Both models also feature USB inputs for iPod and iPhone with Direct Play feature. Users can navigate the iPod or iPhone menu using the receiver’s remote control, with the visuals displayed on their TV via the receiver’s On Screen Display. The on-board Compressed Audio Restorer on both models delivers a high quality output from compressed music files. Optional docking stations are also available.
