Yes. Standby mode is for power saving purposes and does not affect your bass and treble settings. However, when the power is turned off completely, these levels will automatically default to factory settings.

If you select Bluetooth™ as your input method and do not see a flashing white light on the front of your speaker, it means they are currently connected to a device. To enter pairing mode, ensure that all previous Bluetooth™ connections are disabled by pressing the Bluetooth™ reset button on your remote. If your remote is not available, simply reset the speakers by turning them off and on using the power switch on the back panel.

  1. Make sure the power cable is connected to the speaker and power outlet.
  2. Ensure that the power outlet is providing power.
  3. Verify that the power switch on the rear of the speaker is in the “On” position.
  1. Ensure there is a clear line of sight from the remote to the speakers. Aim the remote at the speakers.
  2. Check battery compartment of remote to make sure the batteries are installed and aligned correctly.
  3. Replace batteries.
  1. Set the volume of the source to its highest level. Low source volume can negatively affect dynamic range.
  2. Ensure that the rear of the speaker is spaced away from the wall by at least 8 inches, allowing the rear port function to be left unimpeded.
  3. Set the bass and treble levels to the default setting by pressing the EQ reset buttons on the remote.
  4. Test a different song or source to isolate the issue.
  1. If using the optical input, set the source’s output to stereo – not surround, Dobly, DTS, or 5.1 – and set the sample rate to 96Khz or lower.
  2. Verify if the noise is coming from the source by removing all sourced from the speakers.
  3. Make sure it is not a power issue by trying a power outlet that is on a different circuit.
  4. Check that the audio cable connected to and from the source is firmly seated. Try a different cable or source to isolate the issue.
By default, SYD applies your EQ (bass & treble) settings to all inputs. This can cause difference between the inputs as the EQ is applied to the different sources. If you prefer to set individual EQ settings for each input, you can activate Bass Treble Memory (BTM) by pressing and holding the Treble Reset button for 5 seconds. The front panel LED will blink twice to indicate that BTM has been activated. You can deactivate BTM by pressing and holding the Treble Reset button for 5 seconds. The front panel LED will blink once to indicate that BTM has been deactivated. BTM is disabled when power is removed.

Yes you can! To setup Bluetooth™, ensure your speakers are in Bluetooth™ pairing mode, indicated by a flashing white light on the front panel. This is done by selecting the Bluetooth™ option on your remote, or by cycling through the inputs by pushing the volume knob. Doing so will cause your speakers to be displayed in your device’s Bluetooth™ settings.  Once the pairing is complete, the flashing white light will turn solid and you can begin streaming your audio!

If you have misplaced your remote, you can still cycle through the different input channels by pushing the volume knob. Connect your device through the desired input method and cycle through until you hear sound.
