You
will continue to navigate your music and view song/artist information from your
Bluetooth-enabled device. This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device
with a single press of a button. Once paired, the Aura will automatically
re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').

Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not
support all features when used with the H/K Aura.

in the same room as the Aura or your computer to play, pause, skip, and stop the
songs in your iTunes music library. To use the AirPlay feature you need a Mac or
