• 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:
– Use this system at least 10 meters
(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN
device.
– Turn off the power to the wireless
LAN device when using your
BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters
(33 feet).
– Install this system and BLUETOOTH
device as close to each other as
possible.

gas stations, and any place where
flammable gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
• This system supports security
functions that comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification to ensure
secure connection 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.
