I have the Denon 100th anniversary receiver which is capable of Airplay with an upgrade. Afters spending 2 grand on a receiver, the last thing I wanted to do was couch up more money just so I didn’t have to plug my I pod to my receiver. Well, I ended up getting the upgrade because the reminder to get the upgrade got to be extremely annoying.
I was totally wrong. This is the best thing to happen to home music ever. I reripped my entire music collection into Apple Lossles and stream the lossless songs to my receiver. I use my ipad or iphone to scroll thourgh the library and choose the songs and the artists. I am listing to so much more music now that it is all organized and in 100 unaltered CD quality.
Good to hear Ira. Understandably I agree with you about coifing up extra coin when you’ve already shelled out $2000 on a receiver but it’s worth definitely worth it!
Can the denon receiver with airplay be used with a speaker set with airplay?
