
•• Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or
sticker attached to them
•• Rental or used discs with attached seals
where the glue extends beyond the seal
•• Discs that have labels printed using ink
that feels tacky when touched
Notes on discs
•• Before playing, wipe the disc with a
cleaning cloth from the center outward to
the edge.
•• Do not clean discs with solvents, such as
benzine, thinner, or commercially available
cleaners or anti-static spray intended for
vinyl LPs.
•• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight
or heat sources such as hot air ducts,
nor leave them in a car parked in direct
sunlight.
On safety
•• Completely disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains) if
it is not going to be used for an extended
period of time. When unplugging the unit,
always grip the plug. Never pull the cord
itself.
•• Should any solid object or liquid get into
the system, unplug the system, and have
it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it again.
•• AC power cord must be changed only at
the qualified service shop.
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 are generated
•• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/g) equipment 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
equipment.
—— Turn off the power to the wireless
LAN equipment when using your
BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters
(33 feet).
—— Use 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 gases may be present
—— Near automatic doors or fire alarms
•• This system supports security
functions that comply with BLUETOOTH
specifications to ensure secure
connections 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.
On heat buildup
•• Heat buildup on the system during
operation is normal and is not a cause for
alarm.
•• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been
used continuously at a high volume
because the cabinet may have become
hot.
•• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
The built-in speaker system is not
magnetically shielded, and the picture on
nearby TV sets may become magnetically
distorted. In this situation, turn off the TV,
wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.
If there is no improvement, move the
system far away from the TV.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system 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 thinner,
benzine, or alcohol.
Additional Information
On placement
•• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are extremely
hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking
adequate ventilation, or subject to
vibration, direct sunlight or a bright light.
•• Be careful when placing the system on
surfaces that have been specially treated
(for example, wax, oil, polish) as staining
or discoloration of the surface may result.
•• 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 lens inside the system, and
cause the system to malfunction. In this
situation, remove the disc, and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until
the moisture evaporates.
39GB
•• 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.
