(CD) standard. Recently, various music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies are marketed by some record companies. Please be aware that among those discs, there are some that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable by this product.

This system is designed to be used for the following purposes:

• Playing back music sources on discs or USB devices

• Transferring music to USB devices

• Listening to radio stations

• Playing back music sources on

BLUETOOTH devices

• Enjoying social gatherings with the “Party Chain” function

About this manual

• This manual mainly explains operations using the remote control, but the same operations can also be performed using the buttons on the unit having the same or similar names.

USB Device

Before using the USB device

For compatible USB devices, see

“Information about compatible devices” (page 33).

When using Apple devices with this system, connect them via a

BLUETOOTH connection (page 22).

Using Apple devices via a USB connection is not supported.

To use the system as a battery charger

You can use the system as a battery charger for USB devices that have a rechargeable function.

Connect the USB device to the

(USB) port.

The charging begins when the USB device is connected to the (USB) port. For details, refer to the operating instructions of your USB device.

Notes

• When USB cable connection is necessary, use the USB cable supplied with the USB device. See the operating instructions supplied with the USB device for details on the operation method.

• It may take a long time before “SEARCH” appears on the display depending on the type of USB device connected.

• Do not connect the system and the USB device through a USB hub.

• When the USB device is connected, the system reads all the files on the USB device. If there are many folders or files on the USB device, it may take a long time to finish reading the USB device.

• With some connected USB devices, there may be a delay before an operation is performed by this system.

• Compatibility with all encoding/writing software cannot be guaranteed. If audio files on the USB device were originally encoded with incompatible software, those files may produce noise or interrupted audio, or may not play at all.

• This system does not necessarily support all the functions provided in a connected

USB device.

• Do not remove the USB device during transfer or erase operations. Doing so may corrupt the data on the USB device or damage the USB device itself.

Precautions

Discs that this system CAN play

• Audio CD

• CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files)

Discs that this system CANNOT play

• CD-ROM

• CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in music CD format, conforming to ISO9660

Level 1/Level 2

• CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession that have not ended by “closing the session”

• CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality,

CD-R/CD-RW that have scratches or are dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW recorded with an incompatible recording device

• CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly

• Discs containing files other than MPEG1

Audio Layer-3 (MP3) files

• Discs of non-standard shape (for example, heart, square, star)

• Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or sticker attached to them

• Rental or used discs with attached seals where the glue extends beyond the seal

• Discs that have labels printed using ink that feels tacky when touched

Notes on discs

• Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning cloth from the center outward to the edge.

• Do not clean discs with solvents, such as benzine, thinner, or commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.

• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

On safety

• Completely disconnect the AC power cord

(mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not going to be used for an extended period of time. When unplugging the unit, always grip the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

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

• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

MHC-V11.4-582-493-72(1)

On placement

• Do not place the system in an inclined position or in locations that are extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking adequate ventilation, or subject to vibration, direct sunlight or a bright light.

• Be careful when placing the system on surfaces that have been specially treated

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

• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lens inside the system, and cause the system to malfunction. In this situation, remove the disc, and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

On heat buildup

• Heat buildup on the system during operation is normal and is not a cause for alarm.

• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used continuously at a high volume because the cabinet may have become hot.

• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.

On the speaker system

The built-in speaker system is not magnetically shielded, and the picture on nearby TV sets may become magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.

If there is no improvement, move the system far away from the TV.

Cleaning the cabinet

Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution.

Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine, or alcohol.

On BLUETOOTH Communication

• BLUETOOTH devices should be used within approximately 10 meters (33 feet)

(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 are generated

• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN

(IEEE 802.11b/g) equipment 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 equipment.

— Turn off the power to the wireless

LAN equipment when using your

BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters

(33 feet).

— Use 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 gases may be present

— Near automatic doors or fire alarms

• This system supports security functions that comply with BLUETOOTH specifications to ensure secure connections 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.

GB

MHC-V11.4-582-493-72(1)

• 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.
