BLUETOOTH (HW-F355 MODEL ONLY)
You can use a Bluetooth device to enjoy music with high quality stereo sound, all without wires!
What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a technology that enables Bluetooth-compliant devices to interconnect easily with each other using
a short wireless connection.
• A Bluetooth device may cause noise or malfunction, depending on usage, when:
- A part of your body is in contact with the receiving/transmitting system of the Bluetooth device or the Air
Track.
- It is subject to electrical variation from obstructions caused by a wall, corner, or office partition.
- It is exposed to electrical interference from same frequency-band devices including medical equipment,
microwave ovens, and wireless LANs.
• Pair the Air Track with the Bluetooth device while they are close together.
• The further the distance is between Air Track and Bluetooth device, the worse the quality is.
If the distance exceeds the Bluetooth operational range, the connection is lost.
• In poor reception-sensitivity areas, the Bluetooth connection may not work properly.
• The Bluetooth connection only works when the Bluetooth device is close to the set. The connection will be
automatically cut off if the Bluetooth device is out of range. Even within range, the sound quality may be
degraded by obstacles such as walls or doors.
• This wireless device may cause electric interference during its operation.

by the Bluetooth device and have it search for the Air Track again.
5. Play music on the connected device.
• You can listen to the music playing on the connected Bluetooth device over the Crystal Surround Air Track
system.
• In BT mode, Play/Repeat/Stop/Next/Prev functions are not available.
ƒ You may be required to enter a PIN code (password) when connecting the Bluetooth device to
the Air Track. If the PIN code input window appears, enter <0000>.
The Air Track supports SBC data (44.1kHz, 48kHz).
The AVRCP feature is not supported.
Connect only to a Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP (AV) function.
You cannot connect to a Bluetooth device that supports only the HF (Hands Free) function.
Only one Bluetooth device can be paired at a time.
Once you have turned off Air Track and the pairing is disconnected, the pairing will not be
restored automatically. To reconnect, you must pair the device again.
ƒ Search or connection may not be performed properly by Air Track in the following cases:
- If there is a strong electrical field around Air Track.
- If several Bluetooth devices are simultaneously paired with Air Track.
- If the Bluetooth device is turned off, not in place, or malfunctions.
- Note that such devices as microwave ovens, wireless LAN adaptors, fluorescent lights, and gas
stoves use the same frequency range as the Bluetooth device, which can cause electric
interference.

• The currently connected device will be disconnected.
ƒ In Bluetooth connection mode, the Bluetooth connection will be lost if the distance between the Air
Track and the Bluetooth device exceeds 16.25 ft. (5m).
ƒ If the Bluetooth device comes back into the effective range after disconnecting, you can restart the Air
Track to restore the pairing with the Bluetooth device.
ƒ The Air Track automatically turns off after 20 minutes in the Ready state.

SOFTWARE UPGRADE
Samsung may offer upgrades for the Crystal Surround Air Track's system
firmware in the future.
If an upgrade is offered, you can upgrade the firmware by connecting a USB
drive with the firmware upgrade stored on it to the USB port on your Air
Track.
Note that if there are multiple upgrade files, you must load them onto the
USB drive singly and use them to upgrade the firmware one at a time.
Please visit Samsung.com or contact the Samsung call centre to receive
more information about downloading upgrade files.
ƒ Insert a USB drive containing the firmware upgrade into the USB port on the main unit.
ƒ Do not disconnect the power or remove the USB drive while upgrades are being applied. The main unit will turn

Once upgrading the product software is completed, turn off the product and then press and hold () button for
a while to reset the product.
If the firmware fails to upgrade, we recommend formatting the USB device in FAT16 and trying again.
For upgrading purposes, do not format the USB drive in NTFS format because it is not a supported file system.
