How to Link Sony Wireless Speakers
An S-AIR allows you to place surround speakers without running wires around the room. (home cinema components image by Nikolay Okhitin from

Sony's wireless speaker technology goes by the name "S-AIR," which stands for "Sony Audio Interactive Radio." It was developed to ensure that the music and sounds played over Sony's wireless speakers retain all the subtle touches included in the recording, by using a compression-free wireless transmission method. This signal uses the same 2.4 GHz band of frequencies employed by wireless networks and Bluetooth devices, so you should keep network routers well clear of the main unit. S-AIR compatible speakers need to be paired with the main stereo unit before use.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • S-AIR wireless transceiver
  • S-AIR-compatible main unit

  1. 1

    Insert the wireless transceiver that came with your wireless speaker set into the transceiver slot on the back of the main unit. The transceiver is a black, plastic block slightly larger than a deck of cards. Make sure the "triangle" symbol on the top of the transceiver matches up with the symbol on the main unit.

  2. 2

    Select an "S-AIR" channel using the selector on the back of the main unit labelled "S-AIR ID." The options are A, B and C.

  3. 3

    Set the "S-AIR ID" selector on the back of the speakers to the same channel as the main unit.

  4. 4

    Connect the main unit's power cable to the socket and turn it on.

  5. 5

    Press the "Pairing" button next to the "S-AIR ID" selector on the back of the main unit. You may need to use a pin or toothpick to press the button, as it is recessed. Your Sony wireless speakers are now connected to the main unit.
