Activate the Bluetooth function on your device. For most smartphones and tablets, you can find this option in the settings menu. On a Windows PC, you can access Bluetooth settings by clicking on the ‘Start’ button and selecting ‘Settings.’ From there, click on ‘Devices’ and then ‘Bluetooth & other devices.’ Finally, toggle the switch to ‘On.’ On a Mac, click on the ‘Apple’ logo in the top left corner, choose ‘System Preferences,’ then ‘Bluetooth,’ and click on ‘Turn Bluetooth On.’

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pair more than one device with my Yamaha ATS 1080 or 1070 soundbar?

Why can’t my device find the Yamaha ATS 1080 or 1070 soundbar?
Make sure your soundbar is powered on and in Bluetooth pairing mode, with the Bluetooth indicator blinking. Also, confirm that your device’s Bluetooth function is enabled, and both devices are within a 30 feet range. If you still face issues, try restarting both devices or resetting your device’s Bluetooth settings.
Is it possible to connect my Yamaha ATS 1080 or 1070 soundbar to a Bluetooth speaker?
Unfortunately, the Yamaha ATS 1080 and 1070 soundbars can only act as a receiver, not a transmitter. This means they can receive audio from other devices but cannot send audio to another Bluetooth speaker.
How can I improve the audio quality while streaming via Bluetooth?
While Bluetooth streaming is convenient, it may sometimes result in audio compression and reduced quality. To minimize this, make sure both the soundbar and your device support high-quality audio codecs like aptX or AAC.
