Pairing this system with a BLUETOOTH device

Pairing is an operation where

BLUETOOTH devices register with each other beforehand. Once a pairing operation is performed, it does not need to be performed again.

If your device is an NFC-compatible smartphone, the manual pairing procedure is not necessary. (See

“One Touch BLUETOOTH Connection by NFC” (page 43).)

1

Place the BLUETOOTH device within 1 meter from the unit.

2

Touch BLUETOOTH on the unit to select the BLUETOOTH function.

“BT AUDIO” appears on the display.

Hint

• When there is no pairing information on the system (for example, when you use the BLUETOOTH function for the first time after purchase),

“PAIRING” flashes on the display and the system enters the pairing mode.

Proceed to step 4.

If the system is connected to a BLUETOOTH device, touch

BLUETOOTH on the unit to disconnect the BLUETOOTH device.

3

Touch and hold PAIRING on the unit for 2 seconds or more.

“PAIRING” flashes on the display.

4

Perform the pairing procedure on the BLUETOOTH device.

For details, refer to the operating instructions of your BLUETOOTH device.

5

Select “MHC-V77DW” on the display of the BLUETOOTH device.

Perform this step within 5 minutes, otherwise pairing will be canceled.

In this case, repeat from step 3.

Note

If passkey is required on the

BLUETOOTH device, enter “0000”.

“Passkey” may be called “Passcode”,

“PIN code”, “PIN number”, or

“Password”.

6

Establish connection with the

BLUETOOTH device.

When pairing is completed and the

BLUETOOTH connection is established, BLUETOOTH device name appears on the display.

Depending on the BLUETOOTH device, connection may start automatically after pairing is completed.

You can check the BLUETOOTH device address by pressing DISPLAY repeatedly.

Note

You can pair up to 9 BLUETOOTH devices. If the 10th BLUETOOTH device is paired, the oldest paired device will

• be deleted.

If you want to pair with another

BLUETOOTH device, repeat steps 1 to 6.

To cancel the pairing operation

Touch and hold PAIRING on the unit for 2 seconds or more until “BT

AUDIO” appears on the display.

Listening to music on a

BLUETOOTH device

You can operate a BLUETOOTH device by connecting the system and the BLUETOOTH device using

AVRCP.

Check the following before playing music:

—The BLUETOOTH function of the

BLUETOOTH device is turned on.

—Pairing has been completed

(page 41).

Once the system and the

BLUETOOTH device are connected, you can control playback by pressing

, , , / and

/.

1

Touch BLUETOOTH on the unit to select the BLUETOOTH function.

“BT AUDIO” appears on the display.

2

Perform a BLUETOOTH connection with the BLUETOOTH device.

Touch BLUETOOTH on the unit to connect to the last connected

BLUETOOTH device.

Perform the BLUETOOTH connection from the BLUETOOTH device if the device is not connected.

Once the connection is established, the BLUETOOTH device name appears on the display.

3

Touch

to start playback.

Depending on the BLUETOOTH device,

— you may need to touch

 twice.

— you may need to start playing an audio source on the BLUETOOTH device.

4

Adjust the volume.

Adjust the volume of the

BLUETOOTH device first. If the volume level is still too low, adjust the volume level on the system.

Note

• When the system is not connected to any BLUETOOTH device, the system will connect to the last connected

BLUETOOTH device automatically when you touch BLUETOOTH on the unit or

.

• •

If you try to connect another

BLUETOOTH device to the system, the current connected BLUETOOTH device will be disconnected.

To use the Gesture Control during playback

See page 50.

To terminate the BLUETOOTH connection

Touch BLUETOOTH on the unit. “BT

AUDIO” appears on the display.

Depending on the BLUETOOTH device, the BLUETOOTH connection may be terminated automatically when you stop playback.

One Touch BLUETOOTH

Connection by NFC

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology enabling shortrange wireless communication between various devices, such as smartphones and IC tags.

When you touch the system with an

NFC-compatible smartphone, the system automatically:

—turns on in the BLUETOOTH function.

—completes the pairing and

BLUETOOTH connection.

Compatible smartphones

Smartphones with a built-in NFC function (OS: Android 2.3.3 or later, excluding Android 3.x)

Note

The system can only recognizes and connects to one NFC-compatible smartphone at a time. If you try to connect another NFC-compatible smartphone to the system, the currently connected NFC-compatible smartphone will be disconnected.

• Depending on your NFC-compatible smartphone, you may need to perform the following steps on your NFCcompatible smartphone in advance.

— Turn on the NFC function. For details, refer to the operating instructions of the NFC-compatible smartphone.

— If your NFC-compatible smartphone has an OS version that is older than

Android 4.1.x, download and start the “NFC Easy Connect” application.

“NFC Easy Connect” is a free application for Android smartphones that can be obtained from Google

Play. (The application may not be available in some countries/regions.)

1

Touch the smartphone to the

N-Mark on the unit until the smartphone vibrates.

Complete the connection by following the instructions displayed on the smartphone.

When the BLUETOOTH connection is established, the BLUETOOTH device name appears on the display.

2

Start playback of an audio source on the smartphone.

For details, refer to the operating instructions of your BLUETOOTH device.

Hint

If pairing and the BLUETOOTH connection fail, do the following.

— Remove the case from the smartphone if using a commercially available smartphone case.

— Touch the smartphone to the N-Mark on the unit again.

— Relaunch the “NFC Easy Connect” application.

To terminate the BLUETOOTH connection

Touch the smartphone to the

N-Mark on the unit again.

Setting the BLUETOOTH audio codecs

You can enable AAC, LDAC or SBC codec from BLUETOOTH device.

AAC/LDAC can be selected only when the BLUETOOTH device supports AAC/LDAC.

1

Press OPTIONS.

2

Press / repeatedly to select

“BT CODEC”, then press .

3

Press / repeatedly to select the setting, then press .

• “AUTO”: Enable reception in AAC or LDAC codec format depending on the BLUETOOTH device’s capabilities.

• “SBC”: Receive in SBC codec format.

To exit the options menu, press

OPTIONS.

Note

You can enjoy high quality sound if AAC or LDAC is selected. If you cannot listen

• to AAC or LDAC sound from your device or the sound is interrupted, select “SBC”.

If you change this setting while the system is connected to a BLUETOOTH device, the BLUETOOTH device will be disconnected. To connect to the

BLUETOOTH device, perform the

BLUETOOTH connection again.

Hint

LDAC is an audio coding technology developed by Sony that enables the transmission of High-Resolution (Hi-Res)

Audio content, even over a BLUETOOTH connection. Unlike other BLUETOOTH compatible coding technologies such as SBC, it operates without any down-conversion of the Hi-Res Audio content*

1

, and allows approximately three times more data*

2

than those other technologies to be transmitted over a BLUETOOTH wireless network with unprecedented sound quality, by means of efficient coding and optimized packetization.
