    I have had a Yamaha DSP-AX1 for 12 months now & I was wondering what the RS 232 socket is for on the back? The instruction manual doesn't say anything much.
    :confused:
    Cheers, Neil

    Hi Neil

    RS232 is a control port. A simple Example would be to connect your amp to a Crestron system (expensive but excellent r/c) which would send commands to your amp to switch inputs, volume control stuff like that.

    cheers

    - Or link it directly to a PC and control it from a Terminal program
    - Also, sometimes, minor upgrades to the system software can be performed through this port.
