When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, the receiver will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver's remote control to command source players with functions like skip, play and pause. *All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs / players may not work.

    Built–in Wi–Fi allows for a wireless connection with your wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections for enjoying networked audio (PC / NAS) and music streaming services. If a Wi–Fi router is not available, the unique Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via the AV Controller App, AirPlay® etc., but also allows for control of the AV receiver as well.

    AirPlay® Allows Streaming Music to AV receivers

    USB Digital Connection for iPod® and iPhone® on the Front Panel

    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod® and iPhone®, which also charges the iOS device when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod and iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal–loss or interference. You get to enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod and iPhone for basic playback control.

    Compressed Music Enhancer
