    All -- setting up my zone2 and wondering what control can be achieved from an AVR280?

    Ideally, I would like a wall mounted volume control unit that could also select the source2 from the amp in the next room.

    Firstly can my amp support this and secondly what remote volume controllers are compatible?

    I have also seen wall units that are iPod docs and also serve the remote volume control for zone 2 but cannot seem to source these -- ideas?

    To do this, you need an IR remote in wired to the Zone 2 IR in. In your case, you want a wall unit rather than a receiver and transmitter.

    Sonance manufactures such devices, and you can source these from your Arcam dealer. Russound and Xantech are other sources (AFAIK Xantech is available in UK, although it isn't in CH).
