Users may also enjoy AM/FM radio reception or they can connect additional media players using one of the two auxiliary inputs. A composite video output lets users watch iPhone/iPod video content on their TV and stereo headphone outputs add to the flexibility of the Duo-i plus. There is also a Subwoofer line level output to let users connect a separate powered subwoofer to the system.
