An Auto Set-up and Room EQ function allows sound to be tailored to individual rooms and, with the optional ASD-1R control dock, the AVR-2307 provides compatibility with third-generation iPod Photo and iPods. The AV receiverrs RS232C socket enables integration with multi-room controllers from Creston or AMX, and its multi-source/multi-zone capabilities allow surround to play in one room, while another enjoys stereo at the same time.
