Features The AIR-SA15R is an S-AIR compatible product. It is also called the S-AIR sub unit. Connecting this unit with an S-AIR main unit using S-AIR technology, you can use each unit in a remote location. For example, you can install this unit in the bedroom, and then install an S-AIR main unit in the living room. You can then listen to the music from the S-AIR main unit located in the living room by controlling this unit.

Precautions

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 S- AIR main unit there.

On safety Completely disconnect the power cord 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 power cord can be changed only by a qualified service facility.

On placement 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.

On heat buildup 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.

On the speaker system 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.

Cleaning the cabinet Clean the cabinet with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine, or alcohol.

S-AIR (Sony Audio Interactive Radio frequency) 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 high- quality 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/EZW-RT10A. 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.

Wireless transceiver Insert the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10 or EZW-RT10A) securely into the EZW-RT10 slot on the rear panel of the unit. Check the orientation of the mark when inserting the supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10 or EZW- RT10A). Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit.

Notes Make sure to turn off the unit when inserting or removing the

supplied wireless transceiver (EZW-RT10 or EZW-RT10A). Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit. Do not touch the terminals of the supplied wireless transceiver

(EZW-RT10 or EZW-RT10A). Do not insert any device other than the supplied wireless

transceiver (EZW-RT10 or EZW-RT10A) into the EZW-RT10 slot.

S-AIR ID selector Set the same S-AIR ID for this unit and the S-AIR main unit to be connected. For details on setting the S-AIR ID, see Establishing the connection with an S-AIR main unit.
