In addition, DSP and SCENE modes can be engaged, and basic functions such as system volume and muting can be adjusted.

To use the AV Controller App 2.0, consumers will need a device with AndroidOS 2.1 or iOS 4.2 or higher, a wireless Local Area Network (LAN) and a compatible Yamaha Network receiver residing within the same LAN. Upon downloading the app, users can run a demo to gain a full understanding of its many features.
