Notice for the customers in Canada
For the wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10) This device complies with RSS-Gen of IC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
Notes on use of the S-AIR product
As the S-AIR product transmits sound by radio waves, sound may skip when radio waves are obstructed. This is a characteristic of radio waves and is not a malfunction. As the S-AIR product transmits sound by radio waves, equipment that generates electromagnetic energy, such as a microwave oven, may interfere with sound transmission. As the S-AIR product uses the radio waves that share the same frequency as other wireless systems, such as wireless LAN or Bluetooth devices, interference or poor transmission may result. In this case, take the following steps: Do not install the S-AIR product near other wireless systems. Do not use the S-AIR product and the other wireless systems at the same time. The transmission distance differs depending on the usage environment. Find a location where transmission between the unit and the S-AIR main unit is most effective, and install the unit and the SAIR main unit there.
Preparing the unit
Connect the unit and S-AIR main unit to listen to sound from the S-AIR main unit.

Completely disconnect the power cord (mains lead) from the wall socket (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 unit, unplug the unit, and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it again. The AC power cord can be changed only by a qualified service facility.
1 Insert the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10)
securely into the EZW-RT10 slot on the rear of the unit. Check the orientation of the mark when inserting the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10). Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit. the S-AIR main unit to be connected. For details on setting the S-AIR ID of the S-AIR main unit, refer to the Operating Instructions supplied with the S-AIR main unit.
4 Press the PAIRING button on the rear of the unit
2 Set the S-AIR ID of the unit to the same S-AIR ID as
using a pointed object. When pairing is performed, the S-AIR indicator flashes and the display changes as follows: "PAIRING" "COMPLETE" To cancel pairing, change the S-AIR IDs of the unit and the S-AIR main unit to different S-AIR IDs. To stop the pairing operation midway, press the PAIRING button again.
Do not place the unit 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 unit on surfaces that have been specially treated (for example, with wax, oil, polish) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.
3 Connect the power cord to a wall socket.
If the plug does not fit the wall socket, detach the supplied plug adaptor (only for models equipped with an adaptor).
The following FCC statement applies only to the version of this model manufactured for sale in the U.S.A. Other versions may not comply with FCC technical regulations. NOTE:
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
On heat buildup
4 Press to turn on the unit. 5 Operate the S-AIR main unit to turn on the S-AIR
ake sure to turn off the unit when inserting or removing the M supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10). Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit. Do not touch the terminals of the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10). Do not insert any device other than the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10) into the EZW-RT10 slot.
Heat buildup on the unit during operation is normal and is not 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.

Notice for the customers in the U.S.A.
This 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 about 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on. If there is no improvement, move the unit far away from the TV.
If you cannot connect to the S-AIR main unit
The following indications are located on the bottom exterior.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this unit with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine, or alcohol.
It is easy to set the same S-AIR ID for the unit and SAIR main unit to establish the connection. However, if a neighbor has an S-AIR main unit with the same S-AIR ID as your S-AIR main unit, you may be able to hear the audio transmitted from your neighbor's S-AIR main unit on your system. To prevent this, you can identify the unit with a specific S-AIR main unit by performing the pairing operation.
When you perform pairing
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of DVD media, Digital Broadcasting, and other high-quality media. To ensure that the subtle nuances of these highquality media are transmitted with no deterioration, Sony has developed a technology called "S-AIR" for the radio transmission of digital audio signals with no compression, and has incorporated this technology into the EZW-RT10. This technology transfers digital audio signals with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical band), such as wireless LANs and Bluetooth applications.
Before pairing, the connection is established by the SAIR ID (example).
