Listening to music on a PC via a network (Windows 8) (Windows Media Player)
You can use a PC as a controller (operating device).
Music can be played back by using the [Play To] function, after starting Windows Media Player. Follow the instructions on the PC screen to operate.
- Connect the speaker and PC to the same network.
Connect the speaker and the PC to the same SSID of the wireless router.
The LINK indicator lights up in orange or pink when the connection is complete.
- Tap the NETWORK button.
The NETWORK indicator lights up in white, and the speaker switches to NETWORK mode.
The speaker can also be switched to NETWORK mode automatically, instead of tapping the NETWORK button, by playing back music using the [Play To] function, after starting Windows Media Player.
- Right-click on the Start screen of the PC.
In the case of a touch-panel, swipe from the bottom to the top on the Start screen, then select [All Apps] at the bottom-right of the screen.
- Select [Windows Media Player].
- Right-click or press and hold a song to be played.
- Select [Play To] from the menu.
The device list appears.
- Select [SRS-X99].
- Play back the selected song, and adjust the volume.
The selected song will be heard from the speaker.
To enjoy a more dynamic sound
Remove the speaker grille from the front of the speaker with the speaker grille detach tool (supplied).*
*Keep the removed grille on a flat surface to prevent distortion.
- Do not touch the exposed part of the speaker (speaker units) after removing the speaker grille.
Using the speaker or remote control during playback
You can adjust the volume using the VOL (volume) -/+ buttons of the speaker or the VOLUME +/- buttons of the remote control.
You can also use the MUTING button, (Play/Pause) button, or (Previous) button of the remote control.
- After SongPal is downloaded and installed to your smartphone/iPhone, you can use it as a remote control to operate devices connected to the speaker.
- The procedure explained above is for guidance only. Normally, the volume level on a computer and the speaker do not synchronize. However, depending on the version of the Windows Media Player installed on a computer or the computer's condition, the volume levels may synchronize.
- The speaker can play MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV format files (only AAC files with the extension ".m4a," ".mp4," or ".3gp" can be played). Even if the bit rate and file format are supported, the playback of all files is not guaranteed and there may be a change in the specification.
- Files with DRM (Digital Rights Management) copyright protection cannot be played on the speaker. To check if a WMA file is protected by DRM, right-click the file on the PC. If there is a [License] tab, the file is DRM-copyrighted.
- When you listen to music via a home network, it may take some time, since each DLNA-compatible device has to recognize the component currently used.
- Some content may not be playable with DLNA certified products.
