Cordless via Bluetooth
Bluetooth involves a technology for wireless radio connection of devices over a short dis-
tance. Devices with Bluetooth standard are transmitting between 2.402 and 2.480 GHz in
the ISM band (Industrial, Scientific and Medical). Interferences can however be caused by
WLANs, networks, wireless telephones, or microwave ovens, for example, which operate in
the same frequency band.
This device offers you the possibility to use a Bluetooth-enabled device. The functional
radius is limited to approx. 10 metres depending on the surroundings and the unit used.
If your playing device supports the A2DP profile (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and
has a music-player function, then you can also wirelessly transfer music to the device. The
A2DP profile involves a multi-vendor Bluetooth profile. By streaming, stereo-audio signals
are wirelessly transferred between the playing device (source) and the receiving device. To
be able to operate the source by remote control, the player needs to support the AVRCP
profile (Audio Video Remote Control Profile).
Due to the different device manufacturers, models, and software versions, a full functional-
ity cannot be guaranteed.
•	 Logging on devices (Pairing)

ting released in the future.
