AirPlay Direct mode to still be able to enjoy your music.
HINT
If the Airstream A100 isn’t one of the listed networks,
press the “home” button and try again. It sometimes
takes a few seconds for the network to become
visible.
Activating this mode creates a wireless network solely between
the A100 and the iOS-device. To connect using AirPlay Direct,
follow the steps below:
5. With the album cover up, swipe up to reveal the Control Centre.
You should see the AirPlay icon.
1. Turn the A100 on from standby.
2. Press the AirPlay Direct button on the rear of the A100 (Button

6. Press this and select A100 from the list. The AirPlay logo
will now be illuminated. This means that your device will be
playing via AirPlay.
3. The LED on the front of the unit will momentarily flash purple
and then turn solid purple.
4. On the iOS-device, go to “Settings” and then “Wireless”. Within the
available wireless networks, there should be “Airstream A100...”.
Select “Airstream A100...” from the list then press the home button.
HINTS
If a telephone call is received while in AirPlay Direct
mode, music will pause and restart when the call is
ended.
While in AirPlay Direct mode, cellular data will not
function. So, iMessage, emails and mobile internet
will not function simultaneously.

More than one device can be connected in AirPlay
Direct mode, but only one device can play music in
AirPlay Direct mode.
Freeing Your Music
Connecting to a WiFi Network.
1. Turn the A100 on from standby mode. The LED on the front
will flash blue, firstly in pattern 2 then pattern 1 sequence.
There are a couple of different ways you can register the A100
onto the WiFi network. One method connects the phone directly to
the A100 using the Apple supplied USB lead, while the second uses
the A100’s web portal via a PC, Mac or iOS-device.
What is required?
2. When it changes to Pattern 1 (not connected to a wireless
network), open the cover over the USB socket on the A100 and
connect the USB lead to the A100 and your iOS-device.
To connect the A100 to a WiFi network you will need to have the
following:
• A Wireless router.
• For Option 1, either an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad and the
Apple supplied USB lead.
• For option 2, either a PC, Mac, iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad
connected wirelessly to the network. The PC/ Mac must be
connected wirelessly.
• Airstream A100
Option 1.
This is the easiest of the two processes. It uses the wireless
network security information stored on the iOS-device to connect
to and gain access to the network. All you need is a compatible
iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad running iOS5 or above.
A list of compatible devices for this method of connection can be

Ready Mode
It is possible to see what version of firmware and software the
A100 is running. This may be needed when contacting Monitor
Audio.
What is Ready Mode?
Ready Mode is another form of standby. However, when in Ready
Mode, the A100 will also automatically awake if you try to play
something via USB, AirPlay or AirPlay Direct.
1. With the A100 powered up and out of standby mode, connect
your iOS-device to the USB port of the A100 using the Apple
supplied lead.
2. On the device, go to Settings, then General and then About.
3. In the About section scroll down the screen to you see
Airstream A100.
4. Select Airstream A100 and you will see a screen showing the
Manufacturer, Model, firmware version and hardware version.
How to Enter Ready Mode
1. With the A100 turned on and out of standby mode (LED not
flashing), press and hold the standby button for about 3
seconds.
2. The LED will start to flash orange indicating it is entering
Ready Mode. When it stops flashing and is illuminated yellow,
the A100 is now in Ready Mode.
It is now possible to automatically wake the A100 by either
connecting a device via the USB or streaming to it via AirPlay.
The A100 cannot be put into Ready Mode using the remote.
HINT
If the A100 is placed into Ready Mode while an iOSdevice is connected via USB, it will continue to charge.

Trouble Shooting
No AirPlay Icon on my iTunes Host Device
• Make sure the A100 is connected to the same WiFi network as
the host device
• It can sometimes take 30 seconds or so for the A100 to talk to
the rest of the network to let it know it is on and ready. Try
leaving iTunes for a bit to see if it appears.
If experiencing problems with the Airstream A100, there are some
quick and easy checks, which may help to solve the problem.
Unable to Connect to the Wireless Network
• Check if your WiFi router is WiFi 802.11b/g certified. The A100
is not compatible with N Class routers. If your WiFi router is
WiFi 802.11n, please ensure that it is in 802.11b/g mode. The
A100 is not able to talk to routers that are 802.11n only.
• Ensure you router is DHCP enabled.
• Keep away from potential sources of interference which may
affect WiFi signal, such as microwave ovens.
• If you fail to use your PC for WiFi network setup, check whether
your PC is using a WiFi network. You cannot use Ethernet
connection for AirPlay network setup.
• Make sure that the SSID name of the router consists of
alphanumeric characters, with no space or special characters
like %/#/* inserted. It must also not be hidden.
• Check that there are enough spare IP addresses available
on your router. Some limit the number of devices that are
allowed on the network
AirPlay Connection Failed with Mac or PC
• Temporarily disable the firewall and security software to
see whether it blocks the ports that AirPlay uses to stream
content. Refer to the help documentation for your router/
firewall/ network security to unblock the ports used by
AirPlay.
• When you use iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad/Mac/PC for AirPlay, if
the music play breaks or stops, try to restart your iPod Touch/
iPhone/iPad, iTunes or A100.
• Video streaming or FTP downloads may overload your router
and therefore may cause interruptions during AirPlay music
play. Try to reduce the load of your router.
If still experiencing difficulties after making the suggested checks,
please call the help desk for further assistance. The help desk is
open from 9.00am to 5.00pm (GMT), Monday to Friday (excluding Bank
Holidays) and can be contacted on +44(0) 1268 798567.
Alternatively contact the store you purchased the A100 from.
No Sound
• Check the volume, source and play/ pause settings.
• Check that the mains power lead is connected on both the
A100 and the mains power wall socket is switched on.

Model Airstream A100
The A100 is Nonresponsive
• Check that the mains power lead is connected on both the
A100 and the mains power wall socket is switched on.
• Remove the power from the A100, wait for the standby LED to
go out and then reconnect the power.
• Check that it is connected to the same wireless network as
your device.
• Check you are running the latest version of firmware. Refer
to page 15.

Occasional Breaking up of AirPlay Music Playback
Town ..................................................................................................
• Move the A100 closer to your WiFi router.
• Avoid using WiFi channel which is overlapped by the nearby
WiFi network.
• Check if your network speed is fast enough (in cases
where multiple devices share the same router, the AirPlay
performance may be affected). Turn off the other devices
connected to your router.
• Enable the Quality of Service (QoS) option (if available on the
WiFi router).
• Turn off other WiFi routers or range extenders to try to
diagnose a possible faulty one.
