A multi-zone entertainment center
Furrion's DV1230-BL entertainment system is a versatile, feature-packed multimedia tool that will bring remarkable audio and video performance to your RV or camper. You can enjoy a movie, play some tunes, or listen to the radio — and control it all with a smartphone app. With three zones and independent control, this Furrion receiver is a real powerhouse. You can turn the speakers on or off in Zones 1 and 2, and control a separate audio source and volume level in Zone 3.
Plenty of ways to play
This receiver gives you plenty of entertainment options. The built-in DVD/CD player will handle all your movies and music, plus Bluetooth® connectivity with NFC communication allows you to enjoy MP3, WMA, and MP4 files on your phone.
If your media is stored on another device, you can plug into the front-panel HDMI, AUX, or charging USB ports. An AM/FM tuner allows you to check out local radio wherever you go. Want to stay up and enjoy a movie or music after everyone else has turned in? There's a headphone jack, too.
The system comes with a comprehensive wireless remote control, but the really cool thing is that you don't have to be inside to control the receiver. You can use Furrion's ES Control app to change tunes and zones while you're sitting outside enjoying the fresh air.
