The Bass control can be found on the rear panel of the Cambridge
Audio Air 100/200 Wireless Music System. Changing this setting
allows the bass/low frequency response of the unit to be tailored to
your taste and the acoustics of your room.
In particular, placing the Air in the corner of a room can increase its
bass response or in open space decrease it, this control is designed
in such a way as to allow the bass response to be adjusted to
achieve a natural sound balance in every room.
The Remote handset also includes Bass – and Bass + buttons which
do the same thing, these allow assessment and adjustment of the
sound balance at a distance.
Renaming your Air
As default, the Air will be named by its serial number, e.g. 'Air 100
008571'. This is how it will appear in the app or when selecting it as
your AirPlay or Bluetooth speaker.
If you wish, you can rename the Air to something of your choice – for
example, 'Air Living Room', or 'Ben's Air'. The easiest way to do this
is during the setup process.
To do this, go to 'Settings > Devices' within the app and select the
Air speaker that you wish to rename. Then press '
i' button. This will
open a webpage within the app where you can rename the Air.
Type the desired new name into the AirPlay Device Name box,
and press 'Change Name'. You will now get a 'new settings were
successfully applied message', and your Air will have been renamed.
You may need to close and restart the app to reconnect to your
newly re-named Air speaker.
Resetting to factory defaults
To reset your Air back to its factory defaults follow the steps below:
