Precautions

On safety

• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug the system and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

• Do not climb on the Bar Speaker and subwoofer, as you may fall down and injure yourself, or system damage may result.

On power sources

• Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage is identical to your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate on the bottom of the Bar Speaker.

• If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet (mains). To disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

• One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the purpose of safety and will fit into the wall outlet (mains) only one way.

If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer.

• AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at a qualified service shop.

On heat buildup

Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction.

If you continuously use this system at high volume, the system temperature at the rear and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the system.

On placement

• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the life of the system.

• Do not place the system near heat sources or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

• Do not place anything at the rear of the

Bar Speaker and subwoofer that might block the ventilation holes and cause malfunctions.

• If the system is being used in combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, noise may result and picture quality may suffer. In such a case, place the system away from the TV, VCR, or tape deck.

• Use caution when placing the system on a surface that has been specially treated

(with wax, oil, polish, etc.), as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

• Take care to avoid any possible injury from the corners of the Bar Speaker and subwoofer.

• Keep 3 cm or more space under the Bar

Speaker when you hang it on a wall.

On operation

Before connecting other equipment, be sure to turn off and unplug the system.

If you encounter color irregularity on a nearby TV screen

Color irregularities may be observed on certain types of TV.

• If color irregularity is observed...

Turn off the TV, then turn it on again after

15 to 30 minutes.

• If color irregularity is observed again...

Place the system further away from the

TV.

On BLUETOOTH communication

• BLUETOOTH devices should be used within approximately 10 meters

(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 occur

• 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 away from the wireless LAN device.

– Turn off the power to the wireless

LAN device when using your

BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters.

– Install 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 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.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
