Features
The AIR-RM10 is an “S-AIR”
compatible product.
Using this unit, you can operate the
S-AIR transmitter product (called
S-AIR main unit) to select a track to be
played on the S-AIR receiver product
(called S-AIR sub unit) and check
information on the display of this
remote commander, such as a track
name, which is sent from the S-AIR
main unit.
For the S-AIR sub unit, power
management, volume adjustment and
coupling operations can be performed
using this remote commander. After
the coupling operation is established,
the S-AIR sub unit and this remote
commander are linked together.
This unit is also compatible with
“MULTI SOURCE” mode. That will
allow you to select and to listen to
multiple sources sent from the S-AIR
main unit to the S-AIR sub units.
Precautions
Notes on use of the S-AIR
product
As the S-AIR product transmits data
by radio waves, data 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 data
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 step:
Do not use 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
Should any solid object or liquid get
into the unit, and have it checked by
qualified personnel before operating it
again.
On placement
Do not place the unit in an inclined
position or in locations that are
extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty,
humid or lacking adequate
ventilation, subject to vibration,
direct sunlight or 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 in the unit during
operation is normal and is not cause
for alarm.
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.

leakage and corrosion.
Establishing the
connection with an S-AIR
main unit
Connect the unit and S-AIR main unit.
You can easily establish the connection
by setting the same S-AIR ID for this
unit and the S-AIR main unit.
1
Turn on the S-AIR main unit.
Note
Pressing
/
(power) of this unit cannot
turn on the S-AIR main unit. Use the
button on the S-AIR main unit or
infrared remote (if supplied) to turn on
the main unit.
2
Unlock and open the battery
compartment lid, and then set
the S-AIR ID selector to the

Getting started
Identifying the unit with a
specific S-AIR main unit
(Pairing operation)
It is easy to set the same S-AIR ID for
the unit and S-AIR 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, the neighboring
system may receive and react to the
command from this remote
commander. To prevent this, you can
identify the unit with a specific S-AIR
main unit by performing the pairing
operation.
Before pairing
The connection is established by the
S-AIR ID (example).

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
AIR-RM10.
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.
