Connecting a device

Cinesound sofas are designed to work with a variety of devices that have bluetooth functions, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs. To connect a device, switch on your sofa by holding down the power button for 3 seconds, until you hear “Power on” - the blue flashing icon indicates your sofa is now ready to pair with your device. Simply turn on Bluetooth mode on your compatible device, select “Smart Sofa 01A” and pair with it. Your Cinesound sofa will now play audio from the device you have connected.

Using the chilled cup holders

To open the cup holders, short press the open button on the console, and the compartment will begin to slide open from the front of the sofa. You can stop it during opening by short pressing the button again; one final press while either partly or fully open will then close the compartment. While the compartment is open, the cup holders will even chill any drinks you place inside them.
