From the Manufacturer
A USB port on the front panel and the included iPod to USB cable, allows convenient connection of any iPod or iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference so you enjoy the best possible sound quality.
In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod and iPhone music playback functions, from the comfort of anywhere in the room.
