Features

The Sony SRS-Z500/ Z500PC is a compact-size speaker system with a built-in power amplifier. This system can be connected to a Discman, WALKMAN* headphone stereo, MD station, etc.

  • Newly developed Σ-type magnetic circuit reproduces powerful bass that you cannot imagine from its appearance.
  • Power output of 3 W + 3 W
  • MEGA BASS, IBB (Intelligent Bass Boost) circuit enables you to obtain powerful bass regardless of the sound volume.

* WALKMAN is a registered trademark of Sony Corporation.

Precautions

  • Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.
Where purchased Operating voltage
Canada 120 V AC, 60 Hz
European countries 230 V AC, 50 Hz
Other countries
  • 110 – 120 V AC, 50/ 60Hz
  • 220 – 230 V AC, 50 Hz
  • Use only the supplied AC power adaptor. Do not use any other AC power adaptor.
  • After operating the system with the AC power adaptor, disconnect the AC power adaptor from the wall outlet if the system is not to be used for an extended period of time. The POWER switch on the left speaker does not turn the AC power adaptor off.
  • Do not open the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
  • Do not leave the system in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, moisture, rain or mechanical shock.
  • Should any solid object or liquid fall into either speaker, disconnect the AC power adaptor and have the speaker checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.
  • Do not use alcohol, benzine, or thinner to clean the cabinet.
  • Although this system is magnetically shielded, do not leave recorded tapes, watches, personal credit cards or floppy disks using magnetic coding in front of the system for an extended period of time.
  • The nameplate indicating operating voltage, power consumption, etc., is located on the side of the plug of the AC power adaptor.
  • Install the system on a flat, level surface to prevent it from falling over or droping. Do not place valuables near it.

If the TV picture or monitor display is magnetically distorted
Although this system is magnetically shielded, there may be cases that the picture on some TV sets/ personal computer sets may become magnetically distorted. In such a case, turn off the power of the TV set/ personal computer set once, and after 15 to 30 minutes turn it on again. For the personal computer set, take the appropriate measures such as data storage before turning it off. When there seems to be no improvement, locate the system further away from the TV set/ personal computer set. Furthermore, be sure not to place objects in which magnets are attached or used near the TV set/ personal computer set, such as audio racks, TV stands, toys etc. These may cause magnetic distortion to the picture due to their interaction with the system.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your system that are not covered in this manual, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
