Registering (pairing) an audio device and establishing a Bluetooth connection
To establish a wireless connection between Bluetooth audio devices for the first time, you need to have the devices registered with each other. This device registration process is called [pairing].
- Place the Bluetooth audio device with which you want to establish a Bluetooth connection in pairing mode.
Be sure to place the linear PCM recorder within 1 m (3.3 feet) from the Bluetooth audio device.
- While recording is on standby, select [ Bluetooth] - [Audio Device] from the HOME menu.
The menu screen for audio devices is displayed on the display window.
- Select [Add Device (Pairing)].
When the Bluetooth function of the linear PCM recorder is turned off, [Turn Bluetooth On?] appears on the display window. Select [Yes], and then press.
When the linear PCM recorder is connected with another Bluetooth audio device, [Disconnect Connected Audio Device. Continue?] appears on the display window. Select [Yes].
- Pressto start searching for Bluetooth audio devices.
The search for Bluetooth audio devices that are available for device registration starts and the list of the found devices appears on the display window.
- Select the Bluetooth device that you want to register (pair) with the linear PCM recorder.
When the device is registered (paired), a Bluetooth connection is automatically established and [Connection Complete] appears on the display window.
- Start playback on the linear PCM recorder.
Now, you can listen to audio from the Bluetooth audio device.
To switch the audio output destination between the Bluetooth headphones and the headphones connected to the linear PCM recorder
While a Bluetooth connection is established, no audio is output to the headphones connected to the(headphones) jack on the linear PCM recorder.
To use the connected headphones for listening, disconnect the Bluetooth connection.
The device registration (pairing) information is cleared in the following cases. You need to register (pair) the device with your linear PCM recorder once again.
The settings on either or both devices are reset to the default settings, for example, due to initialization.
The device registration (pairing) information is deleted, for example, during the course of a repair service.
If the device registration (pairing) is deleted from the linear PCM but the Bluetooth audio device still has the device registration (pairing) information of the linear PCM recorder, delete the information and make device registration (pairing) once again.
While the Bluetooth function is turned on, the battery wears quickly to a large extent.
Depending on the Bluetooth audio device connected with your linear PCM recorder, the communication environment, or the ambient conditions, you may hear noises or audio dropouts.
Your linear PCM recorder supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) as the Bluetooth profile. To establish a Bluetooth connection with a Bluetooth device from the linear PCM recorder, the Bluetooth device must support A2DP. On a Bluetooth audio device that supports AVRCP, such as Bluetooth headphones, you can perform basic operations of the linear PCM recorder.
If passkey(*) entry is prompted on the display window of your linear PCM recorder in the course of device registration (pairing), find out the passkey for the Bluetooth audio device and enter the passkey.
* The passkey may also be called [passcode], [PIN code], [PIN number], or [password]. The passkey for the linear PCM recorder is .
To find out the passkey for the Bluetooth audio device, refer to the operation instructions supplied with the device.
You can register (pair) a single Bluetooth audio device with your linear PCM recorder at a time. To register (pair) multiple devices, perform the above procedure from step 1 for each device.
If the Auto Power Off function is active on your linear PCM recorder, the linear PCM recorder will turn off in the specified time period even while it is connected with a device via a Bluetooth connection. To avoid this, change the time period for the Auto Power Off function to suit your needs.
Bluetooth wireless technology allows connection at distance of up to about 10 meters (33 feet). However, the effective range may vary depending on obstructions (people, metals, wall, etc.) or signal status.
If the same Bluetooth audio device name is displayed multiple times, check the device that you want to register (pair) for its Device Address. To find out the Device Address for the Bluetooth audio device, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the device.
If the Bluetooth audio device supports the NFC function, you can register (pair) the Bluetooth audio device with the linear PCM recorder and establish a Bluetooth connection between the devices with the one-touch operation.
You can also establish/disconnect the Bluetooth connection by selecting [ Bluetooth] - [Bluetooth ON/OFF] from the HOME menu.
