Plug in your iPhone and play your own music

The Yamaha stereo receiver at our Shadyside Cabin has a USB port on the front panel, making it easy to plug in an iPhone, iPad or iPod to play your own music. Since we also offer wireless Internet, you can also play from your iTunes library in the cloud, Internet radio stations, Pandora, etc. Our surround sound system includes outdoor speakers so you can also enjoy your own music out on the deck.

To use the USB port, you must make sure the input is set to “USB”. Simply use the input buttons on the front panel to make this change. However, when it’s time to go back to watching DirecTV or a DVD, remember to change the input back to Audio 1.

Sorry Android users, this won’t work for you. And we’ve learned our lesson: future sound systems will include Bluetooth technology.
